A Gilded Masquerade

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 had 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 had 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

All shall be made clear
We?ve been watching you wander
There?s no need to run farther
Come into our arms, brother
Now we can be one forever
My blood runs cold I fear I know the truth
I tear back to cowl and stare into my own eyes!

Who are you? Who are you? Who are you!?
Yeah!
Hey!

I pull back the veil

You had 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 (and I?m sickened by the though of you!)

I may never be the same again, I may never be the same again
