lyrics

It's all superiority;
Your wildest dreams,
A yearning notoriety;
Knife in back, end justifies the means

Live atop the highest peak,
Plated in gold,
The altitude will make you weak;
As you fall you'll see your name dissolve.

A fantasy that will not hide
The casualty that lives inside
Reality will always be
A lingering memory

It's all so very saleable;
With a lie on your face,
The taste you bring is unbearable -
But taste can be so easily erased.

Ambition lies in distant dreams;
You're a king with no crown -
As you're left to walk the same old streets,
With the pain that haunts you in your cold hometown

A fantasy that will not hide
The casualty that lives inside
Reality will always be
A lingering memory

(Keys Solo)

A fantasy that will not hide
The casualty that lives inside
Reality will always be
A lingering memory

The time will come and you will know -
The demons come to overthrow;
When all of this will cease to be;
A memory to you and me.
