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

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
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...

Her youthful flesh colour had drained from her much like the very blood from her veins on the bedroom she lied. Such a foul image for one to withhold. In some twisted way it only seemed to enhance her exquisite beauty, like a lily on a grave. I have failed. Once again I have let her down. My poor sweet Annabel. You trusted me, you gave me your love, your soul, now I fall to my knees in front of the man that took you from me. I fall pathetic, defeated. I will be with you again so soon my love, so very soon. Eyes of an angel await me, I'll be damned, nothing's going to stop me now.

Sweetheart, darling,
Turn around, it's me, follow my voice,
Everything's gonna be okay.
My love, everything will be fine,
It's all over now.

    "i spent the day planning my attack and the evening hunting the thespian. Immediately as I was searching for him my eyes got blinded by the flash of light from his knife.
    We ended up fighting to the death. While he was armed with the blade that murdered my one and only love and caused me to succumb to madness all I had was my own bare hands and the fleeting memories of annabel, all of the good and bad.
    I vowed revenge on the thespian as blood and tears spilled during our deadly fight. But once again I had failed. I had let her down, for he found my throat, and gave me my lovers' fate.
    "i'll see you soon, my love. " I thought as he took the knife away from my throat, and my soon to be lifeless body. "

    This album confuses me so much. Is annabel really dead? Are the artist and the thesbian the same person? Everything that is said on the internet doesn't make sense if you read all the lyrics word for word. I am extremely confused with the story line and everyone seems to be taking it in a different way. If there is one full correct story, I would like to know it and pray to god it makes sense in my head. Nothing really does, which is a huge reason I love this album. It doesn't make sense :)

    Try again guys, if you read the whole album lyrics properly, annabel wasn't dead but an imagination of the artist as his thought are getting drowned by his sketches, with his dilluded state of mind he killed everyone in the town he was staying in as he believe f he couldn't have happiness, nobody can, then in his imagination he met a guy called the thespian who claims he kill annabel, the he began having thoughts on how to kill thespian and in this song is his fight with the thespian which in the end turns out to be annabel as if you read the lyrics from annabel, the last song in the album properly, you will be able to see things from annabel perspective of the whole event of the artist going on a rampage on the whole town.

    I'm trying to think really, I think he was in love with somone but she was murdered and he looks up to the sky meaning (Heaven) He wants the best for her there but he is scared to death without her. He let her down letting her die. He wants revenge on the person who killed her (Shut your mouth and finished what youve started) He doesent care if he dies because his love is gone forever. (I'm Scared to death and have myself to blame, how did we end up fighting anyways?) Saying that he was scared because she was gone and its his fualt because they were fighting. Shes gone. (This song is a love story) Great song: D
