The Artist Lyrics

What is wrong with her eyes?
A glossy stare that won't leave me be starts my blood running cold.
A gaze that could make hell freeze over...
I have to understand she's gone...
But she's not!
Don't you tell me that she is dead!
Watch her...

    This song is from the album The Emptiness which is based off of Edgar Allan Poe's last poem Annabel Lee. The narrator of the song is The Artist who believes he is going insane. "Maybe I am crazy and my mind is trying to deceive me"
    He can't continue to paint as he tries to believe that Annabel isn't dead, and presuming to have hallucinations.
    "As the ground vanishes I wonder, will the sky be the next to fail me? Paint abandons canvas and my brush can't seem to start again from scratch"
    At the end of the song, the Artist meets a madman who he thinks killed Annabel, the Thespian.
