the tree of new life lyrics – dark sermon

i drag behind me a rope
so laden with sorrow
that i can barely take another step
without falling to my knees

i drag it in the dirt
my feet kick up dust as my rope settles it
i seek no answers
only peace

in the distance
there is a single tree
salvation
the rope must meet the branch
the rope must meet the branch

i have traveled from afar
i am weary, but i must keep my pace
the rope must meet the branch
in the same way it has met my neck

i will earn my death
i will earn my death
i will earn my death

you cannot deny me the right to take my own life
i will earn my death
i refuse to be robbed of my own suicide
