11th Hour

Album: As The Palaces Burn (2003)
  • The hour of wreckoning draws near
    Judgment day is here and gone
    Sweetly she draws me into her arms
    A liquid embrace to chase the day way.
    Sedate Numb Deaf and Dumb
    Stumbling into solitude.

    A clouded judgment day is fueled.
    Take me under your black wings
    Mark my words and remember me.

    So sweetly she shucks away at my time
    So sweetly she draws me nigh
    Closer and closer towards never ending sleep
    Spin the bottle
    Kiss only the bottle.

    The dark mistress of many, beholden to none
    Slips a ring of needles around your arm in an engagement
    Eternal engagement
    Never consummated.
    Take me under your black wings
    Mark my words and remember me.
    Destroyer of senses.

    So take as needed for the pain
    Another gray morning dawns across an ashen sky.
    My sweet demoness beckons me
    Ever again and again and again and again.
    The dark mistress of many, beholden to none
    My sweet demoness beckons me
    Ever again and again and again and again and again.
    Take me under your black wings.
    Jacked up on the taste of self-destruction Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER

  • Andrew from Colton, CaI love the way the lyris make it seem like he cant escape the vice of alcoholism. Also how he makes it seem great and at the same time horrible, "sweetly she takes me into her arms a liquid embrae to chase the day away" makes it sound good, while "stumbling into solitude" and "closer and closer towards never ending sleep" describes the consequences.
  • Mike from Denver, Codont let the addiction get the better of you. addiction is stronger than you. drinking heavily doesn't make you cool. if you are smart and drink in moderation, that's great.
  • Hugh from Manhattan, NyAlcohol can be okay in moderation just like pretty much everything else. I don't drink because I am on meds but I'm not going to tell someone else what to do. Unless it is someone I know and that person is in deep *deleted*.
  • Mike from Denver, Coalcohol f--ks you up. its stupid. DONT TRY IT. learned that the hard way. dont make the mistake me and my father did. [RIP]
