In every life it has been said
There comes a time to join the dead
Admit there is no second chance
And join death in a final dance

Across the floor eternity
Until the final moments bled
And in the dark to take his hand
Accept that it is time to wed

I don't know what I'm thinking
Because all that I see
Is his face grinning
Mephistopheles

I need to find an answer
For this one can not be
Within the words of
Mephistopheles

Tell me what you think
Tell me what you know
Did you really think
That there would be an ever after?

Do you think I'm scared?
Tell me does it show
When inside this deafness
I can always hear his whispering

There comes a time you decide
What from your life will be real
What scars you will keep alive
What you are willing to heal

But can I gamble this night
With everything that I am
And can I erase my life
Or do I stay here and be?

Tell me what you think
Tell me what you know
Did you really think
That there would be an ever after?

Do you think I'm scared?
Tell me does it show
When inside this deafness
I can always hear his laughter

I don't know what I'm thinking
Because all that I see
Is his face grinning
Mephistopheles

I need to find an answer
For this one can not be
Within the words of
Mephistopheles

Don't need this path before me
Don't need forgotten glory
Don't need these threats of violence
Don't need eternal silence

Don't need these midnight visions
Don't need to make decisions
Don't need to be uncertain
Don't need this final curtain

Somewhere out there he still gazes
As I wander through his mazes
Death and life here, truth or lies
Every thought is well disguised

Now it is too late
This path to take
Don't want to lose
My life this way

Medusa dreams
The dead still scream
Don't want to see
My life betrayed

All these things are now before me
Endless death or timeless glory
On this night of ghosts returning
To the light of bridges burning

All these things are now before me
Endless death or timeless glory
On this night of ghosts returning
To the light of bridges burning

Now it is too late
This path to take
Don't want to see my life be

Tell me what you think
Tell me what you know
Did you really think
That there would be an ever after?

Do you think I'm scared?
Tell me does it show
When inside this deafness
I can always hear his laughter

I don't know what I'm thinking
Because all that I see
Is his face grinning
Mephistopheles

I need to find an answer
For this one can not be
Within the words of
Mephistopheles

The cost of patience
When there's no time before me
Of hesitation
All for this twisted glory
And my salvation
The cost of how it's gotten
The cost of what's gained
All forgotten, all forgotten
