lyrics

Chosen rival, fated to be heaven's hand is choking the Burdened, fated to be heaven's hand.

I watch the sun's birth bestow its pardon; night pulls its daughter down. A simple thing, to thirst for an answer. Hope dies in silence now.

Why have you chosen? Am I your heretic? You might have saved yourself.

Chosen rival, fated to be heaven's hand is choking the Burdened, fated to be heaven's hand.

I fix my eyes on the horizon; the burden fills me. I prayed for not a thing, feared what I became – yet burned your ribbons. I clear the smoke, look to the boughs; the burden fills me. I lured the pain, found my soul - yet burned your ribbons.

You have baptized me – placed your hand onto my head, pushed me underneath the waters. I breathe, drowning in all of your fears. I want none of you! Still, this burden takes me. …I want none of you. Still, this burden makes me.

You left me choiceless, left me alone. To be heaven's hand – a saint – condemned in me.

Chosen rival, fated to be heaven's hand is choking the Burdened, fated to be heaven's hand.
