Curse Of The Virgin Canvas

I am here to tell you a story
A story that will torture your thoughts by day and poison your dreams by night
And though i will do my best
There are no words that can be written
Nor brush strokes laid on canvas that can describe this dark
And utter horror of the night that Annabel died
The emptiness will haunt you

This is a nightmare
Is my Annabel really gone?
My eyes are stung by daylight
I find it hard to breathe
Her body teases me
As the sun reveals the dawn
The smell of blood still crawls
I kiss you softly goodbye

Baby lay in my arms
And cuddle me close
Soon this will be
Just an awful memory
(Will I ever be able to sleep again?)

My angel lie to me
And tell me I'm dreaming
(please wake me up, please wake me)
A girl like you will always be
Such a tragic part of me
(oh ecstasy, you torture me)

I watch the blood drip
From the corners of your mouth
Your icy flesh is lying
Your pallid skin still glows

I'm starting to believe
What my eyes are seeing now
You're still so beautiful
And yet so morbidly still

Baby lay in my arms
And cuddle me close
Soon this will be
Just an awful memory
(will I ever be able to sleep again?)

My angel lie to me
And tell me im dreaming
(please wake me up, please wake me)
A girl like you will always be
Such a tragic part of me
(oh ecstasy, you torture me)

Sweet revenge
He will pay
He will pay (my dear)

Empty eyes accuse
A face so evil
I'm coming undone
The mirror says it all
A crimson story
Of innocence lost
Empty eyes accuse
A face so evil
I'm coming undone

So terribly memory returns
Of her struggle, of her screams, of her
Lord forgive me
My stomach heaves as I see
The blood that covers me
Blood that once was her
I'm a monster

Such an awful memory
(will I ever be able to sleep again?)

My angel lie to me
And tell me I'm dreaming
(please wake me up, please wake me)
A girl like you will always be
Such a tragic part of me
(oh ecstasy, you torture me)

Sweet revenge
I will pay
I will pay (my dear)

[Annabel]
A mirror never lies
They know, everybody knows
Do you not see what they see?
A mirror never lies
I see what they see
Everybody knows, everybody knows
