Oh, Sleeper – Vices Like Vipers lyrics

You're scarlet, soaked, and bold and the sheep's eyes locked to mine, sinks to my bones.
Though your lips still drip, intentions, they keep me wanting more...
It's rising against all the walls we built for falling.
All the walls we built just stand in vain to draw you near.
It's the wool to hide the wolves.
And under these toes from where we last spoke, Your words laid so firm.
But I did not she'd that skin like You said.
When the mason neglects the mortar, looks become deceiving
And when the bricks start to fall, I'll be the one crawling down this road so dark.
Vices like vipers
They speak in whispers.
My heel's the meat to sink your teeth into,
Like the viper I kept when You said, "Let go!"
This is what it took for me to see.
When I am god this church is unsound.
Slithering in the shade of a sinking church,
Surprise is no excuse for the traps that you left in the wake of warning.
So this is the warning, you fall to love.
And to the girls,
You're worth more than the cheap words.
You see your body as beauty, but your pulse is worth more.
Hear me, it's not what it seems, the fleeting taste of honesty.
This is the warning, you're just a hit to coax my urgency.
Why do we keep what holds us? Why do I keep what holds me down?
Lose the weight of defeat. It's time to stand your ground!
Vices like vipers
They speak in whispers.
My heel's the meat to sink your teeth into,
Like the viper
I kept when You said, "Let go!"
Since all the alibis of ignorance are void...
This, my lust, the pornos and the s***s.
Take, my lust, this world's Love.
Great Counselor, take what's left.
Great Counselor, take what's left of me

    This song is about complete submission to the Lord. It's asking Him to make you a better person because you know that's the right thing - you have no excuse. It's about letting ago all of the bad things in your life, things that you might think you have no control over when in fact you do. This song hit home because Micah sounded in agony, agony for good. His warning is clear.

    Thank you message two down from me, your so right! Not often will people admit that, but thank you tvu's battery, without you I never would've known about the dead throne tour, and if I'd never known, I never would've seen oh, sleeper play live and develop my interest in their band. And finally, I'm so glad there's no people here who throw around the word 'satanist' to easily because of the son of the morning star-dealy!

    "they keep me wanting more" this is a struggle against one of the deadly sins of lust. This illustrates the threat of deceit and temptation that everyone faces and alot of people fall to. But there is redemption for falling, "lose the weight of defeat. It's time to stand your ground! " surrender to god and he will never let go as long as you don't, he will take your sins away.
