Miseria Cantare- The Beginning
Love your hate, your faith lost
You are now one of us
Love your hate, your faith lost
You are now one of us

Nothing from nowhere, I'm no one at all
Radiate, recognize one silent call
As we all form one dark flame... Incinerate

Nothing from nowhere, I'm 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
Love your hate, your faith lost
You are now one, one of usback to top
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 esta-do agui 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
So what befalls the flawless?
Look what I've built, it shines so beautifully
Now watch as it destroys me

Y regreso agui otra vez y comienzo

To... break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all behind, and never said goodbye
I left it all to die

I saw it's birth, I watched it grow
I felt it change me
I took the life, I ate it slow
Now it consumes me

I... break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Break down, and cease all feeling
Burn now, what once was breathing
Reach out, and you may take my heart away

Bleed Black
Bleed Black BY AFI

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.back to top
Silver and Cold
I, I came every day
And found you, found you on the way
Now, it is silver and silent
It is silver and cold
You in somber respendence
I hold

Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one
Your sins into me
Every wonderous voice
Escapes our trembling prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one

Life, like the flutter of wings
Feel your hallow bones
Into me, as your longing to say
So I, I will paint you in silver
I will wrap you in cold
I will lift up your forces aside

Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one
Your sins into me
As your wonderous voice escapes
I will tremble in prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me

Cold in lifes throw
I fall asleep for you
Cold in lifes throw
I only ask you turn away
Cold in lifes throw
I fall asleep for you
Cold in lifes throw
I only ask you turn
As your see, into me
Oh my beautiful one

Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one
Your sins into me
As your rapterous voice escapes
I will tremble in prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me

Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one
Your sins into me
As your rapterous voice escapes
I will tremble in prayer
And I'll beg for forgiveness
Your sins into me
Your sins into me
Your sins into
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful oneback to top
Dancing Through Sunday
Will you join me in this dance of misery,
cradled in impossibility?
Swooning, I am swept away, swept off my feet.
With step-by-step we take the lead as
drop-by-drop we start to bleed.

And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
And we dance in misery, all lost in the arms of our misery.
And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
Swept off our feet by our 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 separate, while
breath-by-breath I suffocate.

And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
And we dance in misery, all lost in the arms of our misery.
And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
Swept off our feet by our misery, we're swept into shadows.

So who will follow?
Who is the 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.

And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
And we dance in misery, all lost in the arms of our misery.
And we dance in misery (and we dance on)
Swept off our feet by our misery, we're swept into shadows.
Swept off our feet by our misery, we're swept into shadows.back to top
Girl's Not Grey
ill 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?
who 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 it could be found
ill lay me down tonight much further down
watcht the stars go out tonight
on sinking ground ill lay me downback to top
Death of Seasons
of late its harder just to go outside
to leave this deadspace with hatred so alive
writhing with sickness
thrown into banality, i decay
killed by the wekaness, but forced to return
turn it off, watch the stars as they fall from the sky
i held a fallen star and it wept for me, dying
i feel the fallen stars encircle me now, as they cry
out there so quickly grows malignant tribes
posthuman extinction excels unrecognized
felling surrounded, so bored with mortality, i decay
all of this hatred is fucking real
turn it on
it wont be alright despite what they say
just watch the stars tonight as they disappear, disintegrate
and i disintegrate cause this hate is fucking real
and i hope to shade the world as the stars go out and i disintegrateback to top
The Great Disappointment
AFI - The Great Dissapointment




I can remember
A place I used to go
Chrysanthmums of white
They seemed so beautiful
I can remember
I searched for the amaranth
I'd shut my eyes, to see

Oh, how I smiled then
So near the cherished ones
I knew they would appear...
Saw not a single one
Oh, how I smiled then
Waiting so patiently
I'd make a wish, and bleed

While I waited I was wasting away
While I waited I was wasting away

I can remember
Dreamt them so vividly
soft creatures draped in white
Light kisses gracing me
I can remember
When I realized dreams
Were only the only place to see them

While I waited I was wasting away
While I waited I was wasting away
While I waited I was wasting away
Hope was wasting away
Faith was wasting away
I was wasting away

I never, never wanted this
I always wanted to believe
I never, never wanted this
I cannot ever become
I never,never wanted this
But from the start I'd been decieved
I never, never wanted this
I cannot ever become
I never, never wanted this
I always wanted to believe
I never, never wanted this
Ohhh
I never,never wanted this
But from the start I'd been decieved
I never, never wanted this
Whoa

Inside a crumbling effigy
But you promised
So dies all innocence
But you promised me...

While I waited I was wasting away
While I waited I was wasting away
While I waited I was wasting away
Hope was wasting away
Faith was wasting away
I was wasting awayback to top
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, going out forever unknown
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
(These waves of plastic fame are drying up and I smile)
You're going out, going out forever unknown
(Because you're dying to become forever unknown, unkown)

From above a rain of ashes descends
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 pantomime)

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're going out, going out forever unknown
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
(These waves of plastic fame are drying up and I smile)
You're going out, going out forever unknown
(Because you're dying to become forever unknown, unkown)

From above a rain of ashes descends
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

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
I'd stop it, had you a heart

From above a rain of ashes descends
Anathema I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion
Look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burnback to top
This 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 beg "May I cut in?" but they never stop playing
"their song"
Of a joyous soul they sing
I've heard whispers. On a freezing note, I resonate

Just like romantic verses
Just like a joyous end
Just like a memory: it twists me
Just like romantic verses
Just like a joyous end
Twisted me

You land as lightly as the snow
(Cinematic)
Onto the melting boy
(And melt away)
Your light is 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 realize I never began

(chorus)

All the colors upon leaving all will turn to grey
All the colors upon leaving all will turn to grey

(All grey!)
All the colors
(All grey!)
Upon leaving
(All grey!)
All will turn to grey
(repeat)

Twisted me

(chorus)

You land as lightly as the snow
(Cinematic)
You land as lightly as the snow
(And melt away)
You land as lightly as the snow
(Cinematic)
BATHED IN YOUR RADIANCE, I'LL MELT!!!back to top
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

It's hard to notice gleaming from the sky
When you're staring at the cracks
It's hard to notice what is passing by with eyes lowered

You... walked away, heard them say
"Poisoned hearts will never change, walk away again"

All the cracks will 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 I fell apart

As I... walked away, heard them say
"Poisoned hearts will never change"
Walked away again
Turned away in disgrace
Felt the chill upon my face cooling from withinback to top
...But Home Is Nowhere
We held hands on the last night on earth.
Our mouths filled with dust, we kissed in the fields and under the trees,
screaming like dogs, bleeding dark into the leaves.
It was empty on the edge of town but we knew everyone floated
along the bottom of the river.
So we walked through the waste where the road curved into the sea
and the shattered seasons lay,
and the bitter smellof poison was on you like a disease.
In our cancer of passion you said,"Death is a midnight runner."
The sky had come crashing down like the news of an intimate suicide.
We picked up the shards and formed them into shapes
of stars that wore like an antique wedding dress.
The echoes of the past broke the hearts of the unborn
as the ferris wheel silently slowed to a stop.
The few insects skittered away in hope of a better pastime.
I kissed you at the apex of the maelstrom and asked
if you would accompany me in a quick fall,
but you made me realize that my ticket wasn't good for two.
I rode alone.
You said,"The cinders are faling like snow."
There was poetry in dispair, and we sang with unrivaled beauty,
bitter elegies of savagery and eloquence.
Of blue and grey.
Strange, we ran down the desperate streets and carved our names into the flesh of the city.
The sun was stagnated somewhere beyond the rim of the horizon
and the darkness is a mystery of curves and lines.
Still, we lay under the emptiness and drifted slowly outward,
and somewhere in the wilderness we found salvation scratched
into the earth like a message.back to top
