lyrics

I have blasphemed
While I've told the truth
I am a hypocrite
That once said he loved you
The little lies that calm the waters
That stillness still drowns the same

My failures built the beams
But my conscience was foundation
That house stood one good night
And then began to shudder
The fault lines were not to blame
It's not you, it's me, just the same

St. Stephen
Is there a chance
You will ever get even?
Or do you gotta kill the man
Who fits into the plan
Of an earthly life worth living?

At the banquet I intend to give a speech
Go ahead and let me talk
Until I start to preach
The crowds eyes will listen
But their ears will never see
That I'm sleepwalking in forgotten youthful dreams
I once stood for something
Even I could believe
The futures are not to blame
I am either damned or I am saved

St. Stephen
Is there a chance
You will ever get even?
Or do you gotta kill the man
Who fits into the plan
Of an earthly life worth living?

Riches I never had
But if I somehow was
Able to amass a fortune
Singing songs of only love
I'd give it all away
This soldier was never meant for sleep

St. Stephen
Is there a chance
You will ever get even?
Or do you gotta kill the man
Who fits into the plan
Of an earthly life worth living?
