Go to the city of hatred and lies To those who will carry your children away Through you I will show mercy and love To those who will make your people slaves Sailing into the storm Sailing into the storm Sailing into the storm I am the prophet who runs from his God This tempest is my own Feed me to the blackest depths That you may live to reach your home Do not charge us with innocent blood Do not charge us with innocent blood Do not charge us with innocent blood Do not charge us with innocent blood Sailing into the storm Sailing into the storm Sailing into the storm The wind and the waves subside The prophet has surely died Oh my God, what have we done?

What is this that rises through the deep? Leviathan bearing down on me Even if I had the strength to flee I can't remove the guilt chained to my feet Sinking man I'm falling down into Sinking man The teeth of my anger Sinking man I'm tearing apart in Sinking man The teeth of my anger I have walked in light and seen the way of truth But I've been blind to deal the hatred that's... Hunting me now, armor of scales Stench of the dead, thrashing of tail Cavernous jaws swallow me whole Never again shall the light of day I behold Never again to rise Sinking man Never again to... Sinking man Never again to... Sinking man Never again to... Sinking man Never again to rise Cold and damp this bitter season Solitude beyond all reason No comfort my second womb This shall be my hidden tomb
3.
You hurled me into the deep Into the heart of the sea Somewhere between my life and death I call to you with my last breath With my last breath Please let me stand In the shadow of your hand I'll take your plan And give you all I am And in the silence of the deep I opened my eyes in the gloom And I began to understand This saving terror was from you It was from you

All rise Go and let the evil city hear my message All rise Full of bloody lies and now no one will mourn her Forty Days from now and Nineveh will be overthrown Forty Days before you wicked men will reap what you've sown Now Now is the time I'll sit and watch as the fire descends from the sky Burning your eyes Burning your streets Ending your lies No compassion Show no mercy Let the men of Nineveh lie down in ashes Hear me Clothe all of your children in the rags of mourning Too late Is it too late to turn and wash the blood from our hands? Maybe God will show us mercy if we heed this warning
5.
I can't lie I'd rejoice at your fall Your cruelty is evident to all who know you How can I give God my trust When his grace to you is so unjust? I can't abide this love Again I find this to be true I love myself more than you It's easier to serve myself Than save the life of someone else Someone else like you How can you be among the chosen few When every day I thank my God That I'm not you I have the life And pure blood is in my veins So why does your deliverance cause me so much pain? So much pain How can it be that God should see His creature's endless pain Or hear his groans and rueful moans And still his wrath retain? My hate has poisoned me inside Why couldn't you just let me run? I'm angry enough that I could die So kill me now under the sun I can't be like you I can't love like you I hold these people in my hand A hundred thousand strong they stand Why should I not pity them The way that I have pitied you? Should I not love them, too The way that I love you?
6.
You hurled me into the deep Into the heart of the sea Somewhere between my life and death I call to you with my last breath With my last breath Please let me stand In the shadow of your hand I'll take your plan And give you all I am And in the silence of the deep I opened my eyes in the gloom And I began to understand This saving terror was from you It was from you
