We are the center of a spectacle
We are the focus of our own lies
Tread the well-worn path to respectable
Abuse the promise of our pretty lives

We so often felt ourselves invincible
We drank and laughed, and challenged the very gods in the sky
Now, we've become invisible
Nothing left but the ashes of our pretty lives

These are the moments make our pretty lives
These are desires 'keep us down
Desperate, we drown, in all (but) the candles we light
These are the wishes to never be found
These are the wishes we never should've found.

There was
Holes in the armour come from our own knives
Punch-drunk, we stagger in the firelight of principle
And carry the ashes of our pretty lives.

[Alternate Chorus]

These are the moments make our pretty lives
These are desires 'keep us down
Desperate, we drown, in all the shame and all the lies
These are the wishes we never should've found.
These are the moments make our pretty lives
These are desires 'keep us down
Desperate we live, and desperate we die
These are the wishes we never should've found.
