Paradise Lost

Album: Swan Songs (2008)
  • So watch my chest heave
    As this last breath leaves me
    I am trying to be
    What you're dying to see

    I feel like "fuck man,
    Can't take this, anymore,
    This heart, break this."
    This is life that's so thankless,
    How could he just forsake us?

    Breaks us he makes us
    Hate us he gave us
    Nothing but no trust
    And I am so fucked up
    So let this gun bond us
    Let's hide by this lust
    And once we are just dust
    He'll know that he loved us

    Let it all burn
    I will burn first
    God I've tried, am I lost in your eyes?
    Just let me burn, it's what I deserve.
    God I've lied, am I lost in your eyes?

    So take me and make me
    Weakened and save me
    This hate that you gave me
    Keeps saying the same thing

    To sing when you hurt
    And to sing when you cry
    To sing when you live
    And to sing when you die

    And here at the end
    At the end of the hurt
    All the pain ain't the same
    When it's your turn to burn
    We're the heart for the heartless,
    The thoughts for the thoughtless,
    The eyes for the eyeless
    We're the gods of the godless!

    Let it all burn
    I will burn first
    God I've tried, am I lost in your eyes?
    Just let me burn, it's what I deserve.
    God I've lied, am I lost in your eyes?

    So cry 3 tears for me,
    When it's all gone,
    Sing me this song

    So cry 3 tears for me,
    When it's all gone,
    When it's all gone

    I can not stand
    Who I am I'm this man
    With this blood on my hands
    In this blood I am damned
    So watch my wings burn
    As they burn in the fire
    I'll scatter the ashes
    No need for the choir

    Let it all burn
    I will burn first
    God I've tried, am I lost in your eyes?
    Just let me burn, it's what I deserve.
    God I've lied, am I lost in your eyes?

    This hate that you gave me keeps saying
    Just let me burn,
    Just let me burn

    This hate that you gave me keeps saying
    Just let me burn,
    Just let me burn

    Burn
    Now
    Burn

    Just let me burn
    Now
    Burn

  • John from Beltsville, MdIf they (or anyone) would record a song about the evils, dangers and intolerance of radical Islam, instead of the tired old cliche about being oppressed by Christians, THAT would be brave and rebellious.
  • Haley from Honaker, Vaone of the greatest songs ever. hollywood undead is the greatest band ever!! just let me BURN, it's what i DESERVE!! \m/
  • Ian from Chilli, Ohthis is a nice change of pace. too many people just down religion and god, without acknowledging that its the people who are the problem, not necessarily the deity. if people put aside narrow minded bigotry and just followed the moral teachings of any major religion, the world would be much better off. but people are too caught up in the "im-rite-ur-wrong" mindset. the narrowest minds are connected to loudest mouths. im glad that j3t can acknowledge that its people, not religion itself, that is the problem, and show respect for ppl's beliefs. hu is much more intelligent than they sometimes let on, and their originality gives them an edge. im glad their popularity is picking up
  • Valerie from Tucson, Azthis song is friggen awesome!!!
