Promise Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Nothing (4:55)
What is it you want from me
I’ve nothing to give
You’ve taken everything
You didn’t leave me shit

Not even worth mentioning
Not even worth a thought
Not wrth the pain
Not worth speaking of

I thought that once I meant something
But now I see I’m nothing – nothing

What is this you’ve done to me
What is it you thrive
Do you enjoy making me
Feel unalive

Not even worth mentioning
Not even worth a thought
Not worth the pain
Not worth speaking of

I thought to you I meant something
But now I see I’m nothing – nothing

It’s you I’ll always love
I know you don’t care
You left me, in despair

Why do I feel this way
Why do I even care
I have no self esteem
There’s nothing there
I’m so unimportant
- insignificant –
The way I truly feel
Makes no difference

I wish for once I could be something
But I guess I’ll always be your nothing
Nothing

It’s what I’ll always be – nothing
Nothing - nothing
Nothing - nothing
Nothing - nothing
Nothing - nothing
2. Forever Torn (4:24)
I am alone
My grief eternal
All love is lost
I’m shrouded in despair
Despair – despair

I’m cast onto shade
I hear tragic serenades
And her promise stings
In the back of my mind

Her promise stings
With tears in my eyes
With tears in my eyes
So sadden and worn
So sadden and worn
Set me free of this pain
Set me free of this pain
I forever torn
I forever torn

I fade to black
Escape memories that burn
Paradise is drowning
Deep on waters of lethe... ya

Unremembered harmony
Massacred adoration
Deviated truth
Sink into oblivion

Her luke warm amorous
So lucid and clear
Tender hands to ravage claws
Ripping out my heart

This pain is forever
With tears in my eyes
With tears in my eyes
So sadden and worn
So sadden and worn
Set me free of this pain
Set me free of this pain
I forever torn
I forever torn
With tears in my eyes
With tears in my eyes
So sadden and worn
So sadden and worn
Set me free of this pain
Set me free of this pain
I forever torn
I forever torn
3. Black Soil Nest (4:52)
Black soil nest
Where she remains
Hamony cracked
When she died

You know what I’ve always enjoyed
Was the smell of the dead – ya

Remember her promise
Together forever
Not even death
Will keep us apart

Like a moth to a flame
I’m drawn to her
I hunger for her touch
I long for her

I never could understand that boy’s
Obsession with dead things

Black soil nest
Black soil nest

Like a moth to a flame
I’m drawn to her
I hunger for her touch
I long for her

The time has come
To be reunited
Down in this grave
Her caress is cold

Like a moth to a flame
I’m drawn to her
I hunger for her touch
I long for her

Black soil nest
Black soil nest
Black soil nest
Black soil nest
4. Promise (4:19)
Promise

Tell me why you’ve become so damned unconsenting
The way you make me feel is so condescending

So help me!
Cross my heart and hope to die
You swore on your God
You never told a lie

So commit yourself to me
Under hand and seal
Undertake this sacred oath
Immolate this deal
On your word of honour
Consummate this pact
Bind yourself with me
Finalise this act

Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world

Make vows you won’t keep
I can’t trust in your word
If you think you can fool me
Then you must be absurd
You say you’ve been faithful
On this you swear
There’s nothing to see
Cause nothing’s there

Do you really expect me to give credence in this deception
When I know your truth is nothing but perversion

You think you can lie to me
And get away with it all
You think that I’m a jerk
Can’t believe your gall
I should have always known
It would never last
I’ll never forget
Lies form the past

Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
Promise me...promises...promising...
Promise me the world
5. Bitter End (3:58)
You say I’m so different
So apathetic and smug
What the fuck do you expect
After what you have done

The way I live my life
To the bitter end
Full of hate and rage
To the bitter end
I truly hate you
I fucking despise you

Don’t ask forgiveness
You won’t get shit from me
I don’t forgive, I don’t forget
You won’t get off that easy

The way I live my life
To the bitter end
Full of hate and rage
To the bitter end
I truly hate you
I fucking despise you

I can’t believe what you have done
After all, I thought we were friends
I thought we’d always be together
Forever together to the bitter end
You told me so many fucking lies
You’ve become such a fucking whore
I won’t take your shit anymore
I won’t take your shit anymore

You say I’m so hostile
A malicious spiteful jerk
Well my unbeloved bitch
That’s how I act when I’m hurt

The way I live my life
To the bitter end
Full of hate and rage
To the bitter end
I truly hate you
I fucking despise you

That’s right, you stupid cunt
I fucking hate you to the bitter end
6. Bloodletting (Concrete Blonde cover) (5:39)
There’s a crack in the mirror
And a bloodstain on the bed
There’s a crack in the mirror
And a bloodstain on the bed
O you were a vampire and baby
I’m walking dead
O you were a vampire and baby
I’m walking dead

I got the ways and means
To new orleans I’m going
Down by the river
Where it’s warm and green
I’m gonna have a drink, and walk around
I got a lot to think about oh yeah

There’s a rocking chair by the window
Down the hall
I hear something there in the shadow
Down the hall
O you were a vampire and now I am
Nothing at all
O you were a vampire and now I am
Nothing at all

I got the ways and means
To new orleans I’m going
Down by the river
Where it’s warm and green
I’m gonna have a drink, and walk around
I got a lot to think about oh yeah

They used to dance in the garden in the
Middle of the night
Dancing out in the garden in the
Middle of the night
O you were a vampire
And now I’ll never see the light
O you were a vampire
And now I’ll never see the light

I got the ways and means
To new orleans I’m going
Down by the river
Where it’s warm and green
I’m gonna have a drink, and walk around
I got a lot to think about
I got the ways and means
To new orleans I’m going
Down by the river
Where it’s warm and green
I’m having a drink and walking around
I got a lot to think about oh yeah
7. Unnameable (4:07)
She’s so degrading
Immoralized
She’s so deceitful
Shot full of lies
With open arms
She pulled me in
She spread her legs
So full of sin

Impure wanton whore
Unfaithful cunt
Lustful seductive bitch
She knows what I want

She’s so lascivious
Totally obscene
She’s so promiscuous
And so unclean
With both hands
She pulled out my heart
Stood back and laughed
Tore me apart

Insidious wicked wench
The femme fatale
Sadistic vicious slut
She brings me hell

Don’t you ever speak – her name
Don’t you ever say – unnameable
Hope you never do - the same
Hope you never meet – unnameable

You’ll see her mark
Reprehensible stain
Just never utter
Her forbidden name

Don’t you ever speak – her name
Don’t you ever say – unnameable
Won’t you hear my words – Christ
Won’t you ever learn – why
Why
8. Where Dwells Sadness (6:16)
Why make a promise you won’t keep
You know I don’t beliee in your lies

You lied (all lies)
You bend the truth
I’m blind (so blind)
I’m such a fool

Why even say that you’ll be with me forever
You know forever is never forever

I’m depressed (depressed)
With a heavy heart
No hope (so hopeless)
I’m at a loss

Suffer me (suffering)
Unto this agony
Drown in me (drowning)
In depths of misery

Broken down (so broken)
In grim visage
Watch me laugh (I’m laughing)
On the wrong side of the mouth

Suffer me (suffering)
Unto this agony
Drowning (drowning)
In depths of misery

I feel the sorrow so deep inside
This anguish I suffer from all your lies
I seek release from all this madness
Shrouded in despair – consumed by sadness

Suffer me (suffering)
Unto this agony
Drowning (drowning)
In depths of misery

I believed her, she lied
Where dwells sadness, inside of me
Where stems the madness, in me!
She lied
9. Suffering (4:32)
I suffer
And writhe in pain
The agony I feel
Bares your name
I’m trapped
In this hell you create
Your lack of love
Fuels my hate

I live for tomorrow
But I die each day
I’m lost in sorrow
Take the suffering away

I remember when there wasn’t any pain
I remember when it didn’t hurt

I laugh
At the promise you made
The stab in the back
x**x**x**x**xx blade
I scream
At your lies and all
The depths of this misery
From the nightmare you cause

I live for tomorrow
But I die each day
I’m lost in sorrow
Take the suffering away

I’ll show you what it’s like to suffer

Know what it’s like to wanna die
Take your life – suicide
This agony you caused me
I need to end – the suffering

Suffer – suffering – suffer

I suffer
And writhe in pain
This agony I feel
Bares your name
I’m trapped
In this hell you create
Your lack of love
Fuels my hate

I live for tomorrow
But I die each day
I’m lost in sorrow
Take the suffering away
Take the suffering away
Take the suffering away
Take the suffering away
The suffering
10. Inner Demon (5:29)
I infest your mind
You’re not part of me
I possess your soul
Get the fuck out of me

Twisted voice from deep inside
Twisting schemes in my mind
No room for reason
Screams my inner demon
Inner demon

I enhance your hate
You just bring me pain
I distort your love
It’s already been slain

Broken feelings transform my thoughts
Mistaken senses begin to rot
No chance to reason
With my inner demon

Omni-presence felt – everywhere it dwells
Sanity departs – domination starts – ya
Inner demon

I control your life
You’ve already begun
I command your being
It’s already been done

Grotesque visions become so real
Distorted dreams now prevail
I now have reason
To unlock this demon

I have opened your mind
I unite with you
I now own your soul
I give myself to you

Understand what it’s all for
Realise it’s how I endure
Done for this reason
Release my inner demon
Demon
Demon
Demon
