the last thing i wanna do right now is read your stupid poetry
why cant you just tell me what you really wanna say?
you'd clear your conscience with words so weak and empty
but something in your eyes gave you away
and i've been lonely like a silhouette or a serenade
a heart attack or a man betrayed
the arms of love are holding me like a silhouette or a serenade
is this all you have to say this broken boy would hang on every word
you tell me that you need me while i slowly fall apart
you'd heal your heart ache with words so cool and callous
but the absence of your tears gave you away
and i've been lonely like a silhouette or a serenade
a heart attack or a man betrayed
the arms of love are holding me like a silhouette or a serenade
and all pretty poems have to end
so i say this before i leave
if words are your weapons my dear i surrender, surrender
and i've been lonely like a silhouette or a serenade
a heart attack or a man betrayed
the arms of love are holding me to you

    General CommentThe lyrics are a bit to emo for VR, but its okay since they are such an awesome band! i liked the whole point of the song, it made me think about some of the relationships that ive been in. "all pretty poems have to end"

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite Vendetta Red song. I bougt the cd the day my first love and i split. So this song holds meaning to me. Plus ut has nothing to do with death so It's different for them.

    General Commentthis song has special meaning to me
    whenever i hear it i think of:
    this guy.. that i really want to be with but he's too worried about our friend who has a crush on me. we have to keep everything hidden and it's terrible.. we are all over each other and he's telling me he loves me but he doesn't want to be a bad friend. too late. i can tell that he feels bad, and has a heavy heart for doing this to me.. so he makes up all these weak reasons but i can tell that he means none of it and he really wants what i do.
    the only reason i'm not just being like 'fuck this' is because i'm actually in love with the boy.. it's been forever since this started.. when he says ' tell me that you need me while i slowly fall apart ' i feel that way when this guy tells me he loves me.. and then asks that it be a secret.. i'm like damn.. you say all this but it's killing me.. and he talks about healing the heartache that to me is me telling him that .. when i hear him talk to zack about how he doesn't have feelings for me but there's zero emotion in it.. it's pretty much a conditioned response from him.. it's obvious to everyone except for zack that he wants to be with me but i believe that is just because zack only sees what he wants..

    General CommentMy #3 song of all time. this song is so complete, it is wanting for nothing but to be listened to again and again. This was the 1st vendetta red song and i head it like 3 years ago right when it came out but i never checked the band out until about 8 months ago. it's a shame they broke up after such a momentous album as was Sisters... If i had only one album to choose to be the album to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be Sisters of the Red Death. And I don't even consider them my fav. band, that ought to tell you something. Seriously, if you haven't checked out the rest of the album, I highly recommend that you do so immediately.
