I have taken like a thief
Just to buy my relief,
But even so, even so,
Grace divine.

I have murdered your sweet trust,
But now I'm burning in my lust,
But even so, even so,
You are mine.

I have drank from her cup,
I have filled my body up,
But even so, even so,
I feel fine.

I have mocked your sweet grace,
I have slapped you in your face,
But even so, even so,
You are mine.

I have fallen, weak and lame,
I have cursed your holy name,
But even so, even so,
I know my lines.

But you whisper deep inside,
And I scream back from where I hide,
That even so, even so,
You are mine.

Even so, even so,
You are mine.

    General CommentThis song is my epitaph.
    Hopefully.
    In a nutshell, it's about the futility of fighting with God.
    Also, it chronicles my (somewhat) ongoing battle with painkillers.
    I sometimes contemplate changing the line "I have slapped You, in your face" to "I have put You, in your place." but I think I like the cringe-worthiness of the original line.
    I am the only Christian in this band.
    The rest of them are all going to roast in hell.
    Especially Troy.
