lyrics

Stuck between war and peace
When I got back from overseas
With hearts and minds pinned on my chest

Got myself a job downtown
Running high class girls around
You know the kind, better than the rest

I can’t say I lost my faith ‘cause it wasn’t mine to lose

Babe, I believe you’re innocent / All your days have came and went
Babe, I believe you’re innocent / The executioner’s lament

She cried out for her son
I knew it was all for fun
Tarot cards revealed the truth

Spin the wheel, take a chance
Dreaming of the South of France
The High Priestess wore a noose

Think you just might win but in the end you’ll lose

Babe, I believe you’re innocent / All your days have came and went
Babe, I believe you’re innocent / The executioner’s lament

Wandering through the streets of my hometown
Freaks and desperados all around
Said you want to know, I don’t think you do
Guillotines and gallows, so taboo

Please stop, I cannot stay
See me, I won’t be okay
Broken, soaked in decay
Obscene like a dream in the day

Find yourself another man
There’s too much blood on these hands
Lost it all when I lost my...

Babe, I believe you’re innocent / All your days have came and went
Babe, I believe you’re innocent / The executioner’s lament

This release takes on the metaphysical realm exploring grand themes of life, death, and rebirth. While not technically a “concept” album, it feels like one with its repeating themes and motifs.
