I was made of fire, he was made of clay
and I wish that hadn't changed us as much as it did
but that's okay.

He was born the righteous one, I could naught but stray
I had hell within my heart, his filled up along the way
but that's okay.

I was born in arrogance, he was born to pray.
I tried my hands at subservience, but my knees don't bend that way
and that's okay.

Fire will cleanse us all, melt your clay and mend your bones.
Give us what we want, what we were told we wanted when we were very young.
You're standing at the door between right and wrong.
And you'll whisper in my ear

that it's okay.

I never stood a chance and I ended up in chains.
He was led away by me, and then into the grave and that's okay.
