lyrics

How blessed to bask in the presence
How divine granted convalescence
Honey wine to a thirsty soul
Pulled deeper when your face takes hold
Relinquished shivering hesitation
For a chance a divination
Plunged into the murky depths
Oh how the water wept

Exiting draped in baptismal shroud
The river regretting what it couldn’t drown
A pearl dripping from the serpent’s tongue
Crafted with rumors spun
In legion with the son of Cain
A bitter kiss to absolve the pain
Burning in the light of his altar
Never to waver or falter

How silent the audience becomes
When the threads come

Prayers called out in crucifixion cries
Preform heresy in the name of good
Holy promises to white lies
Sullied myself for his sainthood

Oh my lord, thy name I have taken in vain
Never to cleanse myself of virginal stain
Cut me open from mouth to cunt
Remove what offends take what you want
Yet worthless, unworthy am I
For his discretions he shall die
The hellfire in which boils blood
Shall be sanctified by your son

Crimson spilled in the crystal font
Drained empty and completely gaunt
You were never the only one here
and I was not your mirror

The shadow cast for something so small
No, I don’t think you’re god at all.
