Christopher?s Sister

She runs away & the devil quickly gives chase
She tortures herself; lacerations all over her soul
I?m scared I can?t find you, but I bet I?ll be petrified when I do

Christopher?s Sister is deflowered
and I can?t take the pain
I can?t help but call your name

How do you love your Father & love the world at the same time?
Like an explosion of flavor, this exhilaration is counterfeit bliss
Aroused by her caress, the fleeting embraces generate faults in my system

Christopher?s Sister is defiled
And my tears fall like rain
My God, was it all in vain?
Maybe she couldn?t control the craving
Failing to refrain
Tarnished souls in the devil?s domain

I cannot remain here living this lie
I cannot maintain no matter how hard I try
I just wanna know; did salvation pass me by?

I ran away, & the devil quickly gave chase
I tortured myself, lacerations all over my soul
I?m scared she won?t find You, but I?ll bet she?ll be glorified when You do

Christopher?s Sister is dishonored
but she can?t ascertain
only God can cleanse the stain
We all long to be whole again
And free from this disease
I?m deep in prayer down on my knees

Can?t you hear me? Can?t you hear me call your name?
Where are you? Please, please talk to me? Talk to me right now!
No ego, no self, no noise,
no words, no blackness. no nothing? nothing at all?
nothing can separate me from You?
