“She’ll come slowly rising, on the air”…

She found the letter…
And read the words…

She fell to the ground…
Her cry scattered the birds…

She laid there in shock…
Just couldn’t take it all in…

She didn’t know what to do…
Didn’t know where to begin…

She was enveloped in sadness…
Became shrouded in black…

She couldn’t ever accept…
He was never coming back…

She became so isolated…
Felt so goddamned trapped…

She was blinded by the pain…
Knew she would never adapt…

She loved him so much…
But felt so empty inside…

She craved his smell…
Needed his hand to guide…

She felt so alone…
Like life had no meaning…

She became a shadow…
Only seen in the evening…

She could not see…
Knew the silence would last…

She couldn’t move on…
Was entombed in the past…

She had believed in forever…
And dreamt of growing old…

She could not cope…
As depression took hold…

She lost the will to live…
And decided to get out…

She swallowed the pills…
Without hesitation or doubt…

Then she found him again…
As he sat waiting for her…

The couple finally reunited…
In Death’s cold, hazy blur…

The angels won’t save you…
They’ve covered their eyes…

And blocked their ears…
So they can’t hear your lies…

They know what you’re doing…
They watch from a far…

They are keeping a record…
Each and every little scar…

Every time you deceive…
Each mark your soul…

They know all the details…
And the size of the hole…

The one that’s being dug…
Especially for you…

Your final resting place…
When this life is through…

As you won’t fly with angels…
Or sit on the right hand…

There’ll be no Vestal Virgins…
There’ll be no promised land…

Your fate has been written…
By you and you alone…

The depths of Hell awaits…
Chained to Satan’s throne…

Forever to be reminded…
Of what you have done…

Your crimes all replayed…
All your dark sins rerun…

In a perpetual playback…
For your eyes only…

Showing you the impact…
On the weak and the lonely…

Those you have hurt…
And stabbed in the back…

Those lives you ruined…
And pushed into the black…

Because no one can save you…
You’re the one they despise…

The one who is marked…
A sinner with snake eyes…

“Our heartbeats becoming slow”…

The big city boy and
the small town girl…

Lust filled the senses,
as the whirlwind whirled…

Under star filled skies,
it was laced with mystery…

Playing in the darkness,
fulfilling fantasies…

Revealing to each other,
dark forbidden secrets…

Trying not to contemplate,
any morning after regrets…

That would surely follow,
in the cold light of day…

But until that moment,
in each other’s arms they lay…

Making a commitment,
to end it all together…

A simple suicide pact,
that would last forever…

And when the time came,
they would find a place…

To lay with each other and
hold each other’s gaze…

Leave behind the madness,
begin a new journey…

Which would be eternal,
one that would see…

Them together forever,
floating amongst the stars…

As light as a feather,
no baggage and no scars…

Just two souls colliding,
a pair of hearts in love…

Refusing to be chained,
finding freedom high above…

But until that sweet moment,
no one can ever know…

As this love is forbidden,
it belongs in the shadows…

Speeding through the water…
Cutting like a knife…

Leaving behind all troubles…
The memories and the strife…

And constant little reminders…
Of the dark path of regret…

Whilst dancing with distraction…
That’s been so hard to forget…

To an island lost in time…
Where no one knows your face…

Surrounded by total strangers…
Living life at a slower pace…

Who take you as they find you…
No trace of your history…

Where any mistakes made…
Remain a total mystery…

Out of sight, out of mind…
A chance to lock the box…

Focus on the here and now…
Allow the past to be lost…

Wiped from your memory…
Like some bad. bad dream…

That interrupts your sleep…
Making you silently scream…

Wishing it never happened…
Knowing you can’t be cleansed…

As all the deep dark secrets…
Became sins that simply stained…

The inside of your mind…
And deep within your soul…

Etched inside your spirit…
A sadness you can’t console…

But on this tiny island…
There is a chance to heal…

Pretend it never happened…
Remember how to feel…

Be reminded what it was…
To carry pure innocence…

A feeling so very powerful…
A feeling so damn intense…

The little bird glides…
Upon broken wings…

Burdened by pain…
And unable to sing…

Not able to focus…
On the world around…

Her ears are deaf…
Can’t hear a sound…

Consumed by the black…
That covers her eyes…

Distorts all her senses…
She’s blind as she flies…

Into the huge storm…
That rages ahead…

Battling her demons…
Who want her dead…

Struggling to find…
A sanctuary shelter…

A safe place to land…
Someone to help her…

To tend her wounds…
See her though the night…

Ease all her worries…
Listen to her plight…

Someone she can trust…
With her inner fears…

Hold her so very tight…
And dry all her tears…

Instead she is left…
So cold and all alone…

Far far away from…
Where she calls home…

And the one she left…
Who broke her heart…

Leaving her needing…
To make a fresh start…

Where she can begin…
To rebuild and live…

Never, ever intending…
To look back and forgive…

“But in your dreams, whatever they be”…

She knows the words…
But not their meaning…

Hears them whilst sleeping…
Amidst all the screaming…

That soundtracks the night…
When she closes her eyes…

Slipping into the nightmare…
That makes her cry…

The one where she’s lost…
And so very alone…

In the middle of nowhere…
Running far from her home…

And the ones she loves…
Those she holds dear…

They cannot find her…
And they’ll never hear…

Her desperate shouts…
Echoing through the night…

No one can save her…
She is alone in this fight…

Against her dark demons…
Who cause her distress…

And haunt her nights…
Whilst clawing at her dress…

In the midst of blackness…
Rendering her sight blind…

As she runs in circles…
So desperate to find…

Some hope of escape…
A tiny chink of light…

That would finally bring…
An end to this fight…

But the words keep coming…
So softly spoken…

And the beast with wings…
Has now awoken…

She hides out of sight…
And silently screams…

But she’ll never be free…
Within this poisonous dream…

Heart in your mouth…

Line in the sand…

It took this moment…

To truly understand…

Looking up to the sun…

In a blood red sky…

She infected your brain…

Now you question why…

Rewinding the words…

You thought she said…

Trying to stop the visions…

Playing inside your head…

That leave you gasping…

Nauseated and sick…

How did you miss it…

Her sleight of hand trick…

That stole your heart…

And left you reeling…

Down on the floor…

Praying and kneeling…

Trying to work out…

What is your next move…

Hoping the Gods…

Will begin to sooth…

The pain now felt…

Deep inside your heart…

The total destruction…

As she ripped apart…

Your aching soul…

With such great ease…

On her sinful mission…

To simply fucking tease…

And missing the signs…

You fell hook and line…

Never saw it coming…

Blinded by her shine…

The glint and glimmer…

Of the fool’s gold…

That’s left you broken…

Bruised, battered and cold…

The underground killer…

With death in his eyes…

An invisible evil…

A perfect disguise…

No one ever sees him…

Or gives a second glance…

His victims are random…

And don’t stand a chance…

As he selects the weak…

Then stalks his prey…

Timing his attacks…

And in minutes they lay…

Dead on the ground…

In a pool of warm blood…

And as he walks away…

The feeling of power floods…

Pulsates through his veins…

Leaving him so elated…

This addictive emotion…

That he alone has created…

And needs to be fed…

When night time falls…

As his thirst rises…

And he hears the call…

Of the cold hearted killer…

That lives deep inside…

Intent on stealing souls…

And enjoying the ride…

On a fairground attraction…

But never paying the price…

Just intent on the killing…

He doesn’t think twice…

As the underground killer…

Has perfected the art…

Of killing them softly…

Then removing their hearts…

Before moving on silently…

Towards his next kill…

Empowered by the glory…

Entranced by the thrill…

So, you didn’t make it…
Welcome to Hell…

Make yourself comfortable…
This is your own private cell…

Wrap this round your neck…
You’ve earned this chain…

A link for each of your sins…
You’ll experience them again…

One by One by One…
In technicoloured glory…

Each and every mistake…
In your sad, twisted story…

Because you never listened…
Never heeded the warnings…

You did not believe…
Just partied on till morning…

Thinking you were clever…
That you wouldn’t pay the price…

You did what you wanted…
Without any kind of sacrifice…

Doing it your own way…
And tarnishing your soul…

Did you think you were wise…
That you were in control…

And now you are here…
Beginning to perspire…

There’s no rest for the wicked…
As you burn in Hell’s fire…

Whilst the Demons dance…
To the Devil’s own groove…

They’re your eternal jailers…
Who’ll watch your every move…

As you are now damned…
For the rest of eternity…

And you will be broken…
You’ll be forced to your knees…

Living in Satan’s palace…
And getting sliced by his knife…

He’ll make you plead to go back…
But it’s to late to change your life…

“This could be Heaven”…

So, you finally made it…
Welcome to Heaven…

You hit the jackpot…
Seven, Seven, Seven…

This is the Promised Land…
Of milk and golden honey…

No need for any fear…
No need for any money…

Just relax and sit back…
Kick off your shoes…

Gaze at the rainbows…
Enjoy the stunning views…

As Six vestal virgins…
Wait on your every whim…

Whist you lounge at the pool…
Or jump in for a swim…

Because this is your prize…
The hope and the glory…

All you have earned…
Throughout your life’s story…

You are finally rewarded…
For a life without sin…

Walking that fine line…
Not letting your demons win…

And all that you wished for…
Is now eternally yours…

No need for purgatory…
We’ve unlocked the doors…

All that faith and trust…
You held deep in your heart…

Is now rewarded and repaid…
And this is just the start…

Of your eternal paradise…
Where dreams come true…

And the purest souls collide…
Mingling with other religions too…

Like one big happy family…
Now they are all dead…

You can now sit there…
And rest your weary head…
