Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. In Venere Veritas (3:35)
Let's fall apart together now
Zipping cupid in a body bag well-worn
Next to the mausoleum he was born in
Picking up the pieces of this gory glory of it all
From eve to morn, for eve to mourn

[Chorus:]
Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing in venere veritas
Come inside let the fire burn you alive
And sing baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas

Let's fall apart together now.

There is a method to our sadness
As we drag the mirror ball and chain
Through the twilight again dressed up in shame

[Chorus]

We are begging for a reflection
From an unshuttered heart
To blind and chase us over the edge

[Chorus]

These are the wounds that are not meant to heal at all

Let's fall apart together now
Let's fall apart together now
2. Scared to Death (3:40)
In the biblical sense and sensibility
Let me know you
I'll kiss that smile off your face just say when

Just say when.

I'm not afraid to say "I love you"
Any more than I used to be babe I am scared to death
To fall in love (with you)

All these pick-up lines from hell
Icebreakers infernal
From a heart so black and blue
Only for you

Just say when again.

I'm not afraid to say, "I love you."
Any more than I used to be, babe.
I am scared to death.
I am scared to death to fall in love with you.

With you.

[solo]

I'm not afraid to say, "I love you."
Anymore than I used to be, babe.
I am scared to death.
I am scared to death to fall in love.

I'm not afraid to admit I adore you
Any more than I was before babe I am scared to death
To fall in love with you

With you. [x2]

I'm scared to death. [x3]

And you're sweet like poison.
3. Heartkiller (3:29)
Farewell heartless world,
I'll send you a postcard burnt in flames
You've tried so hard to extinguish with the fear of failing,
I'll write down everything I have learned,
And edit it down to a single word "Love"
For you I'm waiting, anticipating

[Chorus:]
Sparks will fly beneath the Luna alight,
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
A little we die above the lesser light,
For you I'm open wide,
Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

Heartkiller

Top hats off to the return,
Of the beat to lick a wound
Too cursed for some and blessed for a few,
It doesn't have to make any sense at all,
Come hither and we'll fall in love
For love I'm crawling out of patience, baby

[Chorus]

Paint all your sorrows for me to sing hearkiller
Draw your pain and hear me hum it out

[Chorus]

Heartkiller
Heartkiller

Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
4. Dying Song (3:29)
I've seen you breathe life into the weakest of hearts,
And heard you scream out loud the sweetest poem,
Echoing across the ocean reminding me why I still try
To hold onto whatever is left of you and I.

Shedding skin to a dying song,
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more,
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like life.

I've seen these dreams being crushed by a single thought,
And felt the envy of sadness engulf all warmth
Barely alive under ice by exchanging sighs,
With tomorrow quivering in the loneliest light,

Shedding skin to a dying song,
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like life and love,
Life and love with you

Crawl back into bed tomorrow's trembling at the sight of you and I.

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like life and love,
Life and love,
Life and love (dying song)
Life and love (a dying song)
With you (a dying song)
With you (dying song)
With you (dying song)
With you (a dying song)
5. Disarm Me (with Your Loneliness) (4:01)
The promise of heaven pushed us right back to hell
Turned three sevens into three sixes again
And you laughed at my face when I told you how much it hurts
And said...

Disarm me with your loneliness just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness telling me how you love

You keep on tempting me to go on whatever the cost
To witness the prettiest flower in bloom wither to dust
So I'll break all the rules in this endless game once called "Love" for you...

Disarm me with your loneliness just like always before and
Deceive me out of my emptiness telling me how you love
Me with all your heart no more

Disarm me with your loneliness just like always before

Disarm me with your loneliness just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness telling me how you love me with all your heart no more
6. Love, the Hardest Way (3:19)
Love is the devil counting teardrops in the rain
To the sound of a chalkboard symphony played with nails
For what it's worth I don't wanna see you hurt anymore
Than you have to

[Chorus:]
Dine on glass, wine on blood
Baby, love the hard way
Baudelaire in Braille
Baby, love the harder way
Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you love the hardest way

Pretty like a flower on a tomb you are kissed
blue by the last arrows of your sun
Olly olly oxen free
Hide and go weep
Oh, no more
Unless you want

[Chorus]

Love the hardest way [x3]
7. Katherine Wheel (3:26)
Come on and break me a limb at a time
Wrap me around your spokes so tight
There is no letting go
Spin me around to blur the line between you and I
What are you waiting for?

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine wheel I'm burning for you
Please don't stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine wheel
Katherine wheel

Holding hands won't be enough
In a world giving head to a god
Love in theory and practice chapter one

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine wheel I'm burning for you
Please don't stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine wheel
Katherine wheel

I twist and turn in your arms swirl
The dizzier I get the clearer I see with you
I'm at peace with the world within

[x2]
Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine wheel I'm burning for you
Please don't stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine wheel
Katherine wheel
8. In the Arms of Rain (3:46)
Once again we found ourselves to be lost
Holding hands while straying from the path in the forest dark
Aren't you happy to see me crawl serpentine towards the sun to you

[Chorus:]
Lift the lid of your heart's casket in the arms of rain
We'll drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby it's the hail Marys for the secrets you've kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Again, I fought myself and lost
Come bite the apple and I'll coil around your heart
I'm so happy to see you weep along
In these arms you belong

[Chorus]

Ave Maria we've tried
Ave Maria we've cried
Ave Maria we've died

[Chorus x2]

It's the end of a road, hold me
It's the end of a road and we're free
9. Ode to Solitude (3:58)
Easy on the eyes, uneasy on the heart
Sew my wrists shut, sew my wrists shut with hope
Straight into the light shining bright
I dare you to dream this
And I dare you to dream this gone
What I want to know is which makes you smile less

[Chorus:]
Here's to the pain the light of the oncoming train
Come on ode to solitude in chains
Here's to the pain as always heaven in flames bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

Map the scars of a heart bruised and torn
Loosen the noose love loosen the noose with love
What I want to know is why you keep me hanging

[Chorus]

If I should fail to stay
Remember not to forget this feeling you have
I've failed please pretend it never happened baby

[Chorus x2]

Ode to solitude [x4]
10. Shatter Me with Hope (3:51)
The girl who cried "Love, won't you come and play with me?"
You can be Cassandra, underneath the sword of Damocles
We'll tear this baby apart wise like Salomon

[Chorus:]
Run, come shatter me now, shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in, bleed out all sorrows
Scream me a dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
Shatter me with hope

She'll be the witness to the repose of evelyn
Push the needles into the of canticles of ecstasy
Turn to page 43
And you'll know how I feel

[Chorus]

Swear on your heart's grave I'm wrong
And run like your life's depending on it
'cause it is!

We'll tear this baby apart, wise like Solomon
Turn to page forty three, and you'll know how I feel

[Chorus]

Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now
Oh, u oh
Shatter me now shatter me now shatter me now
Oh, u oh
Scream me a dream
Shatter me now shatter me now shatter me now
Scream me a dream
(Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now)
11. Acoustic Funeral (for Love in Limbo) (3:57)
You missed the winter and it followed you back home
Where sun kissed the crimson footsteps in the melting snow
We are doing our best to disown the golden mean
By these acts of cruelty in the name of beauty to be free

[Chorus:]
The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song
For the acoustic funeral

On the verge of a vow to kill all reason locking that door
To a nightmare within a nightmare we are bound to adore
Let the planchette in the shape of heart glide to you
And finally confirm all fears to be so real

It's so real.

[Chorus]

It's unreal underneath the ice so thin I am turning blue
The one last thing I know to be real is the shadow of you
Killing love with a kiss

[Chorus x2]

Let's re-enact the fall for the acoustic funeral
12. Like St. Valentine (3:14)
In the name of love lost
I'm frozen to her and I want you
To come build me a bridge soaked
In gasoline and pass the torch

Hey baby let me be your Valentine
Saint Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep a lie alive
Like Saint Valentine

Like the couple from Pompeii
Our drama is put on display
Along with a dove stuffed in a coffin of glass
Entitled "Love lust and the holy ghost"

Those were the days

Hey, baby, let me be your valentine
St. Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive

Hey, baby, let me be your valentine
St. Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive
Like St. Valentine

Love is the only war worth dying for
Lift me up to knock me down I'm all yours for now

Hey, baby, let me be your valentine
St. Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive

Hey, baby, let me be your valentine
St. Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive
Like St. Valentine

Hey, baby, let me be your valentine, St. Valentine. [x4]
Like St. Valentine
13. The Foreboding Sense of Impending Happiness (3:13)
By your heart strings I'm hanging from a dream,
Gently swinging in the warm autumn breeze.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up, no more.

Tip toeing along a strand of your hair suspended between,
These thoughts and actions miles above reality.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Come look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

[Background:]
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.
Look at the scars, smother a heart, opening up.

Opening up, opening up, opening up, opening up.
Look at the scars, You open me up, open me up.
Smother a heart, Opening up, opening up.
Look at the Scars, You open me up, opening up, open me up
