lyrics

This world that gave us everything
Has made us so vain and proud.
We love the faces reflected in the mirror.
We hate the ones who don‘t.

Vain and proud.
We‘ve grown tired.
Nothing left to care about.
No reason left to fight.

No man‘s law to follow.
No god‘s commands to fear.

Vain and proud.
We‘ve grown tired.
Nobody left to die for.
No reason left to live.

This world that gave us everything
Has made us sick and slow.
We live our rich and happy lives.
Still, like all the lesser ones, we die alone.

Vain and proud.
We‘ve grown tired.
Every transgression committed.
Every virtue sold.

They came to take it all away.
This freedom we never had to earn.
The poor. The underprivileged.
From golden chalices we drank their blood.

Levelling our throne of bones.
They came to take our lives.
Centuries of arrogance.
Today we pay the price.
