lyrics

Forgive us
The reach of our arms
The size of our hands
We Lament

Forgive us
The length of our stride
The weight of our feet
We Lament

Forgive us
The greed in our eyes
The depth of our gaze
We Lament

Forgive us
The words of our mouths
The shortness of breath
We Lament

Forgive us
The pace of our lives
The hands on our clocks
The reach of our arms
The size of our hands

Forgive us
As we
Forgive
Those
Who
Trespass
Against us
