Once we
We were the young and the tragic
Trying to make our magic in
This world of temporary things

We were
Searching for sweet perfection
Turning it to affliction while
Not knowing fact from fiction

I was thoughtless
Never that cold and heartless
It was a play reserved for you
When you wanted something new

No more
Call me when you are sober
You are too drunk to remember now
I did write you a love song
You got the words wrong

The pledge, the turn, the prestige
Are not worth anything
When we have to perform them
In front of a blind audience

We all have made our mistakes
Mistakes we’ve paid for
I’ll always be a monster
But not your monster anymore

In the end we
Gave a birth to a hopeless dream
We had it all but prestige and
I have grown to hate our child

I learned
After we closed the curtain
And you had made me disappear
I was not the magician
But the assistant

The pledge, the turn, the prestige
Are not worth anything
When we have to perform them
In front of a blind audience

We all have made our mistakes
Mistakes we’ve paid for
I’ll always be a monster
But not your monster anymore

I have no more cards up my sleeve
And you’re no enchanter
I might have been playing the wolf
But you were the vampire

The pledge, the turn, the prestige
Are not worth anything
When we have to perform them
In front of a blind audience

We all have made our mistakes
Mistakes we’ve paid for
I’ll always be a monster
But not your monster anymore

The pledge, the turn, the prestige
Are not worth anything
When we have to perform them
In front of a blind audience

We all have made our mistakes
Mistakes we’ve paid for
I’ll always be a monster
But not your monster anymore…

    My InterpretationI think this song's about the twists & turns and power shifts we face in our relationships and in life in general. Furthermore, it speaks of the poison that romance can become once it atrophies and how much it can take from someone, in turn bringing out the beast inside.
