Casey Stratton – Nailed To The Cross lyrics

When the shaking stopped
We were left in dust and flames
Buried our heads in shame
How did we let it come to this?
A complaining sound
Juxtaposed with time and regret
Maybe forgive, not forget
We destroyed what was left of this

Every time I tried
Every time I failed
Every time I nailed you to the cross and took aim
With my arrow you were slain

Don't expect anything
No respect for your suffering
You did this all yourself
You're dismissed
You can get out now

When the quaking stopped
Realized that all along
We were playing two different songs
And you were never good with time
I predicted this
Saw where I could bleed the whole time
Tried to hide every knife
Should have known you'd find a way to strike

Every time you tried
Every time you failed
Every time I nailed you to the cross and took aim
With my disgust you were slain

Don't try to fill me head with words
I cannot translate a falsehood
Into anything that's good
