A PERFECT CIRCLE lyrics - Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums

A PERFECT CIRCLE
"Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums"
(Billy Howerdel / Maynard James Keenan)

Don't fret, precious, I'm here
Step away from the window
(Step away from the window)
And go back to sleep

Safe from pain, and truth, and choice
And other poison devils
See, they don't give a fuck about you
Like I do (I do...)

Countin' bodies like sheep (Like sheep...)
Countin' bodies like sheeps (Like sheeps...)

Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Countin' bodies like sheeps (Like sheeps...)

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheeps (Like sheeps...)
Go back to sleep...

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheeps (Like sheeps...)
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep (Like sheep...)
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Countin' bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
(Just sleep, just sleep, just sleep)
Go back to sleep

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive, and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices, son
One and the same, I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself
