So Im trying to get a metal band for my graduation party and its at a church. We have had metal bands before but the pastor wants lyrics to prove that they arent death metal, in other words that they arent satanic or something. I found these lyrics and thought they sounded pretty non death metal.

When ever you hit the bottom of life
And the purest caress of hope seems non-existent
Please turn up your eyes and never look down
Please turn up your eyes and never look down

Up where the suns rays can illuminate the beauty in your eyes
When your wings have failed you,
Burned away into the same obliteration as ash or have depleted,
Or have depleted with your strength
Let my wings unfold around you
You cannot fly with just the memory

Look up!
Look up!
Look up!
And I will remain!

Up where the suns rays can illuminate the beauty in your eyes
When your wings have failed you,
Burned away into the same obliteration as ash or have depleted,
Or have depleted with your strength
Let my wings unfold around you
You cannot fly with just the memory

Look up and I will remain, suspended there as time slips away.

So I need the pits advice, do you think the pastor will accept these lyrics?

They seem fine to me, but I'm no pastor.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Dont you think he'd want more than one song? Just sayin. If you need more, I've got Christian lyrics from the kind of music you're lookin at.

Here's the ones that dont seem as Christian.

Perfect agony rose. I try so hard to breathe, but my voice is so constrained. I can hardly bellow this requiem, let alone a lullaby for you to sleep. I am the prince of your dreams, I am the king of your nightmares. Acting on a stage abounding in grace, strings attached to the puppeteer. (He is everything that kills) But I am redeemed by the greatest play wright of them all. Strings stitched by nails, his platform is his deathbed. His spotlight is love, and without it we are nothing. Master, remold my melted heart. In you our strings are all cut.
***
Stars light up the sky. The ambience is perfect on this beautiful night. The sparkle in your eyes reflects off the moonlight. You uprooted my heart and now its the prettiest flower. The connection of your heart and mine will allow us to smile even as we die. Words begin to corrode as time stands still, for this is unexplainable. Kings would die for this. This, my friend, is love at its most pure. I cherish you with everything that I am. Here comes the sunlight giving my soul warmth.. and here comes the rain. I cherish you with everything that I am. Diamonds grow dim at the sight of you. Your fingerprints prove this is your doing. Your signature completes the contract. (This ones obviously about a girl)
***
follow on,
through this valley we travel,
where these flowers are blooming so scarlet.
these rouge waters expect us to follow their neverending paths.
we share no mercy.
we shall fight this burdensom battle until this scorching crown is won over.
i will never fear, danger can not frighten me now.
i follow onward.
