One Eight Seven

Album: From the Depths of Dreams (EP) (2003)
  • It's so nice sitting very still,
    In a room where no one else can feel, the pain that breaks my heart each day
    I'm not okay.
    Sunlight shining through my window, let's me know that I'm still alive
    But why did I ever let you inside my heart?
    I'm such a fool.
    I paint my face in shades of blood and grey and take a seat right next to me
    But I should have known that you were a killer.
    But now I'm dead.

    A gaping hole, shot through my heart
    A lost connection from your poison dart
    Shot from your tongue to end my life.
    But If your Blowing at the fire to light your strife.

    You'll never know, oh yeah, you'll never know, oh no.
    The hardest thing about dying is, knowing you'll never see the light of day.

    A gaping hole...(shot through my heart)
    A lost connection from your poison dart.
    My head now spins and my ears bleed gold.
    I try so fucking hard, but I can't fit your mold.

    The hardest thing about dying is, knowing you'll never see the light of day.
    The hardest thing about dying is, knowing you'll never see the light of day.

    You ripped my heart out, you tore my eyes out, now you're gonna pay.
    I'll stab you one time.
    I'll eat your heart out, so you feel my pain.
    Don't you know that I always see you in all of my dreams?

    I wanna kill you.
    I wanna kill you now.
    I'm insane.

  • Landon from Winchester, OhWooping good! I made a soundtrack CD for my experience with my first girlfriend: getting together at a dance, her breaking up with me, getting together again, then she cheated on me! This song is the closing track of the CD, and Holy crap I love it! It soothes down all my anger!
  • Laura from Bham, United KingdomI love this song, it's my favorite song by them. It makes me really sad, but I love the beginning guitar bit!
