Lyrics

(Source: Theology)

Out of the depths I cry to U, oh lord.
Don't let my cries for mercy be ignored.
If U keep account of sins, oh, who would stand?
But U have forgiveness in your hands.
And I've heard religion say you're to be feared,
But I don't buy into everything I hear.
And it seems to me you're hostage to those rules
That were made by religion and not by U.
And I'm wondering will U ever get yourself free.
Is it bad to think U might like help from me?
Is there anything my little heart can do
To help religion share us with U?
For, oh, you're like a ghost in your home--
Nobody hears U crying all alone.
Oh, U are the one true really voiceless one.
They have their backs turned to you for worship of
Gold and stone.
And to see U prisoner, oh, makes me weep.
Nobody hears U screaming in the streets.
And it's sad, but true, how the old saying goes,
"If God lived on earth, people would break his windows."
I long for U as watchmen long for the end of night.
