Lo my angel curses my name
I set her run run run running free
She left me in her cage
It was serene
A black hysterical dream
This rose don’t wanna grow
But still I tend the garden piously

Penitent before your cross
Thou shalt not love and idol false
A fool
But baby I prayed for you

On my knees
Beggin absolution for my needs
You wanna run free on a kissing spree
But stop me when I try to leave
My love most high
Who you always texting someone on the sly
While you scrutinize my appetites with ever watching jealous eyes

Never had no faith
till my delivery unto your grace
it’s true
but baby I prayed for you

how so bad did I need
someone to give my heart something to believe
then when unrighteous eyes fell covetous on mine
I was born again a lover Of the holy perfect other
Who loved at once my faith Which soon all had turned to hate
For in order to substantiate The lies of dedication
I put on the mean deceiving face You were trying to hide

Dark heart of mine
Always on the hunt for love divine
Run run fast from another past
Another lover crucified
You say I never loved you true
But I’m unholy just like you
I always knew
So baby I prayed for you
