lyrics

He was welcomed at the peasant’s house, for the night to stay
The merchant answered gratefully, unwitting of the price to pay
His body tried to fall asleep
But his mind kept him awake

Night fell, he could hear them speak
His death was to fulfill the sinner’s greed
Trapped he was, no chance to leave
Hiding in the dark, fate could not be escaped

Finally the door was opened, a portal to his end
The deadly silhouette approached, knife in hand

He fought, struggling for life
The sinner’s son stood aside, his axe prepared to strike
They dragged him to his destiny
Becoming the final victim of the Sinner of Greed

You’re invited, to lay to rest. In his house, be his guest

He thrives when all live in fear
Are you next to volunteer?
Insensitive to human sorrow
His avarice beyond control

All of life was controlled by mortal agony
From the path of wealthy traders, no man returns

The Sinner of Greed
Nothing could fulfil his precious needs
The Sinner of Greed
He take lives, nothing he leaves

They are accustomed to having it all
Never hesitate to use violence for their own benefit

The Sinner of Greed
Now bound to a chair that makes him bleed
The Sinner of Greed
For more than a hundred days, the end is near

Limbs were broken, one by one, on the wheel of punishment
The hangman held a cord, his strangled wife at the end
Hung in iron chains
Their bodies were displayed
The cabin fever’s gone, but the legend lives on

Devious' fifth effort is a groundbreaking, heavy portion of grooving and melodic 2012 metal, supplemented with some classical influences.
