A Covenant Of Thorns – Sanctuary lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm a savior to just a few of everything
I'm a danger to the rest of you, how degrading

And when I can't be everything to everyone
I'm just another voice fading out before it's begun

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh no, here we go
The ebb and flow
Drag me down like undertow

[Chorus]
I never wanted to be your priest
Your king, your new martyr
Here the raindrops fall like tears
On the panes of glass at our feet
Crashing down until they block
The sound of my heartbeat
Million voices in my mind
We're on our knees praying

For sanctuary
The angels weep tonight
Sanctuary
The angels weep tonight

[Verse 2]
I'm an angel, waiting to be eaten alive
I'm a devil, waiting to be exorcised

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh no, here we go
The ebb and flow
Drag me down like undertow

[Chorus]
I never wanted to be your priest
Your king, your new martyr
Here the raindrops fall like tears
On the panes of glass at our feet
Crashing down until they block
The sound of my heartbeat
Million voices in my mind
We're on our knees praying

[Outro]
For sanctuary
I don't want to see you grasping
(The angels weep tonight)
I want to hear you gasping
Sanctuary
I don't want to see you trying
(The angels weep tonight)
I want to hear you crying
Sanctuary
I don't want to see you grasping
(The angels weep tonight)
I want to hear you gasping
I don't want to see you trying
(The angels weep tonight)
I want to hear you crying
