 Love is a Lie

  I want to turn of all the stars
 And blow away the moon
 The sun must only shine on Mars
 Another daybreak mustn't happen soon
 If nation stood up against nation
 And the Earth turned into an endless war
 Then everyone must hear my declaration
 That of all this love is the cause
 Let darkness rule a thousand years
 Not one single light must shine
 If I could drown in my own tears
 I might forget you were once mine
 The rain must turn into acid
 And burn holes wherever it falls
 So it can wipe out everything I did
 And nothing will matter at all
 Then let all the birds be silent
 And all the flowers must die
 The wind must be so violent
 That I won't hear the Angels cry
 Let tornado's flatten everything
 And volcanos erupt endless fire
 Weeping Angels must carry the dead on their wings
 And never let me forget that love is a liar
 Let hail and thunder destroy the rest
 And floods wash away the evidence of my sin
 Sickness and disease must reign like pest
 In the end chaos must win
 There must come an end to all leniencies
 Wrath and vengeance must rule
 For me there will never be mercy
 I'm just another one of love's fools
 Let all the oxygen turn to poison
 So that everything can be dead
 To loose a love is enough reason
 No apologies need to be said
 Tear all the planets from the universe
 Let it be known that a lie lies within every truth
 And the name of love is an endless curse
 Then maybe my pain will be soothed
 Finally lighting must tear the world apart
 And the sea must cover all dry land
 Only then tear out my heart
 For this pain I cannot stand
