This abomination
Won't see the end of days
Sit throne of lies, torn
By the voice on high

Death was only a dream
Not devastating disaster
The rights of passage
The past that we can't alter

Fuck you, you
And the horse that you rode in on
Just sit there
And be silent as the grave

You've come out this time
Smelling just like roses
I sit there, watch while I drink my wine

The weight of your sins
And the evil beneath us
Will surely drag you down

The axe shall fall
On the one-winged angel
Breaking the spell
Would you break this fall?
For he, who sins against his kind
The axe shall fall

Alright, alright

With a hollow heart and hollow eyes
I cry from your cross, serpents in disguise
Hearts of distrust is what he's despised
I sit there, watch while I drink my wine

The weight of your sins
And the evil beneath us
Will surely drag you down

The axe shall fall
On the one-winged angel
Breaking the spell
Would you break this fall?
For he, who sins against his kind
The axe shall fall
Alright, alright

The axe shall fall
On the one-winged angel tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight
