lyrics

A beast awoken from within me
Tearing through the binds, it’s showing
Just how buried my poor soul had been
Brilliantly the light shines in
It’s filling me with warmth, and with
A voice more precious, now I beg
Another chance and for absolution

Mind and body through with sin,
But the solemn fact is this, I’ve been
Responsible for many wicked deeds
Clear to me now the path ahead
A journey back into the dread
To face the problems of my past,
And stamp out all the guilt in my chest

I’m learning now the self I want to meet
Here I stand, broken loose and free of all my chains,
I’m casting off, unafraid to face the waters before me
I’m patching all the holes and setting sail

Listen close, I’ve lead you wrong,
I know the past can’t be undone,
But believe me now, this place you’re in
It swallows whole the heart and soul
I know that you’ve got what it takes
So run with it and run away
And with these words come my final farewell
And to all of you who’ve seen this through
Time and time again you ruin
Honesty and aspiration
Thoughtfulness, imagination
Manipulating lives you play your
Money games and hide the truth
The fame you give makes monsters
Never again will I be one of you

As for myself, it’s time to face
All the demons that I put away
Let me prove that I’m a different man
Ashamed of all the lies I said
And choices that I made instead
I’m sorry honey, please forgive
A man whose only longing’s to live

Learning now the self I want to meet,
Here I stand, broken loose and free of all my chains,
I’m casting off, unafraid to face the waters before me
I’m patching all the holes and setting sail

Friends and the like, this is my penance
Starting anew, I am cleansed of their sins
My hands and my heart I offer to you for
Creation of what it is we live for
