LYRICS

SWEET SACRIFICE

It's true, we're all a little insane

But it's so clear

Now that I'm unchained

Fear is only in our minds

Taking over all the time

Fear is only in our minds

But it's taking over all the time

You poor, sweet, innocent thing

Dry your eyes and testify

You know you live to break me

Don't deny, sweet sacrifice

One day I'm gonna forget your name
And one sweet day
You're gonna drown in my lost pain

Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time
Fear is only in our minds
But it's taking over all the time

You poor, sweet, innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
And oh, you love to hate me
Don't you, honey?
I'm your sacrifice

I dream in darkness
I sleep to die
Erase the silence
Erase my life


Do you wonder [Our burning ashes]
Why you hate? [Blacken the day]
Are you still so weak [A world of nothingness]
To survive your mistakes? [Blow me away]

You poor, sweet, innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
You know you live to break me

Don't deny, sweet sacrifice

CALL ME WHEN YOU'RE SOBER
Don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me?
Come find me
Make up your mind

Should I let you fall?
Lose it all?
So maybe you can remember yourself
Can't keep believing
We're only deceiving ourselves
And I'm sick of the lie
And you're too late

Don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me?
Come find me
Make up your mind

Couldn't take the blame
Sick with shame
Must be exhausting to lose your own game
Selfishly hated, no wonder you're jaded
You can't play the victim this time
And you're too late

Don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
You want me?
Come find me
Make up your mind

You never call me when you're sober
You only want it cause it's over
It's over!

How could I have burned paradise?
How could I?
You were never mine!

So don't cry to me
If you loved me
You would be here with me
Don't lie to me
Just get your things
I've made up your mind
WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
Feels like the weight of the world
Like God in Heaven gave me a turn
Don't cling to me, I swear I can't fix you
Still in the dark, can you fix me?

Freefall, freefall, all through life

If you love me
Then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be
She's nothing to me

Feels like the weight of the world
Like all my screaming has gone unheard
And oh, I know you don't believe in me
Safe in the dark, how can you see?

Freefall, freefall, all through life

If you love me
Then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be

If you love me
Then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I was
If you love me
Then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be
LITHIUM
Lithium - don't wanna lock me up inside
Lithium - don't wanna forget how it feels without
Lithium - I wanna stay in love with my sorrow
Oh, but God, I wanna let it go

Come to bed, don't make me sleep alone
Couldn't hide the emptiness you let it show
Never wanted it to be so cold
Just didn't drink enough to say you love me

I can't hold on to me
Wonder what's wrong with me

Lithium - don't wanna lock me up inside
Lithium - don't wanna forget how it feels without
Lithium - I wanna stay in love with my sorrow

Oh! Don't wanna let it lay me down this time
Drown my will to fly
Here in the darkness I know myself
Can't break free until I let it go
Let me go

Darling, I forgive you after all
Anything is better than to be alone
And in the end I guess I had to fall
Always find my place among the ashes

I can't hold on to me
Wonder what's wrong with me

Lithium - don't wanna lock me up inside
Lithium - don't wanna forget how it feels without
Lithium - I wanna stay in love with you
Oh, I'm gonna let it go
CLOUD NINE
If you wanna live, let live
If you wanna go, let go
I'm not afraid to dream
To sleep, sleep forever
I don't need to touch the sky
I just want to feel that high
And you refuse to lift me

Guess it wasn't real after all
Guess it wasn't real all along
[I'm all alone]

If I fall and all is lost
It's where I belong

If you wanna live, let live
If you wanna go, let go
I'm never gonna be your sweet, sweet surrender

Guess it wasn't real after all
Guess it wasn't real all along
[I'm all alone]

If I fall and all is lost
No light to lead the way
[Never thought that it would end up this way]
Remember that all alone
Is where I belong

In a dream
Will you give your love to me?
Beg my broken heart to beat
Save my life
Change my mind

If I fall and all is lost
No light to lead the way
[Never thought that it would end this way]
Remember that all alone
Is where I belong
SNOW WHITE QUEEN
Stoplight lock the door
Don't look back
Undress in the dark
And hide from you
All of you

You'll never know the way your words have haunted me
I can't believe you'd ask these things of me [ever and ever]
You don't know me [ever and ever]
Now and ever

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'Cause all I want is you

Wake up in a dream
Frozen fear
All your hands on me
I can't scream
I can't scream

I can't escape the twisted way you think of me
I feel you in my dreams and I don't sleep [ever and ever]
I don't sleep [ever and ever]

Say you belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'Cause all I want is you

I can't save your life
Though nothing I bleed for is more tormenting
I'm losing my mind
And you just stand there and stare as my world divides

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'Cause all I want is you

All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
Forever and ever
Ever and ever
LACRYMOSA
Out on your own
Cold and alone again
Can this be what you really wanted, baby?

[Lacrimosa]
Blame it on me
[Dies illa]
Set your guilt free
[Lacrimosa]
Nothing can hold you back now
[Dona eis requiem]

Now that you're gone
I feel like myself again
Grieving the things I can't repair and willing

[Lacrimosa]
To let you blame it on me
[Dies illa]
And set your guilt free
[Lacrimosa]
I don't want to hold you back now love
[Dona eis requiem]

I can't change who I am
Not this time
I wont lie to keep you near me
And in this short life
There's no time to waste on giving up
My love wasn't enough

[Lacrimosa]
And you can blame it on me
[Dies illa]
Just set your guilt free, honey
[Lacrimosa]
I don't want to hold you back now love
[Dona eis requiem]

Amen
LIKE YOU
Stay low, soft, dark, and dreamless
Far beneath my nightmares and loneliness
I hate me for breathing without you
I don't want to feel anymore for you

Grieving for you
I'm not grieving for you
Nothing real love can't undo
And though I may have lost my way
All paths lead straight to you

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you

Halo, blinding wall between us
Melt away and leave us alone again
The humming, haunted somewhere out there
I believe our love can see us through in death

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

You're not alone
No matter what they told you
You're not alone
I'll be right beside you forevermore

I long to be like you sis
Lie cold in the ground like you did
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
And as we lay in silent bliss
I know you remember me

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you
LOSE CONTROL
You don't remember my name
I don't really care
Can we play the game your way?
Can I really lose control?

Just once in my life
I think it'd be nice
Just to lose control, just once
[With all the pretty flowers] in the dust

Mary had a lamb
His eyes black as coals
If we play very quiet, my lamb
Mary never has to know

Just once in my life
I think it'd be nice
Just to lose control, just once

If I cut you down to a thing I can use
I fear there'd be nothing good left of you

Just to lose control, just once
THE ONLY ONE

All the tuna fish are singing in a tuna afternoon
Quack quack quack

You know you're not the only one


When they all come crashing down - midflight
You know you're not the only one
When they're so alone
They find a back door out of life
You know you're not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

So afraid to open your eyes, hypnotized
You know you're not the only one
Never understood this life
And you're right I don't deserve
But you know I'm not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

Don't look down
Don't look into the eyes of the world beneath you
Don't look down
You'll fall down
You'll become their sacrifice

Right or wrong
Can't hold on to the fear
That I'm lost without you
If I can't feel, I'm not mine
I'm not real

All our lives
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies
I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

YOUR STAR

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
Though I patiently waited, bedside
For the death of today
I can't see your star
The mechanical lights of Lisbon
Frightened it away

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts in pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
How can the darkness feel so wrong?

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts in pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

So far away
It's growing colder without your love
Why can't you feel me calling your name?
Can't break the silence
It's breaking me

[Alma surda, loucura] All my fears [onde está sua alma?]
[Loucura, toda sozinha] Turn to rage

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out now

And nothing worth fighting for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

ALL THAT I'M LIVING FOR

All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore alone at night

I can feel the night beginning
Separate me from the living
Understanding me
After all I've seen
Piecing every thought together
Find the words to make me better
If I only knew how to pull myself apart

All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore alone at night
All that I'm wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

I believe that dreams are sacred
Take my darkest fears and play them
Like a lullaby
Like a reason why
Like a play of my obsessions
Make me understand the lesson
So I'll find myself
So I won't be lost again

All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore alone at night
All that I'm wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

Guess I thought I'd have to change the world
To make you see me
To be the one
I could have run forever
But how far would I have come
Without mourning your love?

All that I'm living for
All that I'm dying for
All that I can't ignore alone at night
All that I'm wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

Should it hurt to love you?
Should I feel like I do?
Should I lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

GOOD ENOUGH

Under your spell again
I can't say no to you
Crave my heart and it's bleeding in your hand
I can't say no to you

Shouldn't have let you torture me so sweetly
Now I can't let go of this dream
I can't breathe but I feel
Good enough
I feel good enough for you

Drink up sweet decadence
I can't say no to you
And I've completely lost myself
and I don't mind
I can't say no to you

Shouldn't have let you
conquer me completely
Now I can't let go of this dream
Can't believe that I feel
Good enough
I feel good enough
It's been such a long time coming
but I feel good

And I'm still waiting for the rain to fall
Pour real life down on me
Cause I can't hold on to anything this good enough
Am I good enough for you to love me too?

So take care what you ask of me
'Cause I can't say no
