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

    The story of a woman overdosing on drugs, "dead by first light" could mean lighting up her drugs for injections/smoking, etc. All the lyrics describe her to be a drug-addict.

    Neon existance- a life coated by drugs
    White lines on her veins would be scars from injections and cutting all in all a suicidal drug adict

    Have u guys ever heard of the the sirens song. Look it up on google. Then re read the lyrics. I think its a comparison to the sirens song. But its just my opinion.

    Women will kill you if you let them, they look beautiful but will tear your heart out and leave you to die

    @metalheadj,
    "And everything she longs for turns to black" - doesnt mean she longs to die, everything she wants turns to black because she passes out possibly dieing.

    "And white lines lace every vein" - laces of white lines are lines of drugs, ecstacy or cocaine.

    "Heartbreak under the streetlight." - Prostitutes chill under street lights attracting business.

    Id say its about an overdosing prostitute
