Intro Solo

(Spoken)
I am the dead one.
Among all of the living
With a sin thats never forgiven.
And a song thats never sang.


Verse:
Do you remember what you said to me ?
How you'd never be that maiden dressed in white.
Perfectly prepared, to end your life tonight.

I could never stand the pain.
Of letting go of a new born love.
Where questions only lead,
To the breeding of more questions.
And answers only bring about,
An ungodly amount of regret.

I knew it was too late.
When I heard a cry from across the world.
Answered only by the fall of sanity.
As she took her life in vein.


Chorus:
Do you have any idea what you done?
This wont solve anything.
Your battle has just begun.

I really hope,
That you dont find anything up there.
Afterall I thought I did good,
I was always ready to care.

But today I wont stand up.
I'll let them bury you alive.
You killed yourself today,
But its me thats dead inside.

Verse: Is it me that was destined,
To find my maiden lying here.
With so many words to say to her,
That she will never really hear.

Truth be told,
She was never really young.
Her heart was bold.
So we'll bury you today.
And forget about you now.
You've left me with nothing.
And thats just what you'll receive.


Chorus : Do you have any idea what you done?
This wont solve anything.
Your battle has just begun.

I was the soldier,
That fought for your health.
But when you gave up your life.
I lost that drive to fight.
I lost that love I had,
For my maiden dressed in white.

But today I wont stand up.
I'll let them bury you alive.
You killed yourself today,
But its me thats dead inside.


Verse:

I attendedyour wake.
Awakened by the reality.
That you werent there.
Are these the words I was meant to share?

I'll never really know.
Just how you felt.
You missed so many loved ones.
I wanted to be your loved one.

I miss my maiden.


My shining star in the darkest night.
Perfected by her pain.
Covered in a ghostly white.

But when I look at that sky,
Your star is never there.
Its lost in this confusion.
Tell me,
Who am I to care ?


Chorus : Do you have any idea what you done?
This wont solve anything.
Your battle has just begun.

I was the soldier,
That fought for your health.
But when you gave up your life.
I lost that drive to fight.
I lost that love I had,
For my maiden dressed in white.

But today I wont stand up.
I'll let them bury you alive.
You killed yourself today,


But its me thats dead inside.
