ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE THESE WALLS

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE THESE WALLS

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE THESE WALLS

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE THESE WALLS


RELEASE ME, RELEASE ME


ILLUMINATE, ILLUMINATE

ARACHNOPHOBIA

I WATCHED A SPIDER

SPIN ITS WEB

UNABLE TO TELL THE BEGINNING

FROM THE END

I LET MYSELF

WALK RIGHT INTO THE HEART

BUT NOW THIS BODY'S

TORN APART


I LET THIS BODY BE TORN APART


I SAT ON THE EDGE

OF MY DREAM

CONFRONTED WITH

THIS STATE OF ECSTASY

I TASTED DESIRE

BUT WOKE TO DISAPPOINTMENT

AND IN THAT MOMENT I WAS FROZEN

WITH THE POSSIBILITY

THAT NOTHING'S HOW IT SEEMS


I LET MYSELF

WALK RIGHT INTO THE HEART

BUT NOW THIS BODY'S TORN APART


I LET THIS BODY BE TORN APART

I LET THIS BODY BE TORN APART


CAN YOU TELL ME

IF THIS SPIRIT CAN BE SAVED

OR WILL I CHASE THE SECOND HAND

IN THIS REALITY THAT I CAN'T ESCAPE

AND IN THAT MOMENT I WAS FROZEN

TRAPPED INSIDE THIS WEB

OF MY IMAGINATION

AND IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE I LOSE ME, MYSELF OR I


I WATCHED A SPIDER

SPIN ITS WEB

UNABLE TO TELL THE BEGINNING

FROM THE END

I LET MYSELF

WALK RIGHT INTO THE HEART

AND NOW THIS BODY'S

TORN APART

TORN APART

THIS BODY'S TORN APART


I LET THIS BODY BE

I LET THIS BODY BE

I LET THIS BODY BE TORN APART

ILLUMINATE

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SCARED

OF IMPERFECTION

HELD MY BREATH WITH

THE FEAR OF REJECTION

I BUILT MYSELF UPON

CORRUPTED FOUNDATIONS

MISGUIDED NOTIONS

OF SELF PRESERVATION

 

ILLUMINATE

THE FEARS I'M TOO AFRAID

TO CALL MY OWN

ILLUMINATE

REPLACE THIS HATE

TAKE ME, TAKE ME BACK HOME

 

I'VE ALWAYS RUN FROM

MY OWN REFLECTION

HELD MY BREATH WITH

THE HOPE OF PERFECTION

I BUILT MYSELF UPON

FRACTURED PERCEPTIONS

MISGUIDED NOTIONS

OF THIS DISCONNECTION

 

ILLUMINATE

THE FEARS I'M TOO AFRAID

TO CALL MY OWN

ILLUMINATE

REPLACE THIS HATE

TAKE ME, TAKE ME BACK HOME

 

I FEEL IT IN MY BONES

IT'S TAKING OVER

LOSING CONTROL

EMBRACING CHAOS

I LET IT ALL GO

I LET IT ALL GO

 

ILLUMINATE

THE FEARS I'M TOO AFRAID

TO CALL MY OWN

ILLUMINATE

REPLACE THIS HATE

TAKE ME, TAKE ME BACK HOME

MIDNIGHT

HOW DO YOU STOP A FIRE

WHEN YOUR THE SOURCE OF ITS FLAME

IT’S IN YOU BLOOD

IT’S PULSING IN YOUR VEINS

THERE’S A CURE FOR THIS DISEASE

A LIGHT TO GUIDE THE WAY

BUT GLORY PAID TO ASHES

COMES TOO LATE

 

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

 

BUT IT’S IN MY BLOOD

THE ESSENCE OF A THOUSAND SUNS

AND I’VE GOT TO REMEMBER

THAT WHEN NOTHING REMAINS

WE BECOME THE LIGHT

OF A NEW DAY

 

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

 

BUT IT’S IN MY BLOOD

THE ESSENCE OF A THOUSAND SUNS

AND I’VE GOT TO REMEMBER

I’VE GOT TO REMEMBER

 

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

 

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

WE BURN

LET’S SET THIS WORLD AFLAME

SO WE CAN START AGAIN

THE FARTHEST SHORE

SHOW ME THE WAY

 

I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN

I EMBRACED THE WAVES

BUT DID THEY SWALLOW ME UP

DID I CLIMB IN VAIN

 

NOW HERE I STAND, SO AFRAID

HANGING IN THE BALANCE

OF ALL I’VE TAMED

 

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

THE STRENGTH TO SAY

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SAY

MY TRUE NAME

THEY SAY A TREE CAN ONLY REACH HEAVEN

IF IT’S ROOTS ARE PLANTED IN HELL

I FEAR I SACRIFICED TOO MUCH

BUT HOW COULD I EVER TELL

 

NOW HERE I STAND, SO AFRAID

HANGING IN THE BALANCE

OF ALL I’VE TAMED

 

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

THE STRENGTH TO SAY

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SAY

MY TRUE NAME

 

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

GIVE ME, GIVE ME, GIVE ME

GIVE ME

 

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

THE STRENGTH TO SAY

SHOW ME THE WAY

SHOW ME THE WAY

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SAY

MY TRUE NAME

 

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SAY

MY TRUE NAME

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH

GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SAY

MY TRUE NAME

ME, MYSELF AND I

I DECLARED WAR

AGAINST MYSELF, MY ONLY FRIEND

CLAIMING THOUGHTS AS TERRITORY

WILL WE FIGHT TILL THE END OF TIME

‘CAUSE THERE’S NO WAY I CAN SURVIVE

THESE NIGHTS, SO ALONE

WITH NOTHING BUT YOUR VOICE

 

INSIDE THESE WALLS

I’LL LET MYSELF DIE JUST TO FEEL ALIVE

 

ALL I HEAR IS YOUR VOICE

WHISPERING SWEET POISON

IN MY EAR, IN MY EAR

AND IT SOUNDS SO FAMILIAR

I COULD SWEAR IT WAS ME

IS IT ME

 

SEE I DECLARED WAR

AGAINST MYSELF, MY ONLY FRIEND

BUT WHO’S THIS ENEMY

THAT’S DECIEVED THESE EYES

FORCED ME TO FIGHT TILL THE END OF TIME

WAGERING MY LIFE I WILL TAKE THIS BREATH

AS A BITTER SWEETNESS

 

HEARING YOUR VOICE

WHISPERING SWEET POISON

IN MY EARS

I’LL HIDE BEHIND THIS DISGUISE

TOO AFRAID

I WILL TEAR OUT MY EYES

SO I DON’T SEE MYSELF

 

INSIDE THESE WALLS

INSIDE THESE WALLS

I WILL LET MYSELF DIE

 

HOW MANY TIMES

MUST I WALK THE SAME ROAD

BEFORE I LEARN TO

CHOOSE THE PATH

THAT’S SO UNKNOWN TO ME

HOW MANY TIMES

WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I SEE

WHAT’S BEHIND THE MASK

BEHIND THE MASK

 

BEHIND THE MASK THAT I DESIGNED

I CANNOT RECOGNISE

AM I MY ONLY FRIEND OR THE ENEMY

THAT’S DECIEVED THESE EYES

 

INSIDE THESE WALLS

INSIDE THESE WALLS

I LET MY SELF DIE

I WANNA FEEL ALIVE

I WANNA FEEL ALIVE

SYMBIOSIS

RELEASE ME

 

IT’S NO SURPRISE

I’M PARALYSED

BY THIS PARASITE

AND I CAN’T DENY

THAT FEAR HAS CLOUDED

THESE EYES

 

I’M PARALYSED

 

RELEASE ME, RELEASE ME

I’M GOING UNDER

I’LL REST ASUNDER

UNTIL YOU RELEASE ME

 

AM I

AM I THE HOST OR

THE ONE THAT FEEDS

I’M BEGGING ON MY KNEES

SOMEONE ANSWER ME

FEAR’S CLOUDED THESE EYES

AND I CAN’T DENY

I’M FORGETTING MY NAME

AS YOU FEAST INSIDE

YOU FEAST INSIDE

I’M LOSING MY DEPENDENCY

I DIDN’T REALISE

I DIDN’T REALISE

I’M PARALYSED

 

RELEASE ME, RELEASE ME

I’M GOING UNDER

I’LL REST ASUNDER

UNTIL YOU RELEASE ME

 

I’M HYPNOTISED

DROWNING UNDERNEATH

ALL OF THESE LIES

AND I CAN’T DENY

THAT PART OF ME’S IN LOVE

WITH THIS PARASITE

 

RELEASE ME, RELEASE ME

I’M GOING UNDER

I’LL REST ASUNDER

UNTIL YOU RELEASE ME

RELEASE ME, RELEASE ME

I’M GOING UNDER

I’LL REST ASUNDER

UNTIL YOU RELEASE ME

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE

THESE WALLS

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS

RELEASE ME FROM INSIDE

THESE WALLS

ILLUMINATE THESE FEARS
