The Great Destroyer: Act VII

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 12:55 am

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out

I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings

Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day

I want to turn you on
I want to turn you

Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

The Great Destroyer: Act VI

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 12:27 am

Here I start to define it
As a sign on my skin
That I just try to wash away
Reminder infected, it’ll be painful to me

Life is so short
Close to the edge of another backdoor
Life is so sure!
…Life will be ready to twist up your world

Here it starts to enlighten
There’s a frame I can’t change
That I just have to watch again
Reminder repressed inside me
It keeps repeating

Life is so short
Close to the edge of another backdoor
Life is so sure!

…Life will be ready to twist up your world
Close to the edge

The Great Destroyer: Act V

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 11:59 am

Their cries are blown away with the wind
How passive can we be before humanity is lost?
Turning our backs on those who need love
We must not rest while healing is needed

Tear down the veil
That bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself
Give your souls to compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

So little time is left
We must be relentless
In our pursuit of those in torment

Can you reject yourself?
Can you feel their agony?
In a world that feeds on disregard
Heal the broken hearted

The Great Destroyer: Act IV

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 12:06 am

I did my time and I want out
So effusive – Fade – It doesn’t cut
The soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning – The sickening
Packaging subversion
Pseudo sacrosanct perversion
Go drill your deserts – Go dig your graves
Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
Sinking in – getting smaller again
I’m Done! It has begun – I’m not the only one!

And the rain will kill us all…
We throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

There are cracks in the road we laid
But where the temple fell
The secrets have gone mad
This is nothing new, but when we killed it all
The hate was all we had
Who needs another mess?
We could start over
Just look me in the eyes and say I’m wrong
Now theres only emptiness
Venomous, Insipid
I think we’re done – I’m not the only one!

The limit’s of the dead…

The Great Destroyer: Act III

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 12:19 am

Delighting minds
with my shadow
Rely on your way to grow
You want to decide
from your cloud
You’re lost in a world
that I have to repair

You want it all
the greatest smile
Who wants to deny forever?
You’re made of ice
I pay the price
for all you unforgiveness

Enlightening lies
with my shame
Beneath the veil
of your flow
Don’t try to deny
with your mouth
So fine it is knowing
you’re under the shade

Lacuna Coil, “Tight Rope”

The Great Destroyer: Act II

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 9:35 am

You wear a cheap disguise
Your only vice until the end
Don’t have an alibi
You never try you just condemn
You pressure everything
You never bring, you take away
I can no longer breathe
You’ve taken me and everything too

Far, to me it’s so disgusting
Wrong, I’ll push myself away
Far, my sanity is rusting
Wrong, I look the other way

This is a war I can’t fight
I can’t let you tear me down
I will ignore all these lies
You will never tear me down

I sit and contemplate
How you sedate what’s in my head
I will not instigate
Or emulate I won’t pretend
You’ll never understand
You just demand to get your way
How all of this began
I never ran and now it’s gone too

Never tear me down
Spineshank, “Tear Me Down”

The Great Destroyer: Act I

Filed under: Chapter Ten — Mao @ 11:05 pm

Watch out you might get what you’re after
Cool baby strange but not a stranger
I’m an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait ’til the party’s over
Hold tight we’re in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here’s your ticket pack your bag; time for jumpin’ overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, baby you know where you are
Fightin’ fire with fire

All wet yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work say baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house S’out of the ordinary
That’s right, don’t want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything’s stuck together
I don’t know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house
Talking Heads, “Burning Down the House”
