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 that 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.

Whisper softly and tell me that 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 but I can't let it show.
I'll be with her again, together til the end.
If I have to go I'll be damned if I'm alone.
It's happening again, It's happening again.

    "The Artist finds his feet and trudges back out into the sunlit town. He rounds the corner and once again sees Annabel in the reflection of a window. However, this time she does not look angry or sad. She doesn't appear to him as the tortured and pained image he saw in the bar, but rather as the woman he had fallen so in love with during the past seven years. Suddenly, the Thespian appears in the reflection, standing behind Annabel with a knife to her throat. Fear engulfs her entire body as the Thespian slits her throat from ear to ear. The horrific image alerts the Artist of two things equally disturbing and harsh: the memory of Annabel is slowly disappearing from his mind and he must find and kill the man who has taken her from him."

    "i find my feet and trudge back out into the sunlit town. I reached the corner and once again i see annabel in the reflection of a window. But this time she didn’t look sad or angry.

    She didn’t appeared tortured like in the image i saw at the tavern, but as the woman i had fallen in love with during the past seven years. Suddenly, the thespian appears, standing behind annabel with a knife to her throat.

    Fear takes over her body as the thespian slits her throat from ear to ear. The horrific image alerted me of two things:

    The memory of annabel was slowly disappearing and that i must find an kill the man who has killed her. "

    The Artist sees Annabel again, in reality, but his true reality is now only hallucinations and voices in his mangled world. I love how this album tells such a beautiful story of insanity and love, but it also relates really well to life. Nothing compares to the hatred you feel towards everyone who took her away from you...
    Except the collapsing feeling of your own world as she dies.

    As the half moon descends from the starless sky, The Artist remains tormented and heartbroken. Though he allows silence to fill the ruined walls of the indoor pub, his mind never tires of taking this agonizing nightmare to its very collapse. A disturbing image of Annabel being cut by a madman reveals itself through the vivid reflection of the blood-covered mirror. He then shatters it into pieces and vows vengeance for his lover's sake. His looming fate awaits.
