A soul departs under human’s deceitful terms.
Body and spirit, both to the worms.
The lies that are told, condemning too well,
Are why my soul belongs to hell.
They told me, “It’s okay; it’s just one time,”
But my life ended at today’s clock chime.
They said, “Just try this. It’ll be fine,”
But we didn’t realize my eternity was on the line.
It’s not all their fault; I knew what the devil planned.
Robbing me of freedom, yet I played into his hand.
Though I knew giving in would sacrifice something,
I thought I could fix it after by repenting.
I didn’t know today was the last that I’d see.
I didn’t think anything could get the best of me.
“Consecrated”, “Sanctified”, “Set Apart”-
All terms I thought I had taken to heart.
They were so commonly expressed that I deserved a day away,
But I never could have guessed this was my price to pay.
I can’t feel the comfort that I’ve always known.
Sadly, I forsook that when I rejected the Throne.
It was supposed to be a day but now it’s forever,
All because I thought I was just too clever.
I realize how dangerous the game I played is;
I didn’t think I could ever not be His.
Now, I think of my friends, following my tracks.
I wish I could do something to cover their backs.
I’m living out their future, one of great despair,
But I don’t want them to join me in the devil’s lair.
They’re trading their souls carelessly to temptation,
But this place shouldn’t be the church’s destination.
