Additional Info: It Suits Me Well is an early title for The Vigil. Released on the Nothing Ever Changes tape.

And I saw right through

And though I knew

You know it suits me well

I wait for you

I dream about you

You know it suits me well

Bound by your leaving

I'd since forgotten

I knew it then

But then I closed my mind

To truth, the awful

The awful words

You know my hands are tied

Bound by your leaving

You know my hands are tied

Wishing you were by my side

You know it suits me well

Bound by your leaving

You know my hands are tied

Wishing you were by my side

Well it seems to show

Only when I'm alone

All alone

Only when I'm all alone

It suits me well

Armed to the teeth
With everyone you meet
They are taxes at the door(?)
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honored on the floor
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
Settled on the sheets
With everyone you meet
They are on honored on the floor
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honored on the floor
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
Armed to the teeth
With everyone you meet
They are taxes at your door (?)
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honoured on the floor
It’s my party
It’s my party and I’ll go if I want
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on

It's all I wanted

It's all I could see

You can watch me bleed

Settle your belief inside of me

Take what you have inside

This is not your love I wish to break

And there's something to guide you

Daylight comes and washes over me, me

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see

It's all I wanted

It's all I could see

You can watch me bleed

Settle your belief inside of me, me

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see, dear

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see

One and two is three

There it goes

Playing with my heart again

I don't know when

I'm gonna come up for air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way you look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while

I can't hide

Come and go

Wasting my years

I was born to fear

That there's something in the air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way you look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while

I can't hide

When you've thought to come back

Would you take me home?

When you've thought come back

All alone

All alone

There it goes

Playing with my heart again

I don't know when

I'm gonna come up for air

For you now, again

For you now

For you now

And the way look at me

Makes me happy inside

Knowing all the while I can't hide

When you've thought to come back

Could you take me home?

When you've thought to come back

All alone

All alone

I've been here before

And I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

Heading for the floor

Turning back unless I'm sure

Heading for the floor

And something tells me I'm alone without you

You take

My eternity alone, alone

I've been here before

And I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

Heading back, down before

I don't know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I'm alone without you

To believe

And I beg

To see

And I beg

(?)

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone

And I fail, …

My eternity alone, alone

And I fail, ...

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone, alone

Additional Info: Slightly different lyrics from the studio version.

It makes no difference to me

If i die in my sleep tonight

I'm sick to the bone

And longing for home

My blood runs white

And i didn't want anyone

And i didn't want anyone

To be hurt by my words

If there's pain in hell, i'm feeling it today

Wishing i were seven in a children's heaven

How heavy the world weighs

How heavy the world weighs

Ghosts don't cry

And the dead don't die

They walk hand in hand

As if partners in crime

Partners in crime

Partners in crime

I fall

On and on and on down

I fall

On and on and on down

Falling down

On and on and on down

I'm falling down

On and on and on down

The world could feed you lies

But it's me you've come to despise

Like a head on a plate of purity

Playing judas iscariot

In the hands of sanctity

How heavy the world weighs

How heavy the world weighs

When one must carry the world

I fall

On and on and on down

I fall

On and on and on down

I'm falling down

On and on and on down

I'm falling down

On and on and on down

I fall

On and on and on down

I'm falling down

On and on and on

On and on and on down

I fall down

When you're not around

I fall down

When you're not around

Hiding behind my hair today

My eyes dance with fire

The thought of living here

And the bounds I transpire

Walking in this slow-motion town

I seem to think so fast

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

The grave that bears my name

Transpires in a dream

I dream immortality

Yet I fall in vain

Cause as long as I don't breathe

I'll never be like them

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

Hiding behind my hair today

Wishing I was far away

Walking in this slow-motion town

I seem to think so fast

Standing with your mannequin

I try to hold my breath

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

If you go and I would stay

And you would call my name

I would cry, yes, I would cry

If you go and I would stay

You would call my name

I would die, yes, I would die

Walking in or walking out

Is the same as talking about my heart

My heart

Open up your heart

And let your demons out

Open up your heart

And let your demons out

I've been waiting, waiting, waiting for you

I've been waiting, waiting, waiting

Yes it's true

Gather up your words

And realize your worth

Gather up your words

And celebrate this birth

I've been waiting, waiting, waiting for you

I've been waiting, hesitating

Yes it's true

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

Open up your heart

Open up your heart

I've been waiting, waiting, waiting for you

Hesitating-tating, waiting for you

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

I can't throw it away

I can't for another holiday

For another holiday

For another, another holiday
