lyrics

Suffer the rotten war
That's spurring us on
Follow the warming lights
Burning neon
Cruising the empty streets
Until the break of dawn
Flame red of the morning sun
Crushing the horizon

Fade into black
Tears as the credits roll down
Burned into the screen
My twisted queen
Can't be unseen

You'll be my harlequin
Dance to my song
Trapped in a mortal shell
But you can't do wrong
Batten the hatches down
Before we're lost to the storm
Feel electric warning signs
A prickling of the air

Fade into black
Tears as the credits roll down
Burned into the screen
My twisted queen
Can't be unseen
Paused forever
In our final scene

A frozen naked stare
Hollowed from despair

Feeling the ground
Beneath our feet
Disintegrate
Seeing the hounds
Bored & unfed
Begin to salivate
Smelling their last meal

Rippling of the water
Turns to breaking tidal waves
Deeming that there's nothing
Left to save

I'll be the first
To put my head on the block
As we count all the seconds
Down on the clock
Take my hand
Feel it shaking
As the axe starts to drop
Hold me tight
Keep on watching
As the blood takes flight

We were simply born in the wrong time
Simply trapped in the wrong minds
Lost to all of our senses
Always wanting to change shape
Knowing that there's no escape
Reaching out for the rip chord
But still wanting to fall
Our lives have never seemed so small
Our youth now far behind
Innocence now revealed
As being the mask of the blind
