[Background voice]
"We kill the faggots
We kill the lesbians
I said, God damnit, we kill 'em all!"

We were taught to kneel and bow our heads
Tried simply standing up instead
Heard rumors of transparent legs
and walked for days and days

These days we reached for so much more
We reached a point where we can't go home
Alone we wait here underground
Admist the others waiting

So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
But all I can say, is we go our own way
We go our own way
So save us...

We would guess you were the chosen one
Right place, you were the first born son
Once questioned, stable state of mind
Has spent some time in the gutter
A full collapse, a caving in
Just wait for faith to kick in
Lost track of time as I stood in line
Admist the other believers

So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say, is we go our own way
So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say, is we go our own way
We go our own way, so save us...

Over and over and I still cannot believe
[That we can't save ourselves]
Give me a chance up on the cross and watch me bleed
[And I'll ask for help]
Having faith in something you can't see
[Takes something else]
Over and over and I still cannot believe
[We can't save ourselves]

So pray then, and if it makes you feel safe
All I can say, is we go our own way
So pray then, if it makes you feel safe
All I can say, is we go our own way
Send your prayers our way
To save us...

[Background voice]
"Kill 'em again
Because they didn't die hard enough]
