Hollow Promise

lyrics

Should I come empty handed?
No redemption can I meet
Of no service to sovreignty
Lay no trophies at your feet

The sorrows that the earth bestow
Can no heaven balm
All the woe that cloaks and binds us
Cannot 1,000 virtues calm

The hollow promise of a hollow psalm

And their need for shepherds
Will see them duelly fleeced
Their hides provide in bitter times
Warmth for the priests

Amid moth eaten scrim
Behind shines the heavens
It's glow growing dim
Illuminate on secret shame
Casting shadows across
A box of dirt which bears your name

The sorrows that the earth bestow
Can no heaven balm
All the woe that cloaks and binds us
Cannot 1,000 virtues calm

The hollow promise of a hollow psalm
