Delain Sever

Things that I thought I had put far behind

Find the mind, connect to sever

I felt deeply how my feelings combined

That it’s like, they’ll never sever

In a way I started today

To weave garlands for the grave

It will break me till my knees bend

It will leave me with nothing in the end

In a blatant mind, my thoughts have entwined

But if you feel the real they will divide

From beyond within, the heart plays its part

The real and fake forever sever

Delain Hands Of Gold

Blood-red and sweet

Mouthful of wine

I savour it

And taste the freedom

On your lips

And heaven knows

I tried

To steer away

Delicious danger

Made me stay

Now I’m closer

Closer to the edge

Closer to experience

all of life and all of death

Oh I’m falling

Closer, closer to the edge

Closer to experience

Into love and out of breath

I am falling

Blood, red and sweet

Spill in excess

Stick to our hands

And in its rush we both shall rest

And pain nor fear

Can break

This bond, our chain

Together for our crimes

We’ll pay

Some kill their love when they are young

And some when they are old

Some strangle with the Hands of Lust

Some with Hands of Gold

The kindest use a knife because

The dead so soon grow old

Yet each man kills the thing be loves

By each let this be told

Delain Daylight Lucidity

Daylight lucidity

Stream through me

Let me dream

Out of this world, out of this world

[Chorus:]

I cannot sleep

Sedate me

Wide awake

Animate this soul

I’m still following the pain

Daylight lucidity

Beam on me

Come to me

Into my sleep, into my sleep

[Chorus]

Don’t try to wake what is unreal

The secrets only you must seal

You hold the key of what I need

Unlock the door that will reveal

[Chorus]

Delain Danse Macabre

Just ’cause it’s part of a plan

That doesn’t make it right

If I put my life in your hands

It’s still unmistakably mine

Dark its wings across a pitch-black-sky:

Death will come for me, but not tonight

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

I said I’d walk the mile

Not that I’d walk in line

I can not promise I’ll smile

But I can promise I’ll try

And if I ever make another vow

It’s to live for what’s right here and now

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

It’s the art of death

Give me your best

Give me your darkest

It’s the art of the fall

That comes for each and all

But I’ll keep it waiting for me

It’s the art of death

Give me your best

Give me your best

On the second that I fall apart

I will greet your old familiar face

But I reckon it won’t be today

Not today

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

Let the earth cover me

Angels will call for me

But in time, not tonight

Let the earth cover me

Let the earth cover me

Let the earth cover me

Let the earth cover me

Let the earth cover me

Delain Are You Done With Me?

This city drinks and roars

Each word so meaningless

Each word, especially yours, echoes inside my head

[Bridge:]

Why can’t you see

I won’t let you get your way

Let you get the best of me

I just need to know

Are you done with me?

[Chorus:]

So are you done with me?

And if you won’t you just let me be

I try to understand your reasons for leaving

I cannot believe it

This city drinks and screams

this night will never end

This city made of dreams

My dreams have turned to sand

[Bridge + Chorus]

So are you done with me?

Now you wanna sleep?

Did you realize that I can’t be all you need

Are you done with me?

Now you wanna sleep

If love is gone then I am done again.

[Chorus x2]

This city drinks and roars

Delain Babylon

Easy now

we don’t need this

take a breath

and believe it’s

just a phase

that we’re going through

I try to shout

but my words go in and out

did you even hear me say

that I still love you

We are losing our way

can’t you hear what I say

like a child, calling out

in the night

We’re lost in Babylon, Babylon

time is slipping away

Holding on, it won’t be long

until the dawn of the day

Lost in Babylon, Babylon

still we need to believe

When love is gone

we’re moving on

Not a long, long way from home

Back to back

we’re to proud to face the facts

though we sleep in the same bed

there’s no coming though

face to face

I can see you through a maze

of the words we spoke in vain

You know this will go out of hand

If we don’t understand

this confusion of tongue

feels so wrong

We’re lost in Babylon, Babylon

time is slipping away

Holding on, it won’t be long

until the dawn of the day

Lost in Babylon, Babylon

still we need to believe

When love is gone

we’re moving on

Not a long, long way from home

Lost in Babylon

There’s a right to your wrongs

there’s a truth in my lies

I can’t hear from your words

but I see in your eyes

We’re lost in Babylon….

Delain Cordell

Though once you ruled my mind

I thought you’d always be there

And I’ll always hold on to your face

But everything changes in time

And the answers are not always fair

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place

Cordell, time will tell

They say that you past away

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place

Time will tell, time will tell

They say that you past away

And I know that you’ve gone to a better place

Cordell, cordell

Cordell, cordell

Your lover and baby will cry

But your presence will always remain

Is this how it was meant to be

You meant something more to me

Than what many people will see

And to hell with the industry

Cordell, time will tell

They say that you past away

And I hope you’ve gone to a better place

Time will tell, time will tell

We all will depart and decay

And we all will return to a better place

Cordell, cordell

Cordell, cordell

Nana, nana, nana, nana

Nana, nana, nana, nana

Delain Control The Storm

I can feel it grow

Starting like a little storm

Itching in my toes

But it’s will to take over

Ain’t quite that small

I can feel it grow

I can hear it moan

I can hear it’s bitter cries

In my veins it crawls

Underneath my tongue it hides

I’m in control

An error in my genesis

The reason why I started this

Where did we go wrong?

Don’t you know

In the end you’re no stronger of hand

You are no stronger of heart

Don’t you know

In the end, we’ll be tragically torn apart

If we can’t control the storm

Does it get to you?

Fury in your fingertips

It doesn’t get me too

Turning hands to angry fists

In rageful bliss

Oh does it get to you?

Crying all your lullabies

Do you lick your wounds

Wondering how we could try to stop this useless fight

An error in my genesis

The reason why I started this

Where did we go wrong?

Don’t you know

In the end you’re no stronger of hand

You are no stronger of heart

Don’t you know

In the end, we’ll be tragically torn apart

If we can’t control the storm

Delain The Monarch

I looked at the stripes

The monarch flies

I halt my cries

If my friend

If you can change

Perhaps then so can I

Delain We Are The Others

I’m walking with Sophie tonight

She lives in the air that I breathe

I can’t get it out of my mind

How you were left to bleed

Was it how you dressed

Or how you act

I can’t believe

How they could act so violently,

Without regret,

Well, we will not forget…

[Chorus:]

We are the others,

We are the cast-outs,

We’re the outsiders

But you can’t hide us

We are the others

We are the cast-outs

You’re not out there on your own

If you feel mistreated

Torn and cheated

You are not alone

We are the others

(we are the others)

As simple as air in your lungs,

As simple as words on your lips,

And no one should take that away,

No one should argue this

Now with our heads up high,

We’ll carry on,

And carry out,

That we won’t let them get us down

Or wear us out

‘Cause we are not alone…

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Normal is not the norm,

It’s just a uniform…

(We are the others)

Forget about the norm

(We’re the outsiders)

Take off your uniform,

(We are the others)

We are all beautiful,

(We are the others)

[Chorus]

We are the others,

We are the others.
