Never See the Day

length: 3:07

There's nothing that you can take from me
That you don't have to a certain degree
God help me feel something cause I feel nothing
What do you want from me? I look around but i can't see
Gave you my life gave you my soul I've lost control
Not in a million years could I shed so many tears
Gave you my life gave you my soul I've lost control
What do you want from me? There's nothing left I'm on empty
Gave you my life gave you my soul I've lost control
What can I even say when every word seems so cliche'?
Gave you my life gave you my soul I've lost control
There's nothing you can take from me
There's nothing I can do for you
There's no place that I'd rather be
There's nothing that could hide the truth
No matter how you try to get inside I'm through with all your lies
The skies open wide
This is a new day I'm coming around
All of the kings are losing their crowns
I always knew that you'd let me down
But I'm wrapped around your finger- I'm wrapped around you
This is a new day I'm coming around
All of the kings are losing their crowns
I always knew that you'd let me down
But I'm wrapped around your finger- I'm wrapped around you
Your just where I want you
Never see the day
There's nothing that you can take from me
There's nothing cause I feel nothing- Nothing
I feel nothing- What do you want from me?

Promise Me

length: 3:23
This is the last day the last day that I sway
No longer will you dictate what I do or say
I've taken a leave of absence I've taken a leave of the senses
& There's nothing in the world that could change this- I can't change this
No regrets
I'm calling on you angels of truth
Tell me that you'll never fall through
Promise me Promise me
Don't crumble like paper mache
Tell me that you'll always fine your way
Promise me Promise me
This is the last day the last day that I sway
No longer will they dictate what I do or say
Not another dying day a part of me that's wasted away
& There's nothing in the world that could change this- you can't change this
No regrets
I'm calling on you angels of truth
Tell me that you'll never fall through
Promise me Promise me
Don't crumble like paper mache
Tell me that you'll always fine your way
Promise me Promise me
Standing on the sidelines where I've been left behind
Right here on the sidelines waiting for the right time
Life goes by
I'm calling on you angels of truth
Tell me that you'll never fall through
Promise me Promise me
Don't crumble like paper mache
Tell me that you'll always fine your way
Promise me Promise me

Taste of Ashes

length: 4:13
Let them pull the wool over your eyes - no hope for the fallen
Misconceptions of a false paradise - these words are unspoken
The blind leading the blind but I decline - we walk the straight line
The one who holds the truth be divined - death is forever
The writings on the wall now the mighty fall
Divided we cannot stand bury your head into the stand
Killing the fat of the land an albatross across your neck- thorn in your side
Don't be afraid of the dark you're still held up by the stars
The light will carry us over
The dice have been cast & your position must be steadfast- we are the chosen
Let no man pull us under never deter- there is no contrast
You can't always crucify what you don't understand- beware of the vampire
& this time you'll see who has the upper hand- the world is a wasteland
Don't be afraid of the dark you're still held up by the stars
The light will carry us over
When all this time has gone by you'll stop & ask yourself why
The light will carry you over
Open up your eyes / read between the lines
However long the night the dawn will break
However long my eyes are closed I'm wide awake
Stand, stand, stand up & fight
It won't be long before this candle burns again
Don't be afraid of the dark you're still held up by the stars
The light will carry us over
When all this time has gone by you'll stop & ask yourself why
The light will carry you over
However long the night the dawn will break
However long my eyes are closed I'm wide awake
Stand, stand, stand up & fight

Eucharist

length: 3:51
I heard a voice just yesterday that told me I'm slipping away
I never felt like this before the sky's not blue anymore
But the wind still blows & the story goes

Lend me your wings fallen angel I'd like to fly away from here
I'm coming home
On & on we ride the storm with our blinders on & our faith no more
On & on we dream but it feels so real I can barely breathe

My life has changed Nothings the same don't even remember the game
I never felt like this before the skies are washed ashore
But the wind still blows & the story goes

Lend me your wings fallen angel I'd like to fly away from here
I'm coming home
On & on we ride the storm with our blinders on & our faith no more
On & on we dream but it feels so real I can barely breathe
I'll find my way like the sun finds the day
& the wind still blows I'm- coming home
Lend me your wings fallen angel I'd like to fly away from here
I'm coming home
On & on we ride the storm with our blinders on & our faith no more
On & on we dream but it feels so real I can barely breathe
Tonite I'm not alone the light is all around me
Change is in the air- I'm coming home

Black Veil

length: 3:14
Show yourself show me your face show me who you really are
Don't tell me the reason why you hide yourself from me is because
you think that we are similar
With blood on your hands you are unclean
Preying on those who are depraved
But yourself you know you cannot be saved- you cannot be saved
So many unshed tears to undergo a pain so severe
You try to take me by surprise I see right through your eyes
Wicked malicious are blameless & faultless
Forgive you? How can i? I can't even forgive myself
What you, you take, you take from me
I know who you are I see right through you the real you
Please give me something to pull myself through this
Don't you think that its been so long overdue
Say its for the last time & never again
Lie & tell me I'm blind never again
Why would you do this? Never again
For the last time- forgive you how can I

Adult Cinema

length: 4:06
Now showing for your viewing pleasure
To be insecure but how to endure
Why would you wanna be anything like me
Is this how we choose to live our lives
Feeding off others pain just to survive
Here's your ticket & a front row seat to the Saturday matinee
All the names may have changed but the story's still the same
Don't get up it gets even better
These delusions of grandeur
Why would you wanna be anything so deceived
Is this how we choose to live our lives
Feeding off others pain just to survive
Here's your ticket & a front row seat to the Saturday matinee
All the names may have changed but the story's still the same
As the children laugh & play out loud no ones there at home to work it out
All the names may have changed but the story's still the same
Anything you want of me but it just gets harder
You take me break me hold me choke me mold & control me
The same words repeating myself
The same energy depleting itself
One day this will all be over & no one will be left to recover
& you will find that I am human
So use to being empty with no one to comfort me
I'll let you see in at my own expense
After all enjoying the pain wouldn't make much sense
Here's your ticket & a front row seat to the Saturday matinee
All the names may have changed but the story's still the same
Look away this is hurting me you'll end up deserting me
Look away I can't save you I'll only be there to deprave you
Look away I can't save you look away

What You Do to Me

length: 3:48
Please heal me feel me kill me its not easy
Everything I had is all I had to give
& what I have is not enough for me to live
& how long till your gone is this what life is something's gone wrong
These days I cannot cope at all I need some kind of miracle
To shake me from this confusion its what you do to me
My heart lies bleeding in your hands time stops & turns around again
It doesn't matter what you say its what you do to me
You hurt me desert me divert me its not easy
Is there anything that could change my point of view
Wish you only knew how much I bled for you
So hang on
won't be long is this what life is something's gone wrong
These days I cannot cope at all I need some kind of miracle
To shake me from this confusion its what you do to me
My heart lies bleeding in your hands time stops & turns around again
It doesn't matter what you say its what you do to me
Its what you do to me
Pick up the pieces all around
Always wondered why we fight never even made a sound
Never thought I'd see the light
I'm not falling I rather stand alone
These days I cannot cope at all I need some kind of miracle
To shake me from this confusion its what you do to me
My heart lies bleeding in your hands time stops & turns around again
It doesn't matter what you say its what you do to me

Seneca Tragedy

length: 3:38
Temperature is rising no disguising these cries tonight
Spin the wheel this is real doesn't matter if your right
Lost in the shadows outside this room take my last breath
I would die for you
Wake me from this dream where everything is so unclean
Take it all away
The world is crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
I hold on tight
The world keeps crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Lets make this right tonight
The picture is fading tired of waiting my hearts on ice
Say a prayer you can swear in the end we'll burn the sky
Chemical silence, a violent blue just hold my hand
I would die for you
Wake me from this dream where everything is so unclean
Take it all away
The world is crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
I hold on tight
The world keeps crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Lets make this right tonight
I'll wait until my heart starts beating again so I can make sense of it all
Don't know where I'm going but I know where I've been try to make sense of it all
The world is crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Just hold on tight
The world keeps crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Lets make this right tonight
The world is crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Just hold on tight
The world keeps crashing down on me with every second that I breathe
Lets make this right tonight

The Word Made Flesh

length: 4:51
Intensify the pain as I speak these words
So personal to me do I make things ten times worse?
Throwing all sense of caution to the wind
The next tragedy will begin where this one ends
With everything thats happening I allow
If I held this all inside I'd be dead by now
Reality dawns & ends the world of make believe
Suffering silently is done I know my day will come
I die every time I say these words that kill something in you
The word made flesh the word is flesh
With everything thats happening I allow
I let this out & it all affects you somehow
Reality dawns & ends the world of make believe
I've only said what I felt to play the hand that I was dealt
So I'm unsteady but my cards are right here on the table
Suffering silently is done I know my day will come
Breaking my bones this friction its burning like a sick addiction
I refuse to place the blame but who ever you are go back from
where you came

Yesterday's Gone

length: 4:38
I'd take the next train going anywhere if I knew you where there
I'd swim across the ocean & sail the seven seas just to have you here with me
All I ever asked for & all I ever wanted now has flashed before my eyes
So many broken promises when you run out of time
The morning that you left I felt a pain no one could heal- I wish it wasn't real
& I can still remember all the laughter that we shared- life is so unfair
You lifted me up & fueled my dreams now yesterday's gone
When I breathe I whisper your name in memory cause yesterday's gone
& I know I can move on from that cold December rain straight from my heart
I wish you could see how I've changed
How can I get through another show with out your face in the crowd?
Still feel that chill in the air when the lights go down
Nothing can be said to make this all go away- just take it day by day
Every time I fall behind I think about your smile- & I go another mile
You lifted me up & fueled my dreams now yesterday's gone
When I breathe I whisper your name in memory cause yesterday's gone
& I know I can move on from that cold December rain straight from my heart
I wish you could see how I've changed
The world still turns
What does it mean?
I silence the scream, It feels like I'm falling down
What does it mean?
What does it mean?
You lifted me up & fueled my dreams now yesterday's gone
When I breathe I whisper your name in memory cause yesterday's gone
You opened my eyes & set me free but yesterday's gone
Now the wind whispers your name in memory cause yesterday's gone
& I know I can move on from that cold December rain straight from my heart I wish you could see how I've changed
