lyrics

I. Mitya's lament

The judgment of God pierces my consciousness
I must address
That if I'm doomed to Hell then I deserve it
I do confess
I'm a slave to my passions above all else
Even as I hear the death knells

My hands drenched in blood, I approach the scaffold
Nailed to the cross
What goes around comes around, and I'm no saint
My glowing bairn growing faint
I'm a slave to my passions above all else
Even as I hear the death knells
I am a scoundrel over all, but all that I hear is the sound of my fall
Sound of my fall

II. Smerdyakov's Soliloquy

III. Ivan's Dilemma

What is this madness that takes me,
That tears me asunder between Heaven and Hell?
Can humans love one another,
Or are we just wretches looking to be quelled?
Whether Christ is or isn't is all moot
Because we only listen to what we want to hear
What is a life free of virtue, though?
I find myself overtaken with fear

IV. Alyosha's Love
