Evanescence : The Bitter Truth

歌词


1. ARTIFACT/THE TURN

Underneath golden skies
You will always be there
In the mirror, in my eyes
You will always be there...

Where do we go now
That I
Have seen
The turn
Where do we go now
Find a way to go back
To go back home
To who we are...


2. BROKEN PIECES SHINE

There is no way back this time
What is real and what is mine
Oh, survival hurts
Lose myself or lose my mind
Every time I close my eyes
Oh, survival hurts
But I keep breathing in (I'm alive)

I'm not fine
I don't know if I will be alright
But I have to try
I know you're with me
So what if we do fall apart
Give into all that we are
And let all the broken pieces shine

Shuttered inside, looking out
Everything's turned upside down
Oh, we're not the first
How can we ever be us
Wondering who we can trust
Oh survival hurts
But I'm not giving in (I'm alive)

I'm not fine
I don't know if I will be alright
But I have to try
I know you're with me
So what if we do fall apart
Give into all that we are
Let all the broken pieces come alive

I don't know if I will ever be alright
But I have to try
And I know you're with me
So what if we do fall apart
Shamelessly be who we are
And let all the broken pieces shine

Let all the broken pieces shine
Let all the broken pieces shine
Let all the broken pieces shine
Let all the broken pieces shine


3. THE GAME IS OVER

Had enough, I've really
Had enough
Had enough of denial
I'm not alright, but I'm not gonna lie
I don't know that I ever was

All alone, I've waited
All alone
Held it in as I played by your rules
I've been biting my lip, but I'm losing my grip
I'm coming down, down, down

When all the hate burns off, I'm left here with the pain
Behind our vain devices are we all the same

Change me into something I believe in
Change me so I don't have to pretend

Take a breath and try to play along but
I'm a terrible liar
I feel the world like a brick on my chest
And the party's just begun
Throw the rope, I'm wading
Through the mud
From your mouth flow a thousand truths
But you know, there's only one

When all the hate burns off, I'm left here with the pain

Change me into something I believe in
Change me so I don't have to pretend
Sweet words, they mean nothing, they're not true
'Cause the game is over

I want it all or I want nothing at all
Maybe I can

Change me into something I believe in
Change me so I don't have to pretend
Your sweet words they mean nothing, save your breath
The game is over


4. YEAH RIGHT


I'm the widow
On the tip-tippy-toppy of the highest high of low
And I'm the shadow
Of the first little flower on the brightest patch of snow

Happiness can be hard to find
I'm so slap silly happy
Everybody wants to take mine

Yeah, right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we'll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls
Yeah, yeah, right

Yeah, I'm a rock star
I'm a queen resurrected, just as messed up as before
Twist the knife hard
Just makes it easier to tell you I don't need you anymore (Oh)

Life's a game till you lose, then what?
I'm reaching a new level of not giving a fuck

Yeah, right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we'll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls

Tell me, how is the real world treating you?
Is that my fault too?
My one mistake was giving more and more and more
More and more and more

Hey, yeah
Yeah, right
Baby, that sounds nice (That sounds nice)
Everything you ever wanted and more
Someday (I can't wait for that day)
We'll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls, sell our souls

Yeah, right
That sounds nice
More than it was worth to sell our so


5. FEEDING THE DARK

Follow me under
Low as we are
Swallow your hunger
Feeding this dark
Feeding this dark

Do you remember
What made the scar?
How deep will you cut?
Seeking my heart
Seeking my heart

Well, you know that you can't hide
And you know that you can't lie
'Cause I know all your secrets
And I won't let you forget

Follow me under (Follow me under)
Low as we are (Follow me)
Fate is the liar
Feeding this dark
Feeding this dark

Well, you know that you can't hide
And you know that you can't lie
'Cause I know all your secrets
And I won't let you forget

Don't look away
Let the light pour down on our darkest day
If we run to find ourselves, we will run
Forever

Well, you know that you can't hide
And you know that you can't lie
'Cause we know all your secrets
And I won't let you forget


6. WASTED ON YOU

I don't need drugs
I'm already six feet low
Wasted on you
Waiting for a miracle
I can't move on
Feels like we're frozen in time
I'm wasted on you
Just pass me the bitter truth

Love, don't you remember?
We were the ones
Nothing could ever change and love
It's easier not to believe we have broken everything
But here we are
Numb my head till I can't think anymore
But I still feel the pain

I don't need drugs
I'm already six feet low
Wasted on you
Waiting for a miracle
I can't move on
Feels like we're frozen in time
I'm wasted on you
Just pass me the bitter truth

Once this was a garden
This was our world
All of the nightmares stayed in the dark
A little too much time by yourself
And you become the enemy
Just look at us now
Drowning slowly, just to stay true

I don't need drugs
I'm already six feet low
Wasted on you
Waiting for a miracle
I can't move on
I feel like we're frozen in time
I'm wasted on you
Just pass me the bitter truth

Will I ever be the same?
Am I strong enough to change?
Is it in my blood?
Shield my eyes to face the day
Come too far to slip away
But it's killing me to go on without you

I don't need drugs
I'm already six feet low
I'm wasted on you
Waiting for a miracle
I can't move on
Like we're frozen in time
I'm wasted on you
Just pass me the bitter truth


7. BETTER WITHOUT YOU

Stand in the front but shut up till I tell you to go
And don't get caught up in pretend cause you're not in control
Cause this is my world, little girl, you'd be lost on your own
Just hating and waiting and saving up

I'll do you a favor and save you if you sign on the line
Don't worry your pretty little head about the future, it's all fine
Whether you're wrong or you're right, doesn't matter, you're not up to the fight
Keeping my head down 'cause they don't know what I know now

As empires fall to pieces
Our ashes twisting in the air
It makes me smile to know that
I'm better without you

Now look around and remember your friends if you can
Feeding the flames till there's no one to blame it's on your hands
Lost in your lies, pay the price with our lives, you've gone mad
And there's no way out 'cause we all know you're hollow

As empires fall to pieces
Our ashes twisting in the air
It makes me smile to know that
I'm better without you

Not enough, not enough
Not enough to throw it all away
We'd still be falling
We're fallen
Turn it up, turn it up
Never gonna shut me up again
Your time is over
It's over now

As empires fall to pieces
Our ashes twisting in the air
It makes me smile to know that
I'm, I'm better without you


8. USE MY VOICE

Cover my ears and close my eyes
Just long enough to stop the noise
Go on take everything and throw it away
But I will use my voice

Drown every truth in an ocean of lies
Label me bitch because I dare to draw my own line
Burn every bridge and build a wall in my way
But I will use my voice

Whether you like it or not, you're gonna take what I got
If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
But don't you speak for me
No, don't you speak for me

Never mind me, I'm a waste of your time
I'm never gonna fit in the box that you need and I can read between the lines, yeah
Gather your friends and wave your gun in my face
But I will use my voice

Whether you like it or not, you're gonna take what I got
If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
But don't you speak for me
No, don't you speak for me

Whether you like it or not
Whether you like it or not
Whether you like it or not
Whether you like it or not

One day soon
It's gonna fall back on you
No more lies
We're gonna break right through
Like it or not

If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
But don't you speak for me
No, don't you speak for me
Don't you speak for me


9. TAKE COVER

By the way that you talk to me
I can see the lie you're dreaming I'll believe
By the way, don't you forget who you are now
Cause that's not your name

Oh you better take cover
(Cause I'm on my way now)
I'm coming back to take you all down
Move over, if you can
Cause I never lost my crown

Slave to your insecurity
That's what drove you down in the first place
But you haven't learned a thing
Caught in your thick web of lies
Gonna be the bitch you make me out to be

Oh you better take cover
(Nothing you can say now)
You underestimated my wrath
Move over, if you can
I'm gonna give the love back

So you want to play with me?

After it all
Your ego your greed
You dug your grave
So come on inside
Rest in peace

Take cover
(Cause I'm on my way now)
I'm gonna have to take you all down
Move over, if you can
Cause I never lost my crown


10. FAR FROM HEAVEN

Give me a reason
Make me whole again
Wounds should become scars but I'm cracked instead
Can't risk believing
That I would stand a chance
Frozen in the doorway don't want to leave the past

One more night
What I wouldn't give to be with you
For one more night

What if I can't see your light anymore
Cause I've spent too long in the dark
And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe
But I feel so far from heaven

Wake up to a new day
Break my heart again
Dreaming makes for sweet escape but I can't forget
I'm back at the edge now
I never needed you more
Staring down the emptiness that I can't ignore

All my life
Didn't want to dream I could lose you
But you just smiled

What if I can't see your light anymore
Cause I've spent too long in the dark
And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe
But I feel so far from heaven

Is anyone out there, did you give up on us?
Break this silence I'm crushed under love
I don't want to lock down but we've lost so much
Will you forgive me if I can't see your light anymore
Cause I've spent too long in the dark
And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe
But I feel so far from heaven

I feel so far


11. PART OF ME

Not on your life
Won't let it break me, won't give up the fight
But on this last thread, I'm holding so tight
Feed my imaginings, don't let a sweet dream die

Not on your life
I'm not abandoning, I have survived
Somehow still standing through death and through time
I need your love like a drug keeping me alive

Drown me in your blinding light
I will be more than my survival
Own these scars on my heart
Even in dreams, I hear you calling

Breaking the surface, I won't let go
You're part of me

Can't stop me now
Just clawed my way back from deep underground
No time for hatred, no holding back now
Set me on fire, I like it, the way it burns

Hands on your heart
Who really thought we would make it this far?
What good could come of embracing the dark?
We found each other through brokenness and now look how strong we are

Drown me in your blinding light
I will be more than my survival
Own these scars on my heart

Even in dreams, I hear you calling
So I know it's still worth believing, it's not just a feeling
As long as I don't let it go
Don't let me go

I will be more than my survival
Own these scars on my heart

Even in dreams, I hear you calling
Breaking the surface, I won't let go
You're part of me now
And always


12. BLIND BELIEF

I believe in us
I can't remember why I believe in us
These seeds of the past they keep springing up
Love begins with trust
But we can't be trusted

Oh, The future starts with us

Blind belief are you afraid to see
That our fathers were wrong
We hold the key to redemption
Let icons fall

Dare to break away
Tear down this broken machine
Escape your cage
Were falling to pieces

Oh, The future's rising up

Blind belief are you afraid to see
That our fathers were wrong
We hold the key to redemption
Let icons fall

Push through the pain
Unbreak this system
Arms of self sacrifice
Lay them down

Blind belief
Are you afraid to see
That our fathers were wrong
We hold the key to redemption
Love over all
We hold the key to redemption
Love over all
