Lyrics: 

Bleeding Heart Paradox

I dread my desire, the magnetic thrall luring me closer and closer to it

the endless chasm within, pulling me apart by its want

Deafening call from the depth as sirens chanted for Odysseus

Nailed to the soil, to rise above, trapped between two natures

the body's made as a tool to gather the Heavenly knowledge not a machine of ardent flesh

To only seek pleasure and frenzy with

Longing for your caress I stray from the flock, bittersweet tenderness

That fills me up and shatters me till I face the bleeding heart paradox

Innocence pleas beneath the limbs, writhing and open for the pain,

Aching for sainthood shred down to pieces before the world, I'm seeking out to be hurt for being bad

Down

To

The

Core

Longing for your caress I stray from the flock, bittersweet tenderness

That fills me up and shatters me till I face the bleeding heart paradox

Lift this heavy cross I have to bear

Free me from the stigma of fighting against myself

Redeem me into innocence I have forlorn

And teach me how to love without the yearning to be loved

Without love, what's the meaning of living life in libation

without love what's the purpose and the reason behind Incarnation

Teach me to love

Teach to live

Longing for your caress I stray from the flock, bittersweet tenderness

That fills me up and shatters me till I face, until I solve, the bleeding heart paradox

is like a rock oratorio taking the listener deeper and deeper into the dark descent from loneliness to exile.

I like the extreme stereo separation here.
Really dramatic and atmospheric lyrics and vocal delivery.
So much going on here; relentless and driving music.
Like a rock opera in Hell.
Excellent work, as usual.
You know, your music is for me the perfect representation of some paintings by Wayne Barlowe;

The theatricality of it all is enthralling, but mixed with the modern bitcrushed sounds it makes for a unique individual sound that, by it's sheer delight at it's "unusualness", invites you into the protagonist's inner struggle in a way that a pure genre piece (joining the dots) couldn't. Good stuff. Really enjoyed.
Thanks so much for your very kind words earlier! Smile

Great sense of drama, really like the slow singing on top of those pounding drums, gives a nice contrast, the ending vocals are well timed.

This is an excellent lyric, and love the performance too. There's a great contrast with the slow and very dynamic vocal and that insane music. That pic fuzzy posted is very appropriate as well. Couldn't help but stare at that the entire time Biggrin

appropriately tagged to, when I think of Alternative I don't think of folk that just got a little noisy Biggrin , and you could really qualify this as a rock opera either. great stuff!

Sounds big. Once turmoil is a more than nagging factor in life, the wish to overcome it is clear and focused. A quest for the pure whilst living in some sort of hell.. that's what this rock opera is making me write.
