The Saints Cry Out From The Kingdom Of Lies

we who are held captive in this
the Kingdom of Lies
require your help

oh God

out of the mire of stars
have we been made

and unmade still

your own and forfeit to
the Kingdom of Lies

in every game of chance

we undertake
for your sweet sake

arise again arise arise

over the Kingdom of Lies
and make us ladders

out of your starry light

and free us here
from everlasting night

look down on this our plight

while we are plighted yours
and grant us sight

for the long road beckoning

the pure.
