Reaching out for Your comfort inside
Pull back, release my breath as fearful eyes watch the sky
Watch the sky

Uncertainty fills my mind with thoughts of doubt
So many years have passed only to be left out
Feelings come and effects follow
Only the truth now remains
Though my chosen path may be uncertain,
His promises on my life He contains

"Righteousness won't carry you.
Take hold my words, this you knew.
You've tarried long for a hopeless gain,
suffered for a dead savior's name.
Clinch your fist, grit your teeth
while I dismember your belief,
and please enjoy my own display.
Choose whom you serve this very day."

The embers have fallen, no time for recompense
What damage has been done plagues my waking innocence
These scars that I now bear will testify for my life
Forever stained, fresh blood on your hands
I pray that you will make it right
Don't tell me all your lies
How these memories have all been made in vain
This new life, the lost love
All these things have come to pass us by
Returning to my roots to recant the life that I once knew,
and make it plain that my own fate is not controlled by you

"Pardon the interruption.
Such a stirring, eloquent speech you give.
But apart from our dictated ways,
you simply have no reason to live.
So don't tell me, my son, that you've turned your back.
Rejection for our sacred tradition.
You've chosen and been swallowed whole by such treachery.
Just the thought of your disbelief convinces me that there's no hope.
You're dead to me, blotted out, erased from memory.
Don't you see that this is now the end?
Now join your family!"

Squint, blinding white light
Only you shall change tonight
My mortality, I give no trust
But my life is not my own
Your pale white stare has more than convinced me
Now will I take my leave
Now will I take my leave
My leave
My leave
Now will I take my leave
