I Am the End - Crucifixion Part II

This song is by Worship and appears on the album Dooom (2007).

Too weak to carry on
My bones struggle
Towards the soil

I know the end
I know all's in place
For my departure
My sacrifice

Bear me like a saint
With bloodletting eyes
To slaughter

I had done what I think I was born for
I had planted a seed to grow and tear down the sins of my blood
But I was born from guilt and I was to return the same way
My mind left me and the infernal pain behind
As my flesh and the nails united
There was a scream somewhere
And my cross was raised against the muted twilight moon"

The cave in the mountains would see them wake again
And again, unmoved. This time, something changed
Carven into the rock above a bed of stone
These words would meet the Newborn: "Brother, this is my legacy. I woke as you have
Torn from his flesh, as you are
I tried to stop them as you will
I failed, but you will prevail. And here is how..."
