"A Lunatic's Lament" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
If only you could see
If only you could see
You're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
If only you could see
If only you could see

Should I apologize to such pathetic eyes
Just the sight of you has made me sick tonight (tonight)
It was your poison kiss that turned me into this
Then again there is a chance you could be mine tonight

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
(Are you satisfied?)

What fate has led me here
Oh please forgive me dear
I don't know if I could survive on my own (my own)
I could have married you instead I buried you
Now I will see if I can fall asleep alone (alone)

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
The nightmares coming true
(Are you satisfied?)
It was all for you
(Are you satisfied?)
I did it all for you
(Are you satisfied?)

I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

The depths of a mans soul can not be measured in a manor of meters and fathoms but rather, it is in my opinion, only quantified by his proximity to heaven and hell
It was in such a state I ushered myself
Passed the town tavern, bursting at the seams with the sounds laughter
And drunken piano playing
Had it only been a different night, a
Different place, a different kind of man passing by the threshold
Of that innocent pub, the events that transpired at that point
Would have undoubtedly been drastically different
I can only guess if
Anyone outside that place had a clue when those exclamations of mirth became the
Desperate screams of the helpless begging for their very lives

    General Comment"In an abashed state of mind, the Artist begins to blame Annabel for what he has obviously done to her: his depression and paranoia have turned to rage. He moves as quickly as his feet will carry him toward the center of town. Not only is he running from the grisly murder scene, but he's running from the ringing of Annabel's voice in his head. It's as if her spirit is chasing him, torturing what little sanity he has left. He cannot look her in the eyes, he knows it will weaken his anger and he simply cannot allow that to happen. Not now. The Artist begs and pleads with her to leave him be as he sprints toward the town, his intentions still unknown even in his own mind. There's one crippling thought that the Artist cannot seem to escape even in madness: Annabel is the only girl he has ever loved." -Alesana

    My OpinionI'm not usually a fan of... "emotional" alternative rock, but I have to say that since my friend recommended this and lent me the CD, I have to say I'm a fan. I never thought this genre would be so insightful. Meaningful maybe, but not insightful. I've been proven wrong by this album. Even the screaming is made tolerable by pleasant melodies.
