about

A song about crucifixion.

lyrics

I recant all prayers I've made.
I repent all errs I've made.
I drive nails through these cold hands so
he will forgive,
he will forgive,
he will forgive,
he will forgive.

Tears flow from the wound in my side.
Blood flows out from sunken eyes
every time I think of you.
He gave his only son for you.
Tell me was it worth it?
Tell me was it worth it?

Ash to ash and dust to dust.
I die for sin, consumed by lust.
I've seen hell that worship brings.
Let me unleash the god within.

I drive nails through.
I drive nails through.
I drive nails through.
I drive nails - you

see the scars in both our palms.
I listen to the bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am, I am.

I talk to god but the sky is empty.
I talk to god but the sky is empty.
I talk - I talk - I talk - I talk
I talk to god but the sky is empty.
