Courting Tragedy and Disaster Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Dominion (3:16)
Defiant thought crossed through demons
Converge in fierce gesture recollection forged to fit
And walk among the ravenous
Dragging feet to cover tracks
Sparing touch to collapse the senses
Dare to care - dare to cross and strike

The lifeline handsomely
We'll always go down fighting
Devout rebellion - our haven is reborn

Loving children of departure conceived in conflict
Plea a pledge of coursing anger to convert their prepossessing
Dirty rotten rivalry
Antidote in symmetry
Pulling punches for servitude
To crush their rotting existence

Hailed in the fold of a setting sun - we defy

So precious so pretty - dominion
Stars on the firing line - dominion
Made famous in obscurity - dominion
The underworld is ours to own

We beloved - wait to feed on the filth of these new evils
Against each wired repeat of nostalgia's novelties
Depiction hints to surface - resurrect and manifest
Accustomed to new thirsts only to vanish in quiet

Prophets of rage - scattered in hordes
This dominion defines everything they possess
And we defy
2. Rain To The Sound of Panic (3:57)
Tune out the noise of swan songs
That savior the passing of scarlets
Red and black on chemical romance
Rush the danger in a silhouette
Carve away the image possession
Private portal to each unnamed
Radiant - suspicious irony drowned deep in territorial pissings
My eyes are fixed on the grace of innocence
Disdained hunger tastes the gift of fatal pleasure
Just a cynic in a downpour of sentimental
Shedding these vows to the flesh of
Sweat soaked monuments
That just fall apart
Joyless devotionals spreading truth through the lips of liars
Faith and its' lore twine to mark their sacrifice
Seizing answers through the echoes of conversation
Sewn shut to replace myself in harms way

Land slides of life times smother each perfect likeness
Those sterling makeovers dance their mystery to blend
Each repulse and flourish persuading with flawless savagery
That only the lonely can understand

Panic - let it rain on me
Each so irresistible and deadly
They are the muses of existence

Swelling outcry pricks the crest of moral judgement
Infection taunts the heat of appetite
Intoxicating her thin veil of elegance
Separates the distance to tranquility
But never lets you in

Such a sight for deserted eyes and they'll never let you in
3. A Girl In Glass (4:55)
It's what she meant with open ends
The scaled cracks our numbered and counting down
There is no contact - so shrive away
She cannot save it from herself

Rather be somewhere else
Rather be someone else
Her judgement from the mirror meets
With shut reaction
Its conviction is cause to her decline

The quiet touch of addicted glamour
Dates the tyrant child unsatisfied a portrait's trash
Attempts corruption to marvel the ovations of thoughtlessness

White knuckled substance - no self-control
Ghost faced smiles - cut ear to ear
Strung out reprisal -dated and covered in
Dope sick afternoon simplicity

Hedonistic escape to shroud her symptoms decrements the ordinary

She can shatter
She can break - forever young
The girl in the glass is one of us
Hurt it more to make her yours
The girl is interrupted

Immense illusion can end transmission till death will she part

Kill it and put it to rest
She's never coming back
4. Kiss Or Kill (4:17)
Kiss or kill at fallen will
Her dark embrace of sorrow spills
Heed the heart at bent knee
Screams farewell from deep beneath
Hate and hide through outside eyes
Craves the ache of our demise
A slower death - subsiding sting
Hush the tones of searing peace
Let it seep in this divine suffocation
She took my breath away
You held perfection
Wrapped in persuasion

My fallen angel of darkened bliss
The luminous stare of innocence
Reopen the wounds of forbidden loss
Your cathartic mystery cut me twice as hard
Those poisoned lips of tenderness ployed
Pierced through to kill me twice as hard
The warmth of desire
So transcendent and dangerous
When the risk of romance is hopeless
So fucking hopeless

Your presence lingers
And keeps a sadness in this smile
Each captured moment now lies face down

Sweetness I keep my fingers crossed
As I lay and wait
Lovingly by your side
For one last caress
5. Jacob Shock (3:17)
Unleashed - he will unleash with brutal backlash
That holds my bane and beauty
I'll grant him vengeance to render them powerless
Punish me bitter battle of bottled beasts
So sick and deranged masochistic masked indifference
Half-hearted possession laden in sate and loathing
Show no mercy to bring them to their knees

Hunt them down

Ignore the sounds of sirens and screams
Move in for the kill
A cunt and a cutthroat designed in scathing pain
He'll tempt and he'll torment until they fall from grace
Seek and destroy his prey on display

Make you suffer those prayers are never answered
Fiction found fatal skipped straight to tragedy
Stalk and strangle - serenade my inner beast
Seduce this savage and send virtue straight to hell

This pounding turmoil of sadistic egotism
Is the face of a stranger close to home
And he awakes attached to the anchor
Of impatience and self denial

He'll come alive
I'll come alive
6. Cherum (4:16)
Disengage - silence breaks the desperation
Loneliness fueled enclosed in solitude
Push the void buckle under its preciousness
The sting of dejection nestled in conformity
Called by name - enthralled or covetous
Mesmerized - it's everything I am
Pick the poison - my thirst - her existence
Passiveness is the thorn in my side

Testing the limits perpetual motion entangles morality
Slicing at will fullness to leave on empty
Enticed by debauchery borrowed in to corrupt the lust
Of awe- defining nature - she leaves her mark on me

And it's become the only thing that I trust
The last piece that will never ever leave
Daunted by false transition justifies complacency
When elation exploits the weakness of purity

Protect me from the break of revulsion
Against the glimmer of fates first light
Embrace the ache of aftermath
For I am more alone than I have ever been

I recoil - the dust has settled - cleared the way for deliverance
Bares the weight of hope and harmony
Bite the tongue to the voice of reason
Cut the throat to destiny
Let the cruel days pass with no serenity
Love will tear you apart
7. It's Nights Like This That Keep Us Alive (3:06)
Carve the eyes out of our heads and slash our tongues if we scream
Throw the noose around the necks of the kin who sew and seek
For we are distant and too far fetched from the themes of unrest
Diverse in resistance - revamped in defying threat

Its nights like this that keep us alive
They shed our skin by the host of salvation
By the skin of my teeth retributions made serene

We never wanted it to be like this
We never wanted sympathy

Those eyes like knives throw a soiled glance of suicide
This torrid struggle is carnage to their fear

Master to servant gagged by tourniquet
Save your breath and savor this moment
For the oath of onslaught in spitting vile
Brings a pompous death to your throne

Its nights like this that keep us alive
8. Loveless and Goodbye (4:45)
Yearning for the crass in dusk to fall
I can feel the pulse of a temptress stare
It begs seduction coiled curse a spark of severance
Trite reflection in sacred enlightenment
Cold divinity is choking and tears at flesh
We scream to breathe - fight for confinement

So live and let die - loveless and goodbye

Deaden the bright of blue eyes and red skies
That captures this deep disturbance
Discovering the destruction of true enemies
Within our selves lay dormant with accusation
In the comfort of self indulgence
Scratch the itch that spells disaster
To shed the praise in righteousness

Carry this message of confession
To the addict who still suffers
With so much to hide and nothing to offer

In this covert glass house of deviance and sympathy
We destroy refuge - we destroy everything
So how will we sleep tonight

Welcome the remedy dead ends of bitter reality
A common count for a sadist and a queen
Embellished devotion hexed from worship
Staggers the relevance of tyranny
Shards from whispers and insight
Split the clean slate of sanctuary
Subtle overture invades space
Imposing restrained desire
Infesting each mistake to
Suspend all discipline
They fight for air
We run for cover

So make me your fledgling and lay me down
9. Scars In The Landscapes (3:37)
Long live the eerie strange of lie soaked beauty
Synthetic impression fills the gash of imposing danger
Satire feeds the flame to awake hostility
Full blown premonition gun down to solid ground
Free will can starve prestige
Disassemble mental structure and drops the weight to hide prosperity

And when the lights go out
We're stripped down reckless
And when the lights go out
We're stripped down to nothing

Say it isn't so easy

Caved in controversy withstands the test of time
Enlists salvation's anthem - pinpoints the enemy
Open fire penetration drags the scene of substance
Relieves coded acceptance to yield any temptation

The call of strangers in self deception
Makes attraction so much harder to swallow
Repairs a bitter bleeding conscience

Crown the tender keepsake that fathoms
The beating of prediction sells the heat
To fill the air with accident
Limits pursuance
Long lost but not forgotten
Manipulation's sudden crush
Sugar coats the compliment

And those scars in the landscape
They're all dressed to kill

An infamous victim of shocking truth
Crafts the skill of never saying you're sorry

For what I've done
10. Sense of Passings (4:07)
Perception brought wisps of irreverence
Lasting days beyond understanding
The stain of grief in stretched emotion
Flaunts the hangings of distant loves

Exit healing - closure's chemistry
Flows like a violent rain to flood
The unresponsive calm - motionless
A bed of nails for me to lay
Breaks the numb progressive sense
In losing one to (my) death's arrogance

Half closed slits from razor's cold kiss
Marks remembrance of downward spirals
Seals memory in endless reversals
And holds sincerity in every sentimental scar

Raveled rotations leaves grievous discharge
Idle appease to final descent inflicts the
Morbid state of purgatorial asylum

Exploit the somber
Obey disorder
Inject evasion
And embody servility

(I've lost all feeling - I've lost all control)

Symbolic extractions sentenced in struggle
Joins the stillness of isolation
Forged through anguish

Fuck this pain away
11. When Midnight Breaks (3:58)
This is fallacy bled through the lines of secrecy
Born again misfortune skirts the edge of sanity
Bound in contrasts to contradict the depths of violence
So tightly knit drink deep from the marrow of life
But be cautious for what is wished
Locked away from curious minds who seek your death
Guilt and pleasure molds the crimes that fit their deaths
Locked away from curious minds who devour
The testimony to ignite the legacy

A cancer in the heat of the night prey so faint and still
Hollow hallowed silence pried behind such screaming winds
From madness to mayhem so torrent and merciless
The terror will ring sky high when my blade comes down with spite

When midnight breaks
It's time to strike - It's time to strike

I will strike with malice amiss this vast darkness
And calm this better crave to kill

This is a warning
You felt my warning
Demoralized desensitized condemned

I am damned
