(He survived, but his destiny burned off in the blast Disillusion tore off his wings, and when he stepped outside Into childhood's end, and the moon was so bright It looked like a white hole punched through the cape of night But from that moment forth a moon was just a moon and a star was just a star And nothing more... And the morning came, and the sun did rise But he was trapped in the corridors where it spent the night And he could not, or he would not hear our cries -- ) So take everything, break everything, fake everything, fuck everything It's all nothing if you want, but that's not what I want I'd give anything to see you feel again once more Stand alone Beside you Listening for a sign of life from inside of you Suffering some gift of god Pursuing, hunting you Yes, life is sour when you hit the ground Moments wasted, loves gone foul However sweet the fruit, the prickly skin, the bitter core And nausea for desert So fuck everything, take everything, fake everything, break everything When you've been broken, when you've brought low You want to smash everything, those who still care most of all And I can see the witches, burning in your eyes But they're not the ones who sold you these lies We're not the ones who bound your hands and turned the spears in your side May the kings all drown in the blood of their conquests And the flags all die at the tops of their poles May the gluttons be impaled upon the ribs of the starving And the priests all sell their souls May the dreamers all awaken in a world that is empty May the lovers betray and be betrayed May the poets all choke on their own sweet lies And all bow before their fates May the seekers wander lost through the valleys and the deserts And lay down to sleep upon stones May the sick flourish and the healthy be afflicted And may rats fight over the bones May hate rule pitilessly over a world of the damned Where the rivers cease to run Let the sun set forever on this broken heartland Let the kingdom come (Bring me hearts - I'll break them Give me poisons - I'll take them If I could If I could Trade this ache For indifference All fucked up With bitterness All fucked up) Yeah take everything, fake everything, break everything, fuck everything Heart as black as the sun One the day that will come when it never ever rises again And where do you go when you've lose your way Inside, and everywhere you turn it's all the same Where do you go when there's nowhere to go You froze in your tracks, something broke and you Gave up And it makes me want to cry An ocean of tears to flow through these filthy streets Stained with so many years Of smothered hopes and desires denied The faceless masses, paralyzed To drown all we are, all we've ever been Better cease to exist than to endure like this And set you free You and all your kind To be free in death if not in life But the rest is secrets, silence now If night has fallen, sleep well The rest is silence, secrets now If night has fallen, sleep well Sleep well
