Area 11 - Angel Lust -Official Lyric Video-

Angel Lust is the 7th song on the album Modern Synthesis.

Cassandra

Angel Lust Cassandra Isolation

Angel Lust Cassandra Isolation

During parts of the song a feminine synthesized voice can be heard singing alongside Sparkles The voice is either intentional, likely Cassandra, or potentially just an unintentional side effect of some of the audio processing. The lyrics where this occurs are in bold below. During the chorus, Sparkles* and the voice sing the backing interchangeably, sometimes finishing each other's sentences.

Towards the end of the song, the instrumentation makes it difficult to tell if it is Sparkles or the voice singing. Lyrics where this occurs are italicized as well as bolded.

A pitch-isolated version of the song makes it easier to hear this voice.

Lyrics

Mother, how far did you deviate?
Alone in the dark as you would meditate
Did you conceive of us when in multitude above
Bearing us forth in labour pains of love?

The bridge collapsed but you took the stone
From the ash an altar raised, you rebuilt your home
Hunger for concourse, you brought us to life
Crawling, standing, running, towards the light, woah-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
And though we'll face the spite, of thousands
And cynics they will try, to tempt and change our minds
We'll keep our faith alive, we'll raise our voices
And scream it from our hearts: God loves her children

Blinded in the conclave we offer our trust
Shaking and bound in the angel lust
Our mouths are open, we wait to receive
A sign and the scraps of truth of what we believe, woah-oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
And though we'll face the spite, of thousands
Nonbelievers they will try, to tempt and change our minds
We'll keep our faith alive, we'll raise our voices
And scream it from our hearts: God loves her children

And though we'll face the spite, of thousands
And cynics they will try, to tempt and change our minds
We know we'll never die alone and frightened
Just closer to the last communion without her
We'll keep our faith alive, we'll raise our voices
And scream it from our hearts: God loves her children

The passion, the pain, our bodies ache,(God loves her children) we cry your name
The passion, the pain, our bodies ache,(God loves her children) we cry your name
The passion, the pain, our bodies ache,(God loves her children) we cry your name
The passion, the pain
