Burden of Sin

from by Khemmis



The burden of sin weighs on my heart
Abandoned and scarred, it ripped you apart
Your truth was left unknown

I kneel before the altar
and pray my soul to stay
Besieged and buttressed by my

Seething inside my body
The tortured role it played
Kept secrets of our father

You carried this burden alone
Your truth and pain, now my own

And when you shared with open arms
Your pain inflicted youth
I, by not knowing, by closing my eyes
Bear the weight of the lie and it kills me inside

I will carry your name
