Oh Sleeper - A Banquet For Traitors lyrics


ad
So far from clean, I'm undeserving of the strength
The strength in your arms used to save me

But years passed when I saw Eve next to me
She's wrapped in low cut, dripping sensuality
I remember the host
But it's been so long since we spoke

My son, you can hold perfection
In your arms if you wish
But I sit at a banquet for traitors
Placed here between a thief and a liar

Just run and hold perfection
In your arms as I slip
But I'll make you the God of a liar
'Cause I've been both a saint and a viper
I'll make you the God of a liar

I am a lie, just like the traitors
That cry for forgiving replies
But keep their grips held tight
Though my eye's on Eve
You're ready to bleed as if I'm royalty

But I am no king, I am no king

His life spilled like a tide so divine
It was a blood soaked feast that never ceased
As his veins dripped empty
With such violent grace the waves hit my face
And in painful clarity I turned fearfully
What makes you think you can deserve me? [2x]
My host fell to his knees as paling lips pushed his plea

My son, you can hold perfection
In your arms if you wish
But I sit at a banquet for traitors
Placed here between a thief and a liar

Just run, you can hold perfection
In your arms as I slip
But I'll make you the God of a liar
'Cause I've been both a saint and a viper

By grace uneven at the banquet portrayed
Through death this life is saved

I am no king, I am no
Open your eyes, child, your sea is changing
