Killing with a Smile tracks

Lyrics


1. GIMME A D

You could never be my envy.
You could never be my jealousy.
You could never be my envy.
You could never be my jealousy.
A world without you is a world I could only wish for.
A world without you is a world I'd fucking die for.
You've taken everything...
Poison and despise lay in rampant wake in the shadows you have created
We've been left to drown in an endless tide of apathy
You disgust me
The guise of a true murderer
Killing with a smile
As your cyanide lips rip us apart
Now there'll be no forgiveness
'cause this is.... this is the end'
A world without you is a world I could only wish for,
And a world without you is a world I'd fucking die for.
So I'll hold that pretty face beneath the surface
Until your lungs hold nothing but the affliction you've created
This world is wasted on your life
Through evils eyes I've seen your soul betrayed
I'll watch you fucking drown
So I'll hold your pretty face beneath the surface
Until your lungs hold nothing
There'll be no forgiveness, no forgiveness




2. ANASASIS (XENOPHONTIS)

Your warm embrace has been replaced by cold
And those defiant eyes have fallen
Broken by the Floor
Another rain-streaked face
Left alone to drown in malice
And your bleeding heart can only heal so much
We can't weather this storm of longing
And water cannot cleanse the blood from our past
Can you hear your crying wish?
Because your prayers remain... answerless
Your prayers remain
In sweet decay
Your prayers remain
In this sweet decay
Your Love failed me
Broken hearts and shattered dreams could never carry your fractured world
So just throw it all away
Your love is lost on us
Just throw is all away
Your love is lost on us




3. PANDORA

The daylight's gone
The empty streets echo our past and the days that once were so beautiful
Before now
Before us
So save yourself
'Cause all dreams are gone
And all hope has faded
And as the sunlight fails I watch this world slip away
And we smiled as we betrayed ourselves
And a clear sky is only a distant memory
Our worst intentions carried away on the evening breathe
Everything we lived for draws our final thought around our necks
Your faces lies still
I can't see your breath and it's freezing my blood until the end
One more time one more line
What is this hell
Reminisce to the beginning of everything
But The irony alone would kill me
Ten thousand hearts set to silence for the choice of one
End it all with the touch of a switch and I can see our lives burn before my eyes
'Cause all dreams are gone
And all hope has faded
And as sunlight fails I watch this world slip away
Your face lies still
I can't see your breath and it's freezing my blood until the end
Ten thousand hearts set to silence for the choice of one
End it all with the touch of a switch and I can see our lives burn
I can see our lives
I can see our lives burn
Your face lies still
I can't see your breath and it's freezing my blood until the end
As we just let it slip away




4. ROMANCE IS DEAD

The incisions in your wrist were all for show, just like you
The epitome of self indulgence
Another farce, a charade and another set of crocodile tears
So serenade her with your last pathetic suicide love song
"Broken hearts never mend" but fools never move on
And now she's gone because of you
And once again you're the epitome of pure self destruction
Cupid never found his mark
As we await the insertion of blades on flesh
You part the skin and tell of blades on blood
So part the fucking skin
So part the fucking skin to tell the blades on blood
She said "I Love You"
She said
She said goodbye
So cry me a fucking river bitch
You wouldn't know love if it crushed your fucking chest
Let go
You wouldn't know love if it crushed your fucking chest
"Razors, roses and a black tomorrow"
They never showed any affection to anything but your ego
A tragedy of errors at the best of times
You are everything that's wrong with me
You're everything that I despise
You are everything I dreamed would die
You are everything that fades away and slowly dies
Will you bleed for me when suicide seems so yesterday?
Will you bleed for me?
Will you fucking bleed for me when suicide...
It's so yesterday
It's all so fucking yesterday




5. GUNS FOR SHOW, KNIVES FOR A PRO

I saw the disappointment from across your face.
A mark of solitude.
So here's to giving in.
Your eyes have betrayed you.
And I'll wear this mask of disgust for every day I've met you.
Disarm with a smile.
Your eyes Betrayed me.
String me another line as your knife severs my spine.
The blackness of your heart has spread beneath your skin.
And as your new face runs I count the seconds till you're gone.
As your new face runs I count the seconds until you're fucking gone.
Hold this allegiance with the hearts of apathy.
We cannot breathe from your choking hands.
Mark this hour of hopelessness with burning bodies.
Returning for your heart.
Returning for your fucking heart.
Murder is on the air tonight.




6. BLACKOUT

Tragedy.
Another day lies broken and lost.
A shattered life cuts the pulse of acceptance.
And all I want is to be something more than this.
Another day lies broken and lost.
A shattered life cuts the pulse of Acceptance.
And all I want is to be anything but this.
Sleepless nights spent screaming for answers.
Cursing sweet venom at a wretched future.
An open casket stained with hope.
Laced with deceit and treachery.
An existence I only wish to forget.
Why do I always regret?
Those words leave the taste of blood.
Forget my face.
Just bury everything.
Why do I always let it go?
'cause I've let it slip away between my fingertips.
I've tried so fucking hard and still I could never gain a true understanding.
Chocking at our misery.
Splinters of failure cut like glass.
And I'm sick of just pouring myself out into careless hands.
Choking on our misery.
Splinters of failure cut like glass.
But I'll put it to rest tonight in the hope that maybe I won't have to wake.
I'll put it all to rest tonight.
Forget my face.




7. PICTURE PERFECT, PATHETIC

If looks could kill.
You'd be a fucking shotgun
Against my head so fucking cold.
Picture perfect and pathetic.
I would so love to hang you.
Cat got your tongue?
Selling yourself short again?
You're selling yourself short again.
Bare your insecurities.
I want to see you cry.
I want to see your tears.
Why did you throw your heart away?
Why did you let yourself down?
Why did you throw your heart away.
Why did you let yourself down time and again.
Why did you throw you heart away.
So taste the skin and let your heartbeat slow.
Feel you bleeding away.
Lifeless.
Why did you let yourself down.
Why did you throw your heart away.
That cheap fucking smile carries you to bed.
And those lips are social suicide but I just want to see you dead.
You're like a shotgun baby.
Pointed at my head.
And those lips are suicide but I just want to see you dead.




8. IT'S HARD TO SPEAK WITHOUT A TONGUE

After everything you've done.
After your second face failed.
This time there's nothing left to save.
And your words were broken.
With the touch of vipers you set your words upon my back.
Spitting daggers you can't kill those already dead.
Buried beneath a pile of one liners and cheap attempts at honesty.
Buried so fucking far from your worthless lies.
And the fire.
The fire to cleanse your mouth.
You'll never awake from your hell and for a second you almost had me fooled.
Keep walking.
Keep breathing.
Keep cursing our names.
We're plotting your end by the dawn.
We're apparitions that stalk your every turn.
We're death incarnate to cleanse you from this world.
Midnight.
Until I see your face again.
Until I end this loveless dance.
Midnight.
Until I see you fucking scream.
And until I see the moonlight shine with your blood we'll dig your grave.
We'll dig your fucking grave.
Until I see your face again.
Until I end this loveless dance.
Midnight.
Until I see you fucking scream.
And until I see the moonlight shine with your blood.
Midnight.
Until I see your face again.
Until I end this loveless dance.
Midnight.
Until I see you fucking scream.
And until I see the moonlight shine red.




9. MUTINY

The deepest circle of Hell is reserved for betrayers and mutineers.

Fuck the memories.
We're dead at every turn.
So spin your fucking shit and we'll die with every twist of tongue.
Your hollow gaze has shifted past my eyes.
Another dead face fades away.
Now what's left to take?
Another day I regret your memory.
In my mind you will never be more than this.
So what's left to fucking take?
Now my trust is gone.
As your world comes crashing down I'm going to watch it fucking burn.
Everything we had lies in pieces.
Everything we had fucking dies... tonight.
Through those deceiving eyes I've seen the blackest heart.
The blackest heart.
Everything you love fucking dies tonight.




10. SMOKE 'EM IF YA GOT 'EM

Die
Thoughts replaced by a placid romance
Without movement, I can't escape
Die
Searching through the static
Twisted and torn inside out
Such blinding visions of destruction
So I have to question
Was this in the master plan?
'Cause now a broken future's all that we hold
Broken
Our broken future's all that we hold
Our day draws
To it's close
Dusk
Washes away
Integrity now bleeds away
As tired hearts are left to drain
Do you see their faces when you fall asleep at night?
Now they're nothing more than blood stained memories
Memories
Blood stained memories




11. A COLD DAY IN HELL

Sever.
And step forward.
I will separate myself from you.
I will walk this line unassisted and undeterred.
Sever.
Sever the strings.
I'll cast aside your uniform.
Your focus shifted too much for me to not question.
Your sincerity.
To manufacture misery.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything you ever lust for will be taken from you.
Your reflection.
Ghost of a beauty queen.
Plagued with fashion.
And stain our mouths with worthless deception.
You're a plastic perfection.
We'll burn you to the ground.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything you ever lust for will be taken from you.
Everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever knew.
Everything you ever lust for will be taken from your heart.
When did this all become so meaningless?
As to your second skin.
Now the wolves become nothing more than sheep.
We set flame these apathetic trends.
Set flame the paths that have led us astray for too long.
Set flame the paths that have led us astray for the last time.
Burn.
All bets are off.
I'll watch the heartless burn.
Tomorrow's dawn will be alight with our burning bridges.
All bets are off.
I'll watch the heartless burn.
Tomorrow dawn will be alight through seasons change I've watched you waste away.
Shed your skin and become.
Reach inside your chest and remove what's left of your blackened heart.
Through the seasons change I've watched you waste away.
And become one with the damned.
You lust for.
Reach inside your chest and remove what's left of your blackened heart with distain
