I fall to my knees at the Throne
Then cover my eyes from the light, from the healing
Bury myself alone

Try to make a new start - be a part
of the church of the Holy Word
where I find my sins atoned

But in the other world flags unfurl
Feel the ever present sense of self
breaking my bones

In the unholy
No sanctuary
In the unholy
No-one to hold me
No-one to hold me

I fall to my knees at the walls of Jerricho
Seeking untruths and delights and darker pleasures
on the altar of bloodied stone

Never turn away only stray to the other side
The side of flesh and bone

Ever recommit - to submit to the Righteous call
from the hills of Evermore

In the unholy
No sanctuary
In the unholy
No-one to hold me
No arms around me

Was given all I needed, or ever tried to get
But easy to lust after, easy to forget
Easy to lust after easy to forget

Time for my repentance
Time for my repentance

From the unholy
No sanctuary
In the unholy
No-one to hold me
No arms around me
