A thousand tears, a thousand eyes
My friends and I, we cry
Religion has raped us
Forever we rehearse the song

That strips our throats to blood
We bare our souls in transparency
But our velvet tongues will never
Please their ears

But are you holding on?
I'm holding on
Look at us dying
A field of human crucifixes,

Weathered and fading
Heaven hears nothing
As the priests are wailing
And they're crushing our souls

We feel our lives
Sifting through our hands
But we're holding on
Look at my face

Look at God in my eyes
We stand
