I can't see the meaning of this life I'm leading
I try to forget you as you forgot me
This time there is nothing left for you to take,
This is goodbye

Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay

And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away

Close to ending it all, I am drifting through the stages
Of the rapture born within this loss
Thoughts of death inside, Tear me apart from the core of my soul

Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay

And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away

At times the
Bark's fading slowly
But it never sustains
Would someone watch over me
In my time of need

Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay

And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away

. . .


I used to make the light shine for you
The sun has left my sky
Velvet walls surround my sorrows
I've sacrificed my pride

Giving up on me
You're giving up on me
Giving up on me
You're giving up on me

I've laid myself to sleep tonight
I know you've played out everything in your mind

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me
You're giving up on me

Giving up on me
You're giving up on me
Giving up on me
You're giving up on me

I lied myself to sleep tonight
I know, you've played out every line in your mind

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me

And when you feel the pain
I'm wishing I could stay
How can I say I love you back
You never made me happy

You've laid yourself to sleep
I never said this wouldn't hurt
You gave up everything
I never said I'd give it back

I know (I know)
You'll never change
I won't be good enough for you
I know (I know)
You'll make it through
I'll never be around to see

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay
Through thick and thin with me

You're giving up on me [x4]

Silhouette

[No lyrics]

My heart bleeds no more;
now, it's been turned to stone.
Your stomach feels sick for someone else.
I've broken both my legs falling for you.
Drag me on the ground.

Powerless I stand, tarnished blade, cutting through, pushed into my vein.
Blood still stains my hands.
Sharpening my sense of pain outside

My heart bleeds no more;
now, it's been turned to stone.
Your stomach feels sick for someone else.
I've broken both my legs falling for you.
Drag me on the ground.

Killing everything off inside.
Make sense of everything you tried to hide,
hide from me.

My heart bleeds no more;
now, it's been turned to stone.
My stomach feels sore from cutting up.
I ruined all my sanctity for you.
Smash me on the ground.

I wanted to
convince myself there's nothing else to do.
I wanted to.
Provide you with proof of what you put me through.
I wanted to.
Pretend that I was you.
you're the worst thing thats ever happend to me
die

Killing everything off inside.
Make sense of everything you tried to hide,
hide from me.

My heart bleeds no more;
now, it's been turned to stone.
Your stomach feels sick for someone else.
I've broken both my legs falling for you.
Smash me on the ground. My heart bleeds no more;
now, it's been turned to stone.
You're stomach feels sick for someone else.
I've broken both my legs falling for you.
Smash me on the ground.

Come on

Finish me off, follow the plan
Break all the bonds, sever the ties
And now your mission is complete, find and destroy me
Torturing me, with words from your lips
Filleting my skin, pulling my teeth
Please forgive me for not being good enough

Drown your sorrows in my pain (pain)
And it's something you can't explain
When I'm choking on words you'll never say (say)
And you'll never feel the same (same)

Bound and gagged
I cannot move or speak
These things I want to say
I can't explain them anyway
So if I had it all again
If I could start from the first words I ever said
I would do it all the same

Drown your sorrows in my pain (pain)
And it's something you can't explain
When I'm choking on words you'll never say (say)
And you'll never feel the same

Your joy is my pain
My fingers are yours to cut off
And my bones are yours to shatter in pieces
My teeth are yours to pull out
And my soul is yours to slowly rip apart

I can't trust anyone I meet
From now on, my chest feels more like
A fist wrapped in blood

. . .

Requiem

[No lyrics]

. . .


In solitude I wander....
Through the vast enchanted forest
The surrounding skies are one
Torn apart by the phenomenon of lightning
Rain is pouring down my (now) shivering shoulders
In the rain my tears are forever lost

The darkened oaks are my only shelter
Red leaves are blown by the wind
An ebony raven now catches my eye
Sitting in calmness
Before spreading his black wings
Reaching for the skies

In this forest
Where wolves cry their agony unto the moon
My spirit is hidden
In the form of wisdom
carved on a black stone
The only way to follow

Open your soul
Redeem, I am immortal

Blinded by a light
My soul is held up in glory
I engulf the skies
The apostle in triumph

Through the eternal flame I travel
As the rain keeps falling...
