I'm over it!
You see I’m falling in the precipice...
Clouded by memories of the past...
At last…I see

I hear it fading, I can't speak it,
or else you will dig my grave;
You feel them finding, always whining...
take my hand now be alive!

You see I cannot be forsaken,
because I’m not the only one,
We walk amongst you feeding, raping...
Must we hide from everyone?

I’m over it.
Why can't we be together embracing,
sleeping so long, taking off the mask,
At last…I see

I hear it fading, I can't speak it,
or else you will dig my grave,
You feel them finding, always whining...
Take my hand now be alive!

You see I cannot be forsaken,
because I’m not the only one,
We walk amongst you feeding, raping...
Must we hide from everyone? (x2)

Everyone...
Everyone...
Everyone…

    General Commentthis song speaks to me moreso than any song that I have ever heard before.....the entire song describes my life/lives.....either literally or metaphorically.....the one line that keeps me going and has finally made me see....'You see I cannot be forsaken, because I'm not the only one' ......when I have felt that I would be discarded because of the things that I am.....I think about those words and realize that there is on possible way that I am the only one that believes and thinks as I do....and it comforts me....

    General Commentthis song is about how Lestat is tired of his vampire ways...

    I'm over it!
    You see I’m falling in a vast abyss...
    Clouded by memories of the past...
    At last…I see

    and how if he talks about the other vampires will try to kill him...

    I hear it fading, I can't speak it,
    or else you will dig my grave

    and how he's tired of them bitching at him...

    You feel them finding, always whining...
    take my hand now be alive!

    he also feels that they cant just cast him aside...

    You see I cannot be forsaken

    and that its bullshit to hide who you are!

    because I’m not the only one,
    We walk amongst you feeding, raping...
    Must we hide from everyone?

    I think Jon Davis did a great job on the making of this song

    General CommentLestat definately is tired of hiding his greatness from the world. He refuses to be condemned to a life of secrecy any longer. Jonathan Davis did a good job of capturing Lestat's bold nature. The novie was a horrid work unworthy of existance, but the music was a saving grace. If you do not connect it with the novels, it's a fun movie, though. But definately, Jonathan Davis is amazing.

    General Commentwow this one was pretty obvious... its lestat saying that he is tired of having to hide that he is a vampire and he is letting the people know that he is a vampire and that there are more like him pretending to be mortal

    General CommentThis song is saying what Lestat feels, he wanted to be famous and let everyone know that he was a vampire and he knew that if he told everyone other vampires would find out and want him dead cause it's forbidden to let people know your secret of who you are (vampire) This is what Lestat and Marius was talking about, some in the beginning of the movie and some when they were on the billboard. Lestat thinks it's crazy to hide who you really are and he questions why others want to do just that.
