A Million Gods - Lyrics by Conception

don't hesitate to hope, they said come close,don't be afraid lovedon't seem to find it's way to where you stayyou have to feel the light,they said it's easy to forgetlove is really far awayfor a dying of todaymother mary comfort in a cross of silverhard to pick a saviour from a million gods'cause when you settle for a new dimensionyou'll never find the one your dying forlast temptation; touch me before you close your eyesdie a martyr to your principles'cause you're the only god who's visible tonightonce you have crossed the courseyou seek when your resistance'weak when your goal is left behind yousoon recline eyes of the sourceyou're searching for can't see you anymoreand salvation's far away for a dying led astraymake another mountainmove before it's over try to pick a saviourif you know his name but mary's cryingon the edge of heaven deliberation's bad for faith she claimslast temptation; touch me before you close your eyesdie a martyr to your principles'cause you're the only god who's visible tonightthey all seem to be the sameso hard to decidewhen a million gods retain all there is to findthere's another universe behind each blinding flaresuddenly they'll all emergebut none of them would care
