Shackled in darkness - the forbidden portrait confined to
it's frame
Unbroken silence - a total misfortune and shame

Ragin obsession - this mask of oppression, it hides your
aggression from view
This tearing suture renounces the love he once knew

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth
You disguise your insolence
Don't deny insanity - mediocrity

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

A fallen fortress sees him beneath starless skies
Subsiding deeper - the final farewell in his eyes

Unspoken hero - distrusted and thrusted within surmise
Seizing intrusion to unveil his clever disguise

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

[Solo]

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies
