I want to go to heaven
so I build myself a tower
a lonely pillar on the plain
for no one else but me
I want to taste the clouds
between my sharpened teeth
find out if I'm a demon
or a saint in disguise

I want to close the doors
behind my bleeding back
and dance among the shadows
for future glory's lost
I want to be religious
to walk among the chosen
and wear the mark of Cain
feel safe without regrets

i want a shining armor
to burn my hate and fury
until nothing still remains
but pure thoughts of peaceful minds

    General CommentA typical Covenant theme. Maybe the most well expressed of them all?

    It's about trying to be better than you can ever be. It's about setting up ideals that are too hard to achieve and trying to live with this knowledge.
    Just because we can't be perfect there is no excuse to be content with indifference.
