Nightwish

Nightwish - Slaying The Dreamer

I'm a priest for the poorest sacrifice

I'm but a raft in a sea of sorrow and greed

You bathed in my wine

Drank from my cup, mocked my rhyme

Your slit tongues licked my aching wounds

Put a stake! Through my heart

And drag me into sunlight

So awake! For your greed

As you're slaying the dreamer

Swansong for the Witch of Night

God it hurts, give a name to the pain

Our primrose path to hell is growing weed

Put a stake! Through my heart

And drag me into sunlight

So awake! For your greed

As you're slaying the dreamer

Blame me, it's me

Coward, a good-for-nothing scapegoat

Dumb kid, living a dream

Romantic only on paper

Tell me why! You took all that was mine!

Stay as you lay - don't lead me astray! [x2]

Wake up! Mow the weed!

You'd be nothing without me!

Take my life if you have heart, heart to die!

You bastards tainted my tool

Raped my words, played me a fool

Gather your precious glitter and leave me be!

The Great Ones are all dead

And I'm tired, too

I, truly, hate, you, all!
