all It Dies Today lyrics



My Promise
Let's seal this greeting with the passion from a razor's kiss.
Compassion, a virtue never synonymous with this name.
Now my gaze pierces two sets of somber eyes,
Of which only dreams had brought in yesteryear.
My misery, my bane, and my envy personified.
I will take everything from you.
I will replicate an assembled heart, forged from your collective agony,
And I will tear away until there are but two beating hearts before me.
I will tear away, for my greatest triumph lies in the:
Fear, loathing, resentment, and spite
Will scourge them both for the rest of their wretched days.back to top
Severed Ties Yield Severed Heads
The eve of my collapse I was feeling slightly murderous,
So I intercepted Cupid's arrow.
With passion and precision I severed the pig's head.
[chorus:] It's the way she looks at me and
Possesses me to collect the head of anyone,
Collect the head of those who look her way.
It's the way her whispers seems to kiss my ear,
I'd collect the head of anyone,
Collect the head of those graced by her voice.[/chorus]
Her mournful screams were like a melody of unimaginable beauty.
I forced her hand in mine as we danced to her song of lament.
Oh how I reveled in the gratification,
This slaying of a most loathsome one.
[chorus]
Dance, dance with me tonight,
So you may see what our "truest" love has made of me.
[chorus]back to top
The Radiance
This room is stark and this bed is unfamiliar.
My only company tonight is this tattered photograph,
Which simply serves as a reminder of everything that I have lost.
[chorus:] The radiance of the stars in the sky seems meaningless.
Without your pictures in my mind to reflect their images it's meaningless.
Until you open up your eyes and turn away.[/chorus]
I long for sleep so that I may visit you in my dreams tonight.
It seems to be the closest that I come to catch their glow in your eyes.
[chorus]
I wish I could just stop missing you,
But you're all I have that gives all the meaning to the beauty in the sky.
The radiance, it's meaningless.
[chorus]
The radiance, it's meaningless.
Until you open up your eyes and turn away.back to top
The Depravity Waltz
Today is the end of tolerance.
May the blood of the wicked wash away
The ruins of this frozen metropolis.
Their perversions are to blame for this,
Their perversions have blackened what's left of my heart.
Yeah, I suffocate, I suffocate, suffocate in my self righteousness.
Today is the end of forgiveness,
For no one will be spared when sulphur rains again.
And while sinners repent, I waste away so joyously.
The cities reduce to ash in the wake of oblivion.
I suffocate, I suffocate, suffocate in my self righteousness.
End it all, put an end to the injustice.
Open the skies above, and wipe this race away.
Wipe this race away. there is nothing pure in this world.
The human race wiped away.back to top
A Threnody for Modern Romance
Yo ppl it me paul all i can say is that this song kicks some huge ass!


alas here is your serenade my darling that leaves you speechless and weak
may it teach you how to feel
may it remedy your heartlessness
and may your cries not interrupt this swansong
this is a call to arms for all who recognize romance as
as a dying scene
who'll take it to their graves
this is a call to arms for all who hold this sacrament close
may our hearts burn on
how dare you weep
for it's insincerity that trickles down your face
alas here is your serenade my darling
and oh what a long time coming it has been
this cruel lullaby that shall plague your dreams
and carry me towards revolution
this is a call to arms for all who recognize romance as
as a dying scene
who'll take it to their graves
this is a call to arms for all who hold this sacrament close
may our hearts burn on
I'll sing for you the thernody of modern romance
this is a call to arms for all who recognize romance as
as a dying scene
who'll take it to their graves
this is a call to arms for all who hold this sacrament close
may our hearts burn onback to top
Marigold
Aesthetic perfection has fooled me once again.
You'll always be the only one who feels like home.
And with your hollow words and your plastic smile,
You have the most beautiful name I've ever cursed.
Yet I wait for you to find your way into my arms.
[chorus:] And I'd wait here till you find your way.
I would wait here all my life,
I'd spend the rest of my days praying
For an end to this mystery.[/chorus]
Through this dichotomy has brought me to my knees.
You'll always be the only one who feels like home.
And still the season's change and with it does your charm.
Summer's end has come and with it misery.
Yet I wait for you to find your way into my arms.
[chorus]
You must find a way back into my arms again,
I'd give anything just to feel that warmth again.
[chorus]back to top
Freak Gasoline Fight Accident
All hail the unseen one who dances in the shadows.
Hidden from everyone in a veil of joyousness.
Bathing in the darkness exuding from the very bowels of mankind.
With such longanimity had he tolerated the atrocity known as man.
[chorus:] And when the world finally comes to an end,
He'll simply laugh and smile for he would take such comfort,
In knowing that there would be no tomorrow.[/chorus]
He'd take such comfort in knowing we will never see another day.
And for their degeneration,
Mankind will finally know what it means to suffer.
Understand that he is hopeless.
He is bitter, and he is filled with great spite.
From witnessing first hand man's decline,
He is simply hopeless, he is bitter and filled with great spite.
[chorus]
Here's bidding farewell to a loathsome world.back to top
The Caitiff Choir: Revelations
Can you hear them?
Their weary screams of agony,
Traveling back,
From the blackest regions of their hereafter.
You may have to hollow me
To understand this mortal blasphemy.
We are born of the blackest hearts:
We all are heirs to the morningstar.
Do you hear the caitiff choir?
Faithful to none but themselves.
Now do you see them?
Can you see me now?
Can you see that we are...?
Born of the blackest hearts,
We are all heirs to the morningstar.
Disheartening, isn't it
To find that man is inherently perverse.
Disheartening, isn't it
That man is inherently evil.
Do you hear the caitiff choir,
Faithful to none but themselves?
We are of the blackest hearts;
We all are heirs to the morningstar.back to top
Our Disintegration
This sense of cynicism will eat me alive,
Long before the waking dead will ever get their chance.
For I'd sooner litter the earth with our corpses,
Then allow them to dine upon this flesh.
[chorus:] I must convey,
In this life nothing can last forever.[/chorus]
Will you fly with me tonight?
I promise you towards the heavens.
And as we gaze down from this midnight's sky,
I'd laugh and say they almost seem to be so lucid.
[chorus]
An amaranth shall mark our tombs,
For this love's eternal.
I beg of you my only saving grace.
Please take my life tonight, let's disintegrate.
[chorus]
This love, it is eternal.
Even in death it will not fade.back to top
Naenia
Ignite the funeral pyre,
And let's close the casket lid on everything.
On this institution and on every memory burn it all in effigy.
Let's watch it burn.
[chorus:] Fell into the depths of a broken heart again,
And I'll die alone, but I get lost in your eyes,
And I can't help but feel like I'll never find love there again.[/chorus]
Dressed in white you mourned nothing,
As you led the precession with a smile.
There was no eulogy given,
For no kind words could be conjured up this time.
No not a single word of praise had escaped from your lips.
On that day, there was no more need
To conjure up things that made things seem ok.
[chorus]
As you walk on, ash falls like snow.
Can you express regret? Or just let a smile show.
Please just walk on.
Don't respond, I already know.
[chorus]back to top
The Caitiff Choir: Defeatism
Surrender and know I've failed you.
Now let the darkness swallow you whole.
Nothing could ever compensate,
For what I've done to you.
Tell me, is there any recollection of a time,
Before the abhorrent smell of death,
Masked all the sugary scents of springtime...
And these apparitions led me astray,
Into the bowels of perdition?
[chorus:] Together, we created a world void sunlight:
Darkness fell, as we walked away.[/chorus]
Before an individual so cavalier, yet so depraved,
Laid you down upon the shores of Acheron.
Before we became immersed in iniquity.
[chorus]
And as we walked away,
The sky, it seemed to turn to black.
We did create an environment that's oh so dolent,
But I'd give anything to change these memories
Back to reality and return us to the light.
[chorus]
Surrender, and know I've failed you.
Now let the darkness swallow you whole.
Nothing could ever compensate,
For what I've done to you.
Now walk away and end our days.back to top
