lyrics

REDEMPTION

Tired and hungry, I walked weary
No destination, no homeward bound
Until they dragged me to the river
Held my head under until I drowned

I’m sick and dying Lord and I’m shaking with fear
This has all gone too far, I’m losing what I hold dear
I’m drinking liquor just to face another day
When I’ve downed half a bottle, the world slips away

I’m living a ruin, not mad and not sane
The dreams are all dying then I lose it again

My redemption seems a million miles away
My redemption seems a million miles away

A mother promises her son only death and pain
The pain comes with interest again and again
Now her in the gutter I lay me down to die
I could stand up but I can’t seem to try

I looked for salvation but the savior was gone
In your arms I sought comfort but that fled with the dawn
We live as we dream and we die as we live
A loneliness we can’t forget or forgive
