lyrics

A billion crowd in to gawk and stare
To see the fruits of their labor worn and bare
They say, “that’s not my choice,
I would’ve turned it all around if I’d been given the foresight.”
The soul burns us asunder
Alone

But what am I to become?
My empire reaches to the sun
No peers among you
Alone
The Making, Craving
It was there to take
Destroyer, Molder, in my hands to shape
I couldn’t love someone without losing
And I saw something in the light I didn’t want to see:
Me

A mirror pierced inside

Light-soaked in afterglow
Who would’ve thought you’d get this far?
You're a god now. A god!
Blood-soaked in aftermath
They’ll be speaking your name now!
You're a god now
Alone

Here at the end of life I see
I’m not what I wanted to be
Here at the end of light I feel
These towers won’t deliver me

Keep on, eyes on the prize
Just wait until I show you how!
Don’t tell me what I can’t do
Don’t look back
I have nothing to give you!
Stay on track
This sacrifice is needed to become what I should

Keep strong, eyes on the prize
Just wait until I show you!

Light soaked in afterglow, I always knew I’d get this far
I’m a god now. A god!
Blood-soaked in aftermath, they’ll be speaking my name now!
I’m a god now
Alone
With all the rights I claimed
I created all I was
I’m a god now. A god!
Defend your cowardice
But you reap what you sow
I’m a god now!
Alone

Light fading
All I want is you
Heart straining
Built it all for you
I know they never really knew
Who I was
