Lies of Serpents, a River of Tears
by Zao

Album: Where Blood and Fire Bring Rest (1998)
  • Your eyes
    Your eyes
    Your eyes search for me
    Your eyes search for me
    Your eyes search for me
    Your eyes search for me
    Your eyes
    Your eyes search for me

    For so long I've wanted to come home
    Held back by lies of serpents and tongues of brothers
    Turning a child into an enemy
    Turning open arms into closed fists

    I could see the reflection in the tears
    That made their way down Your face
    Onto the ground I kneel upon
    They form a river that overtakes me
    Compassion envelops me
    I forgive and release
    Forgive, release
    Forgiven, released Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
