Once again

I looked at the wicked deeds I've done

Driven by lust and greed

Once again

I recalled the immoral acts I've committed

Guided by sinful intentions

Repugnant, repulsive, I feel

but no matter how remorseful I am

how much regret I possess

I will repeat the whole process

------------------------------------------------------------

I seek for purity

but filth is all I am

I long to be righteous

but evil is my nature

I yearn to gain back

the innocence I've tossed aside

I thought I could have it back

but it eluded me

because it is wise enough to know that I'm dirty

----------------------------------------------------------------

Atonement

can never cleanse me

Repayment

can never make me whole

All that is audible

are whispers of condemnation

All that is in my heart

are nothing but guilt.
