    Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen
    Now I've heard there was a secret chord
    That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    But you don't really care for music, do you?
    It goes like this
    The fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall, the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
    She tied you
    To a kitchen chair
    She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    You say I took the name in vain
    I don't even know the name
    But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
    There's a blaze of light
    In every word
    It doesn't matter which you heard
    The holy or the broken Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    I did my best, it wasn't much
    I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
    I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
    And even though
    It all went wrong
    I'll stand before the Lord of Song
    With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    There was a time in which I became obsessed with the lyrics of Dream Theater's "In the Name of God".

    Lost Reflections by Crimson Glory

    Locked in this attic
    Been here so many years
    Shanna won't set me free
    She says I'm evil
    But then she doesn't know
    I'm not pretending, no, not me

    Full moon's reflecting
    A face in the mirror
    Twisted and bleeding
    No, you can't be real, no you're
    All in my mind
    Shades of insanity, you're not me
    You're not me

    Life in the attic
    I like my rocking chair
    Staring in shadows
    Crouched in the corner
    Waiting for something
    Laughing at nothing
    No one there

    And on and on I wonder is there more
    What is life beyond the attic door
    The full moon in my eyes
    Is all that's real
    The mirror's lost reflection is in me

    Life in the attic
    Life in the attic
    Life in the attic
    Life in the attic

    Cobwebs and dusty dreams
    Sharp knives and hollow screams
    Wide eyes of terror
    Clawing the attic door
    Can't take it anymore
    You better go away!

    You're lyin'
    Hurry
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    Who's there?
    No one there
    You're not me!
