Raise high monolithic statues so fragile. As they fall,
I am ever enthralled.
Gaze, lie and smirk in time.
Your arrogance will suit you well
'Til fashion is dispelled.

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion,
You're going out (going out) forever unknown.
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion,
You're going out (going out) forever unknown.

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema.
I will remain, forever will remain.
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn.

Without habitation you'll never find a soul inside.
No life, but nothing's died.
No lights, but quite the show (just as long as no one ever knows
All motion is pantomime).

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion,
You're going out (going out) forever unknown.
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion,
You're going out (going out) forever unknown.

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema.
I will remain, forever will remain.
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn.

Dancing in the rain of descending ash,
Dancing on your grave, I'll see you all falling.
Dancing in the rain of descending ash,
Dancing in your dust, I'll see you all falling.

I'd stop it, had you a heart.
I'd stop it, had you a heart.

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema.
I will remain, forever will remain.
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn.

From above a rain of ashes descends anathema.
I will remain, forever will remain.
From below, in my seclusion, look up to the sky to see
See paper wings and watch them burn.
