The Absolution - Sacrifice

Sacrifice

No greater gift than to give oneself. An offering or entreaty to greater good through unity. The line,“A woman´s chastity is a sty in the devil´s eye” is a made up Irish Proverb by Ingmar Bergman from his 1960 film.

 

For the Wicked - The Absolution

 

 

 

 

 

SACRIFICE

Rip the fabric of everyday cloth,
Bear the weight of my stolen cross.


It’s my sacrifice, that I give to you
It’s my offering, I give myself to you


Cross my heart, love nevers dies
Chastity’s a stye, in the devil’s eye


It’s my sacrifice, that I give to you
It’s my offering, I give myself to you


Whisper, whisper, whisper softly,
Whisper softly a tender score,
Memories of the night before,


It’s my sacrifice, that I give to you
It’s my offering, I give myself to you


Taste the smell of your passion
Feel the silk of your skin
Stirs all the hard yearnings
Of the sins that have built within.


It’s my sacrifice, that I give to you
It’s my offering, I give myself to you


It’s my sacrifice, that I give to you
It’s my offering, I give myself to you
