Saints & Sinners

  • Saints and sinners are but we
    Twisted wrecks of symmetry
    Like broken arrows split
    Against the mindless rift we feed
    Saints and sinners are
    And each other's company we seek

    Though we took our separate paths
    Back to the womb where we collapsed
    On buildings full of living bricks
    Cementing walls a dangerous fix
    Saints and sinners are
    Begrudgers who will never mix

    Contemplating right from wrong
    In retrospect we don't get on
    So Armageddon here we come
    Who are the chosen ones?
    Consequences who you've been
    For in damnation Satan grins

    [Chorus]
    We're saints and we're sinners
    Nothing more than lost beginners
    Both now facing endless falls
    It's hell or heaven cry's
    The pulpits' scorn

    Every saint now has a past
    So may the sinners' future last
    Every ghost still has a haunt
    Where he or she feels they belong
    All possessing tortured souls
    Confessing all that's yet to be
    Saints and sinners are
    Lunatics a vicious breed

    So Armageddon here we come
    Who are the chosen ones?
    Consequences who you've been
    For in damnation Satan grins

    [Chorus]

    We're saints and we're sinners
    Nothing more than lost beginners
    Wise men crank the guillotine
    Where heads will roll for all to see Writer/s: Bridget A Regan, David R King, Dennis Casey, George Edward Schwindt, Matthew A Hensley, Nathen Maxwell, Robert Anthony Schmidt
