The distant sound of mercy ringing in my eyes
Far from the masses fades away
Closed my eyes and waited for the pain to pass
Recalled a little story heard today

I'm feeling trapped, so locked away
Caught in a downward spiral
In, into the black, I won't be back
Yeah, I'll be here a while

Don't need to see your face
Don't need to hear a word you say
Don't need to know your name
Or why you're here

Shadows of the past appear in front of me
Into the masses disappear
The sound of silence ringing for a greater good
To this point I can't believe my ears

Yeah, coming unwrapped, starting to fray
Walking the final mile
In, into the black, I won't be back
Choose to be here a while

Then I saw your face
And I heard the words you said
Then I recalled your name
And why I'm here

When I look into your eyes and saw how much you cried
And I had a revelation
The pain wouldn't pass, the scars they would last
Into God's creation
Blessed secrets holding me
Then we all closed our eyes and laid down and sighed
Live young die free

Distant chime of mercy ringing one last time
Into the masses turns to clay
Molded into what is now the greater good
To close just the story yesterday

I don't need to see your face
Don't need to hear a word you say
Don't need to know your name
Or why you're here

A child of a liar put his hands into the fire
And they called it dis contention
And a man with the word repeated what he heard
And led to mass confusion
Blessed secrets, agony
Then the child closed his eyes and laid down and died
Live young die free
