Alesana Welcome to the Vanity Faire Lyrics

sponsored links
I search high and low but I can’t find you
Still your vexing laugh entices me
Close enough to touch but then you run away
I’m about to quit and then you say, "lose yourself in the vanity faire!"
Insanity is whispering to me, whoa!

What I believe is just not making sense of what I see
Show me your reflection, a sly disguise, is it the girl you want to be?
A porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby?

Drape yourself in fragile fantasy
I see your reflection, a sly disguise, and it’s not the girl your want to be?
A fraudulent smile
What you see is what you’ve asked for,but it’s never what you are
A cold-hearted tale
Lost in a maze of beautiful deception
And just like before I’m at the mercy of a phantom
When will it end? How will it end? And will you be in arms?
I just can’t take anymore of this pointless search for nothing
Insanity is whispering to me whoa!

What I believe is just not making sense of what I see
Show me your reflection, a sly disguise, is it the girl you want to be?
A fraudulent smile
What you see is what you’ve asked for,but it’s never what you are
Hey hey hey!

Silence, oh cruel harlot!
Silence! Your filthy tongue will be stilled!
Laughter echoing, I’m unraveling tonight
Silence! I’ve had enough!
Silence! No longer will you stop me!
Your vanity so patiently will steal your soul
You’re hideous

Mirror, mirror on the wall, a liar to us all, you’ll be the one to fall
The eye of the beholder knows the truth
Show me your reflection, a sly disguise,Is it the girl you want to be?
A porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby!

Drape yourself in fragile fantasy
I see you reflection, a sly disguise,
And it’s not the girl you want to be?
A fraudulent smile

What you see is what you’ve asked for,
But it’s never what you are
What you see is what you’ve asked for,
What you see is what you get
A cold-hearted tale

Attack the mirrors, shatter the prison
One by one reflections fall, come on come on come on come on!
Until I destroy them all, come on come on come on come on!
