Love?

This love it’s about control

I’ll wait for the night to come
So far, suicide at home
For I’m not the man you know…
This love, IS ABOUT CONTROL

YOU FUCKERS!

ALL IN THE NAME OF LOVE

From the 2003 Album Frail Words Collapse

“94 Hours”
94 hours of regret for me to realize what I held

Go!

I won’t let go
I won’t let go
Now I
I won’t let go
Now I
I won’t let go
The torment of your eyes has awakened my soul.
The torment of your eyes has awakened my soul.
The pain of a moment’s time will forever beg your forgiveness
Forgiveness
94 hours for me to realize
I held unfading beauty
I held your innocence

Band: Through the Eyes of the Dead
From: Florence, South Carolina
Formed: 2003

From the 2005 Album Bloodlust

“Two Inches from a Main Artey”
Broken glass, broken glass is the reason she’ll remember my face
Now she is imprisoned in a land not for the weakened heart
A land filled with miles of fire and the lamb dine on the priest
A land filled with miles of fire and the lamb dine on the priest

You can’t save her

62 reasons to remember my face

This is my idea of beauty laid to rest beneath a blanket of leaves
Waiting for an angel to come save her from this burning paradise
Burning paradise
From this burning paradise

An indelicate display of lacerations across her body
This is my idea of beauty
This is my idea of beauty

You can’t save her


SOTD 4.28.11 “Walking with Strangers” – The Birthday Massacre

Band: The Birthday Massacre
From: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Formed: 1999

From the 2007 Album Walking with Strangers

“Walking with Strangers”
Look around for a means
To dissuade her attention
Can’t remember the places
And names that she mentions

My words are falling apart in spite of me
I’m stepping out of the light
So she can’t see
Don’t think I’ll miss her
But I want to take her picture
When I found a place
Where she can’t find me

And she’s falling asleep
As she’s walking with strangers
Talking cheap
As the flies on the wall entertain her

Her world is falling apart in front of me
She’s stepping into the light
But she can’t see
It’s hard to miss her
When she’s posing for a picture
But I found a place
Where she can’t find me

My words are falling apart in spite of me
I’m stepping out of the light
So she can’t see
Don’t think I’ll miss her
But I want to take her picture
When I found a place
Where she can’t find me


SOTD 4.27.11 “Kiss Me Slowly” – Parachute

Band: Parachute
From: Charlottesville, Virginia
Formed: 2008

From the 2011 Album The Way It Was

“Kiss Me Slowly”
Stay with me, baby say with me.
Tonight, only me alone.
Walk with me.
Come and walk with me.
To the edge of all we’ve ever known.
I can see you there with the city lights.
Forteenth flown pale blue eyes.
I can bring you near.
Two shadows standing by the bedroom
door you know I could not want you more then
I did right there. As our heads leaned in.
I’m not sure what this going to be.
But with my eyes closed all I see
is the sky line through the window.
The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in.
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes baby
Don’t run just kiss me slowly.

Stay with me, baby say with me.
Tonight, only me alone.
She shows everything she used
to know. Picture frame
and country roads.
When days were long.
The world was small.
She stood by has it fell apart.
Seperate rooms and broken hearts.
But I wont be the one to let you go.
Ohhhh
I’m not sure what this going to be.
But with my eyes closed all I see
is the sky line through the window.

The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in.
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes baby
Don’t run just kiss me slowly.

Don’t run away
And it’s hard to love again.
When only you’re spendin’
When the only love you knew
Just walked away.

It gets something that’s just one.
Darling you don’t have to run.
You don’t have to go.

Just Stay with me, baby say with me.
I’m not sure what this going to be.
But with my eyes closed all I see
is the sky line through the window.
The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in.
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes baby
Don’t run just kiss me slowly.

I’m not sure what this going to be.
But in this moment all I know
is the sky line through the window.
The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in.
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes baby
Don’t run just kiss me slowly.


SOTD 4.26.11 “Existence” – Like Moths to Flames

Band: Like Moths to Flames
From: Columbus, Ohio
Formed: 2010

From the 2010 Album Sweet Talker

“Existence”
It will never exist,
No matter how many times that you
Play this out,
When will it fucking set in?
Your memories and everything about me,
Are slowly fading

Remember me as the one that got away,
And I’ll remember you and everything,
That you will never change

This world is mine,
There’s nothing for you,
So don’t think that I,
Will find respect for you,
I was the one,
That you could turn to,
But this world is mine,
And there is nothing from you

You’ll sort this out,
When you find it falling apart,
And after everything even my family,
Expected nothing from you

Expecting something from me,
Are these your memories?

Remember me as the one that got away,
And I’ll remember you and everything,
That you could never be

Even my family

You took everything from me,
My life and my self esteem,
And now I’m taking you with me,
I’m taking this,
I am bringing you to the
Bottom of this

This world is mine,
And I am everything that you could ever love,
This world is mine

And I am everything

You took everything from me

My life and my fucking self esteem,
You took everything from me,
My life and my family

I will bury you and
Everything that you believe in.

“Impaler”
I’m going to cut you open like a fucking pig
Peel away the flesh and drain out your veins
This time you will not forget the images of those you have denied

Fuck you
Get the fuck out
My face will be the last thing you see
Fuck you
Get the fuck out
My face will be the last thing you see

You better mark my words
I come with no regards for anyone, this time you bow to me my lord
I come with no regards for anyone

We are out for blood

The wolves are set free tonight, can’t escape the attack
You better mark my words
I come with no regards for anyone

Deborah Myers:
“Halloween is coming, you have to get ready.
We are counting on you to bring us home this year.”
Michael Myers:
“I won’t let you down.”
Deborah Myers:
“I know you won’t baby.”

A white horse ride on, a bloody sky
Murder on my face and death in my eyes
Tomb inside my head
The hell I’m forced to live
I gave you all pain that, I had to give
Now I’m coming home

Chorus:
Sister why do I – do I want to kill you?
I fall to my knees, please, I love you
Mother why do I – do I want to kill you?
I am your only son, the one – I love you

I dream pitch black
Sleep of misery
A ghost across the mist
She come to set me free
An angel in my world now she has to bleed
A river of blood come back to me
Now we’re coming home

Chorus:
Sister why do I – do I want to kill you?
I fall to my knees, please, I love you
Mother why do I – do I want to kill you?
I am your only son, the one – I love you

I am your only son, the one, Michael
Help me mama please, please, Michael
I only want to stay, a day, Michael
See me as I fall, your all, Michael…

(Talking)
Michael Myers:
“I love you mama.”
Deborah Myers:
“I love you too Michael.”


SOTD 4.18.11 “Smokahontas” – Attack Attack!

Band:
From: Westerville, Ohio
Formed: 2005

From the 2010 Album Attack Attack!

“Smokahontas”
I’m alone in a crowded room
Conversations that I’ll never remember
Trapped in a reality
That shouldn’t be, that shouldn’t be!

Show me the way
Allow me to see cause my heart is broken
Be my escape
Allow me to hear with a word unspoken
Oh I am seperated from the one I was made to love

I’m pathetic and lost
They are so seperating
I am the one who had control
You are upon me

This darkness closing in
It’s just beginning
This darkness closing in
It’s just beginning

Show me the way
Allow me see cause my heart is broken
Be my escape
Allow me to hear with a word unspoken
Oh let me feel this love again
Let me feel this love again
Oh I am seperated from the one I was made to love

What is this life void of love?
It’s not a life at all!
What is this life void of love?
Can you feel your heart as it hits the ground?
Can you feel your heart as it hits the ground?

This darkness closing is just beginning
This darkness closing is never going to end!

How do you expect me to trust you
when everything you say is a lie
I’m sticking up for my friends I can count on
This is loyalty, this is a family!
This is a family!
This is my family!

SOTD 4.17.11 “Joel (The Watchman)” – For Today

Band: For Today
From: Sioux City, Iowa
Formed: 2005

From the 2009 Album Portraits

Let the trumpet sound for the coming King
The almighty approaches! Let the whole world see
Wake up!
This is really happening – the locusts devouring everything
The great and dreadful day of the Lord has fallen on the land
May you bear the mark of righteousness
We will not be forsaken
May your conviction stand to profess: we will not be forgotten

America
You will be judged, but His people will be restored
Fall to your knees, for there is life at the throne of God
You will be judged
Seek your mercy now, while it may still be found

Arise, take up your sword and choose your side
Tonight, prepare for battle
For the dream of God will come from the lips of children
And His Spirit will pour out onto all flesh

You will see the sun black out, and the moon turned to blood
You will see the sun black out, and the moon turned to blood
Then you will know there is one God and the LORD is His name…

You will be judged, but His people will be restored
Fall to your knees, for there is life at the throne of God
You will be judged, but His people will be restored
Fall to your knees, for there is life at the throne of God
You will be judged, but His people will be restored
