Lyrics
I welcome you to paradise
It's what you wished for
A mountain of filth haunted by tortured shrieks of the dead
I know you'll love it here

Time stops and once again i'm stranded nowhere
And yet again I'm so confused
Why stop
It honestly can't get much worse
And I'm better off here than on my own

Step right up, come one and all
I will be your host tonight
Welcome to the dreams of hell
You're in for a wild ride

It's strange but I feel right at home
It's odd but I don't want to go
Am I a fool, am I crazy to want to stay, do I belong
Another time, another place, this will do just fine

Foolish mortal, what did you think
That you'd shackle the hands of time
And defeat the gods themselves
Sweet vanity you're my favorite sin
Swallow mountains and choke on them
Then drown yourself on Lazarus
Spread your wings and grab the sun
Sweet vanity you're my favorite sin

Pretty lady let's dance
I bet you thought that you could choose to leave
Everybody is dead
You're all alone and i'm the one, the only one, yeah

I'll do whatever it takes
Oh, what's another mistake

Back and forth and upside down as we laugh ourselves to sleep
We're trying to escape
An evil place so full of wonder taking a hold of me

Feeling the pressure, I should be over you
Slave to the pleasure, I can't get over you
Tonight we'll try to pretend that we're alright, yea
Say its forever, don't let me fade away

Everything's gone, everything's lost
What have I done, can it be undone
Where did you go, will I find you
This is our home, sweet home
The canvas went up in flames

Pretty lady let's dance
I bet you thought that you could choose to leave
Everybody is dead
You're all alone and i'm the one, the only one, yeah

I'll do whatever it takes
Oh, what's another mistake

Back and forth and upside down as we laugh ourselves to sleep
We're trying to escape
An evil place so full of wonder taking a hold of me

Feeling the pressure, I should be over you
Slave to the pleasure, I can't get over you
Tonight we'll try to pretend that we're alright, yea
Say its forever, don't let me fade away
I'm everything you want, I'm everything you need
You're everything to me, don't let me fade away

Foolish mortal, what did you think
That you'd shackle the hands of time
And defeat the gods themselves
Sweet vanity you're my favorite sin
Swallow mountains and choke on them
Then drown yourself on Lazarus
Spread your wings and grab the sun
Sweet vanity you're my favorite sin

Parting is such sweet sorrow
Come back to me soon my dear
I will be counting the days
Farewell my love
This is our home, sweet home
Drench yourself in the cries of the damned
Spill their blood
Bathe in bliss as we torture the sane
Help me, God
