Song Lyrics Type O Negative

Type O Negative – I Don’t Wanna Be Me

Type O Negative was an American gothic metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1989, by Peter Steele (lead vocals, bass), Kenny Hickey (guitar, co-lead vocals), Josh Silver (keyboards, backing vocals), and Sal Abruscato (drums, percussion), who was later replaced by Johnny Kelly. Their emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname “the Drab Four” (in homage to the Beatles’ “Fab Four” moniker). On April 14, 2010, at the age of 48, Steele died resulting in the bands breakup.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

Ever throwing at his home
Two glass houses, twenty stones
Fourteen yellow, six are blue
Could it be worse? … Quite doubtful.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

Two steps forward, three steps back
Without warning, heart attack
He fell asleep in the snow
Never woke up, died alone

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

Please don’t dress in black
When you’re at his wake
Don’t go there to mourn
But to celebrate

Please don’t dress in black
When you’re at his wake
Don’t go there to mourn
But to celebrate

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

1-2
1-2-3-4.

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be me
I don’t wanna be me, anymore

Song Lyrics The Electric Hellfire Club

The Electric Hellfire Club – Hypochristian

The Electric Hellfire Club is an American industrial metal band mixing elements of glam metal, techno, gothic rock, and psychedelia, since 1991.

You think you know what the future holds
You think you have control of your immortal soul
Well you believe what you wanna believe
You can deceive but you can’t fool me, no

Hypochristian, damned to salvation
Lost in a labyrinth of your own creation
You’re a self- deceiver
Weak and useless
Lying your way through a thousand excuses

When you finally die, tell me where will you go?
To the pie in the sky or the fires below?
Will you qualify for the kingdom above with
No joy in your heart?
No understanding of love?

Pick and choose believer, the worst of your kind
Never know which way you’re going cuz you’re
Fucked in the mind…betray your friends then
You cry about the loss
You two-faced motherfucker
Gonna show you who’s boss!

Hypochristian, damned to salvation
Lost in a labyrinth of your own creation
You’re a liar in waiting
Without any answers
Rotting on the inside from a spiritual cancer
Hypochristian, you’re a false witness
Infecting the world with Jehovah’s sickness
Chosen by “God”, an assembly of liars
If there is a Hell you will burn in its fires

Hypochristian, damned to salvation
Lost in a labyrinth of your own creation
Peddler of poison and moral dysfunction
Preaching your gospel of self-destruction

Hypochristian, pray for salvation
No escape from your situation
You’re a blind-believer, a self-deceiver
Liar in waiting…damned to salvation

Electric Hellfire Club performing One Dark Horse and Hypochristian at their 25th anniversary show at the Orpheum Theatre, Ybor City FL 12/2/16

Disturbed Song Lyrics

Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence

Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, formed in 1994.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night and touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared
And no one dared disturb the sound of silence

“Fools”, said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls and whispered in the sound of silence”

Seven Spires Song Lyrics

Seven Spires – The Cabaret Of Dreams

Seven Spires is a symphonic metal band from Boston, United States, active since 2013.

Welcome to a state of dreams
Where everything’s as real as you let it be
I will be your host this eve
So sit back, relax and I guarantee

If you take it, embrace it, succumb to the dark
Escape into a night where no one knows who you are
You crave it, awake it, the coeur bizarre
Lose yourself to the twisted art

Hey! Don’t be afraid
Hey! You’ll be amazed
Let your demons out
Let your spirit free
It’s only gonna cost you your soul
The Cabaret of Dreams

Now we’re in a waking dream
Subconscious reality
Monsieur have a drink and see
The dancers dance and the singers sing

If you take it, embrace it, succumb to the dark
Escape into a night where no one knows who you are
You crave it, awake it, the coeur bizarre
Lose yourself to the twisted art

Hey! Don’t be afraid
Hey! You’ll be amazed
Let your demons out
Let your spirit free
It’s only gonna cost you your soul
The Cabaret of Dreams
Hey! Don’t be afraid
Hey! You’ll be amazed
Let your sanity go, it ain’t yours to keep
It’s only gonna cost you your soul
The Cabaret of Dreams

Damned is he who walks with these disenchanted souls
Damned are those lost and pitiless
Our freedom lies in the conflagrant morn
Bereft of hope, there is no escape

Seek out the light
Save us all
Or fall prey
Hear our cry
Save us all

Hey! Don’t be afraid
Hey! You’ll be amazed
You’ll be back for more if you ever leave
It’s only gonna cost you your soul
The Cabaret of Dreams

A Perfect Circle Song Lyrics

A Perfect Circle – Disillusioned

A Perfect Circle is an American rock supergroup formed in 1999 by guitarist Billy Howerdel and Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan.

(Dopamine, on dopamine…)

We have been overrun
By our animal
Desire
Addicts of the immediate
Keep us obedient
And unaware
Feeding this mutation
This Pavlovian
Despair

We’ve become
Disillusioned
So we run
Towards anything
Glimmering

Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around
Find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique
Voice among the many
In this choir
Tuning
Into each other
Lift all higher

(Dopamine, on dopamine…)

Willingly been re-wired
By clever agents
Within
Looping our reflections
Our obsessions
Draw us in
Fix and fixation
No sentience
Beyond

We’ve become
Disillusioned
So we dive
Like crows
Towards anything
Glittering

Time to put the silicon obsession down
Take a look around
Find a way in the silence
Lie supine away with your back to the ground
Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
You were never an island

Unique
Voice among the many
In this choir
Tuning
Into each other
Lift all higher
