LyricsEdit

Finally, the hills are without eyes

They are tired of painting a dead man's face red with their own blood


We used to love, having so much to lose

Blink your eyes just once and see everything in ruins


Did you ever hear what I told you?

Did you ever read what I wrote you?

Did you ever listen to what we played?

Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?

Did we play to become only pawns in the game?

How blind can you be, don't you see?

You chose the long road, but we'll be waiting


Bye bye beautiful

Bye bye beautiful


Jacob's ghost for the girl in white

Blindfold for the blind dead siblings walking the dying earth

Noose around a choking heart

Eternity torn apart

Slow toll now the funeral bells


"I need to die to try"


Did you ever hear what I told you?

Did you ever read what I wrote you?

Did you ever listen to what we played?

Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?

Did we play to become only pawns in the game?

How blind can you be, don't you see?

You chose the long road, but we'll be waiting


Bye bye beautiful

Bye bye beautiful


It's not the tree that forsakes the flower

But the flower that forsakes the tree

Someday I'll learn to love these scars

Still fresh from the red-hot blade of your words


How blind can you be, don't you see...?

How blind can you be, don't you see...?

How blind can you be, don't you see...?

...that the gambler lost all he does not need...


Did you ever hear what I told you?

Did you ever read what I wrote you?

Did you ever listen to what we played?

Did you ever let in what the world said?

Did we get this far just to feel your hate?

Did we play to become only pawns in the game?

How blind can you be, don't you see?

You chose the long road but we'll be waiting


Bye bye beautiful

Bye bye beautiful

Bye bye beautiful

Bye, bye, bye, bye!
