Haken - Deathless Lyrics




Dying hope visit me in the flesh
Another noose wrapped around my neck
Your helping hand is all I need
To pull the ground out from underneath

No will to live
I'm tempting fate
I feel most alive
Confronting death
But life goes on
With no escape
Don't wait for me
I'm here to stay

Point that gun, press it to my head
Deathless blood, suck it out from my neck
No one's gonna miss me when I'm gone
I'm killing time but I'll live on

Nowhere to run
It's not too late
I'll end my life
At my own pace
Holding on
I take the pain
Don't wait for me
I'm here to stay

To the afterlife I will never know
With a fixed blade knife held up to my throat
On immortality I will overdose
All this you can read in my suicide notes

Kiss my scars, taste them on my breath
Stealing time from the great suspense
Come Judgment Day I've one last request
Please hold my hand as I harm myself

No will to live
Nowhere to run
I'm tempting fate
It's not too late
I feel most alive
I'll end my life
Confronting death
At my own pace
But life goes on
Holding on
With no escape
I take the pain
Don't wait for me
IMPATIENTLY
I'm here to stay

To the afterlife I will never know
With a fixed blade knife held up to my throat
On immortality I will overdose
All this you can read in my suicide notes

Still I wait

  2. Ignacio Centurion

    Never thought about it, but this sounds so much like Damnation!

  3. Rizumu GoldenChezt

    uhhhhh 6:55 is like god's tears in my ears its so good.

  4. sillyname396

    Theres tons of people griping about hOlY sHiT tHiS iS sO dEeP and they probably dont know that this is a story and not just an edgy 14 year old white girl Billie Eilish song

    sonicshroom

    Idk, I mean this song is actually deep, and people(including myself) relate to it due to its very visceral discussion of suicide and apathy.

  5. Maverick Jet

    Saddest fucking song I’ve ever heard in my life. Being someone that suffers and fights depression and suicide this hits home so fucking hard. Beautiful in a tragic way. To any reading this feeling the same, you’re not alone

  6. Rody Walker

    idk how ppl survive through the song. The whole 8 minites I just wanted to die.

  7. Emilly Patricia

    Amo essa música minha #preferida

  8. lorenzo natali

    I've loved this Song from the first listen but, now, i also can deeply understand the lyric...i really feel it on me and, somewhere in me, i know that this only means that my end is near. And the saddest thing is that i really need someone to hold my hand on my judjment day...just one hand of one particular person...but i know that i can't have it. This was my life's song from the start of all and I'm understanding it only now.

  9. MAFussell

    A friggin prog ballad masterpiece. What a great band!

  10. Massimo Bollini

    One of the best and innovative bands of the last years.

  11. kapamar

    the part after 6:00 is beyond this world

  12. Arqueen

    This weirdly makes me think of... It was either men at work or the police

  13. oscarj08

    The outro instrumental part reminds me a lot of the instrumental medley of "River" by Gentle Giant. i wouldnt be suprised due to GG influences on Haken.

  14. Maggoony

    4:30 fuck..... what a riff

  15. Soufiane Aouacheria

    i like it

  16. Manuel

    This and Somebody are priceless...

    Knave New World

    I beg to differ from you there. My favourite track on The Mountain is Falling Back to Earth; I find it just riveting.

    Basoosh

    Somebody is my favorite from The Mountain as well. High five!

    Manuel

    Well, actually, I never said Somebody was my favorite from The Mountain... I just compared it to Deathless as nice slow songs. Anyway Somebody and obviously Falling Back to Earth are my favorites... and Pareidolia, and Atlas, well the whole album.

  17. Rebecca Zachary

    First time listener. Song reminds me of a theme of lament from a video game, like Secret of Mana.

    Knave New World

    +Tania Bloodfyre Never played it.

    Beau Cardwell

    best game ever! Getting a 3d remake on ps4!

  18. S M

    If you don't listen to the whole album then please dont say anything

    Knave New World

    +Effective English I've listened to it a few times. It's good, but I prefer Aquarius personally. Thanks for the comment.

    katana_92

    Sarkhan Mehdiyev Anything

  19. István Solymár

    This with "Sun" is my Celestial Elixir!

  20. Maverick Jet

    The llyricsare practically pulled from my head, its crazy and depression is hard to live with. "No ones gonna miss me when Im gone" "I feel most alive, confronting death"

  21. kingmikol

    What a hauntingly tragic but beautifully composed song. Reading the lyrics while listening takes the song to another level.

    wolffe93

    @kingmikol they're very brave taking on this subject in their lyrics, this could've backfired tremendously if done wrong.

    Mosh Pit

    @wolffe93 but haken done good with it. Because haken is life

    PICHAS LOCAS

    @Mosh Pit Haken is love

  22. Adam Bybee

    This song is beautiful and, having known people close to me with long term depression and suicidal ideation, covers the topic in a more nuanced way than most; it expresses the emotions from different angles.  

    Leonid Isachenko

    This song and Sun, two absolutely brilliant pieces of progressive rock music. stunning.

    István Solymár

    +Leonid Isachenko same here :d

  23. Iridescent Noise

    crazy how the pretty melody juxtaposes the lyrical content. Very creepy, dark and masterfully crafted.

  24. sandor mikus

    Great performance

  25. Crayg Lewis Williams

    Love how it has 0 dislikes! It's impossible not to love!

    Crayg Lewis Williams

    You are right, I must've just looked at the last comment reply! Either way, I came back to it n_n @JulianBaynes1

    Nick Wilcox

    +SoutherNature Its pleasing to see that this video has not received a single dislike more in an entire year :D its still 5

    Crayg Lewis Williams

    Fuck yeah!

    SugerScarf

    @SoutherNature Fuck yeah is right man! 

    Ronnie Dale

    checking on you 5 months later

  26. Taylor Dance

    Goodbye Tom. 25-09-2014 We will all miss you.

  27. Christopher .Weafer

    I agree. I'm very picky with vocalists and his voice immediately spoke to me.

  28. Cookie Cookie

    yeah me two

  29. Cookie Cookie

    cant wait for there first music video

  30. Jorge Chumbe Marrou

    i love that song

  31. Emma Rogers

    One of my all time favourite songs! The lyrics are pretty dark but its a beautiful song all the same.

  32. Paduraru Vlad

    OMG!!...WHAT A GOOD SONG!!!...THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU GUYS!!

  33. Soren Buenneke

    It's funny cuz I listen to this song when I can't die

  34. Savy

    I love it ^_^

  35. Terri Selbe

    yes... it's all good... love the story ... haunting. Loved their first release too. Nice to know fellow Haken-lovers. :-)

  36. xsaduss

    I love the keyboard work specially at the end for the song.

  37. scottFullerFuck

    Well Im aware of great minds.. especially when they think alike, but can you make this connection? THROWDOWN - DEATHLESS (2009) comon now im not the only one.. although this is very good its new to me but im thinkin they were a little inspirationless rather than deathless on this album...

  38. Jordan Taylor

    This song is so great along with the band!!

  39. Brandon Pellegrin

    meu atual vicio !

  40. Terri Selbe

    listen to the whole album... it's a story.

  41. Terri Selbe

    i love this song so much... love the bass work... so emotive.

  42. Lady Lazarus

    no shit!

  43. Mike Del Gaudio

    Every time I listen to a new Haken song I wonder it's my favourite...

  44. MrSilentDoubleA

    The whole album is about death so-to-speak, google it :)

  45. snakev10v5

    Not my thing, but the intro kinda made me feel awesome :)

  46. Darth Revan

    One of my favourite songs atm! ^^

  47. Remy Reurling

    @cristallinedream meh I don't think so. technically it's executed perfectly, and his voice is soothing as well. It fits perfectly to the tune and it's layered extremely well as well.

  48. seyhan

    Great song!!!

  49. Justin Abernethy

    The melody of the verses sounds similar to the chorus of "Cry Freedom" by Dave Matthews Band.

  50. Terri Selbe

    I love this song!

  51. shakalito1

    Excelent song!!! great album!!!!
    thanks for sharing :D
