Ashes You Leave

Songs of the Lost tracks

Lyrics


1. APATHY OVERDOSE

All is lost, black is the world I see
To live or to die makes no difference to me
The morning brings no hope
The day is as dead as the night
People are puppets
Of resignation's magnificent might

My mind cries, while beauty turns to dust
Everything dies, on god's cruel earth
There are no battles left
That are worth fighting for
I have no spirit left
And still they ask for more

I'm high on self destruction
Devoid of joy and satisfaction
Oblivious to both virtue and sin
Apathy is mine to drown in

Enjoy your dreams
For tomorrow brings only pain
Indulge your whims
Most lose, only some gain
Existence - a rudimentary habit
Life - an unsurmountable wall
No point in bothering with it
May death soon join us all




2. THE FEAST

Imagine me like a lie and offer me your smile
Discover my truth and you'll wish to die

The world isn't real, the illusion is strong
Give me your hand and I'll show you how long

Take a bite and feast with me
The taste of sin will set you free
Take this gift to find your way
No need to kneel, no need to pray

You're welcome to this world of frailty
Or you can dream for a while in my reality

In my arms I hold your heart with blood running hot
Would you like to see the way it's going to rot?

Take a bite and feast with me
The taste of sin will set you free
Take this gift to find your way
No need to kneel, no need to pray




3. STRANDED

(I feel) like a lonely ship on the open sea
The deep waters of sorrow are drowning me
My sails are broken and the waves are crushing me
My life is like a shipwreck how come this ever come to me?

I need someone
To save me from myself
And help me
Find my way back home

The rains will stop pouring and the storms will cease
A new sun will rise, a new beginning for me
(I feel) like a lonely ship on the open sea
But the quiet shores of happiness are calling for me




4. SONG OF THE LOST

How was I supposed to know
That a wounded soul would heal so slow
You needed love but love is dead
Ready to paint the world in red
Why did you ever let me see
The death in life and the death in me
The tears shall forever fall

Why do I find it so hard to breathe
And oh so easy to lie down and bleed
Drained of joy and left to rot in hell
There's nothing left but a soul to sell
Why did you ever let me see
The death in life and the death in me

Bring forth the tears caressing
My skin is pale and cold as ice
Bring forth the healing winds of time
This pain is both yours and mine

In silence waits the weapon cold
The key to freedom that I now hold
A dying reflection of a wasted life
My blood is ready to taste the knife
Why did you ever let me see
The death in life and the death in me

Bring forth the tears caressing
My skin is pale and cold as ice
Bring forth the healing winds of time
This pain is both yours and mine




5. EVERY YOU EVERY ME

Sucker love is heaven sent.
You pucker up, our passions spent.
My hearts a tart, your body's rent.
My body's broken, yours is spent.

Carve your name into my arm.
Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed.
Cause theres nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.

Sucker love, a box I choose.
No other box I choose to use.
Another love I would abuse,
No circumstances could excuse.

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone.
Cause theres nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every me...he

Sucker love is known to swing.
Prone to cling and waste these things.
Pucker up for heavens sake.
Theres never been so much at stake.

I serve my head up on a plate.
Its only comfort, calling late.
Cause theres nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every me...he

Every me and every you,
Every me...he

Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

All alone in space and time.
Theres nothing here but what here's here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue.
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every me...he

Every me and every you,
Every me...he [x4]




6. TAINTS

Your angels make me greedy
Your righteous light so bright
Are you ready for my evil taint
Can you resist my might

Let me take your hand and let the smouldering begin
Like grass under glass burning from within

There are no lies and there are no prayers
Your free world is your only care
There are no truths and there are no prayers
Your world will burn under my stare




7. LOSING FAITH

I feel the way you look at me
You haunt me with fear
How proud and stupid can we be
To break off without a tear?

Deep in our hearts we know
That strangers we are
Deep in our hearts we know
That dying is not far

I never felt that way before
Your darkness drew me for more
You were my dark side of the moon
A misplaced note out of a tune

For you I laid there dying
My soul became so small
I am no longer trying
To feel somebody's love again




8. WHERE THE PAIN IS

Just beneath the surface a sinister realm is hidden
With failure, sadness and self-doubt is ridden
And here the impending shadow of all pain reigns
While the hand of weakness is the only one that gains

Dreams may come and dreams may go
But reality's always filled with woe
Do your best to live in bliss
But you'll find me where the pain is

Pain is a beast of darkness that survives on its own
Feeding on my defeats and emotional carrion
Sometimes so violent that I barely manage to see
That I have embraced it, it has become a part of me

Wherever you turn there is pain
You may fight it, but it's all in vain
Do your best to live in bliss
But I will be where the pain is
Always where the pain is




9. SOUL OF ICE

Soul of ice, soul of ice
Why rend my flesh, why burn my eyes
Feel cold within, see dark outside
No warmth can shed your paling light
Soul of ice, soul of ice
Why rend my flesh, why burn my eyes
Behold the pain, withstand the cries
Wretched slave of lies, soul of ice
