Lyrics

1. THIS IS USUALLY THE PAST WHERE PEOPLE SCREAM

You'll beat me?
Bring it on! Bring it on!
You're gonna save the day?
Bring it on! Bring it on!
You ready?
Bring it on!
I'll show you another thing or two!

You may think your clever but you're not
You better get the coffins out!
Trust me kid that's where you're sleeping tonight!

There's no guarantee we'll get out alive
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!
Baby, it's time to lock and load!
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!

Welcome to the show,
It's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
This tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
It's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!

You may think you've won but I promise you it's not over!
You may think you've won but I promise you it's not over!

This could be our one last chance to finally rise up
So here we stand and here we will fight
None of us shall run (None of us shall run)
From anyone
Storms are gathering

There's no guarantee we'll get out of alive
Stop your whining! Let's get busy!
We have to rise above and fight
We'll be heroes!

Welcome to the show,
It's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
This tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
It's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!

This is the part where you are supposed to scream! (x4)

When you scream we'll be heroes

Welcome to the show,
It's a story that you've heard a thousand times
So take a seat and get lost with me,
This tale will never stop being told
Welcome to the show,
It's a chance to save the world or lose the girl
Let's save the world!
Heroes will always save the day!
Let's save the world!
Heroes will save the day!
Let's save the world!
Heroes will always save the day!


2. GOODBYE, GOODNIGHT, FOR GOOF

Jealousy rears its ugly head
I won't forget the things you said before
Goodbye, goodnight, for good...
Remember my face when you feel the pain

Help me to sleep...
Help me to sleep...

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed (with my eyes closed)
For the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes...
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep...
Sleep tight, goodnight...
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye

Helps me to sleep without your memory
And my shattered dreams collect dust
On what used to be a lie
It haunts me no more and now you're gone,
You've left me alone
I wasn't wrong to feel this way inside so goodbye,
Goodnight, for good

Now I'll fight with my eyes closed (with my eyes closed)
For the things I've let go
Sweet breath escapes...
Choke on the lies that were your last goodbye
Hear my voice as you sleep...
Sleep tight, goodnight...
Choke on the lies that were your last...

I find pleasure in the taste of your decay
I anxiously watch you fade away

I can't explain what's happening inside of me
I refuse to fight you anymore
All I know is I have to make sure...
Make sure you never wake up again

Soft flesh gives way to trembling hand...

Beautiful eyes are sewn shut
Searing thread suffocates the light (the light)

Beautiful eyes are sewn shut
Searing thread suffocates the light (light)


3. SEDUCTION

Sunlight warms my face only in dreams of you
I know you'll wait for me...it's been too long
Beautiful eyes. beautiful lies to dull the pain
Beautiful eyes, beautiful lies...you're killing me
I would wait for years just to feel you again
I will die without you...would you my love?
Beautiful eyes, beautiful lies pour from your mouth as
You scream his name...you're killing me

Cries escape your sweet voice as I kiss you one last time
...One last time...
Do you remember me and our beautiful affair?
Look in my eyes and honestly tell me our love is gone!
Why have you turned your back on me?
One day you'll wake up and realize your mistake

Ice runs through my veins as I stand face to face with
The one who stole it all
Compassion is not an option

Cries escape your sweet voice as I kiss you one last time
...One last time...
Do you remember me and our beautiful affair?
Look in my eyes and honestly tell me our love is gone!
Why have you turned your back on me?
One day you'll wake up
Realize your mistake!

In love we're one, inseparable,
Pathetic lust, thus we crumble
I saw your eyes, I wiped your tears, I waited for you...

Who do you see with eyes shut tight?
Regret will be your bride (x3)
Goodbye...

Do you remember me and our beautiful affair?
Look in my eyes and honestly tell me our love is gone!
Why have you turned your back on me?
One day you'll wake up and realize...
Cries escape your sweet voice as I paint my own goodbye


4. A MOST PROFOUND QUIET

We should go ahead and kill her right now
But her eyes are so lovely
I can't wait! Just imagine how she will suffer!
Would someone please tell me I'm not alright
How could you fall for my charming charade?

Days fade away but guilt still burns inside of me
I feel as if I am responsible
Why can't I realize just how the pieces seem to fit?
I feel as if I am responsible

Does she know before I met her
I have only dreamt of so much blood?
So why is she tempting me?
Can you see the visions of pain?
How could I? Is that possible?
You must give her to me!
I'm tired of washing my hands clean of what I've done
'Tis to a murderer's den you have come

Days fade away but guilt still burns inside of me
I feel as if I am responsible
Why can't I realize just how the pieces seem to fit?
I feel as if I am responsible

Something in this empty room is telling me that
I should run!
Its time we throw away the mask
What have we done?
We got too attached!
We can't let her escape!
We let her escape!
This is the last time we ever have to speak again!
She is no longer yours!
We can't let her escape!
She's all mine!

Days fade away but guilt still burns inside of me
I feel as if I am responsible
Why can't I realize just how the pieces seem to fit?
I feel as if I am responsible

Does she know before I met her
I had only dreamt of so much blood?
So why is she tempting me?


5. RED AND DYING EVENING

You've taken the last...of me

The guise of your innocence shall not protect you
From the wake of my wrath
You've taken the last of me, blame the end on yourself
You deserve each tear that falls
Scratch out your eyes and the blood will drown you in red
And I will leave you for dead
A lovely evening draped in regret

The shadow of justice now engulfs
You as cold hands reap the pain they've sewn
You've taken the last of me, blame the end on yourself
You deserve each tear that falls
Scratch out your eyes and the blood will drown you in red
And I will leave you for dead
A lovely evening draped in regret...forever gone...

The taste of your death replaced the smell of your breath
A lovely evening draped in regret
Suffocate your will to...live with my pain
You were so easily seduced by greed
You could never feel my calloused hands
Closing around your throat

Wake into the nightmare that has become our love, may
Your screams never cease
You've taken the last of me

(Not all knights in shining armor
Can make your dreams come true)


6. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME, PRINCE CHARMING

Shadows dance around me as I race alone
I will never rest until she's in my arms
So close and yet so far away...
A simple kiss to bring her back, to make this story end

Not all knights in shining armor
Can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
Come and claim your queen!

The wild beasts are ravenous, they will soon devour you
Dark howls echo bitter cries but they fall upon deaf ears

Not all knights in shining armor
Can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
Come and claim your queen!

You're pathetic! What good do you do?!?
She had faith in me, I was her only escape
A most deep and subtle poison welcomes
Her unblinking eyes to eternal sleep
If I had shown, she would be mine
Who is the fairest of all? Tell me again!
Tell me again! You know its me!
A simple kiss to bring her back, to make this story end

Not all knights in shining armor
Can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
We'll make all your dreams come true,
Come and claim your queen!


7. THE UNINVITED THIRTEENTH

You should have known better than to insult me
That won't happen again...
Sleep, I'll pretend that you died
And as you rest may your youth be stripped away from you
Sleep my precious, the darling Rosamond
May nightmares lay with you... revenge is mine!

There must be something everyone has missed
The end is drawing near, it's everything I feared
I'm starting to wonder will this haunt me?
In spite of doubt, I have to break the spell

A lovely day to be tortured by dreams of you

Now as she wakes,
I'll finally look in her eyes...
My brilliant prize, please know
You'll never again be alone
For I'm with you

Her sweet lips, oh so fair,
To awake is now everything I crave
Time's catching up with me
I've come this far, there's no turning back
My sword is drawn, the only choice I have is to fight
Nothing can stop me now but myself

I will break the spell
Save me! Help me! Someone!
Anyone, please, can you hear me?
My eyes!
Will I ever see light of day again? Never...

Now as she wakes,
I'll finally look in her eyes
My brilliant prize, please know
You'll never again be alone
For I'm with you

You'll never get away!
You'll never get away!
You'll wish you both had died!
He will not break the spell!

A lovely day to be... (My princess...)
...Tortured by dreams of you
(...Into the thorns I shall dive)

Now as she wakes
I'll finally look in her eyes...
My brilliant prize, please know
You'll never again be alone
For I'm with you

My sweet princess finally awake!


8. SWEETHEART, YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN

Mark my words this night is far from its end
Please spare me your threats and your useless remarks
Go ahead, I dare you!
Take one step closer to this gap baby!
I'll show you what I mean!
I can't let fear get the best of me right now
Keep smiling and soon you will pay!

Close your eyes and let your mind escape
Into a world of dreams
I won't wake you
Close your eyes and keep them shut
The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

Who's laughing now?
Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
Oh, how she screams!
If you think you'll win my forgiveness
Awww, sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken!
You shouldn't have brought us! You shouldn't have hurt us!
You have not one clue what you've started but trust me
You'll know when I'm finished!
(Its time, baby!)

Close your eyes and let your mind escape
Into a world of dreams
I won't wake you
Close your eyes and keep them shut
The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

You'd better run faster than that
I know you're feeling scared but so am I
Don't you dare turn around...Hold on as tight as you can!
I know that you're afraid but so am I
There's no time for tears...
Run till you can't feel your legs!

Close your eyes...
Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead!"
Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale, I guess
For us it's true

Look who's laughing now!
Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
If you think you'll win my forgiveness
Awww. sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken!
(It's time, baby!)


9. AND THEY CALL THIS TRAGEDY

You make me sick...
I'll tear out those diamond eyes I can't bear to see
Crimson spills on paper skin
They call this tragedy...

Remembering the nights when you'd whisper to me soft,
"Forever more my heart is yours"
Realize those words have died
As the life fades from your eyes all that I can say is
It may not be too late

If I can not be loved then none shall be
(Your face disgusts me, smile bear your lies)
Think of this as I softly kiss your blood glazed lips once more
(This broken trust will become your demise)
On this night this thing you call love dies

As the life fades from your eyes all that I can say is
It may be too late
Try again, make it perfect, make me worth it..or else
Die for all I care

I have put this off so long but its never too late
White knuckles clench as red eyes burn
Now I grit my teeth and finish what I know must be
Done to kill the memory of you
And you said this would be forever...

After today silence will haunt you
There will be no more forgiveness for what you've done
After today silence will haunt you
There will be no more forgiveness for what you've done
And you said this would be forever...


10. ALL NIGHT DANCE PARTIES IN THE UNDERGROUND PALACE

Beautiful, you know you leave me breathless
When you fall into my eyes
My heart belongs to you my angel
There is just no reason for you to let life bring you down
Please come with me and let me show you

I know that at times it may be hard to let go of yourself
Babygirl, tonight leave your cares behind because
It's time to celebrate!
All night long I'll sing and dance with you,
My sweet princess, only if you trust in this
Take my hand and follow me,
I will sweep you off of your feet
All night long I will sing and dance with you

Every time I look at you I can't believe how magical you are
The stars belong to you my angel
Run away with me into a world where time seems to not exist
The smile on my face will show you

I know that at times it may be hard to let go of yourself
Babygirl, tonight leave your cares behind because
It's time to celebrate!
All night long I will sing and dance with you,
My sweet princess, only if you trust in this
Take my hand and follow me,
I will sweep you off of your feet
This night will only end when we stop dancing

My sweet princess I will sing and dance
With you all night long
The stars, they belong to you my angel

All night long I'll sing and dance with you.
My sweet princess, only if you trust in this
Take my hand and follow me, I will sweep you off your feet
This night will only end when we stop...


11. ENDINGS WITHOUR STORIES

This time I die

Our love ruined by your malignance
Broken shards of feelings are now just tainted memories left
Beautiful dreams that I cherished now are so disgusting as I strangle the light from you

I watched the smile fading from your face
You bled till there was nothing in your veins
Blood stains my hands so I won't forget you
Its all over now so dry your eyes
There is no forgiveness, be afraid to die
Blood stains my hands so I won't forget you

Tears fall as your screams of anguish rage
Throughout the heavens
Amidst the penance you must pay
Caress this bullet as eyes close
To the painful memories you left
Consume the rest of me
My vision of you has now turned to dust,
Your porcelain smile gone

I watched the smile fading from your face
You bled till there was nothing in your veins
Blood stains my hands so I won't forget you
Its all over now so dry your eyes... there is no Forgiveness, be afraid to die
Blood stains my hands so I won't forget you

You let me go
You let me go too soon
I love you are meaningless words that slip away as
I slit your throat
And I will slit your throat


12. AS YOU WISH

Life is meaningless without you
Love can be such a beautiful torture
My heart breaks as I long for you
Love can be such lovely torture

I will climb the hills, draw my sword and take down
Anyone who tries to stand in front of me
Please know I'll never run away without you in my arms
One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of Romeo or Juliet
Stories told of our love will never die

I've slain the most unholy things,
Endured such terrific pain
Finally I'll feel your caress again
I've braved the cold and lonely seas,
I have prevailed against the odds
Then again...

I will climb the hills, draw my sword and take down
Anyone who tries to stand in front of me
Please know I'll never run away without you in my arms
One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of Romeo or Juliet
Stories told of our love will never die

Will you forgive what
I've done to give you four white horses?

One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of Romeo or Juliet
Stories told of our love will never die


13. OBESSION IS SUCH AN UGLY WORD

I toss and turn and lie awake...
It torments me, I must know why
It just seems too easy...what is beyond that door?
As I take a step back I wonder could
I go on and turn the key?

Look away! Turn away!
I should remember nothing is what it seems
For once in my life I will resist...temptation has
Come alive again!
When all is said and done I may not be able to move on
If I don't know what lies beyond
Desire is now the one in control
Am I strong enough to not ever know just what I'd find?
Should I press on?

I can almost hear anguished cries as they suffer
Welcome to the bodies!
I should run...
I should run but I just can't seem to move

Look away! Turn away!
I should remember nothing is what it seems
For once in my life I will resist...temptation has
Come alive again!
When all is said and done I may not be able to move on
If I don't know what lies beyond
Desire is now the one in control
Am I strong enough to not ever know just what I'd find?
What sinful trance awaits me as the key turns?

Now it is done...the key has been turned
All that is left is my embrace
Her trembling is driving me wild!
Her shrieks are so intoxicating!
Eyes filled with tears will strain to see
Welcome home! I am your prison!
