Pray

 
stoic darkness utter the enchantment
say the spell that makes me hopeful
Our Father Who Art In Heaven Hallowed Be Thy Name
and so I pray to be free from my chains

Lead Me Not Into Temptation
please Father, no wickedness to befall me today
treachery is afoot to my dismay
forgive me for my complaints
I'm tested above my will to take

restraining my heart, I wait
revenge is human
vengeance is yours alone
you see the intentions
while I only see the act

praying for my tormentors
I've done as you asked
pray for those who spitefully use you
and so I have

Father I am hurting to be so odd
the congregation rejected me
many are called but few are chosen
I feel you called me but I didn't make it in

with a wailing and gnashing of teeth
they tear into my flesh
surrounded by outer darkness I wither

my strength is my sword of truth
it defends me
my faith is in the comforter
my heart is broken please send him

I await your judgment
Father, I hate when you compare me to Job
I'm not like him I revolt
complaining often about what I cannot change

it's out of my hands
this is the devil's game
