I chose "time's" main character as my scapegoat
Ease of understanding is the value of what's being sold
The flow of time quietly
Tightens around you, with silk floss

Hypocrisy beckons with a smile
Playing the fool is a planned behavior
Being manipulated
Don't you care about that? I don't want to know

Everyone closes their eyes
And can't see their own shadow
If you can see the end of your greed
Then it's already too late, they've decided it's a miscast

Too late, too late
Lick it up, your wound
Lick your wounds over and over again
Too late, too late
Lick it up yourself
It's too late

Show must go on
Dancing on the mirror
We have no leading actor
Game is over
Game is over
Pretending to be a hero

Miscast, you are fired

Ideals are laughed at
In the graves of reality, they've closed their eyes
Is it in a clowns nature to start talking
Without knowing that he's pantomiming?

Unidentifiable, unstimulatable
Rest is a brainwashing melody
Laughing at a comedy actor who forgot his lines
He's fallen down to a miscast

Too late, too late
Lick it up, your wound
Lick your wounds over and over again
Too late, too late
Lick it up yourself
It's too late

Show must go on
Dancing on the mirror
We have no leading actor
Game is over
Game is over
Since you don't have a role, just die

Too late, too late
Lick it up, your wound
Lick your wounds over and over again
Too late, too late
Lick it up yourself
It's too late

Show must go on
Dancing on the mirror
We have no leading actor

Game is over
Game is over
I laugh at you rotting away
(Ha ha ha...)

(Die in Vain)

Miscast, you're failed actor
Miscast, you're failed actor
