Every Day, A Little More
my words can make you cry
…take you by surprise…
at the same time, they can make you realize
there's more than meets the eye
delve deep down inside, open yourself up wide
and take my pain inside
it can open up your eyes
make you cry for my divide
power the beast inside
and fight for light of day
so that you may say
"I survived one more day."
if you do, maybe the pain will go away
but it won't, like a stray, it's here to stay
from that time we call yesterday
to every day after today
that pain is here to stay
no matter what you say
(You can't even know my pain)
How I adore you
(Or that I am suffering)
(Every day, it hurts a little more)
caught up in the mean machine are we
fighting to be free, falling on my knees
begging everybody please
help me to be me,
I don't know if I have another year in me,
you gotta help me!
can't you see these marks on my arm?
the harm that I cause gives me alarm
because I don't remember it,
don't remember doing it,
don't remember the blade in
Spiraling down to the earth again
like autimn leaves after a winter's snow
Spiraling across the night again
Riding wings through liquid shadow
Sainthood lost behind her eyes
Red tracks fall down her face
She's left behind, alone in snow,
As something in her dies
Can you feel my sedition?
You know you feel it burn inside.
Why should you care?
She's not yours
She drugs herself again,
but the drugs don't work,
none of them work
A removal from the world
A dream sequence of beautiful lies
And she tries to break free,
but she can't.
The tracks run up her arms,
given to her by each person who didn't care
Inflicted by herself in an attempt
to bring back that one-of-a-kind
high that is a low
One more hit to dope herself up again
The darkness calling her back down
The snow stains red
And something in her dies
The darkness is a comfort,
a fixation, an addiction
Just another shot in the arm
Symphonia Daemonium, Symphonia
Rise, my subjects, rise!
Tonight we strike on hellish tide!
Raise the chorus,
cry the horns,
tonight we slip the dogs of war!
Let us march forward to our war-drums,
march to death or kingdom come!
The blutreich starts tonight
Rise, my nightmares, rise!
Tonight we'll fly across the skies!
Crash the drums,
crash the bells,
tonight we send them to our hells!
The trumpets call a call to arms, a call to war!
The demons knock upon our door!
The pearly gates can't stand long,
march forward a thousand strong!
Harpers! Raise your call!
Trumpets! Play or we shall fall!
We strike forward, an orchestra of war,
our instruments our swords,
our musicians, knights,
our symphony wails against the night.
The horns of Jericho,
the flutes of Carthage,
the drums of Rome,
they play for us
in our symphony of destruction,
our symphony of seduction,
of fiends and sin.
We corrupt our kin,
bend them to our whim,
and send them back to fight again,
turned to our side,
prepared to die.
They seduce u
LullabySleep now, little one,
there's nothing to fear
when I'm here
The night is cold;
let's cover you up
wrap you up in the blankets that mommy made
and light a single candle
to stave away the dark
Sleep now, and dream of wonders
of sights unseen,
of dreams of beauty and light
What's at the end of the rainbow?
Or on the other side of the sea?
What wonders await you tomorrow?
Sleep now, and dream these for me
Goodnight, my little one
A kiss, and a tuck, and a song,
A flickering candle, a whispered goodnight,
A scattering of blessing, and a pause at the door...
I love you, my baby, sleep tight
