Farewell goodnight last one out turn out the lights 
And let me be, let me die inside 
Let me know the way from of this world of hate in you
'Cause the die is cast and the bitch is back
And we're all dead yeah we're all dead
 Inside the future of a shattered past
I lie just to be real, and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
 Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings 

 Bless the martyrs and kiss the kids
For knowing better, for knowing this
'Cause you're all whores and I'm a fag
And I've got no mother and I've got no dad
To save me the wasted, save me from myself 
I lie just to be real, and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
 Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings 

Everybody's lost just waiting to be found 
Everyone's a thought just waiting to fade
So fuck it all 'cause I don't care
So what somehow somewhere we dared 
To try to dare, to dare for a little more, yeah yeah
I lie to just to be real, and I'd die just to feel
Why do the same old things keep on happening?
 Because beyond my hopes there are no reasons
