Lyrics


01 - DELILAH'S LIE

Buried her head in her hands
(Delilah, you liar)
Buried the sun with the mysteries within
(She craves the sin)
She played her perfection
The lie was waiting to be
The words left unspoken
Now you will see…

Her lips are sealed
And dead in a kiss
The promises, she made and touched her lips

Sleep through the fear, through the din
(Go to sleep my little one)
Blood on my lips from the dagger that I kissed
(Kiss the pain away)
Now death I have tasted
Though I had sensed your treason
Your virtues lay wasted
So it will be…

Her lips are sealed
And dead in a kiss
The promises, she made and touched her lips
Burn in her fire with your passion within
Go to sleep my little sin




02 - YOUR HANDS SO COLD

Forget my past in your game
This is just a bruise
This is just the mirror meant to show the truth
Dusty eyes set free to rise, changing over soon
Dusty eyes to see now the changes in you

Your hand's so cold… forgive me
Your hand's so cold… forgive me

I can't breathe this poison
It strangles little girls
The marks of pain remaining
Upon her face a pearl
A trail for all, a sinner's ball
Stare with hungry eyes
A trail for all the sinners
Staring as you rise

Your hand's so cold… forgive me
Your hand's so cold… forgive me
All that's left until the end
All that's left, our time be damned
Your hand's so cold

Oh, forgive me

This is the mirror
It reflects what is real
Sinners stare as you rise
And they kill with their eyes
This is the end
Our time may be damned
As you trip, as you change
As you slip out of range

This is the mirror
It reflects what is real
Sinners stare as you rise
And they kill with their eyes
This is the end
Our time will be damned
As you trip, as you change
As you slip

Your hand's so cold… forgive me
Your hand's so cold… forgive me
All that's left until the end
All that's left, our time be damned
Your hand's so cold




03 - STAY WITH ME

Where will I stand
When there's nothing left to say?
Stay with me
What will you choose
When there's nothing left to lose?
Time stands still

Hide behind the walls
Where a house is not a home
Stay with me
I can't break through
When there's nothing to be told
Stay with me

Stay with me
When there's nothing left
Stay with me

How can I breathe
When the sky has turned to grey?
It fades away
I don't understand
Does it always feel so cold?
Breathe with me

Do the nightmares find your head
Staring to the face behind?
Time is all we have
When the sky has turned to grey
Stay with me

Stay with me
When there's nothing left to say
Please stay




04 - GO

A craving is calling me
Desire in all its splendor
Pulsating, rushing sounds
Getting louder and louder

Go, go
Show you the secret me
Flaunting my desire
Moral virtues are beneath me
Oblivious to pain

Go, go To the underground
Hey, hey Let's die forever
No, no No limits here
Open up, you know you want to
Let's go

Feed me with your last breath
Embrace your destination
Take me as far as you dare
I'm on the edge so....

Go, go To the underground
Hey, hey Let's die forever
No, no No limits here
Open up, you know you want to
Let's go

Feel the force out of control
Shattered dreams are taking over
Fears have lost their lustre now
Excel in all my senses
Give it up . Give it

Go, go To the underground
Hey, hey Let's die forever
No, no No limits here
Open up, you know you want to
Let's go




05 - LOST

Shelter for a frightened girl
Who lost so many years
Lost track of all the tears
Shelter in a bitter world
Protect her from her fears
She needs shelter now
Give her shelter

Never was she scared before
Death tempted her away
Gave meaning to her days
Never did she dare explore
The feeling held at bay
And she never will
No, never

Forever we severed
The ties that bind together
Keeping us alive
We're losing, refusing
The cry that keeps us choosing
Was she hearing mine?
Did she take the time?

Wander through your fate alone
Where madness rules the weak
Too painful there to speak
Wonder why the love has gone
Your loss is not unique
So you wander lost
And you wander

Forever we severed
The ties that bind together
Keeping us alive
We're losing, refusing
The cry that keeps us choosing
Was she hearing mine?

Lost inside this memory
Break under the weight
Will my fate be doomed
To make the same mistakes?




06 - SOMETHING I SAID

Don't close the door
It's cold outside
Nothing is the same anymore

It's all changing It's cold outside

Don't close the door
I feel one with the cold outside
And now nothing seems the same anymore

It's all changing
And I've absolutely no control
So tell me now

Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Just you and me

My words turn into accusations
Yours into excuses
The distance creeps between you and me
So why don't you just go on and tell me now

Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Oh, just tell me now
Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Just you and me

No matter what I say here, I'll still be losing
No matter what I do, I am lost anyway
What're you saying? Just tell me now

Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Oh, just tell me now
Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Just you and me

Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Oh, just tell me now
Is it something I said, is it something I did?
Is it something in between you and me?
Just you and me

And it cuts me like a knife
A different story, waiting for your lies
Is it something I said?
Is it something to regret?
So tell me now…




07 - AWAKEN

Wake up little girl
We're running out of time
I know that you've been running
On a long, lost line
They cut your tongue in pieces
Denied you any rights
They burned you with their secrets
And taunted you to bite

You never fear the darkness
The light will only see
The struggle you've been into
The gashes on your knees
The chains of filth and aching
The barbs of suffering
They almost seem more beautiful
Than this life

Just let her sleep. On a bed of wild roses
Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin
As I kiss her goodnight. I kiss her goodbye

I never know, so tell me
The colour of your eyes
It turns all red and scorches
Every time I ask you why
Frightened of the truth
Or can't I recognize the lie
Can I ever find the courage?
To conquer this and…

Just let her sleep. On a bed of wild roses
Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin
As I kiss her goodnight . I kiss her goodbye

Do I wear the mask of your enemies
There's no echo of this sorrowed land
The scars are buried deep
All your trails so many years
Still hunting for the things unknown to man

Just let her sleep. On a bed of white roses
Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin
As I kiss her goodnight. I kiss her goodbye




08 - SOUR GROUND

She wrote her name in sand
And lived a lie within
The sadness and sorrow
For the loss that came again
Water washed the tears away
But the emptiness stayed
Tamed itself with outrage
And spit the bitterness away

This water won't feed the earth
Nothing grows on sour ground

She cannot calm the screams
To silence in her head
Staring with her empty eyes
Try to feel what she had
She wrote her name in sand
And loved a lie within
Where beauty can be cruel
And beauty takes it all

This water won't feed the earth
Nothing grows on sour ground

I will swim with you
And play amongst the waves
Where mermaids will be singing
Where the sweet song remains
Like a comfort whisper
To be together again
She wrote her name in sand
And believed her lie within

This water won't feed the earth
Nothing grows on sour ground
This water won't feed the earth
Nothing grows on sour ground




09 - ROSES

She puts on her makeup
And roses in her hair
She smiles to the face in front of her
And tries to be sincere
Tomorrow seems so far away
When the moon shines silver light
Shines her silver light
That blazes through the night

Never to last. Never would there be
Another question to ask
Forgotten in a dying flame

She opens her heart up
In hope of better times
A sliver of a trust betrayed
Of old, forgotten rhymes
Her eyes, they cast their twisted spells
And thorns tear through her dreams
Petals falling hopelessly
With nothings as it seems

Never to last. Never would there be
Another question to ask
Forgotten in a dying flame

Questions never been asked
In the silence of the night
And even when she tries to talk
I forget, I forget myself

Escape in lonely stories
Too sad for her to tell
No one there to comfort her
She sighs, “It's just as well…”

Never to last. Never would there be
Another question to ask
Forgotten in a dying flame
Never meant to last
Never would there be
Another question to ask
Forgotten in a dying flame




10 - CHAIN ME

Change my life, seize me. Change me, chain me
Change my life, please me. Change me, chain me

A lonely beach in the distance far
The building sites, the city lights
Seeking her Atlantis
Beneath a windy town

Lost in her fantasies
Drowning in her dream
The waves so wild
Pounding patterns into white
Modern times descended
The dream is taking flight

Running from the beach, suspended are the lights
“What'll I find,” she says, “In the ropes, death or life”?
Returning to the folds, like her mother's dress
She heads for the structure, for eventual re-birth

Change my life, seize me. Change me, chain me
Change my life, please me. Change me, chain me

The water's black and the moon drifts by
Orchestral nights perform their rites
Sinking in Atlantis
They dance on their way down

A figure slowly exiting from this crazy scene
And Neptune smiles with his trident come to life
He summons me to the sea
To be his liquid wife

Standing on a bridge, I can see for miles
“Change my life,” she says
A cab drives by and she smiles
Spinning round in the city light, she got up without a word
Turned around and disappeared into the night

Change my life, seize me. Change me, chain me
Change my life, please me. Change me, chain me
