ALESANA LYRICS

1. The Dark Wood Of Error


“Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. Our story is about to begin.”

Salvation cries, they're all I can see,
this darkness farther in me.
And I might be crazy just for looking at you,
I must be crazy if I think that it's true.

The things I've done to be with you,
they echo in my every move.
And I might be crazy just for looking at you,
I must be crazy if I think that it's true.

(Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
ché la diritta via era smarrita.

Esta selva selavaggia e aspra e forte
che nel pensier rinova la paura!

Io non so ben ridir com’i’ v’intrai,
tant’era pien di sonno a quel punto
che la verace via abbandonai.

Guardai in alto e vidi le sue spalle
vestite già de’ raggi del pianeta
che mena dritto altrui per ogne calle.

Così l’animo mio, ch’ancor fuggiva,
si volse a retro a rimirar lo passo
che non lasciò già mai persona viva.)

Can you hear them cry?
Can you hear them cry?
Can you hear them, hear them cry?
Can you hear them, hear them cry, cry?


2. A Forbidden Dance


Stay to the path
Trust only your faith, to falter is to hasten your doom
I dare not say my hope is slipping away
Such gleaming fangs mock the gilded gates
The way of the true
Tell me what to do sweet spirit

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Your wildest dreams have come true!
Welcome to what I call hell!
Help me!

Infatuation has strangled me again
There's no resisting the tangled web of your secret fantasy
A strange sensation is falling over me
I may be blind but I can see your kiss will punish me
Your kiss will ruin me

Well, here we go!
I tear myself from the beaten path never to look back
And still I glance, the lure of a forbidden dance
I'm hypnotized by the sodid nymph who races from me
Suddenly, my eyes see clearly

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Your wildest dreams have come true!
Welcome to what I call hell!
Help me!

Infatuation has strangled me again
There's no resisting the tangled web of your secret fantasy
A strange sensation is falling over me
I may be blind but I can see your kiss will punish me
Your kiss will ruin me

I fall down on my knees in anticipation of the dawning
Curiosity is laughing
I decide that if I'm to die here I will not go calmly
I will not go down without a fight
Help me!

Infatuation has strangled me again
There's no resisting the tangled web of your secret fantasy
A strange sensation is falling over me
I may be blind but I can see your kiss will punish me
Your kiss will ruin me

Your wildest dreams have come true


3. Hand In Hand With The Damned


I don't trust myself
I'm trapped drowning in despair, I'm poisonous
I slammed the door and locked it shut and now disaster plagues my thoughts
Let's drink to the dead, "cheers to what's ahead"
I'm poisonous

Sweet temptress, I can see it in your eyes
You're moving on without me
So it ends tonight, I guess this is goodbye
Selfishly you say you're better off without me
And it ends tonight...well baby save your breath

Won't you please have mercy?
Before you push me away let me try to change your mind
Oh wanderer,
If you think this is fun, just you wait till I'm done!

Blessed fortune screams,
"Why have you forsaken me?" there's no escape
I never should have lost my way
And now I'm stranded out at sea chasing a lie?
There's no escape, I'm losing the sky

Sweet temptress, I can see it in your eyes
You're moving on without me
So it ends tonight, I guess this is goodbye
Selfishly you say you're better off without me
And it ends tonight...well baby save your breath

Imprisoned soul seized in a chamber of feculent horror
Suffer all you must but suffer silently
Still your cursed tongue, stay your blighted abandon
In your eternal death you hunger for rotten mire
For in your mortal life it was this which was your gift to man
Prepare to walk hand in hand with the damned

God can't help you and angels won't save you
Your unrequited prayers will be the bane of your existence
Prepare to walk hand in hand with the damned

I am poisonous
Is there a way for me to say that you should stay?
I need to know you'll miss me when I'm gone
I'll cherish you until the day I die, a twisted way to make you mine

I can see it in your eyes, you're moving on without me
So it ends tonight, I guess this is goodbye
Selfishly you say you're better off without me
And it end tonight...well baby save your breath

Won't you please have mercy?
Before you push away let me try to change your mind
Oh wanderer, if you think this is fun, just you wait till I am done!


4. Beyond The Sacred Glass


Quietly I am screaming for help
I calm down and steady myself
Collapse to the ground when I realize I can't breathe
could this be happening? What’s happening to me?
All the walls are closing in on me and confusion makes it hard to see
Still my pounding heart is bleeding for you
I know the truth and I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat
Why the hell am I here?
I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat

Why am I trying the undying, a ghost of such elegance?
Oh why am I racing to be facing a vision of something so perfect?

I am willing to give whatever it takes to find forgiveness for my mistakes
So I'm going to take a chance and invite the unknown to a deadly dance

I have laid eyes on you and yet it does seem as if the earth moved
I know the truth and I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat
I will have you tonight!
I start to sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat
You will be mine tonight!

Why am I trying the undying?
A ghost of such elegance
Oh why am I racing to be facing a vision of something so perfect

I am willing to give whatever it takes to find forgiveness for my mistakes
So I'm going to take a chance and invite the unknown to a deadly dance

As I rise to conquer the demons I sense that the darkness awaits

The road I walk is paved with a thousand unmarked graves

I am willing to give whatever it takes to find forgiveness of my mistakes
So I'm going to take a chance and invite the unknown to a deadly dance

As I rise to conquer the demons I sense that the darkness awaits


5. The Temptress


My love, try to understand me when I say you torture me
Your lips they beg for me to get you alone
I want you to know it's the sway of your hips
You taste so sweet cruel temptress, I'm at your feet

I can tell by the way you move that you want me to want you

Are you happy now that I've figured out I was just the victim
In a game of lies and lustful tension?

Your lips they beg for me to get you alone
I want you to know it's the sway of your hips
You taste so sweet, cruel temptress. I'm at your feet

I can tell by the way you move that you want me to want you

Are you happy now that I've figured out I was just the victim
In a game of lies and lustful tension?
I can't believe I fell for you
I was wrong, I am so confused
A foolish mistake

I gaze across the chasm that divides me from her, my prize
And drink her beauty
I let the heady aroma of perfume riding on the hot wind saturate me
I train my ears to the creaking of the bridge spanning the gap to her
I throw caution into that wind of passion and continue down the path
The path of the unknown.

I'm losing control and I want all of you, I ache to swallow you
I'm losing control, you're body screams for me, it's destroying me

I can not resist the temptress of the night
I'm coming for you, I want you, I need you
As the earth quakes I will deflower you
Oh how my head swims, oh how my heart yearns
I'm coming for you
Our flesh will become one and we'll never speak of what we've become

It's what you want. I'm gone! I'm gone! I'm gone!

So it seems that we were nothing
I'm giving up
Are you happy now that I’ve figured out I was just a victim
in a game of lies and lustful tension?
I can't believe I fell for you
I was wrong, I am so confused
a foolish mistake


6. Circle VII: Sins Of The Lion


Oh, the violence..

The ocean beckons with it’s gaze
Pulling me beneath the waves
Their fury is second to none!

Oh the violence..

It’s clawing at my burning skin
Filling my heart with it’s sin,
human reason is washed away!
Am I the first to be fooled by
your dirty little trick?
I guess I should have seen this coming,
I will not forget
I will not forget
(Is washed away)

I’m the one who has to swallow water,
that’s what I get for chasing after you!
You should be hanging by your neck,
swinging there silently!

I can’t stop the bleeding
Tell me that you want me if you need me..
Tell me that you love me if you want me..
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
Telling me you want me, do you want me?
Telling me you want me, do you love me?

It is quite clear you despise me
by showing your face here
And you never even told me
why you disappeared!
why you disappeared!
(Is washed away)

I’m the one who has to swallow water,
that’s what I get for chasing after you!
You should be hanging by your neck,
swinging there silently!

I can’t stop the bleeding
Tell me that you want me if you need me..
Tell me that you love me if you want me..
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
Telling me you want me, do you want me?
Telling me you want me, do you love me?

A bone chilling cry erupts!
A bone chilling cry erupts!

(I’ve seen those eyes but not that smile)
A bone chilling cry erupts!
(I’ve seen those eyes but not that blank stare)
A bone chilling cry erupts!
(I’ve seen those eyes but not that blank stare)
A bone chilling cry erupts!
(I’ve seen those eyes but not that stare)
The tides of sin are stained with blood!

I can’t stop the bleeding
Tell me that you want me if you need me..
Tell me that you love me if you want me..
Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
Telling me you want me, do you want me?
Telling me you want me, do you love me?

You will be sorry when
He spills the blood from your throat!
You’ll be torn limb from limb, tramp!

There will be hell to pay, hell to pay!


7. Vestige


Washed on a shore of enchanted lies and I am breathless
Struggling for reason
How could it be such a wondrous place is trapped in silence?
Give them redemption
Time is melting away. I can't explain. But my eyes are begging to stay
I must say a sunny day helps to push the memories away

“I can't imagine my leaving here”
“It sounds so peaceful. Living in silence”
“A perfect vision of ecstasy, a dreamy palace”
Home to the soulless”
Time is melting away. I can't explain. But my eyes are begging to stay
I must say a sunny day helps to push the memories away

Walk along a shore of an ocean of rage
Gazing in amazement at each streaming wave
Everywhere that I look there's agony and pain
What's the point of fighting when there's nothing to save?
Time is melting away. I can't explain. But my eyes are begging to stay
I must say a sunny day helps to push the memories away

Caution must be obeyed…on an island of the decayed


8. Lullaby Of The Crucified


My angel close your eyes, I'll be your lover tonight.
Pitiful lullaby, I'll be your lover tonight.

My own misery is taunting me.
The air stings my lungs, I can barely see.
Wicked eyes surrounding me, the trees are watching silently.
I could try to run but baby what's the point?

I may never know
(I don't see the point.)
why I let you go.

My body is aching.
I'm losing my mind!
There's nothing to hold onto.
My angel close your eyes, I'll be your lover tonight.
I'm tired of trying.
I'm sick of waiting!
If there's nothing that I can do.
A pitiful lullaby to sing the tortured to sleep

We could settle down and change the end.
Nothing but time, start over again.
All the little things you do that make me fall in love with you.
Have led me to this, a bittersweet abyss.

I may never know
(a vexatious kiss.)
why I let you go.

My body is aching.
I'm losing my mind!
There's nothing to hold onto.
My angel close your eyes, I'll be your lover tonight.
I'm tired of trying.
I'm sick of waiting!
If there's nothing that I can do.
A pitiful lullaby to sing the tortured to sleep

I will follow you into the night my darling eyes.
I would do anything to be lying with you as I watch you dream.

I have been reborn!
I have broken free! I'm free! I'm free!
You can't deny me, do not defy me!
I'm drunk on lust and sovereignty!
Abandon all hope for beyond time I can stand!
I have been reborn!
Darling, tonight we say goodbye!
Sing a touching lullaby and we'll watch the angels cry.


9. Before Him All Shall Scatter


Vid'io piú di mille anime distrutte.
Fuggir cosí dinanzi ad un ch'al passo.
Passava Stige con le piante asciutte.
Dal volto rimovea quell' aere grasso.
Menando la sinistra innanzi spesso;
Ahi quanto mi parea pien di disdegno!
Venne a la porta e con una verghetta.
l'aperse, che non v'ebbe alcun ritegno.
O cacciati del ciel, gente dispetta,
Cominció elli in su l'orribil soglia,
Ond' esta oltracotanza in coi s'alletta?
Poi si rivolse per la strada lorda,
E non fé motta a noi, ma fé sembiante.
D'omo cui altra cura stringa e morda.


10. Labyrinth


I'm getting stronger and I'm no longer fighting by myself.
For now locked doors are opening for me!
No turning back, I have to get out, get out, get out!
Before it's too late.
My child, I am the way!

Do you think it's wrong of me to long for you despite how you taste?
I'm not the one to give up on you now.
I'll never leave the ground without having to let go, yeah!
Every time I try I'm further from the sky.
I wish that I could let go, I'm lost in your beautiful trance.

Grit my teeth, you're mine, I'll make it painless!
Say your last goodbyes, I'll make it painless!
Take a breath and I will make it painless!
Guess again, guess again, guess again!

I'm exhausted.
I have to get up, get up, get up!
Get up on my feet.
My sweet, I am the light!

Do you think it's wrong of me to long for you despite how you taste?
I'm not the one to give up on you now.
I'll never leave the ground without having to let go, yeah!
Every time I try it just gets harder to find.
Darling cry for me!

Call to me, there's nowhere to run!
Sing to me, there's no way to climb!
There's nowhere to hide, this is where I'll die!
My God, why!?

In reverie I smile imagining when I will lie close to you.
And we won't have to worry but watch the sky dance for us instead.

I think I want to I want to sing you to sleep, with you I want to dream.

I'm not the one to give up on you now.
I'll never leave the ground without having to let go, yeah!
Every time I try I'm further from the sky.
I wish that I could let go, I'm lost in your beautiful trance.

Suddenly I'm floating so far from you.


11. The Fiend


Blessed smoke bellows from the beast!!!!
Bow to the gears and worship the machine!!!

Is it so?
This can't be happening......
Why can't they see?
Seas of children are bound, gagged, and led into the flames!!!!

Blind are leading the blind into a disaster!
I'm the only one who seems to care!
If you decide to worship the chaos,
I will not wait and watch as you burn.

All must kneel before the alter, the veiled will be exalted!!
We are the flock!!
They do not hear a word I say.
In the God's harbor all shall rest, become part of the master!!
We are devine!!
I can not save them all!

Blind are leading the blind into a disaster!
I'm the only one who seems to care!
If you decide to worship the chaos,
I will not wait and watch as you burn.

(I will not wait and watch as you burn.)

Should we go?
They all seem so content.
We should go and become part of him.

I need you to trust me now.
Don't move, I'll figure this out.
Forget what anyone said.
Just take my hand or we'll both be dead.

Blind are leading the blind into a disaster!
I'm the only one who seems to care!
If you decide to worship the chaos,
I will not wait and watch as you burn.

(I will not wait and watch as you burn.)

They'll never be able to see that they grave this captivity


12. Welcome To The Vanity Faire


I search high and low but I can’t find you
Still your vexing laugh entices me
Close enough to touch but then you run away
I’m about to quit and then you say,

“lose yourself in the vanity faire!”
Insanity is whispering to me, woah!

What I believe is just not making sense of what I see
Show me your reflection, a sly disguise, is it the girl you want to be?
A porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby?
Drape yourself in fragile fantasy

I see your reflection, a sly disguise, and it’s not the girl your want to be?
A fraudulent smile
what you see is what you’ve asked for, but it’s never what you are
A cold-hearted tale

Lost in a maze of beautiful deception
and just like before I’m at the mercy of a phantom
when will it end? How will it end? And will you be in arms?
I just can’t take anymore of this pointless search for nothing

Insanity is whispering to me woah!
What I believe is just not making sense of what I see

Show me your reflection, a sly disguise, is it the girl you want to be?
A fraudulent smile
What you see is what you’ve asked for, but it’s never what you are

Hey hey hey!

Silence, oh cruel harlot!
Silence! Your filthy tongue will be stilled!

Laughter echoing, I’m unraveling tonight

Silence! I’ve had enough!
Silence! No longer will you stop me!

Your vanity so patiently will steal your soul
You’re hideous..
Mirror, mirror on the wall, a liar to us all, you’ll be the one to fall
The eye of the beholder knows the truth

Show me your reflection, a sly disguise,Is it the girl you want to be?
A porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby!
Drape yourself in fragile fantasy

I see you reflection, a sly disguise, And it’s not the girl you want to be?
A fraudulent smile

What you see is what you’ve asked for, but it’s never what you are
What you see is what you’ve asked for, What you see is what you get
A cold-hearted tale!!!!!

Attack the mirrors, shatter the prison
One by one reflections fall, come on, come on, come on, and come on!
Until I destroy them all, come on, come on, come on, and come on!


13. The Wanderer


A few prisms of glass offer litter comfort in the blackness
The desolate emptiness drinking every last drop of life that’s left in me

I pray for absolution, let me return to the path of a tempting lie…
Lead me towards the light

Truly I’ve run awry
My compass is spinning in the shadows
It’s funny how we believe the things that we tell ourselves to
And our hearts simply follow

I pray for absolution, let me return to the path of a tempting lie..
Lead me towards the lights
I pray for the absolution, let me return to the path of a tempting lie...
Lead me towards the light


14. A Gilded Masquerade


As the water drips from the sky I start to wonder

If I’m still alive

Then I have to find an answer
could it be that it was a dream
and I’m still beside her?
Right before my eyes
such a big surprise the water stops.

Wickedness will rain
and drown us in her sorrow (sorrow, we will drown)
If I hope to survive
I must think faster
I'm losing ground (I’m losing ground)

Should I pull back her veil?
You had the best of me (the best of me)
as I live is just not wrong.
I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness.

You had me convinced.
(You had me convinced)
That together we could fly.
Until I started scratching at the surface (started scratching out my way!)
Your body is an illness

Temples crashing down all around me
Heading...

(Heading towards me bring)
The golden city falls

And with it our eyes go up in flames (go up in flames)

Should I pull back her veil?
You had the best of me (the best of me)
as I live is just not wrong
I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness

You had me convinced (you had me convinced)
That together we could fly
Until I started scratching at the surface (started scratching out my way!)
Your body is an illness.

He is watching me under
my blood runs cold.
There's no need to feel alone
I feel like throwing myself

Who are you, who are you, who are you?
Yeah!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

I pulled back her veil
You had the best of me (the best of me)
As I live is just not wrong
I may be wrong but your brilliance is my darkness

You had me convinced (you had me convinced)
that together we could fly

Until I started scratching at the surface

(Started scratching out my way!)

Your body is an illness (I may never be the same again)
I may never be the same again.


15. The Best Laid Plans Of Mice And Marionettes


There's no escape from this awful place!

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?

Take a look around, the scenes are all the same.
I can see the veil right behind me.
I'll close my eyes and this will go away.
Have I ever said this before!?
If I just keep moving will I be okay or panic in the mayhem!?
I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to being to start all over again.

The truth has finally shown it's face.
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice, you blinded me and stole my voice!
I will see you soon.

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?

Do I ever dare to question fate's design or submit to such a bleak destiny?
There has to be another way than this, It's a hopeless fight anyway!
I will not give up and wash away the sin, I'm thirsting for the carnage!
I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin to start all over again.

The truth has finally shown it's face.
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice, you blinded me and stole my voice!

I will no longer take flight from you...
Now that you've got me, what's next?!
Let me help.
Now I destroy you, demon!
Sinew is ripped to shreds!
Stripped form your body, crimson!
Fury of righteousness will now consume you in death!

It's the sweet, sweet song of your heartbeat.
All I feel is a memory.
Of the night I laid in bed with you.
It's the easy sound of your breathing.
Telling me what I should've seen.
Where was I when you fell fast asleep?

I can't live without you by my side.

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin, to start all over again!

It's round and round and round we go.
Someone please let me know just what it takes to begin, to start all over again!


16. And Now For The Final Illusion


Wake up... Wake up... Wake up...

My eyes open wide as I wake, panting, some say that dreams have deeper meaning

That they are cries from our subconscious

I feel strangely compelled to recount this one to my love,
My Annabel, shaking her gently, I wonder why her flesh has the chill of virgin snow.
My thoughts are disrupted as reality hits me like a bold of lightning and I scream.

We are the crucified, we are the virtuous, we are the damned.
We are the crucified, this is our nightmare, let's pray we never fall asleep.

Imprisoned beneath the world where the soulless dwell

Lies a place that the damned call home

A place where the virtuous hide in fear

A place we see only in our nightmares

A place where the sun is silent
