"Carry On Screaming" as written by and Sean Brennan....
I've knelt at your alter
I've cut out my heart
I've lived in your ruins
My pain is your art

My wrists are bound tight so as not to bleed
My eyes were so dark so as not to see
The memories of the past are fading like a bad dream

I've never been so alone than with you
I've never been scared to dream until now
I can't close my eyes
I'll carry on, screaming
Your words are like ice
They melt in the heat

The cold and the pain which you seem to breed
Have become what you are and left your ruins empty

    General CommentThis is easily one of my favorite LAM songs.

    To me, it means this:
    There's this person, and they're just so confining to the singer, and all the singer can do is scream and take the pain. The person takes pleasure in the singer's pain, and are empty inside because the singer's pain is all they have.

    General CommentThe lead singer's name is Sean Brennan. To me the song expresses the living hell that is loneliness. The pain, the torment, the despair it fills us with.

    General CommentThank you, I know what his name is. I was just explaining it without using names, because it might not necessarily be about Sean himself, it can be universal and apply to a lot of people.
