For those who don't already know, Unconsecrated is a concept album about the final battle between heaven and hell. Damien, who was killed in a bus accident in late 2007 while the band was on tour, had constructed the concept for the album, apparently reading all this old religious literature, and had started writing the lyrics. After he died, the other members, mostly Jamie I think, had to try and piece together the story and finish writing the lyrics. I'm not religious at all, but I think that for that reason, this album is really interesting lyrically.
1. The Garden of Impurity
The Garden of Impurity
Darkness descending on Eden,
the hour of judgement at hand.
Purgatory has awakened.
Bare witness the fall of creation.
Blinded by fruits of the Father.
The cycle of endless deceit.
Forked tongues speak of rapture and beauty
not known nor pardoned.
Blissful malcontents, how dare they speak of the throne?
My image was born of perfection,
