Carl Waterfield The brilliant cover brought me to this album - and it's all great. Similar to Evanescence I feel - a good thing! Favorite track: Gone Away.
Femetalism thumbnail
Femetalism The album is full of catchy guitar riffs and the female vocals are incredibly enchanting.

Included on the album is a beautiful cover of The Offsprings, Gone Away. A moving and emotional song originally, Noctura have made the song even more haunting. I am particularly taken with the album art which was created by Cathryn Hahn.

Henchmen4Hire Came for the cover, stayed for the album full of "banshee lullabies" (my term of endearment for this particular sound). Only regret finding this 10 years too late.

Fade 03:28
you don't believe in anything under a veil of dignity you scatter your broken memories all around me all of your days have been replaced by all of the games your ego plays when will it ever be the same you give it all away with all the smiles and satisfaction you fake you give it all away when all your lies come crashing down in your face then i will be the one to watch you fade no one can see what lies beneath the fragile facade you show to me but i know your pain and suffering it screams so loudly while you deny your looming fate all i can see is black and rain nothing will ever be the same and all you can say is don't worry baby i'm losing my faith take away all your vanity all your pride it's too late you've already begun to die
Everything 04:07
i walk the line is it good enough for you or should i try to imagine something new all the blame you throw at me is your cross to bear and the way your careless ways repeat alone i waste away i give you everything a loving heart that burns through every twist and turn i would do anything to feel it in return i guess i'll never learn it's all around you live in lies and fantasies you've got your crown and your reign is menacing i'll endure another day and give in to your ways but you're not everything to me and i know you'll never be you used to be so kind your words they made me feel alive but now you tear me down you look at me and all i see is hate
misery such a thief you took my heart away thought you'd leave and i would be okay no, not today believe me never meant to make you feel this way forgive me before i die another day i can't erase the things i said that made you go away give me just one chance and hear me say i'm sorry i fall asleep without you and i can't breathe without you
Undone 03:35
you gave away your last confession to face your long awaited dreams and now the cloak you wore so proudly it bares your soul for all to see you can't hide anymore all the things you ignore now there's nowhere to run all the lies that you made were too much to take who will you turn to now that you've come undone you never knew the ones who waited to get a taste of something real they can't recall the songs you sang them and they don't even know your name give me your faith and i'll be your grace show me a sign can you show me a sign how long will you wait to burn your mistakes growing with time only growing with time give me your faith and you'll be okay the world is waiting for you but all your believing is leaving you empty inside and in this final revelation you'll offer anything to save the crumbling path that lies between us but it's been buried in your grave
Gone Away 04:07
maybe in another life i could find you there pulled away before your time i can't deal it's so unfair and it feels and it feels like heaven's so far away and it feels and it feels like the world has grown cold now that you've gone away leaving flowers on your grave to show that i still care but black roses and hail marys can't bring back what's taken from me i reach to the sky and call out your name and if i could trade i would i'll save your soul
it's such a compromise for you to lead the way when i can't see it oh so overwhelming i try to see behind the angry colors of your cold indifference give me any sign don't save me when i'm falling down you're always the one waiting on the ground but i still dream and make believe you'll be there for me when i am bleeding you try to sympathize but deep inside you there's a satisfaction when you see my plight and as the tale unwinds i only find the pieces of my spirit raining down on me i pray to see you shine and give you all of my life while you wait for my demise in the meantime
One More Day 03:14
only a moment away give up my everything keep it safe yesterday's ridden with shame all the deceiving becoming reality it's getting colder lonely inside can i forget about all i can't live without i'll make it all go away lonely i'll be without all of the inner doubt feeding the need give me one more day keep it all deep down below wait 'til i'm drowning before i show always a place for my blame living's a sacrifice i won't make it's getting colder leave me behind i know i won't give it up i know what i'm made of i know it's destroying but i don't mind
along for the ride run away my thoughts collide dreams they only fade undo the pain and rearrange me so i can behold all lies unfold so i bleed destiny's madness is killing me holding me tightly so i can't breathe what will become of my fantasy oh it's already gone if all remains the same in the end how will it play my unyielding fate will soon betray and suddenly i know i'll be deprived of this lullaby
in the night i have heard your voice a thousand times calling out so far away unlock me unlock me heal my abiding soul take me and appease the aching envy forevermore i can feel winds have taken all the promises you gave me things you never meant to leave behind i can hear the soft and lonely whispers of our timeless moments playing my forever lullaby a sea of white i can see you and your smile so bright every time i close my eyes all of me all of me teach me to feel alive take me and appease the aching envy forevermore now you're free of all the pain now you're free to fly away fly away i'll find you someday
Venom 05:46
a never ending fight always looking brave into the sky i need someone to calm my fears and tell me it's alright a leading light will i ever see it shine or is there anybody here feels so alone all the paths unwinding in my darkest hour i'm finding everything the answers lie within me and my eyes can finally see through all the tangled lies i won't believe again wash away the venom from my mind i would always say maybe things are meant to be this way condemning me to everlasting hunger for true life another day it'll never be the same i've found the answer deep inside guiding me home i leave it all behind so i can feel alive
