Light another cigarette to burn me through this loneliness A glass of wine, to pass the time Don't look at me like it's a crime Not quite sure the shape I'm in Some days, feels like I'm wearing thin My demons have come back again They're laughing at me And if I should die today, please tell my mother I'll be okay And tell my father just how much it meant that he was proud of me And if you'll understand, it's not the ending I had planned Always thought I'd win the race and be somebody Afternoons and coffee spoons Just waiting here for something new So caught up in this carnival and all its pretty games So roll the dice and pray to God it doesn't turn against me Please pass me by, pick someone else I promise I will never tell And if I die today, please tell my mother I'll be okay And tell my father just how much it meant that he was proud of me And if you'll understand, it's not the ending I had planned Always thought I'd win the race and be somebody Can't be more than what we are Maybe this time, I've gone too far No turning 'round, no coming back, Just you and me so silent We are chasing all the things That we can never have And sometimes it just breaks your heart To recognize you're drowning In the sweetest lie And if I die today, please tell my mother I'll be okay And tell my father just how much it meant that he was proud of me And if you'll understand, it's not the ending I had planned Always thought I'd win the race and be somebody

You’re gonna make them pay… You’re gonna show them all… How they never should have thought that they were above you. ‘Cause you’re a mastermind… With the perfect crime. Infallible and unstoppable, oh the things that you… Oh you’re such a big man on the Internet. Always such a saint when their eyes are on you. And you’ve got that smile, Like the whole world is under your finger. Always the winner You little monster, You little monster, you You little monster. You’re unbelievable. When you play the victim it’s a sellout show. You've got everybody begging for more... And the truth is that you almost believe it yourself. You were born to be such a little... You little monster, You little monster, you You little monster. And you’re oh so clever You’re the great decider You’ll put everything right where it belongs… You little monster, You little monster, you You little monster.

Spectacle 03:50
You’re such a big hit We got tickets Wanna play the game? Well you’d better not slip Make you millions, maybe more Screaming your name as we hit the floor You know the script Here’s the twist Bet you never thought that we’d want it like this Yeah we love it when you’re high Even better when you’re low Come on, how you gonna end it? We gotta know… We need celebrity, It’s the only commodity Fifteen minutes if you show enough skin Come on, do it for the fame and everybody wins We need celebrity It’s the only philosophy It’s everything you ever thought it could be And it’s right now, so hit the lights… Spectacle, here we go, It’s time for the big show. And maybe it’s all that we are now Our whole lives just a spectacle Never be enough, never have enough Never live enough of your life to satisfy What we wouldn’t give for the fame, We’ll kill for the fame, Turn the television on and all you’ll see is our name. Everybody wants to be somebody Some for the love and some for the greed And we don’t know why, we don’t know why But everybody’s looking for something to believe Spectacle, here we go, It’s time for the big show. And maybe it’s all that we are now Our whole lives just a spectacle Screen to screen It can be your everything Show you things you won't believe We don't care what it means 'Cause it doesn't mean a thing until it's on TV Spectacle, here we go, It’s time for the big show. And maybe it’s all that we are now Our whole lives just a spectacle

Here comes redemption Here comes the rise of a drowning sun A high tide to the desert High time for all the things we’ve made to come undone. And we laugh And we cry And we love And we fall to pieces We can’t change who we are... You can’t hold on… Yeah, it’s time to let go Time to let everything wash away Here comes the flood Yeah, it’s time to let go Save what you can and give into the rain Here comes the flood Here comes the silence Here comes the end of the darkest dream It's like we’re lost in a fever Watching pale reflections of what could have been And we dance And we crawl And we climb And we crave what we can’t have We can’t change who we are... You can’t hold on Yeah, it’s time to let go Time to let everything wash away Here comes the flood Yeah it’s time to let go Save what you can and give into the rain Here comes the flood Here comes the flood... It’s a lonely life But you can't hold on You can’t hold on Yeah, it’s time to let go Time to let everything wash away Here comes the flood Yeah it’s time to let go Save what you can and give into the rain Here comes the flood
