These beckoning words, have I heard them right?
Should l pay for my sins by taking a life?
I can almost savor the brilliant light
There’s not much time so I best get started tonight
Monuments of life, I will soon find
When salvation comes, I will be the one

In the dead of the night I can find what I need to make this sacrifice
I slowly enter the room where they sleep
Not a sound I can make, they are mine for the taking
I hesitate as I hear footsteps creep up from behind
There she is at the doorway frozen, staring wide-eyed at the horror looming
Mother tries to scream but she can’t say a thing; my god is with me
Yes this is what it looks like… just turn your head, it’s for the best
These beckoning words, I heard them right
Paid for my sins by taking a life
I can almost savor the brilliant light
There is not much time so I make the sacrifice
Monolithic hand, take this offering and invocation
I’ve killed for you, just make this suffering a buried memory
Come while they still sleep
Now, bathed in light, you have arrived
Begin to trade my eyes for those that only see perfection
