lyrics

I hear the smiles on their faces telling lies
Using words of fairy tales like righteous alibis
Each of them insists that I'm the one to blame
If only they could come to understand the fiction of their claims
Woe, Woe

If I've told you once, I know I'll tell you twice
Your accusations miss their mark, I reject what they imply
That my character is flawed, that I need grace
I have always been a righteous man, for each one of my days
Woe, Woe

I won't be afraid of suffering along the way
I won't fear what I don't know
Though there'll come a day when finally I will find the grave
I won't fear what I don't know

I made a promise once, I won't forget my words
A weaker man would hide complaints like scars beneath his shirt
But I'd rather speak and then be proven wrong
Than to live my life inside restraints and feign to carry on
Woe, Woe

And a blemish you won't find
I am clean in heart and mind
So strike me where I stand
Because I refuse
To speak a word that's not the truth

His latest work, Your Lies Will Dig Your Grave, is a musical trek through the book of Job, and should not be listened to lightly.
