Lantern in the Window

from Limboland by The Stanfields

/

lyrics

A devil is dancing in the gloam
With twilight eyes and cloven chrome
The master of the masquerade
Put a lantern in the window
Put a lantern in the window

He preys on the weak - he feeds on the lame
And snarls at those who utter his name
As an omen of dark days to come
Put a lantern in the window
Put a lantern in the window

For those without a voice
Who languish in the shadows
For those without a choice
Put a lantern in the window
Put a lantern in the window

A devil is dancing in the wake
Of a broken land he means to take
By force of will and grand acclaim
Put a lantern in the window

His silken tongue is savage and bold
Slithering sweet and a sight to behold
When you retire to your bed tonight
Put a lantern in the window
Put a lantern in the window

For those out in the cold
Who linger in their sorrow
For those outside the fold
Put a lantern in the window
Put a lantern in the window

Lest you awake to a world that is gone
A piece at a time in the hours before dawn
Embers and ashes where monoliths stood
A devil presiding o’er all that is good

Laughing in your face
And basking in his bank roll
For those who fall off the pace
Leave a lantern in the window
Leave a lantern in the window
And brace yourself for the end times
But keep your hearts aglow
