Heaven’s a Lie: Act IX

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 11:15 pm

Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
when I will fall in decay

Something wrong
with every plan of my life
I didn’t really notice that you’ve been here

Dolefully desired
Destiny of a lie

Set me free
your heaven’s a lie
set me free with you love
set me free, yeah

Oh no,
here it is again
I need to know
why did I choose to betray you

Something wrong
with all the plans of my life
I didn’t realize that you’ve been here

Heaven’s a Lie: Act VIII

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 10:43 pm

Answer me, it can’t be so hard
Cry to relieve what’s in your heart
Desolation, grief and agony

Trying to move
down in this grave
Trying to believe in every faith
As another bridge to clarity

Want to stay another way

Take another chance
to find a distant sanity
and turn your pain in truth
Take another chance
to fight a different enemy
and try to free it

Dance with me,
it can’t be so hard
Time to reveal
what’s in your heart
Desolation
grief and agony

Walking through a life decayed
while you’re repeating
your mistakes
There’s another chance
to try to get away
Lacuna Coil, “Daylight Dancer”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act VII

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:09 am

I’m sweating,
and breathing
and staring and thinking
and sinking
deeper.
It’s almost like I’m swimming.

The sun is burning hot again
on the hunter
and the fisherman,
and he’s trying to remember when,
but it makes him dizzy.

Seems like I’ve been here before.
Seems so familiar.
Seems like I’m slipping
into a dream within a dream.

Must be the way you whisper.

Seems like I’ve been here before.
Seems so familiar.
Seems like I’m slipping
into a dream within a dream.
It’s the way you whisper.
It drags me under
and takes me home.
Tool, “Sweat”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act VI

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:00 am

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
Whats a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you

Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one whos left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn
Smashing Pumpkins, “Disarm”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act V

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:00 am

You…
You believed …
You believed in movements none could see.
You believed in me

Broken
Fell at the hands of those movements that I wouldn’t see
Yet it was you who prayed for me.
So what have I done
To be a son to an angel?
What have I done
To be worthy?

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question, but
What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?
“She never told a lie,
… well might have told a lie,
But never lived one.
Didn’t have a life,
Didn’t have a life,
But surely saved one.”
See? I’m alright
Now it’s time for us to let you go
Tool, “Wings for Marie”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act IV

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:00 am

I didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want to know
Best to keep things in the shallow end
Cause I never quite learned how to swim

I just didn’t want to know
Didn’t want, didn’t want,
Didn’t want, didn’t want

Close my eyes just to look at you
Taken by the seamless vision
I close my eyes,
Ignore the smoke,
Ignore the smoke

Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

I don’t want to know
A Perfect Circle, “Blue”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act III

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:02 am

Threw you the obvious
And you flew with it on your back
A name in your recollection
Down among a million same
Difficult enough to feel a little bit
Disappointed and passed over.
When I’ve looked right on through,
see you naked but oblivious
and you don’t see me

but I threw you the obvious,
Just to see if there’s more behind the
Eyes of a fallen angel,
Eyes of a tragedy.
A Perfect Circle, “3 Libras”

Heaven’s a Lie: Act II

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 12:00 am


Where is the gain in all the hell you bring
In the search for something new?
Because the birds won’t sing when their cages stink
So think of something else to say
Because things are changing

Your hands, held tight around
The throat of what it is to live these days
And we choke on the pain feed into our heads
We’re not gonna be here when you get back

I want to write your name into my flesh
I want to be in love with myself again
I want to bring it down
I want to bring it down
I believe that things are changing

For the best
And all the rest into the flood
All of me has to bleed
But part of me has got to be alive
Deepfield, “Into the Flood”

Heaven’s A Lie: Act I

Filed under: Chapter Nine — Mao @ 8:44 am

Clever got me this far
Then tricky got me in
Eye on what I’m after
I don’t need another friend
Smile and drop the cliche
‘Till you think I’m listening
I take just what I came for
Then I’m out the door again

Lie to get what I came for
Lie to get just what I need
Lie to get what I crave
Lie and smile to get what’s mine

Eye on what I’m after
I don’t need another friend
Nod and watch your lips move
If you need me to pretend
Because clever got me this far
Then tricky got me in
I’ll take just what I came for
Then I’m out the door again

Mine, mine, mine
Take what’s mine
Give this to me

A Perfect Circle, “The Package”
