lyrics

HOLY NAILHEAD

Through visions and mystic dreams
This holy man came to me
I saw his pierced side and bloodstained hands
Divine experience enlightened my mind

I called him the holy Nailhead
Somehow this name punched through my brain
Nails were his doom and glory
In dark times when it all began

(Holy man)

He released me, he brought me to
What I've always wanted and feared
Desires I was trying to kill
Now they are free and so am I

Yes, I can see my destiny
Crown of thorns ripping my skin
Tears, sweat, blood, disgrace
Humiliation beyond belief

Holy Nailhead, god of shame
Wounds taste like freedom, god of shame
Nailhead... God of shame

I want them to destroy me
Laugh at me, spit at me, curse me
Damn me, hate me, watch me
As I'm crucified

So now I dream of this...
Every single day
Free to enjoy what I want
Accepting who I am

I'm not afraid to admit
This is just what I need
What I thought was damned
Is now my only way

I want to experience
Agony in blood, dirt and sweat
Just like my savior

Revelation - sweet joy of pain
Revelation - this is who I am

Holy Nailhead, god of shame
Wounds taste like freedom, god of shame
Nailhead... God of Shame

Nails...
Nails...

about

Nihil Quest Bydgoszcz, Poland

Nihil Quest was established in the summer of 2006. The main idea was to play music inspired in first place by hard rock and metal classics (such as Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Slayer), but also to include some blues and industrial rock influences.

NQ stands out from the local music scene because of their inclination for multimedia. Check out YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/NihilQuest
