Requiem Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. The Curtain Hits the Cast
The walls come crashing inward
We bleed from an open wound
We feed upon the broken
Saturated with fears
As were stricken by years
Stare idle to lifeless oceans

I won't be defined by failures
Of the hypnotized
Fade into desperation
Cast out and ostracized
The rapture so relentless

[Chorus:]
From the mouths of serpents falling
I watched tomorrow die
All hope is buried in the past

Bleed for the absolution
Desire tears at the will
I can't be forced to empathize with the masses
The son of apathy

I won't be defined by failures
Of the hypnotized
Fade into desperation
Cast out and ostracized
The rapture so relentless

[Chorus]

So look down the end of a barrel
Pray for an escape
Before the curtain hits the cast

Grieve for the death of creation
While you bleed for the depth or your illusion
2. Narcosis
Submit to the numbness of narcotic sleep
It dulls my eyes and dilates under the expanse of grey skies
The dark comes to surface
In my dreams the world burns
Falling like prisms
Turned numb to the pain

Like my father spit on me
Tell me how worthless I am

As daylight filters leaves
She wept so many tears for me
Of desperation

Forgive me father
Forsaken have been left to die

The walking dead surround me
The hubris of our shame
Sleepwalkers and the lemmings of modern day

...and I'm sorry I always pushed you away
Please let me go

Cradled in its grip with a gun up to my head
Stomach aches
Skin is white
I'm always back for more

[Chorus]

You wanted to live
Time lapsed while I couldn't breathe (couldn't breathe)
Inspiration has died (you cannot open my eyes)
...and nothing makes me feel alive
(for years of the torment left covered in shame)
Time lapsed while I couldn't breathe
(cut from your pride, born from your pain)
As we slowly fade away
In the end your all buried to me

If callous hearts collide
Could I re-open the wounds left scarred?
To let those emotions bleed
Of the ghost that's left of me

[Chorus]
3. Venus Mourning
These words drip of deceit
Leaving trails of my convictions
Your words eat me alive
Or merely kill my will to go on

Her sweat
It tastes of contempt
How I hate you for your beauty
Your lips taste of poison
Breathing lies on to your skin

Rip me open
In moments of epiphanies
I won’t condemn you tonight
Nothing I have ever said to you
Could bring me back to your life

So Ill re-collect the lies you whispered
My hearts on fire

So discarded
Thrown to the starving wolves
By the hand of Venus
I should have left you there
Too pretty to waste
Too soft on my lips
Too sweet not to taste

I can’t see it as anything but tragic
Drenched in sorrow
Lighting highway fires
I’m tasting dissonance inside a moment
I'd cut out my heart and bleed without you

All we love will leave us
All that’s gold will rot and wither
As we melt away to nothing
We won’t be remembered

In her eyes are dying embers
So many tears for fading beauty
When my hand was reaching
I could count on her for giving in

Why can’t you just forgive me?

Rip me open
In moments of epiphanies
I won’t condemn you tonight
Nothing I have ever said to you
Could bring me back to your life

As I was the seasons
Changing
The dying leaves fall without you

As I was the seasons
Changing
The dying leaves fall without you
4. Worn Out Wings
Take up the hammer
Strike the iron
Silence is filling you now
No escape for your misdealings

Misery guides the vines that twist and choke inside you
Seize the day
Drop the blade
The end is truth
I'm living proof
I watched my future die

Through all the burned down bridges
Wasted years spent chasing demons

There's nothing left to regret
Not even a fool like you should go on
Fly into the sun
I'll laugh when worn out wings burn

Through all the burned down bridges
Wasted years spent chasing demons

Another burned-out town
Acidic
Dried-out
Starving
Desolation dealt in spades

Kill yourself
Let there be no lies between us
Trephination of the will
Kill myself
Let there be no ties between us
Another chalkline for the till

There's nothing left to regret
Not even a fool like you should go on
Fly into the sun
I'll laugh when worn out wings burn
I haven’t shed a tear
It's been so long through bitter years
Maybe I'm the one who'll die
When worn out wings burn

Temptation baits the addict gene
Familiar places
Empty spaces
Hereditary path of destruction
Coma-white riddled with sickness

Through all the burned down bridges
Wasted years spent chasing demons

Abandon your hope
For no one is listening
Turning a deaf ear to you

Excess of this unfit king I am
To this earth flesh I'll deliver

There's nothing left to regret
Not even a fool like you should go on
Fly into the sun
I'll laugh when worn out wings burn
I haven’t shed a tear
It's been so long through bitter years
Maybe I'm the one who'll die
When worn out wings burn
5. Fixed Like Medication
These pills that kill the pain
As I wander through pitch black corridors
Neck-deep in stagnant fog
To the rhythm of this disease
I’m but a slave to the muse that will kill me

Addiction seeps within my bloodline
The only thing I need is killing me

As the concern passes for me
You’re giving up
Out the door as you said your last goodbye
Fixed by this medicine

Beaten and dragged
Sunk to new lows
Amongst the buzzards, carrion, and crows
She eats my flesh and bleeds me slow
Take me to my solitary gallows

My darkest love
How far we’ve come
Ill let you kill me
Just take away my pain

The concern passes for me
You’re giving up
Out the door as you said your last goodbye

Spiritual failure
Cut from absent concern

Rising like the tides
The flood weighs heavy
In her tears I’m drowning
I knew her masquerade
Yet I dove in anyway
Now I’m sinking in fathoms

Stand amidst the oceans roar
Under tormented skies
A grain of sand
Of a kingdom built on lies

The concern passes for me
You’re giving up
Out the door as you said your last goodbye
As the dirt falls on my grave
Just say goodbye
Turn away
Walk away
You did all that you could

You can’t fix yourself with medication
6. Obsidian Halo
I thank you for the scars
They are the lines that grace my wrists today
Have you come to collect the heart
Of the ghost you left of me?
The purest cloth drapes sinners
Fetid shrove of lifeless need
In my heart she lies embedded
But I know she'll never set me free

Fire burns my blood when I touch you

Your heart bestowed upon me
Now I prayed for a fallen angel
With worn out wings and a vampire's smile
I was sent a broken angel
I'm still alone on this crooked mile

She's beauty and death
Take my last breath
I'd gladly give it away
she's wet on my lips
the scars on my wrists
inflicted by her misery
so I'll speak in fragments
my daily cruicifixtion
you can't hold me anymore

Fire burns my blood when I touch you

Your heart bestowed on me
And you tell me that it's art
And your tears are made of lies
Lies

Hanging from your halo

Fire burns my blood when I touch you

Your heart bestowed on me
You tell me that it's art
And your tears are made of lies
Your heart bestowed on me
Your heart bestowed on me
You tell me that it's art
And your tears are made of lies

Hanging from your obsidian halo
The problem with the dead
They always come back again
Coking on your obsidian halo
Save your screams for savior scenes
7. Light of Day
8. Requiem
I'm searching for the answers
None are written in the sky
Through all the hurt and pain of my life
All I ever felt like

I was dying for a reason
Yet the darkness left me blind
Rotting with the passing seasons
These times they uncertain us

Tyrant of the individual
Beckoned by the lepers smile
We torn our eyes to an eternal sky

My wounds were covered up by pride
yet time always wins
I fear the emptiness
The misery haunts me
I remember holding on to anything you gave
Once again, made a liar
Twisting the knife in my heart
Your choking my breath
Defend unto me

(solo)

Old man
Weak and frail
Dying under newborn skies
They'll sing your requiem
Legacy of wasted time

I remember hate in your eyes
Your choking my breath
Wounds cover my pride
Filling my emptiness
Misery haunts me
You fail me
Final Requiem

My wounds were covered up by pride
yet time always wins
I fear the emptiness
The misery haunts me
I remember holding on to anything you gave
Once again, made a liar
Twisting the knife in my heart
Your choking my breath
Defend unto me
9. Bleed Together
For all the promises I broke to you
I can't collect the pieces
...and I don't want you to see me again
I could dream you never left before

Your next to me but far away
In the crossing of these paths of sorrow
...and I'm a little less than broken

This time will be forever (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you cannot die
Our wounds will bleed together (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you cannot die

So won't you write me letters
On your tattered dreams
I'd catch every tear that you ever shed for me
I'm dying
Trapped inside a moment

This time will be forever (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you cannot die
Our wounds will bleed together (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you can not die

Can not die
Can not die
Can not die

(solo)

This time will be forever (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you cannot die
Our wounds will bleed together (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you can not die

This time will be forever (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you cannot die
Our wounds will bleed together (I'm falling down)
This time we'll be together
My love for you can not die
10. Smut Queen
Not a vestige remains
Of the naive, misled girl
This place will claim your soul
Spit in your mouth
Bind and gag you

It's easy to lose your mind
Then blame it on apathy
(Denial fits you well)
The medication that you pray for
Leads back to your misery

From the cradle of emotional wounds
To the floor of physical scars
You fuck the liars who deliver nothing
Yet promise you the stars
I'll pray for endless fires for endless days
Burn this fucking place away
Burn the corpses and spit on the ashes
Of a faded memory
From perfect skin to ashen gray

There is an art to the pain of your life
With every tear that falls
It's a part of you that will forever die

It's easy to lose your mind
Then blame it on apathy
(Denial fits you well)
The medication that you pray for
Leads back to your misery

Is it worth the sin?
Does it relieve the pain?
On your knees again
Queen of the charlatans

Xanex and a loaded gun
Smut queen- watch you run
They’ll shed no tears for you
They’ll watch you die unloved

Search for the missing pieces
Cut away by those you trusted

There is an art to the pain of your life
With every tear that falls
It's a part of you that will forever die

It's easy to lose your mind
Then blame it on apathy
(Denial fits you well)
The medication that you pray for
Leads back to your misery
Now you’re immortalized
Queen of the gutter
Relinquish yourself from live
To spite the ones that suffer
11. Portrait
She’s draped across the bathtub
Or lying on the floor
So cold her pale white skin
Ill touch her to be sure
Blind redemption

The words were draped in broken embers
Regret is all that I have

I can't seem to sleep
Without her face
The lines under my eyes
Foretell my sleepless nights
Why am I holding on?
Denial of frail wrists

The words were draped in broken embers
Regret is all that I have
I need you to paint this portrait in my mind
To take away my pain

...and she’s pure and silent

Crawl back into the womb
Premortal emancipation
The scars ripped across her neck
Mimic the holes of trephination
Throw her back

The words were draped in broken embers
Regret is all that I have
I need you to paint this portrait
