as heaven burns

as heaven burns, this dream inside
breaks the frigid shell
liars gaze, my soul is razed
i'd rather burn in hell

so cold inside, my death is mine
nothing left to live by
liars code, my soul is sold
petrified, i'm dead on the inside

KILL THIS DREAM FROM THE DREAM INSIDE
(i have waited an eternity to watch it all die)
KILL THIS PAIN BURNING UP INSIDE
(got to find a way to heaven before i scorch the sky)
everything's an illusion to me
got to tear it apart just to set my mind free
i have to kill this dream from the dream inside of me

as heaven turns, upside down
the angels will rebel
without a trace, my mind is crazed
i'd rather burn in hell

so torn inside, i've crossed the line
dual natures collide
devil's code, down that sinful road
crucified, i'm dead on the inside


disintegrated

fight with futility
beyond any reason, beyond all doubt
lose touch with reality
adrift on a stormy sea, flirt with insanity
my eyes can't focus, mind grows numb
teetering on the edge of despair
it's all happening at once
it's all happening at once

i am disintegrated
obliterated
falling apart
as i turn my back on you
emancipated
driven to the edge of truth
falling down
i've nothing left to lose

writhe in agony
beyond any reason, beyond all doubt
lose faith in humanity
dive in the gaping breach, find not what you seek
my eyes can't focus, mind grows numb
whispering thoughts of despair
it's all happening now
it's all happening now

i am disintegrated
obliterated
falling apart
as i turn my back on you
emancipated
driven to the edge of truth
falling down
i've nothing left to lose


slave

are we the stream of life
or the fallen leaves drifting away?
[drifting away]
seek to find what motivates us
shapes us, quantifies us
struggle or surrender to the forces which act upon us

are we free or are we bound
by the chains of destiny?
are we slaves forever to ourselves;
and are we doomed to repeat history?

and when you meet the reaper
can you stand proud and tall?
[proud and tall]
slave to genetics, external conditioning
struggle or surrender to the weakness which preys upon you

are we free or are we bound
by the chains of apathy?
are we slaves forever to ourselves
or can we rise and take responsibility?

take a look inside
are you your worst enemy?
take a look inside

are we free or are we bound
by the chains of destiny?
are we slaves forever to ourselves;
and are we doomed to repeat history?
are we free or are we bound
by the chains of destiny?
are we slaves forever to ourselves;
and are we doomed to repeat history?
take a look inside

fragments

get up get up
get up get up, what?
life's not over, it's just now begun

get up get up
get up get up, what?
i step on the pieces of you

get up get up
get up get up, what?
accretion, rising stronger than before

get up get up
get up get up, what?
don't let me walk on the fragments of you

it's just now begun, the pieces of you
rising stronger than before, the fragments of you

rise up
head up
focus, get yourself together
rise up
you've had enough
ignite that hidden fire in you

core

vampiric kisses stole my strength from within
my time was wasted by your stealthy invasion
sensual seduction
you laid your trap with your liquid eyes

[with your liquid eyes]

insatiable seige, you've broken me down
you're my desert, i am your summer storm
sensual reduction
you clipped my wings, i am earthbound from the skies

[i am earthbound from the skies]

my will is broken
you cut me to the core
[with your liquid eyes]
you pour yourself
you've sunk into every pore
[you made me realize]
i never wanted
to walk in through your door
[i am earthbound from the skies]
you're never content
you've always wanted more
[you've broken me down before]

wake of destruction

burning towers falling
a world divided must pay this price
fallen symbols burning
fires of rage reflected in our eyes

reflected in our eyes

shock, awe, an eye for an eye
the dogs of war are hungry for life
shock, awe, an eye for an eye
when gods clash, its men who die

its men who die

aftermath of ashes
only memories left to sanctify
death takes flight
a flock of ravens takes to the skies
the blood of innocent lives
fuel for this deconstruction
everything must crumble and fall
in the wake, the wake of destruction


subtract

they say that one is the loniest number
its enough to make you wonder
why we try to assimilate another
we should have kept our distance from each other

they say its better to have loved and lost
i wasnt ready to face the cost
my soul is still and locked in frost
hoped for a better ending, my heart is crossed

i gave my soul
when you
joined your life to mine
[a sudden sound bloomed in me]
now your heart is cold
as you turn away
you subtract from mine
[lost and fading away]

in a moment, in a blink of an eye
my world fell down when you told me the truth
you failed to remember
that you promised me yourself forever

last emotion

drowning in the tears of always
from the eyes of the dead
perpetual darkness for an unknown face
without the eyes, without the grace
interrupting the sting of a roses thorn
bleeding the last emotion
a smile never to be smiled again
lost in forever, shards of a shattered soul
into the chasm they fall
thrown about in winds unwanted

bitter reminders of such a lonely day
what once was has gone away
they can never be regained
bleeding the last emotion

cherished reminders of such a lovely day
they have gone away
they can never be retained
bleeding the last emotion
