Watching the darkness overflowing my mind,
I seek sanctuary between the walls of a church.
The scriptures shall help understand my existence
As I walk through the darkness with confidence.
I surrender my weakness to the messengers of God
Believing a voice of spiritual guidance will help me.
But as I search deeply to obtain fulfillment
I find myself lost in unknown surroundings.
Your presence alone claims to be my savior
As I become secluded from external influence.
I trust you to be my friend and my protector,
I enlighten you with my faults and doubts.
Youíre the master observer of my behavior
As you begin to play upon my weaknesses
And I ignore the degree of manipulation,
Iíve submitted myself to be cared by you.
This place you call home is a code of conduct,
You changed the rules and I never noticed.
My independent thoughts are considered sinful,
I must to repent to avoid eternal damnation.
Youíre twisting the scripture to your desire
Deliberately misreading the Biblical passages
And now, youíve playing the card of God
I am punished if I question your authority.
I want to leave this place of phobia
Subconsciously knowing it destroys me
But I cannot renounce without hesitation,
Your sly sophistication controls my mind.
Who are you to claim wrong from right!
Help me say if I am worthy to live or die.
Who are you to use the name of God!
I leave with confidence your sins of control.
