- LyricsSweat drips in my eyes, screams of lust we cry
Tonight you are everything to me, you're everything,
You're everything to me no more
As I wake from this perfect dream
I'll escape from Eden's walls, I can not stay and live this lie?
- LyricsA touch of poison seals my fate
The dawn echoes the night with my glory...the sun himself honors me
Once king of roses,now lord of gold
The Gods themselves envy my hand
Blessed with the gift of gilded touch
- LyricsNo one ever said that life was fair and I'm not saying that it should be
So knowing that you are where you want to be and I'm not comes as no surprise
But don't expect me to be happy for you
And don't smile at me and tell me things will work out for me too
I don't want your pity, I hate your pity
- LyricsTake everything away from me silent angel
Apathy cries out from your lungs, indifference reeks of fiction
Time will tell how far you will go
I can't see why you'd run and hide excluding such complacence
As tears rain from bloodshot eyes
- LyricsYou take my breath away...
But Ill never again taste your lips
As fate keeps me locked away
I must close my eyes to see your face
Emptiness has darkened my eyes
