Repent

lyrics

Blank manifestos
The rustling of leaves
The lives of the scarecrows
The wind in the trees
The unnoticed rapture
A simple refrain:
“How is your master, and what is his name?”
How can what’s lost be saved?
How can our debts be paid?

You fall asleep and you fall apart
You fall in love and it breaks your heart
To a sinner on Monday, it’s a long way to Sunday
We sleep with the dead

An ancient infraction
A common excuse
A joyful reception
A loving rebuke
How can what’s lost be saved?
How can our debts be paid?

You fall asleep and you fall apart
You fall in love and it breaks your heart
To a sinner on Monday, it’s a long way to Sunday
We sleep with the dead
