Violent Delights Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Scarlight (3:58)
Crack in the wall
My peaceful veneer
Shattered and gone
The wound exposed

Never again
Will trust be extended
This is the end
Of my innocence

The scarlight cleanses me
All sins forgiven
But the wound will never heal

Cracks in the wall
Vicious cycle
Of trust and regret
It never ends

All that remains
Are scars in the void
Where pain used to be
I feel nothing

The scarlight cleanses me
All sins forgiven
But the wound will never heal
Won't be forgotten
Voices in the wind
Like words left unsaid
All that remains is in the scarlight
And the scarlight cleanses me



Voices in the wind
Words left unsaid
All that remains
Is in the scarlight


And the scarlight cleanses me
All sins forgiven
But the wound will never heal
Won't be forgotten
Voices in the wind
Like words left unsaid
All that remains is in the scarlight
And the scarlight cleanses me

chorus
2. Violent Delights (4:22)
There's a certain peace I find
In my destruction, as I burn
In your eyes, so near the end
I find my life inside
Your violent delights
Though my soul is wreathed in tragedy
I'll give you all

This one last taste of victory
Painted in pain upon your lips
As you consume me

A lovely dream so deep within
Turns into a nightmare
A chemical reaction
Turns pleasure into pain
Violent delights
Will have their violent ends

There's a quiet kind of sanity
In the conflagration of our souls

Take me, consume me
Touch me again
Ignite my soul
In your triumph shall I die
Enrapture, forever
So shall we burn
Dust turns into dust
In this triumph shall we die

"Like fire and powder
As we kiss consume"
Adrift upon an ocean of
Regrets we cannot feel
Washed upon a shore of sorrow
We will do it all again

There's a kind of madness
In our destruction
Guileless annihilation
Turns emotion into flame
The ashes rain
Our story, drowned in sorrow
for violent delights

Take me
Consume me
Touch me again
Ignite my soul
In your triumph
Shall I die
Enraptured
Forever
So shall we burn
Dust turns into dust
In this triumph
Shall we die

chorus
3. Illusion of Control (4:31)
I break my back
In pursuit of perfection
Nothing less
Seems to satisfy
As time goes by
I begin to question
White knuckled fist
Holding emptiness

Desperation
Inside out
Realization
Wanting something more
Trepidation
Full of doubt
Suffocation
Illusion of control

I trust no one
Not even the closest
My burden
My cross to bear
The sky is black
Like the darkest of secrets
All alone
In a sea of fear

chorus

Desperation
Inside out
Realization
Wanting something more
Trepidation
Full of doubt
Suffocation
Illusion of control



In my weakness
I surrender, I am nothing
This illusion
Is crippling
And it is controlling me

Desperation
Inside out
Realization
Wanting something more
Trepidation
Full of doubt
Suffocation
Illusion of control
4. Submission (3:21)
I come to you upon my knees
resolute in my defeat
A symphony of pain
I give myself into your hands
surrender my future
Alive, but not engaged

Submission
hopeless surrender
all I might have been
Decision
welcome my affliction
own my fate for me

I bind myself to your desire
There is no choice, won’t break away
a siren song of agony
I feel it in my skin again
the death of all my dreams
with trust you have destroyed

Chorus

Everything I might have been
and everything that I once was
desecrated, torn apart
my surrender
took my life and all I loved
clipped my wings and held me here
my submission

Chorus

Submission
hopeless surrender
all I might have been
Decision
welcome my affliction
own my fate for me

Submission
hopeless surrender
all I might have been
Decision
welcome my affliction
own my fate for me
5. You (3:47)
You
you’ll watch us burn
because you think that you know better
you
you’ll watch us fall
because you think that you will never

So low
we rise above
you know
you do not know us now

You hide behind your shadow
you pretend you are not alone
but if our actions define us
you have to see
you are nothing to us

the sentiment that you profess
the concern you think you show
we see it all
and now you know that we know you
your words mean nothing
as your actions show
the experience you think you have
it makes a fool of you

we
we can forgive
‘cause we know just what you are
we
we’ll let you fall...
‘cause we know what you have done

we rise so high
so far above you
and you know
we see you for what you are


chorus

You hide behind your shadow
you pretend you are not alone
but if our actions define us
you have to see
you are nothing to us

You hide behind your shadow
you pretend you are not alone
but if our actions define us
you have to see
you are nothing to us
6. Inside the Silence (4:32)
These are the words
that we might never speak
So much lies between us
But can I trust that you will know
What I mean to say
Inside the silence?

I patterned my life on the
love I saw
Inside your eyes
But now it’s getting dark and I’m afraid
you’ll never see who I’ve become
mirror of your soul

chorus

Now, it’s close to midnight
and the mist is washing over me
I don’t want to be alone
with the words I never got to say
inside my silence

This life will drive us far apart
this life is now a room
I live inside alone
inside my silence

I stand on the shore
and I wave goodbye
What I’d give to take your place
While there’s peace inside your smile I see
I will drown in loneliness
I don’t want to let you go

Now, it’s close to midnight
and the mist is watching over me
Don’t want to be alone
with the words I never got say
inside the silence

These are the words
that we will never speak
So much lies between us
7. No Redemption (4:46)
Sometimes I stare into the sun
It holds no answers
When I have lost what I've become
Where is salvation?

There was a time
I was waiting for you
Whatever became
Of forever?
This is my life
Not a game to win or lose
Is there no redemption?

I hold the dark within my hands
It almost whispers
Inviting me to twisted ways
I am defenseless

There was a time
I was waiting for you
Whatever became
Of forever?

Here at the end of the world
I've done all you asked
Where is my salvation?
Fire consumes me body and soul
I have nothing left
Where is my redemption?

This is the end of the world
There is no salvation
Consumed by unholy fire
There is no redemption

chorus

There was a time
I was waiting for you
Whatever became
Of forever?

This is my life
Not a game to win or lose
There is no redemption
8. Fight (6:09)
Beauty forged from pain
an artwork of misery
a mosaic masterpiece of scars and agony
The lines flow like a river of release
your words, a brush upon my skin
you paint the image that you want me to believe
a beautiful illusion conceals the horror

Fight, fight the beast inside
fight, fight or don’t survive

My trepidation has proved true
the monster now peers through
Awakening, a beast that once was dormant
Reality is skewed, there’s no hope for me
I know that my delusions they will be
shattered by the truth of all that you are
But I’m prepared now for the pain

Tear out the fear
abolish all my weakness
fight through every tear
fight to pierce the darkness

When all hope is lost
and the light is quickly fading
can you suppress the beast inside
or will you die waiting
Fight, fight the beast inside
fight, fight or don’t survive

Through blood and pain
we are victorious
Rise with us and fight

fight
fight the beast inside
fight
fight or don’t survive

Tear out all the fear
abolish all our weakness
fight through every tear
fight and pierce the darkness

Tear out all the fear
abolish all our weakness
fight through every tear
fight and pierce the darkness

When hope can be found
and light grows from a flicker
we won’t suppress the beast inside
we will die on our feet fighting
Fight! We are the beast inside
Fight! Fight or don’t survive
9. Soul Cage (4:55)
There is much in life we sacrifice
Many things we'll do without
If it means that we don't change
The flame within, a fragile thing
Our experience decides
If it becomes ashes or a signal fire

Freedom is a rallying cry
Can't keep us in the dark
Half truth within a lie
See the light, now close the door
We don't want to go outside
Here inside our blackness, safe

Bury us in doubt
Prey on insecurity
Locked behind the webs of hate
And consumed by our anxiety

Isolate, we drown ourselves
In the tears that we have cried
An ocean of complacency
We build cages for our souls
To keep them safe, but it's a lie
A cage is just an excuse for fear

chorus
Bury us in doubt
Prey on insecurity
Locked behind the webs of hate
And consumed by our anxiety

Bridge:
Trapped inside the cage
A prison we create
Let go of your fear
Know yourself and you are free

Whispers

Solo

Chorus
Bury us in doubt
Prey on insecurity
Locked behind the webs of hate
And consumed by our anxiety
10. Shadow (6:36)
I'm afraid
As the sun goes down
On my victory
That I'll be forgotten
In the dark
Of the shadow cast
By my eminence
I go unnoticed

How could anyone possibly know me?
I'm a stranger even to myself

chorus

I fall
I rise
This shadow surrounds me
I live
I die
I fail
The darkness lingers longer than the light

I believe
As the rain falls down
In a better day
A moment of silence
Behind the light
Lies a deeper void
Where I used to breathe
Before I faded

In the end I chose fame over honesty
In the end I chose shadows instead of the light
I fall
I rise
This shadow surrounds me
I live
I die
I fail
The darkness lingers longer than the light

I fall
I rise
This shadow surrounds me
I live
I die
I fail
The darkness lingers longer than the light

How could anyone possibly know me?
I'm a stranger even to myself
In the end I chose fame over honesty
In the end I chose shadows instead of the light

I fall
I rise
This shadow surrounds me
I live
I die
I fail
The darkness lingers longer than the light

I fall
I rise
This shadow surrounds me
I live
I die
I fail
The darkness lingers longer than the light
11. Damned, I Descend (8:24)
Filled with self-loathing
I push you away
You cannot control me today
You cannot take my heart
You cannot claim my soul
I have none to give

Eyes of the angel
And smile of the beast
You took me so easily
I gave in to desire
And fell into despair
Your delirium
Confined within a dream
Embraced my destiny
Even unto death

If this is the turning point
Why have I taken the wandering path?
Does this mean I have no choice?
The fallow field compels me to my knees

Thoughts of resistance
Fade swiftly away
I cannot repel you today
I cannot save my soul
I can’t protect my heart
My oath unfulfilled
Defy your influence?
Deny your certainty?
My mind is undone

Now there is no turning back
I have accepted your black currency
Subverting my own free will
I bury my contempt in hallowed ground

Damned I descend into your hollow hell
A life torn to pieces
Never to rise until I’m your willing slave
Finally broken
Damned I descend into your emptiness
And damned I surrender
Never to rise, only to worship you
Finally broken at your feet (Ah)

Ah Ah
Deep in my broken heart
Ah Ah Ah
Lies the tiniest seed
Ah Ah Ah
Core of my fiery will
Ah Ah Ah
My secret inferno, I long to be free

Solo

Damned I descend into delirium
Euphoric denial
Damned I descend, never to rise again
Eternally shattered

Damned I descend into your hollow hell
A life torn to pieces
Never to rise until I’m your willing slave
Finally broken
Damned I descend into your emptiness
And damned I surrender
Never to rise, only to worship you
Finally broken at your feet

Filled with self-loathing
I push you away
You cannot control me today
You cannot take my heart
You cannot claim my soul
I have none to give
