"No hope = No fear." - Peter Steele

Lighting the sage, I begin to think
Hopes and dreams begin to sink
I throw my hands into the sky
And ask my lord and savior - why?

If I worship am I safe?
If I cleanse am I protected?
When I drop down on my knees and pray
Are you really here to stay?

You say your hand is upon my heart
But all I feel is it ripping apart
Why must it be me?
For I've done you no wrong.
Is it merely blamed upon the fact
I am unfamiliar with the pew
And sing no worship song?

The only thing I'm sure of
The one thing I have left
Is the love I offer you tenfold
To you and only you

I'm not very religious, but this helped me through a hard time.
