The Anchorite
(Oh, Father, I’ve sinned against you, against you)
I’m waiting alone for daylight to come
Loosing the sense of reality
I’m locked inside my dungeon of stone
No one can set me free
Moldy bread I shall give it to rats
Sleeping on hayI can see my dreams
Jesus tells me his new parable
Every day I’m getting closer to his devoted fold
(Father, I’ve sinned against you, you)
These words I speak to you are hidden in my heart
I separate the wheat from the chaff
But I still don’t know who I am
In this world of filthy lucre that was built for greedy seers
Will your angels or their demons whisper in my ear
I discarded my damn old judgments
Meted length of my martyr’s rope
In raiment of faith I’ve robbed my bareness
In raiment of genuine gold
I am the one who saw Satan
In the likeness of God
And it was pretty fix
My candles are still burning out
Illumining in darkness the shades of basilisks
(Father, I’ve sinned against you)
I’m on my knees
My eyes are filled with solemn tears
Oh Lord, please
Release me from my deepest fears
A vestige of your divinity
Penetrates through these limestone walls
With a touch of the Holy trinity
An angel of the morning comes
At daybreak all the shadows shall hide behind the door
Cherubs shall fly in the vault of heaven
I'm longing to rejoice
This divine dawn
I’m on my knees.
I’m on my knees.
My eyes are filled with solemn tears
I’m on my knees.
I’m on my knees.
Release me from my deepest fears
