  • Only when the fates, Commiserate
    Do we get a little taste as unique
    The Libertine – Know what I mean?
    Hiroshima on a Sunday
    You had a gift, you were a gift
    But there's always a goddamn catch
    Blessing and a curse , You made it work
    The Universe seems so much smaller

    Legend, Bastards, Best friend, why?
    Why do the limits have to realign?
    Hero, Martyr, Mystery, God
    He was the best of us

    The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
    The world will never know another man as amazing as you

    Never be the same, I want the blame
    To be assigned to the guiltiest one
    It can't be done, because the son
    Was the victim they arrested
    I'm so fucking pissed at all of this
    You gotta know that you are sorely missed
    Miracles are real, They help you he
    They make you feel like things will get better

    Father, brother, scapegoat, why?
    Why did we only get this time?
    Fighter, icon, Skeptic, God
    Stop taking the best of us

    I won't let you disappear
    I will keep your soul alive if I can't have you here
    History may have its share
    Of lunatics and stars
    But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
    The world will never know another man as amazing as you
    The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
    The world will never know another man as amazing as you

    Skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic

    Where am I supposed to begin?
    I'm killing for the karma again
    Feed the meter in the machine
    Believing it's the way to be seen

    Gone, are we alone?
    Gone, are we alone?
    Gone, are we alone?
    Gone, we're not alone

    I can't let you disappear
    I will keep your soul alive if I can't have you heal
    We were meant to be Kings
    Rule the masses, run the risk
    And keep our systems clean
    History may have its share
    Of lunatics and stars
    But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
    The world will never know another man as amazing as you
    The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
    The world will never know another man as amazing as you

    The world will never see (will never see)
    Another crazy motherfucker like you (like you)
    Like you (like you)
    Like you Writer/s: COREY TAYLOR, JAMES ROOT
