Track Name: Holy Heretic
Just the other day an angel stopped me for a speculation
100 years have come and gone, without an ounce of levity.
10 score and 9 within these bones, but with a heart of a lion
She once did this, so can you, so there’s no mistaking


You might just have to hold death by it’s hand, just to get the picture


Hey Archangel Michael, I notice you’ve got nothing to say
Gotta an arrow in my chest, but I guess, you thought I was just dressin fancy
Tearin through the gates of fear whoa oh oh, gotta get another overthrow
These chains are breakin, over and over and over, I’m your Holy Heretic.


Watch as I sing the doctrine of death, with this metal in my hand
Mistaken youth call forth my rage, as I lead the fray of man who’s shiny armor
shakes around him, (but you wanted that crown.)


Sometimes you gotta hold death by it’s hand, just to see the picture


Hey Archangel Michael, I notice you’ve got nothing to say
Gotta an arrow in my chest, but I guess, you thought I was just dressin fancy
Tearin through the gates of fear whoa oh oh, gotta get another overthrow
These chains are breakin, over and over and over, I’m your Holy Heretic.
Track Name: A Different Shade
I see you look at me, in your shadow’s wake of night
Now it’s haunting me, when infernal truth escapes your laughter
How exactly, is the dead supposed to sleep around you
When the light within, is a different shade a different shade


Your tears they burn like holy water, it tears this dark heart right in two
You know I’d walk in the lake of fire, if it meant you don’t turn away
Your eyes they cut me like the rising sun, I can’t escape it’s memory
I hear you cry through your mask of sorrows, your soul is haunting me.


I feel your presence here, though the distance weighs on me
Now I drown in fear, as the sands of time keep falling faster
How exactly, is this crow supposed to sing without you
Shine your light again, oh a different shade, it’s a different shade.


Your tears they burn like holy water, it tears this dark heart right in two
You know I’d walk in the lake of fire, if it meant you don’t turn away
Your eyes they cut me like the rising sun, I can’t escape it’s memory
I hear your cry through your mask of sorrows, your soul is haunting me.
Track Name: Our Love Has No Goodbyes
Treading miles in noontide, horizon drawing near
Chains of youth have left me, now footsteps lay in tears
Seen the Sun a thousand times, watch the moon cross through the night
Weight of souls on my shoulder, I must reach within me.


Hold me close for the last time, the light is nearly here,
Feel this heartbeat, my love, it beats for you without fear.
When you close your eyes, you will find me in your dreams, baby.
Our love has no goodbyes, touch my face and remember me.


Ask me for my honor, I give without a doubt
Understanding my love, to precious lives devout
Watch the disappearing Sun, hear the fright of those who run
Weight of souls on my shoulder, I must take death within me.


Have you seen the chaos, have you seen the tearing pool
Is your blood like the desert sand, cold and heartless, mindless monstrous
Must you really cross the line, to see the beast before you.
