Blood and Bread

Your mouth keeps moving  
With nothing really to say  
You're running out of time  
It's too late to start to pray  

Your eyes keep blinking  
But still you don't see  
I don't need another savior  
You're nothing new to me  
 
Another fallen angel, another hero taken  
Grab a corner and carry the weight  
Love the name and forgive the crime  
Curse the sky and seethe with hate  
 
There's dust and blood on the floor  
Keep digging in your fingernails  
Scratch and claw at my soul  
Another one to kill, another one to fail  
 
Memories shattered by reality  
Screaming through the empty hallways  
Congested consciousness lies to the heart  
Who says they love you anyways?  
 
Another fallen angel, another hero taken  
Grab a corner and carry the weight  
Love the name and forgive the crime  
Curse the sky and seethe with hate  
 
Wisdom beyond years plays on naivete  
I trusted you, you lied to me  
No words exchanged  
Just severed honesty  
 
Lamb to the slaughter  
I've bleed out into your cup  
Drink me dry and feed me promises  
Give me enough strength to give up  
 
Another fallen angel, another hero taken  
Grab a corner and carry the weight  
Love the name and forgive the crime  
Curse the sky and seethe with hate  

How I wish I could  
Oh, how I wish I could  
Hang you with your halo  
Now I know I'm  
Oh, I know I'm not your kind  
The jagged pill you can't swallow  
 
It rains on both you and I  
How the hell are you dry?!  
It's time I finally say  
It's time you finally go away!!  
 
I'm not your kind!  
I'm not your son!  
I'm not yours at all!  
 
I'm not your savior!  
I'm not the hand to reach for!  
When you finally fall!  
 
Another fallen angel, another hero forsaken  
Grab a corner and carry the weight  
Love the name and forgive the crime  
Curse the sky and seethe with hate
