Lord, how did you do it
Forgive the murderous mob
Restrain your divinity
Let ignorance do its job
To bleed the last drop
Pierced to the core
Seems like wasted mercy
Lord, I don't care anymore

Give them what they want
Retire your thorny crown
Burn the chaff away Lord
It's all meaningless now

Lord, I've been a good soldier
Kept faith within the fray
Gave praise for those who lived
To fight another day
But peace has never come
My heart just grows colder
Forgive my lack of strength Lord
Just wake me when it's over

Give them what they want
Retire your thorny crown
Burn the chaff away Lord
It's all meaningless now
