Switchblade Symphony



You Came
You Left
You Laughed
I Wept (8)

I tried
So Hard
To Make
You Mine (8)

But Still
My will
Could not fulfill (8)
The Wish
In You
To remain free (8)
And now
All that's left
Of Me (7)
Is this
Switchblade Symphony (7*)

(Verse One) - (Establish loss based on lies and deceit) 9.1

Bliss must be unheard of (6)
Tranquility just a mirage (8)
But still these things seemed real (6)
But still these things seemed very real (8)

When the cloud fades from memory (8)
And I look inside me (6)
After years, drinking sand, (6)
To find I'd been swimming on land (8)

(Verse Two) - (Draw comparisons to musical structures)

This melody stays dark (6)
The harmonies begin to break (8)
Rhythm is just illusion (8)
A side effect of pain (6)

In the still of this night (6)
I once again beg for your light (8)
And find nothing but afterglow (8)
As if I didn't know (6)

(Bridge) - (Reveal the suicidal implications of the switchblade)

Each note is colored red (6)
Each bar is stained in its crimson (8)
It is my final salute (6)
To your most final solution (8)


You're just another note
In this switchblade symphony
