Bended Knees Lyrics

How could I let it happenwhy did I turn away
when my son began to change some
when he was led astray
was it fear of the almighty
or going against the grain
accusing those with hallowed heads
of causing my boy pain
tonight I'm down on bended knees
calling ghosts to help me please
down on bended knees
guilt like fallen leaves
What kind of mother looks up
at a boy playing at a man
and trembles at the prospect
of getting all she can
for surely she is chosen
and envy fills the eyes
of others without insiders
in their spiritual lives
tonight I'm down on bended knees
calling ghosts to help me please
down on bended knees

guilt like fallen leaves
Asking for answers that just won't come
told me he felt like the only one
tonight I'm down on bended knees
calling ghosts to help me please
down on bended knees
guilt like fallen leaves
Today I got the news
that my boy has passed on
skin too few for this world
where might is often wrong
he told me I chose my grave
and here I'll have to lie
and that there is no absolution
for a mother who can't cry
tonight I'm down on bended knees
calling ghosts to help me please
down on bended knees
guilt like fallen leaves
Asking for answers that won't come
told me he felt like the only one
tonight I'm down on bended knees
calling ghosts to help me please
down on bended knees
guilt like fallen leaves
