Lyrics

1. IN VENERE VERITAS

Let's fall apart together now

Zipping Cupid in a body bag well-worn
Next to the mausoleum he was born in
Picking up the pieces of this gory glory of it all
From Eve to mo(u)rn
From Eve to mo(u)rn

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas

Let's fall apart together now

There's a method to our sadness as we drag the mirrored ball and chain
Through the twilight again
Dressed up in shame

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas

We are begging for a reflection from an unshuttered heart
To blind and chase us over the edge

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas
These are wounds that are not meant to heal at all

Let's fall apart together now
Let's fall apart together now




2. IN THE ARMS OF RAIN

Once again we found ourselves to be lost
Holding hands while straying from the path in the forest dark
Aren't you happy to see me crawl serpentine towards the sun to you?

Lift the lid off your heart's casket in the arms of rain
Drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby stop, Hail Maries for the secret you kept from me
Hail Maries but tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Again, I fought myself and lost
Come bite the apple and I'll coil around your heart
I'm so happy to see you weep along in these arms you belong

Lift the lid off your heart's casket in the arms of rain
Drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby stop, Hail Maries for the secret you kept from me
Hail Maries but tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Ave Maria, we've tried
Ave Maria, we've cried
Ave Maria, we've died

Lift the lid off your heart's casket in the arms of rain
Drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby stop, Hail Maries for the secret you kept from me
Hail Maries but tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain
Lift the lid off your heart's casket in the arms of rain
Drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby stop, Hail Maries for the secret you kept from me
Hail Maries
In the arms of rain we are free

It's the end of a road, hold me
It's the end of a road and we're free




3. THE FOREBODING SENSE OF IMPENDING HAPPINESS

By your heartstrings I am hanging from a dream
Gently swinging in the warm autumn breeze

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
Look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up no more

Tip toeing along a strand of your hair suspended between
These thoughts and actions miles above reality

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
Look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
Look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
Look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
Look at the scars
Smother a heart, opening up
(look at the scars)
Opening up
Opening up
Opening up
Look at the Scars
You open me up
Open me up
Smother a heart
Opening up
Opening up
Look at the scars
You open me up
Open me up
Open me up
(Look at the scars)
(Smother a heart)
(Opening up)




4. ODE TO SOLITUDE

Easy on the eyes, uneasy on the heart
Sew my wrists shut
Sew my wrists shut with hope straight into light
Shining bright I dare you you to dream this
And I dare you to dream this gone what I want to know what make you smile less

Here's to the pain, the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains
Here's to the pain as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

Map the scars of a heart bruised and torn
Loosen the noose love
Loosen the noose with love
What I want to know is why you keep me hangin

Here's to the pain, the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains
Here's to the pain as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

If I should fail (and I will) to stay
Remember not to forget this feeling you have
I've failed
Please pretend it never happen baby

Here's to the pain, the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains
Here's to the pain as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

Here's to the pain, the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains
Here's to the pain as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

Ode to solitude
Ode to solitude
Ode to solitude
Ode to solitude




5. HEARTKILLER

Farewell the heartless world
I'll send you a postcard burnt
In the flames you tried so hard to extinguish with fear of failing
I'll write down everything i've learned
And edit it down to a single word
Love, for you I'm waiting, anticipating

Sparks will fly beneath the Luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
A little we die, above the lesser light
For you I'm open wide,
Babe I'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

Top hats off to the return,
Of the beat to lick a wound to
Cursed for some and blessed for a few
It doesn't have to make any sense at all
Come hither and we'll fall
In love, for love
I'm crawling out of patience baby

Sparks will fly beneath the Luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe i'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
A little we die, above the lesser light
For you I'm open wide,
Babe i'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

Paint all your sorrows for me to sing
Heartkiller
Draw your pain and hear me hum it out

Sparks will fly beneath the Luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe i'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
A little we die, above the lesser light
For you I'm open wide,
Babe i'll be a flatliner for a heartkiller




6. LOVE, THE HARDEST WAY

Love's the devil counting teardrops in the rain
To the sound of a chalkboard symphony played with nails
For what it's worth
I don't wanna see you hurt anymore
Than you have to

[Chorus]
Dine on glass
Wine on blood
Baby, love the hard way
Baudelaire in Braille
Baby, love the hard way
Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you to love the hardest way

Pretty like a flower on a tomb you are
Kissed blue by the last arrows of the sun
Olly olly oxen free
Hide and go weep
No more
Unless you want to

[Chorus] (x2)

(Love the hard way)
Love the hardest way
(Love the harder way)
Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you love the hardest way
Love the hardest way
Love the hardest way
Love the hardest




7. SHATTER ME WITH HOPE

The girl who cried at love, won't you come and play with me?
You can be Cassandra, underneath the sword of Damocles
We'll tear this baby apart wise like Solomon
Run, come shatter me now
Shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in, bleed out sorrow
Scream me a dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
Shatter me with hope

She'll be the witness to the repose of Evelyn
Push the needle in
To the of canticles of ecstasy
Turn to page 43
And you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now, shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in, bleed out all sorrow
Scream me a dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
shatter me with hope

Swear on your heart's grave, I'm wrong
And love like your life's depending on it
(because it is!)

We'll tear this baby apart, wise like Solomon
Turn to page forty three, and you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now, shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in
Bleed out all sorrow
Scream me dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
shatter me with hope
Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now
Oh, oh-u, oooh
Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now
Oh, oh-u, oooh,Oh, oh-u, oooh
Scream me a dream.....!
(Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now)
Scream me a dream.....!
(Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now)




8. DYING SONG

I've seen you breathe life into the weakest of hearts
And heard you scream out loud the sweetest poem
Echoing across the ocean reminding me why I still try
To hold onto whatever is left of you and I

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more
Little deaths to a dying song
Sound a lot like life

I've seen these dreams being crushed by a single thought
And felt the envy of sadness engulf all warmth
Barely alive under her eyes by exchanging sighs
With tomorrow quivering in the loneliest light

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more
Little deaths to a dying song
Sound a lot like life and love
Life and love with you

Crawl back into bed
Tomorrow's is trembling
At the sight of you and I

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun 'til we are no more
Little deaths to a dying song
Sound a lot like life and love
Life and love
Life and love
Life and love with you
(Dying song)

Life and love
(A dying song) [x4]

With you...
Dying song




9. DISARM ME (WITH YOUR LONELINESS)

A promise of heaven pushed us right back to hell
Turning three sevens into three sixes again
And you laughed at my face when I told you how much it hurts
And said

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
Telling me how you love

You keep on tempting me to go on whatever the cost
To witness the prettiest flower in bloom wither to dust
So I'll break all the rules in this endless game once called love
For you

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
Telling me how you love me with all your heart
No more

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emmptiness
Telling me how you love
Me with all your heart
No more

Tell me how much it hurts my love?
(No more)
Tell me how my kiss can change your world
(No more)
Tell me how much it hurts (more) to be alone
(No more)
Telling me that you love me with all your heart

No more




10. SCARED TO DEATH

In the biblical sense and sensibility
let me know you
I'll kiss that smile off your face
just say when

I'm not afraid to say 'I love you'
any more than I used to be, babe
I am scared to death, I am scared to death
to fall in love

All these pick-up lines from hell
Icebreakers infernal
from a heart so black and blue
only for you

(just say when, again)

I'm not afraid to say 'I love you'
any more than I used to be, babe
I am scared to death, I am scared to death
to fall in love
with you

I'm not afraid to say 'I love you'
any more than I used to be, babe
I am scared to death, I am scared to death
to fall in love

I'm not afraid to admit I adore you
any more than I was before, babe
I am scared to death, I am scared to death
to fall in love
with you

with you...

scared to death...

I'm scared to death..

And you're sweet like poison...




11. ACOUSTIC FUNERAL (FOR LOVE IN LIMBO)

You missed the winter and it followed you back home
Where sun kissed the crimson footsteps in the melting snow
We are doing our best to disown the golden mean
By disacts of cruelty in the name of beauty to be free

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I saved my last breath for your window
To write you this song for the acoustic funeral

On the verge of a vow to kill all reason locking that door
To a nightmare within a nightmare we are bound to adore
Let the pleasure in the shape of a heart lie to me
And finally confirm all fears to be so real
Be so real

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I saved my last breath for your window
To write you this song for the acoustic funeral

Underneath the ice so thin I am turning blue (I'm turning blue)
The one last thing I know to be real is the shadow of you
Killing love with a kiss

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I saved my last breath for your window
To write you this song

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
(the acoustic funeral for love in limbo)
We're dancing with tags on our toes
(we're dancing with tags on our toes)
I saved my last breath for your window
To write you this song for the acoustic funeral

Lest we have to fall
For the acoustic funeral

Killing love with a kiss
