Your scarlet soaked and bold
And the sheep's eyes locked to mine, sink to my bones
Though your lips still drip, intentions, they keep me wanting more
It's rising against all the walls we built for falling

All the walls we built just stand in vain to draw You near
It's the wool to hide the wolves and under these toes
From where we last spoke, Your words laid so firm
But I did not shed that skin like You said

When the mason neglects the mortar
Looks become deceiving
And when the bricks start to fall
I'll be the one crawling down this road so dark

Vices like vipers, speak in whispers
My heel's the meat to sink their teeth
Like the viper I kept when You said, "Let go"
This is what it took for me to see

When I am God, this church is unsound
Slithering in the shade of a sinking church
Surprise is no excuse for the traps that You left in the wake of warning
So this is the warning, you fall to learn and to the girls

You're worth more than the cheap words
You see your body as beauty but your pulse is worth more
Hear me, it's not what it seems, though the feeding tastes of honesty
This is the warning, you're just a hit to coax my urgency

Why do we keep what holds us?
Why do I keep what holds me down?
Lose the weight of defeat
It's time to stand your ground

Vices like vipers, speak in whispers
My heel's the meat to sink their teeth like the viper
I kept when you said, "Let go"
Since all the alibis of ignorance are void

This, my lust, the pornos and the sluts
Take my lust, this world's love
Great Councilor, take what's left
Great Councilor, take what's left of me
