Band origin: Sweden

Origin of song title:

"No Rest For The Wicked" (from Urban Dictionary)

Isaiah 48:22 " 'There is no peace,' says the Lord, 'for the wicked.' "

Isaiah 57:20 "But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt."

Isaiah 57:21 "There is no peace," says my God, "to the wicked."

The evil spirited man/woman could not rest for his/her mind cannot be settled down into a calm state. Thus is an example of the life of a liar, a thief, a murderer, offender, a squandered, etc. Once judged, that person who holds a heart of guilt fails the test of the heart and is sent back into a life-form more miserable than the one prior. "No Rest For The Wicked"

 

 

Lyrics

My one heart hurt another
So only one life can't be enough
Can you give me just another
For that one who got away

Lonely I, I'm so alone now

There'll be no rest for the wicked
There's no song for the choir
There's no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight

If one heart can mend another
Only then can we begin
So won't you hold on a little longer
Don't let them get away

Lonely I, I'm so alone now

There'll be no rest for the wicked
There's no song for the choir
There's no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight
I let my good one down
I let my true love die
I had his heart but I broke it every time

Lonely I, I'm so alone now

There'll be no rest for the wicked
There's no song for the choir
There's no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight
I let my good one down
I let my true love die
I had his heart but I broke it every time
