The Kiss Of Babylon (The Sins)



Twisted ways blackened nights

Sin apon Sin, gone is the light

Doom shall befall them all

A downward spiral they shall fall

The Three, all this they see

As they try to pass God's decree



Worshiping the gods
That demand lives and sacrifice

None but the blood of infants will suffice

Fallen sparrows fall as one into a grave

They are the souls of living men
That could not be saved



“Walking the land we see

The sins of flesh and spirit flow

Bodies entwined a serpent's

Lethal kiss of venom is bestowed

Our lord watches them fall –

He stands above you all”



“Son slaying father

A Cain's mark upon us all

Babylon's rising, cast from heaven

We see the angels fall

When will the heavens be alight

The seasons will re-unite”



אהבת הדסה על לבבי בקשרה

ואני בתוך גולה פעמי צוללים

לו יש רשות לי אעלה אתחברה

תוך שערי ציון אשר הם נהללים

Translation:

My heart is bound with love to the Holy Land,

But my feet are sinking in the depth of exile

When will he give me leave to go up and make my home

Within the extolled gates of Jerusalem?
