Stained glass, a crimson alter
This is the life we get
Take a look, I guarantee you'll decide this is wrong
Caught in a daze of blinding denial
"This is only in my head"
Change the subject, crack a smile
While the children all end up dead

Overlooking the signs, overlooking the signs
As we all fall, one by one
I will never pretend, I will never pretend that all this shit isn't happening
God knows that this is not our fault

A little girl screams in horror
His blood trickles down her face
Innocence fades out through her eyes, she's been wronged
Caught in a daze of blinding denial
"This is only in my head"
Change the subject, crack a smile
Can't you see that there is something wrong?

Overlooking the signs, overlooking the signs
As we all fall, one by one
I will never pretend, I will never pretend that all this shit isn't happening
God knows that this is not our fault

Ride out, right now
Ride out, right now
Run away as fast as you can

The chalice is overflowing
As he drops it from his hands
The stained glass is fucking shattered

Overlooking the signs, overlooking the signs
As we all fall, one by one
I will never pretend, I will never pretend that all this shit isn't happening
God knows that this is not our fault

There'll be no blessing
At this confession
