Welcome to the show, the great finale's finally here
I thank you for coming into my theater of fear
Welcome to the show, you're all witnesses, you see
A privileged invitation to the last rites of me
Remember me? You can't save me
Mama, you never needed me
No crimson king, look in my eyes, you'll see
Mama, I'm lonely, it's only me, it's only me
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
The crimson idol of a million
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
The crimson idol of a million eyes, of a million
I am the prisoner of the paradise I dreamed
The idol of a million, lonely faces look at me
Behind the mask of sorrow, four doors of doom behind my eyes
I've got their footprints all across my crimson mind
Long live, long live
Long live the king of mercy
Long live, long live
There is no love to shelter me
Only love, love set me free
No love to shelter me, only love, love set me free
I was the warrior with an anthem in my soul
The idol of eight thousand, lonely days of rage ago
And remember me when it comes your time to choose
Be careful what you wish for, it might come true
Long live, long live
Long live the king of mercy
Long live, long live
There is no love to shelter me
Only love, love set me free
No love to shelter me, only love, love set me free
Red, crimson red, am I the invisible boy?
The straps on my back
Red, crimson red, no, I was never to be
Only one crimson son, no, it never was me
Living in the limelight, little did I know
I was dying in the shadows and the mirror was my soul
It was all I ever wanted, everything I dreamed
But the dream became my nightmare, no one could hear me scream
With these six-strings, I make a noose
To take my life, it's time to choose
The headlines read of my demise, yeah, suicide, of my suicide
Oh, sweet silence, where is the sting?
I am no idol, no crimson king
I'm the impostor, the world has seen
My father was the idol, it was never me
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
The crimson idol of a million
I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, no, I don't wanna be
The crimson idol of a million eyes
No love, to shelter me
Only love, love set me free
No love, to shelter me, only love, love set me free
