"In Her Tomb By The Sounding Sea" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
So I'm thinking we should maybe
Just run away from here
With no plan of coming back.
We can stay away forever
Our anguished love will be all we have and

I will save your life
Its happening again,
Its happening again
I won't watch you die
Its happening again,
Its happening again

I can see its not the first time
You have come and taken her from me
Rest assured it's not the last time,
I'm going to set you free.

You took her once
Shame on you
Oh
You took her twice
Shame on me

Whisper softly
And tell me that you love me
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do
Please forgive me
And know that I am sorry
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do

Trapped inside a memory.
(save you)
I'm falling apart

Do you realize its over
There's no chance of leaving here alive
You don't realize what you're saying,
Without me you can't survive.

You took her once
Shame on you
Oh
You took her twice
Shame on me

Whisper softly
And tell me that you love me
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do
Please forgive me
And know that I am sorry
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do

Trapped inside a memory,
(save you)
Ive lost it all
I'm falling apart

You've ripped out my heart.
(I'm falling apart)
I don't know where to start

I don't want to go
Its happening again,
Its happening again
But I cant let it show
Ill be with her again,
Together to the end
If I have to go
Its happening again,
Its happening again
Ill be damned if I'm alone
Ill be with her again
Together til the end.

Whisper softly
And tell me that you love me
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do
Please forgive me
And know that I am sorry
I'm losing you,
I don't know what to do

Trapped inside a memory,
(save you)
I'm falling apart
I've lost it all

    General Comment""The Artist finds his feet and trudges back out into the sunlit town. He rounds the corner and once again sees Annabel in the reflection of a window. However, this time she does not look angry or sad. She doesn't appear to him as the tortured and pained image he saw in the bar, but rather as the woman he had fallen so in love with during the past seven years. Suddenly, the Thespian appears in the reflection, standing behind Annabel with a knife to her throat. Fear engulfs her entire body as the Thespian slits her throat from ear to ear. The horrific image alerts the Artist of two things equally disturbing and harsh: the memory of Annabel is slowly disappearing from his mind and he must find and kill the man who has taken her from him." -Alesana

    General Comment"without me you can't survive". Is he talking to the evil part in him? Telling himself he cant go on, if he doesn't? He can't take her? Like he killed her? Im lost on this, who else would be taking her from him..

    General CommentActually... it's inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee". "In Her Tomb By The Surrounding Sea" Is even a line from the poem. I suggest you look it up :] beautiful poem, and it is perfectly parallel to the song. Especially if you know of Poe's tragic life.

    General CommentMono is right, it was INSPIRED by the poem, but it is not about the poem. Alesana wrote their story and gave credit to the poem, but the poem really doesn't have much to do with the story except for that part.
