The Vanity Syndrome Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Vanity's Overture (0:48)
2. Delusive Egomania (3:46)
Welcome to my neverending nightmare,
This is chapter four of the heartache saga,
It was not supposed to go this way,
But somehow we've been led astray
We've been led astray

Cannot someone tear this pumping gob of flesh from me?
Is there a higher power with the ability to set me free?

She is so close to killing everything I am,
I cannot bear to let myself be devastated by her,
I must stop my descent into this bottomless pit
A life devoid of love is a life without pain
No love means no pain

This was supposed to work so well,
Now all my days are living hell,
It's all her fault I cannot be blamed

Oh precious do you know?
The last time we smiled was a long long time ago
This ship has sailed
Setting course for an unchained self let go

Go deadbeat! Break out! Break away
I tried it all and fell flat on my face
Where is the sweet relief that I'm craving for?
It's the beauty of indifference I adore

I'm so sick of being caught somewhere in between
So could someone turn me into an unloving machine

Oh precious do you know?
The last time we smiled was a long long time ago
This ship has sailed
Setting course for an unchained self
3. Cardiac Catharsis (4:44)
What is this force that I called upon?
A glowing crimson entity,
Of mephistophelian quality

Is this my gateway to finally live at ease
And let my pathetic feelings forever rest in peace

Quiet young lovelorn, I might have the cure
The answer you're craving for sure
Gently I'll put your sore heart in standby
And claim your soul when you die

Is this my only solution
A covenant with forces of evil
Am I not obliged to endure the pain?

But I revisited this path again and again
And it entails nothing but grief in the end
So no longer do I deserve the suffer
Well dear friend, what can you offer?

Quiet young lovelorn, I might have the cure
The answer you're craving for sure
Gently I'll put your sore heart in standby
And claim your soul when you die

I'm infested by affection
By affection for a non-deserver
I will learn the art of apathy
And employ it on her

Tell me young lovelorn, how do you decide?
So obvious no use to hide
Gently I'll put your sore heart in standby
And claim your soul when you die
4. Praise the Loss (7:05)
Strophe I: 

My body now feels different 
Has this single wish come true? 
Is the emptiness a dead end? 
Or just a new found point of view? 

I was a slave to the bloody apparatus 
That humans call a proof of life 
But I don't need this fucking offal 
No more failure to thrive 


Prechorus: 

I thought I'd die for love 
Now love is dead to me 
(For too long I've been)


Chorus: 

Nailed to the cross 
Of my now defunct existence 
I praise the loss 
Of the ability to cherish or to care 


Strophe II: 

From now on I am empty 
And I've never felt this fulfilled 
Every weak spot that I ever had 
Now finally has been killed 

From now on I am empty 
And this is what makes me complete 
The hollowness inside my heart 
Is everything I need 


Bridge: 

At this point there's nothing that I can't achieve 
For the burden of life which is love is no more 
One thing I know 
Life's a whore 
Pay the price and receive what you crave 

Pay! Pay the price! 
Receive! Whatever you crave! 


Leads: Schafberger/Kötterl/Haimerl


Chorus: 

For too long I have been nailed to the cross 
Of my now defunct existence 
I praise the loss 
Of the ability to cherish or to care




Spoken Word I: 

Whoever says you need closeness or affection to survive should think again
I rid myself from this desire and therefore I am invincible


Choir I: 

Void life impending, it's the high road to tuin



Spoken Word II: 

Love always leads to pain 
There are no exceptions
I will forever be the master of my own destiny
And there is nothing and noone with the power to stand in my way
Not even you my dear....

Choir II: 

Vain time unending, it is your road to ruin
Dead life impending, this is your road to ruin
5. Dead Inside - the Severance Cantata Pt. I (4:30)
6. Our Union's Eulogy - the Severance Cantata Pt. II (4:47)
7. Dissolutio Vanitatis (1:04)
8. Enslaved by Liberty (5:30)
I remember a time,
When all I ever wished for was this life
devoid of love equals devoid of pain
Or so I thought
I hear madness' chime
The bells in my head play this song of mistakes and regret
Devoid of love equals a life in vain
Is what I'm taught

Now I no longer breath,
I just don't forbid the air to pass my lungs,
I no longer live,
I merely allow my body not to collapse
I travelled a deadly distance,
To finally see the writings on the wall,
I need your assistance,
Speak to me demon! Answer this desperate call

I thought I'm dead to love,
But love got the best of me

Enslaved by liberty
I have failed to thrive
year after year I've amassed this pack of lies
I told myself to stay, stay alive

Devil on your shoulder? That's not who I am
I offer the following deal as a friend
If all of the love you want to return
Her life you must take, for in hell she will burn
Recall all the anger, the pain that she caused
Yes she is the reason why everything's lost
So demon indeed is not my name I pled
An angel, a saviour you'd call me instead!

Yes all of the love I want to return
Her life I shall take and in hell she will burn
Guide me to where she resides
So I can end this once and for all

It's your life's
Evenfall
Tomorrow's dawn
Will greet a world without you

Enslaved by liberty
I have failed to thrive
year after year I've amassed this pack of lies
I told myself to stay, stay alive
9. Beyond the Breaking Point (4:58)
10. Rightful Salvation (9:38)
11. Vanity's Crown (5:30)
