Burials

“The Sinking Night”
Blackness drips down from both of my hands
The gold in my palm was mistaken for sand
Can you feel it?

The blackness it drips down from both of my eyes
The sand that you made has taken my sight
I can feel it

Over the wind
Under the rain
Out of the chaos
I can hear your name
Through the sinking night
On this sinking night
I see your face
(On this sinking night)
On this sinking night

 

“I Hope You Suffer”
I got two letters from you
Last words of the runaway
Your love was written so true
And now I can’t speak your name
I faced destruction and you just killed me and walked away
I gave my heart to the cruel
Now it will not beat again

I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
Just like I suffered

No one will ever know you
Deny the last one who cares
Intoxicate with the new
Pretend I’m no longer here
I opened my heart to you
You lied just to reach inside

Now with the faith you removed our hope for forgiveness dies

I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
Just like I suffered

I’ve seen my darkest days
You gave each one to me
I’ve seen my darkest days
You gave each one to me
You have been lost for days
May you find my darkness

I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
I hope you suffer
I hope you do
Just like I, I fucking suffered

Just like you
You made me suffer
I hope you, I hope you do

 

 

“A Deep Slow Panic”
I watched you go out the door
With poise I’d not seen before
I saw you shine, you shine
I collapsed to the floor
It promised it’d miss me more and said,
“True love is mine.
I missed you.
Did you miss me?”

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

I haven’t left here for days
My panic keeps me awake as he unwinds inside
He told me I should have known
That he hated the way I’d grown to love soft lies
She lied
“Do you miss her?
Like I miss you?”

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

[Instrumental]

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

Slowly, I’ll swallow your fears
For all of those years
How could you let them consume me?
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

 

“No Resurrection”
I wanted to save you
Give breath that escaped you
But you stayed down (stayed down)
To resuscitate you
Breath my breath back into you
You stayed out (stayed out)

I wanted to shake you
To scream to awaken you
You stayed down (stayed out)

In your slumber you saw everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don’t you know that heaven is slow?
Don’t remake our heaven

I wanted to save us
Wept words that escaped us
But you stayed out (You shut them out)
I fell down to face you
To find you were wakeful
And you’d forced me out, I’m nothing now

In your slumber you saved everything
Everything but me

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?
Don’t you know that heaven is slow?
Don’t remake our heaven

Why must we stop?
Why must we stop now?
Why must you crush our glow?

Don’t you know that heaven is slow?
Don’t erase our heaven

 

 

“17 Crimes”
If you had a day,
would you give me a moment?
Would you allow our play
to leave no bone unbroken?

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

If I weren’t so cold,
we could unfreeze this moment.
And as the world grow old,
We’ll leave no heart unbroken.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Tomorrow cannot be like this.
And even though it’s such a simple world,
tomorrow cannot be like this.
Tomorrow they will take a stand.
We’ll leave no heart unbroken.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love, with poisoning.
Only bring your pretty, frightful gifts to me
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s love, like 17.
I’m in love with your new screams.
Only bring those pretty, frightful things to me.
Let’s love, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s run, and kill like 17 now.

Let’s love, and kill like 17.

 

“The Conductor”
Drop like the needle
Today I felt the drain
I’ll climb back up to you
On ladders of the rain

Break them down, shake up their beliefs
I’ll show them, show them a believer
300,000 amps
And I’m your warm receiver

When they kill the lights
You’ll remain my conductor
And if they didn’t drain your life
I’ll become your conductor
Don’t cut the connection

Bleed in to black clouds
And I will lick them clean
Turn to a tourniquet
And cinch yourself to me

Strike down now, shake their frail beliefs
And make them new born believers
300,000 amps
And I’m your warm receiver

When they kill the lights
You’ll remain my conductor
And if they didn’t drain your life
I’ll become your conductor

When they kill the lights
You’ll remain my conductor
You’ll remain my conductor
You’ll remain my conductor

 

“Heart Stops”
Oh, my pretty precious stone
Just left me in ribbons
With my heart sliced carefully
You wear it like a cheerful bow

There’s a light that you now adore
But the bringer is cast down
I have never been before
So unhappy in my whole life

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
I found my last light but it died like all the others (all the others)

Oh, my painful fatal flaw
May your cruelty find you
May the scars you left in me
Dig into you twice as deep

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
I found my last light but it died like all the others

I know you’ll look away while I’m crying
I know you’ll wear that bow with a smile
Everything I gave you, it was wasted
Love further down, adore that denial

I stopped feeling numb, now I have to be
Because I trusted you I cannot trust another
Heart stops beating, what was brutality?
You were my last light so I’ll die like all the others

Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
You bathed in love light so I’ll die like all the others, all the others

 

 

“Rewind”
Lie awake, keep your cold eyes closed
Feel it crawl upon your chest
Bear it’s teeth and steal your breath
Stay awake as its creeping close
If you’re brave enough you’ll see
As it stares it looks a lot like me
It looks like me

Though there’s no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There’s no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Draw a line that cannot be crossed
Make a circle out of salt
Knowing it was all your fault
Hide inside, call your doting dogs
As their weak servility
Feeds your emptiness, remember me
In solitude you will sense me

Though there’s no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There’s no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Forever feel it as it’s gnawing
Forever crawling, ever crawling
Never caring always smiling
Here to feed when you are falling

There’s no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There’s no way, you can’t apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind
We rewind
I float now, forever
You did this. We rewind

 

 

“The Embrace”
Watching it crumble
Might have eased the hurt
Feeling it disappear
Only made worse

Pulling it piece by piece
Slicing up ribbons could dismiss
To slowly disintegrate
Could have been the perfect gift

May you feel this, while you sleep
Push the poisonous thorns in you
May you feel this while you wake
Bear your poisonous thorns

Walk into traffic
Running with open knives
Searching for mercy here
That I’m too weak to find

To take my deepest breath
I walk into the raging sea
To drown out this emptiness
It’s all you have left for me

May you feel this, while you sleep
Push the poisonous thorns in you
May you feel this while you wake
Bear your poisonous thorns

I hope you feel this
I hope that you can feel this
As it’s fading the darkness shifts (the darkness shifts)
This may be the perfect gift

May you feel this, while you sleep
Push the poisonous thorns in you
May you feel this while you wake
Bear your poisonous thorns

May you feel this, may you feel this while you wake
May you feel this, may you feel this while you wake

 

“Wild”
Every one of my words, not worth believing
Every promise I kept, kept you deceiving
Gave golden years that you erased. I split my heart and watched you take
Every drop of my soul and leave me bleeding
Yeah, you taught me this

True love wont’ be remembered
My regret will last forever
Because I thought you’d never

Yeah, you brought me here

I was painfully true you were pretending
You told me this was heaven then you ascended
I gave you life, now pray for death, breathed into you, you stole my breath
You told me right from the start, we started ending
I believed in you

True love wont’ be remembered
My regret will last forever
Because I thought you’d never

Yeah, you brought me here

Now I’m singing ashamed
That all my words are the same
Because I’m singing
Betrayed

Now I’m singing ashamed
That all my words are the same
Because I’m singing
Betrayed

Yeah, you brought me here

True love wont’ be remembered
My regret will last forever
True love wont’ be remembered
My regret will last forever
Because I thought you’d never

 

“Greater Than 84”
There’s an open sky and an empty city
Where the rain falls of the night.
Upon precious flames, we once found so pretty
Our frail and only light.

Love is all that’s left,
And I’m emotionless.

You won’t read it in the papers
In this time.
Keep your hands clean
Just read my mind.

We’re trapped between the nightmares,
And I fear
The future’s here it’s 1985,
It’s 1985.

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?
Oh…

All the emptiness overfills this city
So you’ll be queen tonight.
As you overthrow looking pale and pretty
I welcome your requite.

They told us love can save,
So we prepared our graves.

You won’t read it in the papers
In this time.
Keep your hands clean
Just read my mind.

We’re trapped between the nightmares
And I fear
The future’s here it’s 1985,
It’s 1985.
Can you read my mind?

Will you hold my hand as we count the hours?
The hours?
Will you hold my hand as we count down the hours?
The hours?

Standing beneath the meteor showers.
Oh!

You won’t read it in the papers
In this time.
Keep your hands clean
Just read my mind.

We’re trapped between the nightmares,
And I fear
The future’s here it’s 1985,
It’s 1985.
Can you read my mind?

 

“Anxious”
Tear into silence, my ears begin to ring
Begin to ring in the new sound anxiously
Oh, I am anxious and aching, breathing the burning air
Caring for something that is not there

Knowing what’s fated, begin my fatal flight
Flying obscenely into the light
But the light will evade me to bring down punishment
Punishing soundly it lets me live

Swing the serenade (I heard it swing)
Swing love down and find the saddest song
I heard you swing the promises (You’ll watch me swing now)
Swing love now and choke what we’ve become

Black without blindness, my eyes begin to sting
As my lips part to poison, sweet poisoning
Oh god, I feel like I’m dying. I’ve found death finally
And it feels like heaven, I’ll never reach

Swing the serenade (I heard it swing)
Swing love down and find the saddest song
I heard you swing the promises (You’ll watch me swing now)
Swing love now and choke what we’ve become

Swinging now, will you watch me?
Swinging now, will you watch me?
Turn it down. Drown it slowly
Is it off? I’m still listening
Swinging now, will you watch me?
Swinging now, will you watch me?
Turn it down. Drown it slowly
Is it off? I’m still listening

Swing the serenade (I heard it swing)
Swing love down and find the saddest song
I heard you swing the promises (You’ll watch me swing now)
Swing love now and choke what we’ve become

(I’ll bite your lips though I know better than this)
(This is a death I cant resist)

 

 

“The Face Beneath The Waves”
Someone said they saw me fall apart
Part of me collected and destroyed
Tell me what it’s like to hold a heart
When it shatters

Someone said that they ran into her
Asked if there was any word of me
And she swore that everything we were
Never mattered
(There is a face beneath the waves)

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I am

Are you somewhere listening to me?
Have these whispers finally found the cracks?
White walls won’t forever keep these screams
They will shatter

Secretly, you know that I’m still here
While you’re being held you’re so alone
For you killed the only one who cared
Let it shatter.
(There is a voice within the walls)

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I am

What do you do
When my soul invites you?
Oh, you’ll see me again
You know this will never end
What do you do
When your heart reminds you?
Oh, you’ll put me to death
But I will return again

I will return again
I will return to you
I will return again
I am part of you
I will be with you again, with you again
I am
