Sunday church

my soul transcend

sins everywhere

the walls run thick with tears

heads bowed in silent prayer

seeking forgiveness given here

candle lit, penance paid, sins vanish

I chase my shadow across the Rubicon

The die is cast, whose favour will it fall

my soul hangs in balance of payment

I track the desert wilderness

I seek the one who can help

to return me from hell

call me from exile

the hunt over

my own guide

I live

for your

life, it’s time.

Just keep running

the black dog is slow.

His hunting days are over

he wants to follow you now.

Find a warm home, food, and comfort.

To sleep, dream by a warm, lazy fire.

You left food out, now he’s found his way home…
