Blind these eyes who never tried 
To lose temptation 
I'm so scared, where's the hesitation? 
You so easily proved that You could save a man 
I am that man 

It's better off this way 
To be deaf, dumb and lame 
Than to be the way I am, I am 
It's better off this way 
Than be groping for the flame 
Than to be the way I am, I am 
Still this tongue for I am hung 
By this wicked notion 
Tame the beast, release 
The noose I've woven 
O, wasted tears dripping from my tongue 
Well I'm hung, hung 


Crooked path you never asked 
You just left me there 
And I deal with the aftermath 
And you don't even care 
O, crooked feet you nimbly meet the place of my fears
