Whoremonger: Epilogue To Adultery

This song is by Sleeping Giant.

Witness to a youthful lust who made the same mistake
Guess he didn't know it would cost him everything he'd make
Spied that young one through my window, oh the subtle path
He didn't know the loss, he didn't see the cost
It will cost him everything

Now he can't find and he can't understand why
But you see, 'cause you cheat and believe that you're free but you know
Now he can't find the way, he can't find the way around
It'll cost him his life, so wave goodbye
She'll kill you with a smile and slit your throat with a wink of her eye
Why, oh, brutal heart for a lie
I was that man once, I tell you the truth, I'd rather die. Die

He didn't see why, can't he see the truth
'Cause adultery feels so good, it takes away you
Disciples would you rise, I know there is sin you despise
And say no, well I guess you'll never know now
So wave goodbye and live like it's so

Now he can't find the way, he can't find the way out
I was that man once, I'd rather die
Why can't you understand why I only got one heart
Oh, precious wellspring of life, why, oh, why will you die?
Leave this filth and pain in the past, leave the darkness behind
Jesus Christ, no other love, why?
Now you'll finally know your own mind, you can't run this time
You're desperate to rest in the peace of the light
I'll be kneeling right there at your side
Battering hell now I declare tonight
Hell relinquish your hold on my sons
