Dear Father Lyrics

8. Dear Father (7:20)
A childhood innocence was drowned in your tears
The demons that you fought are feeding your fears
The poisoned secrets of your life stand revealed
The truth destroys you, it's no longer concealed

Dear Father forsaken, you know what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin
Yeah, in ruin, yeah

You preyed upon my flesh them prayed for my soul
Belief betrayed by lust the faith that you stole
Indoctrination by a twisted desire,
The catechism of an evil messiah

Dear father forgive me, I know just what I'm doing
In silence this violence will leave your life in run
Yeah, in ruin, yeah

Preacher of theocracy hiding your hypocrisy
Under a false sanctity, holy phoney empathy
You have taken my life, now it's your turn to die

Can you sleep at night?
When you close your eyes do you think of all the pain from your lies?
Or do you deny you're responsible for the victims of the sins you devised?

What you gonna tell them when they ask you?
Well then this is your conscience pure in your hear?
There is no exemption when you seek redemption for all the lives that you've torn apart

Your molestations for the cross you defiled,
A man once holy now despised and revised
You took possession while confessing my sins
And now you have to face whatever death brings, yeah

Dear father forsaken, you know what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin, yeah
In ruin yeah, yeah, yeah
In ruin yeah.
