before us…great Death stands
our fates held, in quiet hands

visions of you, blind my mind
memories, gravestones, prisons we bloom
tortured by pasts, silence now our eyes
voices, words gone, timbres of dead songs

where green paths lay
and sunlight ends

where prayers failed
here lay hearts dead
the toll for passing is not coin but pounds of flesh

jesus wept…my name
in the garden of love
taste the failure of your words
of the Power and Glory of a faith that’s betrayed us

the culling…the culling of god’s men by souls now set ablaze
Love is the weapon, a fleeting memory
and through this torture, you’ll know that you were mine
alone I walk, where’s your god savior now?

Love is my weapon, my heart now remains free
alone I walk, where’s your god savior now?
