A Gilded Masquerade - Alesana

As the water drips from the sky I start to wander..
If I'm still alive then I have to find the answer..
Could it be that it was a dream and I'm still beside her?
Right before my eyes a tragic surprise, the water stops..

Wickedness will rain and drown us in her
Sorrow and her thirst!
If I hope to survive I must think faster,
I'm losing ground
Should I pull back the veil?
You have the best of me, now taste the worst!
All the glimmers is not gold

I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness
You had me convinced that together we could fly
Until I started scratching at the surface
And I saw beyond your masquerade!
Your body is an illness..

Temples crashing down all around me,
Panic chokes the streets!
The golden city falls
And with it our lives go up in flames

Should I pull back the veil?
You have the best of me, now taste the worst!
All that glimmers is not gold

I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness
You have me convinced that together we could fly
Until I started scratching at the surface
And I saw beyond your masquerade!
Your body is an illness..

(All shall be made clear)

(We've been watching you wander)
My blood runs cold
(There's no need to run farther)
I fear I know the truth

(Come into our arms, brother)
I tear back to cowl and stare into my own eyes!
Who are you? Who are you? Who are you!?
Yeah!

Hey Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey Hey

Hey Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey Hey

I pull back the veil
You have the best of me, now taste the worst!
All that glimmers is not gold

I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness
You have me convinced that together we could fly
Until I started scratching at the surface
And I saw beyond your masquerade!
You body is an illness
And I'm sickened by the though of you!
I may never be the same again

(I may never be the same again)
