So this is how it ends
Those bloody hands that healed so many
Well it's funny how they yell
"So heal yourself"
This is why you came to die in shame
For all those waiting for a meaning
And the sinners who are screaming
"So save yourself"

I call you ransom
Yeah that was my debt that you paid
Jesus, yeah that was my soul that you saved
So save yourself

Oh holy night
The stars are brightly shining

    General CommentIt's not about religion promising something that was never given, it's about everyone else taking Jesus's sacrifice for granted.

    General Commentthis is my favorite song by a love like pi.

    it's so deeply textured etc.

    ...
    with the "jesus" line aside, this is obviously about religion, and probably betrayal.

    religion promised something that was never given.

    General CommentAnd the line is "Yeah, that was my debt that you paid" not "death that you paid"
