This song is by VNV Nation and appears on the album Transnational (2013).

The lighting is set, are we ready to play out the scene?
Discarding direction, instinctively playing the leads
Cast in dangerous roles, cameos of us in our lives
Try to outshine the spotlights, lines we've improvised

Precious lies, words that we say to ease our minds
Hide our face behind a mask contrived
To lose ourselves a thousand times inside
This is where we've drawn the line
There's nothing else to give but what you see
Only sacrifice in blood and tears

Silver flickering lights, impressions unfold on the screen
Silhouetted in half-truths, bathe in the glow of a silver dream
Living life off the stage, tragedy to victory
Shadows of past lives in the final scenes

Precious lies, words that we say to ease our minds
Hide our face behind a mask contrived
To lose ourselves a thousand times inside
This is where we've drawn the line
There's nothing else to give but what you see
Only sacrifice in blood and tears

Precious lies, words that we say to ease our minds
Hide our face behind a mask contrived
To lose ourselves a thousand times inside
This is where we've drawn the line
There's nothing else to give but what you see
Only sacrifice and tears

Precious lies, words that we say to ease our minds
Hide our face behind a mask contrived
To lose ourselves a thousand times inside
This is where we've drawn the line
There's nothing else to give but what you see
Only sacrifice in blood and tears
