Jeff Holt Do NOT be put off by the inverted cross on the cover of this record, suspecting that it must be a metal record. On the contrary, The Hearse have restored my faith in current post punk. Devouring their record has been a dark feast of the same flavor as The Sisters of Mercy's first album, and, even more strongly, of Bauhaus and Christian Death, as well as, more subtly, Joy Division, particularly when Joy Division played live, and were a bit angry. Give this a listen, esp. "Depression." Favorite track: Depression.

Track Name: We Bleed Black
We bleed black our love consumed
In our darkest hour are heaven-less tombs
A flesh so white, a mortal soul, trapped in a body that never grows old
We bleed black as daylight flickers, we must return to what darkness gave us
The taste of blood, the twilight moon, a vision of love and your heart removed


n the dark of the night


We bleed black as cold as ice
A thousand years of slumber and an opening eye
Shadowed by the sun and cursed by fate, the silver rays ignite your face
We bleed black our bones like dust, hearts like stone, born to lust
In a river of blood I bathe in sorrow, thinking of a life with no tomorrow


In the dark of the night.
Track Name: Empire Down
Follow your heart and then live in sin
For acts of love, of love
The gift to be alone exists as nothing
Shadowed by my own design, i’m a conformist tonight
Your life defines who you are, not who you want to be.

I stand alone in my empire down, i reach for love, empire down.

Reaching for exile, through a frozen heart
As i walk to a pale dawn
I am searching in the shadows, in this theatre of pain
Your life defines who you are, not who you want to be.

I stand alone in my empire down, i reach for love, empire down.
Track Name: Blackout
He was nurtured from birth and raised by hell
The killer instinct he knows too well
Within the depths of madness, the blood runs free
No room for you, just Mother and he

It’s starting again, blackout

In his taxidermy heart, the hate consumes
The quiet man who lurks in the shadows of the vacant rooms
Walking alone with he night as his friend
It’s a matter of time before you reach your end

It’s starting again, blackout.
Track Name: Dimming Moon
The dark edge of sanity, painted in black, where nightmares come and silence screams
The fractured pictures from a broken mind, a cut so deep it tears at time.
A hollow shell, which once was you, a tortured life, under a dimming moon

Paranoid delusion, you will suffer well, paint me a picture of this living hell

The pain it traps us within this hell, the dark edge of sanity where demons dwell
The stains of fear never fade away, these tears of love lead me away
A hollow shell, which once was you, a tortured life, under a dimming moon

Paranoid delusion, you will suffer well, paint me a picture of this living hell
Track Name: Depression
Depression deep inside, nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Taking your smile and taking your eyes
A shadowed heart and the minds disguise

I’d take my life if i believed in me
I’d take my life if i believed in you

Misery rains on me, watching the leaves fall down
Head in my hands, thinking of life and the person i am
The expectations grow, wanting myself to believe

I’d take my life if i believed in me
I’d take my life if i believed in you.
Track Name: Dead City
We move along to the pace of the city
To the backdrop of our neon dream
The street lights flicker, igniting your bones
All we love, we love alone.

Dead city, now take my hand, in our dead city

The roads are long, draped in concrete sin
the underground is calling from within
Urban decay will swallow you whole
Leaving you empty, no heart, no soul

Dead city, now take my hand, in our dead city
Track Name: Soul Solution
In the chambers of demise eleven million people died
Their screams echo through the walls of oblivion

The world has always suffered, our tears they fall like rain
The world has always suffered, we all have blood on our hands

The visionaries of terror, they are laying down their plans
The damned all stand around and dig their own graves

The world has always suffered, our tears they fall like rain
The world has always suffered, we all have blood on our hands.
Track Name: The Rapture
The rapture of man, our kingdom dies
Valleys run red as faith resides
The keeper at the gate, decides our fate
Face to face with our deepest fear
The puppet master pulls on the strings of design, pulling evolutions throw.

Repent, you’ll do no wrong, you’re out of time, now walk the line

Fear opens doors, heart beats so fast
The truth hurts the most, in death we relate
In truth is your lie, in man is demise
The killing of innocence as our tears run dry
The puppet master pulls on the strings of design, pulling evolutions throw.

Repent, you’ll do no wrong, you’re out of time, now walk the line
Track Name: Ceremony
In this ceremony of bleeding there are sacrificial knives
In the temple of black the ageing silence cries
Our wings are cracked, fractured and unused
Vows that are spoken are made to be broken

The ceremony ends, all hope is gone. A night of ritual

The curtains close, your heart is torn by a world that they possess
In sacrifice the pain begins, you slowly fade away

The ceremony ends, all hope is gone. A night of ritual.

We Bleed Black -



We bleed black our love consumed

In our darkest hour are heaven-less tombs

A flesh so white, a mortal soul, trapped in a body that never grows old

We bleed black as daylight flickers, we must return to what darkness gave us

The taste of blood, the twilight moon, a vision of love and your heart removed



In the dark of the night



We bleed black as cold as ice

A thousand years of slumber and an opening eye

Shadowed by the sun and cursed by fate, the silver rays ignite your face

We bleed black our bones like dust, hearts like stone, born to lust

In a river of blood I bathe in sorrow, thinking of a life with no tomorrow



In the dark of the night.







Empire Down -

Follow your heart and then live in sin
For acts of love, of love
The gift to be alone exists as nothing
Shadowed by my own design, i’m a conformist tonight
Your life defines who you are, not who you want to be.

I stand alone in my empire down, i reach for love, empire down.
Reaching for exile, through a frozen heart

As i walk to a pale dawn
I am searching in the shadows, in this theatre of pain
Your life defines who you are, not who you want to be.

I stand alone in my empire down, i reach for love, empire down.




Blackout-

He was nurtured from birth and raised by hell
The killer instinct he knows too well
Within the depths of madness, the blood runs free
No room for you, just Mother and he.

It’s starting again, blackout.

In his taxidermy heart, the hate consumes
The quiet man who lurks in the shadows of the vacant rooms
Walking alone with he night as his friend
It’s a matter of time before you reach your end.

It’s starting again, blackout.


Dimming Moon-

The dark edge of sanity, painted in black, where nightmares come and silence screams
The fractured pictures from a broken mind, a cut so deep it tears at time.
A hollow shell, which once was you, a tortured life, under a dimming moon.

Paranoid delusion, you will suffer well, paint me a picture of this living hell

The pain it traps us within this hell, the dark edge of sanity where demons dwell
The stains of fear never fade away, these tears of love lead me astray.
A hollow shell, which once was you, a tortured life, under a dimming moon.

Paranoid delusion, you will suffer well, paint me a picture of this living hell.



Depression -

Depression deep inside, nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Taking your smile and taking your eyes
A shadowed heart and the minds disguise

I’d take my life if i believed in me
I’d take my life if i believed in you

Misery rains on me, watching the leaves fall down
Head in my hands, thinking of life and the person i am
The expectations grow, wanting myself to believe.

I’d take my life if i believed in me
I’d take my life if i believed in you.

Dead city, now take my hand, in our dead city.

Shadow of Love -


Kicking stones and staring at the sun
I come undone at the thought of love
You’re looking for it in the wrong places
All i see is lost souls and people without faces

Shadow of love got a hold on me
Shadow of love gonna set me free
Shadow of love got a hold on my heart
Shadow of love

You have to kill your emotions be part of the human race
Ebb and flow just to know your real
Love, hate, fear and pain, you feel it over and over again
With nothing left to say, only goodbye

Shadow of love got a hold on me
Shadow of love gonna set me free
Shadow of love got a hold on my heart
Shadow of love

In the shadow of love, she calls to me
in the shadow of love, down on my knees

Shadow of love got a hold on me
Shadow of love gonna set me free
Shadow of love got a hold on my heart
Shadow of love.
Track Name: Mein Leiden
I’ve been broken and i’ve been dirt
I’ve been lost and i’ve been hurt
I’ve been blamed and i’ve been shamed
Not much of me remains
I’ve had trust and i’ve felt lust
I’ve felt failure and i’ve been bust
I’ve seen shadows and i’ve climbed walls
I tried to love and i broke rules

I’ve felt used and i’ve been bruised
i’ve been forgotten and confused
I’ve been open and i’ve been closed
I’ve seen so much, i don’t know
I don’t know what to so anymore, everything has gone so poor
In the street the people stare, faces, faces, everywhere

Is it fate, or is it time?
Is it their choice, or is it mine?
Is it there or are we blind? Try to find the answers we can’t find
Is it true, or is it false?
Is it high, or is it low?
Is it safe, or out of control?
They won’t tell you, you don’t need to know

Where there’s money, there’s always greed
Where there’s cure, there’s always disease
Where there’s hope, there’s always a rope and they’ll pull on it until you choke
People running from what they’ve seen
Are we awake when we dream?
In the distance the silent scream, in their past our fires gleam.

Faces, faces, everywhere.
Track Name: Faith Healer
The temptation of christ, is leading you astray
Only godless love remains
Dismantled dreams in your stolen heart
Believing in yourself is just the start

Faith healer, calls from within, your heaven on fire. Faith healer

Look at your life through the eyes of a saint
No room for error, no room for complaint
The walls that surround you are shadowed in white
..and the voices that guide you are hidden by the night
..and the voices that guide you are hidden by the night

Faith healer, calls from within, your heaven on fire. Faith healer.
