I cant bow to you, dear lord if your hands are shaking Hold your knife steady and firm For you I will consume I have bled all your flowers and unmasked your vast perfection In loathe I turn away But I hunger every day I've lived all your wonders and I've seen the edges of you The fear and the blood of christ And your filthy paradise Through the glass I can see them All the ghosts that you believe in Be still and touch me again And I'll give you everything
Hear, what will I feel? I cannot see Read loudly to me my lord and forgive... me, what will I be? I cannot dream Read loudly to me my lord and free me...
To this day I have never felt so lonely Your hope shattering still, my fragile mind and will I try and I listen to the snakes that slither around us Your voice deep in my head And I pour another drink Your face isnt hidden You're the mouth of every child that starve and bleed The skull of a beast, in a carnival of greed I cant bow to you dear lord for your hands are still shaking violently and desperately For you I will devour.
When you're done I'll get up and walk through the desert and through the crowd They'll touch me with your eyes but father you will fail tonight Here I stand in naked flesh with your army watching me I will not cry like him I will not suffer for your sins Let the children come to me all the same for they cant believe I lay my collar down And drink your tears for one last time Even now when you leave my side and give birth to another christ I would stand there in your light But father I have forsaken me
