It Makes No Difference Who We Are lyrics - Celldweller

I am still here waiting
I'm anticipating
While they are orchestrating
To grant the wish that I am making

No price to great, no distance too far
If I can wish upon a Blackstar
It makes no difference where they are
They'll grant my wish upon a Blackstar

We are all here waiting
We're anticipating
While they are orchestrating
To grant the wishes we are making

It makes no difference who we are
It makes no difference who we are

No price too great, no distance too far
If we could wish upon a Blackstar
It makes no difference who we are
When we have wished upon a Blackstar
When we have wished upon a Blackstar
They'll grant our wish upon a Blackstar

Louder Than Words lyrics - Celldweller

Actions speak louder than words do

Actions speak louder

Shut up!

So here we go again
You're opening your mouth
Before you think
Your insincerities
Are clinging to me like the stench of your last drink
Shut up!

Did I really hear you say you're sorry?
Hard for me to believe
I don't get how you're buying your own story
You're piss broke emotionally

I'm watching
Listening
The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do
Shut up!

So here it comes again
A deafening parade of duplicity
Birds falling from the sky
The air is poisoned by the breath
You waste on me
Shut up!

The thought of you has become so disappointing
Hard for you to believe?
You never seem to fail to change the stories
You so effortlessly breed

I'm watching
Listening
The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do
Shut up!

Shut up!
Actions speak louder...

It's time to play again
Deception is your game
But why would you want to wear that shame?
It speaks louder than words

Shut up!

Actions speak louder than words do
I don't want to hear dead words from you
Actions speak louder than words do
I just want to see what you will do

The thought of you has become so disappointing
Actions speak louder than words do (So here we go again)
Shut up!

The volume's always the same

Actions speak louder
Shut up!

So Long Sentiment lyrics - Celldweller

Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms decaying
Alone to face the rest of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Inhaling all these memories
Like a breath of fire sent from hell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll miss you

So long Sentiment
It doesn't matter now

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?
Fixated on these memories
Like a prisoner inside a cell

With nothing useful to say and no one to listen to it
Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it
Consider questionable things to try to get me through it
I've tried to push it away but I always give into it
Long for the taste of the rain that finally helps subdue it
And washes this all away

Under this crushing wait, I'm sinking
It never goes away, the thinking
Echoes in empty rooms are saying
“Time to erase the rest of me”

Eon lyrics - Celldweller

(Now I'm pushing, I'm pushing)
(Now I'm pushing through)
(I'm pushing through face)
I'm pushing through face-down
I'm pushing through face - down

I'm pacing inside this empty room
Told to wait til my life's withdrawn
Uneasy, I'm waiting here anxiously
It's a waste and I won't wait another Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through
I'm pushing through
Face-down and pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I can't feel anything

Erasing my final memories
They won't stop til my whole life's gone
Uneasy, I wait for normality
It's a waste and I won't wait another Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through
I'm pushing through
Face-down and pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I can't feel anything

When life is gone without a trace
And hope is lost in time's embrace
I won't wait or hesitate
'Cause I'm pushing through face-down
I won't wait or hesitate
'Cause I'm pushing through

If time's a song, I won't wait for its reprise
I am done wishing farewells and goodbyes
I won't let this place overshadow my birthright
I won't wait another Eon

Impatiently, I'm cutting through the earth in front of me
Bone on stone, blood and sweat married
Can't hear the voice that whispers fears when my heart is pounding in my ears
All I see in my mind is not what I've left behind
But all the things I've been missing in that lost Eon

Endless night
Long for light
My head against this tomb
And pushing through

Trapped and isolated
Time is dislocated
Eternity is what a moment seems
When I am lost inside this dream
When I can't speak and I can't scream
And I can't feel anything

Face-down and pushing through

The Best It's Gonna Get lyrics - celldweller

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get
This is the best it's gonna get
And this is the best it's gonna get

Sit down and shut up I don't want to hear a word come out of your mouth
Why won't you listen to me?
(You're dreaming) Outside life's great but inside you're screaming
It's not how you thought it would be?

(Aimlessly)
Are you hoping for something?
(Patiently)
Waiting for some sign?
(Mindfully)
It's time to jump in or simply get the hell out
(Finally)
I think you better make up your mind

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get

C'mon, get up shake it off and work your way beyond the fallout
But you still won't listen to me
(You're screaming) Bam, the smack of the truth wakes you from your dreaming
So inconveniently

(Irony)
It sucks that it was all for nothing
(Painfully)
Your plans were redesigned
(Mournfully)
It's a shame you didn't stand for something
(Finally)
Now it's too late to make up your mind

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get

Your life's been overrated
Hopelessly complicated
You can keep your fame and you can
Keep your money
Keep your beauty

It's a shame how long you've waited
Constantly constipated
So grab your knees and clench your teeth and
Reap your glory
Reap your glory

Your perfect world
Has been upset
And this is the best it's gonna get
Best it's gonna get

Your perfect world
Has been up-
Set
And this is the best it's gonna get

The Lucky One lyrics - celldweller

Payback is overdue
So much for my I. O. U.
My head is stuck underneath God's thumb
I guess that makes me the lucky one

Stupidity is a constant trend
Murphy and I have become best friends
Hooray for dreams gone before they've come
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one

[Chorus:]
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am a comedian
The joke's on me, I'm the lucky one

A sinking ship, holes in my lifeboat
I'm sorry for choking but I’ve got a wishbone stuck in my throat
I never thought this could be such fun
Hooray for me I'm the lucky one

[Chorus:]
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am a comedian
The joke's on me, I'm the lucky one

[Bridge:]
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck
I tried to push straight through the suck
Head first but now my f'ing head is stuck
I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Lucky for me I don't believe in luck

I don't believe in luck
I don't believe in luck

I'm feeling like a stupid schmuck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck
Thank God I don't believe in luck

Rusted linings on my black clouds
It's raining piss, will somebody tell me what's that all about?
Wish on a blackstar until it comes
It's here for me, I'm the lucky one

I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am only human
I guess that makes me the lucky one

I guess that makes me the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
Hooray for me, I'm the lucky one
I am, I am, I am
The lucky one
I am only human
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I guess that makes me the lucky one
I guess that makes me the lucky one

I guess that makes you the lucky one

I guess that makes us the lucky ones

Tainted lyrics - Celldweller

It's not a question of why and if she'll make it
It's more a question of when and how she'll take it
Standing out there alone completely naked
Another secret's been kept and left her tainted

There's nothing more she can do to make them change it
She does the best that she can to rearrange it
There's still the question of how she's grown so tainted
A tattered canvas unfurls, watch as they paint it

[Chorus:]
She's at the edge of the world
She's there standing alone
She's the loneliest girl
And now she finally feels like she's coming home

[Bridge:]
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying [x4]

She fought them bravely until defenses caved in
Pressing their teeth to her neck until she gave in
Now there's no question this girl is well acquainted
With suffering in a world that's left her tainted

[Chorus:]
She's at the edge of the world
She's there standing alone
She's the loneliest girl
And now she finally feels like she's coming home

She's just done what she’s been told
Her heart is turning to stone
Here at the end of this girl
This time she finally feels like she's coming home

Like she's coming home
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Like she's coming home
She's at the edge of the world
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying
Like she's coming home
She's at the edge of the world
Like she's coming home
Like she's coming home
Slowly fading and decaying
Please ignore what they're saying

She's coming home

I Can't Wait lyrics - celldweller


This flame is coalescing
This fire's burning bright
I know I’ll get burned but it’s alright
(Waiting anxiously)

It’s too late to change direction
I’m fixed on her in my mind
Trade sense for sensation this time
(Takes control of me)

I can’t wait

I want to be with you right now anyway
Reckless, so what? I can’t wait to be around you

Take me, break me, right now - Why wait til ‘hell to pay’?
So dumb, so what? I can’t wait to be around you

Her skin is laced with poison
Her words are laced with lies
Affliction is waiting in her eyes
(Take them willingly)

I can’t control this compulsion
Like a moth into the flame
Her fiery embrace completes my shame
(Don’t let go of me)

We bathe in this denial
Lay bare the secret place
For just a little while
Submit to this embrace

Pain unfolding
Shame beholding
Don’t let go of me

Gift For You lyrics - Celldweller

Hello again
I still try to remember how this all began
You can't undo
It's okay though because I've got a gift for you

Poison in the well - I've got a gift for you
A special place in hell - I've got a gift for you
the perfect place to dwell - I've got a gift for you
and though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

Hello again
I still can't remember how this all began
One thing left to do
So I'm here now and I've got a gift for you

Poison in the well - I've got a gift for you
A special place in hell - I've got a gift for you
the perfect place to dwell - I've got a gift for you
and though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

Sickness for the skin - I've got a gift for you
a cancer for within - I've got a gift for you
an ending to begin - I've got a gift for you
and though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

Blackstar lyrics - Celldweller

You must have wished on it
Because I saw them riding in on a Blackstar
They’d rather chew than spit
And they’re full of piss and vinegar

There’s no way to persuade them to give up their crusade
They’ve come to grant the wish you should have never made
Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything

They’ll let you try
To reverse everything
Don’t waste your time
Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything

They move without a sound
And their eyes will paralyze who gaze into
They’ll leave you gagged and bound
To the whip of the wish they’ve granted you

Looks like they’re over it
I saw them riding off on a Blackstar
With nothing left to chew, they split
Because it makes no difference who you are

Birthright lyrics - celldweller



(Fight!)
(Fight!)

Get back up, what are you waiting for this time?
I'm over playing with this plight
But I'm still handcuffed, ball-gagged, facedown to the floor
And I'm waiting while I'm hating what I'm waiting for

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
These voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me

(Don't back down)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm helpless
(Don't back down)
This is over tonight

Don't back up, your ass is to the wall again and
Aren't you sick of wasting so much time?
And yes it's true you're a fool if you think you were born
To be waiting while you're hating what you're waiting for

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
These voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me

(Don't back down)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm helpless
(Don't back down)
This is over tonight

How could have I been so earthbound
With my heart in the depths and my face in the ground?
It's time to uproot myself and move on

How could have I been making sound
When my mouth and my lungs had both fused to the ground?
It's time to uproot myself and move on

The voices in my head have all begun to sing
(The voices in your head have all begun to sing)
And they sure as hell hope I am listening
(I sure as hell hope you are listening)

It's time to take ahold of what belongs to me
It's time to walk away with no apologies
These voices in the mirror start quietly
And now they're screaming back at me

(Don't back down)
Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding
(Don't back down)
This is my birthright
(Don't back down)
I'm so sick of feeling like I'm helpless
(Don't back down)
This is over tonight
Over tonight, this is over tonight
Tonight

The Seven Sisters lyrics - Celldweller

“Look up at the stars son” my father was saying
“Now go wish upon one then spend your life waiting”

The Northern Lights could hear me whispering
Hunter Orion are you listening?
Nine rings of Saturn circle endlessly
And I’m still waiting

I cast my hope upon The Pleiades
The Seven Sisters who would come for me
They’d fall to earth to grant a child’s dream
But I’m still waiting

Alone in this darkness there’s a dream still worth saving
I cling to a promise, and I am still waiting

Memories Of A Girl I Haven't Met lyrics - Celldweller

In this lonely place
Bathed in silence
And thoughts of you

I can't see your face
But I'm trying
To envision you

So are you really out there,
Are you awake with memories?

Of a boy you haven't met yet,
Who's wished upon the Pleiades?

Against The Tide lyrics - Celldweller

I finally get what you've been saying
Now that we're knee deep side by side
The storm clouds are circling above us
As we struggle against the tide

I feel your grip firm on my shoulder
But this fear in my head won't subside
They patiently circle around us
As we hold out

Oh father, why have they forsaken me?
You warned me that they would
Because it's passing down the bloodline
It's spoken and misunderstood

We're losing light
And strength of will
The darkened depths beckoning still
Then we hold on against the tide

Another storm you're left to fight alone
Remember son, you're reaping what you've sown
Under the waves we're sinking like a stone
I'm sorry son, you're reaping what you've sown
[x2]

You're reaping what you've sown
[x4]

We're slowly losing ground
And hope is harder to maintain
We know the prayers we prayed
Feel lost like tears in the rain
The water is pulling down
It's eclipsing the sun
The ending that we knew would come
Has finally begun

You're reaping what you've sown
It's finally begun
You're reaping what you've sown
I'm sorry son, you're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown
You're reaping what you've sown

This sorrow weighs down on my shoulders
This fear is getting harder to hide
You'll leave me alone in this darkness
Left to hold out
Against the tide

Goodbye lyrics - Celldweller

How long will this moment wait?
Goodbye... (Wait here)

How long will this moment wait
Here for me to realize
I'm needing to understand
Before this moment says goodbye (Wait here)
Said goodbye (Wait here)
This moment said goodbye (Wait here)
Said goodbye (Wait here)
Goodbye...

So far, so close to what I knew
Would be the last thing I would do
I wish now I'd understood
Before that moment said goodbye

Goodbye (wait here)
Said goodbye (wait here)
This moment said goodbye (wait here)
Said goodbye (wait here)

Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye... (wait here)
Goodbye... (wait here)
Goodbye... (wait here)
Goodbye... (wait here)
Goodbye... (wait here)
Goodbye... (wait here)

How long will this moment wait?

Switchback lyrics - Celldweller

(Switch back)
(Switch back)
(Switch back)
(Switch back)

I've made a choice that I regret
Now, what I see is what I get

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) Ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

A painful picture that I can't forget
Now, what I see is what I get

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

Chained to what I can't
Reclaim, I'll never be the
Same

(And there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) Ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch back (and there's no)

(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(And everybody) And
Everybody foolin' with their rick rack, and
It's about time we put them on their back
Meaner and leaner, we take up the slack
Klayton and Celldweller with no way to switch back
Cuttin' you up with razor blade
Chokin' you on them words you say
Hittin' you rip-rap on you made
And the Celldweller is unafraid

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

Chained to what I can't
Reclaim, I'll never be the
Same, won't be the same
Again (be the same)
(Again)

(And there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch back (and there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch
Back

I've got no way to switch back
It's too late to look back
Too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

Stay With Me (Unlikely) (Detroit 2000) lyrics - Celldweller

Sick of this mind and the games it plays
Mental enemies want to push me back again
Here they come running wanting me up on that
Tree crucified (wait a minute)

Whatever words they say (me who said it)
Whomever they betray (me who did it)
Whenever they're awake it makes me die

There's so much on my mind
We're given so little time
There's no way to hold on as it passes by
So lead me into denial
Help me forget for awhile

Stay with me, please don't go
If you want to be alone
Stay with me, please

I don't have much else to say (unlikely)
I'd rather you go away (unlikely)
I don't need something from you (unlikely)
Though some say I will heal over time, it
Doesn't seem too likely
It seems unlikely

Under My Feet (Detroit 2000) lyrics - Celldweller

So this is how it feels to suffer?
And I had so much to say
But it's over now
And I'm going down
Alone, alone

I've no guarantees
I'll recognize my disease
Before my time has gone
It's all I've found
Can't get the hell off the ground
Out from under my feet

Promises and wishes all mean nothing
When it's me that I'm speaking to
Wanting something
Won't mean I will see it through

I don't need to see these visions to remind me
That I'm dying from the inside out
Wanting you here
It still means I must do without

I can't criticize your reasons for living
When I'm the one missing them
Wanting, dreaming
That I might find where they come from
(Find where they come from)
(Where they come from)

I dream you
And I want to
Be near you
I can't get up out from under my feet
I've tried to
But can't get it through
I need to
God is all I've found
Can't get the hell off the ground
Out from under my feet

So this is how it feels, you sucker
And you've had too much to say
But it's over now
You're finally going down
Alone, alone

Back

It's too late to look back
Too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

So Sorry To Say (Detroit 2000) lyrics - Celldweller


So lost, tell me how can it be?
Desperately trying
To understand why
I push you from me

So close, but so far away
I cannot see
How this happened to me
I'm so sorry to say!

So lost, for so long I cannot tell...
How in my mind
And what moment in time
I woke up in this cell

So close, yet so far away!
I cannot see how
This happened to me
I'm so sorry to say!

I want you to go away from, from me!
I want you so much to stay with...ME!

I want you to go away from, from me!
I want you so much to stay with...ME!

...go away from, away from me!

...please stay with...ME!

...go away from, away from me!

...please stay with...ME!

I want you to go away!
I want you so much to stay!
So sorry to say!

I want you to go away!
I want you so much to stay!
So sorry to say!

I want you to go away from, from me!
I want you so much to stay with...ME!
So sorry to say!

I want you to go away from, from me!
(So close, but so far away!)
I want you so much to stay with...ME!
So sorry to say!

I'm so sorry to say!

I'm to sorry to say!

Sorry!
Sorry, I'm so sorry to say!

(I cannot see how
This happened to me)

I'm so sorry to say!

Afraid This Time (Detroit 2000) lyrics - Celldweller

Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now

Build them up
High and strong so you'll never have to hurt too long
Put them up
'Til they surround and there's no real you left to be found
Hold it up
High above no fear of hope or trust or love
Close it up
And hold your ground and wait until it's time to finally close it down

Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now

It isn't easy to admit
I don't think I'm believing it

I'm afraid this time
(This isn't easy to admit, but I don't think I'm believing it)
It's not the same this time
(This isn't easy to admit, but I don't think I'm believing it)

Build them up
So you'll never have to hurt too long
Put them up
There's no real you left to be found
Hold it up
No fear of hope or trust or love
Close it up
Wait until it's time to finally close it down

(This isn't easy to admit, but I don't think I'm believing it)
I'm afraid this time
(This isn't easy to admit, but I don't think I'm believing it)
It's not the same this time
(Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now)
I'm afraid
(Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now)

Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now

I'm afraid this time
(This isn't easy to admit, but I don't think I'm believing it)
I'm afraid this time
(Even if you want, you can't touch me now)
It's not the same this time
(Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now)
I'm afraid
(Even if you want, you can't touch me now
I'm afraid
(Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now)

This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid

This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid this time

This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
This isn't easy

Switchback lyrics - Celldweller

(Switch back)
(Switch back)
(Switch back)
(Switch back)

I've made a choice that I regret
Now, what I see is what I get

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) Ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

A painful picture that I can't forget
Now, what I see is what I get

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

Chained to what I can't
Reclaim, I'll never be the
Same

(And there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) Ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch back (and there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (Too)
(Late to) Ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)
(Switch back, switch back)

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)

(It's too late to look back)
(I've got no way to switch back)
It's too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

(And everybody) And
Everybody foolin' with their rick rack, and
It's about time we put them on their back
Meaner and leaner, we take up the slack
Klayton and Celldweller with no way to switch back
Cuttin' you up with razor blade
Chokin' you on them words you say
Hittin' you rip-rap on you made
And the Celldweller is unafraid

(Switch back)
(Switch back)

Wait, how can it be too
Late? 'Cause I don't want to
Play with such a price to
Pay

Chained to what I can't
Reclaim, I'll never be the
Same, won't be the same
Again (be the same)
(Again)

(And there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch back (and there's no)
(Way to)

It's too late to look back (too)
(Late to) ain't
Okay, I got no way to switch
Back

I've got no way to switch back
It's too late to look back
Too late to look back, ain't
Okay, I got no way to (switch back)

Stay With Me (Unlikely) lyrics - Celldweller

Sick of this mind and the games it plays
Mental enemies want to push me back again
Here they come running wanting me up on that
Tree crucified (wait a minute)

Whatever words they say (me who said it)
Whomever they betray (me who did it)
Whenever they're awake it makes me die

There's so much on my mind
We're given so little time
There's no way to hold on as it passes by
So lead me into denial
Help me forget for awhile

Stay with me, please don't go
If you want to be alone
Stay with me, please

I don't have much else to say (unlikely)
I'd rather you go away (unlikely)
I don't need something from you (unlikely)
Though some say I will heal over time, it
Doesn't seem too likely
It seems unlikely

The Last Firstborn lyrics - Celldweller



Oh man, I can't believe that you did what they said you did
And to this day I've still gotta say
That in my mind I question it
I wish I knew what you had meant
Before you went and left me wondering to
Just an echo of your voice

'Listen...'

Now I wait to take my turn to bleed
Like a kid playing with a razor blade
And wonder if I have the balls at all
Or am I gonna be afraid

Where are you? What do you think?
'Cos I'm not sure when
Knocking at death's door
If i will be welcome in
Or be left alone outside

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen, my son)

I see the darkness
Surround the shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(Firstborn, last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen, my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(Firstborn, last one)

I guess there comes a point when you think to yourself
"This isn't worth it, it isn't worth it"
And now I feel what you felt
And now I feel what you felt inside, brother
And now I feel what you felt
This isn't worth it, it isn't worth it

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen, my son)

I see the darkness
Surround the shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(Firstborn, last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen, my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(Firstborn, last one)

Listen

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way

Live a life in hell through a mortal shell
Asphyxiating smell for a crime
Lifetime imagination locked in a cell
And to the other firstborn
I see the same scene that
Must play over in your mind
And now how much more
I'm sure it's fucked with your head
Just like it's fucked up mine

Listen
My son
Firstborn
Last one
The message you sent out to me
I can't change what's meant to be
The message you sent out to me
I can't change what's meant to be

(What am I supposed to do now?)

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark

I see the darkness
Surround the shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(My son)

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen, my son)

I see the darkness
Surround the shape on the ground
The killer straight up and a body face down
(Firstborn, last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen, my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(Firstborn, last one)

(Firstborn)
You are the last one
(Firstborn)

Under My Feet lyrics - Celldweller


So this is how it feels to suffer?
And I had so much to say
But it's over now
And I'm going down
Alone, alone

I've no guarantees
I'll recognize my disease
Before my time has gone
It's all I've found
Can't get the hell off the ground
Out from under my feet

Promises and wishes all mean nothing
When it's me that I'm speaking to
Wanting something
Won't mean I will see it through

I don't need to see these visions to remind me
That I'm dying from the inside out
Wanting you here
It still means I must do without

I can't criticize your reasons for living
When I'm the one missing them
Wanting, dreaming
That I might find where they come from
(Find where they come from)
(Where they come from)

I dream you
And I want to
Be near you
I can't get up out from under my feet
I've tried to
But can't get it through
I need to
God is all I've found
Can't get the hell off the ground
Out from under my feet

So this is how it feels, you sucker
And you've had too much to say
But it's over now
You're finally going down
Alone, alone

I Believe You lyrics - Celldweller

This is my excuse to testify
Been a beaten down boy
And I don't know why
That's all right
That's all right

Well the truth was a lie and I don't know
How it got me to follow, whoa
And it's true that the lie
That was sold me
Will never let me go

What I needed you to say
Was hidden far away
This is why I've had to justify
My head is shaken, yeah but that's all right
What I needed to believe
Was hidden far from me
That's all right 'cos I believe you

Take advantage of a malleable mind
Been a weakened sucker
Boy without a spine
But that's all right
That's all right

Tell me that I've got to fight your fights
And now I'm a bleeding boy without a life
But that's all right
That's all right

Well the truth was a lie and I don't know
How it got me to follow, whoa
And it's true that the lie
That was sold me
Will never let me go

What I needed you to say
Was hidden far away
This is why I've had to justify
My head is shaken, yeah but that's all right
What I needed to believe
Was hidden far from me
That's all right 'cos I believe you

That's all right
It's almost
Psycho

Don't feel bad because I won't cry
I'll do your will
And not ask why
But that's all right because I believe you

What I needed you to say
Was hidden far away
This is why I've had to justify
My head is shaken, yeah but that's all right
What I needed to believe
Was hidden far from me
That's all right
That's all right

What I needed you to say
Was hidden far away
This is why I've had to justify
My head is shaken, yeah but that's all right
What I needed to believe
Was hidden far from me
That's all right 'cos I believe you

That's all right 'cos I believe you
That's all right
That's all right

Frozen lyrics - Celldweller

Inside this fantasy
It seems so real to me
Synthetic ecstasy, when her legs are open
True life behind the wall
Where men and angels fall
A fading memory, when my mind is frozen

I can see a frozen point in time
Where her figure still awaits
Tongue of fire tracing lips outline
Where frozen breath originates

With one motion of her wanting eyes
She strips everything away
This one moment is intensified
And the colors all fade to grey

I am in the only place that I want to be
Though we know that it ends eventually
But it's all right 'cause right now, we're frozen

"I want to forget mistakes they've helped me make
It's better to be broken than to break"

Inside this fantasy
It seems so real to me
Synthetic ecstasy, when her legs are open
True life behind the wall
Where men and angels fall
A fading memory, when my mind is frozen

{Let's go
Let's go}

I can see a frozen point in time
That is easy to retrace
Light and darkness are both intertwined
The elements are in their place

With one motion of her wanting mind
The real world begins to fade
And all the hateful things I have become
Temporarily go away

Inside this fantasy
It seems so real to me
Synthetic ecstasy, when her legs are open
True life behind the wall
Where men and angels fall
A fading memory, when my mind is frozen
Frozen

When my mind's frozen
I'll take you anywhere you want to go
Far from anything that feels like home (let's go)
You are anyone I want to be
(It's here and now, and now it's only you and me)

It's never enough (mm, that's true)
I want to stay here (yeah and I do too)
Breakin' it down (takin' it down)
With smell (smell), touch (touch)
Taste (taste), sight (sight) and sound (sound)

How long will I be here without you near
Because I'm so cold
Break them first or I'll get broken
Is not what I was told, now I'm so cold
I'm so cold
So cold

Inside this fantasy
It seems so real to me
Synthetic ecstasy, when her legs are open
True life behind the wall
Where men and angels fall
A fading memory, when my mind is frozen

Inside this fantasy
It seems so real to me
Synthetic ecstasy, when her legs are open
True life behind the wall
Where men and angels fall
A fading memory, when my mind is frozen
Frozen
Frozen (I'm so cold)
Frozen

(Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold
Let's go
I'm so cold)
