Empty Lyrics

Open Aeon

"Ghost Beside You"


Sour, is the scent I taste when you're near
Power, is the gift I tend to lack
Take me, close my eyes and feel your breath
Break me, because it seems that's all I'm worth

Am I the ghost beside you
Am I the waste behind the stairs
Am I the ghost beside you
Am I the waste behind the stairs

Rain still falls, the clouds won't clear,
for this curse
Memories stain, everyone is cold and black
Release this vision I don't want to fall
But the time has come to realize
Rape this body of all it's faith
Too much, too tired to reach the sky

Am I the ghost beside you
Am I the waste behind the stairs
Am I the ghost beside you
Am I the waste behind the stairs

Am I the ghost beside you
Am I the ghost beside you

"Torn"


Delusional thoughts sweep
Across unstructured screens
Fueled by hopeless failures
I can not explain, this fucking strain

But I just, Can't get over (x8)

Washed up in the filth of reality
My favorite dreams are always with me
So reluctant to leave the hypersleep
I don't want to fall down again

Soaked in a loss of faith
A self doubt that's so hard to kick
Always pleading, Always bleeding from
the inside out
Uncontrollable fragmentation

But I just, Can't get over (x8)

Washed up In the filth of reality
My favorite dreams are always with me
So reluctant to leave the hypersleep
I don't want to fall down again
(x4)

"Blue"


I barely face the mirror
I see no reflection at all
I can't tell how far I've fallen
The walls move in so tight

Sometimes I can't wake up
Everything around me
Appears so fake, and far away.
I stumble as I fall

And it feels like I've been crawling forever
And this feeling I get when you're this close is so pure.
I can not seem to clear you from my head,
I don't seem to mind, I like it this way

I feel I'm disconnected from the world
Your picture is in my head
Every sector I complete
regenerates upon itself

I'll never leave this dream
I'm forever here to stay
I have nothing left to give
these memories will never fade

And it feels like I've been crawling forever
And this feeling I get when you're this close is so pure
I can not seem to clear you from my head
I don't seem to mind, I like it this way
(x3)

"Scarred"


I lay awake at night listening to the rain
I close my eyes, I can see her face again.

She says to me, she's so afraid to be alone
She says to me, she just can't wait to come home

I just want to take her away from this place
I just want to take her away from this place
(x2)

Burned, tattered, bled and scarred (x2)

She says to me, she's to blame for all that's gone wrong
She asks of me, will I love her when she is gone

I just want to take her away from this place
I just want to take her away from this place

I can't wait to see her, away from this place
Her eyes are so much brighter, away from this place

It's all just a state of mind
So thats what they say
I can't seem to stop going down
It's the only way
I can't escape from my fears
So I'm reminded each day
Because my soul is trapped
Under this life of pain
And it's there to stay

She says to me, she's so afraid to be alone
She says to me, she just can't wait to come home

Burned, tattered, bled and scarred (x4)

"Run Down"


Force fed all these inhuman
Lies and and wishes
Concrete walls break
I can't replace
Will not find you
A way to rebuild
A world of failures
A world of hate

Stripped in the past I can feel your grip
I push for the rise
The constant stream of blood and guilt
will force me to watch the stars again

Fractured platforms give way
Chasing ghosts down
(Pushed), beneath the surface
The mind is breached

Stripped in the past I can feel your grip
I push for the rise
The constant stream of blood and guilt
will force me to watch the stars again

Stripped in the past I can feel your grip
I push for the rise
The constant stream of blood and guilt
will force me to watch the stars again

Lay me down (x5)

"Alone"


Time is running out
I'm all alone
I cannot fail today
