Asylum

  • No remnants were ever found of it
    Feeling the hot bile
    With every fake smile
    Though no evidence was ever found
    It never went away completely

    I try to appellate a holy sound of it
    Another day gone
    Another night's drawn
    Dark forces pull me underground
    And never went away completely

    How can I feel this empty
    I will not recover this time
    This loneliness is killing me

    Will I ever know peace of mind again
    I don't believe it
    I can't achieve it
    I think I know it's just another sign that
    Never went away completely

    Terror is coursing in me
    Can you find a moment
    Where I have to be
    And feel you die
    In asylum (I live a lie)
    Don't you know I'm in love with you
    And I wasn't ready
    For asylum (Relive a lie)
    To let go
    Now it's dragging me into your grave
    Your asylum (Forget the lie)
    Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you in time
    But the loneliness is killing me, yeah!

    Death's images are all around again
    They're right behind me
    They're gonna find me
    Judge me for my mortal sin
    That have enveloped me completely

    I know I'll never know a peaceful night again
    Afraid they'll hear me
    They don't fear me
    Punishment for me of a moral crime
    The debt was never paid completely

    Terror is coursing in me
    Can you find a moment
    Where I have to be
    And feel you die
    In asylum (I live a lie)
    Don't you know I'm in love with you
    And I wasn't ready
    For asylum (Relive a lie)
    To let go
    Now it's dragging me into your grave
    Your asylum (Forget the lie)
    Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you in time
    But the loneliness is killing me

    In the end there will be no suffering (More suffering)
    In the end we will find out everything (Not everything)
    In the end you may question your belief (What belief?)
    In the end you will realize someday
    How you were deceived
    This has gone on too long (too long)
    No more demonic race
    Destroyer come to light
    Because the memory is killing me

    In asylum (I live a lie)
    I let go now it's dragging me into your grave
    For asylum (We live a lie)
    Overcome and the feeling that I won't get to join you time (without you)
    This world is not fulfilling me

    Don't make me live in asylum
    I live alive
    Don't want to live in asylum
    I live a lie
    Don't make me live in asylum
    I am a lie Writer/s: DAN DONEGAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, MICHAEL WENGREN, MIKE WENGREN

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI saw them open with this (Remnants/Asylum) on the Music as a Weapon V tour. Really cool. I was in the moshpit and Dan looked right at me during the "look in my face/stare in my soul" part of Stupify.
