The Serpent Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Anemia in Your Sheets (3:59)
Found in your sheets, dead in your sleep.
I watch you drain as you're reaching for me.
No photographs left in the path.
No one will ask...where you've gone. Covered under rain and thunder.
Wash away the stains that I've created.
And I feel your heartbeat fail...
Oh, I am your worst nightmare.
No one will hear you scream
2. Stay Captive (4:09)
Watching for you,
Conceived with no eyes.
Listen for the voice.
Plant within me, eyes that open.
Leading where I walk.

I feel I know you well,
If I were you I'd wait

(Chorus)
Until someone moves or cares,
Stay captive.
Keep yourself there,
Wait for love. (x2)

I see everything,
Every move I make,
Painted before you.
Stall your move,
Heart that lingers.
I only move for you.

I feel I know you well,
If I were you I'd wait


(Chorus)
Until someone moves or cares,
Stay captive.
Keep yourself there,
Wait for love. (x2)

(Interlude)

Until someone moves or cares,
Stay captive.
Keep yourself there,
Wait for love. (x2)

Wait for love.

Until someone moves or cares,
Wait for love. (x4)
3. Dancing with the Enemy (3:04)
You look back, over your shoulder,
To see what could have been.
Do you want to see what used to be?
Someone you called friend?

Dance with me my enemy,
To finish what was lost.

These sheets we're wearing...
Perfect for the occasion.
This is where we dance tonight,
All that you have to do is keep what you held onto,
This is where we dance, tonight, tonight, tonight.

Voices talking, he said, she said,
I don't care about that.
This sensitive silence, between you and I,
I'll be the one to break it.

These sheets we're wearing...
Perfect for the occasion.
This is where we dance tonight,
All that you have to do is keep what you held onto,
This is where we dance, tonight, tonight, tonight.


Dance with me,
To Finish what was lost.
(finish what was lost)

Dance with me,
To Finish what was lost.
(Finish what was lost)

What was lost, (Lost)

These sheets we're wearing...
Perfect for the occasion.
This is where we dance tonight,
All that you have to do is keep what you held onto,
This is where we dance, tonight, tonight, tonight
4. Avalanche (5:21)
Wishing someone would break my legs
A burden too heavy to bear
I've tasted the lips of the ancients
and witnessed the fall of hope, Hope
Like saviors to the planet we have risen
Taking out anyone in our path
Infiltrate the heart of the enemy
As they suck the stream of life
From the decapitation of jenova
To the drowning of aeris
Don't come even a little bit closer
Or I'll show you what this ultimate weapon is capable of.
Infecting, Infecting our soldiers
Petty experiments solely to find
The strongest breed of chaos
To further corrupt our world failed
5. Maria (4:32)
Maria,
I told you to stay here,
Here...
(x2)

Maria,
I told you to stay here,
Here...
(x2)

All I want to know is how they broke you,
All I want to know is how they broke you,
(x4)

Struggle to keep your life,
Don't let them take,
Don't let them take,
You,
Struggle to keep your life,
Don't let them take,
Don't let them take,
You,
Struggle to keep your life,
Don't let them take,
Don't let them take,
You...

I Need It.
I Need You To Tell Me
6. Dropped from the Cherry Tree (3:40)
Destroyed at birth
Crooked bloodline
Destined to be a failure
The moment I was dropped from your tree

Another unknown man
I could hear his voice
From the bedroom
You've tainted my fathers eyes.

A night for my brother
He was just a lonely child
I was chased back to sleep by your naked fists

Another discarded letter to you

Dear mother, now you know how it feels
I look back and I can't believe that it's real
Bound to grow up alone
so I could teach myself
How to never be like you
7. The Wax Walls of an Empty Room (3:42)
Burn the candle down to the end!
In darkness I can't find a reason to pretend!
Make me see things that I don't want to see!
Images of someone, who I used to be!

This empty room is my companion.
My empty heart gives me compassion.

You gave all I have
And I'll never ask for anything from you.
You gave all I have
And I never wanted more.

Looking down, shards of glass beneath your skin!
I can't stand to see it. A mirror takes my sin!
Hold my head close to your heart!
I can hear it beating. Is this where it all starts?

Show me your scars!
Show me your scars!

This empty room is my companion.
My empty heart gives me compassion.

You gave all I have
And I'll never ask for anything from you.
You gave all I have
And I never wanted more.
You gave all I have
And I'll never ask for anything, anything from you.
You gave all I have
And I never wanted more.

Show me your scars!
Show me your scars!
8. An undesired Reunion (3:24)
Hello, it's been another two years now
Since they've put you away
Seasons come and seasons go
As we cross our paths alone
And I just want you to know..

I hope you disappear again
Words from now a stronger man
Be sure this time you stay away
From all the beauty of today

Oh, how we keep meeting like this
Just like when I was a child
Weeks and months and years go by
As I was waiting here
And you still can't hold yourself together…no

I hope you disappear again
Words from now a stronger man
The thought of running away from you
Something that I've got to do

[I hope you disappear again]

[Guitar Solo + Drums]

The things you put before my eyes
Nothing but the darkest lies

I hope you disappear again
Words from now a stronger man.
9. The Serpent (2:14)
10. I Could Never be Your Lover
11. Eye of the Storm
12. Float like a Feather
13. What is Love?
14. The River Song (4:00)
I watched the sunset
From the east side of the river
When I was alive and I could feel its water
Out of the late evening sky
I pull to this place
Where I could remember
The river's deep brown bleeding eyes

It pulled me in by the ankles
My senses all have left
Then I heard you calling my name
As it asked me to come

Come down to the water baby
Bring all of your lies
Come down and bring everything
That you've got to disguise

I missed the sunrise
In the stillness of the morning
Submerged by the one who
Kept me to these shores
I call to the brightest of angles
To save me from this scene
But he can't reach me in time to save me
The water pulls beneath

Come down to the water baby
Bring all of your lies
Come down and bring everything
That you got to disguise
Come down to the water baby
Bring what you believe
Just be sure you know that this
Is where you cease to be

Come down
15. Sleepless Nights Alone (3:42)
At the end of all the earth
I find you here alone
At the forefront of my heart
And the butterflies
That tried to bring you life
Have died and gone away

Oh we are apart and I am lost
So while she sleeps, she dreams
We spend another sleepless night alone

You're so flirtatious with loneliness
And time just lingers on
We'll never become one
Forgot me, love
I've tried to bring you home
But I've died and gone away

Even if forever never comes
You're the only one
Who makes me come undone
