Haunt Lyrics

SPYWERKS

You meet a stranger, locking eyes
You meet a stranger, fantasize

You’re falling down again
You’re falling down again

You’re near the stranger, intensifies
You kiss the stranger, electrifies

You feel the stranger, telling lies
You need the stranger, it’s suicide

You’re falling down again
You’re falling down again

BAD DREAMS

I used to love the night
I’d wait all day for darkness to fall
But now the sun goes down
I fear the dreams that I can recall
The voice that calls to bed
Fills me with dread I can’t escape these

Bad dreams
Are haunting me
Questioning
Reality
These bad dreams
Won’t let me sleep
Tormenting
Let me be

I walk around all day
Pretend control is in my grasp and
I know the what night brings now
This second life torments I just laugh
Beneath my smile there’s only terror
‘cause I know they’re waiting…

Bad dreams
Are haunting me
Questioning
Reality
These bad dreams
Won’t let me sleep
Tormenting
Let me be

A faceless man with knives
A wicked girl with who knows my secrets
All those who I’ve done wrong to
Lies I’ve told a bird repeats them
Heavy’s the soul whose sleeping mind
won’t let them turn away these

Bad dreams
Are haunting me
Questioning
Reality
These bad dreams
Won’t let me sleep
Tormenting
Let me be

NEVER SAY

A perfect afternoon, wasting away
Paralyzed, struck by lightning, living in gray
The same old movie scenes rewind and play
Enveloped in the longing, never to say

Never to be the same
Never to call my name
Never to be whole again
So tired of…

Familiar shadows seem to much the same
Light fading endlessly, tricking my brain
Obsessing over fear just suffocates
Every accomplishment just burns away

Never to be the same
Never to call my name
Never to be whole again
So tired of…

KNOXVILLE

You pride yourself
On innocence
You gave your trust
No bitterness

You fell in love
No malcontent
How could you know
The truth could bend

The day you came
Back from his home
You may have thought
You were alone

But then you saw
The evidence
A body hit
With violence

Then what had happened next…was like it was a movie
All out of her control…imprisoned for no reason

A crime listed
As passionate
Authorities
Inadequate

Was the wrong time
But was her place
Her roommate’s
Personal space

How could she know
She’d be accused
They analyzed
Her every move

Until the day
They set her free
Stuck in a jail
In Italy

Then what had happened next…was like it was a movie
All out of her control…imprisoned for no reason

SHADOWS

I can’t hide it
This brown malaise
It follows me around
Been here for days

If I tried to hide would be just as plain to you
The more I say the less you have a clue

Shadows falling
Shadows fading

I can’t reason
With this dark refrain
Denial wins but always leads to shame

If I tried to hide would be just as plain to you
The more I say the less know what to do

Shadows falling
Shadows fading

Shadows falling
Black and biding
Shadows rising
Blue and ceding

SHED

You see a hint of light
That noise was a surprise
Your pulse is quickening
Your eyesight weakening

You feel a thousand eyes
Your hair begins to rise
The dark oppresses you
Scared, cold, without a clue

Woken by metal on my arms
Shoved inside my own doors, alone

Fingers and toes are numb
Where is this coming from?
You know someone is there
Not just a nightmare

You only now can hear
Mind over-run with fear
You feel a sharp attack
Everything now is black

Woken by metal on my arms
Shoved inside my own doors, alone

VALKYRIE

All my days, they have not been in vain
Choosing wise, strong we rise, pick the slain
We prepare, Odin must always reign

Like staring into a flame
Beautiful, causing pain
Weaving your fate in their hands
Your spirit soon will be damned

Riding hard, armed with swords and shields
Crashing down, picking men off the fields
Powerful, who they are is concealed

Like staring into a flame
Beauty that causes pain
Weaving your fate in their hands
Your spirit soon will be damned

RUN

The silence feels as loud
As twenty Hiroshimas
You say “it won’t work out”
That’s all she’s hearing now

Still Running
Blood pumping
Now the only thing
That she knows

Heart is shutting down
Her frown became a fixture
The distance in her eyes
Could paint a million pictures

Still Running
Blood pumping
Now the only thing
That she knows

Alone among the crowd
The moon, it sees right through her
Just say what happens now
She’s fading to a whisper

Still Running
Blood pumping
Now the only thing
That she knows

Awakening Lyrics

AWAKENING

Sitting there with your face of blank indifference
Feeling nothing, spitting back malfeasance
Eyes are dark and my skin is cold and icy
Patience gone, I can feel it rising in me

My body is light and my voice is growing stronger
I hover, I watch you, I scream as you sit frozen
The horror in your eyes fills me with greater meaning
Run and hide, you’ve awakened something evil

In the mirror, staring back is something
It isn’t me, but this me is what I’m feeling
What’s inside me can’t hear your pleas for reason
Doesn’t care that your soul is small and freezing

My body is light and my voice is growing stronger
I hover, I watch you, I scream as you sit frozen
The horror in your eyes fills me with deeper meaning
Run and hide, you’ve awakened something evil

STRAY

The news obsession that we never seem to lose
Aggression flooding senses forcing us to choose the way we think
One more shooting another person’s been accused
There’s fifteen dead, now can you think of an excuse

Shaken by bullets all flying around
Pick up the bodies that lie on the ground
With thoughts and prayers as we sink in despair
Twenty years past yet we still look elsewhere

Desensitized, a long-term morbid love affair
People are dying, tell me when should it become our turn to care?
We see our families they’re diminishing in size
Senseless slaughter, an anti-hero glamorized

Shaken by bullets all flying around
Pick up the bodies that lie on the ground
With thoughts and prayers as we sink in despair
Twenty years past yet we still look elsewhere

Thoughts and prayers, in despair
What’s that sound? Hit the ground

BURN

Feel the wind on my cheeks
Fallen leaves beneath my feet
I inhale a deeper breath
Say goodbye to fearfulness

Just when I thought
This was all behind us
Persecution
For having a different kind of belief system
But paranoia strikes them
Burn the witches
Time to lock them all up

When it was my turn
I looked away
Begin the trial
Of the day
Test her to see if she floats
Into the bay
When it was my turn
I look away

Burn her, just burn her
She was innocent
Hang her, then stone her
What was your intent?
Rape her, then crush her
Not by accident
Burn her, erase her
She was innocent

Here we are centuries later
Here we are ‘cause nothing ever changes
Does it?

Burn her, just burn her
She was innocent
Hang her, then stone her
Begin the descent
Into the madness
Not by accident
Burn her, erase her
She was innocent

Feel the wind
On my cheeks
Falling leaves
Beneath her feet
I inhale a deeper breath
Say hello to fearfulness

BLEED

How I am you ask? Well I’m still bleeding
You say it’s in the past, well I’m still bleeding
Tell me that this wasn’t quite the plan
Standing there you just can’t escape this feeling
Tell you my emotions, raw and reeling
Maybe we should exit while we can

A fire and a shooting star
Remember?
The cold and those callous words
Remember?

Love and warmth it was always fast and fleeting
Constant ridicule always repeating
Submissive to the bruising and the pain
How I am you ask? Well I’m still bleeding
Out of sight out of mind the only freeing
Feeling is to cut your bloody hand

A fire and a shooting star
Remember?
The cold and those careless words
Remember?

Oh Let me go
Undertow

You embrace every hit
You deny all of it
You embrace every hit
You deny it

Oh let me go

TAKEN

Heart beating suddenly
Feet won’t move, I just freeze
Mouth covered cannot breath
Can’t fight back underneath

Stop, not that, this
Please free my wrists
Choke, spit, hit, piss
I want to live

I’m floating high above
What should I think of?

Played out your fantasy
Tied to my canopy
I was a bride to be
Now no one touches me

Stop, not that, this
Please free my wrists
Choke, spit, hit, piss
I want to live

I’m floating high above
What should I think of?

SHIMMER

I dip my toe in
Dreaming of floating
I swim the ocean
The salt is cleansing

Feeling absolution
I can go peacefully

The sun is setting
The water shimmers
The seagulls crying
The wind is biting

Feeling absolution
I can go peacefully

It’s perfect timing
It was a good year
I’ll swim the ocean
And end my life there

Feeling absolution
I can go peacefully

KEENING

She is floating through the air
Tattered clothes and the world’s most insufferable stare
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

She delivers any news
How your house will fall and someone in your family will lose
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

Eyes are glowing in the night
Piercing through the darkness paralyzing you with fright
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

Hallowed faces taking their flight
Warning of the next death, banshees screaming with delight
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
