Take away my rights
Take away my deeds
Take away the words I spoke
When you were in need

Take the face I once knew
And cast it aside
I no longer recognize
The man down deep inside

Terrorize my heart
Beat me to a pulp
Tell me that it’s all my fault
For drinking from the cup

Whip me for transgressions
Barely seen or felt
Use the paddle at your side
Maybe use your belt

Burn me with your hatred
Upon this funeral pyre
Show my little heart inside
The pain that you desire

Ignore the cries I level now
Here upon your heart
Know that I have given all
Each and every part

Here I proclaim my innocence
Bare my heart to you
Never have I meant you ill 
Or tried to break your heart

I see the rage upon your brow
The anger in your eyes
Do not show me anymore
My insides I despise

The words you speak are etched upon
This fragile heart of mine
Like a brand upon the flesh
They have become mine 

Show mercy for this heart of mine
How much more can I take
The truth I wish to show you
Begs me have you wait

No more violence
In our hearts and minds
Only love for mankind
Brings light to the dark
