The Heaven of Hell

Angels and devils
The heaven of hell
Choirs of anger
Rage gracing the knell

Love them and leave them
Destroying their heart
Search for the light
But don't look very far

Power of ages
That pours through the youth
Wisdom abrading
The absence of truth

Where do the flowers grow?
A babe in arms grown old
Dig another shallow grave
And suffer from the cold

Pain of sunshine lancing eyes
That live within the dark
Inner light, awakening
The piercing of a heart

Tell them what they wish to hear
Don't ever dare their wrath
Tunnel deep into the ground
And take the darker path

Never overcome the fear
And dare to turn around
No matter that it's drawing near
Arising from the ground

Mouth the words of someone else
Pretend it is your prayer
Rationale and reason fading
Like the golden grail

Vast the world, so full of wonder
Beckoning to you
And yet you choose to hide
Within that awful, empty room

Wanderlust cannot defeat
The pain that grows inside
So busy asking questions
While believing in the lies

Angels and devils
The heaven of hell
Choirs of anger
Rage gracing the knell

Your soul abides
So deep inside
Rising high
It blows it all away...
