This is the final night, boys. We are the cracks in diamond walls. I tried to illuminate but the shadows kill. I'm overshadowed. See how I blend in with nothing? Now beautiful boys, let's destroy. We'll shine as the lucite breaks and falls. Raise the new glitter god with the golden tears- the tears that swallow. A smile that's touched so warms nothing.
Yesterday I burnt the sky, looked to the ground and wrapped it around me. Still today I have so much to burn. Yesterday I longed to die, fell to the ground, and the ground caught me. Now today I question why I fell. Deities fell to decoys, tainting what's pure. Let's cleanse them all.
Infinite life reclaimed, as the shadows kill they are overshadowed. Well burn as they fade into nothing. So what can help me to understand, somehow, why it always pains me to breathe? We're no longer confined because yesterday I burnt the sky.
My dear there is no danger
Can't you see they turn blind eyes
To we swift and spotlight strangers?
Oh before the rush is over
We will be revered again
While the victims still recover
Oh!... If we run this light
Take a little life
No one will care at all
Breathing Towers To Heaven
I saw this alone.
The city was aflame.
Did I turn right in or turn away?
Seems I went back home, holed up for a day.
Some say a year passed but that's okay, I'll stay.
Disappear, with me here, where the sun shows no fear,
As it burns my resolution to remain,
To refrain from contending the flame
As we join, this great illusion reappears.
How I regret what I must do but you've left me no choice.
Though I still strain I can't recall the beauty of your fey voice.
Now that I've heard come through the walls a song I've heard many times
I must return all you gave me in the company of swine.
We had found sacred ground you burnt down.
I thought you sang so tastefully but now I see I was wrong.
Your serenade turns to filth when I leave so, please, cut the love song.
How I regret what I must do but you must be replaced
Darling, I Want To Destroy You
Were you dying to go? You just looked so exposed,
Demure through the dark dancing lights.
I glided by.
I can't deny that the shadows betrayed you and I on that night.
Oh, I must confess I am overdressed.
Are you not impressed?
Darling I want to.
I'll confess this too, must you know the truth,
This is all for you.
Pull the top down, use your knees to drive.
I'll make it worth your while just let me taste the sky.
You pressed your mouth on mine and fed me a star
Then said "we never can truly know who we are."
Know who we are.
With the lights out and the night inside
The broken radio was playing suicide.
I felt myself falling.
I confessed to you "I saw a body."
Give me this before
Before I sink,
Because I think
I may have found
The short way down
Just give me something
Something's cold and clear
The love spent here,
As I had feared,
It Was Mine
Don't do anything
What we captured got away,
Slipped from us
Don't speak, don't
Don't say anything,
They've been recording all we say
For years now.
I Am Trying Very Hard To Be Here
Before you came what was your name? Did you look like me?
No one's from here, no one my dear, not even the trees.
So change your name, just keep your face. We're temporary anyway.
Before you came we played this game in our masquerade.
Flash, Flash, Car Crash
We're no fixtures.
Quick, now, Quick take our picture!
What was your past?
Could I, could I just find a way
I'd find you everyday and we could alter time.
But I've come to find everyone's gone away.
So this may be the time for the perfect crime.
Yes, this is perfect.
(This is) our medicine. (This is) our time to...
OK, I Feel Better Now
There is nothing to me.
There is nothing though there was a time
I had felt elation before all sensation died.
I cannot breathe.
(I cannot breathe)
I can't deny that I've been feigning,
For you, every vital sign defied.
I'm never gonna understand this.
I'm never gonna let it be.
I just can't understand this aged plan. It's obsolete.
How could you recognize and cherish hysteric fairy tales.
They've come to life. Now sit by and listen...
The whole world wails.
I feel as though I've been abducted,
Or maybe I am just misplaced,
Too Shy To Scream
I come quietly. Silent entities
Can lack a certain weight when unseen.
Do they speak of me?
My voice left with the breeze that
Whispered "you should flee or you shall be seen."
If you only met my eyes.
Before you pass by,
Will you pause to break my heart.
I saw you. Angels came to light your path.
I heard you keep their wings pressed under glass.
Now am I so enthralled that I might die?
I saw you, sweetly smile, and say "do try".
I'd tear out my eyes for you, my dear
To see everything that you do.
Veronica Sawyer Smokes
Oh my story is not the oldest of it's kind.
I was too touched to see you clearly,
Far too young to realize I had loved so dearly you,
Who's world I had designed,
But the sweet smoke came with mirrors
And it brought tears to my wide eyes.
Dying just to see you...
Dying since I misconstrued your blue heart,
Black eyes, feigning falling, words I won't forget.
I died right when I saw you while you shared that cigarette.
We've Got The Knife
You've got your pretty face
You've got disarming eyes
You've got such social grace
I've got such pretty spies
I found you lost, misplaced
I loved that lovely guise
I said I'd try my luck and you said
"Well you don't, you don't have to try."
Where We Used To Play
I might seem a bit peculiar
A bit not right
For though I try, I remain a stranger – not of this time.
I swear I'm almost there
Though I've been wandering for days.
I may be chasing ghost trains hoping they'll arrive
Where we used to play.
I may be hopping ghost trains for they terminate
Where we used to play in those days.
