No one is going to grant you salvation
  until you try and save yourself

Nothing is going to award you redemption
  with cards from others dealt

No one is going to save your soul
  until you set your past on fire

And nothing is going to make you whole
  —until you proclaim the myth a liar

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
