Alesana - A Lunatic's Lament Lyrics




If only you could see
If only you could see
You're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
If only you could see
If only you could see...

Should I apologize to such pathetic eyes
Just the sight of you has made me sick tonight (tonight)
It was your poison kiss that turned me into this
Then again there is a chance you could be mine tonight

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear... (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
(Are you satisfied?)

What fate has led me here... Oh please forgive me dear
I don't know if I could survive on my own (my own)
I could have married you instead I buried you
Now I will see if I can fall asleep alone (alone)

Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear... (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

(Are you satisfied?)
The nightmares coming true
(Are you satisfied?)
It was all for you
(Are you satisfied?)
I did it all for you
(Are you satisfied?)

I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Darling will you please take a walk with me?
We can count the stars that disappear... (I wish you could see)
I wish you could see, you're the only girl I've ever dreamed of
Are you satisfied?

Are you satisfied?

[Spoken:]
The depths of a mans soul can not be measured in a manor of meters and fathoms; but rather, it is in my opinion, only quantified by his proximity to heaven and hell. It was in such a state I ushered myself
Passed the town tavern, bursting at the seams with the sounds laughter
And drunken piano playing. Had it only been a different night, a
Different place, a different kind of man passing by the threshold
Of that innocent pub, the events that transpired at that point
Would have undoubtedly been drastically different. I can only guess if
Anyone outside that place had a clue when those exclamations of mirth became the
Desperate screams of the helpless begging for their very lives

  14. lich1313

    The narration has the same level of skill and passion as that kid who was afraid to read infront of the class in 3rd grade and ruins this album. Producer's fault how could possibly allow this weak ass shit on a finished product? Fn terrible.

  15. Venemous Syrin

    The Interlude is wrong, these are the actual lyrics:

    "The depths of a mans soul can not be measured in a manor of meters and fathoms; but rather, it is in my opinion, only quantified by his proximity to heaven and hell. It was in such a state I ushered myself

  16. Ollup Hlls

  17. georgie

    this album activated my serial killer side

  18. Ray Getard

    The beginning part was so fucking good <3

    Ben Fazio

    Bro I used ur bmth pfp for so long on all social media lmao

  19. Annebeth Hawkins

    No i dus not say that in the discription

  20. ChloeSOGLAM Bright

    this whole album is based off of Edgar Allen Poe and his poor Annabel who died young. he blames himself for her death and this album's endless portrayal of his agony defies all description

    you're wrong

    You know annabel wasnt the name of his love or spouse right? It was just the name of the poem

    Alex De La Cruz

    a SONG is based on the poem but most of the album was influenced by the 'black dahlia'.

  21. Noemi Button

    Una de mis favoritas💜

  22. wen cat

    una de las mejore q emosion q vendrán ..esperó tener suerte para ir a su consierto

  23. Daniela Lovecraft

    esta canción es tan hermosa, Alesana es una buena banda :'v

  24. Annebeth Hawkins

    Wat is the name of the song & how is the artist please tell me

    Andrew Aujero

    its based on a book as far as i remember and "the painter" in the book which is the artist is so obsess to the girl. i cant remeber much sorry.

    Jenny Ruiz

    It says the name in the title and the band.... o.0

    Annebeth Hawkins

    it is not in the dicription so please just tell me

    savanna vicious

    The band is called Alesana...you couldn't figured that out by looking at the title of the video?

  25. King Silver

    This is my favorite song other than The Thespian

  26. Sam Core

    Amazing,one my favoritesongsof them

  27. Casey Beck

    A different kind of man passing by the threshold of that innocent pub

  28. Saint Jugo

    it kinda pisses me off this song was recognized because of a stupid fanfic but whatever

    allie kutten

    the writer just recently changed the name because of that

    Johnny Tyler

    A lunatics lament got deleted because the writer had bad anxiety so she stepped away from shit then republished it as an original fiction.
    The name got changed probs cause people got triggered.

    DeShawn Smith

    Saint Jugo right. I'm here because of Alesana

    Johnny Tyler

    She just titled the damn fiction after this song. Chill and be respectful to other people's music taste.

  29. Renata Muafaqqah STORY

    This song is my favorite from alesana songs. i try give my friend about alesana songs and this song is the first she like! this song is the best!

  30. rascalmypuppy12

    Alesana ain't nothing like Kellin and Vin, they are better, Shawn would not like to be compared to them, really!

    K. Leanne

    faktionlover Shawn's honestly better than both of them imo, and I really hate when people compare them. Kellin (SWS) sounds nasally AF (not that it matters), Vin/Vic (PTV) just sounds whiny to me (and I used to listen to both bands). Shawn doesn't really sound like that in Alesana's albums. There's a consistency that no other band of similar genre can touch like Alesana can, in my humbly honest opinion.

    I'm sorry, I got passionate. I agree with your statement, and the passion hit like a truck. LOL.

    Wesley Skalaski

    Comparing alesana to any band is stupid, they have more talent than PTV and SWS combined, in the tips of their dick. Also not out for 12 year old girls on the side. Like comparing Diamonds and pebbles. Fuck off faggot.

    Johnny Tyler

    Please just chill
    I listen to all three bands.
    There are definite differences, yes.
    Just because a girl wrote a fanfiction and used this songs title to title the Kellic fic because she liked this band too doesn't mean you can attack her. It's rude, unnecessary, and hypocritical. She just liked the band alright? She thought the song suited the twisted plot of the fanfiction. Shitting on other bands and their fan bases is not respectful, not to mention you guys will get pissy when other people do the same thing to bands you like.
    There was no comparison between Shawn, Kellin, and Vic. Everyone can have their opinion, alright? A lot of the hate that girl got from this fan base is unbelievable. Chill. She did nothing wrong. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.

  31. Michaella Fairbairn

    only Justine have I noticed lunatics lament by kellinunderthevic was named after this song.

    Samantha Marie

    Same!Just noticed it now

  32. Jack McCullough

    Ugh. I read the comments on this video and heard about the Kellin/Vic fanfic named after this song. So I decided to read it lol and holy fuck why must the fucking fan girls make everything so stupid lol I mean Kellin and Vic? Come on, that's fucking retarded. Why must tumblr be so god damn autistic with your fanfics, self diagnosed illnesses, feminazi and otherkin/trans bullshit. This is a great song off of a fantastic concept album but I'm sure Shawn, Dennis, and the rest of Alesana wouldn't want their song to be also known as the name of some weird sexual fantasy that some 13 year old "transnigga buttfuck-kin with self-diagnosed autism" wrote. Let Alesana be awesomely unique, don't make them creepy.

    Venemous Syrin

    +Allie Kutten who changed the title? The bitch who wrote that shitty fanfiction, because is she did change the title then omg YAS, we will see less cancerous people in Alesana's songs.

    allie kutten

    Venemous Syrin congrats

    Cheyenne Mitchell

    Fan fic! ? Lame!
    Anyone in the world of literature knows this entire album was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's Annabel Lee. (A personal favorite of mine)
    This song being about how he is in pain and doing all he can to ease this pain he feel for the loss of Annabel.
    So to those fanfic. Losers.
    Read a book.
    Please.

  33. Gustavo Cunza Rea

    MANOR OR MATTER?
    HELP PLEASE

  34. Raveande Grenore

    Oh my, I just found this wonderful song~

  35. shiloh

  36. Prince Jasper

  37. gnadamsandler

  42. prankmasterstove

    *You're

  43. Nicholas Clark

    This whole album was based off of works from Edgar Allen Poe, stop saying they are good poets!!!

    Spencer Lambert

    This entire album is based off a book that they wrote whose inspiration comes from Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe in which he expresses his sadness for losing his wife Virginia to Tuberculosis, the same deseise that killed everyone he ever loved in his life. This is original.

    Mr. Bucket Hands

    Cuz doing a whole conceptual album based on a short Poe's Poem isn't being a good writter.

    Spencer Lambert

    No dude lol when people create art most of the time they draw inspiration from something like this. The Emptiness is original. I own a physical copy.

    Yuvena Murakumo

    +Spencer “Motion4Less” Lambert What is the name of the book? I would love to read it^^

  44. Taylor Ayuso

    She's who brought me here :)

  45. N3verbloom

  53. Thisfruitloop

    I wish you could see...

  54. Syynex Syyn

    I love 'Shirt Stories'. The one about the spell-checking T-shirt is my favorite.

  55. Billie Rodriguez

    They were inspired by the shirt story that was written about Edgar Allan Poe's poem

  56. tyler stiltner

    these guys always manage to put me in a spot to where i can picture myself doing what they sing about, have to say, all time favorite band, they are not just poets, they are true artists, and i love them<3

  57. Shadow Of A Requiem

    I keep forgetting that it's the year 2013... Where it's easy to be considered a Poet for writing stuff like this.

  58. Leah Mills

    They took this songs from a guy that was crazy for a girl named Anabell and he was crazy in love for her the thespian that is a demon made him kill her then she killed him back with the thespian.So he made all this poems for her :/.

  59. teresa johnson

  62. Sora Kira

    I see Shawn and Dennis as Poets and Storytellers. Its really amazing stuff.

    Anyways, you're welcome :3

  63. Elfiela Decay

    I see, thanks! :D
    cuz I've been listening to them, and I am studying English poems, and I find their lyrics are using many poetic words, and their melody is incredible, like really melodic and poem like, the most poetic post-hardcore band i've ever heard of (tho I haven't heard many XD)

  64. Sora Kira

    Music is Poetry with Rhythm.
    This entire album was based on Edgar Allen Poe's work though, so technically yes its a poem xD

  65. Patterikus

    that's what writing your own songs is all about (:

  66. AnthonyMilkeGames

    Social failure > being popular. Man, I'd rather sit at home, listening to Alesana and playing wow than going out with friends any day! Soon, you'll find someone who likes what you like and you for who you are. Don't worry about what happened with her, in fact. love her, hate her but she's just not for you. Keep your chin up and be you. You'll find someone that will LOVE you!

  67. America Ortiz

    I love this song!!! -.- Nice video. ^___^

  68. native1122

    no don't feel like that theirs a better girl comming

  82. ycruz41

    Hey, don't talk like that. So what she doesn't feel the same way. You will always find someone better. Someone who's going to love you for you. I know it feels like the end of the world right now because I've been there too. All I can say is wait till after high school because life gets infinitely better.
