Hungry Lights
Second Best
"You're going to die today, pit rat"

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve had enough secrets
I been open-handed, and I got nothing to lose
But what’s left to gain?
-Is it worth all that shame?
My dreams became intangible
-Not tethered to reality
Brushing the mirror that had taken my place before now
It was glinting so clear, every star I saw was full
How churlish of me not to ask permission
Been preoccupied with wishing
Someone would take existence from me

You’d couldn’t let me walk away
You watched from a distance
For you didn’t trust that I could change
Shall I show you again?

More times than I realized
I was left unfinished—diminished
I still didn’t get it yet
And I gave my everything
But it seems even you didn’t have my back
I was left in the corner, pushing harder—a martyr!
-The promised fracture
No, I couldn’t step forward
I done lost all of my nerve
Before my innocence splintered
And then blew away
I was dreaming better days
But no, that’s something I cannot relate to
No pain—couldn’t feel anyway
My turn to escape was a rat in a small, dark maze
With an exit braced
This time... there was nowhere for me to go

You’d couldn’t let me walk away
You watched from a distance
For you didn’t trust that I could change
Shall I show you again?
Well, here I go...
The catastrophe’s set on the front of the stage
Where will you sit?
Now, I planned the way this would shoot
Flirt with a lie, man—that’s what I do
If I don’t see it, then I won’t fear it
And if I owned it, I could just tear it down
Instead of staring me down
Why don’t you help me by clearing this out?
If I can’t see, then I won’t fear it

I never thought she would be here with me
It was nice to finally hear a friendly voice just like my own
I shouldn’t be ashamed…
Her loss is just the price of power
And if my gods fall one by one
Maybe I won’t remember the truth
I want to forget
I want to forget
I want to forget
I want to forget

It’s ending—pretending that we are not the same
Don’t try to justify—there is no better lie
And we're all frightened of fighting—of dying

You’d couldn’t let me walk away
You watched from a distance
For you didn’t trust that I could change
Shall I show you again?
Well, here I go...
The catastrophe’s set on the front of the stage
Where will you sit?

Unbelievable!
He's done it ladies and gentelmen!
By some stroke of luck, he's beaten the second god!
Oh, this young champion has proven his worth not only to us
But to himself!
Yes, yes
I think we have a true hero on our hands, my friends
A true hero
Oh, I've been waiting for this moment for a long time now
Yes, finally
Umfrant has a challenger
