about

Marked by the powerful vocals of Christine Davis and the rich harmonies of guitar duo Oscar Sparbel and Tim Diedrich, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS have honed their craft resulting in a vital entry to the genre. Simultaneously relevant and anachronistic, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS serves the song, the art, and the listener with ‘To Your Death’ ignoring the line drawn between past, present and future.

Track Name: Neon
We wait for the dawn.
Can’t escape the knife of the neon lights burnin out the stars.
No one can see who we are,
just a teenage dream lookin for a scene and falling apart.
It was a dark place in time to come runnin back and I was out of my mind.
But there’s no turning back to the blinding light.
I don’t care anymore,
I don’t care,
I don’t want to hear it.
Wherever I go you’re callin my name.
If I sing you this song it’s the only way.
I’ve got to throw the knife in your heart.
Now arise from your sleep to seek precipice,
Where things are not as they seem and there’s no turning back to the blinding light.
I don’t care, I don’t care anymore. I don’t care.
I don’t want to hear it.
Wherever I go you’re callin my name.
Let it raise the dead where the blood was.
Let our hardened hearts will damn the rest.
We are standing on shaking stone in the hours before the dawn.
When we meet the dark, everything’s alright.
Track Name: Stronger Than Blood
Death City: our sacrifice comin for you.
Don’t be left behind.
Dead angel out on the shore, take our souls.
You know who we are, we’re ready to fight.
Are you comin along?
What we’ve been told is not the only way.
Where have you gone my friend?
Have hard times led you away?
Stronger than blood, stand beside me.
We’re walkin down all these dark streets with blood on our hands.
We take the blame for our actions to live this way.
I gotta know where I’m goin if it’s only today.
I gotta get what I’m after.
We’re ready to fight, are you coming along?
We’re taking something from nothing.
Gonna give it away.
We’ve got to fight for the answers,
To live this way.
I gotta know where I’m going, if it’s only today.
I gotta get what I’m after.
We’re ready to fight.
Are you comin along?
What we’ve been told is not the only way.
Death city streets, where I’ll be found.
Stronger than blood until the end.
Track Name: Eclipse
Black moon horizon.
How still is the night.
I’ve been gone for so long.
I can hardly clear my mind.
There’s no place I can find.
Moon is falling over the sun.
Can’t see what we’ve become,
Mixing words til their meaning’s gone.
I am the diviner.
Fiery tongues to burn the tomb.
Don’t ask me mortal questions,
I’m just a dreamer passin by.
There’s no place that I can find.
Moon is falling over the sun.
We take the damage done.
The fall of Lucifer goes on.
You’re gonna take it all away, your gonna take it all.
Nothing to give, nothing to gain.
You’re gonna take it all.
There is no place that I can find.
Not even shadows left behind.
Track Name: Walkin' Around
It isn’t enough for me to say you are no more.
As I live and breathe I know you do the same.
Now beyond the door, across this side of life,
Walkin around without a sound, without a voice,
Lookin for something to hold but you’re givin me nothing at all.
At the edge of the forest Walpurgis nacht,
drink the black wine.
Do your own thing but get it right.
From the outside lookin in you’re wanting more.
Looking for something, something to hold.
This fire will always burn.
These hands will always work.
This mind will always learn.
But I’d rather you were here.
Track Name: Open Road
I’m on a road, on a highway.
Gonna black and blue it’s my way.
Have a word with you tell me something good.
Always looking for a way out, you know I wanna break out of concrete boots
I’ll be walkin to hell for sure.
Take you to a place you know so well.
Gonna go back to our roots and throw it all away.
I’ve been hiding this pain for all my life.
Gonna start all over again.
I’ll be walkin to hell for sure.
I want you back in my arms.
The stone and the blood, now it’s gone.
I don’t remember what we had but it made me feel alive.
I’m on a road, on a highway.
Gonna black and blue it’s my way.
You know I want to break out.
We are getting old but we don’t ever age we just live our lives.
There’s no time to waste.
Find the shortest line from the center of the world.
Gonna start all over again.
Tell me if you’re on the road that leads us to the end.
I’ve been hiding this pain for all my life.
Find the shortest line from the center of the world.
Track Name: Ultimate Freedom
Well that’s life.
Feeling low again.
Time’s a wheel and we won’t see the end/
Right now it’s the weight of the world.
Will you carry me?
Comin down from the highest mountain,
Will you carry me?
Oh this road is worn.
I’ve been here before and tried to make it easy.
Put my heart in a grave.
But there’s no comfort there.
Your love makes me insane.
I am in disgrace, don’t know where my mind’s been.
Suddenly, suddenly, suddenly I am free.
I’m free to chase these ghosts surrounding all around infernal
machine.
It’s what I’m runnin from that I want the most.
But things just take too long and then I am lost.
It’s such an ageless time and life is flyin by.
How can I escape these never ending chains?
How can we live under this curse and walk the labyrinth of lies that build our world?
All that we are reduced to stone.
The hand of doom won’t leave us alone/
Now in the ground and surrounded by dirt, lay my defenses down.
I’m the corpse that is willing to burn.
Infernal machine.
Track Name: Lone Wild
The eye is watching me, where can I go?
Where there is nothing to see.
Is it all for yourself?
Are you under it’s spell?
Does it radiate all that you know?
Black night.
Gotta find the life beyond the light.
Death creeps in the mind within gaining speed.
Disaster when the scales are tipped.
Never knowing when we’ll meet again.
Full moon night is a candle that will light your path through the hours and restless days.
Hear me now.
A story told beyond this world.
Hear the words resounding fade.
Maybe I’m just wasting my time here.
Lone wild stars across my eyes.
Going back to all of the old ways,
All of the things that I used to know.
Maybe I’ll be left to decay or in the sky I’ll fly with the birds.
Death creeps in the mind within leaving.
All this is not my home.
Track Name: TYD
You think you’re free but you’re livin in a fantasy.
You try to get it right but it’s always so challenging.
I wanna wait for you,
I wanna see it through but stranger days are coming.
I have made my choices, live free or don’t.
What more to say.
Now my time has come and I have got to leave this town,
get rid of everything that threatens me into the ground.
Out where the streets dissolve and houses are no more.
Here’s to your death, it meant nothing at all.
