Not a Hollywood Love

It's on the news, all of the time

That death shall come and seek

Where death shall find

 

But I am not afriad

My weary mind

Shall rest my heart and head tonight

 

When we sing

And when you smile

When we speak late at night

 

Then you disappear into the morning

To go and learn

To go and fight

 

And I am stuck here

Without a mind

With all of my life withering

 

When shall I see you again?

The world, it separates

My heart breaks

 

Is it such an honor to die?

To bring the lonely tears

To my eyes?

 

When, lo, I am left behind?

When, no

I will not live the lie

 

Forever you will be near

But far and falling

When I bring you here

 

And bloodsoaked battles

Stain your deadly

Hands

 

But hold me tight

With those same arms

For you are mine

 

My Prince of War

My Holy Knight

I suffer for the tonight

 

Knowing all good things

Do not last

And you will live forever

 

To fall in love with the beast

But the Beauty is a

Beast herself

 

And as I reach for

The top shelf

The volumes fall onto me

 

Do you not know?

For your own safety

Shall I go

 

But no, but no!

For this reason, shall you stay?

I need this crooked way

 

Because I am so lopsided

I need the balance

Of such a man as you

 

And you are mine

And you are true

Worry not, my broken one

 

The love of angels

The love of Princess

Will save you

 

And you will save me

While I drown in a darkened sea

Of self-torture

 

Lift me toward the rising sun

Reddened by the hate 

Of the world

 

Spotted by sin

Blocked be the heavy clouds

But that doesn't matter

 

Raise me from darkness to darkness

I will not despair

For you are there

 

To live in a cruel world

And find the only decent left

Is just enough

 

I'm on the right side of the battlefield

To find you are capable

Of love

 

So love me

Oh, heartless murderer

You are not what you say

 

You will never hurt me

You love me

And away we go, away

 

Life is cruel

Love is kind

But soon, this love will die

 

Enjoy it while we can

For it is true

In a world where I should have known

 

We are the monsters they run from

But we are the renowned

The only helpers left

 

To give our lives to others

To help combat the rest

So The Kingdom is ours

 

And rule with me

We will show how strong

The broken are

 

Broken, our loyal subjects

Who will live for love

In desolation

 

We love

When love

Is gone

 

We hope

When hope

Is gone

 

This is the

Beginning 

Of the end
