Perception Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Act I (0:50)
2. Chameleon (3:01)
Show me who you are, not who you want to be.
Ever since the start, you've been lying to me.

You push yourself so hard to make a difference,
your selfish intentions are only creating distance.

I'll show you the monster inside of me,
and let you witness the endless suffering.

No remorse will be shown,
when every breath leaves you all alone.
You deserve nothing more,
You are nothing of worth.

I'll show you what you become,
it's nothing you'll want to see.

All this time you've been hiding,
well now the joke is on you.

Well, I can't save you, you're far too gone.
3. A Locust Named Lust (4:53)
Why set sail just to fail.
I know I cannot hold back, I hope I do not take advantage of you.
Why can't this just be true. Why must I lie to you.

Hell no, won't let go.
Hell no, you won't let go.

For yourself I dismay, as I cannot respect
bullshit honour you protect that you claim to have with
your pride; within your soul.
Go on and lie to yourself about your pleasure's hold.

Hell no, I won't go.
Hell no, you don't know.
Hell no, you can't grow.
Hell no, let her go.
You make me fucking sick.
Let her go.

-Abomination?-
To be inside my mind, no, not inside of you,
I recognize I'm just a fucking hormone ridden fool.
-I always try, I'll always try-
I can't appease these rules, for they're what make me "strong"...
And I'll take ridicule and know that I just don't belong.
-I always fight, I'll always fight-
To be a part of you, no, not one with you,
why recognize when my longest want is something new?
-I always pry, I'll always pry-
I can't appeal these roles, for they're where I belong,
and I should never be allowed to bear my grasp upon,
-I always might, with all my might-
Your flesh and warmth, for I think, you are no longer my friend,
and I shall never ever want to hold you again.
-I always lied, I'll always lie-
To be objectified... What is the end?
I am the monster, I myself, and I just cannot defend.

Fend for yourself! I dismay, as I cannot respect
that bullshit honour you protect that you claim to have next
to your pride; within your soul.
Go on and lie to yourself about your pleasures.
4. Act II (2:48)
5. Perception (4:28)
Every night alone on this earth: hollowing eyes,
a lack of a voice heard.
Witness their flaws...

In places and people, like the decay of romance,
and the death of heroes.

Bury the burden of now and then.
Surrender to complacency time and again.
No Gods and no masters,
there will be no faith in faith,
Life won't change the weight of the sand -
suffer within the hourglass.

Every night alone on this earth: hollowing eyes,
a lack of a voice heard.
Witness their flaws...
In place and people, like the decay of romance,
and death of man...

All this about the power of love and hate,
a trial for the tribune- far too late.
I don't think you understand your own words,
this loathing is becoming unbearable.
So blame society for your place, and your self-
consciousness bleeding from your ugly fucking face.
I won't tell you to never give up, because if words
change that much, then you're in the wrong place.

Bury the burden of now and then.
Surrender to complacency time and again
No Gods and no masters,
there will be no faith in faith.
Life won't change the weight of the sand -
suffer within the hourglass.

I sever the vocal chords of every doubt.
Watching weeks turn into years,
neglecting solace, weakness and fear.
6. Everlasting Surface Encounters (4:35)
Everlasting -

No one's here to create you.
No one will try to make you something that you're not.
When you're worth no value,
take off your mask unstitch your pathetic costume.

This epitome of your popularity makes you fucking hopeless.
This creativity of your opportunity, irks me, someone kill you.

I cannot sit still now knowing you're all around.
I will not hold back now, until you're all in... the ground...

No one's here to create you.
No one will try to make you something that you're not.
When you're worth no value,
take off your mask, unstitch your pathetic costume.

This dignity of your open-mindedness is another hole in your head.
The ideology of your curiosity invites them to fuck that, too.

I'm sure you'd let them fuck that, too. So make up your mind;
so you can fit any image that you like,
while you strive for your own life.
Fuck that, too.
So make up your mind - just drop it and expose yourself.
Show me what you're fucking made of.
Fuck that, too. Make up your mind.
Show me what you're fucking made of.
Fuck that, too. Make up your mind.
Show me what you're really made of.
I cannot sit still now knowing you're all around.
I will not hold back now, until you're all in... the ground.
In the ground... Ground.

When disaster strikes and brings you to your knees
it's hear to end this disease.
When laughter invites and sings to all of your please
this encounter is endless in their eyes while you bleed.

Everlasting.
7. Immortalized (3:40)
Glorify our lives, harvest everything inside.
Come to realize you've become immortalized.
Show no fear of yourself or any disguise.
Hidden in your fucking lies you've become hypnotized.

You're so blind...
Open your eyes,
and we'll show you.

The strength inside of me is created by reality.
Shed the skin of the weak and let your new self breathe.
Bring out your soul, ignite your life,
with opened eyes see the inner light.

As one we will fight.
As one we unite.

Lift myself from this being.
This shit will try to beat me...
I think this hope is so damn useless.
Why won't you fucking save me?
I cannot hear your screams.
Your hopes are burying me.
You think you're the only one who deserves
all this fucking saving.

Glorify our lives, harvest everything inside
Come to realize...

The strength inside of me is created by reality.
Shed the skin of the weak and let your new self breathe.
I want to show you- fuck you, kill you.
With open wounds I will see what is inside.
See what is inside...

As one we will fight.
As one we unite.

With my strength I will protect my own blood.
For my soul I will fight 'til my last breath.
8. Those in Black (5:48)
They'll sell me a plan, I see it as the only way.
This well will run dry, as I choke and spit up these lies-
my sins will be forgotten like the warmth of compassion.
The heartless, the calloused as dogs...
We've sunk our teeth in too deep.

Hesitation, growing quicker with every second.
Years of empty promises, drowning in what we've become.
In what I've done...
What have I done?

Clouds rupture above your best intention.

Face the unwilling terms, written by those in black.
Give everything for nothing, running from forever.
Feel your heart fill with hate, loves greatest payback.
Watch your dreams slip away,
every moment your mind seems to stray.

And you will die, for me. But don't you ever cry for me.
Until these nightmares end, and these eagles descend
and pick you up, you scream.
But, don't you ever see it's a dream?
From corn fields above the park,
and pavement to the dark.

Hooks claw at my flesh...
The closest thing to enlightenment.
Broken, laid in a sea of wreckage,
she learns how fragile true cowards are.

Hesitation, growing quicker with every second.
Years of empty promises, drowning in what we've become.
In what I've done...
What have I done?

Clouds rupture above our best intentions.
9. Man of Gold (5:50)
(That very first day, standing in those beautiful rays.
The sun warms my skin. Refutation has made me sick...
The sun burns my skin.)

Are you talking to me?
Speak now, or remain mute.

As I fell to my knees and watched it fade away
I could not accept this fucking travesty.
Never good enough, I screamed end this day,
for I was not the best, and I could never be.
End this day
As I stand now in shame, the mirror changed.
What now stares back at me - you will fear.
The man I want to be is more than any prophecy.
Made of gold, I can never be.
You will fear... You will fear - me.

Rise up, with us. Stand now, with me.

Get up, don't try to stop, your time is almost up.
Let imperfections go and fucking live it up.
Get up, won't let them stop, because you're all caught up.
Let perfection know...
You won't ever stop, until your time is up.
Let imperfections go and fucking live it up.
Get up, don't let them stop, because you're all choked up.
Let perfection know that it's time is almost- time is almost- up.

I know how it feels to not be good enough for anyone.

Watch me, as I live this play.
Darkness as my mind today, I will never give up, as it's forever tomorrow.
Watch me, as I die this day.
Perfection as our vice this way, the one such greatness would never follow
You.
You turned down all of those who tried,
and now I am all that you desire.
If perfection grants me any use
it is this answer: Fuck you.

You now know how it feels to not be good enough for me.
10. Act III (3:05)
Die.

My existence feels like I'm walking upstream,
through a current strong enough to pull me...
Pull me under.
Four times over. Four times over.
Four times over. Four times over.

There are others with me, but they are walking along the banks, telling me to, "just get out of the water."
But instead of extending a hand in help they move on, and leave me behind.

Every once in a while I find a rock that is strong enough for me to lean on, and I can rest for a bit.
But the rocks always get tired of holding me up, and when they let go, I'm left drowning and thrown back.

And nothing is harder than standing up to that current, when everything in you is telling you how much easier things would be, if you just let yourself get dragged under.

I don't think you understand yourself.
I definitely don't understand myself.

I am not a victim of anything, for I am my own controversy,
and my own reprisal.

You can't kill yourself.
This will not be the absolution,
I will still be with you.
You can't shake me like the chills.
I was born with you and you can never change that,
and all of these problems you've faced in life won't go away.
So go ahead, drown yourself out.
I will haunt you in death like I haunted you in life.
