Could they not have know what they have done
Sentenced the only pure thing left, that graces
The dirt on this earth to death
Betrayal is an easy way out and let a filthy tyrant run free
Had we have ever know that He’d still love us
After we turned our backs and left him in the shadows
Where the sun still shines as bright as a thousand torches
Open the gate rip the blood stained clothes from his back
Still he wore courage tightly wrapped around his neck
Marching to death, marching, echoes through a God forsaken city cut like knives
Their words killed, I killed you

(I built this tower for you, this tower for you, this tower for you
I built this tower for you, this tower for you)

You know love and you know me
The sharpened end of a blade brought safety
Drenched in grace you took the fall along with your life
Innocence dies today and I’m quite read to leave here
You carried me while we buried you

(I built this tower for you, this tower,
I built this tower for you)

You bleed love, true love I found in you

Oh my God why’d you kill him we crucifix him over and over again
Don’t you know that he loved you?
But I’m coming home clean of all the dirt you thought you had on me

    General CommentAh, I love this song. Listening to it the week before Easter makes it 10 times more fantastic. To me, it speaks volumes about the sacrifice of Christ, that He died in innocence to take away our filth. Pretty amazing.
