Lyrics

Tonight we ate together

Bread and wine cooked rare

You looked so disappointed

When I took off down the stairs

We took the road together

But I just exited right

I'll see you in a little while

And again on the other side

Chorus

I stand above You, like a conquerer

You stood beside me like a friend
I kissed you goodbye at the gates of hell

But you've always called my bluff,
yeah you know my every tell

Tonight I'm taking matters

Into my guilty hands

I just sold the Prince of Peace out

For a little stretch of land

There's nothing like the yoke

Of the innocent when they die

It came upon me like a stone

When I saw the deed was mine

Now I'm swinging in the gallows

Of my own desire

My spirit is departing 

To God knows where

Is there a grace sufficient

To receive this broken soul?

You bled out for the whole wide world

How 'bout your very own?

End
I stood above you like a conquerer
You stand beside me like a friend

I kissed you goodbye at the gates of hell

But I always knew I'd bow to you in the end
