One is for envy
And one just for spite
The cuts in my heart
They show in your eyes

Dont make it better
The twisting knife
Turns all by itself
On to someone else

Your self-liberation
Will leave this behind
Beyond slings and arrows
That rain on our minds
Youll make it better, shake it off
It never mattered anyway

If we dont make it alive
Well, its a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

And its ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

The banner youre waving
Is burning and red
Its blocking the sunlight
That shines overhead

You against the world
Diamonds and pearls
Voices inside you churn
Watch the city burn

Your own liberation
Will leave them behind
All the slings and arrows
That rain on your mind
Dont make it better, break it 'cause
It never mattered anyway

If we dont make it alive
Well, its a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

And it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

I won't come down
The banner youre waving
Is burning and red
You against the world
Diamonds and pearls
It never mattered, mattered, mattered anyway

If we dont make it alive
Well, its a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long

And it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long
All our light that shines strong
Only lasts for so long
