Dark Light Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Vampire Heart
You can't escape the wrath of my heart
Beating to your funeral song
All faith is lust for hell regained
And love dust in the hands of shame

Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed
And lead you along this path in the dark
Where I belong until I feel your warmth

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

I am the thorns in every rose, you've been sent by hope
I am the nightmare waking you up from the dream of a dream of love

Let me weep you this poem as heaven's gates close
And paint you my soul scarred and alone
Waiting for your kiss to take me back home

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart
2. Rip Out The Wings Of A Butterfly
Heaven ablaze in your eyes
We're standing still in time
The blood on our hands is the wine
We offer as sacrifice

Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul

This endless mercy mile
We're crawling side by side
With hell freezing over in our eyes
Gods kneel before our crime

Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
3. Under The Rose
I dream of the winter in my heart turning to spring
While the ice gives way under my feet
And so I drown with the sun

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose

I open my eyes with a sigh of relief
As the warmth of summer's sunlight dances around me
And I see you with dead leaves in your hands

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose
4. Killing Loneliness
Memories sharp as daggers
Pierce into the flesh of today
The suicide of love took away all that matters
And buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

Nailed to a cross together
As solitude begs us to stay
We disappear in the lie, forever
And denounce the power of death over our souls as secret words are said to start a war

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness
5. Dark Light
Shivers run through the spine
Of hope as she cries
The poisoned tears of a life denied
In the raven-black night
Holding hands with -

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with your smile
Dark light

In oblivion's garden
Her body's on fire
Writhing towards the angel defiled
To learn how to die
In peace with her God

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with your smile
Dark light
6. Behind The Crimson Door
Covered the carcass of time with flowers
To send the scent of blame to the grave
Set the darkest thoughts on fire
And watched the ashes climb to heaven's gates

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me"

Death served wine for lovers
Brought from the world where devils reign
And intoxicated angels with sorrow
They witnessed in the eyes of their slaves

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me"
7. Face Of God
I'm drained but aching for more
And the devil inside is reading
The words of the saddest poem
To be engraved on the stone on my grave

I'd kill to share your pain (and carry the shame)
And sell my soul for you just to say:

"I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's the shadow on our wall
With the face of God"

Nothing will be enough
For the ones who keep on stumbling
In the garden of withering trust
Without the courage to leave

I'd take my life for your kiss (grant me this)
And lose it all to take you across the abyss

I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's the shadow on our wall
With the face of God

You dream what I'm dreaming
And see what I'm seeing
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of God

Labyrinth in the shape of a heart
Loves' secret architecture
I find myself to be lost in the
Arms of your fate

I'd kill to share your pain (please let me stay)
And sell my soul for you just to say
Loves name in vain
Again and again...

I dream what you're dreaming
And feel what you're feeling
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of God

You dream what I'm dreaming
And see what I'm seeing
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of God
8. Drunk On Shadows
Hiding underneath
The veil of broken dreams we find her weeping
On her once white wings
She will be carrying the weight of our deeds

And she bleeds for love forever gone

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves, a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

Finding souls to feed
The nightside of Eden
We see her struggling
For her love's last breath And walk off

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves, a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

She's blinded by the fear
Of life and death and everything in between
We smile when she cries a river of tears
A mirror where we see nothing but a reflection of heaven too far away

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves, a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
9. Play Dead
A moth into a butterfly and a lie into the sweetest truth
I'm so afraid of life
I try to call your name but I'm silenced by the fear of dying in your heart once again

I see the seasons changing
And in the heart of this autumn I fall
With the leaves from the trees

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I cry like God cries the rain and I'm just one step away from the end of today

I see the reasons changing
And in the warmth of the past I crawl
Scorched by the shame

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
Before it's too late
10. The Nightside Of Eden
Divided we stand in the light of a frozen sun
Cursing the Gods we have become
We steal the fire from a sacred heart
And bleed the wine unholy
We fall in love with the serpent's song
And fear nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again -
Dead

"Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever will be crucified to a dream"

Deranged we're tearing away the petals of desire
Learning the mathematics of evil by heart
We deceive ourselves to start a war
Within the realm of senses
And descend to the circle number four
Where we are nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again -
Dead

"Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever will be crucified to a dream"
