Seat of Mercy

It started when they got me
When I was sentenced to death
You know, I'm almost innocent
And I repeat
I'm not afraid of dying
 
I perceive objects and their surroundings
A tattered cup
A distorted mop
The face of Jesus in my soup
The eerie food
Brought on the cart
With bad wheels
A crooked bone
In my food
All good or not good things ...
 
The seat of mercy waits smiling
And I think my head is burning
And I long for the truth
Proven truth left behind
Eye Eye - tooth for a tooth
But I told the truth
When I long forgot the fear of dying
 
The characters interpreted and categorized
A black tooth
A scarlet mist
The walls are evil - black
It's the sick breath that follows me
It's the sick breath that follows me
It's the sick breath that keeps gathering behind me ...
 
I hear stories from the chamber
 
How Christ was born in the manger
And how he died like a ragged stranger
on the cross
And may I say that it somehow fits
He was a carpenter by profession
Or at least that's what was said to me ...
 
Like my good hand
I tattooed "bad" on her brother's fist
The dirty five
They didn't do anything about it!
 
In heaven is a throne of gold
The ark of his testament is tucked away
A throne, as I heard
Contains the story
Down here it's made of wood and wire
And my body is ablaze
And God is never far away
And God is never far away
 
I sit on the seat of grace
My head is shaved, my head is
And like the moth that tries to fly into the bright light
I step out of life
Just to hide myself in death for a while
And by the way, I never lied ...
 
My deadly hand calls itself EVIL
Wears a wedding ring
Which is GOOD
These are suffering shackles
That grip the rebellious blood
 
The seat of mercy waits smiling
And I think my head is burning
And I long for the truth
Proven truth left behind
Eye Eye - tooth for a tooth
But I told the truth
When I long forgot the fear of dying
 
The seat of mercy ...
