Lyrics

Fallen version

Catch me as I fall
Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain] Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name] Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them] Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

I'm frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there's much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears
I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me, I fear

She beckons me shall I give in?
Upon my end shall I begin?
Forsaking all I've fallen for
I rise to meet The End? [I rise to meet my end?]

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

[Servatis a periculum] Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
[Servatis a periculum] Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

[Servatis a periculum] Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
[Servatis a periculum] Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum

Servatis a periculum
