Love and Other Disasters Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Encaged (4:26)
Every night she stays at home waiting for him
All she ever wanted was a fragment of his love
Every night he goes on stage chasing the dream
Still he spends every surreal second thinking of her

I know we used to have it all figured out
Can't blame you for feeling deserted and alone
And I know I promised you a lot of things
But I can no longer

All of my life I've been waiting for someone like you
To fill the void inside of me
Even if there's ten thousand miles between us
You'll always be the one closest to my heart

I managed to bolster the defense of my heart
A bit too dense, a bit too strong for my own good
But you saw the small glitch in the solid ice wall
And somehow you scaled it up and made your way in

All of my life I've been waiting for someone like you
To fill the void inside of me
Even if there's ten thousand miles between us
You'll always be the one closest to my heart

Don't you see this is not the reckoning
of the undoing of all we built up

Don't you see this is not the reckoning
of the undoing of all...

I'll write it into lyrics
Cause I couldn't put it into words
It ruined a lot for me
Never meant to, to hurt you
Never meant to cause you any pain
But we both know how the story goes

Can't blame you for feeling deserted and alone
And I know I promised you a lot of things
But I can no longer

All of my life I've been waiting for someone like you
To fill the void inside of me
Even if there's ten thousand miles between us
You'll always be the one closest to my heart

Don't you see this is not the reckoning
of the undoing of all we built up

Don't you see this is not the reckoning
of the undoing of all...
2. Hellgate: Worcester (3:23)
You are an inspiration to us all
Armed with your plastic sword
A narrow mind and limited brain capacity
What I don't understand is
Why you revere a guy
Who's lacking an eye and never really existed

Tell me where's the sense in this?
(Why can't you open your minds)
Tell me what's the meaning of this
(Lose lose situation)

I feel for you god of war
Your fairer expenses
Must be insane with the mount you got in your garage
Don't you get me wrong
Cause I'm still impressed
By the bastardization between a horse and a spider

Tell me where's the sense in this?
(Why can't you open your minds)
Tell me what's the meaning of this
(Lose lose situation)
Maybe you should be the one who sacrificed an eye
To gain the wisdom you so badly require

Your savage agitation won't break us, can't break us
Just sit tight and watch our power grow stronger

Tell me where's the sense in this?
(Why can't you open your minds)
Tell me what's the meaning of this
(Loose loose situation)
Maybe you should be the one who sacrificed an eye
To gain the wisdom you so badly require

Time, time to feed the wolves
And open the hellgate
Tale a bullet for your team
and smile on your way down
Like captains of war
Following our orders down to hell
With no one but ourselves on our side
3. Jack of Diamonds (3:41)
A fugitive from unreality
No sign of my god damned serenity
Lost in these barren lands
That have nothing I demand
Had to look for something new
And that day I found you
I found you
I found you

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

A quasar from reality
With damaged mentality
I'll start editing your life
Replace the captain of your brain ship
Before we set sail for the fail

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

My destiny outruns me
And I can't find that key
To lock up everything that's bad inside of me
Don't you disagree
That your life would be so much better
Without me, that isn't hard to see
hard to see

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about

Living in a house of cards
Waiting for it all to fall
Hope for the best plan for the worst
That's what my life is all about
4. My Escape (4:10)
I see the world through eyes of desperation
Never knew how long I'd fall
But I fell trough years and years of darkness
Still I cannot seem to hit the ground

I let my guard down and you caught me by surprise
Nothing is ever carved in stone

Will I spend my life wondering
What could have been?
(If I didn't throw it away)
Or will I struggle on
And find a better path for myself
(for myself)

I build my life upon decades of experience
But what I build for years took days for you to raze
In the end I learned that one single snowflake
Can set an avalanche in motion

Some questions are dangerous, the truth is not an option
This is the illusion I pulled down over your eyes
But I let my guard down and you caught me by surprise
Nothing is ever carved in stone

Will I spend my life wondering
What could have been?
(If I didn't throw it away)
Or will I struggle on
And find a better path for myself
(for myself)

I secure my every step, slowly I advance away from you
How can I forgive you when it wasn't your fault

Will I spend my life wondering
What could have been?

Will I spend my life wondering
What could have been?
(If I didn't throw it away)
Or will I struggle on
And find a better path for myself
(for myself)

Will I spend my life wondering
What could have been?
(If I didn't throw it away)
Or will I struggle on
And find a better path for myself
5. Fallout (3:51)
This is the verity for a lot of you
And how you always stand
From the outside looking in
Now did you ever feel you are so open minded
That you don't really belong anywhere
Well I've been there too

Why are these vultures circling over me
I'm not dead yet
Used silence as a language for too long
This is where we make our stand
The wounds at my back begin to heal
Our enemy outnumber us three to one
But still we fight on

Someone has to build
Even if it's severe
A bridge between the worlds
We shoulder it for you
All borders will be removed
To create a better existence

I spend two years
To figure out myself
I say it's your time now
Your time to rise
This isn't your only choice
But your best choice
Refuse to stay put and watch this cancer grow
Until it explodes, we must interfere
Before the shit hits the fan

Someone has to build
Even if it's severe
A bridge between the worlds
We shoulder it for you
All borders will be removed
To create a better existence

This goes out to all you people
Who have been mistreated and abused
For what you believe in
This song is for you

The only freedom you'll ever get
Is your own mind and thoughts
Even if tyrants try to hold you down
They can never take that away from you

Why are these vultures circling over me
I'm not dead yet
Used silence as a language for too long
This is where we make our stand
The wounds at my back begin to heal
Our enemy outnumber us three to one
But still we fight on

Someone has to build
Even if it's severe
A bridge between the worlds
We shoulder it for you
All borders will be removed
To create a better existence

Someone has to build
Even if it's severe
A bridge between the worlds
We shoulder it for you
All borders will be removed
To create a better existence

To create a better existence
To create a better existence
To create a better existence
To create a better existence
6. Power Shift (3:32)
I really doubt this is the right side of the force
You better grab onto some hope
Cause you are going to need it as we go
Keep on fighting ignorance with even more ignorance
You'll see that sometimes the hand of fate must be forced

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

Let's sing to the anthem of the last days
There's no turning back
Let's sing together now for the last time (for the last time)

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
We have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

How many times did god fall asleep on the job?
I do find a lot of errors in his blueprints
Humanity being the biggest flaw
Like an inverted King Midas
We turn everything we touch to shit

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

Let's sing to the anthem of the last days
There's no turning back
Let's sing together now for the last time (for the last time)

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
We have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

I cannot see how my own world turned alien to me
Release me from these shackles
And I'll be the first to cross the line
Will it be diffrent on the other side?

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
We have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
We have to come to a conclusion
A power shift
7. Contradiction (3:32)
I used to be someone
But I grew to be something that I'm not
It feels like I'm cornered
By everything that you really want
Why are we here in this same old room

We stand here, with damaged hope
But still we carry on
We both know and always will
It cannot end like this
We still have a long way to go

It is kind of hard
To look back on all the good times
And realise nothing
Will ever be like it used to be

I wish you were someone I can only disengage
You opened a lot of doors in me but just closed a few
You're both the poison and the antidote
Is my best not good enough for you?

We stand here, with damaged hope
But still we carry on
We both know and always will
It cannot end like this
We still have a long way to go

They didn't build Rome in a day
We just need to ride out this storm
(ride out this storm)

We stand here, with damaged hope
But still we carry on
We both know and always will

We stand here, with damaged hope
But still we carry on
We both know and always will
It cannot end like this
We still have a long way to go
8. Damage Control (3:49)
Weaving another web of lies around me
Leaving an endless trail of pain behind me

I don't deserve the love you give to me
How to mend the damage done to you?
I would trade a kingdom for a real life mulligan
To vindicate what I have done

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

Encaged in a mirage of my own design
Engaged something I hardly can define

Even though I'm always on my run
Echoes of your voice still hunts me down
Waging war on myself
To vindicate what I have done
(To vindicate what I have done)

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

The older that I get the more memories I have to leave behind
Can't undo anything at all but for you I'll step in line and remain confined

My halo will never glow again
But the horns keep penetrating my skull

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

Home is where the heart is
So maybe that's where I left mine
I know I have failed you
But please don't change the lock on your heart

My halo will never glow again
9. Red Eyed Friend (4:43)
Million years of evolution
Still not close to perfection
God how much time do you need?
Cause I'm getting impatient
Release the source
And I'll find a way to alter my DNA
I'm on to you big guy
And I'm getting impatient

My red eyed friend
Time for us to part ways
My red eyed friend
Don't forget to write me

Why can't the demon in my head just help me?
Come back and burn all these painfull feelings
As you used to do before
(As you used to do before)

You blocked everything I felt
An instrument to unplug my heart
The voice in my head
Shut down my feelings

Come shut down my feelings
Come make me empty inside
Come shut down my feelings
Come make me empty inside

Why can't the demon in my head just help me?
Come back and burn all these painfull feelings
As you used to do before
(As you used to do before)

I can't do this all alone
I'm completely incomplete
I can't struggle on alone
You made me strong when I was weak

My red eyed friend
Time for us to part ways
My red eyed friend
Don't forget to write me

Why can't the demon in my head just help me?
Come back and burn all these painfull feelings
As you used to do before
(As you used to do before)

My red eyed friend where are you now
My red eyed friend I miss you so
My red eyed friend I'll be waiting for you
Where are you now
10. Affliction (5:11)
This is no ordinary demon
I've been down this road before
Driven by the wounds I couldn't hide
I know exactly where it goes
So I guess there's no tomorrow
And I can't remember yesterday
Locked in a time lapse
And it's soul crushing to say

At the end of my elbow
You'll find one golden rule
A ferocious discharge
You will hit the ground hard

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity

Left humanity behind long ago
Take a look into my world
So many places where I don't belong
Eradicate what I've become

A ferocious discharge
You will hit the ground hard

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
There's an oven waiting for you in hell
You'll be reaping what you sow in life
What you sow in life
What you sow in life

Had to put you in the place
And wipe that smile off your face
You can put a king's cloths on a scarecrow
In the end it's still just a scarecrow
Still just a scarecrow

I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they dignify iniquity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
Why they justify rapacity
I don't know, I don't care
And I don't understand
There's an oven waiting for you in hell
You'll be reaping what you sow in life
What you sow in life
What you sow in life

You're the affliction
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they justify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they dignify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they justify
You'll pay what you owe

Don't understand
You're the affliction
Why they dignify
You'll pay what you owe
