Nothing's ever changed, you still turn away
You've washed your hands, you've made that all too clear
You just keep on living this lie

You refuse to see, you're denying me
The cross I bear but you don't seem to care
Even Judas knew he had lied

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name my dear

I'm sorry if you can't stand the naked truth
All you see is how you want it to be
So you keep on living your life

Release me from this cross after all these years
Oh call my name and help me with this weight
Even though it comes far too late

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why I'm still calling your name
And I wonder, oh I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call

Why? Why?

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why I'm still calling your name
And I wonder, oh I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call

    General CommentI've heard alot of arguing over this song, some saying it's pro-religion/Christianity and is to balance out TTBTR and some it goes along with TTBTR as a warning against following a belief system set up by others.
    Personally I'm onclined to the more pro-religious part of that argument purely because that's the way the lyrics lead, but personally I think it's actually about a relatiionship or friendship in which one partner feels isolated by the other or betrayed and the religious references are just metaphors for the feelings of betrayel eg, the Judas reference and the 'In my heart I still hope you will open the door' bit.

    But that's just my take, whatever anyone else thinks is good too.
