lyrics

Love once tolled its bells
And lured my lips to drink from tainted wells
My tongue learned poison's taste
No kiss removes the trace

Skies once filled with light
And blinded our perception of the night
The stars we were assigned
In haste, found their decline

Oh, oh
All the promises we made were lies we told
Oh, oh
What's to come will never be a band of gold
A band of gold

Green once grew our path
And cut our legs on razor blades of grass
The years trod down in mud
Decayed and drained of blood

Vows once held their own
And bound my breath to chains that sank like stones
"To have, and to hold"
Those words now leave me cold

Oh, oh
All the promises we made were lies we told
Oh, oh
What's to come will never be a band of gold
A band of gold

So long, and ever far away
All traces of the hope once shared
Now left to rot inside a shallow grave
"To have, and to hold"
Those words now leave me cold

Oh, oh
All the promises we made were lies we told
Oh, oh
What's to come will never be a band of gold
A band of gold
Oh, oh
All the promises were broken and untrue
Oh, oh
What's to come will never be borrowed or blue
Borrowed or blue

about

Heathen Apostles Los Angeles, California

That is one hell of a lineup. ... more
