Killing the Thing That You Love (Styx)

Brick by brick you built a mansion Piece by piece it seems You're tearing it down Once you walked so tall and handsome Now nobody even wants you around Now you're just some kind of Leftover clown Now you're like Quasi Modo crying As you look in the mirror At what you've become Killing the thing that you love Like Lennon's assassin Lennon's assassin Reaching for Venus De Milo But she's never gonna hold you tight You plant plutonium silos Then you blister from the sun that's too bright Like a vampire stepping into the light Just a victim of your own greed as you Look in the mirror At what you've become Killing the world that you love Like Lennon's assassin Lennon's assassin The genius of a generation Blown away just like a leaf on the wind And now you're looking for salvation But you can't forget the places you've been And you can't erase a lifetime of sin And you can't escape the answers as you Look in the mirror At what you've become Dredging the river for what you have done Killing the thing that you love Like Lennon's assassin Lennon's assassin
