Hello, these are lyrics to six songs I wrote for my band. If anyone has time, I would love feedback. Hope all is well.

1) Heavenly Hypocrisy

To deny someone love is a cruel torture
But in a selfish quest for eternal paradise
Fragile souls have to keep their morals straight
To avoid the wrath of a loving god

So with heavenly hypocrisy
They carve hearts out of chests
And leave them to decay
On the beaches of mortal sin

Beaches where the sand is stained red
And crimson colored waves gently kiss the shore
Where vultures pick at the remains of shattered romance
And the sour fragrance of broken dreams pollutes the air

Far away-
From shattered romance and broken dreams
Fragile souls bathe in heavenís radiance
Where they drink fine wine, and dance the night away

Far away-
From the pain and suffering caused by discrimination
Fragile souls listen to a holy man
As he makes a toast, to equality

2) Venomous Counterfeit Angels

Daily homicide led to my broken heart suicide
Tortured nights, but no one could see how I felt inside
With my intestines wrapped around your heart, I just couldn't digest your loss
So like a broken dream-
I began to fade away

Cause you told me goodnight, then stabbed me in the back
You told me goodnight, then stabbed me in the back

I've loved counterfeit angels
And had my intestines replaced with rattlesnakes
Painful slithering memories keep me trapped, in your poison embrace

Cause you told me goodnight, then stabbed me in the back
You told me goodnight, then stabbed me in the back

When you cast me out of your heart
You created all the venomous demons I can't exorcise

3) Jade Green Eyes

A carnal pilgrimage
To the kingdom of pleasure
Where morals disappear
Beneath vanity and lust

Jade green eyes
And serpent like thighs
Pulling me in-
Deeper and deeper
Pulling me down-
Into the flames

Angels cry in sorrow-
As our souls descend to the second circle
Among demons and lost souls
I taste your cherry red lips
And we make love

Angels shed tears-
For those lost to sins of the flesh
Angels shed tears-
For those condemned, for crawling from bed to bed
For slithering from lover to lover

Angels wept-
But in the fiery passion of your kiss
We've burned those Sunday Words
And spread the ashes along the path
Of immoral romance

4) Shedding Skin

Her jade green eyes are focused
Like a coiled rattlesnake
Ready to strike its prey

Her cherry red lips are hungry
Like an ancient vampire
Who's slept for centuries
And awakes to hunt once more

Her forked purple tongue
Is strangely sweet and seductive
Flickering in and out, with malevolence
But I don't care

Although each venomous kiss
Brings me closer to the reaper
And each sinful embrace
Brings my soul closer to hell
I don't care

Because being with her
Is like shedding skin
Reincarnated by lust
And born again

Outside of heaven's gates
Our souls are carelessly discarded
Like broken wedding vows

Our hearts tossed aside to decay
Like morals when they're inconvenient

5) No Shame (In a Devil's Kiss)

I'd rather sleep with devils
In seductive red lingerie
Then live by their standards
Conform and obey

I'd rather taste luscious apples
From the tree of desire
Then live my life fearful
Of brimstone and fire

Cause darling your legs open
And heaven's gates close

I'd rather feel carnal pleasures
And be labeled defiant
Then let my soul wither
Forever longing, but silent

Cause darling your legs open
And heaven's gates close

As I stand before heaven's judgment
You can carve my heart out
But paradise is not lost to me

Because what's wrong with passion and ecstasy -
Between consenting adults?

6) Kisses Indicate

I can leave the place where time stops
Just outside of the second circle
I can leave the place where time stops
Heavenly paradise vanishes

Censored screams whispered
They're spectacular with the vernacular of confusion
Kisses indicate the illusion
There's correlations between your lacerations

Watch the sunrise
And fall asleep in loving arms
Cherry kisses at sunset
And wake me from my dreams

Censored screams whispered
They're spectacular with the vernacular of confusion
Kisses indicate the illusion
There's correlations between your lacerations

And they all point towards a beautiful bride
In a gorgeous wedding dress
Whose hands are stained crimson
Because she holds the beating heart
Of a fallen angel

Thirteen Tigers

Walk up to the gate in the ancient wilderness
Seven cobras guard the sacred waterfall
Cross the wooden bridge to the mystic portal
Thirteen tigers guard the passage between realms

Step through the sands of time, to another life
See the threads of destiny, which connect your life
See the threads of fate, which connect us all
See how love can rise like the phoenix
From the ashes of violence and war

Journey through a kingdom of hypocrisy
Past the aristocracy, and the corrupt elegance
Past the theocracy, and the soothing eloquence

Arrive in a town of mysterious lunacy
Where no one has a shadow, or reflection
Where women dance naked, and cry redemption

When the final grain of sand falls from the hourglass
The reaper will laugh at your mea culpa
And your deathbed epiphany, to finally seize the day
For even the reaper cannot stop time
From eventually devouring us all

Mortality is melting away
Like a careless vampire
Who gets caught in the sunrise

The sorcerer is laughing
Cause the sky is falling
Memento Mori
A new day is calling
