Virtue is lost

Beyond this sleek veneer
Beneath the neon existence
Her face is grey
And everything she longs for turns to black
The chemicals bring little vindication
And white lines lace every vein
Does she realise what she's become?

But she's not waking
And she's still failing
But she's not waking
She's still failing.
Go.

Follow the siren's song,
To face this empty cycle.
Searching the darkest nights
Searching the silence

And does it make you sick?
Can you hear me is she conscious?
Does it make you feel beautiful?
Bloodshed under the streetlight.

And does it make you sick?
Oh God we got a bleeder here
Does it make you beautiful?
Heartbreak under the streetlight.

She's lost again.
Adrenaline strains corrupted arteries
Virtue is lost

Beyond this sleek veneer
Beneath the neon existence
Her face is grey
And everything she longs for is pulling away

Follow the siren's song
To face this empty cycle.
Searching the darkest night.
Searching the silence.

Follow the siren's song.
To face this empty cycle.
Searching the darkest night.
Searching the silence.

Dead by first light.
They can't wipe the blood from her eyes.
Dead by first light.
They can't wipe the blood from her eyes.

Dead by
Dead by first light.
Dead by
Dead by first light

    It's about a drug addicted prostitute who is overdosing in the start of the song and her heart is failing, the Siren's Song reference is based on the folklore about Siren's calling pirates to their death, and is obviously a play on both the fact that she is a prostitute, and the fact that death is calling her.
    In the end of the song Dead By First Light is referring to the fact that she dies before the sun rises.
