lyrics

Welcome to my game
Of fortune and fame
Try to hide your confidence, yeah
Pass the blame
To everyone who sees you for your ways
A Snake in the grass
You sit and laugh
While all around you
Are thrashing and burning
In agony stained
Feeding from misery
Each death an award that you gain

Take my life for your fame
You do what you need
Chasing ruin’s a game
Planting the seeds of hate

Into the annals of fortune and fame
Chasing destruction and feeding upon your pain
Nothing’s too far, you’ll do what it takes
To justify all of your crimes
Making your fortune it’s all just a game
Seeking misfortune to give you your accolades
Darkened and narrow your vision is blind
‘Till the fire burns out and you’re left with the
Ashes of Lies

Always a failure
Lose every game
On the attack
Looking for someone that you can blame
Taking no chances
Protecting your name
Winning or losing
For you it’s the same
Out on the front lines
Height of the brave
Tell all the world
That you’ll do what it takes
Fight for freedom
But don’t fight a day
Lies and denial
Won’t stand in your way

Fairness abandoned for fame
Making the truth serve your need
Ignoring terror and pain
The vultures come to feed

Into the annals of fortune and fame
Chasing destruction and feeding upon your pain
Nothing’s too far, you’ll do what it takes
To justify all of your crimes
Making your fortune it’s all just a game
Seeking misfortune to give you your accolades
Darkened and narrow your vision is blind
‘Till the fire burns out and you’re left with the
Ashes of Lies
