Absolution


And the moon was shining soft as silk

In the winter air my soul was still

And the shadows pass and flicker through

In the shapes of ghosts and loves we knew

 

And I’ve marked my sins along my arm

As if seeing them would keep you safe from harm

Cause each chapter’s just a notch you see

This’ll one day be the death of me

 

And we prayed for absolution

For the things that we had done

I’m a slave to retribution

But I’m not the only one

No I’m not the only one

 

I’m just a slave bound to my bedside

Beg for the life I’d never known

And by the sea where the waves will set me free

I’ll be alone

Let the waves awake my soul

I’ll be alone

 

And we prayed for absolution

For the things that we had done

I'm just a slave to retribution

And I’m not the only one

No I’m not the only one
