Penance – Penance lyrics

[Music: Weston/Smail/Freund]
[Lyrics: Smail]

Sit and watch the world, I contemplate
Existence I'll legitimate, a quirk of fate
Is man of God or just Nature's folly
Still with intelligence, we all are crawling

One step forward and two steps back
Bring man's destined descent into black

What does existence hold for me
A mutation of what man conceives
Did you ever step back and look at yourself
You might not like what you see

And with each dawn that brings a new day's breath
For most it means life, but for me it means death

Man is a paradox drowning in irony
The world is chained to man's reality

Can't you see
It wasn't meant to be
Not you or me
Humanity...... You're killing me
