"Forgiven" as written by Kwabena Adjepong, Tom Barnes, Peter Kelleher, Ben Kohn and Thomas Havelock....
Blood and dust
Sweat and smoke
I hold my tongue until I choke
Bring myself to pay for these stones that feel, the hurt we feel
What's a man without a soul waiting for life?

Cut me down,
and watch me bleed
I made you king, so shame on me
Unbroken ground, sacrificed
The lost to found, fools paradise
But I'm a man who needs to hope
You can't make me hype

I won't let myself be forgiven
I won't say that I've done wrong
You say I'm stuck in my ways, but out of my mind
Did what I did 'cause I had to survive
I won't let myself be forgiven
I don't need to justify

If it's too much for you to take
Then save yourself and walk away
'Cause we can't stand on shaken stone
Head to head, two hearts alone
We've got nothing else to hold
But it don't make it right.

I won't let myself be forgiven
I won't say that I've done wrong
You say I'm stuck in my ways, but out of my mind
Did what I did 'cause I had to survive
I won't let myself be forgiven
I don't need to justify

I can't deny, baby you to save me
What if I need just to fall?

I won't let myself be forgiven
I won't say that I've done wrong
I've been stuck in my ways, but out of my mind
Did what I did 'cause I had to survive
I won't let myself be forgiven
I don't need to justify
