Lyrics

1. MISERIA CANTARE (THE BEGINNING)

Love your hate, your faith lost, you are now one of us! [x3]

Nothing, From nowhere, I am no one at all
Radiate, Recognize, One silent call
As we all form one dark flame
Dance in array!

Nothing, From nowhere, I am no one at all
Radiate, Recognize, One silent call
As we all form one dark flame
As we all form one dark flame
As we all!

Love your hate, your faith lost, you are now one of us! [x3]




2. THE LEAVING SONG PT. 2

Don't waste your touch
You won't feel anything
Or were you sent to save me?
I've thought too much
You won't find anything worthy of redeeming

Yo he estado aqui
Muchas veces antes y regreso

To break down and
Cease all feeling
Burn now what once was breathing

Reach out and you may take my heart away
Imperfect cry and scream in ecstasy
But what befalls the flawless?

Look what I've built
It shines so beautifully!
Now watch as it destroys me

Y regreso aqui otra vez
Y comienzo

To break down
And cease all feeling
Burn down what once was breathing

Reach out and you may take my heart away

I left it all behind
And never said good-bye
I left it all to die
I saw its birth
I watched it grow
I felt it change me
I took the life
I ate it slow
Now it consumes me




3. BLEED BLACK

I am exploring the inside
I find it desolate
I do implore these confines
Now as they penetrate me
Recreate me
I'm hovering throughout time

I crumble in these days
I crumble, I cannot find reflection in these days
If you list, list close
Beat-by-beat
You can hear when the heart stops

I saved the pieces when it broke
And ground them into dust
I am destroyed by the inside
I disassociate
I hope to destroy the outside
It will alleviate and elevate me
Like water flowing into lungs
I'm flowing through these days
As morphine tears through deadened veins
I'm numbing in these days
I know what died that night
It can never be brought back to life once again, I know
I know I died that night and I'll never be brought back to life
Once again, I know
If you listen, listen close
Beat-by-beat
You can hear when the heart stops
I saved the pieces when it broke
And ground them all to dust




4. SILVER AND COLD

I
I came here today
But I left here in darkness
And found you
Found you on the way
And now
It is silver and silent
It is silver and cold
You, in somber resplendence, I hold

Your sins into me
Oh my beatiful one
Your sins into me
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one

Life
Like a flutter of wings
Feel your hollow bones rushing
Into me
As your longing to say
So I
I will paint you in sliver
I will wrap you in cold
I will lift up your forces aside

Your sins into me
Oh my beatiful one
Your sins into me
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me

(Move in life's throw)(?)
I fell asleep for you
(Move in life's through)(?)
I will only ask you turn away
Cold in life's throw
I fall asleep for you
Cold in life's throw
I only ask you turn
As you seep
Into me
Oh my beautiful one

Your sins into me
Oh my beatiful one
Your sins into me
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me
Oh
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one
Your sins into me
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into
Your sins into me
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one




5. DANCING THROUGH SUNDAY

Will you join me in this dance of misery
Cradled in impossibility?
Swooning i am swept away
So mark your feet, and step, step, step, who takes the lead?
And that's the time we start to bleed

Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Oh, we dance in misery
Lost in the arms of misery, oh!
Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Swept off our feet by misery we're swept into shadows

Will you lend yourself to beauty that will horrify?
Let me hide within your black
The still inside your eyes
Deafened, caught within a cry so sensual
As step-by-step, I seperate
While breath-by-breath, I suffocate

Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Oh, we dance in misery
Lost in the arms of misery, oh!
Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Swept off our feet by misery we're swept into shadows

So who will follow?
Who will be lead?
I know I'll leave a stain because I bleed as we dance
We all dance
We all have no chance in this horrid romance

Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Oh, we dance in misery
Lost in the arms of misery, oh!
Oh, we dance in misery
And we dance on, and we dance on
Swept off our feet by misery we're swept into shadows
Swept off our feet by misery we're swept into shadows yeah




6. GIRL'S NOT GREY

I'll lay me down tonight much further down, swim in the calm tonight
This art does drown

What follows me as the whitest lace of light just begs to be imbrued?
What follows will swallow whole
What follows has lead me to this place where I belong, with all erased

All insects sing tonight, the coldest sound
I'd send god's grace tonight, could it be found

What follows me as the whitest lace of light just begs to be imbrued?
What follows will swallow whole
What follows has lead me to this place where I belong, with all erased

I'll lay me down tonight much further down... watch stars go out tonight
On sinking ground I'll lay me down
What follows will swallow whole

What follows me as the whitest lace of light just begs to be imbrued?
What follows will swallow whole
What follows has lead me to this place where I belong, with all erased




7. DEATH OF SEASONS

Of late, it's harder
Just to go outside, to leave this dead space
With hatred, so alive
Running with sickness
Drowning through banality
Jump on the weakness, full force to return

I watch the stars as they fall from the sky
I held the falling star and it wept for me, dyin'
I feel the falling stars encircle me, now as they cry

Crawl back so quickly, close, malignant trust will shiver
extinction crack sails unrecognized
Sinning so wounded
Support with mortality

All of this hatred, is fucking real

I watch the stars they fall from the sky
I held the falling star and it wept for me, dyin'
I feel the falling stars encircle me, now as they cry

But it won't be alright, despite what they say
Just watch the stars tonight as they, as they, as they disappear
Disintegrate
Create time, disintegrate. Cause this hate is fucking real
And I hope to shake the world as stars go out and I Disintegrate




8. THE GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT

I remember, a place I used to go
They sang the songs of light
The sang so beautiful
I can remember such painful memories
I train the eyes, to see

Oh I was smuthered, so near the cherished ones
I knew they would appear, soon I'm the single one
Oh I as smuthered, when in so impatiently
I made a wish to bleed

When I waken
I was wasted away
While I waken
I was wasted away

I can remember dreamt thoughts so vividly
Some creatures stiped in white like it's disgracing me
I can remember when I just realized dreams were the only place to see them

When I waken
I was wasted away
While I waken
I was wasted away
When I waken
I was wasted away

Hope was wasted away
Faith was wasted away
I was wasted away

Never never wanted this
Always wanted to believe
Never never wanted this
I could not help because
Never Never wanted this
From the start I've been decieved
Never never wanted this
I could not help because. [2x]

Is that a problem that I face
(But you promised.)
Sometimes I'm in a place
(But you promised.)
Me

When I waken
I was wasted away
While I waken
I was wasted away

Hope was wasted away
Faith was wasted away
I was wasted away




9. PAPER AIRPLANES (MAKESHIFT WINGS)

Raise high monolithic statues, so fragile
As they fall
I am ever enthralled
Gaze, lie and smirk in time
Your arrogance will suit you well 'til fashion is dispelled

As waves of plastic fame
Go out of fashion
You're going out forever unknown
These waves of plastic fame are drying up
And I smile because you're dying to become forever unknown

From above a rain of ashes descnes
Anathema I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion
Look up to the sky to see paper wings
And watch them burn

Without habitation
You'll never find a soul inside
No life, but nothing's died
No lights, but quite the show
(Just as long as no one ever knows all motion is pantomne)

Dancing in the rain of descending ash
Dancing on your grave
I'll see you all falling
Dancing in the rain of descending ash
Dancing in your dust
I'll see you all falling
I'd stop it, had you a heart




10. THE CELLULOID DREAM

Calling tears from deep inside oh you're so exquisite
And in the mirror all midnight eyes
Oh, If I could remain, but it's just a visit
All midnight eyes read "vacancy"
Twisted, twisting

To the lovely dancing lights
I begged, "may I cut in?"
But they never stopped
Playing "thier song"
Of a joyous song they sing
I've heard whispers
On a freezing note, I resonate

Just like romantic verses, just likea joyous end
Just like a memory it twists me
Just like romantic verses just like a joyous end

Twist, twisting me

You land as lightly as the new snow
Cinematic
Onto the melting boy
And melt away
You light as gently you're so
Cinematic
BATHED IN YOUR RADIANCE I MELT

In the glitter, in the dark
sunk into velvet
praying this will never end
In the shadow of a star
in static pallor
I realized i never began

Just like romantic verses, just likea joyous end
Just like a memory it twists me
Just like romantic verses just like a joyous end

twist, twisting me

You land as lightly as the new snow
Cinematic
Onto the melting boy
and melt away
You light as gently you're so
Cinematic
BATHED IN YOUR RADIANCE I MELT

All the colors upon leaving i will turn to grey
All the colors upon leaving i will turn to grey
(All grey)
All the colors
(All grey)
Upon leaving
(All grey)
I will turn to grey
(All grey)
All the colors
(All grey)
Upon leaving
(All grey)
I will turn to grey...grey

Twisting me

You land as lightly as the new snow
Cinematic
Onto the melting boy
And melt away
You light as gently you're so
Cinematic
BATHED IN YOUR RADIANCE

You land as lightly as the new snow
Cinematic
You land as gently as the new snow
And melt away
You land as gently as the new snow
Cinematic
BATHED IN YOUR RADIANCE I MELT




11. THE LEAVING SONG

Walked away
Heard them say
Poison hearts will never change
Walk away again
Turned away in disgrace
Felt the chill upon my face
Cooling from within

Hard to notice
Gleaming from the sky
When your staring at the cracks
Hard to notice
What is passing by
With eyes low, Oh

Walked away
Heard them say
Poison hearts will never change
Walk away again

All the cracks they lead right to me
And all the cracks will crawl right through me
All the cracks they lead right to me
And all the cracks will crawl right through me
And they'll part
As I

Walked away
Heard them say
Poison hearts will never change
Walk away again
Turned away in disgrace
Felt the chill upon my face
Cooling from within




12. ...BUT HOME IS NOWHERE

Twenty-six years and seems like I've just begun
To understand my, my intimate is no one
When the director sold the show, who bought its last rites?
They cut the cast, the music, and the lights

This is my line, this is eternal
How did I ever end up here?
Discarnate, preternatural
My prayers to disappear
Absent of grace, marked as infernal
Ungranted in dead time left me disowned
To this nature, so unnatural
I remain alone

Twenty-six years end, still speaking in these tongues
Such revelations while understood by no one
When the new actor stole the show, who questioned his grace?
Please clear the house of ill-aquired taste

This is my line, this is eternal
How did I ever end up here?
Discarnate, preternatural
My prayers to disappear
Absent of grace, marked as infernal
Ungranted in dead time left me disowned
To this nature, so unnatural
I remain alone

Give me something, give me something
Give me something, give me something
Give me something, give me something real

I lay strewn across the floor, can't solve this puzzle
Everyday another small piece can't be found
I lay strewn across the floor, pieced up in sorrow
The pieces are lost, these pieces don't fit
Pieced together incomplete and empty

This is my line, this is eternal
How did I ever end up here?
Discarnate, preternatural
My prayers to disappear
Absent of grace, marked as infernal
Ungranted in dead time left me disowned
To this nature, so unnatural
I remain alone

This is my line, this is eternal
How did I end up here?
Discarnate, preternatural
My prayers to disappear
Absent of grace, marked as infernal
Ungranted in dead time left me disowned
To this nature, so unnatural
I remain alone
