lyrics: Slave to shame

Slave to shame
 
To the pure, all things are pure.
To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.

(Biblical principle … from Titus 1:15)

Your past is the problem you can’t solve

 

your shame is the prison you must guard

 

you stand in the cell and protect the bars

 

keeping a safe zone round your heart

 

don’t let emotion in or out

 

don’t let them see your walls come down

 

choke on your tears, keep your face calm

 

if they see you jealous, then they must be silenced

​The demon of shame    hides in the shadows
driving your actions    ruling your soul
The angel of darkness ​
​ blinds the impure
their eyes will be melted   their hearts turned to stone

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.

 

Pretense is your prison as you claim to be a victim
of the villain who you name as the target of your blame.
Of all your expectations, perhaps there are a few
that you cling to as excuses… for what you cannot do-
or so you say in your refusal- not that you believe
so you defend it with a rage… of holy sincerity
Well, you know you’re lying & I know you know you’re lying
but those who question your prison… face a consequence​

​The demon of shame    hides in the shadows
driving your actions    ruling your soul
The angel of darkness ​ blinds the impure

their eyes will be melted   their hearts turned to stone

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.

My shame is a my label ​
​for what should not have happened:
the thing I reject, the past I condemn
.
I know the day that life stopped (the hour hell began
).
Now to earn my way to heaven, I must protect my prison​
!
It’s not a fantasy. You just don’t understand me​
​!
The demon crawled in to my mouth… and made me so confused
Unless YOU are the demon, source of my paranoia,the thing I must avoid, chasing me inside my thoughts.
Then I must retreat from you, withdraw for my own safety
Plus I have a tight schedule… if I’m going to save the world.
The only thing preventing me… from the sacrifice I’d love to make…​
​is not some fantasy excuse,​
​ but a demon in my tongue.
Believe me!​

​The demon of shame    hides in the shadows

 

driving your actions    ruling your soul
The angel of darkness ​​ blinds the impure

their eyes will be melted   their hearts turned to stone

 

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.
​​

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.

 

To the pure, all things are pure.

To the ones who are disturbed, offenses are many.
​​To the pure, all things are pure.

 

Your past is the problem you can’t solve
your shame is the prison you must guard
you stand in the cell and protect the bars
keeping a safe zone round your heart
don’t let emotion in or out
don’t let them see your walls come down
choke on your tears, keep your face calm

if they see you jealous, then they must be silenced​
