Tales of a Scorched Earth

 

Lyrics

farewell goodnight last one out turn out the lights
and let me be, let me die inside
let me know the way from of this world of hate in you
cause the die is cast, and the bitch is back
and we're all dead yeah we're all dead
inside the future of a shattered past
i lie just to be real, and i'd die just to feel
why do the same old things keep on happening?
because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

bless the martyrs and kiss the kids
for knowing better, for knowing this
cause you're all whores and i'm a fag
and i've got no mother and i've got no dad
to save me the wasted, save me from myself
i lie just to be real, and i'd die just to feel
why do the same old things keep on happening?
because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

if i believe, if i decieve, if i defend you now that way
would you believe, could you recieve, could you have faith
no one is is ever gone
and time is everything and i have none

everybody's lost just waiting to be found
everyone's a thought just waiting to fade
so fuck it all cause i don't care
so what somehow somewhere we dared
to try to dare to dare for a little more
i lie just to be real, and i'd die just to feel
why do the same old things keep on happening?
because beyond my hopes there are no reasons

Notes

Some of the notorious middle section may be wrong, parts of it were taken from an early version of the lyrics, which goes: "if i believe, if i decieve, if i defend you now that way, would you believe, could you receive, could you have faith, to tempt me, to love me, that now is never lost and you are worth it all, that time is everything and no days can be saved."
