This book of love is a final gift, dramatic in its virtue
It's a beating heart I made for you
Ten razors buried bones
And a kiss that tastes like violence
Blue sand shadows look from above, yeah
We're not alone
The dead will rise again

Show me why we won't let go and we still
must pray
This is our lovers' requiem
As wings unfold, just breathe for me...

(just breathe, just breathe, just breathe for me)

In freaks below, a savage plot of golden dust
And chariots of liars, a course of waiting
for existence
Sin's bleeding cast has struck a nerve
Sin's bleeding hand has filled the lakes
For you and me a war has just begun
A sharpened sword, ice and cuts
And laughing dolls, tonight they live again

Show me why we won't let go and we still
must pray
This is our lovers' requiem
As wings unfold, just breathe for me...
Oh heaven's gate will cast a shadow

Truth, forgiveness still and cold a secret little garden
she built
Sold for beauty in disguise, sweet hide away from
never, from the never never
Now... the devil has stolen the key
It tastes like skin and bone, fire

    General CommentThis song is about Lucifer's rebellion and the war between Heaven and Hell. As well as the love between an Angel and Vampire.

    Once again this is a song sung by an Angel to HIS Vampire lover. Yes, I think the guy is actually the Angel and the Girl is the Vampire.

    This book of love is a final gift, dramatic in its virtue
    It's a beating heart I made for you
    Ten razors buried bones
    And a kiss that tastes like violence
    Blue sand shadows look from above, yeah
    We're not alone
    The dead will rise again

    'It's a beating heart I made for you' -- Seeing as she's a vampire (apart of the walking dead) her heart never beats. & the title alone confirms that it's a song for someone who's died (requiem def. (Music, other) any piece of music composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person or persons) so it's used as a sort of metaphor.

    Show me why we won't let go and we still
    must pray
    This is our lovers' requiem
    As wings unfold, just breathe for me...

    The angel is trying to save his dying love, and is searching for a sign that God is truly merciful ('...and why we still must pray') showing the his faith in God is wavering

    In freaks below, a savage plot of golden dust
    And chariots of liars, a course of waiting
    for existence
    Sin's bleeding cast has struck a nerve
    Sin's bleeding hand has filled the lakes
    For you and me a war has just begun
    A sharpened sword, ice and cuts
    And laughing dolls, tonight they live again

    This illustrates Lucifer and his followers plotting to destroy the 'key' also known as Earth thus destroying human beings, since he despised the reason why they were created in the first place. ('In freaks below, a savage plot of gold and dust; And chariots of liars -> fallen angels)
    & now a war has begun between the Angels and Demons making the Angel and Vampire "enemies"

    Show me why we won't let go and we still
    must pray
    This is our lovers' requiem
    As wings unfold, just breathe for me...
    Oh heaven's gate will cast a shadow

    The last line ('Oh, Heaven's gate will cast a shadow') is pretty simple. The gates of Heaven are opening as the Archangel Michael lead's God's Army from Heaven to Earth in order to battle the Devil and his Demons.

    Truth, forgiveness still and cold a secret little garden
    she built
    Sold for beauty in disguise, sweet hide away from
    never, from the never never
    Now... the devil has stolen the key
    It tastes like skin and bone, fire

    It took me a bit to figure out what this was talking about, but I think this is solely about the Angel's Vampire Lover and her past. He's telling her the truth about her past and who she was. '...a secret little garden' is most likely referring to the Garden of Eden and the Vampire was once Eve. The devil tricked her into eating the forbidden fruit, telling her to disregard God and saying that she would in fact live if she ate it and not die -- referring to the tree now as the 'tree of life' and making her now immortal and cast away from God (hence the vampirism)

    The 'key' that's being referred to in the second to last line is talking about Life itself. Because of the Devil and the war, Earth could no longer sustain life, thus leading to him taking the "key"

    General Commentwow, i'm surprised there's only been three comments for the title song! it's a great song, too... this is where the 'story' gets exciting - the war between heaven and hell starts. the whole thing reminds me a little of romeo and juliet.
