Steal it, take it, know my name in loving memory
Sand it, brand it, in your brain, a forthright eulogy
I am but a sinner here, my faults are underlined
I have but to hold you near to cleanse the sins of time

I have known you, all too well
I have shown you, all too well
I have thrilled you, all too well
I have filled you, with the sense of what you need to

Speak up, calling my name out
Speak up, the shattering of doubt
This is where you start
With nails run through your heart
Leave the name, burned in the brain
Leave your mark

Find it, blind it with your light or curse to be alive
Will it, kill it in your night, commit yourself to thrive
You are but a sinner hear, each breath is now your crime
You have but to shed a tear, to wash away the time

I have known you, all too well
I have shown you, all too well
I have thrilled you, all too well
I have filled you, with the sense of what you need to

Speak up, calling my name out
Speak up, the shattering of doubt
This is where you start
With nails run through your heart
Leave the name, burned in the brain
Leave your mark

Give me your principles, values and hope
Or I’ll take them away
Not so convincible if you can’t cope
Or rise to the day
Worn out the morals that lit up the path
Now gone to the dark
Frayed are the laurels, igniting the wrath
They left in the mark
Wrap me in darkness, wrap me in light
Wrap me in indestructible light

Way down the road it’s better, believe me
Way down the road it’s gone (god)
Carry the load, it’s harder, believe me
Carry it to your dawn (a lightning rod)
Way down the road it’s better, believe me
Way down the road it’s gone (god)
Carry the load, it’s harder, believe me
Carry it to your dawn (a lightning rod)
