I rise above the human follies in my life
You’ll see the shadow of the goat is my guide
Disguise the limit for my pain
I can’t let anyone inside you
Crawl inside limousine of twelve feet
It’s lamentation day for me

All access to my love denied
I am the king of sorrow
My darkened world has burned your eyes
You stared too long into my skies

Solo: OJ

Put these thoughts inside to rest
Decorate with Sunday’s best
Tears of pain they splash my hide
No resting place inside
Coronation of my soul
My friends I have so betrayed you
Now it is done final epicedium
It’s lamentation day for me

Your all invited to my wake
Hope you enjoy the sorrow
Just let the tears pool in your eyes
So you can stare into my sky
My hell is not my own

Solo: Tony

My flames burn higher and higher
In tune with the choir
Eulogy of fire
I am a pyre reborn

Thank you for coming to my show
Hope you enjoyed the sorrow
And if your world does not seem bright
Just stare into my darkened sky

    General CommentEasily the best song done by these guys...

    It seems to me like this song is about a famous person that dies, and the whole world seems to more for him. But I think the persons final wish is to tell them how much his life sucked and how he is glad that he died....

    General CommentI wasn't too much into this song at first but it grew on me and now it's possibly my favorite. The middle section is fucking incredible.
