Forgiven Blood f. Peter Pisano

from by kristoff krane, graham o'brien



Forgiven Blood

I remember so well

when you said to me in turn non-believers would burn in hell

when you told me that scientists were merely under a spell

and the questions I asked were the voice of the devil himself

I tried to picture his face

jesus my savior / my lord

but when I prayed I seen the image from that book on the shelf

it just didn't feel real, or maybe I was just bored.

It was a double edge sword like dying when you are born

It tore me up like the pages I studied over and over

hoping it'd click and that maybe I could think myself back in order

and so I learned it by heart / said all my prayers before bed

grandmother spider up all night weaving that web in my head

you took me under your wing / you kept me within your reach

'till slowly I felt as dead as fish in pelican beak

a burning hell in your speech / delicate / malleable brain

I opened up like a register ready to give you change

I opened up like umbrella afraid it was gonna rain

my mother gave you a hug / my fathers hand you did shake

I put the change in the plate/ you put the blood in my vein

you put the flesh in our mouth / I put my trust in your fangs

reign came sudden

broken chains

kingdom crumbling

for giving blood in vain

forgiven blood in vein
