Forgiven

Relient K - Forgiven
From the album Five Score and Seven Years Ago


Oh yes, I know this tension that you speak of
We're in the palm of a hand making a fist
It'd be best for one of us to speak up
But we prefer to pretend it does not exist

And you can't see past the blood on my hands
To see that you've been aptly damned
To fail and fail again

Chorus:
Cause we're all guilty of the same things
We think the thoughts whether or not we see them through
And I know that I have been forgiven
And I just hope you can forgive me too

So don't you dare blame me for
Prying open the door
That's unleashed the bitterness
That's here in the midst of this
Sometimes we live for no one but ourselves

And what we've been striving for
Has turned into nothing more
Than bodies limp on the floor
Victims of falling short
We kiss goodbye the cheek of our true love

And you can't see past the blood on my hands
To see that you've been aptly damned to fail and fail again

Chorus:

And you can't see past the blood on my hands
To see that you've been aptly damned
To fail and fail again

Chorus:

I was never a really big reliant K fan, they never came out with anything that i really enjoyed. They have always come off as a regular, mediocre to me.

And I love their music.
Just goes to show that differences of opinion aren't bad. Just different.
What groups do you like?

I don't mind Reliant K, more of their early stuff, but they are boring to see at a concert.

I like The O.C. Supertones, Jeremy Camp, Skillet and Casting Crowns.

I am quite eclectic actually. I listen to bluegrass, country, jazz, classic rock, some pop, some new rock, ska, emo and oldies.

I am a fan of Del Mccoury, Queen, Michael Buble, Skillet, Trace Adkins, Randy Travis and many, many others.

I haven't found a lot of Christian music that I adore, while I do enjoy my country artist's gospel albums. Alan Jackson and Randy Travis both have great gospel albums.
