the stretch of sin

God help me
for I know how far sin can stretch
And the snap
it was heard
by me
alone

Just one more time
to pay
the coins rattle around the tin
And such
I will walk away
alone
angels did not think of me today

I will give you fairy tales
songs if you prefer
the sinner is the lonesome wolf
no pack
to follow
lost
in the forget me woods

Daily we are given
our bread
thankfulness our prayer
I know how far sin will break
the heart
that cannot breathe
for no love
is in the air
