Track Name: CryGods
the gods are crying and the clouds are blowing overhead
the gathering in black for the mourning of the dead
rain falling in torrents bringing life to the ground
no way to break the feelings to which i am bound

a single black dress flows whispfully in the wind
the woman underneath her heart as black as sin
no way to understand the feelings she has found
no way to break the feelings to which she is bound
Track Name: A Touch of Heaven
understand, can't you see
don't you know the fire in me
burning flesh, boiling blood
take it away, let me dream

crying and screaming for a touch of heaven
yelling and dying want a touch of heaven
all i want, all i want is a touch of heaven
only you you can give me a touch of heaven

mind screaming, lying alone
body dying, turned to stone
release me from torture, dreaming a living hell
can't you tell, all i need is a touch of heaven

touch the earth
want to touch the sky
need a touch of heaven right now
Track Name: Dark Splintered Heart
my mouth opened by a scream
my body bound in chains
my soul corrupted by darkness
my heart filled with pain
my eyes burned with images
my ears ringing with bells
my stomach taken by nausea
my hands pierced with nails

body to body, fear to fear
eye to eye, tear to tear
body to body, pain to pain
mouth to mouth, again and again...

all that i wanted, all that i could
of your deep dark splintered heart
i do what i know, i do what i should
dear god don't tear me apart

my eyes saw your troubles
my mouth spoke your words
my ears heard your screams
my ideas destroyed your world

body to body, fear to fear
eye to eye, tear to tear
body to body, pain to pain
mouth to mouth, again and again...

all that i wanted, all that i could
of your deep dark splintered heart
i do what i know, i do what i should
dear god don't tear me apart

all that you wanted, all that you could
see the pain in my eyes
drive your anger into my soul
don't know the reasons why

all that i wanted, all that i could
of your deep dark splintered heart
i do what i know, i do what i should
dear god don't tear me apart
Track Name: Heavenly Air
she broke away in the middle of her speech
and she flees from the light
she turned away from the sight of man
fleeing though the night

midway between heaven and earth
so much with its top towards heavenly air
so much with its roots towards the earth
so much with its top towards heavenly air

half dead in her bosom
she embraces her offspring
and three times she erected herself
and three times she fell
