lyrics

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?
