Paradise Lost

The Anatomy of Melancholy tracks

Lyrics


DISC 1

1. INTRO

(Instrumental)




2. THE ENEMY

Why can't you say sorrow
Why can't you say I think I believe
Thou must not steal borrow
Why must you steal things I receive?

Why can't you say sorrow
Why can't you say I think I believe
Why must you steal borrow
Always conceal cling to belief

Damaged this way hollowed
Living the lie that you can't take
Damaged maintained solemn
Living for rules you only break

How can you say?

The enemy is thrown into the sadness,
For the enemy there's only pain and sadness then death...




3. GREY

In this autumn rain
We're blessed with autumn skies (autumn skies)

I'm doing it for myself
Not somebody else
I'm doing it for myself

Calling out in shame
Silence engrained
Crying out your name
Something wrong but beautiful, so beautiful

In this awesome rage
Rejecting compromise (compromise)

Undoing it for myself
Not somebody else
Undoing for myself

Calling out in shame
Silence engrained
Crying out your name
Something wrong but beautiful, so beautiful

Like the dead fade away
Life a debt... fade away

Calling out in shame
Silence engrained
Crying out your name
Something wrong but beautiful, so beautiful

Calling out in shame
Silence engrained




4. ERASED

I don't owe anything
I don't owe anyone
Shoot pride for all its worth
I don't belong

In a situation now
That I could not repair
I assert myself to sleep
Show others that I’ve cared
How cold is this poor life
Lay ashes at my grave

If it takes me away from you
A subtle gesture

I don't know anyone (cherish my religion)
I don't know anyone (faith is only fiction)
I don't know anyone (cherish my religion)
I don't know anyone (faith is only fiction)

This is erased I promise not a trace
This is erased I promise no delay not a trace




5. RED SHIFT

There's something in the air that greets me
There's something in the air
I don't know where I belong, or where does it go from here

See my dreams; they're not like anyone's

There's something in your stare that greets me
There's something in your stare that tells me where I belong
And where it all goes from here

I don't know where I belong or where it all goes from here

See my dreams; they're not like anyone's, anyone's

There's something in the air that greets me
There's something in the air
I don't know where I went wrong or where does it go from here

See my dreams; they're not like anyone's, anyone's




6. SO MUCH IS LOST

What this seems to be, what this seems to be, is real
All of my life is changing
You're the enemy, you're the enemy, I fear
All of my life is changing, always some rearranging

So much is lost, so much disharmony
So much is lost, no voice of sympathy

My identity, my identity, is not real
All of my life is changing
All of my lies you're facing

So much is lost, so much disharmony
So much is lost, no voice of sympathy

What this seems to be, what this seems to be, is real
All of my life seems wasted, all of my life seems wasted

So much is lost, so much disharmony
So much is lost, no voice of sympathy

So much is lost, so much disharmony
So much is lost, no voice of sympathy




7. SWEETNESS

You have a history of holding back
A certain sweetness that I lack
Sensitive 'til the day of the final strike
Hatred coming on from greater heights

Won't you stay away
I'll pass away a different day
Won't you stay away
Don't hold it against me

Looking down on a rogue this lonely frame
It's predictable the killing game
The sickness knows not what feels right
You've gotta hold on to what feels right

Won't you stay away
I'll pass away a different day
Won't you stay away
Together it's impossible

I see blood on the robe

Cold hearts will still haunt you




8. PRAISE LAMENTED SHADE

Never seen such doubt
Never seen without
Forever seemed so right
Understand I try

Endeavour rests inane
Takes us once again...

Somewhere in the air

The world can see a reason I believe
The words deceive the reason I believe

Heaven seemed so right
Understanding lies
Hail the fallen grade
Praise lamented shade

Somewhere in the air

The world can see a reason I believe
The words deceive the reason I believe

So you want to show
The only way you've known
A truth for all who see
A cue for all who know




9. PITY THE SADNESS

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contempt and sins priorities...
To crush good fortune
Morning...

Morning's calm, inside I cry
This painful live has raped my mind
Take me down, slow release
From sorrow's penetration
Morning...

Life is there for me
Hell is there for me

Sunlight greets my open wounds
Morning's light reflects the doom
My soul is free, it lives again
To roam alone in darkness
Morning...

I've cried for god
And I’ve cried for you
I pray that in the end your sense will break though

Sadness lives after we die
The pains of life increased outright
Contest my sins priorities
Crushed my spirit to its knees




10. FOREVER FAILURE

You must feel frustration,
'Cause your mind feels such temptation,
And your ways appear a total lack of faith.

You may feel elation,
At your body's re-creation,
And that joy you need, restricted by one thought.

Are you forever - loss of purpose in a passive life,
Are you forever - pale, regarded as a waste of time.

High times are courageous,
But it truth they suit no purpose,
Induced, reduced, unable and afraid...

Can you feel rejection,
And a lack of motivation,
And the joy you need, restricted and delayed.

Are you forever - loss of purpose in a passive life
Are you forever - pale, regarded as a waste of time




11. ONCE SOLEMN

Once solemn, the thing I'm leaving alone,
Once solemn, the looks that turn one to stone,
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the panic inside,
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the fake promises.

Your powers electrify me,
Your prowess repels apathy,
Your image can turn your soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...

Unchaining the thing that's holding me down,
And it's frustrating, the pressure's getting me down,
And it's trying to live with a bad decision every day,
It's a fever that's eating away in search of a fast release.

Your powers electrify me,
Devour the one that's guilty,
Your image can turn a soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...

Your powers electrify me,
Devour the one who's guilty,
Your prowess repels apathy,
Your image can turn a soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...




12. AS I DIE

As I die

Stare as eyes uphold me
And wait to see right through
And curse me... The love has crippled you

Shadows haunt the night
Burning my disguise

Reaping through the truth
Life becomes untrue

Sin the last diversion
My fate will be untouched
Dismissed now, the anger of a fool

Shadows haunt the night
Forgive me as I die

Taking a chance
And take what you gain
My soul it has no price
Total release is out of harms way
Until I can decide
You push me, can't you see, I’m not real
Tears are flowing free, passing by, as I die




DISC 2

1. EMBERS FIRE

A fallen time that's bygone
A crude elite that's from a distant zone
You don't know if It's the truth you told

Anger looks on the quiet dreaming
Seals the sense incandescent ones

Hold back desire for danger
A bet you lose, you'll have no way to turn
I see the man who lives and breathes corruption
Into a circle that you call you own

Don't run away, from the pain, A claim that you deal with
A power game, from within, Impossible for you to see this.

Laid down the laws of deceit
The ones who cherish are the ones who'll go
Into the ashes of a tortured world
Only in mind's eye can you see a light

Harmony break, dark awakes, in old eyes - the trouble, feel it
Here to stay, mark the way, improvise the judgment hearing

Anger looks on the quiet dreaming
Seals the scense incandescent ones

All remains of the glowing embers
is a bleak cold irrelevance




2. MOUTH

Feel so low some days
And only I can taste
Resent security
Obscuring all I see

In my mind
In my mouth
In my soul
Only you provide these symptoms that I show

I could go out in style
Go back from where I came
But luck sees to us all
And rarely plays the game

We've seen it all through many years of lonesome hell
Back to a place where we all terminate




3. NO CELEBRATION

Take my hand,
Hurray for the winters come...
Cease my plans
Excuse me from the scenes of old

I can meet you there? I just don't care
On this new years day
With no celebration from me

Understand
There's comfort with the wealth of gold
Increase demands
Release me from the scenes of old

I can't make it clear you just won't hear
On this new years day
There's no celebration from me

I could see you there? We just don't care
On this new years day
Without hesitation
There's no celebration from me




4. ETERNAL

Why can't we hear
The time must come for us to leave here
Emotion has withered away
Our burnt out love has decayed
Obsessed to leave the earth
Tragedy has overrun since birth
Now our righteous fathers weep
As we greet eternal sleep
Are we born to pass away
Cry at all that remains
'Chosen words' fail to sustain
The wisdom of powers heard
In dismal thoughts seemingly absurd
Now as hope and glory dies
We'll scream at our demise
Are we lost forever more?




5. TRUE BELIEF

Wretched will, host of pleasure surreal
Closed the room where the last is buried

Rise or fall at your master's request
You're unable to accept redemption

I don't know about a true belief here
With the 'lost' it's the same as always

All I want is the same, a true belief

You can't wait to become a memory
With the 'weak' it's the same as always

Stand confused lack of comprehension,
Re-aroused by a thought of madness

And I know that the truth is always right
But it's time to search for lies
You're the only I try to save
But the blood spills from your veins

Call counting time till the end
Death's wicked smile never fails
The curse is cast, you've lost the past
Forevermore, a candle burns here no more

I don't know about a century life
When the love of generations die

I can see no good in taking your own life
When any moment death calls...

All I want is the same, a true belief




6. ONE SECOND

And for one second, I lost my head
And for one second, I wished that you were dead
And for one second, you wish that you were here all alone
Hold back the tears that could fall for me

And for one second, I lost my breath
And for one second, I cherish what you said
And for one second, it seemed that I was here all alone
Hold back the tears that could fall for me

And for one second, I understand
And for one second, my life was in your hands
And for one second, you wish that you were here all alone
Hold back the tears that could fall for me, they fall alone




7. THE LAST TIME

It's a struggle with a failures frown,
And it crashes in front of me,
I see the clouds divide,
Will you stay or try to leave.

The time you're looking at through the door,
And think to walk right through,
I want to ignore,
I only wish that it passes soon.

Hearts beating...

I rise a sunken smile,
As I serve only the ones who served,
What can I achive,
As you steal the air I breathe.

A cruel misfortune,
Forbidding is to see,
When stories may collide,
It's a sad stay of mind.

Hearts beating... for the last time

Hearts beating... for the last time
Hearts beating... it is a state of mind
Hearts beating... for the last time
The peace you cannot find




8. GOTHIC

Denying our restlessness
Frustrations tension eludes
The past was clean
Where thoughts were mild
The present day horrors alive
Slowly passing timeless horrors
Lives within all fear
The mourning in my tears
Drown all the past
We lived beneath these years
Awaiting for the call
For all life to expire
Passive to this day
To infinity we'll fail
The light is dim before us
Shadows appear and fall
A barrage of savage ways
Only the darkness can filter through




9. SAY JUST WORDS

You get high, with your destructive instinct
You get high, with your corrosive instinct
Where can I go, to escape your foul mind tricks
You're trying it more, but you will never break me

Cause you presume the winner is you, but that's not true, so say just words to me

Unreal what your hates providing, say just words to me
Your talk is always contradiction, say just words to me
Won't feel warmth of friends around you, say just words to me
Is it true that there is worth inside, so say just words to me

Your designs, all the worse from power craving
Your desires, only where there's fire burning
I'll show you the way, a pleasure that's for the taking
You're trying it more, you won't get satisfaction

Cause you presume the winner is you, but that's not true, so just say words to me
