Best intentions, bear us go
Lead us up from down below
Where hollow lies hide hollow lives
In Heavenly woes and spiritual demise,
Pave roads out as we pave them in
We’ll meet in the middle, to sin again.
For should I lie when I should break,
I pray forbearance my tongue to take
For the sovereign thumb we’re living under
Could only be moved by broken bone–
So up we go, with the best intentions
Climbing up, we bay, “We’ll end this!”
But in the end, we’ll fail like the rest
Living our lives in ignorant bliss
As hard tongues betray selfish hearts
And the Prince presses us to our place.
