I was away for a while, 
but i'm hoping someday you'll forgive me. 
I dont deserve it, 
I'll cherish it well if you give me one of your new starts,
just one more last chance, I swear that I'll earn it if you front me for now
I'm good for it I swear 
I'm better now I swear. 

In earlier days, they'd persecute people 
they'd carry them off and hobble their legs, for lesser offenses than how I have
harmed you, yet still you allow me to walk free of pain. 
Though I punish myself I will never settle the debts I've incurred for scorning
the face of absolute beauty and measureless grace and though I once mocked you,

I'm dying to pay for it now. I'm dying to pay for it now. 

So hand me the rocks to help weigh me down and teather my legs with a chord
tightly bound to the end of an anchor, thrown into the sound and test me to see
if I, will rise, against... the worst that it can get. 

I wasn't well for a while, 
I savor the things that I knew were sure to destroy me, and that seemed to hold
me, that seemed to carry me where I couldn't go on the strength of my own, but I
should have known, that that gets me nowhere, I've learned that now I swear. 

In earlier days, they'd persecute people 
they'd carry them off and hobble their legs, for lesser offenses than how I have
harmed you, yet still you allow me to walk free of pain. 
Though I punish myself I will never settle the debts I've incurred for scorning
the face of absolute beauty and measureless grace and though I once mocked you,
I'm dying to pay for it now. I'm dying to pay for it now. 

So hand me the rocks to help weigh me down and teather my legs with a chord
tightly bound to the end of an anchor, thrown into the sound and test me to see
if I, will rise, against... the worst that it can get. 

Well I wasnt sure that I could, well I wasnt sure that I could, well I wasn't
sure that I could... But I can.
