All The SaintsOld Testament Wrath

All the Saints

to him that has eyes let him see

nothing has a value
til theres everything to lose
and nothing has a cost til the price you pay
I dont know when its gonna fall
but I seen its back will break
I dont remember now what I saw
man they crucified me
I seek that countenance of God his holy face to guide me
gotta ask him what it take to make the angels stop crying man cause they crying
for all the saints to lie broken on heaven in Earth
the ground consumes our fathers
while the Devil guards his worth
when all the saints lie broken on heaven in Earth
you can lift their eyes to heaven, but can you make their prayers be heard

to him that has ears let him hear

Substituted values for heavens that we choose
the way we groom our children just to tolerate you
I dont see how its gonna stand cause I can see it falling
its raining down around my knees
pull me outta this ruble
and the ashes soaking in from the tears that them angels are crying
cause they crying while god sings
to all the saints that lie broken on heaven in Earth
from your dust a new messiah crawls
and to all the saints now broken on Heaven in Earth
give your judgement to their father
and the devil his own worth

all the lies all the days all the games that people play
all the hours we wander away from eternity while the angels cryin out

all the saints are broken on Heaven in Earth
repeat out...

Ooops that posted double Delrio biggrin.gif

The heavy metal guitar is on the background, and your voice is on the front, and that kinda reflects heavily on the recordings. Man, you badly need drums n bass

I like the first four lines but after that i lose the thread cauz if it's theologic i'd rather have it served with metaphores i can understand, here i don't get much of what you say, but i hear those words fit well in metal shredded guitars

Should work if the guitar was louder, but lyrically speaking, i'm not a fan.

I haven't listened, so this is purely a lyrical commentary.

I'm unsure about it. It seems to have focus placed in the wrong way, and I'm not sure how else to explain that. Negative lyrics, fine, without being whiney. But it seems to lack purpose, or at least the purpose is obscured through a tendency towards vague slogans or phrases as opposed to definite language.

I think it needs a more linear approach in that it could benefit from a clearer sense of narrative.

As far as the lyrics go I completely agree with Graeme, and I also agree with Dorio that you should get some drums and bass, that could really help.

As a rough recording though, it's not too bad. I like your voice and I like the guitar parts, they're cool. But have you ever thought about posting your songs on soundclick? Soundclick makes it really easy for people to hear your songs without actually having to wait to download them. You should check it out.

the rolling stones did it MUCH better with "sympathy for the devil" circa 1967. re-write, re-think. when its theological, you've gotta have a counter-argument to the accepted norm.

it just seems like you'e lost in a real deep philosophical argument which is only taken seriously if it at least adheres to (loosely) to the theory of falsificationism.
You should go outside, the graphics are amazing...
