The Invitation

This song is by Betrayal and appears on the album Renaissance By Death (1990).

Freedom is nice
So why do I lock myself in chain?
To live in sin is death
So why does it reign in my brain?
My God of mercy has heard my cry of desperation
I seek His face to free me from this lustful perversion

No more, no more can I live this shame
My thoughts, slave of depravity

Pleasures of wickedness is offered unto me
Impurity's dominion is calling out to be received
The invitation, an offer of sensual gain
Extended arms of death, self control falls to be slain

Plagues with sorrow
Reaching for false dreams
Lies have filled my head
I must run instead
Grace has freed me
Why I feel this need
To go back to a way
Of false love I've played

Resist the devil, he must flee
Resist the touch, God save me
Break the control upon my mind
I'm free indeed, the past behind
Resist the devil, he must flee
Resist the touch, God save me
Break the control upon my mind
I'm free indeed, the past behind

No more, no more can I live this shame
My thoughts, slave of depravity

The idea of pleasures is not always what it seems
An enticing way of seduction has a wage to be paid
The world revelling in their pleasures
Is invithing with appeal
But the devil through this lust
Comes to destroy, kill and steal
