Painting lines around us, when the shadows start to fade
The wheel of fortune turns around, it turned down for the worse,
I broke it down and burned it, so we will have a choice,

The architects of our own demise, Appear so fast in the mirror,
How easy is it to abandon all hope
It is my kingdom, my heaven

But it's built upon a lie!

I am reaching my highest
Now I'm reaching down for you
Oh f**k!
How easy is it to abandon all hope
It is my kingdom, my heaven

Like towers before us, crush and burn
(And there's no shelter for no one)
Those columns can't hold me anymore
And now I fall
And now I fall

Tides are rising, they rise so high
The skies cracked open and they never stop (they never stop) to cry
The lost and broken heights, where no one realized
I shout a thousand times – it's time to fly!

(Before the lie did stand strong, but now the truth lies bitter)

This is not the real thing, aspire high but crush so low
It’s not the end of the journey
And oh those spires soar so high, I can not tell where
They end up, and where the end begins

You can defy it, it's still right there
No one can fight it, just let it rain

Like towers before us, crush and burn
(And there's no shelter for no one)
Those columns can't hold me anymore
And now I fall
And now I fall

Tides are rising, they rise so high
The skies cracked open and they never stop (they never stop) to cry
The lost and broken heights, where no one realized
I shout a thousand times – it's time to fly!

(... Same story as it happened in Babylon, I say let them towers - burn)

... Let them towers burn, Burn Burn, burn!
(Before the towers stood strong, now I can see them crumble)

Towers before us, no more as they were.
