It gives me strength to have somebody to fight for; I can never fight for myself, but, for others, I can kill.

I only sleep with people I love, which is why I have insomnia.

I still own my heart, which I know because it hurts so much.

Perfume was first created to mask the stench of foul and offensive odors...
Spices and and bold flavorings were created to mask the taste of putrid and rotting meat...
What then was music created for?
Was it to drown out the voices of others, or the voices within ourselves?
I think I know.

And falling's just another way to fly.

I'm not stupid. I know exactly what's going on, and I'm not fighting it. If I have to go through this, I will glean from it any small benefit I can receive. I will not fight this. Bring it on. Bring on the cure. Bring on the fucking happy. I'm committed.

Awareness is the enemy of sanity, for once you hear the screaming, it never stops.

Here you sit in your high-backed chair
Wonder how the view is from there
I wouldn’t know ’cause I like to sit
Upon the floor, yeah upon the floor
If you like we could play a game
Let’s pretend that we are the same
But you will have to look much closer
Than you do, closer than you do
And I’m far too tired to stay here anymore
And I don’t care what you think anyway
‘Cause I think you were wrong about me
Yeah what if you were, what if you were
And what if I’m a snowstorm burning
What if I’m a world unturning
What if I’m an ocean, far too shallow, much too deep
What if I’m the kindest demon
Something you may not believe in
What if I’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep

I know you’ve got it figured out
Tell me what I am all about
And I just might learn a thing or two
Hundred about you, maybe about you
I’m the end of your telescope
I don’t change just to suit your vision

Thank god I’m pretty
The occasional free drink I never asked for
The occasional admission to a seedy little bar
Invitation to a stranger’s car
I’m blessed
With the ability to render grown men tongue-tied
Which only means that when it’s dark outside
I have to run and hide
Can’t look behind me
Thank god I’m pretty

Thank god I’m pretty
Every skill I ever have will be in question
Every ill that I must suffer
Clearly brought on by myself
Though the cops would come for someone else
I’m blessed
I’m truly privileged to look this good without clothes on
Which only means that when I sing you’re jerking off
And when I’m gone you won’t remember
Thank god I’m pretty

Thank you god
Oh lord
Thank you god

And when a gaggle of faces appears around me
It’s lucky I hate to be taken seriously
I think my ego would fall right through the cracks in the floor

I’ll tell the truth: all of my songs
Are pretty much the fucking same
I’m not a faerie but I need
More than this life so I became
This creature representing more to you
Than just another girl
And if I had a chance to change my mind
I wouldn’t for the world
Twenty years
Sinking slowly
Can I trust you
But I don’t want to

I will swallow
If it will help my sea level go down
But I’ll come back to haunt you if I drown
I will swallow
If it will help my sea level go down
I’ll take a deep deep breath
But I’ll come back to haunt you if I drown

I don’t want to be a legend
Oh well that’s a god damned lie – I do
To say I do this for the people
I admit is hardly true
You tell me everything’s all right
As though it’s something you’ve been through
You think this torment is romantic
Well it’s not except to you
Twenty years
Sinking slowly

She’s locked up with a spinning wheel
She can’t recall what it was like to feel
She says “This room’s gonna be my grave
And there’s no one who can save me”
She sits down to her colored thread
She knows lovers waking up in their beds
She says “How long can I live this way
Is there someone I can pay to let me go
‘Cause I’m half sick of shadows
I want to see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the sun goes down
So why can’t I

Chorus:
And it’s raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it’s cold
I’ve been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it’s here
And it’s here for I’ve been told
That I’ll die before I’m old
And the wind I know it’s cold”

She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a handsome horse and rider pass
She says “That man’s gonna be my death
‘Cause he’s all I ever wanted in my life

I’ll take my hope where I can find it
Seems I find it here in you
Hang your curtain get behind it
I won’t even ask for proof
Go ahead and read my fortune
Cast your dice, divine my fate
I just want to know I have one
Tell me that it’s not too late for

Chorus:
A little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can just erase
‘Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
I can do without a book I’ll never read
Second hand faith is all I need

I will pay you for your trouble
I will pay you for your time
Steal my wallet charge me double
All I’ve come for is a sign
Is there someone who can help me
Up above the clouds I see
Sitting in a Chinese restaurant
Someone comes to offer me

Chorus

‘Cause this feeling of forgiveness means much more to me
Than that paper on the wall that cost you all of ten bucks
If an ancient word, a heathen spell can salvage me

How do I save you from a fate so sweet
As being torn to pieces by a loving hand
How do I save you from a voice so soft
As that which acquiesces to your each demand
How do I look upon the eyes I love
And send them down this path, I know it isn’t right
How do I make you realize my love
That there is more to fear than strangers in the night

Chorus:
How do I save you
How do I set you free
Behind the curtain waits a darker world
If I can’t make you leave
How can I save you from me

I think you’ve had enough experience
To differentiate between a heart of gold
And what you cradle in your gentle arms
Can you not recognize a soul already sold
How do I save you from the things I’ve been
I can’t deny the past, it’s written on my face
How do I save you from the mess you’re in
When I can’t make you leave this torturous embrace

Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
I will marry at thy will sire
At thy will

A thousand years gone by
Too late to wonder why
I’m here alone
If in my darkest hour
She rose that fell a flower
I should have known
Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you can capture me

Chorus:
Tell me no more stories
And I’ll tell you no lies
No one wants to hurt me
But everybody tries
And if you think that I’ve been waiting
For my planets to align
It’s time you go on
Get your things, get up, get out
I’m doing fine, yeah yeah

Someday these walls will speak
The floors beneath you creak
To call my name
Here in my web of dreams
My whispers turn to screams
And place the blame
Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you discover me

Chorus

For this freedom

Like a dream I had
In subconscious deep
Here you come again
Only in my sleep
And I remember you
I remember you
Like a memory
of a time gone by
Many things I’ve seen
Still I can’t deny
That I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

Chorus:
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you whisper in my ear the things
That only you could understand
When you say my name
When you hold my hand
When you touch me softly in the way
That only you can do
I remember you
I remember you

Every other touch
Runs as cold as ice
If I get too close
I may pay the price
But I remember you
Yes I remember the things you do to me

Chorus

I would recognize your shadow in a crowded room
Change your name a million times
It wouldn’t change my mind
Or what I hope to find
In your heart underneath

In a courtyard
Used to sing as loud as she could
Locked away here
She’s been quiet, lovely and good
But no one listens now
She lost her voice
She had no choice

Chorus:
If you sing loud and clear
Someone passing by will surely hear you
No you can’t be afraid
If you ever want somebody near you
If you sing loud and clear
Someone passing by will surely hear you
No you can’t be afraid

Tore the curtain
Put her hand outside of the frame
Let her hair down
Sat all day and nobody came
But when the sun went down
The stars came out
She heard them shout

Chorus

But when the sun went down
The stars came out
She heard them shout

I’m your Opheliac
I’ve been so disillusioned
I know you’d take me back
But still I feign confusion
I couldn’t be your friend
My world was too unstable
You might have seen the end

But you were never able
To keep me breathing
As the water rises up again
Before I slip away

You know the games I play
And the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell
When you’ve gone through hell
And I say I can’t stay
You know how hard it can be
To keep believing in me
When everything and everyone
Becomes my enemy and when
There’s nothing more you can do
I’m gonna blame it on you
It’s not the way I want to be
I only hope that in the end you will see
It’s the Opheliac in me

I’m your Opheliac
My stockings prove my virtues
I’m open to attack
But I don’t want to hurt you
Whether I swim or sink

It’s a sunny day in heaven
And no one is around
To open the gates
And I’m waiting for you
My fairweather friend
Absent in the end
Absent in the end
The one thing I can count on
Is nothing much at all
The one thing that I’m sure about
Is that you won’t be anywhere around me when I fall
I’d like to think I wouldn’t die for you, but you know I would
‘Cause that’s the fool I am
And that’s the rule you bend
Absent in the end

Miss Lucy had some leeches
Her leeches liked to suck
And when they drank up all her blood
She didn’t give a

Had locked her in her cell
Miss Lucy screamed all night that they

Hello to the surgeon
With scalpel old and blunt

The lunatics arrive

It’s not the time

I’m just another pretty face
So don’t come any closer
You’re not the first
You’re not the last
How many more?
Don’t even ask
You’re one more dead composer

Do I need you?
Yes and no
Do I want you?
Maybe so
You’re getting warm

You’re getting warmer oh
Did you plan this all along
Did you care if it was wrong
Who’s getting warmer now
That I’m gone

Misery loves company
And company loves more
More loves everybody else
But hell is others

I’m not for you
You’re not for me
I’ll kill you first
You wait and see
You devil undercover
You’re not a prince
You’re not a friend
You’re just a child
And in the end
You’re one more selfish lover

Marry me, he said, through his rotten teeth, bad breath, and then
Marry me instead of that strapping young goatherd, but when
I was in his bed, and my father had sold me
I knew I hadn’t any choice, hushed my voice, did what any girl would do and
When I’m beheaded at least I was wedded
And when I am buried at least I was married
I’ll hide my behavior with wine as my savior

But, oh, what beautiful things I’ll wear
What beautiful dresses and hair
I’m lucky to share his bed
Especially since I’ll soon be dead

Marry me, he said, god, he’s ugly, but fortune is ours
Running in the gardens enjoying men, women, and flowers
Then I break a glass and I slit my own innermost thigh
So that I can pretend that I’m menstru…well, unavailable
My life is arranged but this union’s deranged
So I’ll fuck who I choose for I’ve nothing to lose
And when master’s displeased I’ll be down on my knees again

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they’ve done to you?
Wouldn’t they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?
How did your father die?
Was he a good man?
Maybe someday you’ll know

The beginning and the end
Much closer than they seem
Death is but a dream, I know
Dolls were meant to throw away
All broken and bent from petty play
My friend in this world
Is a bottle of nothing
Still I fly
Still I fall

Mad girl
Can you believe
What they’ve done to you?
Wouldn’t they stop
When you asked them to leave you alone
In all your faerie tales
How did the prince say he loved you?

Folly, fear and hate, I know

I want to hold you to the sun
I want to be your faithful one
I want to show you all the beauty
You don’t even know you hold
I’m hurting you for your own good
I’d die for you – you know I would
I’d give up all my wealth
To buy you back the soul you never sold
I want to mix our blood
And put it in the ground
So you can never leave
I want to earn your trust
Your faith your heart
You’ll never be deceived

Liar Liar Liar Liar

I want to heal you pretty sweet
I’ll throw rose petals at your feet
I’ll spend eternity
Comparing all my poetry to yours
I want to see love through your eyes
You’ll never have to compromise
I’ll give up all my fame
To fight your demons and your bloody wars
I want to mix our blood
And put it in the ground
So you can never leave
I want to earn your trust
Your faith your heart

Turning tricks with absent guile
Reeling in your crooked smile
Why did I turn to you?

Lose my mind in another fight

I only gave you a chance to prove the rumors true
And now I’m paying with my

So let the record show

In your coldest blood
With your own two hands

Working life like a burlesque show
Get them off and they’ll let you go
Why did I turn to you?
I only turned out to be just one more girl you slew
And now I’ll bump my grind through another
Lose my mind in another

You’re in my stars you know
Don’t need no crystal ball to tell me so
Whispering in the air
Hoping that my words find you somewhere
Even when I close my eyes
I’ll never recreate the time that flies
The consequence is hanging there
The sky will fall but I don’t care

Chorus:
Meet me beneath my balcony and say
No one but you could ever fill my night
Be the sunlight in my every day
Underneath my balcony I’ll say
No one but you could ever fill my night
Be the sunlight in my every day

Your love is haunting me
And all I want is more to set me free
Whispering in the air
Hoping that my words find you somewhere
Do you hear me call your name
I know we will never be the same
The consequence is hanging there
The sky will fall but I don’t care

In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake

Take those steps down
Come to the waterside
Drown and hide
How many bodies are buried beneath those rocks
I told you there was one
And now you know whose it is
Mine mine mine

Behind your house

I want my innocence back
And if you can’t give it to me
I will cut you down
And I will run you through
With the dagger you sharpened
On my body and soul
Before you slit me in two
And then devoured me whole

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back

I want my innocence back
And if you can’t pacify me
I will break your bones
You think I’m bluffing, just try me
I will never forget
The words you used to ensnare me
Till my dying day
You’ll suffer for this, I swear (I swear)

I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back

And I demand
You put my heart back in my hand
And wipe it clean
From the mess you made of me
And I require
You make me free from this desire
And when you leave, I’d better be the innocent

I know
The sickening thoughts that slither around your head
I know
The gluttonous guilt that buried me in your bed
Manipulate me if you can
Go on and fool me like your biggest fan

I know
The arrogant pride that poisons the truth you hear
I know
The bigoted tongue that tears away all your fear
Pontificate you faded star
Go on and show me who you really are

You can lie to the papers
You can hide from the press
You can fake it on stage
You can crawl from your cage
You can search and destroy
You can kill and depend on it
I know your tainted flesh
I know your filthy soul
I know each trick you played
Whore you laid
Dream you stole
I know the bed in the room in the wall
In the house where you got what you wanted and ruined it all
I know the secrets that you keep
I know where you sleep

I know
The illness behind the image you create

When you are sleeping do you dream of me
How strange, how strange
‘Cause you know what they say
About the visions in your head and what they mean
How strange, how strange
That you should feel that way
I’m not living in an ordinary world
‘Cause I’m not your ordinary good girl
And I don’t believe in playing like I know that game
You’re not heading for an ordinary love
‘Cause I’m not the one that you should think of
And I’m not a prize that you can claim

Chorus:
You know I think it’s strange
Just a little bit deranged
That you think I’m gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you dream
How strange

I’m more than happy in my candlelight

I heard a story
It’s too hard to mention
I heard a thing once
I can’t even say
I had a moment
Of doubtful suspension
But it’s almost forgotten
It’s been pulled away

Chorus:
By too many hands
Touching where I stand
And I can’t fall
Because you’ll try and catch me
Never let me go
You don’t think I know
I’ve heard it all
And so you’ll never scratch my skin

I heard a boy say
It’s all my invention
A fictional statement
It’s all in my head
All I can tell you
My only pretension
Was in thinking you listened
To me when I said

I’ve heard your paltering and your lies
And it won’t go away when I close my eyes

When you shut your mouth tell me what you hear

How old are you?
I’m older than you’ll ever be
I’ve been dead a thousand years
And lived only two or three
I don’t mind telling you
My life was ended by your hand
The kind of murder where nobody dies
But I don’t suppose you’d understand
Call off the search
We’ve found her

If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won’t arrest you
The world won’t detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn’t do
I’m Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I’m not even legal
I’m just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it’s my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita

Thank you, kind sirs
You’ve made me what I am today
A bundle of broken nerves
A mouthful of words I’m still afraid to say

Any I don’t know why he’s

Won’t you lend me your protection and help me

God help me

Won’t you lend me your protection and help me

For the tide to come in
So the truth can come out
And if I had a dollar for every time
I repented the sin
And commit the same crime
I’d be sitting on top of the world today
I’d be sitting on top of the world today

God help me
And just maybe
I’ll learn to help myself
Speak to me
Don’t leave me
He’s burning me
Won’t you shine in my direction and help me
Won’t you lend me your protection and help me

Once upon a time I thought
“What’s the one thing I haven’t got?”
There’s not a single thing in this world I couldn’t buy
That’s when a gentleman caught my eye

Once or twice we went around
But now I’ll tell you the thing I’ve found
You shouldn’t make your move until you know the price
Because gentlemen aren’t nice

Just because I won’t agree to take his arm
And I occasionally forget his name
He likes to call inclemency what I call charm
But I know they’re all the same

I think I’ve realized my first mistake
When he cried that his heart would break
I would have thought that I was worth the sacrifice
But gentlemen aren’t nice

Just because I leave him all alone for days

He dares complain about my evil ways
And drive me out of my — out of my mind

What I relate is hard to bear
I only endure it so that I might spare you ladies

You say you’re curious
Can’t leave a thing to your imagination
I wish you’d close your eyes
But oh you seem so serious
I should enjoy the sweet interrogation
You start to hypnotize me
I should know by telling you
I’m flattered by your interest
Who am I talking to?
Could be the demon with a mask
Why should I trust in you?
I don’t feel safe
I never did
But what else can I do
But what you ask?

Chorus:
Think of your darkest night
Think of your soul alone
If you can bear the sight
Think of the love you’ll never know
Yes, it’s unusual
To live your life this way
All I can say
Maybe that’s why you don’t see
Faces like mine every day

You’d like to stir it up
Just like a sight forgotten ’til remembered
I didn’t ask for this
But still you hold me in your gaze
And from my lips
The moments I have captured

I’ve been racing for you honey
But you take your love
From under my feet
The very moment I arrive
I hold the invitation in my hand
You smile and I don’t understand
When you tell me the writing ain’t yours
You were the one thing I could count on
Even if your apathy was what I expected
Oh darling I waited and waited to feel your footsteps
And to hear your breath
But maybe I just wanted someone to wait for

Chorus:
You were ever in my mind
You were behind my soul each time
I held it to the flame
You were ever in my precious thoughts
I’d leave a room of angels
Just to be alone
If only to say your name
I never told you I needed you darling
Like a rose needs the rain
How could you possibly know how much
So I reach for your love
Like the moon and the stars
Ever in my sight
Ever out of touch

There’s a spotlight of a holy kind

Here you sit in your high-backed chair
Wonder how the view is from there
I wouldn’t know ’cause I like to sit
Upon the floor, yeah upon the floor
If you like we could play a game
Let’s pretend that we are the same
But you will have to look much closer
Than you do, closer than you do
And I’m far too tired to stay here anymore
And I don’t care what you think anyway
‘Cause I think you were wrong about me
Yeah what if you were, what if you were
And what if I’m a snowstorm burning
What if I’m a world unturning
What if I’m an ocean, far too shallow, much too deep
What if I’m the kindest demon
Something you may not believe in
What if I’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep

I know you’ve got it figured out
Tell me what I am all about
And I just might learn a thing or two
Hundred about you, maybe about you
I’m the end of your telescope
I don’t change just to suit your vision

The sun goes down the same as it did before
The roses die as their petals fall to the floor
The opera was always an awful bore
So don’t blame me

Your poetry was never in vast supply
So if you’re less than inspired, I wouldn’t cry
Your broken heart is hardly the reason why
So don’t blame me

You weren’t as good at dancing as you evidently thought
You swear that you were charming once, I promise you were not
So if you’re treated badly now, I’d scarcely be surprised
You’re seen for what you really are, it’s time you realized
If you feel you’re finally going gray
You were a long time ago, that should make your day
Your dog was never your best friend anyway
So don’t blame me

You’ve never thought of anything original before
So why should you be startled if you can’t think anymore
And getting out of bed is now a challenge on its own
And eating’s even harder, I don’t care, leave me alone

Dead is the new alive
Despair’s the new survival
A pointless point of view
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

Dead is the new alive
Life’s only living rival
A casket built for two
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

So take me now or take me never
I won’t wait
You’re already late
So say goodbye or say forever
Choose your fate
How else can we survive?
Dead is the new alive

Dead is the new alive
A gothic play revival
The last act of the show
Give in, give in, give in, give in
You play the game
You never win

So say goodbye or say forever

Show your face
Don’t hide
Take off the mask now
Underneath is a deep dark secret
Take me for a ride
Upon your white horse
Take your love
‘Cause I don’t want to keep it
I am out of place
And honey you are out of time
I’d tell your fortune
But the words don’t rhyme

Chorus:
I’m not your chambermaid
You’re not my lord
All the fine games we played
Have left me bored
I never want to see you come around my castle
‘Cause I just can’t afford to love you
I’m not your chambermaid
You’re not my lord

Tell me what I have to do to make you
Understand it’s a lost cause lover
Tell me while you’re at it how it feels to
Hold me close when you’ve been thinking of her
I don’t want to hear you say you love me
You’ve been gone such a long time
Won’t you turn around
Before I have to see this
Face I once adored
Don’t you see

You can see that I swim
Through the sea of painful
You have watched as I pull
Myself from the floor
And you were there when I
Built my tower like pebbles in the rain
Trying to balance all that I had left
With what I didn’t have anymore

Chorus:
But would you tear my castle down
Stone by stone
And let the wind run through my windows
‘Til there is nothing left but a battered rose
Would you tear my castle down
Stone by stone
And let the wind run through my windows
‘Til there is nothing left but a battered rose

You seem so devoted
Your love is unconditional
You were self-promoted
I never asked you
You were my everything
My apparitional faith
Where are you when I am screaming to my God
What am I coming to

If I had another place to go
Would you break me, is it that you know
I have no choice but to rebuild again

“Days of old,” I tell my restless mind
Searching mountains, fields, and meadows green
What is it my heart can hope to find
All I long for I have never seen
Tales of glory written in the dust
Tapestries of deepest purple gold
Legends carved in stone tell me I must
Journey through the mist and bitter cold
Seeking in the corners of the earth
My companions I have never known
Blindly running forth, is honor worth
Endless hours of silence spent alone?

Chorus:
But in this brotherhood I still believe
And for the ones we’ve lost my soul will grieve
Yet through the world alone I wander for I know somewhere
I will find my brothers, by the sword I swear

In my memory awakening
Like a dream too sweet to cast away
Shadows of the past begin to sing
Calling out to me in their gallant way
Come away with us brother in arms
Through the seas of silver, fields of gold

Be silent, be still
Don’t make me chase you
I’ll warn you, I will
Just to embrace you
I’ll get my fill
So be silent, be still

Be hopeful, be brave
I only want you more
When you misbehave
I know I’ve said that before
It’s your touch I crave
So be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

Be careful, my dear
If you’re not nice
I’ll give you reason to fear
But I’ll think twice
Don’t pretend you don’t hear
Just be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

I’d rather tie you up

The art of suicide
Nightgowns and hair
Curls flying every which where
The pain too pure to hide
Bridges of Sighs
Meant to conceal lover’s lies
Under the arches
Of moonlight and sky
Suddenly easy
To contemplate why
Why…

Why live a life
That’s painted with pity
And sadness and strife
Why dream a dream
That’s tainted with trouble
And less than it seems
Why bother bothering
Just for a poem
Or another sad song to sing
Why live a life
Why live a life

The art of suicide
Pretty and clean
Conveys a theatrical scene
“Alas, I’m gone!” she cried
Ankles displayed
Melodramatically laid
Under the arches
Of moonlight and sky
Suddenly easy
To contemplate why
Why…

Why live a life
That’s painted with pity
And sadness and strife
Why dream a dream
That’s tainted with trouble

What is your substance, whereof are you made,
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?
Since every one, hath every one, one shade,
And you but one, can every shadow lend.

See beyond the moment
Think beyond the day
Hear the word
My voice will not be cast away
Fatalistic fortune
Ever near the end
Love goes on
But time does not return again

Chorus:
Across the sky
I will come for you
If you ask me to
Demystify
Your uncommon dreams
Stranger things have come true

Fear no more the midnight
Fear no more the sea
Close your eyes, regret nothing
You’re safe with me
Look into the shadows
Step into the mist
Search your land but doubt never
I still exist

Chorus

Ask yourself: is this all there is?
Take no answer but the one you find
I have put my faith in aberrations of your kind

Never let me sleep
I close my eyes and pray
For the garish light of day
Like a frightened child I run
From the sleep that never comes

Out of bed I creep
To climb this tower of shame
But the hour’s still the same
Only madness knows my name
At 4 o’Clock

To climb this tower of shame
But the hour’s still the same
Only madness knows my name

Whose is the voice ringing in my head?
Where is the sense in these desperate dreams?
Why should I wake when I’m half past dead?

Sure as the clock keeps its steady chime

Three hundred and six
In only six years
If it was an accident
Where are the tears
I am still unidentified
Behind the cathedral
Is where my body hides
But I’m not inside
Just one of sixteen
In only one day
If it was a game
Then why couldn’t I play
I am the abandoner
But still I remain
And my frozen pulse quickens
As the black plot thickens

Like this story I heard
A lifetime ago
Where a girl
(And this is funny)
Took her life
But what she doesn’t know
Is how long it takes
For the water to rise
And the breath to stop fighting
And the cold to close her eyes

Morality plays
On stages of sin
The easy way out
Or the easy way in
I am still overglorified
My reasons to live
Were my reasons to die
But at least they were mine
Now I’ve freedom unbound
Cut the laces of life
The pistol

Did you know sometimes it frightens me
when you say my name and I can't see you
will you ever learn to materialize before you speak
impetuous boy, if that's what you really are
how many centuries since you've climbed a balcony
or do you do this every night with someone else
you tell me that you never leave
and I am almost afraid to believe it
why is it me you've chosen to follow
did you like the way I look when I am sleeping
was my hair more fun to tangle
are my dreams more entertaining
do you laugh when I'm complaining that I'm all alone
where were you when I searched the sea
for a friend to talk to me
in a year where will you be
is it enough for you to steal into my mind
filling up my page with music written in my hand
you know I'll take the credit for I must have made you come to me somehow
but please try to close the curtains when you leave at night

If You Feel Better

If you feel better
Telling me I'm cruel
Saying I'm unfeeling
I don't mind
If it's necessary
If it helps you out
Crying that I'm heartless
It's alright
Well I'm sorry
To cause you so much pain
But it occurs to me
You're acting like a ten year old
So glad you're still in touch
With your inner child
All the same what can you really hope
To gain from complaining
I could apologize for all the things
I've never done
But how much fun would that be
So no I won't do that
But if you feel better
Telling me I'm cruel
Saying I'm unfeeling
I don't mind
If it's necessary
If it helps you out
Crying that I'm heartless
It's alright
Won't make me sorry
'Cause Im cruel
Won't hurt my feelings
'Cause I dont have any
Wont break my heart
'Cause its not there to break

"There's a spotlight of a holy kind
Think it comes from somewhere
Up in the sky or from some far off lovely place
But this light never ever ever shone on me
At least as far as I could see
So I sat in the dark and I watched you
Now I just cry to myself
When there's no one around
And I teach myself to walk backwards
Out of any given situation
Yes I can be graceful and try
Not to step on my train and
You don't have to say goodbye
But I'll be right here if you want to..."
