Thrown Into The Fire

Album: The Sin and the Sentence (2017)
  • Forgive them, father
    For they not know
    My gospel of greed
    Is all for show

    I'd be thrown into the fire
    If they ever learned the truth
    And the congregation weeps (x2)

    Will you bless us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you grace us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you heal us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you save us
    With your mysterious ways

    Forgive me, father
    Lust knows no bounds
    I service my needs
    On hallowed grounds

    I'd be thrown into the fire
    If they ever learned the truth
    And the congregation weeps (x2)

    Will you bless us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you grace us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you heal us
    With your mysterious ways
    Will you save us
    With your mysterious ways (x2)
