lyrics

I am the voice of the fallen.
I am the cries in the dark.
I am the soul of the broken you left, fallen apart.
I am the dull blazing embers.
I am the tear in your eye.
I am the one that you died for.
I am the one you denied.
I am the one that’s still standing.
I’ve faced the pain and the fall.
I am the echo of treason.
From fates clutches I’ve crawled,

What a worthless endeavor.
What a waste of my breathe what a waste of my thought.
To think you could save me.
What use is my faith when the noose meets the knot.

I’ve seen the face of death.
I’ve looked in the eyes of the devil himself.
I’ve screamed till my throat bled.
And in response from the clouds I heard nothing and wept.

I’ve lost all that I hold dear.
I’ve prayed unanswered turned to tears.
No God, no answer for my blood.
No peace, no payment for what’s lost.

If you can hear me.
Know that there’s nothing I want from you now.
My soul isn’t worth saving.
All hope at redemption is far from me now.

The serpent coils around my neck.
His wicked eyes stare deep in my soul.
Heaven has closed it’s gates.
The lake of fire is calling me home.

I’ve lost all that I hold dear.
I’ve prayed unanswered turned to tears.
No God, no answer for my blood.
No peace, no payment for what’s lost.

What peace is there in lies?
What justice is found is misplacement of debt?
With these hands I have wrought sin
For those sins I will pay with the blood of my neck.
I know you are listening!
I know you can hear me!
If you truly do love me,
I need you to show me my life is worth saving.

What peace is there in lies?
What justice is found is misplacement of debt?
With these hands I have wrought sin
For those sins I will pay with the blood of my neck.
