lyrics

We traced the steps
Into the depths
Our garden gone
Like a childhood song

Hung on the hooks
Of St. Peter’s Cross…

The morning fades
To darker shades
The path is thorns
For the earthly born

Hung on the nails
Of St. Peter’s Cross

We’ve lost our souls
As the church bell tolls
Its human nature
Against our creator
We’ve crucified
And deified
But to ourselves
We are locked outside

Hung by the ideals
Of St. Peter’s Cross

But in our hearts
The darkest parts

Can love still dwell
In this dismal hell?

The raven’s beak

Its tethered claws
Broke as it died
With false humility
The prophets gathered
To praise the loss and cost
Of St. Peter’s Cross
With false humility
The prophets gathered
To praise the loss and cost
Of St. Peter’s Cross

They looked away
To sheltered days
Never seeing
The praise we paid
And as vultures
Content to perch
From this lie
They wrought the church

Looking down from golden clouds
They wove beauty her burial shroud
Looking down from golden clouds

Left to indulgences to compensate the l
