lyrics

No need to burn your icons
They will self-ignite
On starless nights
When heroes go down in flames

No need to bleed your idols
As a sacrifice
Once past the prize
Seems no achievement remains unpunished

Someone’s aura disintegrates
In the public eye
He’ll pay the price
For all the glory and fame

Enough rise-and-fall tales
Until the next lame story about one’s fall and rise

Her collapsing image
Like self-sabotage
Gone under the knife
Of some collective guilt trip

His defensive stance
Won’t make up for the lies
Til his demise
As one more ill-fated king

Enough rise-and-fall tales
Until the next lame story about one’s fall and rise
