Lyrics[edit | edit source]

rushing words through sound that's
killing words through pain
question indecision
rules that we'll break
the end no more's a teacher
on his knees
a splinter in jehovah
too hopeless, i'm weak

caution wanes and strengthens
as djehoti speaks
through spittle and goliath
protector of me
misfortune crash you down
tugging you to the sea
misfortune stops your heart
only to heal

hang me on a cross now
hang me on a dream
hang me on my cross to bear
hang me on a seam

hang me on my cross now
hang me on a dream
hang me on my cross to bear
hang me on a seam
