What sets off a fire in your bones How hollow are your highways The rope whispers my name But, still, cold drowns him out There's no beginning There is no end Just rope I look to your son And then I look to mine One saved me from death The other from life The rope, it whispers my name But, still, cold drowns him out Will he wrap my throat for death Or will he pull me out
Not your messiah I cringe at the sight I won't save you I'm no savior Bottomless pit of lies and vomit Let go Let die Just die I'm no savior I won't save you
The cold truth I spew The bone chill I feel The cold sweat And short breath It's all worthless The light is fleeting with the day My memories torment me Suffocate Suffocating me
I have seen the masses I've seen them gather Bow to the gavel and the master You're quick or you're dead You're blue or you're red There's no fence to be walked Staying silent when you should have fought Hang me high and shake the tree You'll get nothing from me I will lie in this bed I've made Crucified for what I say Crucify me
This fate is blinding These prayers empty I choose the mountain I climb I choose where to lay I fear I'm failing I fear I'm fading It's been weeks since I've seen home To my mother; I am sorry To my father; I am cursed Bury me with all this inside of me When I lay in the dirt Was it worth it? What's my purpose? Hammer the nail
