Bleeding Mascara
Go!
Ahhhhhh!
A Wraith with an Angel's body.
A demon with the smile of gold
You soul sucker
I won't become like you

A killer with the perfect weapon
Crystal eyes and her heart of gold
You soul sucker
I won't lose myself in you

[chorus]
Look how pretty she is
When she falls down
And there's no beauty in
Bleeding Mascara
Lips are quivering
Like a withering rose
She's back again!

What the fuck do you think love means?
It's much more than words and feelings
sucking me dry,
Is my marrow that sweet?

Your dead lovers have left a trail of broken hearts and misspent hopes.
sucking them dry
Does their marrow taste of Sweetness...
Sweetness... Sweetness? I hope you choke.

She's Back A-
She's Back Again!
She's back...back to top
Right Side of the Bed
come on!
i can see her now.
dancing round, her drink in hand
all the baggage in tow
i just wanna fuckin let her go

all my luck has turned to pain
i take your guilt and reflect it into me
and now i kiss it goodbye
our last dance, and a fatal lie

who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight
have you ever cried so hard, maybe youll just die (youll just die!)
who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight?
have you ever cried so hard, have you ever cried so hard?

there she goes again
another masquerade of our circumstance
she'll fuck you just for the taste
i just wish that i could replace
all the memories of
what makes my blood run cold
let the blood run through me
i say goodbye to what we had!

who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight?
have you ever cried so hard, maybe youll just die (youll just die!)
who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight?
have you ever cried so hard, have you ever cried so hard?

she came and went
and on through my hands
but i stared in her eyes and saw some pieces that say goodbye
sometimes when your holdin on, you never see the light!


the flowers in her hair
case and point with dead lovers eyes
she never looked so good, and i never felt so right(2x)
never felt so right(2x)


the flowers in her hair
case and point with dead lovers eyes
she never looked so good, and i never felt so right!!

Who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight?
have you ever cried so hard, maybe youll just die (youll just die!)
Who's sleeping on my side of the bed tonight?
have you ever cried so hard, have you ever cried so hard?
YOULL JUST DIE

Atreyu

This Flesh A Tomb

I feel eyelashes on my cheek
THEY LACERATE MY FLESH
A PAIN SO GOOD
So put your hand in mine
Never let go
NEVER WAKE UP 'CAUSE I'M DONE WITH PROMISES
I'M TAKING BLOOD OATHS
FEELS LIKE YOU COULD KISS
MY IMPERFECTIONS
MY IMPERFECTIONS AWAY
AND I WOULD STAND
STAND BY YOUR SIDE UNTIL THE SUN TURNS THE SKY
ALL THE COLORS I SEE IN YOUR EYES

And I'll never need to see the sun again
There's enough light in your eyes to light up our little world
So take me
Take me away
Kill me slowly
I'LL NEVER BE THE SAME

I swear to you, on everything I am
AND I DEDICATE TO YOU ALL THAT I HAVE
And I promise you that I'll stand right by your side
FOREVER AND ALWAYS UNTIL THE DAY I DIE

THE BITE MARKS ON MY NECK NEVER FELT SO GOOD
I'M LOSING CONTROL AND IT'S ALL THAT I CAN DO
NOT TO BLACKOUT
FALL INTO LUST WITH YOU
YOUR KISSES INFECT ME
THE DARK GIFT IS LOVING YOU

And I'll never need to see the sun again
There's enough light in your eyes to light up our little world
So take me
Take me away
Kill me slowly
I'll never be the same (I'LL NEVER BE THE SAME)

And I feel immortal and I want to make you feel the same
SO STAND BY ME
As we immolate
We can burn in each other's arms

And I feel immortal and I want to make you feel the same
SO STAND BY ME
As we immolate (AS WE IMMOLATE)
We can burn in each other's arms (WE CAN BURN IN EACH OTHER'S ARMS)back to top
You Eclipsed by Me
I began my ascent at minue zero
You made so sure of that
You tried to keep me down here
Your complacency has been your downfall
Nobody made you king of the world
And I'm here to dethrone you
So kiss the ring motherfucker
It's my time, my time to shine
Grasping for the straws as they fall
Maybe you can make a splint for your broken ego
For your broken ego

So I say thank you for the scars
And the guilt and the pain
Every tear I've never cried
Has sealed your fucking fate
What did you take me for, a fool?
Or were you just too blind to see
That every effort made has failed
And there is no destroying me?

Hate can be a positive emotion
When it forces you to better yourself
You built me, constructed my desire
Perfected my hatred
Now I'm driven to be ten times better than you think you are
Ten times better than you think you are
Piece by piece I've built my walls
And burned the bridges down
That lead back to people like you
So full of malice, so full of scorn
You tried your best to crush my spirit
You tried to steal my soul
You pushed my back against the wall
And I broke it down
I will not be broken
Though I am the one who bleeds

I will not be broken
I am the oneback to top
The Crimson
here is the correct version.the other version has alot of mistakes.

i feel it welling up inside
and Robert Smith lied
boys do cry
and with blood tears in my eyes
im an Anne Rice novel come to life
i cant hide the monster
anymore
one can only feel desolate for so long
until
one starts to change into something
the mirror doesn't recognize
i metamorphosize
the darkness has
been biding its time
to claim its latest victim
fresh meat for carnal desires
to become what I became
i viewed the sun for the last time

will you still hold me
when you see what i have done?
will you still kiss me the same
when you taste my victims blood?
so crimson and red
I feel it flowing from your lips
crimson and red
my heart is dead and so are you

and it pulses through
the desire to change
to deconstruct all of my
all of my past failings
but where to begin
because when you live in sin
its hard to look at saints without them
reflecting your jet black auras back at you
and all i have is hope
my inner burns not fading
i wipe the blood from my cheek
and get on with my day

will you still hold me
when you see what i have done?
will you still kiss me the same
when you taste my victims blood?
so crimson and red
I feel it flowing from your lips
crimson and red (my heart is dead and so are you)

and all i have is hope
and all i need is time
to bury in pine under six feet of time
the lies i told me about myself
claw my way out
pick the splinters from under my fingernails
i won't lose hope
i won't give in

just live and breathe
try not to die again
just live and breathe
try not to die again
just live and breathe
try not to die again
I try not to die again

will you still hold me
when you see what i have done?
will you still kiss me the same
when you taste my victims blood?
so crimson and red
i feel it flowing from your lips
crimson and red
my heart is dead and so are you

will you still hold me
when you see what i have done?
will you still kiss me the same
when you taste my victims blood?
so crimson and red
i feel it flowing from your lips
my heart is dead and so are youback to top
The Remembrance Ballad
These days are closing in.
the end has become apparent.
We're only here for so long.
Will anyone remember my name
when time has washed away the dust of our ashes?
When my head rests in a velvet lined casket?
What's out there?
What is my eternal fate?
It only just recently hit me that this life is just a state.
Mortality fading,
Like the innocence of love,
I'm scared to death of whats to become...

Of my immortal soul Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens when my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul?
What of my soul?

All those things you couldnt say you should have said
(you should have said)
All those "I love you's" lost,
weighed more like lead on your chest (2x)

Of my immortal soul Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens when my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul?
What of my soul?

What if i could take back all those misspent days?
Every second of anger, I would wash my sins away.

Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens when my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul?
What of my soul?(2x)back to top
Corseting
Just swallow the pill and think of me no longer
Just let go and take yourself out
Before I kill you too
Aren't you tired of my fucking you over and over?
You were the last person I wanted in my sights
And my heart honestly breaks when I think of you
I understand now what I-love-you means -
It's doing the right thing no matter of the consequence

I'm tying you up, using the nicest lace
Trying to kill you softly, trying to erase your face

All the while I'm doing my best
Not to rub my love against your head
I'd redecorate the walls with your inner thoughts
But I'm afraid it's the wrong shade of red
But I have these sadistic urges
And I don't want to take it out on you

Right now you're the only one who understands my plight
Right now you're the only reason
I can't sleep through the nightback to top
Demonology and Heartache
So unaffectionate, so insecure
You claim to know a thing or two about heartache
And what it's like to have your insides torn out
And I believe you
I see it every time your pallbearer's palor is obscured by the darkness
Dancing across your face, and when the blackness veils your eyes in pain
I know what it's like when memories make you wince
And love letters read like obituaries
And photo albums are the books of the dead
I need no reminders, no more reminders
I'll forget the past and lay it to rest

If I had my way
I'd cut the calluses off your breaking heart
If I could get past the sternum
Cauterize those wounds with
Every kiss I could give to you
I'm holding your heart in my hand
The reason it still beats

Am I being too cryptic?
Am I being too obscure?
Love kills, romance is dead
And I don't even trust myself
But I love you
And you can pull my wings apart
And pin me down under glass
Until the end of days if it can help you
Discover that we share the same pain
I just hope you write your thesis
Before your subject is dead
No life after deathback to top
My Sanity on the Funeral Pyre
Paranoia is the insect working its way
Through my subconscious thoughts
It's the larve of self doubt
Gestating in my heart as I spiral down
And everything I touch is breaking
And it falls to earth in splinters
And I shiver as every splinter
Finds its way underneath my skin
And after 22 years I can still make my skin crawl
Every shortcoming, a pitfall
On my way to making amends
Within myself to be what I became

Sometimes it feels like the whole wide world
Has made itself my enemy
But I will stand upon my own two feet
And raise my head up

I lick my wounds
Trying to cleanse the infection
Rabid and diseased reality fades away
When I pushed myself too far
A dream of emotional perfection
Has left a wounded heart
Trying to perceive the gifts inherent inside me
It's like squeezing the trigger
It's like opening first
On everyone who's let me down
On every beautiful lie that is only fiction
For the first time
I'm losing control and I like it
Freedom feels like the noose is goneback to top
Nevada's Grace
In this perfection I lament her beauty
Her voice a sout note in this bitter serenade
And all those things I could have would have should have said
Ring out like gunshots across long lose days
If that wasn't love then what the fuck was I thinking?
I would bear my soul just to bask in your grace
And your beauty, your strength inspires all of my days
I would carry any load just to bear your cross for a day
Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
And your strength is my backbone when I feel every bone break

It takes my breah away how you took my breath away
How could I know that you would take my breath away?
How could I know one kiss would change everything?back to top
Five Vicodin Chased With a Shot of Clarity
After all this time of asking questions
Of trying to find something to quiet this soul
I'm left alone within my mind into this self-made hell I delve
It's not as hot as you think
More so dark and cold with no room to breathe

I'm sorry, I don't think it's going to be okay this time
My heart has skipped its final beat
It's beating me down onto the floor
That must mean that the pills are working
The glass isn't half empty this time
I smashed it to the ground a long long time ago
It shattered when it fell and I broke to pieces
Each shard's another reason, another way to give up

This skin is so tight that the air can't reach my brain
There is nothing telling my heart to beat any faster
To let me scream for help, I will never give up
I will never take the easy way out

This is life
This is struggle
This is love
This is warback to top
