MELODRASTIQUE

You can have what you want, what you wish, what you greed

But nothing really matters 'cause it's everything that you need

You don't seem to understand you're missing something

Someone around, human warmth is clearly out of the scene

No one's in sight to see what you don't have to give

No more faces around to watch, the mirrors make you live

No eyes, just you, they've left you for some lonely days

No use for your pearls if they don't shine bright in others' eyes

REFRAIN

You push them down

Only to realize

That high up above

You're left alone with a crown

You won't bow

Consumed all by your pride

Can't touch them with a glove

Your kingdom is a ghost town

Don't you ever have enough, don't you ever be

A materialistic one, you have, well therefore you exist

You thought you could shut the hunger still screaming loud

To have or not to have, you chose the throne over the crowd

You can't have what you want, what you wish, what you greed

'Cause all that really matters is now long gone and out of reach

You don't see that between you and me there's a breach

Your stone cold heart might in fact hide that behind the mask you bleed

REFRAIN

BRIDGE

You can't be happy

If you haven't felt sad

To rise in flames you'll

Have to start from the ash

You'll be hurt again

You'll fall back on your knees

But after some time then

You'll use it as your fuel

SOLO

You gotta get outta here, try to live again

Your castle of loneliness, it might have kept you 'way from pain

But you'll soon realize that from this life there's no gain

Move on move out, they're waiting, it was not your life back then

REFRAIN

Don't let them down

You will finally see

There's higher than above

The sun so rose in your town

Don't give up

You can finally be

So take off your glove

A new world lies ahead now

They'll push you up

Only to let you down...
