Whisper

Catch me as I fall 
Say you're here and it's all over now 
Speaking to the atmosphere 
No one's here and I fall into myself 

This truth drives me 
Into madness 

I know I can stop the pain 
If I will it all away 

Don't turn away 
(Don't give in to the pain) 
Don't try to hide 
(Though they're screaming your name) 
Don't close your eyes 
(God knows what lies behind them) 
Don't turn out the light 
(Never sleep never die) 

I'm frightened by what I see 
But somehow I know 
That there's much more to come 
Immobilized by my fear 
And soon to be 
Blinded by tears 
I can stop the pain 
If I will it all away 

Don't turn away 
(Don't give in to the pain) 
Don't try to hide 
(Though they're screaming your name) 
Don't close your eyes 
(God knows what lies behind them) 
Don't turn out the light 
(Never sleep never die) 

Fallen angels at my feet 
Whispered voices at my ear 
Death before my eyes 
Lying next to me I fear 
She beckons me 
Shall I give in 
Upon my end shall I begin 
Forsaking all I've fallen for 
I rise to meet my end 

Don't turn away 
(Don't give in to the pain) 
Don't try to hide 
(Though they're screaming your name) 
Don't close your eyes 
(God knows what lies behind them) 
Don't turn out the light 
(Never sleep never die) 



Imaginary 

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming 
Cannot cease for the fear 
Of silent nights 
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming 
The goddess of imaginary light 

In my field of paper flowers 
And candy clouds of lullaby 
I lie inside myself for hours 
And watch my purple sky fly over me 

I linger in the doorway 
Of alarm clock screaming monsters 
Calling my name 
Let me stay 
Where the wind will whisper to me 
Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story 

If you need to leave the world you live in 
Lay your head down and stay a while 
Though you may not remember dreaming 
Something waits for you to breathe again 



My Immortal 

I'm so tired of being here 
Suppressed by all my childish fears 
And if you have to leave 
I wish that you would just leave 
'Cause your presence still lingers here 
And it won't leave me alone 

These wounds won't seem to heal 
This pain is just too real 
There's just too much that time cannot erase 

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears 
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears 
I held your hand through all of these years 
But you still have 
All of me 

You used to captivate me 
By your resonating light 
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind 
Your face it haunts 
My once pleasant dreams 
Your voice it chased away 
All the sanity in me 

These wounds won't seem to heal 
This pain is just too real 
There's just too much that time cannot erase 

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears 
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears 
I held your hand through all of these years 
But you still have 
All of me 

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone 
But though you're still with me 
I've been alone all along 

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears 
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears 
I held your hand through all of these years 
But you still have 
All of me 



Where Will You Go 

Youíre too important for anyone 
Thereís something wrong with everything you see 
But I, I know who you really are 
Youíre the one who cries when youíre alone 

But where will you go 
With no one left to save you from yourself 
You canít escape 
You canít escape 

You think that I canít see right through your eyes 
Scared to death to face reality 
No one seems to hear your hidden cries 
Youíre left to face yourself alone 

Where will you go 
With no one left to save you from yourself 
You can't escape the truth 
I realize youíre afraid 
But you canít abandon everyone 
You canít escape 
You donít want to escape 

Iím so sick of speaking words that no one understands 
Is it clear enough that you canít live your whole life all alone 
I can hear you in a whisper 
But you canít even hear me screaming 

Where will you go 
With no one left to save you from yourself 
You can't escape the truth 
I realize youíre afraid 
But you canít reject the whole world 
You canít escape 
You wonít escape 
You canít escape 
You donít want to escape 



Field of Innocence 

I still remember the world 
From the eyes of a child 
Slowly those feelings 
Were clouded by what I know now 

Where has my heart gone 
An uneven trade for the real world 
I want to go back to 
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all 

I still remember the sun 
Always warm on my back 
Somehow it seems colder now 

Where has my heart gone 
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger 
I want to go back to 
Believing in everything 

[Latin hymn] 



Even In Death

Give me a reason to believe that you're gone 
I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong 
Moonlight on the soft brown earth 
It leads me to where you lay 
They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home 

I will stay forever here with you, my love 
The softly spoken words you gave me 
Even in death our love goes on 

Some say I'm crazy for my love, oh my love 
But no bonds can hold me from your side, oh my love 
They don't know you can't leave me 
They don't hear you singing to me 

I will stay forever here with you, my love 
The softly spoken words you gave me 
Even in death our love goes on 

And I can't love you, anymore than I do 



Anywhere 

Dear my love, haven't you wanted to be with me 
And dear my love, haven't you longed to be free 
I can't keep pretending that I don't even know you 
And at sweet night, you are my own 
Take my hand 

We're leaving here tonight 
There's no need to tell anyone 
They'd only hold us down 
So by the morning light 
We'll be half way to anywhere 
Where love is more than just your name 

I have dreamt of a place for you and I 
No one knows who we are there 
All I want is to give my life only to you 
I've dreamt so long I cannot dream anymore 
Let's run away, I'll take you there 

We're leaving here tonight 
There's no need to tell anyone 
They'd only hold us down 
So by the morning light 
We'll be half way to anywhere 
Where love is more than just your name 

Forget this life 
Come with me 
Don't look back you're safe now 
Unlock your heart 
Drop your guard 
No one's left to stop you 
Forget this life 
Come with me 
Don't look back you're safe now 
Unlock your heart 
Drop your guard 
No one's left to stop you now 

We're leaving here tonight 
There's no need to tell anyone 
They'd only hold us down 
So by the morning light 
We'll be half way to anywhere 
Where love is more than just your name 



Lies 

Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear 
Sealed with lies through so many tears 
Lost from within, pursuing the end 
I fight for the chance to be lied to again 

You will never be strong enough 
You will never be good enough 
You were never conceived in love 
You will not rise above 

They'll never see 
I'll never be 
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger 
Burning deep inside of me 

But through my tears breaks a blinding light 
Birthing a dawn to this endless night 
Arms outstretched, awaiting me 
An open embrace upon a bleeding tree 

Rest in me and I'll comfort you 
I have lived and I died for you 
Abide in me and I vow to you 
I will never forsake you 

They'll never see 
I'll never be 
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger 
Burning deep inside of me 

They'll never see 
I'll never be 
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger 
Burning deep inside of me 

Rest in me and I'll comfort you 
I have lived and I died for you 
Abide in me and I vow to you 
I will never forsake you 

They'll never see 
I'll never be 
I'll struggle on and on to feed this hunger 
Burning deep inside of me 



Away From Me 

I hold my breath as this life starts to take its toll 
I hide behind a smile as this perfect plan unfolds 
But oh, God, I feel I've been lied to 
Lost all faith in the things I have achieved 
And I 

I've woken now to find myself 
In the shadows of all I have created 
I'm longing to be lost in you 
(away from this place I have made) 
Won't you take me away from me 

Crawling through this world as disease flows through my veins 
I look into myself, but my own heart has been changed 
I can't go on like this 
I loathe all I've become 

I've woken now to find myself 
In the shadows of all I have created 
I'm longing to be lost in you 
(away from this place I have made) 
Won't you take me away from me 

Lost in a dying world I reach for something more 
I have grown so weary of this lie I live 

I've woken now to find myself 
In the shadows of all I have created 
I'm longing to be lost in you 
(away from this place I have made) 
Won't you take me away from me 

I've woken now to find myself 
In the shadows of all I have created 
I'm lost in shadows of my own 
I'm longing to be lost in you 
Away from me

"Going Under"

now i will tell you what i've done for you 
50 thousand tears i've cried 
screaming deceiving and bleeding for you 
and you still won't hear me 
don't want your hand this time i'll save myself 
maybe i'll wake up for once 
not tormented daily defeated by you 
just when i thought i'd reached the bottom 
i'm dying again 

i'm going under 
drowning in you 
i'm falling forever 
i've got to break through 
i'm going under 

blurring and stirring the truth and the lies 
so i don't know what's real and what's not 
always confusing the thoughts in my head 
so i can't trust myself anymore 
i'm dying again 

i'm going under 
drowning in you 
i'm falling forever 
i've got to break through 

so go on and scream 
scream at me i'm so far away 
i won't be broken again 
i've got to breathe i can't keep going under



"Bring Me To Life"
(feat. Paul McCoy)

how can you see into my eyes like open doors
leading you down into my core
where Iíve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold 
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

now that I know what Iím without
you can't just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

all this time I can't believe I couldn't see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
Iíve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don't let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

(Bring me to life)
Iíve been living a lie, thereís nothing inside 
(Bring me to life)



"Everybody's Fool"

perfect by nature
icons of self indulgence
just what we all need
more lies about a world that

never was and never will be
have you no shame don't you see me
you know you've got everybody fooled

look here she comes now
bow down and stare in wonder
oh how we love you
no flaws when you're pretending
but now i know she

never was and never will be
you don't know how you've betrayed me
and somehow you've got everybody fooled

without the mask where will you hide
can't find yourself lost in your lie 

i know the truth now
i know who you are
and i don't love you anymore

it never was and never will be
you're not real and you can't save me
somehow now you're everybody's fool



"My Immortal"

my immortal
i'm so tired of being here
suppressed by all of my childish fears
and if you have to leave
i wish that you would just leave
because your presence still lingers here
and it won't leave me alone 

these wounds won't seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
and i've held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

you used to captivate me
by your resonating light
but now i'm bound by the life you left behind
your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

these wounds won't seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
and i've held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
and though you're still with me
i've been alone all along



"Haunted"

long lost words whisper slowly to me
still can't find what keeps me here
when all this time i've been so hollow inside
i know you're still there

watching me wanting me
i can feel you pull me down
fearing you loving you
i won't let you pull me down

hunting you i can smell you - alive
your heart pounding in my head

watching me wanting me
i can feel you pull me down
saving me raping me
watching me



"Tourniquet"

i tried to kill the pain
but only brought more
i lay dying
and i'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal
i'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved
am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
i'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
am i too lost to be saved
am i too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will i be denied Christ
tourniquet
my suicide



"Imaginary"

i linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don't say i'm out of touch
with this rampant chaos - your reality
i know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge 
the nightmare i built my own world to escape

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
oh how i long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light



"Taking Over Me"

you don't remember me but i remember you
i lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
but who can decide what they dream?
and dream i do...

i believe in you
i'll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you're taking over me

have you forgotten all i know
and all we had?
you saw me mourning my love for you
and touched my hand
i knew you loved me then

i believe in you
i'll give up everything just to find you
i have to be with you to live to breathe
you're taking over me

i look in the mirror and see your face
if i look deep enough
so many things inside that are just like you are taking over



"Hello"

playground school bell rings again
rain clouds come to play again
has no one told you she's not breathing?
hello i'm your mind giving you someone to talk to
hello

if i smile and don't believe
soon i know i'll wake from this dream
don't try to fix me i'm not broken
hello i'm the lie living for you so you can hide
don't cry

suddenly i know i'm not sleeping
hello i'm still here 
all that's left of yesterday



"My Last Breath"

hold on to me love
you know i can't stay long
all i wanted to say was i love you and i'm not afraid
can you hear me?
can you feel me in your arms? holding my last breath safe inside myself are all my thoughts of you sweet raptured light it ends here tonight i'll miss the winter a world of fragile things look for me in the white forest hiding in a hollow tree (come find me) i know you hear me i can taste it in your tears holding my last breath safe inside myself are all my thoughts of you sweet raptured light it ends here tonight closing your eyes to disappear you pray your dreams will leave you here but still you wake and know the truth no one's there say goodnight don't be afraid calling me calling me as you fade to black "Whisper" catch me as i fall say you're here and it's all over now
speaking to the atmosphere
no one's here and I fall into myself this truth drives me into madness
i know i can stop the pain if i will it all away don't turn away don't give in to the pain don't try to hide though they're screaming your name don't close your eyes God knows what lies behind them don't turn out the light never sleep never die i'm frightened by what i see but somehow i know that there's much more to come immobilized by my fear and soon to be blinded by tears i can stop the pain if i will it all away don't turn away don't give in to the pain don't try to hide though they're screaming your name don't close your eyes God knows what lies behind them don't turn out the light never sleep never die fallen angels at my feet whispered voices at my ear death before my eyes lying next to me i fear she beckons me shall i give in upon my end shall i begin forsaking all i've fallen for i rise to meet the end
