You have become a malicious liar that breaths for attention,
playing charades, wearing the head of a lamb. My days consumed by nights of you.
Howling at the moon as if you were wounded, but no,
you’re the one showing teeth, ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you cry wolf.
Howling at the moon, but no, you’re showing teeth.
We know. You’re ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you cry wolf.

8,064 hours of conspiracies. 200 months which brings me 17 years of lies and betrayal.
The truth. Never seen. Never told. Never known.
You’ll never tell the truth. Never seen. Never heard. You’ll never tell the truth.
All I want is the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth. (Oh...)

Queen of hearts. Queen of hearts.
But you are the deceiver with a lying tongue and matching lips.
My heart thirsts for vengeance, but my Father has tought me forgiveness.
If I had not decided to follow Him, I’d devour you like a lion, leaving your bones out to dry.
I’d put you through the same hell you put me through, pouring out conspiracies and lies, (and lies)
but this world will remember me for all that I’ve done and all that I’ll be.

The victim in me is dead. I am reborn. The victim in me is dead. I am reborn.
So even though you call me self-righteous and call my beloved treacherous,
there is one thing to take away:

Leveler, make level the road for the righteous.
Leveler, make level the road for the righteous.

I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love. Love.
I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love. Love. Love.
I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love. Love. Love....

    General CommentThis song is DEEP! Probably my favorite besides Poor Millionaire. This song shows how Jake practices his Christianity and is forgiving this 'Queen of Hearts'.

    One thing that attracted me to this song is the line
    "My heart thirsts for vengeance,
    but my Father has taught me forgiveness.
    If I had not decided to follow Him,
    I’d devour you like a lion, leaving your bones out to dry."
    This line is what makes this song so deep, leaving your bones out to dry is showing how badly he hated this person, but his self control and trust in God.
    "You have become a malicious liar that breaths for attention,
    playing charades, wearing the head of a lamb. My days consumed by nights of you.
    Howling at the moon as if you were wounded, but no,
    you’re the one showing teeth, ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you cry wolf.
    Howling at the moon, but no, you’re showing teeth.
    We know. You’re ready to feast on newborn beginnings as you cry wolf."
    I believe this is talking about how the person acts innocent (head of a lamb), and that he stays up late at
    night unable to get the words she said about him or others (IDK what yet). 2nd part is talking about how
    she is really the attacker and not the innocent one

    8,064 hours of conspiracies. 200 months which brings me 17 years of lies and betrayal.
    The truth. Never seen. Never told. Never known.
    You’ll never tell the truth. Never seen. Never heard. You’ll never tell the truth.
    All I want is the truth, the truth, the truth, the truth. (Oh...)
    I believe he is talking about a friend hes known for a long time (a girl), but I dont think that they were
    in a relationship.

    Queen of hearts. Queen of hearts.
    But you are the deceiver with a lying tongue and matching lips.
    My heart thirsts for vengeance, but my Father has taught me forgiveness.
    If I had not decided to follow Him, I’d devour you like a lion, leaving your bones out to dry.
    I’d put you through the same hell you put me through, pouring out conspiracies and lies, (and lies)
    but this world will remember me for all that I’ve done and all that I’ll be.
    'Queen of hearts' is the friend/person he is venting at, and in this he is sayin that he wants to take vengeance
    on everything she said (probably about him), but God 'Father' has taught him that he should be forgiving.


    "The victim in me is dead. I am reborn."
    I think it means that he used to fall for the lies, but now he is a 'new person' and doesnt fall for it

    So even though you call me self-righteous and call my beloved treacherous, there is one thing to take away:


    "Leveler, make level the road for the righteous."
    Is talking about God making a way for his followers

    "I forgive you, queen of hearts, for through me, He will show you true love.
    Love."
    This lyric is showing how he forgives her because it is what God would want him to do/what God WOULD do.
