Heavy Hangs The Albatross - Alesana

I've made up my mind and I will be leaving
Leaving this cruel, dark world for the soulless to share
But first

Women will shriek and watch their husbands bleed
Children will cry and watch their mothers die
Because tonight...
Tonight we all go to hell
Why?

I have to let go of what happened to my love
I am taking out on everyone else all the problems I've brought on myself
When I made your heart melt
My belle, we soon will meet again

There's nothing left for me to lose, except confusion
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away
There's no one left to talk me down
My feet are slipping...

One day I hope my name doesn't bring back memories
Of the day that I left her
Goodbye, so long
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever...

Now the only question left is how to take you all down with me
The coroner will have his hands full tonight
That is if he is not among the dead

Dead will choke the streets with such vulgarity that grown men will weep
And then you will find the end is drawing night

There's nothing left for me to lose except confusion
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away
There's no one left to talk me down
My feet are slipping...

One day I hope my name doesn't bring back memories
Of the day that I left her
Goodbye, so long
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever...

The dizziness stuns me, would someone please distract me?
Can I really get through this?
Can I really betray myself?
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever.

There's sweat on my hands and a knife at my throat
And as the blade bites my skin Annabel appears...

One day I hope my name doesn't bring back memories
Of the day that I left her
Goodbye, so long
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever...
