Slowly burning incense
Flicker of the candle's flame
Again he sits alone
Consoled by his Father's name
He feels it deep inside
As the darkness eats his eyes
Alone and now forsaken
To his god he vainly cries

Blood for blood
Stain the dove
The blade he holds
Driven by love

Plunge beyond the skin
Piercing muscle and bone
Self crucifiction
To save a soul forevermore
If god could slay his own kin
To save a world of fools
Surely one more death
Can save a single man

Blood for blood
Stain the dove
The blade he holds
Driven by love

The cross burned upon his hand
Drags him down
Like the dead
