Never Bloom

He left us to suffer for the sins that grew within our hearts
greif stricken I fell on my knees and I cried facing the soil beneath me
Tears of blood, tears of misery, tears of sorrow

Sadness not for the loss of life
But sadness for those who I held dearly within my heart
They are now in heaven
and I'm here suffering
Envy for those who received the gift of paradise

I am a sinner
These wings will never bloom
The dead have turned to dust and returned to the earth
There souls sent to the deepest confines of haites
I too will meet the same fate
I didn't live for god
We didn't live for god
In the end all that awaited us was death and eternal damnation
Our wings will never bloom

The depths of our sins were to great.
The price for sin is death
We abandoned the gift of God
we denied eternal life
I walk through the valley of death day in and day out
Yet I fear evil
I have no God to use as a protector
he have turned his head on me
Is this how Jesus felt when he was on the cross suffering for our sins?
God did indeed turn his head on him
But Jesus was not in the wrong
He suffered for a righteous cause
I'm suffering for my failure to follow his words

That is why my wings will never bloom
