The Lost Souls
If you, can't stand,
upon the water I will see you on the ocean floor
When you blink do you only find
the misery between those eyes so take my hand and walk with me

Come to me your sanctuary,
I'll gladly accept the gift that I've been granted
If you, feel fine,
give it just a little time I'm sure you'll contract my disease


Look, what you've done, to me now,
you've made me perfect!
Look, what you've done, to me now...

If you, can't stand,
upon the earth then I see you on the other side
When you blink do you only find,
the misery weighs down you're eyes so take my side and sleep with me

Look, what you've done, to me now,
you've made me perfect!
Look, what you've done, to me now...

take my hand, I'll be everything, to you...
take my hand, I'll take everything, from you...
I will a-sleep under your skin I will,
I will a-hold onto your heart I will,

Look, what you've done, to me now,
you've made me perfect!
Look, what you've done, to me now...
(repeat 1x)

what have you done,
what have you done,
what have you done,
what have you done,
now!back to top
The Nephilim
Swing the sadness, tears of joy.
Curse the sunlight, arsenic for the girls and boys
Drink the maddness, smoke so coy
smile injection

Serum of a will destroyed
serum of a will
serum of a will destroyed...

The seasons change, change without me.
I remain, in shadows growing wings
The spirit song, still surrounds me,
(in refrain), in shadows growing wings

Swing the sadness, tears of joy.
Curse the sunlight, arsenic for the girls and boys
Drink the maddness, smoke so coy
smile injection

Serum of a will destroyed
serum of a will
serum of a will destroyed...

The seasons change, change without me.
I remain, in shadows growing wings
The spirit song, still surrounds me,
(in refrain), in shadows growing wings

Like an angel, with a broken wing, reach to the sky again
Like the devil, meant for better things,
I will find my place on high

The seasons change, change without me.
I remain, in shadows growing wings
The spirit song, still surrounds me,
(in refrain), in shadows growing wings

Ever and a Day
Lie in the comfort, of sweat calamity,
with nothing left to lose
Lie int the darkness, I'm slowly drown to sleep
with nothing left to lose

the tears I saved for you..

I retrace the steps that led me here
but nothing lives behind me
so I lie in the feild
and in the light that loves me
with nothing left to lose
the tears I saved for you..

Will you be my, be my beloved
will you help, help me to get through
Will you be my, be my destruction
will you help, help me to be through

Will you be my, be my beloved
will you help, help me to get through
Will you be my, be my destruction
will you help
the tears I saved for you..back to top
Sacrifice Theory
AFI - Sacrifice Theroy




Hear one thousand screams.
Hear one thousand voices.
A solitary echo.
Feel one thousand pains,
But one is receiving a bloody invitation.

Do you want to feel the warmth?
To taste the life, to taste the life
Do you want taste the life?
To taste the life, to taste the life flow?
Go, Go

Feel one thousand lost,
sinking into soft skin.
Ingest rejuvenation.
One to consume,
One to renew.
Demanded invitation.

Do you want to feel the warmth?
To taste the life, to taste the life
Do you want taste the life?
To taste the life, to taste the life flow?

I offer grace,
I offer blood.
I offer everything till my heart is crystal clear.
I offer grace,
I offer blood.
I offer everything till my heart is crystal clear.

Let me taste the life flow.

Do you want to feel the warmth?
To taste the life, to taste the life
I want to taste the life.
To taste the life, to taste the life flow.
Go, Go, Woah, Goback to top
Of Greetings and Goodbyes
Now ending discreetly, just like a hidden sin,
as I go under please tuck me in.
Make me invisible.
This hidden explosion calls for a wandering cast with no direction.
Enter all monsters let us twist another fairy tale.
Go kill the lights, we'll glow till morning comes.
I'll say goodnight and bow to everyone.
Then we go under.
The beauties are sleeping as fruit just rots away.
Today go hungry.
Let it begin.
Make me invincible.
There was a weeping I carried down today, a sigh worth keeping.
Deep within divinity let's star another secret show.
No need to worry it is just another monster.
No need to fear here in the secret show.
No need to worry I am just another monster.
In you, I'll see me, in the secret show.back to top
Smile
Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly,
now I have come to be the walking enmity.
Assimilate into a culture of post morality, from what I've seen, I hate humanity.
Rot with repulsion. I'll write the world a brand new song.
Look upon your bleak creation,
but is it truly me that's to be the human blasphemy?
I'll set the world on fire and,
in burning light I'll write my first love song and I will feel warmth.
Hide your eyes in heaven, in the lies.
Believe. Relieve. I'll end the world tonight.
Overwhelmed with a deep repulsion for sights seen so commonly,
now I have come
to be a walking enmity, for humanity,
the human blasphemy,
I'll end the world tonight.back to top
A Story at Three
Again and again they blend into one,
My father the morning pushes through moonlight love.
So what's sleep? sleep.
I'm tired, so tired, but it seems that there's someone here with me.
We are the wakeful, wry, watchful.
We're awaiting.
Deathless ones.
A story at three with the shrillest of cries.
My mind fights with the sparkles in the corner of my eyes.
I hear the morning choir sing to me their elegy.
So beautiful.
They sing to me their elegy.

The Days of the Phoenix
I remember when
I was told a story of
Crushed velvet candle wax
And dried-up flowers
The figure on the bed
All dressed up in roses calling
Beckoning to sleep
Offering a dream

The words were as mystical as purring animals
The circle of rage, the ghosts on the stage appeared
Time was so tangible, I'll never let it go
Ghost-stories handed down reached secret tunnels below
No one could see me

OH - I fell into yesterday
OH - our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay
OH - I fell into fantasy

The words were as mystical as purring animals
The circle of rage, the ghosts on the stage appeared
Time was so tangible, I'll never let it go
Ghost-stories handed down reached secret tunnel below
No one could see me

OH - I fell into yesterday
OH - our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay
OH - I fell into fantasy

The girl on the wall was always waiting for me
And she was always smiling
The teenage death boys
The teenage death girls
And everyone was dancing
Nothing could touch us then
No one could change us then
And everyone was dancing
Nothing could hurt us then
No joe could see us then
And everyone was dancing
Everyone was dancing
No one could see me

OH - I fell into yesterday
OH - our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay
OH - I fell into fantasy
Our dreams seemed not far away
Our dreams seemed not far away
Our dreams seemed not far away
I fell into fantasyback to top
Catch a Hot One
AFI - Cath A Hot One




Let's tap your heart so we can paint the walls,
and see if anybody likes the tone or the pain.
The hungry eyes waiting for life flash,
now they're gonna see it.
Open your veins so we can make a pool and bathe,
and see if anyone complains of the stain.
Let's strip you down so we can see you old scars.
Now you're gonna feel it. Show me how to shine now.
Have you ever turned to dust? I saw an insect learn to fly;
its form was scorned. Have you ever seen the kingdom of the flys?
I saw it stay in sovereignty. Have you lost the sense of touch?
Have you ever turned to dust?
Let's lift you up so we can see how fast you fall.
We always thought that you could fly; now you'll crawl.
The lack of loyalty you thought you once felt, now you're gonna feel it.
Now show me how to shine.back to top
Wester
When I first heard this song I had no clue what Jade, Hunter, and Adam
were chanting towards the end of the song. I found the lyrics in an old
interview. So here you be.




I can feel you waiting for me when the sun retreats to the hills,
And I, beneath the blanket of a burning sky, wrap myself within.
Embraced by dead leaves as the rain leaves a trail of black down my face,
I creep through the twilight to that hidden place beyond the lonely.

I'll meet you tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us now.

I can feel you dreaming of me
And the time when our steps are retraced,
And I creep through the twilight to that hidden place beyond the lonely.
I'll meet you.

Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us...

I can feel you dreaming of me.
I can feel you dreaming...
I can feel you dreaming of me.
Beneath a dream, beneath a dream.

One world away.
I can feel you dreaming of me.
We were just one world away.
I can feel you dreaming...
In silent rapture let us stay...
I can feel you dreaming of me.
One world away.
Lost in a dream, lost in a dream.

Oh, tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers when no one's around.
Nothing can stop us now.
Tonight in the whispers where we won't be found.
Nothing can stop us...

6 to 8
Six figures enter; they've come to destroy the world.
They've called together this storm almost every night.
I awake in another place. A familiar voice with a stranger's face
speaks more unheard words. What new friends will the day bring?
One for one thousand acquainted. What new home will the night bring?
When it all comes down you just throw the bones.
On the way I saw five hours of sleep but your fire,
makes it all worth while. On the way I wrote words for you to keep.
On the way, I saw myself. Lost myself along the way.back to top
The Despair Factor
Along the path where the stream is talking,
I breathe the mist and continue walking.
The wood it whispers in a language of it's own.
As a sigh escaped my lips,
I feel the light caress of fingertips that,
steal away the breath and leave me on my own.

Waiting by the stairs. (Waiting, I despair)
Waiting, I despair. (Waiting by the stairs)

My whole life is a dark room.
One, big, dark room.

Do I hear the hollow sound,
Footsteps resounding on this frozen ground,
Or the familiar disappointment of the echoes of my own?

Waiting by the stairs. (Waiting i despair)
Waiting, I despair. (Waiting by the stairs)

[whispers:]
Somehow I ended up here in between,
Where there is always the comfort,
Of knowing I'll never be seen.
When I fall
When I fall
I wait for just one touch,
And I fall

Weightless,
Endless,
Faithless, I'll adore you.
A single touch, before I fade. Painless let me pass through.
Weightless,
Endless,
Faithless, I'll adore you.
A single touch, before I fade. Painless let me pass through.back to top
Morningstar
AFI - Mourning star



I saw a star beneath the stair
glowing through the melted wall
who will be the first to begin their fall
or will we become one


(chorus)
Am i the star beneath the stair
Am i the ghost upon the stage
Am i your anything

I saw a star beneath the stairs
Glowing bright before descent
And in the mourning there is nothing left
but whats inside of me

(chorus)X2




And i dont want to
die tonight (better believe in me)
and i dont want to
fall into the light

Will you wish upon
will you walk upon me
I dont want to die tonight

Will you believe in me tonight.......
Am i the star beneath the stair
Am i the ghost upon the Stage
Am i your anything

Am i the star beneath the stair
Am i the ghost upon the Stage
Am i your anythingback to top
