"Atonement"

ATONEMENT Lyrics by Defeater
I've been slipping away
I've been losing the days
I've been letting my vices drink from me
No holy spirit, no resurrection
I've been hoping on death, faith forgotten in theft
Years of heartache and guilt haunting my sleep
No holy spirit, no salvation
Hopeless and abandoned
Hopeless and abandoned

I've been waiting, a lifetime to hear that voice
Speaking quiet and low, carries the weight of the world
I can hear him helpless between words
Been paying a lifelong sin's penance
Speaking quiet and low, lay down the weight of the world
Find some solace and comfort in the words;
"What brings you here my son
What brings you here my son"

Hopeless and abandoned
Hopeless and abandoned
I've been slipping away
I've been losing the days
I've been letting the needle bleed from me
No holy spirit, no resurrection
I've been hoping on death, faith forgotten in theft
Years of heartache and guilt haunting my sleep
No holy spirit, no salvation

Hopeless and abandoned
Hopeless and abandoned
