You’re alone now
Like you never were before.
All the world still stares at you
But you don’t look back anymore.
You rest your hands in motion
Through the failures of your life
And the world just keeps on adding to
Your sorrows with its fire.

You had to know that you knew
That in death it wasn’t through
And all the ones that loved you
Scorn your name.
Your effigy is burned
By those who themselves have twice earned
And now bury all their deeds
Inside your grave.

They’re going to dress you up in garbs
Black from their souls’ tar
And hang you up to catch
Their bitter dreams
They will never let you leave
When you give them what they need
And they’ll feast upon your anguish
Just wait and see.

Because it’s all your fault
You’re a martyr of mine.
You gotta love that hate,
And the fear is divine.
They’re gonna roll you over
Pin some sins to your tie.
Take a long look down
You’re a victimless crime.

No one grieves when
You’re a martyr of mine.
Let the whole world bleed
Let them drink it like wine.
They’re gonna shake you out
Til your veins run dry.
Take a long look down
You’re a victimless crime.

No one grieves when
You’re a martyr of mine.
No one grieves when
You’re a martyr of mine.
