Track Name: My Lord
"My Lord"

I fall to my knees, I call to my one master
Show me the way to be
I loathe the one whose iron hand commands me but
I've chosen this slavery
My master's strong, I cannot run
Like desert nomads from the sun
He grants me the air I breathe
A part of me wants to be free
My legs though move to his decree
I'm back on my knees

A beacon placed
I quicken my pace
A ghost of hope
That's far away
I'm summoned forth
By my one lord
All other thoughts
Are profane words

A thousand scars, the lattice on my back displayed
My master's whip strikes at me
The tie has grown so strong I fear he holds my life
I cry out to be released
The pain has reached a new frontier
My madness is becoming clear
The time to escape is now
These shackles hold with too much weight
Whose toil bound me to this fate
The sweat of my own brow

A beacon placed
I quicken my pace
A ghost of hope
That's far away
I'm summoned forth
By my one lord
All other thoughts
Are profane words
Ten thousand faces
All the same
They stare at me
A maddening game
Stand back my lord
Stand back my lord
All else is nought
I must not follow the mighty, mighty scepter

Of my lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lord
My lo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ord
My lord
