Tonight is the beginning, today was the end.
The whell was spinning, your mind will bend.
The hero won't come, the villain will win.
A smoke you bum, this night we sin.
As you turn to me, what can you see?
The fog will clear, yet I'm near.
A thousand lies, your beauty dies.
How could you find, a broken mind?
Without a care, it's Hell you dare.
Everything has gone away, where are you?
A thousand nights, we dim the lights.
Can I take control of you, would you mind?
I'll show you what's true, happiness you'll find.
A pile of corpses, in this romance.
Adjust your lenses, and we'll take this chance.
A thousand stares, with not a care.
A lovely body, all for us.
A kiss so shoddy, another fuss.
Exotic nights, are not a joy.
Bloodied fights, are ours so coy.
The rose you hold, glistens so red.
We'll not grow old, like the newly wed.
My soul you sold, though I'm not dead.
This night, has only just begun.
We wait in fright, for the mourning sun.
The room grows dull, not a soul around.
My heart grows full, as we go underground.
This contradiction, has us all fooled.
An amputation, thought our hearts to have cooled.
A thousand smiles, a broken cry.
It's been a while, since I had the chance to die.
Without a care, without a care!
A thousand stares, a thousand prepare...
