"Procession" as written by and Michael Jason/emmons Williams....
The stench of the hopeless and wounded
The cries that escape from the depths of regret
A bleeding, mass in procession
That fell on the path from which it strayed

A whisper in total darkness
To die at the hands of what we are
A breath escapes from the lifeless
The blind and the feeble of our decay

This is the pain we must suffer..
This is the endless agony..
This is the darkest of secrets..
We give our lives to keep

The light that's surrounding
I am all that you've made me
Their endless desire
Feeds the fire inside me
And all I can ask for
Take this life that you gave me
I'm not your messiah..

The fear that grows like a cancer
Held like a breath and sacrificed
The blood that flows from the wounded
Consumed by the masses who've longed to taste

This is a prayer for the hopeless..
This is an endless tragedy..
This is the darkest of secrets..
We give ourselves to keep

The light that's surrounding
I am all that you've made me
Their endless desire
Feeds the fire inside me
And all I can ask for
Take this life that you gave me
I'm not your messiah..

I pray for redemption
These unanswered cries
In darkness it came to me,
And I breathe
The distant voices sing to me
And everything changes suddenly
And i..

The light that's surrounding
I am all that you've made me
Their endless desire
Feeds the fire inside me
And all I can ask for
Take this life that you gave me
I'm not your messiah..

The life that's surrounding
I am all that you've made me
Their endless desire
Feeds the fire inside me
And I didn't ask for
Take this life that you gave me
I'm not your messiah..

    General CommentNo one's commented on this yet? Damn...well, at one point it sounds like he may be talking to God "I pray for redemption, these unanswered cries" but other than that it soudns kinda like redemption and judgement in general. I may be wrong but that's what I think...

    General CommentIts about someone thats been mentally corrupted by todays complex system. They see the world as an ugly place and want nothing more but to be in a place thats not.

    General Commentit sounds like in the chorus he's crying out to God... "I AM ALL THAT YOU'VE MADE ME" and "TAKE THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE ME "... it sounds like he's surrendering. Also "I pray for redemption" and "the distant voices sing to me and everything changes suddenly " the first verse is probably about how he's been following the masses in sin and he doesn't want to anymore, he wants to follow God. This song was written when they were still a Christian band...
