I used to pray for rescue by burning up my pain
That's the only kind of prayer I knew back then
It was a fire of desperation for any wings in flight
Like a beacon from my lifeboat late at night

As long as I was waiting under the empty sky out there
I would feel that sorrow burning like a rescue flare
I'd fear there's nothing to believe in, nothing that would care
And the fire of desperation that's my silent prayer
That's my silent prayer, that's my silent prayer

I wanna smash the windows, the congregation's asleep
I wanna feel the wind blow and let the spirit free
I can't, I can't stand to sit there where their God is pocket-size
I wanna feel what's real and will not compromise

This rage I blaze inside me into the empty sky out there
When I feel that sorrow burning like a rescue flare
I fear there's nothing to believe in, nothing that would care
And the fire of desperation, that's my silent prayer
That's my silent prayer, that's my silent prayer

She cuts 'til she's bleeding to scream out from her skin
And he tightens the tourniquet deep within
Friends fall so fast we call it suicide
You just scream in silence over time

Oh, this pain you blaze inside you into the empty sky out there
When you feel that sorrow burning like a rescue flare
You fear there's nothing you believe in, nothing that would care
And the fire of desperation, that's your silent prayer
That's your silent prayer, that's your silent prayer

That's your silent prayer
That's your silent prayer
That's your silent prayer
