Beautiful Shine

Nobody is like you
Nobody wants to be like you
Everybody always wants to be
the entire beautiful illusion
 
Everyone makes everything better
Some go into deep waters
Everything takes the course of time
Everything takes the course of time
 
Nobody is like you
Nobody wants to be like you
Everybody always wants to be...
 
the entire beautiful illusion
the beautiful illusion...
 
[Refrain:]
You're history
time, that destroys you
The flesh gnaws at your bones
You're history
I take you into this light
and celebrate with you every day
that you can experience
 
Nobody is like you
Nobody wants to be like you
Everybody always wants to be
themselves
 
To feast on it
Regardless of discomfort
Everyone makes everyone safe
Some are pimps too
 
Everyone puts everyone down
Some keep coming back
Everyone always wants...
 
The entire beautiful illusion
The beautiful illusion...
 
You're history
The time that appeases you
The blood is on your hands, yes
You're history
What you make up
And you still live here after all
Because you strive to be forgotten
 
Because you strive to be forgotten
Because you strive to be forgotten
Because you strive to be forgotten
Because you strive to be forgotten
 
Nobody is like you
Nobody can be like you
(the entire beautiful illusion)
Nobody is like you
Nobody can be like you
(the entire beautiful illusion)
Everybody always wants to be
the entire beautiful illusion
 
[Refrain:]
You're history
time, that destroys you
The flesh gnaws at your bones
You're history
I take you into this light
and celebrate with you every day
that you can experience
 
Thanks!

Sorry, if my translation of this song seems off. German rock is a hard genre to translate into English.
