Marked for death. My name, etched in stone. Deliver me from this pain. Everyone and everything, a life lived in vain.
This is a lie. My life, the very thing that you despise. Everything you've worked for was just another mistake, another truth to hide. Deliver me. Deliver me from this death.

I am a marked man. Sentenced to a world of torment. Living in death. A life of fear, defeated, a mind of scorn.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, Land of disdain, with every breath I take, another step toward my fate.

Cast me into the fire. I am unworthy. I am unclean.

Purify me. Whether it be through flame or storm.
Burn me alive or let me drown.
I curse the day, the very day that I was born. Why did You accept the crown of thorns?
Why did You accept a death in place of someone so unworthy?

Remove this breath, my breath of life.
I leave my door open for the thief in the night.
Do not pass over my home.
Take me now so that I will no longer be alone.
I've been trapped in my mind since birth.
Make me one with the earth.

Death is my home.
Let me see Your face.
Remove me from this place.
From this darkness.
From the demons that I invited in so willingly.
The demons that claw at my skull.
Let me place my crowns at your feet.
Let me surrender everything.
I beg of you, release me. Release me.
