Zao - Lies of Serpents, A River of Tears

This is one of the best metal songs ever, by Zao or any other band... it's great music for releasing tension (or exercising!) and the lyrics are just amazing. Maybe I'll start posting lyrics to my favorite songs more often... hmmm... next time I think I'll pick a mellow acoustic piece. Stay tuned! :-)

Lies Of Serpents, A River Of Tears

Your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes search for me
For so long I've wanted to come home
Held back by lies of serpents and tongues of brothers
Turning a child into an enemy
Turning open arms into closed fists
I could see the reflection in the tears
That made their way down Your face
Onto the ground I kneel upon
They form a river that overtakes me
Compassion envelops me
I forgive and release
Forgive, release
Forgiven, released
