lyrics

DAYS OF HELL

Amidst beauty and bounty
The betrayal was inevitable
Yet disturbing nonetheless
And of what effect are my prayers

Quod me nutrit me destruit

Simple concepts that shall never come to be
Words I cannot say aloud
Thoughts that will not relent
Torture that inequitably burns my soul

Scars layering and pain unrelenting
Spirituality and heresy
Seasons of irony a moment of clarity

Monuments of doubt

Malevolent blooms and thorns
Bitter springs eternal
Anthems of the apostate belay hopes of fools

Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am afflicted
Terrors and nightmares
Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am tormented
My dreams and despair

My days of hell in the Garden of Eden

In this idyllic garden
Promises and poisoned fruit
With each sunrise and setting
The serpent mocks and laughs

Quod me nutrit me destruit

Man placed eastward in Eden
Chaos spawned in consequence
Demons savage those I love
I bleed alone

The heavens and earth accomplished
Majesty resplendent and yet I
Drink again from fount of disappointment

Monuments of doubt

Inane thoughts and futile rituals
Cascades of hypocrisy
Hopelessness and festering wounds

Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am afflicted
Terrors and nightmares
Paradise denied
Paradise denied me
I am tormented
My dreams and despair

My days of hell in the Garden of Eden
