What was meant to sleep
Is now awakening
In a second you crush
All that I've tried to rebuild

Insult to injury, time and time again
You play to the gallery
As you act the victim
Self-righteous, self-appointed
Yes I believe
That you believe you're God

So let those without sin
Be the first ones to be crucified
Then let it be known
That you're the one to pity
Instead of those who died

So hear my renunciation of faith

Through all my life
I have crawled on a leash
Never to follow my heart
Or become what I was born to be

A scornful smile
When I found my own way home
Forever criticized
When I failed to achieve your goals
Always too sure of my ground
But am I not
The very image of my God?

Never again shall I drop to my knees
My God owes me an apology


So let those without sin...

Yes, let it be known!
That you're the one to pity
Instead of those who died!
