Bless me for I have sinned This is my act of contrition Full disclosure, I'm not sorry Just telling it like it is Father please forgive me I'll give you ten hail Marry's Because it's written, suppose it must be done Make me empty, I'm finished holding on Pound of flesh, and this is what I've found Joke's not funny second time around Finally come full circle I can put down my pen I still can't find absolution Yearning endures, it's creeping in Father please forgive me I'll give you ten hail Marry's Because it's written, suppose it must be done Make me empty, I'm finished holding on Pound of flesh, and this is what I've found Joke's not funny second time around

The tap can hemorrhage ink I'm screaming into the sink The world's ceramic and I'm blocking it back Reflect me silver and black and it's not like drugs Because I feel fine and I just get scared When I get high I've got a plastic machine and I've got it working for me I bought my way out of a problem or two I sing, I sell them to you and it's not like drugs Because I feel fine and I just get scared When I get high
3.
Speak to be heard Self righteous fury Keep preaching to the choir Your own sermon on the mount I want to be heard on the horizon Wake up feeling tired Tired of being wrong Between a hard place and a long way down Take heed and bear witness Less it's an empty gesture An earthly consecration Cannot wait for the divine I want to be heard on the horizon Wake up feeling tired Tired of being wrong Between a hard place and a long way down

I wonder if I'm the same person I was around this time last year How can I be the only one who's thinking "How did I get here?" Can I do better Lord knows I'm trying Did I do better? Oh god who knows Some day I'll find my way out I don't know when I'll find it, but I'll know when i see it You must think it's funny that I'm still trying The joke's on me, it's all I know how to do

Won't be here long, So don't get to know me Not here to stay, it's all temporary Not cut out for this, I feel the hand around my neck and the grip is tightening, making me a nervous wreck No matter what I try, I can't seem to hit the mark Even a dim light can seem bright in the dark. The devil on my shoulder feels like my oldest friend. I've got my hill and boulder, it's always there in the end Don't cry for me I'm already dead Got it all off my chest, there's nothing left unsaid So send me down river, and out to sea Not worth my salt, there's no monument for me. No matter what I try, I can't seem to hit the mark Even a dim light can seem bright in the dark. The devil on my shoulder feels like my oldest friend. I've got my hill and boulder, it's always there in the end
