I’m over it.
You see, I’m falling in a black abyss,
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 winding.
Take my hand,
I’ll 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? It makes sense.
Sleeping so long, taking off the mask.

At last I see.

My fear is fading, I can’t speak it
Or else you will dig my grave.
You feel them binding,
Always whining.
Take my hand,
I’ll 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?

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

Everyone...?

Everyone...?

    General Commenti think in this song, David is putting himself in the vampires place, (obviously). He's putting himself in Alliyah's character from Queen of the Damned. Saying that there is no reason to hide. or something like that,

    General CommentWell Jonathan Davis wrote the song, David is just providing some splicing vocals on the soundtrack, however it seem a suiting song for him to preform. Its about the vampire Lestat and his longing for more than the dark life of seclusion he has been cursed to. He's now open to the world about who and what he is.

    General CommentThis song is great. Its more focused on Lestat though I mean he did "sing" it in the movie. It is definitely "life in a vampire's shoes."

    General CommentGod i love this song! lol, and disturbed was just the band to do it. Foresaken is obviously taling about Lestat,and Vampires. Which would be why i enjoy this song so much, it's one of my very favorite songs like ever.!!!!! Also download Slept so Long by Orgy... another fabulous song off of the queen of the damned soundtrack.

    General Commentforsaken. its all about the vampires in QoD. they were forsaken. i love this song. to really feel the song you have to turn it up loud n listen to it in a dark room n just listen to the lyrics n feel the beat run through your body n soul.
