the divine puppet lyrics – illuminata

prayers to a gentle guardian echo through the air
i sadly treasure every word
locked into a narrow lair
as the shepherd of your herd

dependent souls and wonders to lift them up
i am but the spirit the cause flees with time

just pull on a string
hope, hate, surrender bathing in the twisted splendor
of another deceived king

desperate pleas to a savage master dance within the
wind
hatred in each clouded stare
raging of a world that sinned against a load it cannot
bear

fallen fools poured their blood on my hand
i was just created to turn the other cheek

just pull on a string
hope, hate, surrender bathing in the twisted splendor
of another deceived king
flexible commandments gifts from a hallowed illusion

i am to blame for all cruel fates
i am to praise if fortune smiles
i am the one to bow my head
i am to stand up to all your lies

forever a king with forced crown
deliver me from evil

on my throne above the floods
and watching from a lonely sky
i’d gladly give my heart to you
for one unexpected smile

just pull on a string
hope, hate, surrender bathing in the twisted splendor
of another deceived king
just pull on a string
greed, anger, vice bathing in the pure salvation
raining from my sacrifice
