Oh, your songs are sad and filled with praises
and they make the walls of this jail collapse around us
but I still can’t leave - my chains are caught around me!
So I will try to look off in the distance, but the tunnel is dark - there’s no light at the end of it
I’ve never been a desperate man, yet here I am!

So lower me down through the roof
‘cause I can’t walk to you

Oh my god, have you named me isaac and led me along,
up onto the mountaintop so I can see if you think I’m worth a single thing?
Is there a ram that has come to take my place for me?
Or, will I see the wrath I dream so frequently?
I’ve always been the lesser man, so here I am!

Lower me down into the pool
cause I can’t walk to you
no, I can’t walk at all
