All Those Words You Never Heard

The tide, she turns
And drifts away
The fire, it burns
And all’s aflame
The priest, he prays
But does no good
The sinner sins
As sinners should

And God will rain wrath down from Heaven
But I’ll be content here on Earth
And though he screams out his vengence
He’ll always give me wide berth

He says all those who fear me know praise
And all those who don’t feel the flames
For all of the proud will perish
And the righteous will spin in their graves

The Earth, she cries
Out in her pain
The blood, it flows
Out from the vein
The rain, it falls
On heads hung low
And Hell, it’s pits
Are down below

And Satan will let loose his demons
But I’ll be safe in my room
And though Lord brings sword and judgement
I’ll always escape my doom

He says all those who live good, be saved
And all those who don’t need to pray
For all of those proud will perish
And the righteous will spin in their graves

The Lord, he spoke
Upon deaf ears
The sky, she spouted
A flood of tears
And all of those tears
Never were cried
And all of those martyrs
Never did die

The Son, he rose from the cross
A bit bloody but not at all dead
And all those words you never heard
Still they resound in your head

He says all those who know are brave
And all those who don’t fall from grace
All of those proud will perish
And the righteous will spin in their graves

All Those Words You Never Heard

Artist's Description

This one runs a little weird because its a song, so without the melody its a little rough. I also don’t want to offend anyone, I am not religious at all and some things may seem sacreligious, but I wanted to write my own kind of hymn. The judeo-christian archetypes in this work or just that, metaphors for my own spirituality. I wouldn’t normally be so heavy on the rhyme and repetition, but it seemed appropriate.
