Phil Shöenfelt: Darkest Hour

DARKEST HOUR
/Phil Shöenfelt/

In my darkest hour of need
I stop and wonder
Just what the hell I'm doing here
The thunder crashes down
From the angry heavens
I hear the demon clawing at my door

Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm guilty, but I'm innocent
Gone are the ritches that I stole
Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm stupid, but I'm innocent
For that whore I sacrifised my soul

I hear those church bells ring
But I shall not weaken
I will not take my eyes from you
Build a river in my sight
I'm out of season
My love, you know I'd kill for you
Oh, I'd kill for you

Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm false, but I'm innocent
Deep in this tangled web I spun
Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm blinded, but I'm innocent
Show me all this evil that I've done

And with these words
You seek to criticise
Blind to the values
That you compromise
And should I lie
And say that I sympathise
Than I'd shrink to less than nothing
In your eyes

The road goes on and on
Through the Vale of Sorrow
I swear I did not forsee your downfall
So take the chains from my eyes
Give me direction
You cannot choose but heed my call
Oh, heed my call

Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm evil, but I'm innocent
Should I not reap this blood I sow?
Oh Lord, I'm innocent
I'm weak, but I'm innocent
Don't leave me lying down here below
Don't leave me lying down here below
