A while ago I began writing a concept album on the 7 deadly sins, but I didn't have the creative fortitude to finish it.

I shall show you the work I do have, so let your constructive opinions go to work. =)

(Act I: Superbia)

The Morning Star Tragedy

On the golden streets of heaven
Chaos has risen among the celestial
A battle between the undying
A pride of the angel’s heart becomes known.

Lucifer: “I shall become like my creator
I shall become eternally supreme
All of heaven will bow down beneath me.”

Pride swallowed the morning star
In a mist of deceit and decay
He was blind to his growing folly
Darkness consumed his soul.

God: “You have fallen from my grace
You have blasphemed me in utter defiance
You shall be cast into fire without deliverance.”

Lucifer gathered his followers
To rally against the creator of all things
A hate swelled inside of him
He wanted the power of the almighty God.

Lucifer: “I am the epitome of beauty
I shall be forevermore almighty
I shall be worshiped for all eternity.

The Morning Star’s passion to be mighty
Came to a bitter and tragic end
Lord of heaven cast him into the inferno
Where his heart turned to shadow.

Lucifer: “My flesh burning forever in hell
My brother’s fell with me into the flame
We are forever to be put to shame.”

Act II: Avaritia

Golden Cup of Greed

The Pompous priest smiles with glee
As the slaves and peasants give all they have
The order of lies
The order of greed
Overtakes the foundation of hope.

Religion used to fatten the clergy
As the poor suffer in constant agony.

Drink the bittersweet cup
The golden cup of greed
And watch as your desire begins to feed.

The assassin kills for great amount wealth
As he cuts open the throat of the innocent
The order of betrayal
The order of murder
Overtakes the realm of justice.

Murder used for the gain of money
As the blood of many stain his memory.

Drink the bittersweet cup
The golden cup of greed
And watch as your desire begins to feed.

Act III: Ira

Wrath’s Embrace

In the ashes of a fallen city
Children cry and scream in constant sorrow
They are the orphans of an endless war
They will not escape the wrath of tomorrow.

War rages on through the world’s nations
Grasping humanity’s neck tightly
Slowly strangling hope of a new day
Paving the road for darkness to lead the way.

The final moment is summoned forth
Burying hope in destruction
Eradicating the chance of salvation.

Ruin marks the way of destiny
Death is the only picture in the frame
Wrath embraces the world in shame.

God weeps for His children
The creation that he gave breathe
Has collapsed into a irreversible calamity
Engulfing the earth in flames for all eternity.

(Act IV: Luxuria)

Lady of Lust

The legacy of perverse deeds
Echo through the history of man
As wicked lust slithers into society
Tempting the weak minded into its maw.

Oh lady of lust
You clothed yourself in beauty
Twisting the minds of the innocent
Revealing yourself as a creature of agony.

The blind leads the blind
Into a league of blasphemy
This darken age swallows the sunlight
Leaving the innocence to rot in the shadows.

Oh lady of lust
You clothed yourself in beauty
Twisting the minds of the innocent
Revealing yourself as a creature of agony.

Holding their heart within her palm
She seduces them into the darkest void
She is the puppeteer of humanity
Creating a beautiful tragedy.

Oh lady of lust
You clothed yourself in beauty
Twisting the minds of the innocent
Revealing yourself as a creature of agony.
