Bury Me Alive

Theres no use in crying All my tears wont drown my pain Free me from your sorrow

I

can’t grieve you again

I

watched you let yourself die

And now it’s too late to save you this time

You bury me alive Everybody’s gotta breathe somehow Don’t leave me die Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

All I did was love you

Now I hate the nightmare you’ve become

I

can’t let you fool me

I

won’t need you again

I

watched you let yourself die

And now it’s too late to save you this time

You bury me alive Everybody’s gotta breathe somehow Don’t leave me die Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

Make me feel this love we used to hold All I see is black and cold As I try to pull you down Into the ground

Everybody’s gotta breathe somehow Don’t leave me die You’re too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

You bury me alive Everybody’s gotta breathe somehow Don’t leave me die Too consumed by your own emptiness and lies

 

Burn

I

can feel your fingers

When i close my eyes Take your poison love inside

I

fall into dreaming

I’ve been waiting for your touch to bring me home

Sleeping death will come and lead me out of the sunlight

Shadows pulling me to lie with you When the moonlight sings The darkness brings me back to die with you

I’d give it all away to be with you My hearts waiting and breaking to return To burn with you tonight

Hating all I am when lying by your side Taking everything of me

To leave only nothing I hold secrets only dreaming eyes can see Night time sanctuary seeks The pain of the living

Shadows pulling me to lie with you When the moonlight sings The darkness brings me back to die with you I’d give it all away to be with you My hearts waiting and breaking to return

To burn with you tonight

Lay down your life

Only for you Forsake the light All I see is you Forever night Live just to die for you

Shadows pulling me to lie with you When the moonlight sings The darkness brings me back to die with you I’d give it all away to be with you My hearts waiting and breaking to return To burn with you tonight

PArAdigM

Falling to my knees before you

So ashamed to see my weakness fill your eyes

Needlessly I let myself stray before you Now I face the consequence of my betrayal

My paradigm My sweet love I breath It’s you I rely on Shelter me from cold I’m dying paradigm

Do we sacrifice, let our story die

Blissful lullabies return again

Let me stay a while, let love survive

Delicately crawling to your grace

My paradigm My sweet love I breath It’s you I rely on Shelter me from cold I’m dying paradigm

Perfect sky Shadowed by my lies

Good enough but always wanting more

I

replaced all your love with pain

So afraid to face the world alone

My paradigm My sweet love I breath

My paradigm My sweet love I breath It’s you I rely on Shelter me from cold I’m dying paradigm

dont leAve Me Behind

It won’t go away These aching memories still dance around me

Spilling over everything with beauty

I

see your face in everything before me

Your voice is haunting me

I

belong with you now

Oh please give into me And stay forever Oh don’t leave me behind

So afraid of dreaming The story is repeating

Screaming, monsters and bleeding

I’m loosing light in myself Come back into me Cause only you can save me

I

belong with you now

Oh please give into me And stay forever Oh don’t leave me behind

I

belong with you now

Oh please give into me

And stay forever Oh don’t leave me behind

SleeP Well My Angel

Watching you sleep for so long Knowing that I can’t turn the rain into sun anymore I’ve given you all that I am Now I stand here too scared to hold your hand Afraid you might wake to see The monster that had to leave

Cause you see the shelter as the storm Holding wind to keep you warm You were everything to me

This is why I have to leave So sleep well my angel

Under the ash and the lies

Something beautiful once here now dies And the tears burn my eyes As you sit there all alone

I

just wanna come home

But you see the shelter as the storm Holding wind to keep you warm You were everything to me This is why I have to leave So sleep well my angel Sleep well my angel

I’m sorry

I’m sorry

I’m sorry

I’m sorry

You see the shelter as the storm Holding wind to keep you warm You were everything to me This is why You see the shelter as the storm Holding wind to keep you warm You were everything to me This is why I have to leave So sleep well my angel Sleep well my angel

through hell

Are we alone Is there more then we believe in Haunting these walls

Shadows crawling out reveling

Fear in me Stays in me

The nightmares inside here My dark fears all in my head again

The nightmares I fight here

All my tears pull me through hell again

I

wake in the night

And I pray that i’ve been dreaming

Theres nowhere to hide From this nightmare calling to me

Fear in me Stays in me

The nightmares inside here

My dark fears all in my head again

The nightmares I fight here

All my tears pull me through hell again

Oh I let you go to feel the light outside Oh I without you I just feel

  • I just feel so alive

I can define where the well ran dry

  • I remember every tear I cried

Memories of lies, wasted all this time

Now we’ve lost it all

The nightmares inside here My dark fears all in my head again

Oh I let you go to feel the light outside

The nightmares I fight here

Oh I without you I just feel so alive

All my tears pull me through hell again

There must be more to life

The nightmares inside here My dark fears all in my head again

Then I just left behind Oh I without you I just feel

The nightmares I fight here

  • I just feel so alive

All my tears pull me through hell again

 
  • I step into the sunlight

Fueled by rage and delight Theres no place for weakness

  • i Will StAy

I’ll forget your sweet kiss

Tonight I’m without you The raindrops are falling With candle light burning For you I’ll be waiting here

Oh I let you go to feel the light outside Oh I without you i just feel so alive There must be more to life

  • I just feel so alive

If all of our days have no more light And all of our dreams are lost tonight

Then I just left behind Oh I without you I just feel

The stars can all fall and everything turn to grey

  • I will stay

Graceful and loving Beautiful and soothing Can’t breath without you There’s no life without you here

If all of our days have no more light And all of our dreams are lost tonight

The stars can all fall and everything turn to grey

  • I will stay

If all of our days have no more light

And all of our dreams are lost tonight The stars can all fall and everything turn to grey If all of our days have turned to night And all of our dreams are lost and lies The stars can all fall and everything turn to grey

  • I will stay

Without you

Do you see me, I stand before your eyes Here in pieces, let me in your mind When did love fade, why are we at war Where did we fall, where did we go wrong

Have we lost it all

St John

This night is alive with the smell of insane It’s reaching for me and it’s calling my name

  • I beg for silence to drown out their weep

How did this asylum become where I sleep

So ashamed of waking All my life you failed to keep me safe

My whole world’s forsaken Won’t let you destroy my faith again

All my questions get no answers Locked up tight from the world outside me Mommy come get me out tonight All my questions have no answers

  • I can feel the fear inside me

Mommy come get me out tonight

So close i almost could taste my own grave

My moment of selfishness caused by your pain

Almost threw this life you gave me away

In this institution for you now I pray

So ashamed of waking All my life you failed to keep me safe My whole world’s forsaken

Won’t let you destroy my faith again All my questions get no answers

Locked up tight from the world outside me

Mommy come get me out tonight All my questions have no answers

Ever after never came And I’m still waiting for my heart to beat again

And all the dreams I’ve laid to rest Are ghosts that keep me

I

can feel the fear inside me

After all that I’ve become

Mommy come get me out tonight

  • I am only one

  • I am only one

Forgive me With wings adorn me

  • I am only one

So I can fly

All my questions get no answers

teAr the World doWn

Locked up tight from the world outside me

  • I fold another day

Mommy come get me out tonight

Lose another chance to break away

All my questions have no answer

From all I cannot bare

I

can feel the fear inside me

  • I suffer through the shame

Mommy come get me out tonight

Wishing hope would just abandon me

Till this is over

i

AM only one

My loveless light

Time and time again

Memories fade into the silence Haunting me tonight With hopes last breath I take this moment in It will be the last

I’m lost in you tonight Waiting for you to turn around Only to tear the whole world down

  • I take it all and take the fall for you Fear is all I hold

That morning breaks And sunlight takes the pain away

Ever after never came And I’m still waiting for a life that never was And all the dreams I lay to rest

Are ghosts that keep me After all that I’ve become

Bound and beaten down All the pain I can’t escape today Is always with me

My loveless light I’m lost in you tonight Waiting for you to turn around

I

am only one

Only to tear the whole world down My darkest night

close my eyes and bleed this empty heart Of all that longs to die

I

Your arms that hold me tight Waiting for you to turn around

When faces lie and love will falter I’m left with only time

Only to tear the whole world down

And time will break The dreams that take the pain away

All my love is lost All my hope is gone All my love is lost All my hope is gone

Ever after never came And I’m still waiting for a love I’ll never have And all the dreams I lay to rest Are ghosts that keep me After all that I’ve become

My loveless light I’m lost in you tonight Waiting for you to turn around Only to tear the whole world down

I

am only one

My darkest night

I’ll tear the world down

I’m on my own here And no ones left to be the hero of This fairy tale gone wrong As night will fall my heart will die alone

Your arms that hold me tight Waiting for you to turn around Only to tear the whole world down
