lyrics

Idols

a strange man in my bed with my wife a fake dad kisses my daughters good night
a false hope a dead god on my throne I’m not a king not a father to you just a ghost

and they wonder why my jealous heart makes me blind
as strangers sleep with my bride I always reached for your hand
but you gave me the lid to your casket

idols! demons! on my hills at my gate
in my house in my bed a den of thieves
teraphim

speak to me my love tell me you’re not ignorant
am I likened to an image? am I clung to like a stone?
am I really just a choice to you? another trifle for your trophy room?
another book? another prayer? have you forgotten who I am?
I am who I am and I’m not like you

I am who I am and you wonder why my jealous heart makes me blind
as wolves devour my bride I always reached for your hand
but you gave me the lid to your casket

Ezekiel 8
