You want it darker

Publié le par la freniere

You want it darker

If you are the dealer,

I'm out of the game

If you are the healer,

it means I'm broken and lame

If thine is the glory

then mine must be the shame

You want it darker

We kill the flame

 

Magnified, sanctified,

be thy holy name

Vilified, crucified,

in the human frame

A million candles burning 

for the help that never came

You want it darker

Hineni, hineni

I'm ready, my lord

 

There's a lover in the story

But the story's still the same

There's a lullaby for suffering

And a paradox to blame

But it's written in the scriptures

And it's not some idle claim

You want it darker

We kill the flame

 

They're lining up the prisoners

And the guards are taking aim

I struggled with some demons

They were middle class and tame

I didn't know

I had permission to murder and to maim

You want it darker

Hineni, hineni

I'm ready, my lord

 

Magnified, sanctified,

be thy holy name

Vilified, crucified,

in the human frame

A million candles burning

for the love that never came

You want it darker

We kill the flame

 

If you are the dealer,

let me out of the game

If you are the healer,

I'm broken and lame

If thine is the glory

mine must be the shame

You want it darker

Hineni, hineni

Hineni, hineni

I'm ready, my lord
