A Banquet For Traitors

Sleeper Oh

Again, I wake to you...
Stand up, these feet are so far from clean.
I'm undeserving of the strength in your arms used to save me.
But years passed when I saw Eve next to me, she's wrapped in low-cut, dripping sensuality.
I remember the host, but it's been so long since we spoke.
He said, &"My son, you can hold perfection in your arms if you wish.&" but I sit at a banquet for traitors
placed here between a thief and a liar.
&"Just run and hold perfection in your arms as I slip...&" but I'll make you the god of a liar cause I've been both a saint and a viper.
I'll make you the god of a liar.
I am a lie, just like these traitors that cry for forgiving replies but keep their grips held tight.
Though my eye's on Eve you're ready to bleed as if I'm royalty but I am no king. I am no king.
His life spilled like a tide so divine.
It was a blood soaked feast that never ceased as his veins dripped empty.
With such violent grace, the waves hit my face and in painful clarity I turned fearfully...
&"What makes you think you can deserve me?
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU CAN DESERVE ME?&"
My host fell to His knees as paling lips pushed His plea...
&"My son, you can hold perfection in your arms if you wish.&" but I sit at a banquet for traitors, placed here between a thief and a liar.
&"Just run and hold perfection in your arms as I slip...&" but I'll make you the god of a liar cause I've been both a saint and a viper.
By grace uneven, at the banquet portrayed, through death, this life is saved.
But I am no king! I am no...
&"Open your eyes, child, your sea is changing.&"
