don't waste second thoughts be your own savior all the options line up in front of you but you get high on pure white you desperate seeker red lipstick on a mouth full lies now she's pulled you in and sucks you dry "just a little more faith in god" it's a make believe a bitter seed that won't grow a tree one life no respawn time flies and you're afraid to be here beyond all thinking where bodies 're melting you're the same as me you've lost all ambitions in this shared room your friends are fading fast and way too soon stop the sentimental talk it's irrelevant let us form an end out of something true she's a quiet quiet assassin she's a quiet (do you think you know?) assassin (do you think you it's real?) she's a quiet (do you think you're in control?) you're in her fucking palm do you think you're in control? one life no respawn time flies and you're afraid to be here beyond all thinking where bodies 're melting you're the same as me she's a quiet assassin

this is a warm welcome I'm utterly surprised but I can't suppress the pressure that's building at the base of my skull what are we waiting for? get it on what are we waiting for? let's get it on you're not really interested all this drivel leads to nowhere paralyzing ostentation of yourself you'll find my body tracks I can't fight the feeling the floor becomes the ceiling I'll bleed it out a self-explaining tragedy an homage to cain's heresy you're not really interested all this drivel leads to nowhere paralyzing ostentation of yourself you'll find my body tracks you're quite a doll perfect cut-out splendent whore covered my eyes buried the hope now I'll neutralize pain this place smells like hell you'll have to force me to inhale you were never interested all this drivel leads to nowhere paralyzing ostentation of yourself you'll find my body tracks

all the noise all the pain of life collides right here pounding hearts pulsating flesh full of gracious fear black eyes stare into a vicious grin the shame of a lifetime slowly digs its way under my skin
5.
pain you offer yet I refuse but sooner or later I'll accept the laughter mistress come on sentence me question identity I'll come up with an answer too complex to question suck it pedants eyes shall fall from the sky while your careless irreverence's peeling my skin and who I am nor who you are matters in this game you order I obey never underestimate the destructive power of change lately, all my precious thespian talents fail pain oh, let me suffer it's the sweetest disguise of all well, you're the obsession I'll never overcome a twelve-part confession seals: we all fall down sometime my tongue is an awful friend misery my only company regression
6.
I'd do anything for love she said the limitation in your mind is one you've set yourself the walls are getting closer this home's become my cage she yelled at me the more i try to focus the more we blur away she knew I was lost no I can't stay around here I've grown out of this skin I'll do anything for love I scream and shout I've broken the limitation in my head too late - she's gone there's no more time to focus it all just slips away now in sepia I see her majesty hail to the queen in sepia I see her majesty hail to the queen how close is the end? oh I'll stop to breath how close can I get? no you'll never leave how close? in sepia I see her majesty hail to the queen

all in all it's just a payback for the mess you have left for the mess that I'm in all in all it's just a paycheck I now wander with god into the wild I belong I can't find my feet
8.
silence we'll bail you out this is what we stand for the meaning you've turned us inside out now we're well prepared for the ending we won't compete
9.
Oh, I bit my tongue Oh, I faced a zillion standoffs faceless traveled endless miles with every step in search of answers well, the answer is that I cannot keep up with you sacred eye I cannot smother this emptiness no more show bones, they break as time fades away these streets have cleared my view I'm wide awake take a look at this house it's full of broken hearts and every room's a proof for what I am not seems like I've been growing old in timeless space you and I - we'll make it through the night it's really worth a try I'm sick of my sleepy eyes we'll run away a house doesn't make a home I caught a glimpse into the gloom and realized that I'm a permanent transient

you could take the action now you could take the action but you frown and fall to pieces sad testament of a life doused with lies head for the exit now head for the exit but you freeze and get replaced by others the captain sinks with his bottled ship but I guess that's what you do that's just something that you do remain in silence there she stands and lingers on her whole life is just based on these few minutes and thoughts oh, I thought I know her I'm anxious and striving to get away I must center myself it's a waiting game how to stand all this shit another day? no empathy my father fails I sense whatever I say she'll drift away we owe you something we owe you something real you could take the action now you could take the action but you frown and fall to pieces I'm driving out there I'm striving to get away I must center myself it's a waiting game how to stand all this shit another day? no empathy my father fails I sense whatever I say she'll drift away

this eloquent elegance sings me to sleep every note an ode to what I'll never ever be tranquilized head weighs heavy on her chest breathing deep her softest scent fills me with the warmth I've missed make your way through to me something pure is ours to see time took me here to search and pick up the parts of hundreds of hearts you once possessed I guess they're still beating in your chest make your way through to me something pure is ours to see make your way honesty nothing lasts nothing's safe from what once was to what will never be there's a bridge there's this bridge where are you ? all I can see is eight arms widely stretched into the sky all I can hear is three pounding hearts screaming goodbye Lusca's here
12.
we washed the core we built an end another mime a false pretense you think it'll preserve us from time a secret voice invites us in another game another win no - you can no more decide on what's right farewell my dear friend I'm not supposed to speak out loud that I am what you've made me it's the only truth I know but still I try and still you lie to me

seven more feet just seven more feet there's the edge take a drag and gaze into the chasm of perception seven more feet just seven more feet you've found the path of escape a firm route out tell me, how high did you think 'd you get? how far did they drag you away? It's still you I feel here the same old rush you're a bird flying up high you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end seven more feet just seven more feet there's the edge an insight in pure isolated noise tell me, how high did you think you'd get? how far did they drag you away? you're a bird flying up high you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end for you you're a bird flying up high you chose the saddest way of saying goodbye you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected lord I twist 'n' turn and hope it all makes sense in the end you're a mystery that reveals the unexpected you're a sign in the air you're the sound in the air the colors I bleed the symphony I feel you're the sum of all signs
