    The Graceful Art Of Becoming Paralyzed

    Rapture is the end of all beating hearts
    Anesthetize those failed emotions
    As graceful as we fall, we seem to prevail
    Burying the differences that we keep
    Looking up to set our sights on the stars
    To end all our hope and devotion
    To help us better understand when we fail
    While putting all uncertainty to sleep

    Evict the carelessness within yourself
    And strive to keep your head held up high
    Look across the rolling hills and find your place
    Keep today from becoming yesterday
    Antiquity will not become your help
    This is what you will soon come to find
    And even your Lord will be hiding his face
    Until you take control of your today

    Serenity washes over me
    As my limbs become paralyzed
    The scent of burning candles lingers
    As my life fades away
    Divinity won’t take over me
    Since I can see through all the lies
    See past the One who points the finger
    As my life fades away

    This bridgeless chasm falls underneath me
    Threatening my every movement now
    As a crack forms in the foundation of life
    A perforating fault-line between us
    Another day ruined by all we see
    Grasping me, trying to pull me down
    This message I read was once clouded by strife
    Shrouded in mystery and broken by trust

    Serenity washes over me
    As my limbs become paralyzed
    The scent of burning candles lingers
    As my life fades away
    Divinity won’t take over me
    Since I can see through all the lies
    See past the One who points the finger
    As my life fades away

    This gentle act of contrition
    Has opened my eyes to a brand-new world
    And I’m able to overcome the torment
    To devour all of my hatred
    The tragedy of condition
    Shines brighter than the whitest of all pearls
    While agony takes its place in the convent
    The abhorrence of all that is dead

    Serenity washes over me
    As my limbs become paralyzed
    The scent of burning candles lingers
    As my life fades away
    Divinity won’t take over me
    Since I can see through all the lies
    See past the One who points the finger
    As my life fades away

    Hah. That's weird. I've never even heard Metallica's "Fade To Black," so I wouldn't know if it matched up with it or not. :lol:

    But thanks for the comment!

    Song title reminds me of nine inch nails' The Beauty of Being Numb.

    Lyrics are good too. (w00t)
