Lyrics

Love In Darkness

Written By: Music and Lyrics: Mayelin

Verse 1:
In a world so full of darkness,
Only love keeps me alive,
Although you can't see,
But I keep it inside,
What is in your heart,
That you are trying to hide,
It's a feeling of love
That you no longer hide.

Chorus:
Love In Darkness,
It's where we live,
What you don't want to see,
Is right in front of your eyes.

Verse 2:
Love is hiding,
In the dark,
Because the world,
Left it behind,
It's a feeling,
Trying to come out,
It never gets the chance,
To see the light.

(Repeat Chorus)

Outro:
In a world so full of Darkness,
Only love keeps me alive,
In a world so full of Darkness,
Only love keeps me alive.

My Enemy's Blood

Written By: Music and Lyrics: Mayelin

Verse 1:
Slaughter,
In the name of God,
Desicration,
Upon the earth,
Chaos,
Comes with disorder,
Hate,
Is uncontrolable.

Bride:
When I look upon the world,
The people make me sick,
With the evil I feel inside,
I will bring them death.

Chorus:
Slaughter,
Fire,
Torture,
To those who destroy life.

Verse 2:
Empty,
Is how I feel,
Insanity,
Allows me to steal,
Murder,
Is what I want,
Spilling,
My enemy's blood.

Bridge:
When I look upon the earth,
The people make me sick,
With the evil I feel inside,
I will bring them death.

(Repeat Chorus)

Outro:
Murder,
Is what I want,
Spilling,
My enemy's blood.

Coming Out

Written By: Music and Lyrics: Mayelin

Verse 1:
I feel sick,
I cannot breath,
The pain kills my heart inside of me,
If I die,
How would it be,
Would anyone give a damn for me.

Chorus:
My skin is shedding,
To show the real me,
If you look inside my soul,
You would never stop screaming.

Verse 2:
I just wish,
This isn't real,
That there is a better world,
I have lost control,
Of my faith,
To end this earth would be a great escape.

(Repeat Chorus)

Outro:
Cut me open,
See what it means to die.
