I HATE YOU!
those words go round and round my head.
This isn't real... This isn't real.
I can't be dead... I can't be dead.
Look around as the sun goes down
and it all comes back to that fateful moment
your lips, your eyes, your skin, it tries
to draw me into your lifeless world.

Please help me,
I'm Yearning.
I want you to tell me it's alright.
Please save me,
Im burning
for the taste of eternity

And all these promises,
false hopes and loneliness.
i hate you.
for what you've done to me.
You've killed me.

Your eyes burn all ties as i lay here so full of emptiness.
Red tears run down my chin as i reach for the kill and my teeth sink in.
the pain, the rush, a kill, to touch,
What has become of me?

Please help me,
I'm Yearning.
I want you to tell me it's alright.
Please save me,
Im burning
for the taste of eternity

And all these promises,
false hopes and loneliness.
i hate you.
for what you've done to me.
You've killed me.

And i'll walk alone
for the rest of my life to show
i can live without you
tonight, you die,
and i, will fly,
away.

And all these promises,
false hopes and loneliness.
i hate you.
for what you've done to me.
You've killed me.

    General CommentI think that someone close to him did something really harsh or nasty and he wants to hate them, probably someone he loves, cause he can't hate them and he's yearning for them to tell him it's all right that it was an accident and all. and he's sought for revenge and hates whats he's done "what has become of me?"

    General Commenti think it's about the aftermath of a break up. the guy got burned and even though he probably still has feelings for the girl he makes himself hate her for what she's done to him and tries to ignore her and forget about her to prove that he she doesn't mean anything to him anymore and he can live without her even though it's killing him inside.

    General Commentas soon as i read te lyrics of this song i was sure i knew what it was about... now, tell me if im wrong, but:

    If you've ever readt the vampire chronicles by anne rice, you'll know exactly where im comig from ladies and gents.

    I can't be dead... I can't be dead.
    Look around as the sun goes down
    and it all comes back to that fateful moment
    your lips, your eyes, your skin, it tries
    to draw me into your lifeless world.

    - vampires are dead. i think this guy is being/has been/is going to be turned into a vampire; hence the lifeles world part. vampires can also only rise when the sun goes down.

    i'm burning for a taste of eternity- vampires live forever.

    ahh i cbf, but read queen of the damned and the rest of those books by anne rice then read these lyrics. its spot on.

    xx thanks for reading

    General CommentI agree i think this song is vampiric...
    I L.O.V.E VAMPIRES...
    and all these lyrics makes sense to vampires...
    "look around as the sun goes down"
    and i think some women seduced this dude and turned him into a vampire the first verse says it all...
