Alesana - The Best Laid Plans Of Mice And Marionettes Lyrics




There's no escape from this awful place!

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?

Take a look around, the scenes are all the same.
I can see the veil right behind me.
I'll close my eyes and this will go away.
Have I ever said this before!?
If I just keep moving will I be okay or panic in the mayhem!?
I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin to start all over again.

The truth has finally shown it's face.
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice, you blinded me and stole my voice!
I will see you soon.

Hey, stranger what's your name?
Have we met before?

Do I ever dare to question fate's design or submit to such a bleak destiny?
There has to be another way than this, It's a hopeless fight anyway!
I will not give up and wash away the sin, I'm thirsting for the carnage!
I can't take it, I'm battered and broken, abandoned forever!

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin to start all over again.

The truth has finally shown it's face.
How long have I been in this place?
I never had a choice, you blinded me and stole my voice!

I will no longer take flight from you...
Now that you've got me, what's next?!
Let me help.
Now I destroy you, demon!
Sinew is ripped to shreds!
Stripped form your body, crimson!
Fury of righteousness will now consume you in death!

It's the sweet, sweet song of your heartbeat.
All I feel is a memory.
Of the night I laid in bed with you.
It's the easy sound of your breathing.
Telling me what I should've seen.
Where was I when you fell fast asleep?

I can't live without you by my side.

It's round and round and round we go.
Somebody please let me know just what it takes to begin, to start all over again!

It's round and round and round we go.
Someone please let me know just what it takes to begin, to start all over again!

Alesana The Best Laid Plans Of Mice And Marionettes Comments
  1. TyeDye Errthing

    I remember years ago I was still in highscholl when this came out I discovered this album from my lesbian friend years later I remember I listen to this song on acid and was blown away now 3 more years afyer that I come back and love it even more. Such a great song

  2. Sam :)

    I noticed when listening to this song that the end is all cut off and I came to youtube to check and see if it was just the way I downloaded it (if my download had glitched) and it's like this on everything I watch. Why is that?

  5. Mixichuu

    I could have sworn I heard this song on the radio before. :/

    Rain Montgomery

  6. Oliver Souza

    The one band who's talent remains consistent with each album they produce.

    GetScaredGaming - Henry Wylie

    Actually i can think of lots of bands that remain consistant

    The Legacy Of Kaizer

    +GetScaredGaming Like Get Scared?

  10. Noah Haines

    That's actually the right ending of the song

  11. Andrew Sykes

    Jeniffer Igidio

    @GetScaredGaming I know, I've seen you in almost every Alesana video :v (not just alesana videos actually)

    (also, I realized that most of the alesana fans are guys a while ago. My conclusions were based on the number of alesana fans here where I live, mostly girls :T)

  14. Anonym084f

    I am also a girl, ww

  15. Ronnie Koutny

    I'm kind of surprised that you'd find it surprising that girls like Alesana. I'm a girl, and some of my female friends like Alesana, just like I do.

  27. Baconboy2015

    Not necessarily. I went to one of their concerts back in October and there were a few girls (including my sister and my girlfriend) but there were mainly guys.
