• Relient K - Forgiven
    From the album Five Score and Seven Years Ago

    Oh yes, I know this tension that you speak of
    We're in the palm of a hand making a fist
    It'd be best for one of us to speak up
    But we prefer to pretend it does not exist

    And you can't see past the blood on my hands
    To see that you've been aptly damned
    To fail and fail again

    Chorus:
    Cause we're all guilty of the same things
    We think the thoughts whether or not we see them through
    And I know that I have been forgiven
    And I just hope you can forgive me too

    So don't you dare blame me for
    Prying open the door
    That's unleashed the bitterness
    That's here in the midst of this
    Sometimes we live for no one but ourselves

    And what we've been striving for
    Has turned into nothing more
    Than bodies limp on the floor
    Victims of falling short
    We kiss goodbye the cheek of our true love

    And you can't see past the blood on my hands
    To see that you've been aptly damned to fail and fail again

    Chorus:

    And you can't see past the blood on my hands
    To see that you've been aptly damned
    To fail and fail again

    Chorus:
