Madame Macabre – Painted Smile lyrics

[Verse:]
I can't even remember how it started.
A nagging voice.
My normal then departed from me.
Primal urges spiriting my senses away,
Foggy glimpses of the boy I used to be
.
Preyed upon by the lowest of society,
They're parasitic,
Demanding your conformity
.
Pushing limits,
Things are gonna get real ugly.
Ripping through the last shreds of my humanity.

[Bridge:]
I'm not but a shadow of what I was,
And I'm Hellbent and headed for you
.

[Hook:]
Surely you've realized that there's no way out of this alive;
Close your eyes,
'Cause it's time for you to
:
Go To Sleep.

[Chorus:]
Climbing through your window pane,
I'm creeping closer,
Can you hear me?
Go on, mock me, say I'm insane;
But it's you who's caught in my game.
Cat and mouse,
A lovely circle.
Watch your tongue,
Those words are hurtful.
Hush now, won't you stay a while?
Join me with a painted smile
.

[Verse:]
Tragic faces stationed at my bedside,
Warm embraces hollow on the inside.
And their eyes betray them,
Widening with fear and worry
.
Fuses burn down,
And my vision becomes blurry.
Liars always fill me with this unchained fury
.
Carve this face into their darkest memories.
'Cause that's just showbiz,
This is a Divine Comedy.
Ready! Action
!
Pray that you are fast enough to flee.

[Bridge:]
I'm not entirely unsympathetic.
So I'll give you the count until three
.

[Hook:]
Surely you've realized that there's no way out of here alive;
Close your eyes
,
'Cause it's time for you to:
Go To Sleep
.

[Chorus:]
Climbing through your window pane,
I'm creeping closer,
Can you hear me?
Go on, mock me, say I'm insane;
But it's you who's caught in my game.
Cat and mouse,
A lovely circle.
Watch your tongue,
Those words are hurtful.
Hush now, won't you stay a while?
Join me with a painted smile
.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Patience is a virtue,
When you're working on a masterpiece.
And tolerance is valued when you're,
Working on a living canvas.
Stitch my words into tender flesh,
This grin will stay forever fresh.
Don't be lonely,
Don't be jealous.
Your turn's coming,
How could I forget
?

[Spoken:]
Still awake? Not for long...

[Chorus:]
Climbing through your window pane,
I'm creeping closer,
Can you hear me?
Go on, mock me, say I'm insane;
But it's you who's caught in my game.
Cat and mouse,
A lovely circle.
Watch your tongue,
Those words are hurtful.
Hush now, won't you stay a while?
Join me with a painted smile
.
