I'd always lift my eyes just the same as you
I'd come home feeling dead
I'd avoid your gaze didn't feel the pain
As you cut off my head

Always had the same ideas
'Bout who the other one should be
Just never had those same ideas on history

Took me three long years to undo what I'd done
'Till I asked myself for forgiveness
In three long years I realized what I'd become
And I was good and merciful
Told you how to cleanse yourself
And run the race in front of you
I wrote it down
Took me three long years

Couldn't figure why I got picked from the rest
I wondered constantly
Why He held me back to sanctify
I see the lost in front of me

Always had the wrong idea
Anticipating holiness
Just never thought I'd live to see my time pass

Every time you passed I could feel it as my guilty soul was bared
Everyone of us turned pale the moment that they were compared
I still believed from the depths of my heart that I was saved
And I looked every one of the host in the eye and I would pray

To be exiled here, to consider what's been done
And to learn to ask for forgiveness
For three long years, my life had not begun
And when I told Him, He was merciful
Told me the truth about myself
And how to live in spite of me
He wrote it down

He said how to live my life in sight of you
And how to live my life in plain full view
And how to live my life
