Dreams torn to pieces, broken like glass
hope faded away, withered like leaves
Not knowing is blessing, ignorance the only protection

Nothing is numbing my pain
The fragments of my faith
became the blade in my hand
just darkness my eyes see
pushed me to the end of all dead-end-streets

    General CommentTheImpalerTMX- You're an idiot first of all...if you have ever heard the band being interviewed you would know the word "Heaven" in the bands name has nothing to do with God or Jesus in the sense but they use it to describe all the fake paradises people create..Listen to there new cd to the song "Greatest Gift of God" then comment saying the band isn't religous

    General CommentIt sounds like he is comming to the end of his roads, the dead end streets, symbolic of no more paths to run without getting to God, because all paths lead to him, one way or the other. His dreams torn to pieces, and his hope faded away because there is no hope without our Messiah Jesus Christ. Nothing can numb your pain when faith, the very thing that brings men peace, become blades in your hand.

    General CommentSorry for double posting, but I couldn't help myself but to post the whole lyrics.... so here it goes:

    Numbing The Pain

    Dreams torn to pieces, broken like glass
    Hope faded away, withered like leaves
    Not knowing is blessing, ignorance the only protection

    Nothing is numbing my pain
    The fragments of my faith
    Became the blade in my hand
    Just darkness my eyes see
    Pushed me to the end of all dead-end-streets

    A curse - cannot lie to myself
    I'm doomed - cannot silence my heart
    Fear is the tool, conformity our medicine

    How can I smile as this age dies, like everybody else
    Dancing around the fire, that burns this world

    Cannot bend down, I would just break
    I hate myself for playing their game
    Parents poison their children, never teach them to question
    If it only wasn't for this certainty in me
    I am a giant in their tiny world

    General CommentThis song is not talking about coming to Jesus or whatever bullshit that is..This song is talking about how he just cant seem to find something to numb the pain that he holds in his heart. All he sees when he turns around is the inevitable death that persues everyone in life and its extremely depressing. Atleast..thats what I think when I hear this song..

    General CommentChristAlphaOmega, have you even ever listened to another Heaven Shall Burn song? Just go look at the lyrics to Implore the Darken Sky to see HSB's view on God and religion. In fact the lyrics to this song seem to be directed in the same kind of place. Oh, but they have the word Heaven in their name so they must be Jesus freaks... too bad the rest of their name says it shall burn.

    General CommentI don't see the the big fucking deal on whether the band is fucking religious or not although Counterweight is a more critical and sceptical outlook on religion. Other than that shit this is an excellent.
