Redemption

Breathing takes its toll 
on broken ribs 
a bullet hole 
and 2 slices of a knife's edge

He crawls, close to dying 
keeps moving towards it, 
He's still trying 
to keep it together in his head

2 slices of a knife's edge 
and he made his bed 
But he's still holding it all together 
from inside his head

The pain seems a faraway thing 
as something else 
Takes on a new meaning 
This is his blood dance

He finally finds the place 
of tranquil healing 
Sacred space 
And 2 slices of a knife's edge

It's his death and his rebirth 
within life's cycles 
He finally sees there is no "1st" 
Fully aware inside his head



He lets go of the blood hate 
as the truth enters in 
He lets go of his blood rage
and is granted his Redemption
