Love And Death - Perfectly Preserved

Artist: Love And Death
Release: Perfectly Preserved


1. Infamy

Over horizon lines I see you
Frozen in time
Echoes of a dream
I am beginning to understand you
Moments too far between
The silence of nothing

Perfectly preserved
Follow you to the unknown
To infinity
Find you at your worst
Show me where you die alone
To live in infamy

2. Tragedy

I am only human
Can’t face this wounded heart
I stand here still unwoven
Held together yet falling apart

I’ve been running from the light
Feels like I’ve been

Searching for a thousand years
Inside of me
It’s nothing but broken
Return for more
Just to feed my tragedy
What have I won
What have I done

I breathe but slipping under
Self control never went far
Still haunted and left to wonder
And reopen forgotten scars

Too late for goodbyes
You promised me rapture

Tragedy
You’ll never get inside
You’ll never get inside

Feed me
Tragedy

3. Down

I have seen the slow disaster
Wreckage of my life
Silence before and nothing after
Echoing inside I confess

I lied for this
I died for this

Down down
Buried beneath
I feel like I’m running out of time
Running out of time
Down down
Make me believe
I want you to show me I’m alive
Show me I’m alive

I am just a sole survivor
Of self inflicted wounds
Shadows hide the dying embers
Burning out too soon

Show me
Show me
Down
Buried

4. Let Me Love You (ft. Lacey Sturm)

I used to believe
We were burnin’ on the edge of somethin’ beautiful
Somethin’ beautiful
Sellin’ a dream
Smoke and mirrors keep us waitin’ on a miracle
On a miracle

Say, go through the darkest of days
Heaven’s a heartbreak away
Never let you go, never let me down
Oh, it’s been a hell of a ride
Driving the edge of a knife
Never let you go, never let me down

Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you
Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you
(Oh, baby, baby)

Don’t fall asleep
At the wheel, we’ve got a million miles ahead of us
Miles ahead of us
All that we need
Is a rude awakening to know we’re good enough (yeah)
Know we’re good enough

Say, go through the darkest of days
Heaven’s a heartbreak away
Never let you go, never let me down
Oh, it’s been a hell of a ride
Driving the edge of a knife
Never let you go, never let me down

Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you
Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you
(Oh, baby, baby)

whoa
(Never let you go) ooh
(Never let you go)
(Never let you go-go)
(Never let you go)
Oh, no, no-no, no
(Never let you go)
Yeah, yeah

Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you
Don’t you give up, nah, nah, nah
I won’t give up, nah, nah, nah
Let me love you
Let me love you

5. Death Of Us

Cradling
My curse I’ve lost everything
Your words they keep stalking me
Without you it’s hard to see
The need to move on

Wish I could live in your memory
Finding the fatal flaws
Looks as though they were meant for me
No affect without a cause

Running on borrowed time
There’s nothing left of us
But betrayal
Looking for a sign
To guide the rest of us
The death of us

The way to find
That piece of my heart
You can take me in
No consolation prize
Why did you feed the fire
Don’t have to look far to find me

I hate you
I miss you
I can’t believe
I hate that I lost you
My everything
I wish that I could bring you back to me
Somehow I guess I gotta
Move on

Do I deserve any sympathy
Concerning your lack of applause
Was it all fate was it meant for us
No affect without a cause

Let me go let me go
I can’t live another day
Let me go let me go
I can’t live another day
With you
Trust you, no
Time to go
Let me go
Let me go
I can’t live another day
With you

6. Slow Fire

Why won’t you just let me go
I was always last to know
Of your empire
More than just existing unknown
Chemicals are twisting me low
Through slow fire

I won’t let you do this to me
I can’t let you see me like this

Whatever remains
It crumbles on you
Whatever remains a wounded heart
I can’t recall
One thing before you
I can’t recall this useless fight

Starving for an ounce of control
Poison slowly taking its hold
Of your desire
Brandish every scar in my soul
Careless always letting it go
As it expires

Through slow fire
I am done
Never again
No never again

7. The Hunter (ft. Keith Wallen)

Needing like a child
Without a mother
We see the same shades
But different colors
Behind the fallen prey
Lies the hunter
Take away the pain
We’re hiding under

But they told another lie
And they told another lie

Have we lost our own identity somehow
Have we fallen off the edge
And all the way down
Again
Are we out of miracles now
Why are we waiting
For something to change
Make your escape
Escape

I don’t believe
The hardest part is over
We’ve always been alone
Without each other
You were here and closer
Than a brother
We have found comfort
In the cover

Sanity, identity
Is lost again from reality
Sanity, identity
Was taken away from society
Sanity, identity
Was lost again from reality
Sanity, identity
Was taken away from society

8. Lo Lamento

Promises that I made
You should ignore
The future that I’ve painted
I can’t afford
I know that it seems
That I left you no choice
I fell down on my knees
And I begged your forgiveness

Consequences of a lie
Failed redemption though I tried
Maybe someday I’ll get it right

So I’m sorry to say
I didn’t want it all
Sorry to wake you
I didn’t need it all
I never wanted it to hurt

These animal instincts
Rot me to the core
These impulses raging
I can’t stop no more
I worry that you
Just don’t love me the same
I fell down on my knees
And I begged your forgiveness

I’m lost

Sorry to say
Sorry to say
Sorry to falsify myself every way
Sorry to say
Sorry to say
Sorry to falsify myself every day

9. Affliction

On my own
Sinking in the ocean
My new home
Drowning in emotion

Living the dream
Living the lie
Living it up in the nightmare
Falling in love
Falling apart
Sweeping the pieces of my broken heart

Got my own life
It’s my addiction
In my own time
It’s my affliction

Have my heart
See inside the chambers
Lovely dark
And dangerous

Falling further down
Into my nightmare
Fighting for control
I’m getting nowhere

10. White Flag (ft. Ryan Hayes)

Shaken shaken
I will leave you shaken
Crawling crawling
I will watch you crawl
Lack of vision
Stuck inside your lack of vision
But you don’t listen
Let you
I will let you
Obey your master now
I will let you
Feed you
I will feed you
I will feed you who I am
I will feed you

Won’t you go and try me
I won’t hesitate

Tell me I don’t have an answer
Tell me I can’t find the way out
Tell me I’m not willing to die for this
And do it again do it again do it
Tell me I can’t destroy your empire
Tell me I won’t fuel the fire
Tell me I won’t burn the white flag
Burn it again burn it again burn it

Begging
I will watch you
As you beg and plead
Fallen
They won’t help you
As you fall
Let you
I will let you
Obey your master now
I will let you

Everything’s broken
Everything’s vacant
Tomorrow’s uncertain
So why am I waiting

Believe me when I say
That I was born for this
Give it up all for this
Nothing in the world could stand
Like I stand for this
Stay strong to the end of this
And I know
You’re scared of this
Take the fear and the power and conquer it
We’ll never raise the white flag
