Farewell, good night, last one out turn out the lights
And let me be, let me die inside
Let me know the way through this world of hate in you

'Cause the dye is cast and the bitch is back
And we're all dead, yeah, we're all dead

Inside the future of a shattered past
I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no feelings

Bless the martyrs and kiss the kids
For knowing better, for knowing this
'Cause you're all whores and I'm a fag
And I've got no mother and I've got no dad

To save me from the wasted, save me from myself
I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no feelings

[Incomprehensible]

Everybody's lost just waiting to be found
Everyone's a thought just waiting to fade

So fuck it all 'cause I don't care
So what somehow somewhere we dared
To try, to dare for a little more

I lie just to be real and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
'Cause beyond my hopes there are no reasons
