Surrender, And

⠀⠀⠀⠀All your sins past and future, we forgive
⠀⠀⠀⠀as long as you repent.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Surrender, and we will let you live.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Lie, cheat, sleep around, kill, thieve,
⠀⠀⠀⠀any rule you circumvent —
⠀⠀⠀⠀All your sins past and future, we forgive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Faith takes courage. We’re not so naive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀We saw where you went.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Surrender, and we will let you live.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Each soul you practice to deceive,
⠀⠀⠀⠀scenes you misrepresent —
⠀⠀⠀⠀All your sins past and future, we forgive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Things can change. We’d like to believe
⠀⠀⠀⠀you of random intent.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Surrender, and we will let you live.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Think of us as your friends. We’ve
⠀⠀⠀⠀said so as if meant.
⠀⠀⠀⠀All your sins past and future, we forgive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Surrender, and we will let you live.⠀
