Siyeh, Mad Wolf

I used to know how to walk on water

I used to know how to walk on water
I used to be so unafraid.
I could save the weakest tyrant
And I could knight the proudest slave
I could give riches to beggars
And give love to the one who hates
I could tempt a whore so frozen
And I could torture the strength of fate

I used to know how to walk on water
The king of kings they knew me well
I could give sight to blind men
And make a mute man sing in hell
But now I watch with awe and wonder
Doubt has now befallen me
I ask The Lord to show me mercy
And to give me sympathy

Forgive me now my useless thunder
When I was such a dynamo
I am here and I am humble
For I know not which way to go

I used to know how to walk on water
I could give the dead hot life
I could murder the joy of Satan
And make his mistress be my wife
I will be the dream of cowards
And they will never resemble me
I could see them doubt me under
As I set each one free
Now I just sit and wonder what
illness has befallen me.
This sick of mine make me surrender to
this world of vacancy

Forgive me now my useless thunder
When I was such a dynamo
I am here and I am humble
For I know not which way to go

I used to know how to walk on water
Now I sink in the dirt
No kind of holy laughter
Seems to reach beyond the hurt
I used to know how to walk on water
I used to be at peace with love
All it’s strength and all it’s power
Would lift me up so high above
Burning star of holy wonder
Women would rush to be with me
But now I’m lost inside the thunder of pain
which holds insanity

Forgive me now my useless thunder
When I was such a dynamo
I am here and I am humble
For I know not which way to go

Forgive me now my useless thunder
When I was such a dynamo
I am here and I am humble
For I know not which way to go
