lyrics

I'd rip my eyes out all to be rid of this
And cut off my tongue just to be clean
Oh, how I know what's inside of me
All the faces of black and gray

Let both my ears fall from their place
And my voice never speak again
If only I could be lost and
Drowning beneath the face of the deep

The things I've lost will never
Return back to me again
I've become sullied with blood
Stained deep into my skin

What a wretched man I am, what hope is there for me?
Folly has stretched his name upon me
If only I were a man of virtue
And my soul free of disgrace

How fit are your fires for the searing of my soul
What a fitting end for me, to be cut off from everything good
Why am I here when I clearly don't belong?
Amidst such grace, apart from well-deserved wrath?

What have I done with all my sin?
That these blood-stained robes surpass the sun?
Why don't you see the wickedness I thrive?
Oh, why don't you see that my every step betrays?

But can such light overcome all the
Darkness buried deep inside me?
Is my soul too dim to see again?
Can grace survive such a violence?
