[CHORUS:]
Cry for the man in the mirror
See his empty eyes, where nothing lies beyond

You reap all the world for nothing
You made fire and curse the flame
You suck dry the fount of wonder
You turn sorrow into hate

A lone wolf, a walking carcass
A sore sight for putrid eyes
What doesn't kill you makes you fouler
A dying whore by heaven's gate

We took the bait... [x2]

The big millstone slowly turning
You make mud from hidden gold
You weigh down and crush my spirit
For every step of the road

Your dead lips embrace deception
My head filled with wasted words
You kill what you can't devour
You wanna drown me in a lake of filth

[CHORUS x2]

We lost the race
And then you spat right in our face

A mouth open, flies ascending
A paradise of empty souls
The black skies an empty ocean
It took the wink of an eye

From our pleasant tree of knowledge
A long shadow touches death
Lose sight of a broken promise
And in a moment nothingness descends

[CHORUS x2]

[SOLO]

[CHORUS x5]
