Lyrics
1. IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT

Have you ever actually seen yourself without a mirror?

To slip through the cracks of the universe,
My love so true, is my gift to you

Trapped in a world that was dreamt by a madman, hallelujah! hallelujah!
Little did he know his dreams would come true
I’m on to you! I’m on to you!

Think, if only he could see the gorgeous rage
Then maybe he would never have bled ink on page
An artist, he was so consumed by a world he saw in his mind
a world sadistic with lies and panicking cries

Our world is so callous and cold, empty and lost
I’ll bleed for you, to change it all, I’ll die for you to save us all
This could be our only chance
This could be our only hope

Lost in your passion, endless attraction, forever yours
You make me feel like I’m invincible
Love sings such a sweet ending
Ballad of lust, anticipate the irresistible

Changing the end means going back to where it all began
If we survive we take control and start again
You’ve lost your mind, tear the fabric of time itself?!
Stay close to me, I will rewrite history for you

Our world is so callous and cold, empty and lost
I’ll bleed for you, to change it all, I’ll die for you to save us all
This could be our only chance
This could be our only hope

Lost in your passion, endless attraction, forever yours
You make me feel like I’m invincible
Love sings such a sweet ending
Ballad of lust, anticipate the irresistible

As your hand drifts from mine
Two hearts still intertwined
Across both space and time
Remember I am yours
I am yours
Remember I am yours

Time seizes my hand
Only a fool is never afraid

Lost in your passion, endless attraction, forever yours
You make me feel like I’m invincible
Love sings such a sweet ending
Ballad of lust, anticipate the irresistible
Forever yours, irresistible
Forever yours, you make me feel like I’m invincible

Annabel please don’t go
I’ll be fine, we’ll be fine


2. THE ACOLYTE

Dead and lost with tired faces,
Antiquated passion laid to rest
Wake up!
No smiles for the memories we have,
Rotting with the corpses of our past
Please wake up!
Here we stand left in the dark! Kick back!
Here we are screaming for help! Strike back!
Do you think that we have a fighting chance?
Shall we dance on the wings of hope
And together fly through the sky?
We are not living for this! I will take back what is ours!

Stand up coward!
Dear God, scream it like you mean it!
No time to rest for sleep beckons the weak

Darling, please understand and listen, this is insane
This can’t be it, I don’t think I am ready for goodbyes
If you leave, if we try to finish what we began
I don’t think I can bring you back
So kiss me before you go and whisper three sweet words

There must be something that I missed, pieces drift away
I wish I could think outside of the box now, solve the riddle
no stone will be left unturned
with God as my witness I will find a way
to slow, to beat the wheels of time
I wake up beside you and we smile, oh foolishness

Stand up coward!
Dear God, scream it like you mean it!
No time to rest for sleep beckons the weak

Darling, please understand and listen, this is insane
This can’t be it, I don’t think I am ready for goodbyes
If you leave, if we try to finish what we began
I don’t think I can bring you back
So kiss me before you go and whisper three sweet words

Shatter the hourglass
Dissect the universe, tear through reality, rearrange the stars above

Open your eyes and gaze the skies above a world that we have made
Blood, sweat, and tears, ions and years
We’re building a utopia

Yet I still remain in this cursed place
So far from my dreams
This must be hell! I will escape!
Burn it to the ground
Tear it brick from brick
Till there’s nothing left but a hole in the sky

Darling, please understand and listen, this is insane
This can’t be it, I don’t think I am ready for goodbyes
If you leave, if we try to finish what we began
I don’t think I can bring you back
So kiss me before you go and whisper three sweet words

Shatter the hourglass
Dissect the universe, tear through reality, rearrange the stars above


3. COMEDY OF ERRORS

I’ve been here before am I losing my mind?
Look at me, tell me I’m crazy
We’re in danger
Follow me and you’ll see things are not what they seem
Take my hand or don’t you trust me?
We are in danger and I’m the one to blame

At the edge of man’s reason there exist designs to escape reality
The tesseract calls to me
Cosmic strings shall be mine to pull
Failure met by failure
Try again! Try again!
Still she calls to me...

Can I hold you closer and drown in your dreams?
I promise fantasies can be more than words that we have buried alive
The nightmare is real still I pray and beg for more
I’m never closing my eyes
Forever one with the night

Hush sweet baby don’t say a word
I’m ignoring destiny for reasons I can’t tell you
We try to fool our minds
How long do we wait for salvation?
Is it a sin to wonder?
Get off your knees!

Failure met by failure
Try again! Try again!
She’s insane!
Can I hold you closer and drown in your dreams?
I promise fantasies can be more than words that we have buried alive
The nightmare is real still I pray and beg for more
I’m never closing my eyes
Forever one with the night

Can you hear me? Can you see me?
Can you hear me? Can you see me?
Can you hear me? Someone’s talking
Can you see me? Someone’s watching

Delusions of grandeur, where the hell am I? Save me from myself!
‘cause I can no longer play this morbid game
Just when I thought it was over, here we go!
Galaxies welcome me inside!

I’m insane!
Oh the horror! Oh the panic!
Paranoid and deranged! I am a God!
Psychotic and ashamed! Why! Why!

Can you hear me? Can you see me?
Can I hold you closer and drown in your dreams?
I promise fantasies can be more than words that we have buried alive
The nightmare is real still I pray and beg for more
I’m never closing my eyes
Forever one with the night
I’m never closing my eyes
Forever one with the night

It was a dark and stormy night...
I’ve traveled near and far, raced with all the stars
now alone I’ll be, subtle tragedy
If I had one more chance to just explore
I would take your hand and do it all again


4. THE GODDESS

My breath is slowly catching up to my mind after the crash
Inhale, exhale
Now open your eyes, see the wonder
I’m telling you its unbelievable

Did I lose myself? Am I still alive?
Something isn’t right
Am I just asleep or is this really happening to me?
Tell myself I’m fine
Get up on your feet, get up on your feet
Answer me now!

I never wanna leave because you feel like ecstasy
A seduction becoming a part of me
Damn you! Temptation, you’ve got a hold on me
Stand up, walk away, don’t fall into the trap

Illusion is best when you don’t try to fight back
Give in to the pleasure, skin on skin
I will take you places you’ve not been
Elation is nothing but a myth unless you give in

Did I lose myself? Am I still alive?
Something isn’t right
Am I just asleep or is this really happening to me?
Tell myself I’m fine
Get up on your feet, get up on your feet
Answer me now!

I never wanna leave because you feel like ecstasy
A seduction becoming a part of me
Damn you! Temptation, you’ve got a hold on me
Stand up, walk away, don’t fall into the trap

We choose the foolish of the world to astonish the wise
The weak to embarrass the strong
Nothing is impossible, we must hope for everything
You don’t have to understand things for them to be
You just have to believe in the unbelievable...

My shadow hides in a place where the sun screams
Come back, my tears
Please just tell me what you are!
Why can’t I feel?

I can’t stay here I will never be anything but a fraud too scared to lose it all!
I won’t let you go

I don’t wanna leave because you are ecstasy
I never wanna leave because you feel like ecstasy
A seduction becoming a part of me
Damn you! Temptation, you’ve got a hold on me
Stand up, walk away, don’t fall into the trap

I don’t wanna leave because you are ecstasy


5. OH, HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN

I’m having trouble breathing
And if I don’t think fast I’m likely to find myself here for good
Panic sets in as I start to question
Why I see you standing there beyond the glass...

Who said that we never would touch the speed of light?
So far behind me, understanding
Stars become rivers flowing backwards, oh yea!
When did my heartbeat start to echo?
Why are my thoughts now fading, drifting, yea!
Twisting, yea! tearing, yea! bleeding, yea!

Excuse me, are you a maniac?
I am and I’m okay with that

My moon, my stars,
One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything
I’m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything

An endless maze, a mobiüs labyrinth
Exodus, redemption, where have you gone!
And yet your gaze will not cease to burn into me!
So far removed, so mockingly you observe
Pariah, hypocrite! I will be free!
And yet you will remain

Excuse me, are you a maniac?
I am and I’m okay with that

My moon, my stars,
One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything
I’m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything

No!
Futile screams go unheard
Incarcerated by so many walls
No!
Imprisoned and banished within a nexus of my own design

Don’t go back, don’t leave me
Hide from the world, let’s not exist
Please God kill me!

Time is mocking me and now I’m fighting gravity, yea
I’m destroying me, colliding worlds will set you free

A straight line is not the shortest distance between two points!
I know that now! But I’m afraid it might be too late!

Will we come back from this?

Hold my hand, I’m blind!
Show me how, I’m lost!
My God it’s beautiful
The portal opens, time is slowing, no turning back now, ‘Bel

My moon, my stars,
One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything
I’m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything

No!
Futile screams go unheard
Incarcerated by so many walls
No!
Imprisoned and banished within a nexus of my own design


6. THE PUPPETEER

I welcome you to paradise!
It’s what you wished for
A mountain of filth haunted by tortured shrieks of the dead!
I know you’ll love it here!

Time stops and once again I’m stranded nowhere
And yet again I’m so confused
Why stop?
It honestly can’t get much worse and I’m better off here than on my own

Step right up, come one and all!
I will be your host tonight!
Welcome to the dreams of hell!
You’re in for a wild ride!

It’s strange but I feel right at home
It’s odd but I don’t want to go
Am I a fool? Am I crazy to want to stay? Do I belong?
Another time, another place? This will do just fine

Foolish mortal, what did you think?
That you’d shackle the hands of time?
And defeat the Gods themselves?
Sweet vanity you’re my favorite sin!
Swallow mountains and choke on them
Then drown yourself on Lazarus
Spread your wings and grab the sun
Sweet vanity you’re my favorite sin!

Pretty lady let’s dance!
I bet you thought that you could choose to leave?
Everybody is dead!
You’re all alone and I’m the one, the only one! Yea!

I’ll do whatever it takes
Oh, what’s another mistake

Back and forth and upside down as we laugh ourselves to sleep
We’re trying to escape
An evil place so full of wonder taking a hold of me...

Feeling the pressure, I should be over you
Slave to the pleasure, I can’t get over you
Tonight we’ll try to pretend that we’re alright, yea
Say its forever, don’t let me fade away

Everything’s gone, everything’s lost
What have I done? Can it be undone?
Where did you go? Will I find you?
This is our home, sweet home. The canvas went up in flames

Pretty lady let’s dance!
I bet you thought that you could choose to leave?
Everybody is dead!
You’re all alone and I’m the one, the only one! Yea!

I’ll do whatever it takes
Oh, what’s another mistake

Back and forth and upside down as we laugh ourselves to sleep
We’re trying to escape
An evil place so full of wonder taking a hold of me...

Feeling the pressure, I should be over you
Slave to the pleasure, I can’t get over you
Tonight we’ll try to pretend that we’re alright, yea
Say its forever, don’t let me fade away
I’m everything you want, I’m everything you need
You’re everything to me, don’t let me fade away

Foolish mortal, what did you think?
That you’d shackle the hands of time?
And defeat the Gods themselves?
Sweet vanity you’re my favorite sin!
Swallow mountains and choke on them
Then drown yourself on Lazarus
Spread your wings and grab the sun
Sweet vanity you’re my favorite sin!

Parting is such sweet sorrow
Come back to me soon my dear
I will be counting the days
Farewell my love
This is our home, sweet home
Drench yourself in the cries of the damned!
Spill their blood!
Bathe in bliss as we torture the sane!
Help me, God!


7. FATAL OPTIMIST

I miss counting the stars
And I miss the way you kiss me
I miss the way you touch me
I miss calling you mine
Baby you know who I am
And there’s nobody I’d rather dance with in the moonlight
I just want to go back

I fear the emptiness will swallow me whole
This is my confession

I am no hero and I’m not a saint
I can’t save the world
and I never asked for this
In your eyes I see the questions I don’t have the answers for
Arise suspicious minds

You told yourself I was pure, certain that I would save you
But if it crosses your mind that I was saving myself
Remind yourself that I’m dangerous!
Maybe I’m not as honest as it seems, a siren dressed in silk
Maybe I’m just selling a lie, a villain in disguise

I fear the emptiness will swallow me whole
This is my confession

I am no hero and I’m not a saint
I can’t save the world
and I never asked for this
In your eyes I see the questions
I don’t have the answers for
Arise suspicious minds

I don’t know if I’m praying, I don’t know if I’m begging
But I have to believe that someone,
Something out there can hear me
I have to know that there is a chance
I have to believe that I might escape this hell
I fear I’ve lost myself and I don’t know the way back
the way back to what I once was
Am I Fatima? Am I Rusalka? Or am I just me? Sweet, innocent Annabel.

Star crossed lovers in strife embracing on a battlefield
Giving in to the fight, changing at the speed of light
Time to move on to another night
Time to move on to another fight

I fear the emptiness will swallow me whole
This is my confession


8. THE MARTYR

Remember why you’re here

Fall for me
Lay yourself before the demon
Spread your legs, bite your lip, meet his eye
Drooling, engorged, wide eyed, shaking, you’ve got him
Don’t fall for me
Don’t relent invite him to you
Guide his hand, take his breath, consume him
Gasping, lusting, weakened, frozen, you’ve won
If you should peek beneath the veil
Don’t be surprised to find me there

I’m ashamed, a victim of the curse

I think I like the fight
Wrong feels so right, baby
I’m flirting with lunacy
Nothing can stop me and my sinful obsession

Please don’t forget who he is, my ‘Bel.
A monster who enjoys the fear
Never forget what he is, my ‘Bel
A monster who designed the fear

Listen to me, keep your focus
Your one true love waits in anguish

Lick your lips as the sweat drips down
and taste the torture as you crawl, begging for more, yea!

I’m ashamed, a victim of the curse

I think I like the fight
Wrong feels so right, baby
I’m flirting with lunacy
Nothing can stop me and my sinful obsession

Remember why you’re here

I’m ashamed, a victim of the curse

I think I like the fight
Wrong feels so right, baby
I’m flirting with lunacy
Nothing can stop me and my sinful obsession


9. PARADOX

Dearest love, I hope this finds you well
I am kidding this is probably hell
Lonely stranger with a brush in hand
Never saw me sneaking up on him
Tonight say goodbye to what you thought you knew
They’ll blame the blood spilled on you
I’m closing my eyes, one more kiss before I never wake again

Two moves ahead of you
You are a pawn
Castle now but I’m behind your king
As your queen lays bleeding on the board
Accept you have lost the game, misjudged your enemy

Unleash the myth living in your worst fears
I’m trapped! Don’t wait!

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot to write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride,
We sit and watch the world’s collide
The story is ending

Would you remember Joan of Arc
Was her flesh yet unlicked by flame?
Will you remember how the waves crash on the shores of time?
Who would’ve ever known that each choice made sense?
Who could’ve ever known?
Are we not our actions?
Our lives are poetry, make them sonnets

Unleash the myth living in your worst fears
I’m trapped! Don’t wait!

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot to write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride, we sit and watch the world’s collide
The story is ending

Why do the floorboards creak like a heartbeat
This room is driving me insane
What’s behind the bricks?
Who’s rapping at my chamber door?
Pendulum, why do you torment me?
What am I saying? Have I lost my mind?

I am her!

No longer Fatima, goddess, light
I’ve become Rusalka, demon of night!

Two moves ahead of you
You are a pawn
Castle now but I’m behind your king
As your queen lays bleeding on the board
Accept you have lost the game, misjudged your enemy

Don’t wait...

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot
To write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride,
We sit and watch the world’s collide
Page abandoned, time is ending
The story is ending, make them sonnets
We sit and watch the world’s collide

The night that I died I had become Rusalka.
I was no longer me.
I was no longer Annabel.
The beautiful evil coursed through my veins and
I saw so clearly what needed to be done.
As you lay, fast asleep,
I penned her farewell and kissed your cheek.
The knife felt so light in my hand, so heavy in my stomach
There is something about this room…


10. THROUGH THE EYES OF URIEL

On the edge of reason, beyond understanding
Silent she waits, perfect oblivion
She’s crawling to the end, perfect oblivion

I live behind mirrors within a prison without any bars
Yet I remain lost to the world
In hell I’m suspended within a prism
So many walls, so many years, so many lives
Too often I’ve watched them die

Images of yesterday feeling so far away

I can’t let go of the past, the years, the sweet romance
I am a ticking time bomb waiting in a trance
I need you more tonight than you will ever know
I swear to never forget this heartbreaking dance

The hell of being trapped is simply not a match for death
Heaven awaits
Now I know not to be afraid of the end
My love awaits, will you be there? Take me away
I’m ready, I’ll be home soon

Images of yesterday feeling so far away

I can’t let go of the past, the years, the sweet romance
I am a ticking time bomb waiting in a trance
I need you more tonight than you will ever know
I swear to never forget this heartbreaking dance

Beautiful pure silence, come on!
Embrace me sweet perfect nothing swallow my fears, come on!
If I had just one wish I’d choke prophets,
Hang angels, burn children
Oh, I’d drink oceans, eat the moon,
Flood the world, end everything

Breathe in, breathe out
We could run far away but then how would we sleep at night?

I’ve been looking for the words to say our last goodbyes
Hold on to fleeting hopes that I just might survive

Give in to the pleasure
Make it last forever
Hold on hold on to everything we are


11. CATHARSIS

This is the final act
Please take your seats,
This is the moment that you’ve been waiting for
This is gonna be a wild ride!

Your telltale heart is beating, unstable minds descend
I’m through trying to reach you, I am the emptiness
Our love will nevermore attach your soul to mine
You don’t understand, time is on my side now baby
And time is running out

Do not believe in imitations, we have to crave a masterpiece beneath the ink
We’re falling for the fiction,
There’s more than meets the eye

The end is dawning
The sun is setting on a silent mourning
Our stars aligning as universes shatter time
I’m resisting reality

I remember when, my love, you could stop time with just a smile
Save it for tomorrow, my love
I’ll regret those words forever more

I danced with our accuser, murderer from the start
Climbed out of Tartarus for one last night with you
You don't understand we are poetry now, baby
But time is running out

Do not believe in imitations, we have to crave a masterpiece beneath the ink
We’re falling for the fiction, there’s more than meets the eye

The end is dawning
The sun is setting on a silent mourning
Our stars aligning as universes shatter time
I’m resisting reality

I remember when, my love, you could stop time with just a smile
Save it for tomorrow, my love
I’ll regret those words forever more

The end is dawning
The sun is setting on a silent mourning
Our stars aligning as universes shatter time
Have you ever actually seen yourself without a mirror?

I must be dreaming, I drop the knife, turn and see you
You can’t be me
I can’t be you

Oh my God! Where am I?
Let me go! Let me go!
Save me from this nightmare!
Annabel?! I can not be lying there!

My ‘Bel, you know you’re the cause of this?!
If you had not left me then he would not have lost his mind
If you’re seeking forgiveness you have come to the wrong place

The compass spins
What's that feeling in your stomach
First a flutter now a shudder
Creeping up your spine and now you know that something's not right
Something lurking something peering inching closer inching closer
Trying not to think about it trying not to think about it
It's here!

Foregrounds burst to nothing
As symmetry explodes
The Artist screams and beauty dies, his canvas rends
While his easel burns
He's lost everything in but one cruel instant existence swept away
Did man even notice as he was erased?
