1.
Your talk of revolution Turned into cheap revenge Left the truth on a bloodied table Exposed and left for dead Fractured and medicated Join the ghosts that line the streets Raise your glass up and be counted Take your war before your peace You are the morning You are the morning And I'm death in the afternoon You are the morning You are the morning And I'm death in the afternoon Tell me all your dirty secrets And I will show you mine Promises in blood are spoken A brotherhood until you die Embrace your contradictions Bathe in the beauty of Kings and queens of a golden gutter Shining brighter than the sun You are the morning You are the morning And I'm death in the afternoon You are the morning You are the morning And I'm death in the afternoon Trapped on this carousel Of bitterness and truth It's spinning faster than you ever wanted to The doors have closed And locked behind you
2.
Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown The greatest expectations sold you out The nightmare of what could and might have been Plays on Beware the tiger scratching at your door An atom bomb just begging to explode You bought ten thousand reasons not to stay In paradise Paradise Instinctive hunger To sense your weakness Bright amber eyes Will tear you apart Bright amber eyes That swear paradise But eat you alive Bright amber eyes Will tear you apart Bright amber eyes That swear paradise But eat you alive
3.
So catch my attention And throw it away I want you to stand above I want you to stand above the crowd I want to feel honest But just for a day I want to believe it's you I want to believe it til I wake You won't even notice And hell could freeze over You won't even notice I'm gone So in love with your own drug You won't even notice You won't even know So in love So in love with your own lie You won't even notice You won't even know So catch my attention And lead me astray I want to be closer now I want to be standing in the flames You won't even notice And hell could freeze over You won't even notice I'm gone So in love with your own drug You won't even notice You won't even know So in love So in love with your own lie You won't even notice You won't even know You won't even notice And hell could freeze over You won't even notice I'm gone So in love with your own drug You won't even notice You won't even know So in love So in love with your own lie You won't even notice You won't even know

Against the grain When heaven was laughing in my face And seize the day From out of the jaws of past mistakes These skeletons Try to hold me down and leave me rotting in the dirt I won't look down To witness the wreckage on the ground It's too late now To ask for the mercy of the crowd Watch the matador Kiss the sacred cow with one hand on his sword Assassination of your idols Lines get blurred as time goes flying by I'm walking the tight rope Diffusing the bomb I'm looking for the future I lost in the past I'm dining with the Devil And I'm spilling my guts Just a heathen's confession Where I've said too much Faith slowly wearing out How far do you think we'll fall Faith slowly overcome To satisfy our greed As tonight we dine in hell Tonight we dine in hell Assassination of your idols Lines get blurred as time goes flying by I'm walking the tight rope Diffusing the bomb I'm looking for the future I lost in the past I'm dining with the Devil And I'm spilling my guts Just a heathen's confession Where I've said too much
5.
Make no bones A murder of crows fall from the sky Make no bones Your tragedy makes me so a live I've been waiting for this day Waiting for some retribution You said I'm just a ghost Parading through your disillusion Could this kiss of death be love Make no bones A violent future in black and white Make no bones I'm praying my conscience will survive I've been waiting for this day Waiting for your execution You said I'm just a sin That left you begging for your absolution Waiting for this day Waiting for this day Consequences that once held us back Disappear We're all killers deep inside Denied We're out of time To reconcile With this lust I can't remember when I lost control Following such basic instincts now
