Saints & Sinners Lyrics

11. Saints & Sinners (5:31)
sanctus peccator fit
(translation: saint becomes the sinner)

[Verse 1]
Your rosary you hold so lovingly
Won't pardon thee, no contrition

[Verse 2]
You fell from grace
Like a lamb to the slaughter
You felt disgrace
But you would not falter
Holy man, the angels weep
For what you've done
You kept your face
And your state of honour
Took your place at the sacred alter
You'll be damned
For the innocence you've stolen

You walk the road to Cavalry
Just to find your sanctuary
And your sanctimony
Leads you to the world to come

All angels shed their tears
The unholy souvenirs
The innocence is gone
All the spirits weeping
Blessed now become the meek
The saint becomes a sinner now

[Verse 3]
Your holy creed
You preach so solemnly
Gives no reprieve
From damnation

[Verse 4]
You wash your face in the holy water
You felt ashamed
Yet you would not alter
Holy man, heaven mourns
It's long lost son
Behind your faith, you repel dishonour
Hid away, like a defaulter
By fates own hand, justice for the broken

[Bridge & Chorus]

(Main Solo: Chrism / TK / Chrism / TK)

mea culpa, mea culpa
mea maxima culpa

[Chorus to end]
