lyrics

If I were a religious man, I'd get down on my knees
And pray with all the other folk that beg to make their peace
But I've seen countless pious men crushed by the hand of fate
Forgive me if I don't repent, I know I can't be saved

We like to think that we were made in the image of the Lord
Our foolish pride has struck us blind, we're fragile and we're flawed
We tell ourselves that in our hearts there burns eternal light
But in the eyes of desperate men I've seen the darkest night

You tell me that his loving hand guides us from high above
But everywhere that I have been, I've seen the wrath of God
Lord knows, I've led a sinful life, but maybe he's to blame
If I had made a world like this, I'd hang my head in shame

We like to think that we were made in the image of the Lord
Our foolish pride has struck us blind, we're fragile and we're flawed
We tell ourselves that in our hearts there burns eternal light
But in the eyes of desperate men I've seen the darkest night

I wish that I could find my faith and pray for peace at last
But nothing I can do now's gonna save me from my past
So I'll go with my head held high, not bow down at your feet
I'll tread the unknown path ahead, we'll see where it will lead

We like to think that we were made in the image of the Lord
Our foolish pride has struck us blind, we're fragile and we're flawed
We tell ourselves that in our hearts there burns eternal light
But in the eyes of desperate men I've seen the darkest night
