Tonight you will get what you wish
Your will done, your need fulfilled
Through a masochistic perversion
Your soul united with your god

You've tried helping the weak
You've tried enlightening the sightless
You've tried repenting your sins
You've tried loving your enemies

Maybe letting the sinister blood out
Will leave your soul cleansed and pure
Maybe your commitment to him will be seen
And the gates to eternal life opened

Or maybe you'll just hang cold and pale
On the cross you had yourself nailed on
Through the higher art of bleeding
The god inside your head dies with you

And So You Bleed

Still he's too far away from you
Still you remain untouched by divine grace
Still your souls keeps crying for more
Still you need to get closer to your lord

But you haven't tried suffering
But you haven't tried physical remorse
But you haven't tried following your messiah
But you haven't tried dying for your sins
