I am made of parts that freeze and ligaments that atrophy
Though they look they'll never see
They don't know somethings wrong with me
Just as well, i'll never tell what's underneath my scales
I've worn too thin to honor you, my every effort fails

Bury me with israel and cover up my tracks
Leave not a trace of what i was, i'm never coming back
And if you're mercy falls upon he whose blood is cold
Unearth me with your hands of love and never break your hold

The world is full of ones like me
Who need to see the truth
But the truth is never truth indeed
The truth is only you

Jesus bless the crocodiles, forgive the cobras and all the snakes
Open up your arms to carry all of our mistakes
Suck the venom from every bite, vomit every drop
Some of us may bite your hand but some of us will not

And every knee will bow before you, each forked tongue confess
My selfishness will rot in me and i will seek your rest
Still some lizards flee from you, ashamed of all they've been
So jesus take myself from me, never bring it back again

The world is full of ones like me
Who need to see the truth
But the truth is never truth indeed
The truth is only you

The world will soon become extinct
The age will pass away
And all will know that you are god
Hallowed be your name

Jesus bless the crocodiles, forgive the cobras and all the snakes
Open up your arms to carry all of our mistakes
Forgive the basilisk, forgive the moccasins and adders too
Have mercy on each alligator that never lived for you

I myself hatched from an egg, no white light from above
Just another ancient serpent that never earned your love
But still you find me underneath the rocks and in the ground
I cowered there just short of air and never made a sound

It's true that i'm in love with you and even in my shame
You wipe away the imperfections and take away the pain
You wrap your loving arms around this wretched thing called me
Your love is all i'll ever need, your love has set me free

The truth is only you
The truth is only you
The truth is only you

I walk the world on insect legs
Beneath an unforgiving sun
Eat the dirt throughout my days
On the dirt and dirt i come undone

Messiah born in bethlehem
Won't find me lying there
The world's too big for him
To see me or hear the things i've said

Hold me to you as i pray
Take the rest of the world away
My blood runs warm because of you
The scales fall out of my eyes

I laughed in the keep of a man with a rose
My mandibles are caked in trash
Thought you wouldn't recognize me
In the black of soot and ash

Don't turn a deaf ear to my voice
'cos one thing i want you to know
I have always loved you
Though my life has never said so

Hold me to you as i pray
Take the rest of the world away
My blood runs warm because of you
The scales fall out of my eyes

Hold me to you as i pray
Take every other thing away
My heart is breaking out for you
The scales are out of my eyes

I love you lord and i lift my voice
To worship you, oh, my soul rejoice
Take joy my king in what you hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear
