Finally the hills are without eyes, they are tired of painting
A dead man's face red with their own blood
They used to love having so much to lose
Blink your eyes just once and see everything in ruins

Did you ever hear what I told you?
Did you ever read what I wrote you?
Did you ever listen to what we played?
Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?
Did we play to become only pawns in the game?
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting?

Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful

Jacob's ghost for the girl in white, blindfold for the blind
Dead siblings walking the dying earth
Noose around a choking heart, eternity torn apart
Slow toll now the funeral bells

I need to die to feel alive

Did you ever hear what I told you?
Did you ever read what I wrote you?
Did you ever listen to what we played?
Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?
Did we play to become only pawns in the game?
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting?

Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful

It's not the tree that forsakes the flower
But the flower that forsakes the tree
Someday I'll learn to love these scars
Still fresh from the red-hot blade of your words

How blind can you be, don't you see?
How blind can you be, don't you see?
How blind can you be, don't you see?
That the gambler lost all he does not have

Did you ever hear what I told you?
Did you ever read what I wrote you?
Did you ever listen to what we played?
Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?
Did we play to become only pawns in the game?
How blind can you be, don't you see
You chose the long road but we'll be waiting?

Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye beautiful
Bye, bye, bye, bye
