  • Finally the hills are without eyes
    They are tired of painting a dead man`s face red
    With their own blood

    They used to love having so much to lose
    Blink your eyes just once and see everything in ruins

    Did you ever hear what I told you
    Did you ever read what I wrote you
    Did you ever listen to what we played
    Did you ever let in what the world said
    Did we get this far just to feel your hate
    Did we play to become only pawns in the game
    How blind can you be, don`t you see
    You chose the long road but we`ll be waiting

    Bye bye beautiful


    Jacob`s ghost for the girl in white
    Blindfold for the blind
    Dead siblings walking the dying earth
    Noose around a choking heart
    Eternity torn apart
    Slow toll now the funeral bells

    I need to die to feel alive?



    Did you ever hear what I told you
    Did you ever read what I wrote you
    Did you ever listen to what we played
    Did you ever let in what the world said
    Did we get this far just to feel your hate
    Did we play to become only pawns in the game
    How blind can you be, don`t you see
    You chose the long road but we`ll be waiting

    Bye bye beautiful

    It`s not the tree that forsakes the flower
    But the flower that forsakes the tree
    Someday I`ll learn to love these scars
    Still fresh from the red-hot blade of your words

    How blind can you be, don`t you see
    That the gambler lost all he does not have

    Did you ever hear what I told you
    Did you ever read what I wrote you
    Did you ever listen to what we played
    Did you ever let in what the world said
    Did we get this far just to feel your hate
    Did we play to become only pawns in the game
    How blind can you be, don`t you see
    You chose the long road but we`ll be waiting

    Bye bye beautiful
