lyrics

You,
Breaking all I ever knew,
Well I guess I never knew you,
Hate to change the tone,
Now you know you're alone,
Gonna break your heart tonight,
You tell yourselves you're gonna be alright,
In the end you're compromised,
With your dead disguise,
And your damaged pride,

Build a coffin and a hearse, sing a eulogy,
There's nowhere left to hide,
Watch the bridges that we burned capsize,
What we built was a rehearsal for you to see,
Sit back and close your eyes,
And prepare to say your last goodbyes,

Go, cut me out the picture,
Drown me in the paint,
Exposing your true colours,
As the memories suffocate,
Gonna save ourselves tonight,
You tell your friends your gonna win the fight,
I can see you dancing down the aisle,
Advertising lies, with a crooked smile,

Build a coffin and a hearse, sing a eulogy,
There's nowhere left to hide,
Watch the bridges that we burned capsize,
What we built was a rehearsal for you to see,
Sit back and close your eyes,
And prepare to say your last goodbyes,

And it's gonna be great,
Watching all the past incinerate,
You saved me from the flames of fear and hate,
And I want you to know,
That your masquerade,
Was never nothing more than a hand grenade,
The wreckage dies but the embers glow,
Time to start this show and let this let down go!

Build a coffin and a hearse, sing a eulogy,
There's nowhere left to hide,
Watch the bridges that we burned capsize,
What we built was a rehearsal for you to see,
Sit back and close your eyes,
And prepare to say your last goodbyes,

Build a coffin and a hearse, sing a eulogy,
There's nowhere left to hide,
Watch the bridges that we burned capsize,
What we built was a rehearsal for you to see,
Sit back and close your eyes,
And prepare to say your last goodbyes.
