lyrics

Long are the nights of decadence and despair and denial, but I've perfected the art of feeling nothing at all. 
Uncertain, apathetic and waiting for change. Doing nothing at all. Nothing at all. 

And you beg for a savior, though there's nothing to save. 
Still you're haunted by someone that you never became. 

We become who we are.

We wanted more than the gods were prepared to relinquish, so we suffered the fate of a thousand before. 
The hopeless wear the masks of the former romantics, and linger now in disgust at what they might have become. 

Contemptible and complacent, we've surrendered ourselves. 
And we drank of the water though they'd poisoned the well. 
Still we beg for a savior, though there's nothing to save.
Still we're haunted by someone that we never became. 

We become who we are. We become who we always were. 

However heavy the crown, heavier still is the heart of the king. 
However long is the night, longer still is the day that it brings. 
Our moment is gone. 
Our moment is gone. 

We become who we are. We become who we always were. 
We become who we are. We become who we always were. 

And we waited for something to save us, whispered softly our final farewells. Beautiful is the path to the gallows, trusted everyone else but ourselves. 
Fleeting thoughts, empty bottles, and embers- we screamed all the words too important to whisper. This is the night! Now is the time! We are the gods that we never could find.
These are the moments composed of surrender and I can't remember the last time that I felt alive.
But for here, but for now, I am fine.
