The lies are hard to spread thin
But it's so easy to control
Weakness is your savior, but there's nothing left to save
This family tradition passed down on fear
Unconditional love for a stranger?
Nails driven in me, for I have sinned
Your ambition bleeds on a cross
Security bleeds on a cross
Your hopes bleed on a cross
Your life bleeds on a cross
Nails driven in me, for I have sinned
I'd kill for nothing, you'll die for anything
Easier said than done, so easy to take the fall
A scapegoat for all your insecurities
Excuse me; a hero; man made god; for all your insecurities
Walk that sunday tightrope
When the safety net fails who will you follow?
Another sheep has fallen prey
Your choices made with security in mind
When the safety net fails who will you follow?
A sacpegoat for all your insecurities
Excuse me; a hero; man made god; for all your insecurities
And when the last savior is destroyed
I'll dust myself off and just walk away
As you've taught me
As you've taught us all
A prayer for the dying
A prayer for you
The hopeless

    General CommentWhat a great way to open up the new cd... This song is insane, just like every other. It's weird that I there isn't a song that I don't like on either of their CD's...

    General Commenti think this is about people who believe jesus was more than just a man.
    when they finally realize that he really is nothing more than another human, who will they follow then?
