A tearless stare
Encased by fear
Like a thread my heart is torn
And ripped right from my soul
With no control

Suits in disguise then fades to red
Brings a blackened sky to fall
And make you very cold
While you grow old

Gone without a trace (gone)
It's left me chained and bound
My heart you thrust a dagger
My life and dreams are shattered
And left in tyranny

Rapture or pain
You spill my blood and take my life away
Rapture or pain
All aversions still remain

You've realized
You're not alone
They've took your breath of life
And left your mind to unfold
Lifeless and cold

Your thoughts erased
It's death you taste
Your searing face
It hides the scars of love

Gone without a trace (gone)
It's left me chained and bound
My heart you thrust a dagger
My life and dreams are shattered
And left in tyranny

Rapture or pain
You spill my blood and take my life away
Rapture or pain
All aversions still remain

Rapture or pain
You spill my blood and take my life away
Rapture or pain
All aversions still remain
