1. Sweet Sacrifice (3:05)
it's true, we're all a little insane

but it's so clear

now that i'm unchained



fear is only in our minds

taking over all the time

fear is only in our minds

but its taking over all the time



you poor sweet innocent thing

dry your eyes and testify

you know you live to break me- don't deny

sweet sacrifice



one day i'm gonna forget your name

and one sweet day,

you're gonna drown in my lost pain



fear is only in our minds

taking over all the time

fear is only in our minds

but its taking over all the time

you poor sweet innocent thing

dry your eyes and testify

and oh you love to hate me don't you, honey?

i'm your sacrifice.

i dream in darkness

i sleep to die e

raise the silence

erase my life

do you wonder why you hate?

(our burning ashes)

(blacken the day)

are you still too weak

(a world of nothingness)

to survive your mistakes?

(blow me away)

you poor sweet innocent thing

dry your eyes and testify

you know you live to break me- don't deny

sweet sacrifice
2. Call Me When You're Sober (3:34)
Don't cry to me

If you loved me

You would be here with me

You want me

Come find me

Make up your mind















Should've let you fall

And lose it all

So maybe you can remember yourself

Can't keep believing

We're only deceiving ourselves

And I'm sick of the lie

And you're too late



Don't cry to me

If you loved me

You would be here with me

You want me

Come find me

Made up your mind?



Couldn't take the blame

Sick with shame

Must be exhausting to lose your own game

Selfishly hated

No wonder you're jaded

You can't play the victim this time

And you're too late



So don't cry to me

If you loved me

You would be here with me

You want me

Come find me

Made up your mind?



You never call me when you're sober

You only want it 'cause it's over - It's over



How could I have burned paradise?

How could I?

You were never mine!



So don't cry to me

If you loved me

You would be here with me

Don't lie to me

Just get your things

I've made up your mind
3. Weight Of The World (3:37)
feels like the weight of the world

like god in heaven gave me a turn

don't cling to me, i swear i can't fix you

still in the dark, can you fix me?



freefall, freefall, all through life

if you love me, then let go of me

i wont be held down by who i used to be

she's nothing to me



feels like the weight of the world

like all my screaming has gone unheard

and ohm i know you don't believe in me

safe in the dark, how can you see?



freefall, freefall, all through life

if you love me, then let go of me

i wont be held down by who i used to be
4. Lithium (3:44)
Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.
Oh, but God, I want to let it go.
Come to bed, don't make me sleep alone.
Couldn't hide the emptiness, you let it show.
Never wanted it to be so cold.
Just didn't drink enough to say you love me.
I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.
Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.
Don't want to let it lay me down this time.
Drown my will to fly.
Here in the darkness I know myself.
Can't break free until I let it go.
Let me go.
Darling, I forgive you after all.
Anything is better than to be alone.
And in the end I guess I had to fall.
Always find my place among the ashes.
I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.
Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, ...stay in love with my sorrow.
I'm gonna let it go
5. Cloud Nine (4:22)
If you want to live, let live

if you want to go, let go

I'm not afraid to dream- to sleep, sleep forever

I don't need to touch the sky

I just want to feel that high

and you refuse to lift me

guess it wasn't real after all

guess it wasn't real all along

If I fall and all is lost

its where I belong

If you want to live, let live

if you want to go, let go

I'm never gonna be your sweet, sweet surrender

guess it wasn't real after all

guess it wasn't real all along

If I fall and all is lost

no light to lead the way

remember that all alone is where I belong

In a dream

will you give your love to me

beg my broken heart to beat

save my life

change my mind

If I fall and all is lost

no light to lead the way

remember that all alone is where I belong
6. Snow White Queen (4:22)
stoplight lock the door
don't look back
undress in the dark
and hide from you
all of you
You'll never know the way your words have haunted me
I can't believe you'd ask these things of me
you don't know me
You belong to me
my snow white queen
there's nowhere to run, so lets just get it over
soon I know you'll see
you're just like me
don't scream anymore my love, cause all I want is you
Wake up in a dream
frozen fear
all your hands on me
I can't scream
I can't escape the twisted way you think of me
I feel you in my dreams and I don't sleep
You belong to me
my snow white queen
there's nowhere to run, so lets just get it over
soon I know you'll see
you're just like me
don't scream anymore my love, cause all I want is you
I can't save your life
though nothing I bleed for is more tormenting
I'm losing my mind and you just stand there and stare as my world divides
You belong to me
my snow white queen
there's nowhere to run, so lets just get it over
soon I know you'll see
you're just like me
don't scream anymore my love, cause all I want is you
all I want is you
all I want is you
all I want is you
7. Lacrymosa (3:37)
Out on your own

Cold and alone again

Can this be what you really wanted, baby?

Blame it on me

Set your guilt free

Nothing can hold you back now

Now that you're gone

I feel like myself again

Grieving the things I can't repair and willing ...

To let you blame it on me

And set your guilt free

I don't want to hold you back now love

I can't change who I am

Not this time, I wont lie to keep you near me

And in this short life, there's no time to waste on giving up

My love wasn't enough

And you can blame it on me

Just set your guilt free, honey

I don't want to hold you back now love
8. Like You (4:16)
Stay low

soft, dark, and dreamless

far beneath my nightmares and loneliness

I hate me

for breathing without you

I don't want to feel anymore for you

grieving for you

I'm not grieving for you

nothing real love can't undo

and though I may have lost my way

all paths lead straight to you

I long to be like you

lie cold in the ground like you

Halo

blinding wall between us

melt away and leave us alone again

humming, haunted somewhere out there

I believe our love can see us through in death

I long to be like you

lie cold in the ground like you

there's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you

I'm coming for you

You're not alone

no matter what they told you you're not alone

I'll be right beside you forevermore

I long to be like you, sis

lie cold in the ground like you did

there's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you

and as we lay in silent bliss

I know you remember me

I long to be like you

lie cold in the ground like you

there's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you

I'm coming for you
9. Lose Control (4:50)
You don't remember my name

I don't really care

can we play the game your way?

can I really lose control?



just once in my life

I think it'd be nice

just to lose control- just once

with all the pretty flowers

In the dust



Mary had a lamb

his eyes black as coals

if we play very quiet, my lamb

Mary never has to know

just once in my life

I think it'd be nice

just to lose control- just once



if I cut you down to a thing I can use

I fear there will be nothing good left of you
10. The Only One (4:40)
When they all come crashing down- midflight

You know you're not the only one

When they're so alone

they find a back door out of life

You know you're not the only one



We're all grieving

Lost and bleeding

All our lives

We've been waiting

For someone to call our leader

All your lies

I'm not believing

Heaven shine a light down on me

So afraid to open your eyes- hypnotized

You know you're not the only one

Never understood this life

And you're right I don't deserve

but you know I'm not the only one



We're all grieving

Lost and bleeding

All our lives

We've been waiting

For someone to call our leader

All your lies

I'm not believing

Heaven shine a light down on me

Don't look down

Don't look into the eyes of the world beneath you

Don't look down, you'll fall down,

You'll become their sacrifice

Right or wrong

Can't hold onto the fear that I'm lost without you

If I can't feel, I'm not mine,

I'm not real



All our lives

We've been waiting

For someone to call our leader

All your lies

I'm not believing

Heaven shine a light down on me
11. Your Star (4:43)
i can't see your star

i can't see your star

though i patiently waited,

bedside, for the death of today

i can't see your star

the mechanical lights

of lisbon frightened it away

and i'm alone now

me and all i stood for

we're wandering now

all in parts in pieces, swim lonely

find your own way out



i can't see your star

i can't see your star

how can the darkness feel so wrong?

and i'm alone now

me and all i stood for

we're wandering now

all in parts in pieces, swim lonely

find your own way out



so far away

its growing colder without your love

why can't you feel me calling your name?

can't break the silence

its breaking me



all my fears turn to rage



and i'm alone now

me and all i stood for

we're wandering now

all in parts and pieces, swim lonely

find your own way out



nothing why fighting for
12. All That I Am Living For (3:48)
All that I'm living for,
All that I'm dying for,
All that I can't ignore alone at night.

I can feel the night beginning.
Separate me from the living.
Understanding me,
After all I've seen.
Piecing every thought together,
Find the words to make me better.
If I only knew how to pull myself apart.

All that I'm living for,
All that I'm dying for,
All that I can't ignore alone at night.
All that I'm wanted for,
Although I wanted more.
Lock the last open door, my ghosts are gaining on me.

I believe that dreams are sacred.
Take my darkest fears and play them
Like a lullaby,
Like a reason why,
Like a play of my obsessions,
Make me understand the lesson,
So I'll find myself,
So I won't be lost again.

All that I'm living for,
All that I'm dying for,
All that I can't ignore alone at night.
All that I'm wanted for,
Although I wanted more.
Lock the last open door, my ghosts are gaining on me.

Guess I thought I'd have to change the world to make you see me,
To be the one.
I could have run forever,
But how far would I have come
Without mourning your love?

All that I'm living for,
All that I'm dying for,
All that I can't ignore alone at night.
All that I'm wanted for,
Although I wanted more.
Lock the last open door, my ghosts are gaining on me.

Should it hurt to love you?
Should I feel like I do?
Should I lock the last open door,
My ghosts are gaining on me.
