Sigillum Diaboli
I can't see as I'm facing your pitiful lies
Don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh
I can't see through your eyes, bring your tears on me
I will lift the burden from your shoulders just to have killing
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh as well as I do
Oh as well as I do
Just as well as I do
Oh as well as I do
Oh as well as I do

So I'm your Christ to and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do
So I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Oh, so you've come from above
And you say you want it all
And I cut myself for your love
I'm killing myself for you, yes you

I can't see as I'm facing your pityful lies
Don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do
I'm your Christ and I want you
I just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do

Yes you do
Yes you do, my Darling
Yes you do, oh
Yes you do, oh my Love
So

    and you say you want to
    and I kill myself for your love
    I'm killing myself for you, yes you "

    Oh so you've come for more,
    And you say you want it all,
    And i cut myself for your love,
    I'm killing myself cause you yes you want more.

    General Commentactually youre both wrong, there is two versions of this song, Sigillum Diaboli,and stigmata diaboli, in th e song sigillum diaboli the above lyrics are correct and in stigmata diaboli, the lyrisc you wrote are correct,

    This world's not for us and you know it as well as i do ...
    Oh so you've come for more,
    And you say you want it all,
    And i cut myself for your love,
    I'm killing myself cause you yes you want more.
    thats the stigmata diaboli version

    General Commentin the U.S. their albums are released under the name HER.

    also I think I have some other corrections to the lyrics... these also seem to make more sense.

    "I can see you're sad facing your pitiful lies. You don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of life." Also sometimes it sounds like "your sad face and your pitiful eyes, don't have the strength to carry your heavy load of lies."

    "I will lift the burden from your shoulders, you just have to believe." Makes a whole hell of a lot more sense than "I will leave the body for your shoulder you just have to killing" especially in context with the Christ theme.

    After repeatedly listening to both versions of the song (sigillum/stigmata), I think he actually says "this world's not for us" in the chorus... although "this world's built for us" would make more sense considering the religious angle.

    General Commentya...this song is super hard to figure out the lyrics, and it does sound like "im your christ and i want you" but please trust me... it is...
    "im your christ to die on you,
    just woke up for hearse and you know it as well as I do"

    that is really it, it was on heartagram.com no matter how it sounds.

    other than that part it is pretty accurate.

    and HIM meant nothing by this song to be satanic or anything, they just thought it was fun to play, no meaning like "GAH!! WORSHIP SATAN!" or anything like that. but i have heard that it is about someone being possed by the devil.

    General CommentYeah hard lyrics, great song. I think it's about satan trying to tempt people into worshiping him, hence "I'm your Christ and I want you". I dunno, that's just what I think of when I listen to it.

    General Commentthe lyrics from the booklet read as:

    I cant see as im facing your pitiful lies dont have the strength to carry our heavy load of life Oh so youve come from above to say you want to and i kill myself for your love im killing myself for you im your christ to die on you i just woke up for hers and you know it as well as i do
