Fairytales won't last, my friend Every story has an end All I once held dear has turned into Something else It's this part I'll have to play Witnessing it all decay And that's what hurts the most Oh, so inglorious
I won't take this anymore I refuse to see you fall So I left you at the fork When you needed me the most
Realize you're paid to fake it We're breaking the illusion All of your lies for trust Still we're inglorious? Still we're inglorious?
Now when facing victory Can we still tell apart the liberty From misery? It's desaturating In the colorless delight All your enemies were right When there's nothing left You'll see how you fade away Fade away
Realize you're paid to fake it We're breaking the illusion All of your lies for trust You think I'll just eat this up? Your crown cracks Your throne splits Along with the delusion All of your lies for trust Still we're inglorious? Fairytales won't last, my friend And you may take your prize But how many corpses did you leave behind?
Strip a man down to his skin What's of worth is found within You lost yourself along the way And for the truth you're blaming me My only crime is honesty
