Behind The Veil

  • What would possess you to justify
    Such dark and twisted ways?
    What kind of monster would come to feast
    When the devil shows his face?
    What does it take for life to change
    And a mind to lose control?
    Cruelly left you to suffer the blame
    After all the lies you told

    I am finding courage in my darkest hour
    I am bent, not broken
    Calling out

    Someone save me, look behind the veil
    Please don't walk away
    Someone save me, bring me home tonight
    I can't face another day

    Can you see the stranger
    Hiding in plain sight?
    Feeding on the chaos
    When the lightning strikes
    There's no redemption
    There's no being saved
    There's no salvation
    For a soul depraved

    You are finding promise in your finest hour
    You are bent, not broken
