In Venere Veritas

Let's fall apart together now

Zipping cupid in a body bag well-worn
Next to the mausoleum he was born in
Picking up the pieces of this gory glory of it all
From eve to morn
For Eve to mourn

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas

Let's fall apart together now

There's a method to our sadness as we drag the mirror ball and chain
Through the twilight again
Dressed up in shame

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas

Begging for reflection from an unshuttered heart
To blind and chase us over the edge

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing, in venere veritas
Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In venere veritas
These are the wounds that are not meant to heal at all

Let's fall apart together now
Let's fall apart together now



Scared to Death

In the biblical sense and sensibility let me know you
I'll kiss that smile off your face, just say when

I'm not afraid
to say I love you
any more than I used to be babe
I am scared to death
I am scared to death to fall in love

All these pick-up lines from hell
Icebreakers infernal
From the heart so black and blue
only for you

I'm not afraid
to say I love you
any more than I used to babe
I am scared to death
I am scared to death to fall in love

I'm not afraid
to admit I adore you
any more than I was before, baby
I am scared to death
I am scared to death to fall in love
with you
with you (scared to death)

And you're sweet like poison.



Heartkiller

Farewell heartless world,
I'll send you a postcard burnt,
In flames You've tried so hard to extinguish with the fear of failing,
I'll write down everything I have learned,
And edit it down to a single word,
Love
For you I'm waiting, anticipating

Sparks will fly,
Beneath the luna alight,
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a ,
Heartkiller
A little we die,
Above the lesser light,
For you I'm open wide,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a,
Heartkiller

Heartkiller

Top hats off to the return,
Of the beat to lick a wound to,
Cursed for some and blessed for a few,
It doesn't have to make any sense at all,
Come hither and we'll fall,
In love
For
Love
I'm crawling out of patience baby

Sparks will fly,
Beneath the luna alight,
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a ,
Heartkiller
A little we die,
Above the lesser light,
For you I'm open wide,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a,
Heartkiller

Paint all your sorrows for me to sing
Hearkiller
Draw your pain and hear me hum it out

Sparks will fly,
Beneath the luna alight,
Lazarus at Frankenstein's,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a ,
Heartkiller
A little we die,
Above the lesser light,
For you I'm open wide,
Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a,
Heartkiller
Heartkiller
Heartkiller

Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a,
Heartkiller

Babe I'll be a,
Flatliner for a,
Heartkiller



Dying Song


I've seen you breath life into the weakest of hearts,
And heard you scream at the sweetest poem

Echoing accros the ocean
Reminding me why I still try to hold onto
whatever is left of you and I,

Shedding skin to a dying song,
We hum along to the evening sun 'till we are no more,
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like life,

I've seen these dreams being crushed by a single thought,
And felt the envy of sadness engulf all warmth,
Barley alive under ice by exchanging sighs,
With tomorrow quivering in the loneliest light,

Shedding skin to a dying song,
We hum along to the evening sun 'till we are no more,
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like -- life and love,
Life and love,
Will you

Crawl back into bed tomorrow is trembling
at the sights of you and I,

Shedding skin to a dying song,
We hum along to the evening sun 'till we are no more,
Little deaths to a dying song,
Sound a lot like -- life and love,
Life and love,
Life and love,
Life and love, ( Background: Dying Song )
Life and love, ( A Dying Song )
With you, ( A Dying Song )
With you, ( Dying Song )
With you, ( Dying Song )
With you, Dying Song



Disarm Me (With Your Loneliness)

A promise of heaven pushed us right back to hell
Turned three sevens into three sixes again
And you laughed at my face when I told you how much it hurts
and said

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
telling me how you love

You keep on tempting me to go on whatever the cost
To witness the prettiest flower in bloom wither to dust
So Ill break all the rules in this endless game once called love
for you

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
telling me how you love
me with all your heart
no more

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
telling me how you love
me with all your heart
no more
(tell me how much you miss my warmth)
no more
(tell me how my kiss can change your world)
no more
(tell me how much it hurts to be alone)
No more
(Lie to me that you love me with all your heart)
No more



Love, the Hardest Way

Loves the devil counting teardrops in the rain
To the sound of a chalkboard symphony played with nails
For what its worth I dont want to see you hurt any more than you have to

Dine on glass, wine on blood, baby love the hard way
Baudelaire in braille baby love the harder way
Once you lose yourself entomb I promise you love the hardest way

pretty like a flower on a tomb
you are kissed blue by the last arrows of the sun
olly olly oxen free
hide and go weep no more
unless you want to

Dine on glass, wine on blood, baby love the hard way
Baudelaire in brail baby love the harder way
wont you lose yourself into I promise you love the hardest way

Dine on glass, wine on blood, baby love the hard way
Baudelaire in brail baby love the harder way
wont you lose yourself into I promise you love the hardest way
(Love the hard way)
Love the hardest way
(Love the harder way)
wont you lose yourself into I promise you love the hardest way
love the hardest way
Love the hardest way
Love the hardest



Katherine Wheel

Lo and behold baby
these are things you make me do
Katherine Wheel I am burning for you
Im burning for you

Come on and break me a limb at a time
wrap me round your spokes so tight
Theres no letting go
Spin me around to blur the line between you and I
What are you waiting for

Lo and behold baby

Katherine Wheel I am burning for you
Please dont stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel

Holding hands wont be enough
in a world giving head to a gun
love in theory and practice chapter one

Katherine Wheel I am burning for you
Please dont stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel

I twist and turn
In your arms swirl
The dizzier I get the clearer I see

Katherine Wheel I am burning for you
Please dont stop until my heart no longer screams
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel
Lo and behold baby

Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel
Im burning for you



In the Arms of Rain

Once again we found ourselves to be lost
Holding hands while straying from the path in a forest dark
Arent you happy to see me crawl
Serpertine towards the sun to you

Lift the lid of your hearts casket in the arms of rain
Well drift along this river of sadness until we feel no pain
Baby,It's the Hail Marys for the secrets youve kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrows dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Again, I fought myself and lost
Come bite the apple and Ill coil around your heart
Im so happy to see you weep along
In these these arms you belong

Lift the lid of your hearts casket in the arms of rain
Well drift along this river of sadness until we feel no pain
Baby, it's the Hail Marys for the secrets youve kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrows dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Ave Maria, weve tried
Ave Maria, we ve cried
Ave Maria, we've died

Lift the lid of your hearts casket in the arms of rain
Well drift along this river of sadness until we feel no pain
Baby, it's the Hail Marys for the secrets youve kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrows dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Lift the lid of your hearts casket in the arms of rain
Well drift along this river of sadness until we feel no pain
Baby, it's the Hail Marys for the secrets youve kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrows dream
In the arms of rain we are free
Its the end of the road
Hold me
Its the end of the road and we're free



Ode to Solitude

Easy on the eyes
Uneasy on the heart
Sew my wrists shut, sew my wrists shut
with hope striaght into the light shining bright
I dare you to dream this and I dare you to dream this gone
What I want to know is which makes you smile less

Heres to the pain the light of the oncoming train
Come on, Ode to solitude in chains
Heres to the pain, as always heaven in flames
Bleeding, ode to solitude in chains

Map the scars of the heart
Bruised and torn
Loosen the noose love, losen the noose with love
What I want to know is why you keep me hanging

Heres to the pain the light of the oncoming train
Come on, Ode to solitude in chains
Heres to the pain, as always heaven in flames
Bleeding, ode to solitude in chains

If I should fail to stay
remember not to forget this feeling you have
I've failed, please pretend it never happened baby



Shatter Me With Hope

The girl who cried at love, won't you come and play with me?
You can be Cassandra, underneath the sword of Damocles
We'll tear this baby apart wise like Solomon

Run, come shatter me now
Shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in, bleed out all sorrows
Scream me a dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
Shatter me with hope

She'll be the witness to the repose of Evelyn
Push the needle in
To the of canticles of ecstasy
Turn to page 43
And you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now, shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in, bleed out all sorrows
Scream me a dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
shatter me with hope

Swear on your heart's grave, I'm wrong
and love like your life's depending on it
('cause it is!)

We'll tear this baby apart, wise like Solomon
Turn to page forty three, and you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now, shatter me with hope
Crawl, come breathe me in
Bleed out all sorrow
Scream me dream, untouched by shadows
Baby, shatter me now, shatter me now
shatter me with hope
Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now
Oh, oh-u, oooh
Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now
Oh, oh-u, oooh,Oh, oh-u, oooh
Scream me a dream!
(Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now)
Scream me a dream!
(Shatter me now, shatter me now, shatter me now)



Acoustic Funeral (For Love in Limbo)

You missed the winter and it followed you back home
Where sun kissed the crimson footsteps in the melting snow
We are doing our best to disown the golden mean
By these acts of cruelty in the name of beauty to be free

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song, for the acoustic funeral

On the verge of a vow to kill all reason
Locking that door to a nightmare withing a nightmare
We are bound to adore
Let the planchette in the shape of a heart glide to oui
And fiinally confirm all fears to be so real
(It's unreal)

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song, for the acoustic funeral

Underneath the ice so thin i am turning blue
the one las thing i know to be real is the shadow of you
killing love with a kiss

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song, for the acoustic funeral
Let's re-enact the fall for the acoustic funeral



Like St. Valentine

In the name of love lost
I'm frozen to her and I want you to come
Build me a bridge soaked in gasoline
And pass the torch

Hey baby, let me be your valentine
Saint Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try
to keep a lie alive
Like Saint Valentine

Like the couple from Pompeii
Our drama is put on display
Along with a dove stuffed
In a coffin of glas entitled
Love, lust and the Holy Ghost
Those were the days

Hey baby, let me be your valentine
Saint Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and try
to keep a lie alive
Like Saint Valentine

Love is the only war worth dying for
Lift me up to knock me down
I'm all yours for now



The Foreboding Sense of Impending Happiness

By your heartstrings I am hanging from a dream
Swinging in the warm autumn breeze

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up
No more

Tiptoeing along a strand of your hair
Suspended between these thoughts and actions
Miles above reality

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up
Opening up
