Faithless

My devil says wallow
go, don’t go,
it doesn’t matter to him
but wallow

Here there is no scripture
in the land between light
down in the darkness
where even shadows have dreams

I saw the worst parts of myself
laid bare on that altar
and I swore to keep my faith
But I wonder
how can you keep something
that you’ve never had
or already lost?

Weep for me and follow
my example to the truth
I have nothing left but principles
and facts
and nothing with which to feed my soul
