I'm on my hands and knees again
Singing a symphony of sins
I'm crying, I'm crying again
And I am sorry for what I've done
Apologies from empty lungs
I'm lying, I'm lying again

You let me drown in holy water
You let me fall on holy ground
I spent my life at your altar
But all you did was hold me down

Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
Don't trust a word I say
And don't take my crown away
Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners

I'd say I'd see you in the end
But I can’t consider you a friend
I'm screaming, I'm screaming again
You buried me with no amen
So one day there would be revenge
I'm singing, I'm singing again

You let me drown in holy water
You let me fall on holy ground
I spent my life at your altar
But all you did was hold me down

Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
Don't trust a word I say
And don't take my crown away
Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners

I am more than the tears I've cried
I am more than the blood that's dried
I am more than my tiger stripes
I am more than the sharpest lives
And I know that this lightning strikes
Lightning strikes twice

Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
Don't trust a word I say
And don't take my crown away
Cause I'm the saint of the sinners
I'm the saint of the sinners
There's a secret on the tip of my tongue
And it's burning a hole between my lungs
There's no grace for what I have done
But I must face what I've become
Hiding six feet under has always been my way
And though the honesty hurts
The lying was worse
Can't take this to the grave

This is my confessional
Of things that I have buried low
This is my confessional
Please will you redeem my soul?

Holy water on the tip of my tongue
There's so much sin for just 21
Hear my penance and all I have done
This self-destructive war I've won
I've come out from under to die another day
And though the honesty hurts
The crying was worse
Now tell me I'll be saved

This is my confessional
Of things that I have buried low
This is my confessional
Please will you redeem my soul?

Throw stones if you want to (my confessional)
Break bones if you want to (my confessional)
That high horse have a good view? (my confessional)
I confess
My mother used to tell me stories
Of a world we couldn’t see
She told me to look deeper, darling
See what’s underneath

She taught me all about imagination
And what’s been going on inside my mind
She said never venture there without somebody
By your side cos child, you’ll never know what you’ll find

And keep looking down that rabbit hole
If it takes you to that world unknown

Cos darling, we are chandeliers
Hanging on a twilight sky
Coming out to play at night
Cos darling, we are chandeliers
Constellation burning bright
Only stardust in my eyes

My father used to tell me fables
Of a world that’s unrevealed
He told me to explore it more
And see what’s being concealed

And keeping looking through the looking glass
If it shows you to the greener grass

Cos darling, we are chandeliers
Hanging on a twilight sky
Coming out to play at night
Cos darling, we are chandeliers
Constellation burning bright
Only stardust in my eyes
Only stardust in my eyes
Only stardust in my eyes
