what it is to burn what it is to burn

new beginnings
hand me downs and photographs
spread across the floor
a broken record spins in circles
she can't listen anymore
she's turned around a thousands times
she set that bridge a fire
did you wanna listen
you took the world with you
so what is left
so what is left for me
i called you on the phone again
just the other day
it sounds to me you found your place
and everything is great
did you wanna listen
you took the world with you
so what is left
so what is left for me
did you wanna listen
you took the world with you
so what is left
so what is left for me
i've tried so hard to figure out why
no explantaion keeps me waiting
that's fine because i know you won't forget
right now even if the story is over
is over
is over
did you want to listen you took the world with you
so what is left for me
so what is left for me
did you wanna listen
you took the world with you
so what is left
so what is left for me
whats left for me
did you wanna listen
you took the world with you
so what is left
so what is left for me
i've tried

letters to you
can't you see that i want to be
there with open arms
it's empty tonight and i'm all alone
get me through this one
do you notice i'm gone
where do you run to so far away
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i'm writing again
these letters to you aren't much i know
but i'm not sleeping and you're not here
the thought stops my heart
do you notice i'm gone
where do you run to so far away
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
no more looking
i've found home
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i want you to know that i miss you
i miss you so
i've gone away
i've gone away


post script
i wish it didn't hurt
hurt like this
to say these things to you
i'll sacrifice one moment for one truth
if we get through tommorow
then we'll be fine
we'll wait for forever
and see how close we get
it's just another day
one more chance to get this right
i'll sacrifice forever
please just for tonight
if we get through tommorow
then we'll be fine
we'll wait for forever
and see how close we get
the worst is over for now
take a breath now let it out
the worst is over for now
take a breath now let it out
the worst is over for now

grey matter
bite the tongue
to live with what you've done
it's so good
it's so good
lie to myself while i lie with myself
it's monday and it's raining
it's sunday in the sun
it's so good but
would it be so bad if you were to pretend that you were so happy
keep it to yourself
don't let the secret go
if you were so willing but
let's pray for this suicide and all these pictures falling down around me
i've surrounded myself with all i have inside
would i bite my tongue
and live with what you've done
just continue sleeping
selfishly consumed with everything you rot
there's nothing i can do but
let's pray for this suicide and all these pictures falling down
one wishfull now step to the side
and please just let me know
are you happy i'll decide
these stories are so old now they match your eyes
are you happy i'll decide
these stories are so old now they match your eyes
are you happy i'll decide
these stories are so old now they match your eyes but
let's pray for this suicide and all these pictures falling down
one wishfull now step to the side
and pick these pictures from the ground that surround me

perfection through silence
alone at last
together in a photograph
our eyes are always open
devoted to perfection through silence
what am i supposed to do
should i sit wait for you
listen to me screaming more
the story is old
only to those who have no mold
the truth can be bought or sold
but what are we buying
nothing but silence
what am i supposed to do
should i sit wait for you
listen to me screaming more
tell me now just what am i supposed to do
should i sit wait for you
listen to me screaming more
fold the corners break the silence
fold the corners just for tonight
fold the corners break the silence
fold the corners just for tonight
fold the corners break the silence
when weakened when will you rise
what am i supposed to do
should i sit and wait for you
listen to me screaming more
tell me now just what am i supposed to do
should i sit and wait for you
listen to me screaming more

awake
one devotion to an empty moment
can you stay tonight
silence broken with words unspoken
now she's on her knees
no more feeling so useless
can i beg for one more she said
taking with arms wide open
longing for sleep again
the air is clearing
again we're breathing
water turns to wine
the day is tired
the night's inside her
now she is alive
no more feeling so useless
can i beg for one more she said
taking with arms wide open
longing for sleep again
but now i'm awake
but now i'm awake
but now i'm awake
keep breathing till you feel something
take my breath away
away (keep breathing till you feel something take my breath away)
away (keep breathing till you feel something take my breath away)
away (keep breathing till you feel something take my breath away)
away (keep breathing till you feel something take my breath away)
feeling so useless
can i beg for one more she said
taking with arms wide open
longing for sleep again
but now i'm awake
(i'm awake)
but now im awake
(i'm awake)
but now im awake
(i'm awake)
but now im awake

without you here
the storm is bad tonight
so how could i awake without you here
your picture is on the wall
you haven't called
but i'll wait for you
to her own reflection she said i will hold on
to her own reflection she said i will be strong
the storm is letting up
but it won't die
if you weren't wrong was i
your picture still remains
but i wonder are you still the same
to her own reflection she said i will hold on
to her own reflection she said i will be strong
am i losing you
am i losing you
i'm waiting
i'm waiting till it's over
it's over now
i'm waiting
i'm waiting till it's over
it's over now
i'm waiting
i'm waiting till it's over
it's over now
i'm waiting
i'm waiting till it's over
it's over now
to her own reflection she said i will hold on
to her own reflection she said i will be strong
to her own reflection she said
(i'm waiting)
i will hold on
(i'm waiting)
to her own reflection she said
(i'm waiting)

stay with me
once again your eyes
make it hard to say goodbye
so i'll just keep driving
where do you want to go
it doesn't really matter
as long as you are here with me
with me
with me
whoa there's something in the air tonight
something that makes me feel alive
and i said whoa
what were the words that you said to me
that made me feel so special now
once again your eyes
make it hard to ask you why
so i sit here knuckles tight
hands against the wheel
your head against the glass
and you mean so much to me
to me
to me
whoa there's something in the air tonight
something that makes me feel alive
and i said whoa
what were the words that you said to me
that made me feel so special whoa
whoa whoa
say with me
cigarettes and open air
hand in hand
and i said stay with me
cause every star that i see is brighter than the last
so say with me
cigarettes and open air
hand in hand
and i said stay with me
cause every star that i see is brighter than the last
so say with me
cigarettes and open air
hand in hand
and i said stay with me
cause every star that i see is brighter than the last
so stay with me

project mayhem
she shouts the most incessant the most deplete
she said show me conscience with nothing to eat
she said null the worm
lets sober up
caught in time with the fizz of the burn
and so we burn
can you begin at ending
so that i may begin again
i took this from you
i thought i was you
now don't misunderstand me
i never meant to
to create you
only mayhem

untitled
everything is silent
i feel disconnected
as words turn to phrases
phrases turn to prayer
so now you know this is my call
do you hear me
and if i fall
will you be there to catch me
when you close your eyes now
are you satisfied
when this is all over
there will be nothing left
so now you know this is my call
do you hear me
and if i fall
will you be there to catch me
this is my call
do you hear me
and if i fall
will you be there to catch me now
it's sharpening beneath me
beneath my feet
the earth opens up to swallow me
take my hand and lead me on
take my hand and lead me on
itís sharpening beneath me
beneath my feet
itís sharpening
beneath me
itís sharpening
itís sharpening
itís sharpening

three simple words
open up my eyes
flooded with day light
another sleepless night
turns color black and white
with all the things i've said
there is just regret
repeating in my head
hands into a fist
static in my head
now i'm standing face to face with lonliness
what did i expect
did i see forever in you
i never want it to hurt more than it should
i hope you're satisfied
i never could
time to close my eyes
forget about this mess
and try to face this tragic loss of innocence
but how can i forget the things i have inside
when everything is dead
i never want it to hurt more than it should
i hope you're satisfied
i never could
can't you see you left me here on my own
give me one good reason why i should let go
with my hands around your neck
who will stop me now
with my hands around your neck
who will stop me now
with my hands around your neck
who will stop me now
with my hands around your neck
who will stop me now
who will stop me now
who will stop me now
who will stop me now
who will stop me now
i never want it to hurt more than it should
i hope you're satisfied
i never could
can't you see you left me here on my own
give me one good reason why i should let go now

ender (a song for you)
here i am beside myself again
i'm torn apart by words that you have said
and all in all i know we're falling apart
where did you run to so far away
and here we are to sing you a song
and there you are asleep against the windowpane just like always
you said you like to hear the rain sometimes
and all i can do is tell you the truth
and oh my eyes will tell you the same
and here we are to sing you a song
and there you are asleep again
and here we are to sing you a song
and there you are asleep again
grasp our hands together
we feel we are one result
grasp our hands together
we feel we are one result
and grasp our hands together
we feel we are one result
grasp our hands together
we feel we are one result
result
and here we are to sing you a song
and there you are asleep again
and here we are to sing you a song
and there you are asleep again
here i am beside myself again

what it is to burn
she burns
today is on fire
the sky is bleeding above me
and i am blistered
i walk these lines
of blasphemy
everyday and still
like a bad star
im falling faster down to her
shes the only one who knows what it is to burn
i feel diseased
is there no sympathy
from the sun
the sky is still fire
but i am safe in here
from the world outside
so tell me whats the price to pay for glory
like a bad star
im falling faster down to her
shes the only one who knows what it is to burn
today is fire
and she burns
today is fire
and she burns
she burns
she burns
she burns
she burns
she burns
she burns
like a bad star
im falling faster down to her
shes the only one who knows what it is to burn
