lyrics

The sun never sets on this empire,
We built our homes on a funeral pyre.
(Brick by brick)
Help me to douse the bonfire of the vanities,
Before it strips you of your love and your family.
(Tear it down)

She's 20 years old and it's a Saturday night,
She's drinking her brain cells under the table.
She cries to herself, "this can't be worth the pain".
She's giving up, she isn't able to forget.

We're waking up with the worst hangover the world has ever seen.
Cold sweats, heavy head, the end of a dead dream.

Bite tongue, draw blood, to stop the trembling.

It's 4 in the morning, and you didn't know the stakes.
The only voice is the TV as I try to shake her awake.
We romanticised death, and now she's blue in the face.
There's nothing of the old you left, just shame and disgrace.
(How did we end up here?)

Help me to douse the bonfire of the vanities,
Before it strips you of your love and your family.
(Tear it up)

The bitter pill wont make you better,
the bitter pill will make you sick.

There's nothing of the old you left but shame and disgrace.
How did we end up here?
