Barely bit me
Sin has always found a way to stay
the poison trials anyway
Barely bit me
Sin has always found a way to make the saints obey
It's hardly hurting
It's only odd because in some way I've seen this place
It's hardly hurting
It's only odd because in some way I've seen this play out so many ways
I wanted mercy
I wanted proof, like you, that all my chains could break away
It's all frightening, its better off this way
The path appropriate is no longer in the way
Okay it's hit me
The Serpent's Garden overgrown in me
A prophecy
A wanton mercy
A wanted thief
Mother I noticed
One of the men on the cross was allowed to come down
Allowed to come down
Mother I noticed
One of the men on the cross was allowed to come down
Allowed to come down

    General CommentAmazing song, and I love the ending-- it seems like a reflection of his childhood as the fear of the inevitable punishment finally seeps in... you can almost see his emotional state crawling into a fetal position...
