At a church's rusted Maria, offer up a prayer
The trembling that even steals away the light will not be forgiven
Even if you close your eyes, the completely forgotten boy
Will continue concealing traces of his sin on his wrists

Keep whispering to your mother's rotting corpse
And lose the bouquet you're holding and your past form
That gentle look is like that of an innocent girl
Only looking at the unchanging time

"There is no pain... don't cry anymore..."
"If you want peace... I'll grant it as you've wished..."
"There is no fear... come close..."
"So that you can be untainted... I'll take it all away from you..."
Now there is no one else who can save you
There now, close your eyes

"There is no pain... don't cry anymore..."
"If you want peace... I'll grant it as you've wished..."
"There is no fear... come close..."
"So that you can be untainted... gently go to sleep here"

"There is no anguish... don't cry anymore..."
"Don't run away... I'll forgive you for everything..."
"There is no end... come close..."
"So that you can be untainted... I'll take it all away from you..."

I'll never forget about you
There now, close your eyes

    General Commentone wonders upon first reading what exactly he thinks and what degree of sarcasm he is using. it's a pretty angry, rough and overall violent song. So I'd say he's pretty angry about what he's singing. Then again, this is life.. redemption. forgiveness - who wouldn't be angry?

    as a christian i know exactly where he's coming from... (i wasn't always one) and... it's pretty sad... despairing, does he wish it was true or is he just discarding the last traces of remorse for the birds?

    all i know is, he wrote a song about it. go Gackt.
