You have become a malicious liar that breaths for attention,
Playing charades, wearing the head of a lamb. My days consumed by nights of
You.
Howling at the moon as if you were wounded, but no,
You're the one showing teeth, ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you
Cry wolf.
Howling at the moon, but no, you're showing teeth.
We know. You're ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you cry wolf.

8, 064 hours of conspiracies. 200 months which brings me 17 years of lies
And betrayal.
The truth. Never seen. Never told. Never known.
You'll never tell the truth. Never seen. Never heard. You'll never tell the
Truth.
All I want is the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth. (Oh...)

Queen of hearts. Queen of hearts.
But you are the deceiver with a lying tongue and matching lips.
My heart thirsts for vengeance, but my Father has tought me forgiveness.
If I had not decided to follow Him, I'd devour you like a lion, leaving
Your bones out to dry.
I'd put you through the same hell you put me through, pouring out
Conspiracies and lies, (and lies)
But this world will remember me for all that I've done and all that I'll
Be.

The victim in me is dead. I am reborn. The victim in me is dead. I am
Reborn.
So even though you call me self-righteous and call my beloved treacherous,
There is one thing to take away:

Leveler, make level the road for the righteous.
Leveler, make level the road for the righteous.

I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love.
Love.
I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love.
Love. Love.
I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love.
Love. Love...

    I believe that this song refers to a victim of munchausen by proxy coming to faith in christ and learning to forgive his mother. As for my evidence:.
    "my heart thirst for vengeance, but my father has shown m e forgiveness. If i had not decided to follow him i'd devour you like a lion. " the whole god forgiving thing.
    "17 years of lies and betrayl" because that's how long most people live with their mother the I assume that's who he's forgiving.
    "howling at the moon a if you were wounded, but no you're showing your teeth, and feeding on newborns" "playing charades wearing the head of a lamb while my days are costumed by night of you" if you read in to this you get munchausen by proxy.

    I think this song is about fellatio gone wrong. We find a lover in the act, "howling at the moon", but things take a turn for the worst when his partner starts "showing teeth". Suddenly, the lover realizes his "queen of hearts" is really a "deceiver" with a "lying tongue. " then the lover wishes he could reciprocate using his own teeth, "[devouring] you like a lion" and putting her "through the same hell you put me through. " ultimately, his christianity saves him and he forgives her for using teeth.

    This song is simply amazing andthe queen of hearts (Judith) used her charm to take sides with an intimate friend of the Holofornes, but she did not really like him. She then turned on him and beheaded him so that she could let Israel counter attack the Assyrians. What he means is that he doesn't need to charm and trick his way into God's love like she did with the man, God's love is eternal and true. That's why when he says "I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love"
