Alesana - To Be Scared By An Owl Lyrics




Look at the sky
As the night descends
The rain is crashing down,
I've hit another dead end
Just before I let hope slip away
A shadow is revealed, the devil shows his face

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame,
(I'm to blame)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

Look in my eyes! Am I shaking now?
I am all you fear, have I made myself clear?

Shut your mouth and finish what you've started
Boy, you haven't got the slightest idea
Just who I am and what I do for you
Don't you see that I am trying to save you?
Shut your mouth and finish what you've started

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame,
(No one else)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

[Speaking:]
As the last rays of sunlight fade,
One killer chases another
Through the tangled madness of the city
A flash of steel announces the presence of his quarry
The stage is set, the night explodes...

You killed her, you murderer
You have stripped me of the one that I love
You killed her, you murderer
You have no clue what she's capable of...

I'm scared to death and have myself to blame
(I'm scared to death and have myself to blame)
How did we end up fighting anyway?

You know, I used to search the sky
And dream of where you were
I need you by my side,
We can end this together
I know I promised you the world
And still I let you down
I need you by my side
And together we'll end this now

You'd better look behind you...

  32. rey carranza

    thank you

  33. karashelby01

    I didn't look back, there might be monsters.

  34. The Rogue Lion

    The question is, did it scare you?

  35. garyblaich

    Not trying to be a dick or anything, but the song isn't about an owl at all, in the booklet "The Emptiness: A Story Told Through The Eyes of a Sketch Artist" that comes with the album, the story behind the album is explained. During the events that inspired this song, the main character, "The Artist", is near "The Thespian", the man who Artist thinks killed his love, Annabel. Artist says something like "I can't back out now, I've come too far into the woods to be scared by an owl".

  36. rey carranza

    this is not a lie i looked behind me....an there was a wall

  37. GreenMintForest

    @LexiiGoesRawr Huh....? o3o

  55. LexiiGoesRawr

    After seeing Annabel's reflection in a window getting her throat slit by the Thespian, the Artist spends the day planning his attack and the evening hunting for the Thespian. A flash of light from the blade of the Thespian stings his eyes and the two engage in a fight to the death. Armed with only his hands and the fleeting memories of his Annabel, the Artist vows revenge but is injured in the fight and tells the Thespian to kill him. The Thespian promises that he did the Artist a favor.

  56. LinkParkEffect

    @TheNeilDavid I'm afraid of your grammar.

  57. MusicalCondom

    @Voldypants Oh LMAO. You fuckin' made my day!

  79. Malcolm Sutton

    @yuriskorsak
    Alot of people do. That is basically what the post-hardcore genre is about. Look at bands like Escape The Fate, We Came As Romans, Black Veil Brides, Eyes Set To Kill, Chiodos etc...
    They have screaming and clean(regular) vocals.

  80. night4345

    @Imcraz4boys no rapers

    @maniac4BFMV; well, right on! (: I LOVE BFMV!! <3

  84. Yuri skorsak

    I love the way they put the scream and reg singing together, thts the best.. i think they should do it with more songs, not just alesana but a lot of bands all together.. love it tho

  85. Tamara Manzella

    I really like this band, I heard them for the first time today... but I'm really not a fan about how long their chorus' go... It's kind of annoying, but nonetheless, they pretty much rule :D

  86. Garret361

    @TheMusicDisorder To remind us how lucky we are to be listening to real music like this :)

  87. Sam Metzger
