"Cleopatra" is the ninth track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End and the second that was officially released prior to the album's release.

Overview

The song was written a few years before the album recording sessions began in January 2014 and it was not strongly considered for inclusion until spring of that year. In December 2017, an early version of the song was leaked, along with the rest of Everything Will Be Alright In The End.

Lyrics

We grow old, our hearts are dim
But our minds are free to fly where they will
Your beauty has faded, you're a broken shell
It's only the weak that fall for your spell

You can't control me no more, Cleopatra

It's time to move to the next life
You'll be reborn as a beautiful child
You'll turn the heads of a million men
Lady Pharaoh, the jewel of the Nile

All the wine we tasted
All the love we made
All the strumming lyres
Will decorate your grave
All the ecstasy is gone, gone, gone away

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40
You're older, you're colder
