ALESANA


Hymn For The Shameless Lyrics

Saw your eyes today in a memory
Painted in the sky
You smiled and said to me
A love like this can never truly die

So now the show's over
And I've got to disguise the thing I've become
I only wish I could stop laughing
I grin because the joke is on them this time
They don't have a clue

Calm consumes me

I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

I am the face of death standing right
Behind you yet you're oblivious
To my cold breath
On your neck, is it just too easy?
Am I just too good at this?

I am the chosen one
I am the end of all
And now you are mine

Calm consumes me

I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

Saw your eyes today
In a memory painted in the sky
You smiled and said to me
A love like this can never truly die

Let's just say you're right
And the nightmare ends, we wake up side by side
What makes you think that I would let you live?
I've really lost my mind

Behold, for I am the will of the reaper
Beg for the mercy of your worthless angels

As relief washes over me, calm consumes me

I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make

Throughout all the songs on the album, Alesana takes Edgar Allan Poe's Annabel Lee(a poem Poe wrote after his wife Virginia died), and distorts it in sick ways that im not sure Poe would feel about it
