Lyrics from "Selected Scenes from the End of the World"



    Selected Scenes from the End of the World This Paradise
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    I could take your breath away, I could make this feel so right
    Out of the blackest shadows into your burning light
    Your touch would enthrall my heart, my touch could release your soul
    Lying warm and dark in your arms, come close to me now and take control
    Riding through endless nights, bury the nameless dead
    The stars will rain down in the night cast out of Heaven by jealous angels of death
    Together we'll rule our world, together we'll rule theirs too
    Lightning and thunder collide at the edge of the world for me and you

    In this Paradise you'll find just what you're looking for
    Beauty right before your eyes
    How could you ask for more?

    Here behind these eyes, here inside my soul
    Hear the screams of a crucifixion ring through the dark, ring through the cold
    Reach up and pull me down into your hallowed ground
    I'll lead you into temptation, buried in passion I'll lead you down

    In this Paradise you'll find just what you're looking for
    Beauty right before your eyes
    How could you ask for more?


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Inamourada
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    So much to give
    Touch you like never before
    With you I know I'll always forgive
    Because no one else can give me more

    Inamourada
    What are you after?
    It really matters to me

    And I know that there are times
    When all we feel is pain
    Out of touch but never hard to find
    You said you'd always feel the same
    You said you'd never be to blame

    Inamourada
    What are you after?
    It really matters to me
    Inamourada
    What are you after?
    I hear your laughter
    Can you be laughing at me?


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Revenge
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Written in vulgar disgust of ignorance, prejudice and jealousy:
    Deep in this blackened void, the space that used to be my soul
    No ray of light, no hope has shown there in the darkened cold
    In time memories and pain will fade and disappear they must
    But not until this mortal being has turned to scattered dust

    You cannot judge what you don't understand
    Take the blade from the child's hand
    All the petty lies and the jealous whores
    Matter little and leave me bored

    Repent, Remorse, Revenge
    Repent, Remorse, Revenge

    Why don't you just crucify me, nail me to a cross
    And bite and scratch and make me scream if that will get you off?
    In time memories and pain will fade and disappear they must
    But not until this mortal being has turned to scattered dust

    You say a fall from grace would suit me well
    Well you can crawl straight back to Hell
    Fear not to lie, it will seem a sharper hit
    Nor to blaspheme, it will pass for wit
    You cannot judge what you don't understand
    Take the blade from the child's hand
    All the petty lies and the jealous whores
    Matter little and leave me bored

    Repent, Remorse, Revenge
    Repent, Remorse, Revenge


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Trick or Treat
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Standing down by the edge of the Seine
    You look right through me in the heavy rain
    You said that you loved me
    Enough to give me eternity

    And that's how it goes
    The agony of ecstasy
    The passion that you think it evokes
    Is nothing more than a fantasy

    Each night when you rise
    And the phantoms clear from your mind
    It will never hide the wounds that broke the soul inside

    And that's how it goes
    The agony of ecstasy
    The passion that you think it evokes
    Is nothing more than a fantasy

    All the same you still have your needs
    And the beautiful you'll bleed
    The tracks are hidden well from sight
    At least for only one more night


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Your Best Nightmare
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Long after midnight, on a night like this
    I'd sit by my black-light and dream of your kiss
    Pulsating music filled my room and my head
    And I dreamed what it'd be like to have you in my bed

    I'm your best night, your best nightmare
    I'm your best night, your best nightmare

    And then it happened, you were in my arms
    Your lips on my throat, your hands on my, on my...
    Two bodies together the intimate sin
    The pain and the pleasure could do mortals in
    How could you know what I'm thinking of?
    To me lust can be as beautiful as love
    Here tonight, your pure heart and soul
    Untainted passion should have no control
    I'm your best night, your best nightmare
    I'm your best night, your best nightmare

    She asked me if I... I told her the truth
    I said "I'm sorry it takes me longer than you"
    She smiled and blushed and continued to grind
    And promised to make me go out of my mind
    Returning her promise she came to a halt
    Licking my lips I tasted her salt
    Then she sat up and gasped and clutched at her breast
    I thought she was coming I'd never have guessed
    That as she grew pale, as white as a flower
    She collapsed to the floor and was dead in an hour.

    Your best nightmare, your best
    Your best nightmare, your best


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Spider and the Fly
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Empty hearts I can hear them talking
    I close my eyes and I keep on stalking my love, my love
    No one's aware of the hunger I feel
    It's something you or time cannot heal
    I need someone to help me rise above
    Eternal bliss is something I can show you
    Spread your arms and let my wings enfold you, my love, my love
    In the darkness shades of crimson rapture
    The world is ours alone to capture my love, my love

    Come over here and let me tell you something
    Nothing ever comes of nothing
    We pay a price for all our choices made
    Come along now and take my hand
    I'll lead you to a promised land
    The morning after may never come again, will never be the same


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Claire's Horrors
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Spirits seem to drift up through a darkened sky
    Drifting through dead branches in the night
    While in the moonlight we go down upon our knees
    Entwined together only we can see their beauty
    Beneath the stars a bell begins to toll
    For reasons which we really shouldn't know
    So take a walk with me down to the cemetery
    Wrap me in darkness, Claire make love to me

    I am thunder, I am rain, I am pleasure, I am pain
    Only in darkness can there be light, tell me angel have you prayed tonight?

    In the dark I know you all so well
    Beauty from Heaven wrapped 'round souls from Hell
    So take a drink from me, my sacrifice to thee
    Damned fallen angels, always blessed with me

    I am thunder, I am rain, I am pleasure, I am pain
    Only in darkness can there be light, tell me angel have you prayed tonight?
    Burning darkness, red ecstasy, pull me closer and make me bleed


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World Sacrifice
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    ...and here we go again
    We've taken it to the end
    With every waking moment
    We face this silent torment

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you

    Darkness...
    Is all I want to see
    I could never put in to words
    What it is you mean to me

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you

    The candle's burning lower
    At the window to my soul
    The reaper's at my door now
    He's come to take me home

    I'd sacrifice, sacrifice myself to you
    Right here tonight
    Because you know that I love you


    Selected Scenes from the End of the World The Black Cat
    Written by and © Sean Brennan

    Oh Little girl
    Don't go away
    Just come to bed
    And there we'll stay
    Oh little girl
    Lie close to me
    Just close your eyes
    What do you see?

    Black Cat
    Entrance me, devour me

    The storm outside
    Is raging still
    There's no escape
    The one that kills
    Oh little girl
    The time has come
    We think and move
    Exist as one

    Black Cat
    Entrance me, devour me
