Paradox
Alesana Lyrics


Dearest love, I hope this finds you well
I am kidding this is probably hell
Lonely stranger with a brush in hand
Never saw me sneaking up on him
Tonight say goodbye to what you thought you knew
They'll blame the blood spilled on you
I'm closing my eyes, one more kiss before I never wake again

Two moves ahead of you
You are a pawn
Castle now but I'm behind your king
As your queen lays bleeding on the board
Accept you have lost the game, misjudged your enemy

Unleash the myth living in your worst fears
I'm trapped, don't wait

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot to write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride, we sit and watch the world's collide
The story is ending

Would you remember Joan of Arc was her flesh yet unlicked by flame
Will you remember how the waves crash on the shores of time
Who would've ever known that each choice made sense
Who could've ever known
Are we not our actions
Our lives are poetry, make them sonnets

Unleash the myth living in your worst fears
I'm trapped, don't wait

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot to write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride, we sit and watch the world's collide
The story is ending

Why do the floorboards creak like a heartbeat
This room is driving me insane
What's behind the bricks
Who's rapping at my chamber door
Pendulum, why do you torment me
What am I saying, have I lost my mind

I am her

No longer Fatima, goddess, light
I've become Rusalka, demon of night

Two moves ahead of you
You are a pawn
Castle now but I'm behind your king
As your queen lays bleeding on the board
Accept you have lost the game, misjudged your enemy

Don't wait

Page abandoned, the stories write themselves
The author lost his way again and he forgot to write the end
Race towards the sun, seeing who comes undone
The villainess, the broken bride, we sit and watch the world's collide
Page abandoned, time is ending
The story is ending, make them sonnets
We sit and watch the world's collide

The night that I died I had become Rusalka.
I was no longer me. I was no longer Annabel
The beautiful evil coursed through my veins
And I saw so clearly what needed to be done
As you lay, fast asleep, I penned her farewell
And kissed your cheek. The knife felt so light in my hand
So heavy in my stomach. There is something about this room

The song title actual spoils what the story turns out to be: it's all just a paradox.

Living Ghost

I got a nerdgasm when I first heard the opening lyrics, a good throwback to the last three letters. They even referenced the thespian and fatima rusalka too.

darklaouve

Living Ghost cuz its relatable. its about a story.. but i still clued with the story.

Levon777614

I honestly think we would all love an acoustic version of this one.

jos florida

@The Legacy Of Kaizer totally could

The Legacy Of Kaizer

I wouldn't... like in what possible way could they make an acoustic as good as the breakdown in this. Also you said this twice lol.

Shawn Marshall

I just found this band today and they are fucking awesome

Shawn Marshall

the emptiness- inspirado en annabel lee, ultimo poema escrito por edgar allan poe, antes de morir
porque las tablas del suelo crujen como un latido? esta habitacion me esta volviendo loca.-corazon delator(edgar allan poe)
 que hay detras de los ladrillos?- el gato negro(edgar allan poe)
 quien esta golpeando mi puerta?-el cuervo (edgar allan poe)
nadie se dio cuenta? al igual que la referencia en la ultima cancion "cartharsis" , lo primero que dice es "corazon delator"
