  • All that I am
    All I could be
    All I decide the many faces of me
    All I became
    The man that I am
    Got nothing to prove
    And got it all to gain

    Words that are spoken
    Promises broken yeah
    Now that I've woken
    All the cheap thrills
    With expensive bills
    And vanity kills
    Vanity kills

    Highs and the lows
    The web that I wove
    I'll push you away
    But keep you closer to me
    You gave me the crown
    The talk of the town
    With nothing to lose
    I'd do it all again

    Words that are spoken
    Promises broken yeah
    Now that I've woken
    All the cheap thrills
    With expensive bills
    And vanity kills
    Vanity kills

    Golden glows skin and bones
    All that remains is the stain on my soul
    Golden glows skin and bones
    All that remains is the stain on my soul

    Words that are spoken
    Promises broken yeah
    Now that I've woken
    All the cheap thrills
    With expensive bills
    And vanity kills
    Vanity kills Writer/s: AMANDA GHOST, DAVE MCCRACKEN, IAN BROWN, IAN DENCH
