This Is Aiden - Knife Blood NightMare Master

Lyrics:

She said live young and leave a wake of beauty.

That's all I ever could have asked,

Should have asked from you.

And I won't forget to write you,

When I get there soon.

'Cause you'll be lying dead

From stab wounds to the neck and chest again.

They found you covered up in blood,

Covered head to toe in blood.

Face first in a tale of awkward love.

They found you covered up in blood,

She's bleeding, she's bleeding.

Gone with the stitching in her heart.

Left out a silhouette that just won't

Heal and dying in your arms tonight.

In my dreams, we die. (Locked away)

With this blood and this knife.

In my dreams, we die. (Locked away)

With this blood and this knife, now.

I know it's all just a bad dream now.

So now midnight's here.

You're all alone.

They use this fear.

It's all just a bad dream.

And I can't seem to...

Wake up from this.

Midnight's here.

You're all alone.

They use this fear.

It's all just a bad dream.

And I can't seem to...

Wake up from this.

In my dreams, we die.

With this blood and this knife.

In my dreams, we die.

With this blood and this knife now.

I know it's all just a bad dream now.

(I know it's all just a bad dream now.)

It's all just a bad dream now.

(I know it's all just a bad dream now.)

It's all just a bad dream now.

(I know it's all just a bad dream now.)

I say...

This is the last time,

That I'll ever get to see your face alive.

They found you covered up in blood,

Covered head to toe in blood.

And I know that every day's a new day.

And my dreams will never die.

They found you covered up in blood,

Covered head to toe in blood.

She said live young and leave a wake of beauty.

That's all I ever could have asked,

Should have asked from you.

And I won't forget to write you,

When I get there soon.

'Cause you'll be lying dead from dreaming (nightmares).

So now midnight's here.

You're all alone.

They use this fear.

It's all just a bad dream.

And I can't seem to...

Wake up from this.

Midnight's here.

You're all alone.

They use this fear.

It's all just a bad dream.

And I can't seem to...

Wake up from this.

Midnight's here.

You're all alone.

They use this fear.

It's all just a bad dream.

And I can't seem to...

Wake up from this nightmare.

Atreyu are an awesome band!!

HIM are decent as well, but it's arguable whether or not they are 'emo'. That can be said for most bands so I won't go on... :]

The genre 'screamo' has been sort of re-invented adding more confuson to the 'emo' mix!!

What so-called screamo bands do people like. Alesana, Drop Dead Gorgeous??

At the end of the day if you like the music; whether it be emo, screamo, metal or punk, that's the most important thing.

Stressing over genres too much will just waste time.

At least none of us are into some of the awful RnB and pop chart music.

Ok, "emo" originated in DC in the 80's >__<

Its and offshoot of punk (that's punk [sex pistols, buzzcocks, crass, the clash etc] not F***ing lee harding etc) it originated as emotive hardcore, then became emocore and is now just emo :rolleyes:

mkay.

Original emo bands were nothing like todays, they include, Rites of Spring, Embrace, One Last Wish, Beefeater, Gray Matter, Fire Party check them out yeah?

Emooooo was then pretty much re-invented in 1994, with new ideals, ways of dressing, this wave of emo started combining elements of Fugazi with there music, and produced bands like, Sunny Day Real Estate.

Then came the 3rd wave of emo, which is the emo we know and love now :) the original bands of this third wave were Jimmy Eat World, Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional...etc.

But the basic emo has stayed the same. Emo shouldn't be determined by the bands >.< But behind the elements of a bands music.

My Chemical Romance are not emo, they are associated with emo because of the lyrics and style of clothes of the band, but the actual music falls in alternative rock along with the white stripes >,<

So the top ten emo bands, can really be whatever you wish it to be...

it all depends, do you want acoustic, hardcore, screamo, metalcore...the list goes on..

Emo?

I've been that way ........ since 1984

4th grade.... wow

I think it was Hüsker Dü........ who knows...... my music comes from my mom

She's a dream..... I remember Pink Floyd, Ziggy Stardust, The New York Dolls, Saxon, Kiss (could go on 4 days)..... and then it was silent

Jesus Freaks.......... but it happened..... she made sure.....piano, woodwinds, organ......... and finally a guitar in 1987

Emo?

Every band has an 'emo' song.....

Does it make you cry or feel like 'you'?......... duh

So it's emotional to you to hear 'that song'?

Good dumbass!!!........................................ Start your own band!!!

If your music moves you ............. it's probably 'emo'. Who really cares if a band is 'emo'.......... just listen and stop trying to put our feelings into a 'box' that we can't open. I hear songs from GnR, Megadeth, Loverboy, etc. that could be 'emo'...... yeah sit on it.... I got more..... uhhhhhhhhh? Bryan Adams?

Emo?

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Do your homework and you will see that we are ALL EMO!!!!!

Not sure if I fully agree with the above post because even though genres are subject to so much debate and pointless is some people's eyes, 'emo' is an actual genre (with specific characteristics).

I wouldn't say every band has an emo song because emo doesn't just mean emotional. If you claim "emo" meant "emotional" it then becomes an all encompassing word. It becomes extremely vague and it has no limit as to what it can describe.

At the end of the day everyone has different opinions and is entitled to them. I mean what would people class the following as for example (certainly not all emo IMO):

Bullet For My Valentine

Bring Me The Horizon

October Fall

Underoath

Silverstein

Brand New...etc etc

Many bands can fit into a mixture of genres.

dont ever put punk with emo, emo is for slit the wrists faggots who cry while punk is awesome, mostly street punk and old school!!!

Hey,not all emos cut ok?I'm emo,and one of my friends is too...but she's the one that cuts,not me.And we don't cry 24/7. I agree that punk is awsome,but you got the wrong idea of emo. Emo is short for emotionaly HARDCORE.Or just short for emotional,or emotionally unstable.It all depends...it can be all of em too. :D So don't get the wrong idea

My problem with emo is that stereotypical emo's tend to be annoying, look like plebs, dress like plebs, act like plebs, most of them are depressed, which they put on for attention. I dont like emo music, cause people scream in it too much, and the songs arent exactly upbeat.

And if you think funeral for a friend are dedicated you can thing again, absoloute twats when I bumped into them, fames gone right to their heads.

We don't look like plebs,or act like them.we dress and act like normal pple too ya know. we all put on our shoes one at a time.And we aren't depressed for attention. Everyone has problems in there life sometime right?

Those into the emo scene get mocked by people who know nothing about it and don't bother to understand it. Find something better to do. The media is partly to blame.
