lyrics

facing our father with my hands open, hoping holy words will fix whats broken.
we stand and rehearse his drunken service, hoping every verse will serve some purpose.
hope won't be enough to keep us kneeling.
they swear the tap is blessed but the self-ordained, by the self-proclaimed.
they swear this lives a test, while killing in his name and passing down the blame.
(so gracious, though my faithlessness, so invitingly warm)
I'm only what you've handed down, unlearned.
they swear the tap is blessed but the self-ordained, by the self-proclaimed.
they swear this lives a test, while killing in his name and passing down the blame.
our holy days are over.
we are fatherless. for hope, we pray.
ghost, have we met before? I'm unsure which words are yours. I'm unsure.
