[Lead Theme: James]

The dreams of others
Wither by light of day
When the truth's uncovered
You will find me wasting away

A dark curse upon me
Flesh bound to the whipping post
Hunted and haunted
Stalked by nostalgia the memory of a ghost

Beyond forlorn, the answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn, I am so full on emptiness

In the heart of torture
Came the vulture's melody
To grant my wishes
A pardon from this malady.

A drop of poison
Just a drop to call the armies off
A chance for release
For release is all I ever want

Beyond forlorn, the answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn, I am so full on emptiness
The greed that blankets passion
Keeps all of our grief in fashion
And as the fervor slowly dies
I damn my soul to open up the sky.

[Lead Theme: James]

[Solo: James]
[Solo: Nick]

From this failing temple
Draped in scarlet shrouds
The starving statue
Looks on and speaks aloud

Locked inside the famine chamber
I am the prince of emaciation
Under the spell of the coldest slender
Grant me my wish, release the poison.

A dark curse upon me
Flesh bound to the whipping post
A drop of poison
Just a drop to call the armies off.

Beyond forlorn
The answers lie in loneliness
Disease reborn
I am so full on emptiness
The greed that blankets passion
Keeps all of our grief in fashion

Beyond forlorn,
Stalked by nostalgia
My memories are your ghost.

    What it is saying is that when God finds him out his life is going to be ruined because a curse is going to open up on him. His dreams are only going to last so long so he wants to take them as far as he can before he gets found out.
