Going Under

Now I will tell you what I’ve done for you
50 thousand tears I’ve cried
screaming deceiving and bleeding for you
and you still won’t hear me
don’t want your hand this time I’ll save myself
maybe I’ll wake up for once
not tormented daily defeated by you

just when I thought I’d reached the bottom
I’m dying again

I’m going under
drowning in you
I’m falling forever
I’ve got to break through
I’m going under

blurring and stirring the truth and the lies

so I don’t know what’s real and what’s not
always confusing the thoughts in my head
so I can’t trust myself anymore
I’m dying again

I’m going under
drowning in you
I’m falling forever
I’ve got to break through

so go on and scream
scream at me I’m so far away
I won’t be broken again
I’ve got to breathe I can’t keep going under

Bring Me To Life

how can you see into my eyes like open doors

leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)

call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

now that I know what I’m without

you can’t just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)

call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

all this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don’t let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run

(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

(Bring me to life)
I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
(Bring me to life)

Everybody’s Fool

perfect by nature
icons of self indulgence
just what we all need
more lies about a world that

never was and never will be
have you no shame don’t you see me

you know you’ve got everybody fooled

look here she comes now
bow down and stare in wonder
oh how we love you
no flaws when you’re pretending
but now i know she

never was and never will be
you don’t know how you’ve betrayed me

and somehow you’ve got everybody fooled

without the mask where will you hide
can’t find yourself lost in your lie

i know the truth now
i know who you are
and i don’t love you anymore

it never was and never will be

you’re not real and you can’t save me
somehow now you’re everybody’s fool

My Immortal

my immortal
i’m so tired of being here
suppressed by all of my childish fears

and if you have to leave
i wish that you would just leave
because your presence still lingers here
and it won’t leave me alone

these wounds won’t seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there’s just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i’d wipe away all of your tears

when you’d scream i’d fight away all of your fears
and i’ve held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

you used to captivate me
by your resonating light
but now i’m bound by the life you left behind
your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

these wounds won’t seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there’s just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i’d wipe away all of your tears
when you’d scream i’d fight away all of your fears
and i’ve held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

i’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
and though you’re still with me
i’ve been alone all along

^back to top

Haunted

long lost words whisper slowly to me
still can’t find what keeps me here

when all this time i’ve been so hollow inside
i know you’re still there

watching me wanting me
i can feel you pull me down
fearing you loving you
i won’t let you pull me down

hunting you i can smell you – alive
your heart pounding in my head

watching me wanting me
i can feel you pull me down
saving me raping me
watching me

^back to top

Tourniquet

i tried to kill the pain

but only brought more
i lay dying
and i’m pouring crimson regret and betrayal
i’m dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved
am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
i’m dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved

am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will i be denied Christ

tourniquet
my suicide

Imaginary

i linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay

where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they’re falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don’t say i’m out of touch
with this rampant chaos – your reality

i know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
the nightmare i built my own world to escape

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights

oh how i long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light

Taking Over Me

you don’t remember me but i remember you
i lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
but who can decide what they dream?

and dream i do…

i believe in you
i’ll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you’re taking over me

have you forgotten all i know
and all we had?
you saw me mourning my love for you

and touched my hand
i knew you loved me then

i believe in you
i’ll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you’re taking over me

i look in the mirror and see your face
if i look deep enough

so many things inside that are just like you are taking over

Hello

playground school bell rings again
rain clouds come to play again
has no one told you she’s not breathing?
hello i’m your mind giving you someone to talk to

hello

if i smile and don’t believe
soon i know i’ll wake from this dream
don’t try to fix me i’m not broken
hello i’m the lie living for you so you can hide
don’t cry

suddenly i know i’m not sleeping
hello i’m still here

all that’s left of yesterday

My Last Breath

hold on to me love
you know i can’t stay long
all i wanted to say was i love you and i’m not afraid
can you hear me?

can you feel me in your arms?

holding my last breath
safe inside myself
are all my thoughts of you
sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

i’ll miss the winter
a world of fragile things
look for me in the white forest

hiding in a hollow tree (come find me)
i know you hear me
i can taste it in your tears

holding my last breath
safe inside myself
are all my thoughts of you
sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

closing your eyes to disappear

you pray your dreams will leave you here
but still you wake and know the truth
no one’s there

say goodnight
don’t be afraid
calling me calling me as you fade to black

^back to top

Whisper

catch me as i fall
say you’re here and it’s all over now
speaking to the atmosphere
no one’s here and i fall into myself
this truth drives me into madness
i know i can stop the pain if i will it all away

don’t turn away

don’t give in to the pain
don’t try to hide
though they’re screaming your name
don’t close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
don’t turn out the light
never sleep never die

i’m frightened by what i see

but somehow i know that there’s much more to come
immobilized by my fear
and soon to be blinded by tears
i can stop the pain if i will it all away

don’t turn away
don’t give in to the pain
don’t try to hide
though they’re screaming your name

don’t close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
don’t turn out the light
never sleep never die

fallen angels at my feet
whispered voices at my ear
death before my eyes
lying next to me i fear

she beckons me shall i give in
upon my end shall i begin
forsaking all i’ve fallen for i rise to meet the end
