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! (x2)

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! (x2)

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...

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

I've 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!

This can't be real
Tonight I raise my glass
There's nothing left
For I know it's time to move on
All hope has failed
My patience will not last
I've lost my soul
Tomorrow I will be gone

    "As the sun sets, the Artist cannot seem to escape his own imagination. Completely lost in self-indulgence, he begins to see Annabel's face everywhere. The visions of her usher his wandering, delusional thoughts back to the day when he first fell in love with her. He soon becomes obsessed with the fantasy that she could possibly still be alive. The Artist scrambles home in a hastened fury only to be stopped dead in his tracks at his front porch by a man who introduces himself as the Thespian--the man who killed Annabel."

    This is a tragic tale of loving and losing. A man loves this woman and the woman dies (more than likely murdered). He keeps his love with him as if he can't grasp the fact that she is gone forever. The devil (aka: the thespian) comes up and makes a deal with him to bring her back. She comes back to life and everything is fine until she decides to kill the man she once loved and she ends up with the 'thespian'.

    The artist is being haunted by the recurring image of annabel, to the point where he meanders to her death bed. From there, her ghost reveals the man who actually killed her: the thespian. This man is psycho, but he will spare the artist's life if he runs off. But the artist craves vengeance. And so he vows to murder the thespian and then take his own life, so that he may join annabel. In my
    opinion, yes the artist is a psychopath, but throughout his dilusions, he still has a deep passion and care for his annabel.

    "as the sun sets I couldn't escape from my own imagination. Lost in self-indulgence I began to see annabel's face everywhere.
    The visions of her brought me back to my wondering, delusional thoughts and back to the day I first fell in love with her.
    I soon began to fantasize about how she could possibly be alive. I became obsessed with the fantasy.
    I ran home in a hastened fury only to be stopped dead in my tracks at my front porch by a man. I looked at the man. I know that I have seen his face before, but I couldn't remember from where.
    Who was he? What is he doing at my house?
    He looked back at me and with a low sinister voice he said "sorry to disrupt you sir but let me introduce myself to you. I am the thespian. Or in other words, i am the man who killed your beloved annabel. "

    This song is song 6 from the album and is about chapter six of the story on wich the album is based. In this chapter (i bought the album including the little book) the artist is running around in the city. He sees annabel's reflection everywhere but doesn't know how to stop it. He is thinking about the man who escaped the tavern the night before, right after he murdered 7 innocent people. He is thinking about leaving this world and never couming back. He is alone crying in some field when he sees some man approaching him. Its the man who he saw the night before in the tavern. He started to play with something wich seemed to be the knive the artist saw the night annabel died. That was the moment the artist realised this was the man who killed his love.
    Hope this can help you guys ^^
