Lyrics

Everlasting

When I'm done here all the blood from my life will be staining you
You're half the battle
Button up, it's cold outside
Don't want you to feel the crime
Of a thousand years

This is what the real world is
Take it or leave it but don't ever give
Time to face this life alone
When you walk out you can never go home

Now, with your back turned 'round
I got you right where I want you
Now, with your head turned down
You take one last deep breath in
Let me know that you mean it

Open up your mind, I wanna see you suffocating too
It's only fair my friend
Take my shelter, take my heart
Just take half or take it all, my long lost enemy

Something said's not something done
Look at the stars, you've been dead all along
Now your destiny is clear
Do this again and I'll turn you to tears

Now, with your back turned 'round
I got you right where I want you
Now, with your head turned down
You take one last deep breath in
Let me know that you mean it

Now, with your back turned 'round
I got you right where I want you
Now, with your head turned down
You take one last deep breath in
Now, with your back turned 'round
I got you right where I want you
Now, with your head turned down
You take one last deep breath in
Let me know that you mean it

Time everlasting
Dying, I won't wake tomorrow
	  

Hold Me ('Til We're Both Dead)

You don't know how much it hurts
When you finally fall and it's too much
'Til the end of time you know his touch will never escape you
Living in a fantasy
Oh, reality's mixed in with dreams
Now the dreams are tearing at the seams
It's to be expected
I was all caught up in lies
I was trying to look deep in your eyes
But the things I saw evoked these cries
And now I am saying

What to do when you're lost?
Look at all that you've tossed aside

All I ever wanted 
Hold me 'til we're both dead
Never let me walk away or deny what we both can see
You will never see you're
Everything to me, you're
What I pray for morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
You're everything I see

Now you've left and now you're gone
And I just don't think I can go on
And you still won't tell me what went wrong
I'm overprotective
What if you could have been mine
I can't help but think that you were blind
To the love that I held at your side
I'm not gonna hurt you

I am cold and I'm lost
If you leave me I'll cross the line

All I ever wanted
Hold me 'til we're both dead
Never let me walk away or deny what we both can see
You will never see you're
Everything to me, you're
What I pray for morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
Morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
Morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
(You will never see you're 
Everything to me you're
What I pray for) morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
You're everything I see

All I ever wanted
Hold me 'til we're both dead
Never let me walk away or deny what we both can see
You will never see you're
Everything to me, you're
What I pray for morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
Morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
Morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
(You will never see you're 
Everything to me you're
What I pray for) morning, night, and when I wake and go to sleep
You're everything I see
	  

Paradox Nightmare

(I'm looking down a long hallway
The lights flicker
The floor's wet
I take one step, then another
And I hear voices calling
They say walk, go
So I follow
I reach the end of the hallway
There is a wooden door
I push the door but it won't budge
And slowly all the lights begin to shut)

Falling into a dream
Fantasy abducting my world
Peacefully sleep
I feel you standing, watching still
(My heart is open but my eyes are closed)
Wake up!

The pain of escaping
Pain reaching safety cross my heart
And hope to survive
Reach for the skies
Light with no moon
Day breaks
Trust in myself that you'll haunt me forever
Time's slipping away
Please stop, you're killing me
(My heart is open but my eyes are closed)

Wake up
You're losing your sense of reality
(Am I possibly dreaming?)
Wake up 
A challenge to sleep in serenity
In your paradox nightmare

Wake up
You're losing your sense of reality
	  

Sorrow My Savior

You're the key
Time to take my worries away
Rescue me
And turn back time today
Consequently relieving my stress for once in my life
Gently following destiny I cry one more time
Cage me
Chase me
You're taking your toll

Sorrow my savior
Rescue me
Crying eyes are able to see
Sorrow my savior

I've suffered enough to be shut down again
Where is the love?
Is it all in my head?
You say you're lonely
Loneliness cannot compare to this
Now I'm free
Revenge is all that I have left

Rescue me
Crying eyes

Sorrow my savior...

Sorrow my savior
Rescue me
Crying eyes are able to see
Sorrow my savior

You're the key
	  

The Valley Beneath

Battle cries from the loss of the fallen
Evil lies to mistake he who's chosen
(Why) must this terror be before us
(Die), we can't let this destroy us
Everybody let's lift up our arms

I'm not the one in control
Anymore
The valley beneath me has broken the door to the floor
(Now someone save us, we'll start over if we have to again)
(Please God), give us this one last fight

(These dreams) seem like reality
Unleashing anger inside of me
(Praising) the light from above
And even still it may not be enough
Everybody let's lift up our arms

I'm not the one in control
Anymore
The valley beneath me has broken the door to the floor
(Now someone save us, we'll start over if we have to again)
(Please God), give us this one last fight

I can feel the power warming behind me
(This evil is blinded)
Victory will be ours
I pierced the sword straight through his heart 
It gave us a start to this new life

I'm not the one in control
Anymore
The valley beneath me has broken the door to the floor
(Now someone save us, we'll start over if we have to again)
(Please God), give us this one last fight
	  

Birth of the Empire

I cannot die 'til I'm truly victorious
Open one eye so I know who's to blame
Louder I cry 'cause this feeling's so glorious
I can't deny that my world's not the same
Break the walls and set them all aflame

We are one
I will not come undone
For they weep
Alone will they sleep

The dragon's not sleeping yet
Just one more time and we rise up again
The black crow flies by and it tells me that you have left
Farther beyond what I can comprehend
Never will he lead you to the end

We are one
I will not come undone
For they weep
Alone will they sleep

We are one
I will not come undone
For they weep
Alone will they sleep
	  

In the Eyes of a Corpse

Burned in my memory
Undying, crazed insanity
I've been tortured with love, now it's time to break
Determine my fate, blood upon the hand that gave

See me fly; see me free
Free from your gracious yet lovely irrationality
I am your slave one last time 
And I give you my soul
Now look my corpse in the eye

Saved, yet my scars remain
Unveiling pain and suffering
To the ground I have burned, now my ash will fly free
Finally free

See me fly; see me free
Free from your gracious yet lovely irrationality
I am your slave one last time 
And I give you my soul
Now look my corpse in the eye
	  

The Nature of Healing

Kiss my hand and whisper that you're sorry
Lying at your side I feel you slip away
Why did you have to leave me?
I had the time to pray for you one more time
Nothing in this world is so dear to me, so close
Close your eyes

I, I can't believe it
Defending your life, I won't start grieving
I can't admit that you're gone
Safe in his face is a f***ing disgrace
A voice said he tried but she's gone
Why must we fade with the memories
Of the ones we once loved?

Kiss my hand and whisper that you're sorry
Lying at your side I feel you slip away
So why did you have to leave me?
I had the time to pray for you one more time
Nothing in this world is so dear to me
So close your eyes
As we say our last goodbyes

Kiss my hand and whisper that you're sorry
Lying at your side I feel you slip away
So why did you have to leave me?
I had the time to pray for you one more time
Nothing in this world is so dear to me
So close your eyes
As we say our last goodbyes
	  

Black Heart (Stay Burning)

A world full of people, still I cannot see
What I want, what I want you to be
I wake with the darkness, I wake with the storm
Letting go of a life led astray

And I still don't want to be free
But you've taken all the pieces and you've given them to me
And I wish you'd take me apart
Everything I thought I'd be before, I assure you that the heart's
Gone forever now
Ever sound
I'll still be here
With a sign that I'm one with my pain

Now and again there's so much to explain
I can feel that you've set me on fire
But the worst way to die is a death of the heart
And with time it's a wound that won't heal.

And I've seen now what I could be
I could go alone to heaven or could fall to misery
But I know you'll take me apart
Everything I thought I'd be before, I assure you that the heart's
Gone forever now
Ever sound
I'll still be here
With a sign that I'm one with my pain

Red world
I'm a little bloodstained
White snow
Reveal the mess I made
And black heart: Don't you ever waste away
I know to stop hurting but I wanna stay burning...

But the world won't look fondly on me
So I'll never see a heaven and I'll fall to misery
But I know you'll take me apart
Everything I thought I'd be before, I assure you that the heart's
Gone forever now
Ever sound
I'll still be here...
	  

Breathe to Fade

Look me in the eye
I will break the knife I wield
Nothing's ever right
Not even passion this surreal
I'm enthralled, and after all
I still walk to be disgraced
I want to have my mind erased
Tonight I
Lay, wide awake
Have your way

I just cry because I lie
Useless truthfulness
I pray but it's just to save myself
I'm condemned to live today
I want, I need, I breathe to fade

Now that your eyes lay heavy on mine
Just take me
You're dangerously patient
When you tell me you want me
I fall to you and dangerous elation

I'm okay
Only my mind playing tricks on me
And they're all telling me to
Pray, but there's nothing I believe in
And you're still as you watch me
Lay, wide awake
Have your way

Why I chose to end my life
Why you follow, why you
Stay, when you know
You'll end yourself
I just watch you fade to gray
I want, I need, I breathe to say...

I just cry because i lie
Useless truthfulness
I pray but it's just to save myself
I'm condemned to live today
I want, I need, I breathe to fade 
	  

Fascination

To conquer is to lead a life unchained
They say the blood lay in the foreign vein
This is my earth and I will not let go
Now watch me rise up from below
Please release me 
I'll stop fighting

I promised that I'd be forgiving
I swore I'd never dream awake
But look what I've become
I know I'll never love
My heart is weakness of my own creation

Clouds came and I heard the thunder
But I'll still win you if we're torn asunder
The wind and rain can only make me glow
Now watch me rise up from below
Hear me darling
I'm so sorry
Cross my heart and die

I promised that I'd be forgiving
I swore I'd never dream awake
But look what I've become
I know I'll never love
My heart is weakness of my own creation

I crawled
I shouted through the walls
Oh why can't you recall the times I held the light for you
You took it all
Fascination

Hear me darling 
I'm so sorry
Cross my heart and die
