Sempiternal Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Can You Feel My Heart (3:47)
Can you hear the silence?
Can you see the dark?
Can you fix the broken?
Can you feel... can you feel my heart?

Can you help the hopeless?
While, I'm begging on my knees
Can you save my bastard soul?
Will you weep for me?

I'm sorry brothers
So sorry lover
Forgive me father
I love you, mother

Can you hear the silence?
Can you see the dark?
Can you fix the broken?
Can you feel my heart?

Can you feel my heart?
Can you feel my heart?
Can you feel my heart?

I'm scared to get close and I hate being alone
I long for that feeling to not feel at all
The higher I get, the lower I sink
I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim

I'm scared to get close and I hate being alone
I long for that feeling to not feel at all
The higher I get, the lower I sink
I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim

I'm scared to get close and I hate being alone
I long for that feeling to not feel at all
The higher I get, the lower I sink
I can't drown my demons, they know how to swim

Can you feel my heart?

Can you hear the silence?
Can you see the dark?
Can you fix the broken?
Can you feel... can you feel my heart?
2. The House of Wolves (3:25)
Show me a sign, show me a reason to give
A solitary fuck about your god damn beliefs
I'm going blind, but one thing's clear
Death is the only salvation you'll feel

Brick by brick by brick...
Brick by brick by brick...

What you call faith, I call a sorry excuse
Cloak and daggers murder the truth
A bitter taste, there's nothing else
I'll bow for your king when he shows himself

Brick by brick by brick
These walls begin to cave in
The house of wolves you built
Is burning a thousand suns

Show me your face, show me a reason to think
My soul can't be saved if I sell you my sins
I'm going blind, but one thing's clear
Death is the only salvation for me

Brick by brick by brick
These walls begin to cave in
The house of wolves you built
Is burning a thousand suns

(The house of wolves you built)
(The nest of wolves you built)

The house of wolves you built
Will burn just like a thousand suns

So when you die, the only kingdom you'll see—
Is two-foot wide and six feet deep!

Yeah!

And when you die, the only kingdom you'll see—
Is two-foot wide and six feet deep!

And when you die, the only kingdom you'll see—
Is two-foot wide and six feet deep!

Brick by brick by brick...
Brick by brick by brick...

Brick by brick by brick
These walls begin to cave in
The house of wolves you built
Is burning a thousand suns

Brick by brick by brick
These walls begin to cave in
The house of wolves you built
Will burn just like a thousand suns

You said you want me?
Now I'm here, now I'm here, now I'm here!
You said you want me?
Now I'm here, now I'm here, now I'm here!
3. Empire (Let Them Sing) (3:45)
It's the start of the end
Surrender the throne
The blood on my hands covered the holes

We've been surrounded, by vicious cycles
Are we truly alone?
Discover your heart, yours to atone
We've been surrounded
Let 'em sing, let 'em sing!

The deeper you dig, the darker it gets
There's nowhere else for us to go
We live while we learn, and then we forget
We'll never find our way back home
Come on!

They came like moths to a flame
You live like a house in a hurricane

(The wolves are at my door)

It's the start of the end
Surrender the throne
The blood on my hands covered the holes

We've been surrounded, by vicious cycles
The end, and we're truly alone
The scars on your heart are yours to atone
We've been surrounded
Let 'em sing, let 'em sing!

I hear them calling at the gates
(Let us in, let us in)
I hear them calling out my name
(I don't care)

Let them sing, let them sing, let them sing
Let the bastards sing
Let them sing, let them sing
Let the bastards sing
Let them sing, let them sing
Let the bastards sing
Let the God-forsaken bastards sing

They came like moths, to a flame
You live like a house in a hurricane

The wolves are at my door
But I can see the writing on the walls
The wolves are at my door
Waiting for my empire to fall

It's the start of the end
Surrender the throne
The blood on my hands covered the holes

We've been surrounded, by vicious cycles
Sp call it the end, and we're truly alone
The scars on your heart are yours to atone
We've been surrounded
Let 'em sing, let 'em sing!
4. Sleepwalking (3:50)
My secrets are buried now
From my heart and my bones catch a fever
When it cuts you up this deep
It's hard to find a way to breathe

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to see
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking

I'm at the edge of the world
Where do I go from here?
Do I disappear?
Edge of the world
Should I sink or swim?
Or simply disappear?

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to see
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Seeing as time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking

Wake up!
Take my hand and
Give me a reason to start again
Wake up!
Pull me out and
Give me a reason to start again

Time stands still
(Time stands still)
Time stands still
(Time stands still)

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to see
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
5. Go to Hell, for Heaven's Sake (4:02)
For the love of god, will you bite your tongue
Before we make you swallow it
It's moments like this where silence is golden
(And then you speak)

No one wants to hear you
No one wants to see you
So desperate and pathetic
I'm begging you to spare me
The pleasure of your company

(When did the diamonds leave your bones?)

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

(Go to hell for heaven's sake)

No one wants to hear you (Save your breath)
No one wants to see you
So desperate and pathetic
You think that no one sees this
I think it's time you knew the truth

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

When did the diamonds leave your bones
Leave your bones

You're not a shepherd, you're just a sheep
I'll cut my depths of everyone you meet
Your own flesh with no bones
Feed them to the sharks
And throw them to the walls

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

I'm burning down every bridge we make
I'll watch you choke on the hearts you break
I'm leaving out every word you said
Go to hell for heaven's sake

Go to to hell for heaven's sake
Go to to hell for heaven's sake
Go to to hell for heaven's sake
6. Shadow Moses (4:03)
Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere
We live our lives like we're ready to die
We're going nowhere

Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere
We live our lives like we're ready to die
We're going no where

I thought I'd buried you
And covered the tracks
You'll have to take this with your cold dead hands
I thought I'd buried you
Where sin can never die

I thought I cut you loose
Severed the feeling
I stepped through the crack as you clamp to my shirt
I thought I'd buried you
Where sin can never die

FUCK!

Can you tell from the look in our eyes,
We're going nowhere
We live our life like we're ready to die,
We're going nowhere

You can run but you'll never escape,
Over and over again
Will we ever see the end?
We're going nowhere

THIS IS SEMPITERNAL!

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over
Again and again

Rise from the dead you say,
Secrets don't sleep till they're took to the grave,
Signal the sirens,
Rally the troops,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It's the moment of truth

Can you tell from the look in our eyes?
We're going nowhere
We live our lives like we're ready to die,
We're going nowhere

You can run but you'll never escape,
Over and over again
Will we ever see the end?
We're going nowhere
[x2]

THIS IS SEMPITERNAL!

Will we ever see the end?
This is sempiternal
Over and over
Again and again
7. And the Snakes Start to Sing (5:01)
I've lost the plot again. Tell your friends to sharpen their teeth.
There's a few quid to be made.
And my soul's a sorry state, so come on down you empty lovers.

Worms come out of the woodwork, and the snakes start to sing.

Do you feel the chill clawing at the back of your neck?
I start to spill.
Did you really think that you could fix me?
They'll sell their bones for another roll.

Well sharpen your teeth.
Tell yourself that it's just business.

Worms come out of the woodwork.
Leeches crawl from out of the dirt.
Rats climb out of the holes they call home.
I fall apart; and the snakes start to sing.

Don't say I'm better off dead,
'Cause heaven's full and hell won't have me
Won't you make some room in your bed?
Well you could lock me up in your heart,
And throw away the key
Won't you take me out of my head?

I'm just a would've been, could've been, should've been,
Never was and never ever will be
Well sharpen your teeth
Tell yourself that it's just business

Would've been, could've been, should've been,
Never was and never ever will be

Worms come out of the woodwork, and the snakes start to sing

Worms come out of the woodwork.
Leeches crawl from out of the dirt.
Rats climb out of the holes they call home.
I fall apart; and the snakes start to sing.

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock
Are you still getting high?
Did you catch your own reflection
In the knife my mother held?
Or the hell in my father's eyes?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock
Are you still getting by?
Was I your knight in shining armour?
The apple of your eye?
Or just a step to climb?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock
Are you still getting high?
Did you catch your own reflection,
In the knife my mother held?
Or the hell in my father's eyes?

If you can't soar with the eagles,
Then don't fly with the flock
Are you still getting by?
Was I your knight in shining armour?
Or the apple of your eye?
Or just a step, a fucking step to climb!
8. Seen It All Before (4:07)
Every second's soaked in sadness
Every weekend is a war
And I'm drowning in the déja vu
We've seen it all before

I don't wanna do this by myself
I don't wanna live like a broken record
I've heard these lines a thousand times
And I've seen it all before

Are we close enough?
There is something I must confide
I think we've lost our touch
There's no sparkle in those eyes

What an awful mess I've made
There's nothing left to save

Every second's soaked in sadness
Every weekend is a war
And I'm drowning in the déja vu
We've seen it all before

I don't wanna do this by myself
I don't wanna live like a broken record
I've heard these lines a thousand times
And I've seen it all before

(There's nothing in the air tonight...)

Every second's soaked in sadness
Every weekend is a war
And I'm drowning in the déja vu
We've seen it all before

I don't wanna do this by myself
I don't wanna live like a broken record
I've heard these lines a thousand times
And I've seen it all before

I'm sorry, no... it's not enough
We shouldn't feel a love so painfully
It hurts right to the touch
I know it stings, I know this cuts
And I wish I could agree with you
But fuck this love, it's not enough

It's not enough...
It's not enough...
9. Anti-vist (3:13)
Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
I'm sick to death of swallowing, every single thing I'm fed.
Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
You think you're changing anything?
Quick! Change everything!
The world is a shit tip, your children are fucked
The ones you think guard you, are out for your blood
When minds are battered and washed out with style
But what exactly do you think you're gonna do?

United, we'll fail
Divided, we'll fall
We're fucked, but you're makin' it worse
United, we'll fail
Divided, we'll fall
Give up, 'cause you're makin' it so much worse

Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
I'm sick to death of swallowing every single thing I'm fed
Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
You think you're changing anything?
Quick! Change everything!

Oh, give me a break you deluded, ireful, self-serving prick
If you really believe in the words that you preach,
Get off your screens, and onto the streets

There will be no peaceful revolution!
No war without blood!
You can say I'm just a fool, that stands for nothing
Well, to that,
I say you're a cunt!

(Kick it!)

United, we'll fail
Divided, we'll fall
United, we'll fail
We're fucked, but you're makin' it worse!

Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
I'm sick to death of swallowing every single thing I'm fed.
Middle fingers up, if you don't give a fuck!
You think you're changing anything?
Quick! Change everything!
[x2]
10. Crooked Young (3:34)
Believe in no one!

Hallelujah!
Well, I'm saved!
Just a dozen steps and 28 days...
It's a miracle, I'll be born again!
With the Lord as my shepherd...
I will find a way!

FUCK YOUR FAITH!
No one's gonna save you!

FUCK YOUR FAITH!

There's no hope for us
We speak in tongues
Blacker than the sun
No, death can't touch...
The crooked young

There's no hope for us
We speak in tongues
Blacker than the sun
No, death can't touch...
The crooked young

The crooked young!

We don't sleep, we don't eat
We speak in tongues
We can't die, we're dead inside
No, death can't touch...
The crooked young

Believe in no one
Find yourself
The faceless won't save you
The clouds won't hear your fucking prayers

(There's no hope for us)
(We speak in tongues)
(Blacker than the sun)
(No, death can't touch...)
(The crooked young)

Hallelujah!
I'm saved!
It's a miracle... thank you Jesus!
Halleluja!
I'm saved!

FUCK YOUR FAITH!
FUCK YOUR FAITH!
11. Hospital for Souls (6:44)
And then I found out how hard
It is to really change, even hell
Can get comfy once you've settled in.
I just wanted the numb inside me to leave.
No matter how fucked you get,
The sun will return and you come back down!
The funny thing is all I ever wanted i already had..
There's glimpses of heaven in every day!!
In the friends that I have, the music I made,
The love that I feel, I just had to start again..

The days are a death wish
A witch hunt for an exit
I am powerless...

The fragile, the broken
Sit in circles and stay unspoken
We are powerless...

Because we all walk alone on an empty staircase
Idle in the halls and nameless faces
I am powerless...

Everybody wants to go to Heaven
But nobody wants to die
I can fear death no longer
I've died a thousand times

A wasteful universe
And we don't know our soul was
Emptiness inside our heads
But no one dares to dwell...

Throw me to the flames
Watch me burn!
Set my world ablaze
Watch me burn!

How are we on a scale of one to ten?
You can tell me, what do you say?
Do you wanna talk about it?
How does that make you feel?

Have you ever took a blade to your wrists
Have you've been skipping meals
We're gonna try something new today
How does that make you feel?

Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
In this hospital for souls

Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
In this hospital for souls

Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me
In this hospital for souls

Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me burn...
Hold me close, tell me "go"
Watch me burn...
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me burn...
In this hospital for souls

Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me burn...
Hold me close, tell me "go"
Watch me burn...
Hold me close, don't let go
Watch me burn...
In this hospital for souls
