Same old question
Without words
So familiar
Seldom heard
If I answer
I confess
I am only
Just a guess
And with my eyes
It's hard to see
With my ears
It's hard to believe that
If I ever lose my will to live
It was me that I could not forgive

There's no savior hanging on this cross
It isn't suffering we fear but loss
This is closer than I ever came
Just a burning moth without a flame

Isaac's knife can
Cut away
All the poisoned
Yesterdays
And the anger
Ease it down
Into the ocean
Let it drown
As far as east is
From the west
I let you go
I know it's best
And my answer to the years of strife
Is the way I choose to live my life

There's no savior hanging on this cross
It isn't suffering you fear but loss
When there's no one else around to blame
You're a burning moth without a flame

Maybe I should take your face tonight
Let you see yourself in a different light
If I were to take your place tonight
Wouldn't Jesus be surprised

There's no savior hanging on this cross
It isn't suffering we fear but loss
This is closer than I ever came
Just a burning moth without a flame

It's an offer that you can't refuse
It's a trophy that you'll want to lose
But you'll do anything
You're a burning moth without a flame
