Les paroles

1. BITE YOUR LIP AND FAKE IT

Take the broken heart and stitch it up with some tears
Blush it up, dress it up and put it on ice, it keeps us cold
Frozen your lips turn lullabies numb
You're laughing melodies in time with heartbreak and rhyme

Don't go blowing me a kiss,
'Cause you'll see it break down in all its elegance,
Like a model wearing the wrong make-up for her own fashion parade
Biting your lip and I know,
You are faking it, you are hating it

Writing another lipstick letter, painting our script. you're the artist.
Red for the love, white for the lies, black the clichés, I'll see it in your eyes
Brush in some red, sketch in some blue, picture perfect, me and you
Don't forget the title, "Inventing Tragedy in Black and White"

Don't go blowing me a kiss,
Cos' you'll see it break down in all its elegance,
Like a model wearing the wrong make-up for her own fashion parade
Biting your lip, I know your faking it,
Letting it bleed, I know you're hating it

Painting my tragedy, singing my tragedy
But would you blow me a kiss?
At the bottom of your letters
All of my love
All of my hate
All of my love

There's no melody that fits with drop-dead gorgeous
Your name doesn't fit with the chorus or a line from her song,
But she's singing your tragedy, and her lipstick stains, me and you

Now take a look at me
Feel the ... I'm drowning in
You know I'm faking it for the sake of ruining your world

Well you were something mixed in desire
I can taste the fake in your breath, but i want more

[2X] Would you blow me, would you blow me a kiss?

I know your looking at me
Your look will drown in the ...


2. BITTER REVENGE, SWEET TRAGEDY

One chance,
One shot
One bullet in the back of my head
And it came from the bottom of your heart
You couldn't find the words to tell me
So you went and found some bullets and shot me
What better than the kiss of a 9mm
To promote the heartbreak?

Goodbye to the paramour notes
We used to be such a finely scripted romance
But now you're all alone in watching me drown in our
Last tragedy that you so proudly painted

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

Oh God, well now it's ended
But the last laugh belongs to me; listen up
This is my bullet of envy
This mess, the cracks in your heart
That's what you've created
This the heartache that only you've invented

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

You're pulling the trigger, pacing the bullet against my heart
Screaming the point 4 so I can have a head start to exit
But I'll break back through with my bullet of envy
My bitter revenge before your sweet tragedy

Oh God, pull the trigger
Oh God, the pull of a trigger
Say something more
To preach the sudden silence
My last words before your
Gunshot


3. GRAMOPHONE ELEGANCE

Paint your lips blue
Murder artistry
Heartbreak and romance
The cold is what you need for events such as this
It's better being numb if you're cracking at the heart
Pick up the rhythm, the timing that you'll need
Tonight's final serenade, it's time to take your leave

Dance the routine
And your romance is warm inside
Your heartbeat's racing
Heartbreak is cold when you
Don't dance, dream, sing our song

Come get some
Everything stops
Everything starts
Give me your hand
One on one
Two on two
Three on three
Dance step four
The cold is what you need for events such as this
It's better being numb if you're breaking at the heart
Pick up the rhythm, the timing that you'll need
Tonight's final serenade, it's time to take your leave

Dance the routine
And your romance is warm inside
Your heartbeat's racing
Heartbreak is cold when you
Don't dance dream sing our song

Poetic whispers of romance
Fill the dancing midnight air
Dance
Dance
Blood stained glass, shattered hopes
And dancing dreams in your head
I can't seem to find my steps
In this murder


4. IN LOVING MEMORY OF YOU, DESPITE YOU

(No lyrics available)


5. MY LAST WORDS

Oh how could I hurt you? ---
Oh please stay the night, no more waking up alone
We're going to sweep the plan ---

You're swimming far too close to the edge, you're gonna
fall into the air
One last chance to say goodbye, one last moment to
show you love me
Oh please let me hold your hand, let me try and take
it all the way
Let me be your hero, ---

One last kiss goodbye, (it's happening again)
---, (I see the shock in your eyes)
One last kiss goodbye, (This is goodbye forever)
--- (A special place just for you)

Waking up in a ghost wake, I stop the tears
And the pressure it sends you back to sleep
I can't believe you, ---
The sickness, leading you away.

You're swimming far too close to the edge, you're gonna
fall into the air
One last chance to say goodbye, one last moment to show
you love me
Oh please let me hold your hand, let me try and take it
all the way
Let me be your hero, ---

One last kiss goodbye, (What's happening again?)
---, (I see the shock in your eyes)
One last kiss goodbye, (This is goodbye forever)
--- (A special place just for you)

You think you could tell me what I needed, or how I feel?
You're more then just a ghost to me now
I can't even see or feel or watcn you anymore
I read you "my last words, before its all over"
As you woke up These are "my last words"


6. THE IRONY OF YOUR PERFECTION

One chance,
One shot
One bullet in the back of my head
And it came from the bottom of your heart
You couldn't find the words to tell me
So you went and found some bullets and shot me
What better than the kiss of a 9mm
To promote the heartbreak?

Goodbye to the paramour notes
We used to be such a finely scripted romance
But now you're all alone in watching me drown in our
Last tragedy that you so proudly painted

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

Oh God, well now it's ended
But the last laugh belongs to me; listen up
This is my bullet of envy
This mess, the cracks in your heart
That's what you've created
This the heartache that only you've invented

Oh God, how the bullet meets my lung
Just like the love it takes my breath away

You're pulling the trigger, pacing the bullet against my heart
Screaming the point 4 so I can have a head start to exit
But I'll break back through with my bullet of envy
My bitter revenge before your sweet tragedy

Oh God, pull the trigger
Oh God, the pull of a trigger
Say something more
To preach the sudden silence
My last words before your
Gunshot


7. WINGS FOR THE SAKE OF FALLING

Kiss goodbye, to the poetic letters, the symptoms
Of being able to breathe without a care
Cushion the screaming, it's merely conversation in regards to
Speaking for the sake of concern

Take the flight of a butterfly, drop dead
Hear the whisper of the bullet's pace
Have you ever felt; heartbreak, bullet, kiss your heart?
Scream goodbye
You're dropping dead
And it's all over

Say hello, to the clock counting down the seconds
The bullets pace, your beating heart point A, point B!
Let's see how quick you are,
Whether you'll risk it all on the line just to gain some ground
To show you can soak up the shots fired

Take the flight of a butterfly, drop dead
Hear the whisper of the bullet's pace
Have you ever felt; heartbreak, bullet, kiss your heart?

Butterfly, you gotta race the bullet's pace
Butterfly, you gotta race the bullet's whisper
Butterfly, don't fall, gotta keep up the chase
Just scream goodbye
Bleed, butterfly whisper gotta crack break drop dead
Bleed, butterfly whisper gotta fracture
Bleed, butterfly whisper gotta crack break drop dead


8. WRITING HER BALLAD

Let's get away cure your fast pain.
What a perfect way to ruin this day.
What a killing, with a lot of blood put away.
Without back in my bone.
The sarcastic, self will save it
Where'd it go, where'd it to go, where'd it go, where'd it go! ? Okay!
The voice we need to talk, to talk, where'd it go, where'd it go!
Let the break house of us burn.
Let me take a cam and fly...
Let it carry us from the worst! To say goodbye...

Writing hurts, the writing hurts as she kills herself,
Conscience stained with the blood of me.
Your voice finally begins to mourn because we're breaking,
With a fracture I'll sit and wait.
Your lips, we kiss, to be part of something.
You mad? It's okay, it's well known heart break.
This voice, better tell you you're dreaming!

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up!
Okay! The voice we need to talk, to talk, wake up, wake up!
Let the break house of us burn!,
Let make this cam and always try, and I cannot find the words...
To say... Goodbye!

OKAY!

Fight, fight, fight!
Fight, fight, fight!
Fight, fight, fight!
Fight, fight, fight!

Rah!

It's all this complication, okay you're screaming uh-uh-uh okay!
And all this complication, okay you're bleeding uh uh uh uh uh
The only complication, okay you're screaming uh uh uh uh uh
And all this complication, okay you're bleeding uh uh uh... uh...

It's 2 am...
You're fast asleep... (NOOOO! )
I'm watching you weep, and dream away your inspiration...
Oh no... you're drifting away...
I'm all alone, but I'm still writing... (WRITING TO YOU! ) to you...
And I will travel from all the way from hell
Cause' I love you...
