no closer than a stranger lyrics – darkest hour

you are a servant to your god
you are a slave to a book
you say you’re just a messenger
but you’ll end up hooked

this place feels like home
walls echo screaming,? no?
this tough love feel
like i’m being choked

dependent on a whim
bow down before him
you suckle righteousness
and siphon lies

this rope feels like home
my mouth is gagged
hands are bound
this tough love feels like i’m being drowned

and in a daze one day
you’ll wake up old and gray
and realize you’ve alienated
those who cared about you

this place feels like home
walls echo screaming,? no?
this tough love feel
like i’m being choked

say you will forgive me again
your pride is the birth of your original sin
say i can be saved again
well, i won’t and i think you know

say you will forgive me again
your pride is the birth of your original sin
say i can be saved again
well, i won’t and i think you know
because of you

you are a servant to your god
you are a slave to a book
you say you’re just a messenger
but you’ll end up hooked

this place feels like home
walls echo screaming,? no?
this tough love feel
like i’m being choked

dependent on a whim
bow down before him
you suckle righteousness
and siphon lies

this rope feels like home
my mouth is gagged
hands are bound
this tough love feels like i’m being drowned

drowned
being drowned
being drowned
being drowned

say you will forgive me again
your pride is the birth of your original sin
say i can be saved again
well, i won’t and i think you know

say you will forgive me again
your pride is the birth of your original sin
say i can be saved again
well, i won’t and i think you know
because of you

no, this is not all for him, it’s for you
the blessed father
tainted blood of a martyr

this is not all for him, it’s for you
the blessed father
tainted blood of a martyr

tainted blood of a martyr
tainted blood of a martyr
tainted blood of a martyr

the blessed father
