The forbidden Crime
Please listen to Join Me by masters of chant
Haunted by the past that never wants to lay to rest
I have let the world torment me, and sacrifice the best
Part of my existence: my heart my soul
And hence I have turned hollow and un-whole
And now I hear your calls telling me to join you
Yet with those words life does lose its hue
Truth to Be Told:
And the truth is, in this life I trust only a few
But tonight I am ready to die for love, for you
So let me speak those words of mine and cast
My body and soul into this fire of devotion, so vast
So now we unite into life and into death
And our souls can exist for once in the dark yet never in stealth
So will the world claim us insane as we let love’s flame burn?
Our souls, bodies, and mere existence, or will we be rewarded with disdain?
So if I say let us throw ourselves into the fire will you follow?
Or will we endure the pain of life, its obstacles and its sorrow?
Now I know that life is not that precious without love and hope
And with those we learn to tame the soul and cast the rope
In the darkness you have heard my screams
And came from beyond life and death’s streams
Now tonight I join you in death, happily
Chanting the little verses of death willingly
So take my hand, soul and lead me happily into the land of the dead
Let the world claim us insane, lost and naïve and let the word spread
That it was on this night that I finally breathed for the first time
And due to love I have committed the most forbidden crime
[end of life]
