It comes from all we're giving in seemingly endless supply
As signals cross defiantly into this volatile mix we charge
And the stubborn mind repeats the errors
To challenge our grounds

Either soar above or the detour takes you right back down
To where no one wants to see
Misgivings in this starry nightlight, fill in the blanks
That one will fall, to the haunts and horrors

There is nothing left, a mere shadow when adrenaline runs dry
There is nothing there, empty prop when adrenaline runs dry
It gets you deep down low
As they told you of the blazing heights

The stage from which the world is viewed
Is the mirror to shatter the image
The crypt he kept for hiding retreat from another attack
Painlessly forgiving a refuge in deceptive black

It works within the system, and they won't understand
A lesser known deceiver will fool you even more

Taunt the wasted, it's all about nothing
What to squeeze within the span of attention
Brought to ground, let the chaos pass
That one will fail by the screams and terrors
