Saving grace

Postby rhymarhyma » Mon May 26, 2014 10:47 pm

Walkin' the green mile in the Mile High

"Martinez, death sentence...tell your people goodbye"

I see raging gray waters under the bright blue sky

as I stand before judgment, not ready to die...

Shaking and scared, unable to run

I cried out for mercy...someone...anyone...

as a book was presented labeled Volume 1

and in it was recorded every wrong I'd ever done

Wrongs against my family, wrongs against my friends

The dirt I did towards strangers, never making amends

The list goes on and on though Volume 1 never ends

and I was guilty of them my soul descends

"Michael Martinez, how do you plead"

"Insanity, Father, the world planted a seed"

"It drove me mad for the lust and for the evil and the greed"

"Yet I stand guilty against the laws that you decreed"

I was guilty towards the grace that I received

and guilty towards the love that I deceived

but Christ interceded...I was redeemed, I was retrieved

He said "You did as I asked, child; you loved me back because you believed"
