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

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”

Reflection: Act X

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

This revelation is the death of ignorance
Tangled in a state of suffocation
Slave to self righteousness
Damnation is on your lips
From sorrow to serenity, the truth is absolution,
From sorrow to serenity, its on your head
This is my last serenade
I feel you as you fall away
This is my last serenade
From yourself you can’t run away
It’s your choice, point the finger
But it’s on your head
Your destination is a choice within yourself
Will you rise or become a slave
To self righteousness
Open up your heart and gaze within

Killswitch Engage, “My Last Serenade”

Reflection: Act IX

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 12:01 am

And it doesn’t matter
how you feel now, anything at all
Seems to be your only way, so vicious
Heavenly apart

When your envy is on a piece of paper
Let me sweetly smile
You’re devouring all the crumbs
I’m leaving caught up in your lies

You’re on any other side

Clawing up my eyes
I’m feeling your arms around me
On the other side
It’s time to go
I’m hearing your voice
without words
On the other side

You’re an any other side
Lacuna Coil, “Unspoken”

Reflection: Act VIII

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 9:37 am

All I see is all
all I see so real
The life
The dream
The rhythm
Feel release as
I let go
All my emotions
All my hopes

Reflection: Act VII

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 11:11 pm


The blood’s on the wall
So you might as well just admit it
And bleach out the stains
Commit to forgetting it
You’re better off empty and blank
Then left with a single pathetic trace of this

I’ll chain you to the truth
For the truth shall set you free
I’ll turn the screws of vengeance
And bury you with honesty
I’ll make all your dreams come to life
Then slay them as quickly as they came

Smother another failure
Lay this to rest

Lamb of God, “Laid to Rest”

Reflection: Act VI

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 12:01 am

You gave me this
Made me give
Your silver grin
Still sticking it in

The longest kiss
Feeling furniture days
Drift madly to you
Pollute my heart, drain

You have broken me
Broken me
All your mental armor drags me down
Nothing hurts like your mouth, mouth, mouth

You gave me this
Made me give
You have soul machine
Broken free
All your mental armor drags me down
We can’t breathe when you come around
All your mental armor drags me down
Nothing hurts like your mouth

Bush, “Mouth”

Reflection: Act V

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 12:47 am

My name spells joy
I can’t remember darkness
Except a dream
You saved my life

Do you wonder what you saw
Floating softly at the niles edge

Wandering eyes
Commitments never can last
It feels so cold
To know our name
I’ve never known you and I never will
What difference does
Indifference make

Do you regret what you saw
Floating softly at the niles edge
Alone
Do you regret
Regret what you did
Running softly
Softly from the niles edge
Alone

VAST, “The Niles Edge”

Reflection: Act IV

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 12:07 am

I painted a picture of a day gone past
An ancient scripture and a house of glass
People looking through the window
Never knowing what they’d find
When they couldn’t see me
I locked the door and left them behind
The sky will tell me I’m not the only one
The sky will tell me I must believe the sun

I shut my eyes to not go blind
Things I can’t see I see in my mind
Now the passing clouds of rain
Have surely passed us by
Poor is the man
That believes his own lie

And the sky will tell me
I’m not the only one
And the sky will tell me
I must believe the sun
The sky will tell me
Long may you run
The sky will tell me
I must believe the sun

If I was wrong judge me by name
I simplify one and the same

Ra, “Sky”

Reflection: Act III

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 12:39 am

Can you see like a child?
Can you see what I want?
I wanna run through your wicked garden
Heard that’s the place to find you
Cause I’m alive
So alive now
I know the darkness blinds you

Can you see without eyes?
Can you speak without lies?
I can drown your sorrows
I’m gonna burn
Burn you to life now
Out of the chains that bind you

Can you see just like a child?
Can you see just what I want?
Can I bring you back to life?
Are you still alive?

Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden down
Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden to the ground

Reflection: Act II

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

A ten ton brick is making me sick
Breaking my bones with the weight of it
Weight would grow with each new soul
Buried fine lies make big black holes

Who am I supposed to be?
Not like you give a fuck about me but
Who am I supposedly
When I’m finally done

But I’m finally done
With the divisions of
My former thorns with who I may have loved
I’m finally done
With the dissension oh
And I don’t mind saying
Don’t mind saying
I’m to blame

Nothing comes from nothing
Must mean something in the end
Justify the means
I need to break you
Need to hate you
Need to take this back but
Taking is like giving
If you’re at the other end
I won’t pretend to know your feelings
I could never break the chain

Hurt, “Ten Ton Brick”

Reflection: Act I

Filed under: Chapter Eight — Mao @ 1:03 am

So familiar and overwhelmingly warm
This one, this form I hold now.
Embracing you, this reality here,
This one, this form I hold now, so
Wide eyed and hopeful.
Wide eyed and hopefully wild.

We barely remember what came before this precious moment,
Choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside…
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone in
This body makes me feel eternal. All this pain is an illusion.

Tool, “Parabol”

Ava Adore: Act VII

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

I remember when all the games began
Remember every little lie and every last goodbye
Promises you broke, words you choked on
And I never walked away,
It’s still a mystery to me

Well I’m so empty
I’m better off without you and you’re better off without me
Well you’re so unclean
I’m better off without you and you’re better off without me

Paint the mirrors black to forget you
I still picture your face and the way you used to taste
Roses in a glass, dead and wilted
To you this all was nothing
Everything to you is nothing

As wicked as you are, you’re beautiful to me
You’re the darkest burning star, you’re my perfect disease

It’s over now…
Five Finger Death Punch, “The Bleeding”

Ava Adore: Act VI

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

Underneath her skin and jewelery
Hidden in her words and eyes
There’s a wall that’s cold and ugly
And she’s scared as hell

Trembling at the thought of feeling
Wide awake and keeping distance
Nothing seems to penetrate her
‘Cause she’s scared as hell

Wide awake and
Keeping distance from my soul
Wide awake and
Keeping distance from my soul

I am frightened too
I am scared like you
I am frightened

Tool, “Cold and Ugly”

Ava Adore: Act V

Filed under: Chapter Seven — Mao @ 12:04 am

Pierce the blinders,
Behold the path that leads before you
Let us forsake, forsake all the things
That lead us, lead us to our demise.

Open your eyes,
See the divine,
Open your eyes and see the…

Destruction of innocence,
Watch it breathe its last.

Open your eyes (Behold the path before you)
See the divine (Forsake our demise)
Open your eyes (Behold, the path before you)
And see the…

Abandon the safety of mindless following.

To the grave we take this oath
To leave this world behind
Hear the words of the voice that lives inside.
