"Hell Is Where The Heart Is (The Gospel Of Tomas)"


Confide in me and tell me
Why the worthless never die,
And tell to me my darling
Why we cast our pearls to swine,
Please come to me and show me
Why the dead refuse to bleed,
Why nothing lasts forever
And the past can't be retrieved.

I am the alpha, I am the omega
I am the beginning and the end,
I am the answer, I am the enigma
I am the flame which never ends.

No love will ever save you
No kisses are too deep,
No cross will give you answers
Or satisfy your needs.

No faith will give you pleasure
That takes away the pain,
But hate will give you meaning
And make you feel again.

I am the alpha, I am the omega
I am the beginning and the end,
I am the answer, I am the enigma
I am the flame which never ends.

(I believe in the life eternal,
As promised to us by our Lord, Jesus Christ.)
{That is good... for believing what you do
We confer upon you a rare gift these days
...A martyr's death.}

Are we living just for pleasure
Or for reasons yet unknown?
Let us realize our secrets
When we reach into my soul.

Let my dreams be remembered
When I lay down not to sleep,
Hell is where the heart is,
It's a place for you and me.

I am the alpha, I am the omega
I am the beginning and the end,
I am the answer, I am the enigma
I am the flame which never ends.

    General Comment"But hate will give you meaning and make you feel again" sums up the song (for me at least). I always feel a little guilty for both listening to this song and enjoying this song. It's dark, but it's supposed to be dark. And sometimes 'dark' is where one is at the moment.

    General CommentIt's about the fact that life has no meaning and and the world is as random, non-deterministic and fucked up as can be. However, that doesn't mean that life is not worth living, as in the middle of all this pointlessness the only real truth becomes the moment, thus swapping the initial existentialist resolve with a hedonistic one.
