Verse 1

It is so that my transgressions

Have born a withered fruit.

The sun has scorched the rising plants.

Alas, they have no root.

The bleached bones of animals,
A
Bound by leather strips,

Dance through the air with laughter

As I wield this wicked whip.

Verse 2
E C#m
As You did warn me, Cnter,
A
This world has weakened my heart.
B
So easily I disparage,
E
Self-seeking, the work of my art,
C#m
And there You've come to me
A
At the moment I bathe in my sorrow.
B
So in love with myself,
E
Sought after avoiding tomorrow,
C#m
Where do You find the love
A
To offer he who betrays You?
B
And offer to wash my feet
E
As I offer to disobey You?
C#m
Your beauty does bereave me,
A
And how my words do fail.
B
So faithfully and dutifully
E
I award You with betrayal.

The weak and the downtrodden fall on broken legs.
G#5 C#5
As I walk past a smile I cast, fervor in my stead.
A5 E
But my bones like plastic, do buckle backward now.
G#5
I lay in this field by Judas,
E5
And anticipate the plow.
A5 C#5
I can not be forgiven, my wages will be paid,
A/C# C#5 B5
For those more lovely and admirable is
E5
Least among the saved.
A5
And where would I fit, Jesus?
C#5
What place is left for me?

The price of atonement is more than
E5
I've found to offer up as my plea.

No alabaster jar, no diamond in the rough,

For Your body that was broken,

And Your love will never end.
