“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…

“Sinner, I have never learned”…

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…

“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…
