"Empty Promises" as written by and James Shanahan....
You came to me with salvation, saying I must repent.
You offer up your redemption, a guarantee for a better life
In your safe world.

Your illusions are comfort for your conscience.
My sacrifices will be made in honor of what is truly sacred.
How can you save me, when you can't save yourself?
You can't save yourself.
