Fallen version (Mystary EP (2003), Fallen (2003))


Perfect by nature
Icons of self-indulgence
Just what we all need
More lies about a world that
Never was and never will be
Have you no shame? Don't you see me?
You know you've got everybody fooled

Look, here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh, how we love you
No flaws when you're pretending

But now I know she
Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

Without the mask where will you hide?
Can't find yourself lost in your lie

I know the truth now
I know who you are
And I don't love you anymore

It never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled

Never was and never will be
You're not real and you can't save me
And somehow now you're everybody's fool



Demo version (unreleased)


Perfect by nature
Icons of self-indulgence
Just what we all need
More lies about a world that
Never was and never will be
Have you no shame? Don't you see me?
You know you've got everybody fooled

Look, here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh, how we love you
Too bad we didn't know she

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
Somehow you've got everybody fooled

(The dynamic of symmetrical social riot
Can be summoned together in broad statements
That what has become blueprint for all
And all have been reduced to the space of one)

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
Somehow you've got everybody fooled

Never was and never will be
You're not real and you can't save me
Somehow now you're everybody's fool
