Get yourself prepared for surrender
Or accept the love that I render.
Mark your words on stones
Let truth seep into your bones.
Train your temper to calmness
Or you will land in restlessness.
Ask my blood to drop
Else there’s never a hope.
Let it be enshrined on my grave
“A soul too brave!”
Let my sacrifice save us from doom
Make me space in your heart’s room.
Ask your body’s landlord,
“Are you the better God?”
Let yourself believe in me
On the other side of life, we’ll be free.
