There's a vortex inside of my chest.
Let my heart show you the meaning of nothingness.
Every star in the sky is fading now.
I can't breathe in this empty space.
Pieces of broken hearts
turn to dust in the wind.
The icy cold in my soul
is pouring out through my skin.
Shadows all around...
Trembling, shaking ground.
Illusion's all we know,
The truth's not what we're shown.
The moon is my only guide,
its dying breath of light.
Let my memories burn
down to ash tonight.
Drowning in the waves,
An ocean of heartlessness...
(Take your kingdom
Hold your crown up high)
Would you risk it all in the game of life?
Could you win a bet against time?
What is it that you lose each time you gain?
Each door you lock opens up one more.
Like a light, I fade away
But in your heart, I still will stay
If you make a puppet,
Do not let her cut the strings and run away.
Oh, this emptiness,
it torments us so.
A tangled web of lies
Is all we've ever known.
Somebody in the mirror;
Our past selves, perhaps.
