'Hope dangles on a string,
like slow spinning redemption'

- Dashboard Confessional, Vindicated

All that I have lost
Valuables untold
All that was given to me
Were naught but sins tenfold

My pride stronger than my wit
Scattered all about me
Like leaves lost in the wind
So gay and carefree

Sanctuary I have forsaken
My soul and spirit
Lost in the void
An endless dark pit

Salvation has abandoned me
Rescue has fled
Deliverance did not deliver
and Liberation has captivated me instead

What is left
But
Redemption
