Alesana lyrics

"The Emptiness" (2010)

Curse Of The Virgin Canvas lyrics - alesana

(I am here to tell you a story.
A story that will torture your thoughts by day and poison your dreams by night.
And though I will do my best, there are no words
that can be written nor brush strokes laid on canvas
that can describe the stark and utter horror of the night that Annabel died.
The emptiness will haunt you.)

This is a nightmare, is my Annabel really gone?
My eyes are stung by daylight, I find it hard to breathe.
Her body teases me as the sun reveals the dawn.
The smell of blood still crawls, I kiss you softly goodbye.

Baby, lay in my arms and cuddle me close.
Soon this will be just an awful memory...
Will I ever be able to sleep again?

My angel lie to me and tell me I'm dreaming.
(please wake me up, please wake me).
A girl like you will always be such a tragic part of me.
(oh ecstasy you torture me).

I watch the blood drip from the corners of your mouth.
Your icy flesh is lying, your pallid skin still glows.
I'm starting to believe what my eyes are seeing now.
You're still so beautiful and yet so morbidly still.

Baby, lay in my arms and cuddle me close.
Soon this will be just an awful memory...
Will I ever be able to sleep again?

My angel lie to me and tell me I'm dreaming.
(please wake me up, please wake me).
A girl like you will always be such a tragic part of me.
(oh ecstasy you torture me).

Sweet revenge... He will pay, he will pay my dear.
Empty eyes accuse a face so evil, I'm coming undone.
The mirror says it all, a crimson story of innocence lost.
Empty eyes accuse a face so evil, I'm coming undone.
What have I done to her?

So terribly memory returns of her struggle, of her screams, of her.
Lord forgive me!
My stomach heaves as I see the blood that covers me.
Blood that was once hers.
I'm a monster!

... Such an awful memory... Will I ever be able to sleep again?

My angel lie to me and tell me I'm dreaming.
(please wake me up, please wake me).
A girl like you will always be such a tragic part of me.
(oh ecstasy you torture me).

Sweet revenge... He will pay, he will pay my dear.

(A mirror never lies.
They know.
Everybody knows.
Do you not see what they see?
A mirror never lies.
I see what they see. Everybody knows. Everybody knows.)

The Artist lyrics - alesana

What is wrong with her eyes?
A glossy stare that won't leave me be starts my blood running cold.
A gaze that could make hell freeze over...
I have to understand she's gone...
But she's not!
Don't you tell me that she is dead!
Watch her lips softly move because she's still whispering to me!
...And something here is not quite right...

Skin so cold beneath my touch as I brush back her hair and close her eyes.
But I cannot stand to turn away.
When I do, she'll be gone...
It's frightening...

Sweaty hands will fail to lock the door...
They'll be here soon.
I wish I could keep my teeth from grinding.
I wish I'd stop looking behind me.
Running now will only make it worse...
They'll be here soon.
I wish I could shake the awful feeling.
I wish my mind would stop...

Maybe I am crazy and my mind is trying to deceive me.
As the ground vanishes I wonder will the sky be the next to fail me?
Paint abandons canvas.
And my brush can't seem to start again from scratch.
As I watch everything unravel, why should I even try to stop the collapse?
I won't...

Shaking as I rest her body down.
No one knows, only me...
It's frightening...

Sweaty hands will fail to lock the door...
They'll be here soon.
I wish I could keep my teeth from grinding.
I wish I'd stop looking behind me.
Running now will only make it worse...
They'll be here soon.
I wish I could shake the awful feeling.
I wish my mind would stop...

Maybe I am crazy and my mind is trying to deceive me.
As the ground vanishes I wonder will the sky be the next to fail me?
Paint abandons canvas.
And my brush can't seem to start again from scratch.
As I watch everything unravel, why should I even try to stop the collapse?
Why should I even try to stop the collapse? Why should I even try?

There's a madman glaring straight at me!
Oh I know I've seen his face before...
I am sure I've seen his face before...

Maybe I am crazy and my mind is trying to deceive me.
As the ground vanishes I wonder will the sky be the next to fail me?
Paint abandons canvas.
And my brush can't seem to start again from scratch.
As I watch everything unravel, why should I even try to stop the collapse?
I won't...

A Lunatic's Lament lyrics - alesana

If only you could see
If only you could see
You're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
If only you could see
If only you could see...

Should I apologize to such pathetic eyes
Just the sight of you has made me sick tonight (tonight)
It was your poison kiss that turned me into this
Then again there is a chance you could be mine tonight

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear...(I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
(Are you satisfied?)

What fate has led me here... Oh please forgive me dear
I don't know if I could survive on my own (my own)
I could have married you instead I buried you
Now I will see if I can fall asleep alone (alone)

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear...(I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
The nightmares coming true
(Are you satisfied?)
Girl it's only you
(Are you satisfied?)
I'm telling you the truth
(Are you satisfied?)

I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear...(I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

[Spoken:]
The depths of a mans soul can not be measured in a manor of meters
and fathoms; but rather, it is in my opinion, only quantified by his
proximity to haven and hell. It was in such a state I ushered myself
passed the town tavern, bursting at the seams with the sounds laughter
and drunken piano playing. Had it only been a different night, a
different place, a different kind of man passing by the threshold
of that innocent pub, the events that transpired at that point
would have undoubtedly been drastically different. I can only guess if
anyone outside that place had a clue when those exclamations of mirth became the
desperate screams of the helpless begging for their very lives

The Murderer lyrics - alesana

It is about time?
Oh yes it is, it really is!
Let's get this party started!
My hands are shaking...
Just take a drink, steady your nerves.
Let's get this party started!

Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to die?
Cause lately it seems I'm going insane!

Please don't get up!
Oh no, you're fine right there!
Just don't mind me as I take you all in!
So drink 'em up, oh yes just slam 'em down!
Have one on me as I lock you all in!
My sweet little sheep your wolf has come...

You should know I'm dangerous.
My thirst for blood turns me on...
How sweet...

Is this what we pictured the night that we said, "you're the one"?
I'm going crazy without you.
It's hard to believe but I'm having fun.

Annabel, look what you've started!

The knife slides down to the tip of my tongue.
I'm finding pleasure in watching you writhe.
I lean in just to lick the sweat off your face.
I taste the reverence dripping down my throat.

You should know I'm dangerous.
My thirst for blood turns me on...
How sweet...

Is this what we pictured the night that we said, "you're the one"?
I'm going crazy without you.
It's hard to believe but I'm having fun.

Annabel, look what you've started!

Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to run?
I've been waiting patiently for this...
Are you ready to die?
There is definitely something wrong!
Will they scream?
Will they cry?
Will they beg as they die or have to accept that this is the end?

Are you ready to die? Are you ready to die? Are you ready to die?
Are you ready to die?!
I'm so glad that all of you came!
Looking in I see a lonely man etching tallies into the bar.
Looking on I see a desperate man repeating something on the floor.
Oh how blood turns me on...
So sweet...

Is this what we pictured the night that we said, "you're the one"?
I'm going crazy without you.
It's hard to believe but I'm having fun.

Annabel, look what you've started!

Hymn For The Shameless lyrics - alesana

Saw your eyes today in a memory painted in the sky.
You smiled and said to me, "a love like this can never truly die."

So now the show's over and I've got to disguise the thing I've become.
I only wish I could stop laughing!
I grin because the joke is on them this time!
They don't have a clue.

Calm consumes me.

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me.
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy.
Oh, the visions inside my head...
The emptiness will haunt you...

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now.
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed.
Oh, what little regret I have...
Does that make me a killer?

I am the face of death standing right behind you.
Yet you're oblivious to my cold breath on your neck.
Is it just too easy?
Am I just too good at this?
I am the chosen one.
I am the end of all and now you are mine!

Calm consumes me.

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me.
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy.
Oh, the visions inside my head...
The emptiness will haunt you...

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now.
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed.
Oh, what little regret I have...
Does that make me a killer?

Saw your eyes today in a memory painted in the sky.
You smiled and said to me, "a love like this can never truly die."

Let's just say you're right and the nightmare ends, we wake up side by side.
What makes you think that I would let you live?
I've really lost my mind...

Behold, for I am the will of the reaper!
Beg for the mercy of your worthless angels!

As relief washes over me, calm consumes me.

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me.
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy.
Oh, the visions inside my head...
The emptiness will haunt you...

(I immerse myself in sick reflection...)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now.
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed.
Oh, what little regret I have...
Does that make me a killer?
[x3] [fades out]

The Thespian lyrics - alesana

(Baby) why are you doing this to me
(Sweetheart) Are those your eyes staring straight back at me
(Angel) I see your smile everywhere
(Darling, stop)

Night falls and I'm running in circles
I'm being chased by my imagination

Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine
No one deserves to live like this!

I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
You smile and it makes me fly
You are the reason my heart beats
Tonight it's just you and me

Night as dark as my thoughts sets the scene for my return
Lightning nips at my heels as I race home
Wearily I stagger towards the song of her pale voice
Demons jeer my attempt to be free

Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine
No one deserves to live like this

I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
You smile and it makes me fly
You are the reason my heart beats
Tonight its just you and me

Windows cast her gentle reflection
Her somber silhouette dances for me
Dear God, it's her

Look at you, you miserable fool
Get off your knees, your prayers fall upon deaf ears
Gods turned his back on you, heavens gates are shut
And now you're knocking on the devils door

Ive been expecting you for some time, sir
Allow me to introduce myself
I'm the one who pulls on all the strings, son
You're lucky I don't kill you where you stand

Tonight I raise my glass for I know its time to move on
(this can't be real. there's nothing left)
My patience will not last, tomorrow I will be gone
(all hope has failed. Ive lost my soul)

Heavy Hangs The Albatross lyrics - alesana

I've made up my mind and I will be leaving.
Leaving this cruel, dark world
for the soulless to share.
But first...

Women will shriek and watch their husbands bleed.
Child will cry (child will cry)
and watch their mothers die.
Because tonight (because tonight)
Tonight we all go to hell!
Why?

I have to let go of what happened to my love.
I am taking out on everyone else
all the problems I've brought on myself.
When I made your heart melt.
My belle, we soon will meet again.

There's nothing left for me to lose
Except confusion.
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away.
There's no one left to talk me down.
My feet are slipping...

One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
Of the day that I left her.
Goodbye, so long.
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
For better, or even for worse,
Remember me forever...

Now the only question left is how
to take you all down with me.
The coroner will have his hands full tonight.
That is if he is not among the dead.

Dead will choke the streets with such vulgarity that grown men will weep.
And then you will find the end is drawing night.

There's nothing left for me to lose
Except confusion.
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away.
There's no one left to talk me down.
My feet are slipping...

One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
Of the day that I left her.
Goodbye, so long.
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
For better, or even for worse,
Remember me...

The dizziness stuns me,
Would someone please distract me?
Can I really get through this?
Can I really betray myself?
For better, for worse, remember forever

(There's sweat on my hands and a knife at my throat.)
The dizziness stuns me,
Would someone please distract me?
(And as the blade bites my skin Annabel appears...)
Can I really get through this?
Can I really betray myself?
For better, for worse, remember forever
(For better, or for worse, remember me forever)

One day oh I hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
Of the day that I left her.
Goodbye, so long.
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
For better, or even for worse,
Remember me forever

The Lover lyrics - alesana

Is it her? Could it be? Should my eyes believe what they see?
If you are who I think you are
I might lose my mind.
Just a kiss from her lips
and I would simply float away.
The way her hips sway back and forth,
I've got butterflies.

Dead girls don't just appear out of thin air.
But I am victim to her sinister stare.

Please don't hate me for what I've done
Run away with me, I'll be everything that you need.
Such a pretty girl screams to me.
"Take my hand, take my breath away..."
What if my heart breaks again? (take my breath away)

Just a scent, of her skin
Unlocks forbidden memories.
The slightest gaze of fragile hand
I've got butterflies.

Dead girls don't just appear out thin air.
But I am victim to her sinister stare.

Please don't hate me for what I've done
Run away with me, I'll be everything that you need.
Such a pretty girl screams to me.
"Take my hand, take my breath away..."
What if my heart breaks again?

I'll be your anchor, I'll be your lover.
I'll be your anchor, I'll be your lover.
And then your heart is filled with doubt
I'll bear my soul to you belle!

Please don't hate me for what I've done
Run away with me, I'll be everything that you need.
Such a pretty girl screams to me.
"Take my hand, take my breath away..."

I can't loose you again.
I can't loose you again.
I can't loose you again.
I'm nothing without you.
I'll never let you down,
I'll never let you down,
I'll never let you down,
Angel

In Her Tomb By The Sounding lyrics - alesana

So I'm thinking we should maybe just run away from here.
With no plan of coming back.
We can stay away forever, our anguished love will be all we have.
And I will save your life.
It's happening again, it's happening again.
I won't watch you die.
It's happening again, it's happening again.

I can see it's not the first time you have come and taken her from me.
Rest assured it's not the last time, I'm going to set you free.
You took her once, shame on you.
You took her twice, shame on me.

Whisper softly and tell me you love me.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Please forgive me and know that I am sorry.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Trapped inside a memory, I'm falling apart.

Do you realize it's over?
There's no chance of leaving here alive.
You don't realize what you're saying, without me you can't survive.
You took her once, shame on you.
You took her twice, shame on me.

Whisper softly and tell me you love me.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Please forgive me and know that I am sorry.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Trapped inside a memory, I've lost it all.

I'm falling apart, you've ripped out my heart.
I'm falling apart, I don't know where to start.
I don't want to go, it's happening again, it's happening again
But I can't let it show, I'll be with her again, together till the end.
If I have to go, it's happening again, it's happening again
I'll be damned if I'm alone, I'll be with her again.

Whisper softly and tell me you love me.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Please forgive me and know that I am sorry.
I'm losing you, I don't know what to do.
Trapped inside a memory, I'm falling apart.
I've lost it all.

To Be Scared By An Owl lyrics - alesana

Look at the sky
As the night descends
The rain is crashing down,
I've hit another dead end
Just before I let hope slip away
A shadow is revealed, the devil shows his face

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame,
(I'm to blame)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

Look in my eyes! Am I shaking now?
I am all you fear, have I made myself clear?

Shut your mouth and finish what you've started
Boy, you haven't got the slightest idea
Just who I am and what I do for you
Don't you see that I am trying to save you?
Shut your mouth and finish what you've started

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame,
(No one else)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

[Speaking:]
As the last rays of sunlight fade,
One killer chases another
Through the tangled madness of the city
A flash of steel announces the presence of his quarry
The stage is set, the night explodes...

You killed her, you murderer
You have stripped me of the one that I love
Annabel, our Annabel
You have no clue what she's capable of...

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame
(I'm scared to death and have myself to blame)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

You'd better look behind you...

Annabel lyrics - alesana

How does the dagger feel now when you're on the receiving end?
If this is what you call betrayal.
Then this is what I call revenge.

How could I be so blind?
I guess I fell in love too quickly...
But I'm fine.

Imagine where you'd be now if you only knew.
The one you love is the one who's killing you.
I trusted you too much.
I know now that I should have kept my eyes wide open.
The first time that we kissed.
I'll bury you for this.

Just say to me that this time is the last time.
And I'll pretend that somehow I know we'll be fine.

Years spent watching in silence as your illness spilled onto page.
Those were the last days I spend with you.
Before you left, before he came.

Just say to me that this time is the last time.
And I'll pretend I'm fine.

It is my fault?
You fell into that illusion you've been living discretely.
Should I blame you in the end?
Did you ever think the sketches would take over completely?

Die!
Just die!
You are scum!
You are filth!
Choke on blood as your knife ends the show! Writhe in pain you thought you'd

Never know!
I don't think they dig graves close enough to hell for the likes of you!

I handed you a knife and my heart, and now the dream is over...

"Where Myth Fades To Legend" (2008)

This Is Usually The Part Where People Scream lyrics - alesana

You'll beat me?
Bring it on! Bring it on!
You're gonna save the day?
Bring it on! Bring it on!
You ready?
Bring it on!
I'll show you another thing or two!

You may think your clever but you're not
You better get the coffins out!
Trust me kid that's where you're sleeping tonight!

There's no guarantee we'll get out alive
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!
Baby, it's time to lock and load!
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!

Welcome to the show,
it's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
this tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
it's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!

You may think you've won but I promise you it's not over!
You may think you've won but I promise you it's not over!

This could be our one last chance to finally rise up
So here we stand and here we will fight
None of us shall run (None of us shall run)
from anyone
Storms are gathering

There's no guarantee we'll get out of alive
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!
We have to rise above and fight
We'll be heroes!

Welcome to the show,
it's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
this tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
it's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!

This is the part where you are supposed to scream! [x4]

When you scream we'll be heroes

Welcome to the show,
it's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
this tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
it's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will always save the day!
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!
Let's save the world!
Heroes will always save the day!

Goodbye, Goodnight, For Good lyrics - alesana

Jealousy rears its ugly head
I won't forget the things you said before
Goodbye, goodnight, for good...remember my face when you feel the pain

Help me to sleep...
Help me to sleep...

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed (with my eyes closed)
for the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes...
choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep...
Sleep tight, goodnight...
choke on the lies that were your last goodbye

Helps me to sleep without your memory
And my shattered dreams collect dust on what used to be a lie
It haunts me no more and now you're gone, you've left me alone
I wasn't wrong to feel this way inside so goodbye, goodnight, for good

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed (with my eyes closed)
for the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes...
choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep...
Sleep tight, goodnight...
choke on the lies that were your last...

I find pleasure in the taste of your decay
I anxiously watch you fade away

I can't explain what's happening inside of me
I refuse to fight you anymore
All I know is I have to make sure...make sure you never wake up again

Soft flesh gives way to trembling hand...

Beautiful eyes are sewn shut
Searing thread suffocates the light (the light)

Beautiful eyes are sewn shut
Searing thread suffocates the light (light)
