Nine Lashes – Guilty Hands Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve watched you wander about
With nowhere to go but down
Or back to beginnings
I never wanted you out
To follow the broken path
Down to your ending

[Pre-Chorus]
Guilty hands have paved the way
To emptiness
So tell me

[Chorus]
Why do you run?
Why are you hiding?
The guilty will know where to find you
Lay down your guns
What are you fighting?
Is my name not forgiveness?

[Verse 2]
I see you withering now
A stubborn little broken man
So lost and alone
I wish that I could amend
The heart of my fading friend
But you would rather have it your way

[Pre-Chorus]
Guilty hands have paved the way

To emptiness
So tell me

[Chorus]
Why do you run?
Why are you hiding?
The guilty will know where to find you
Lay down your guns
What are you fighting?
Is my name not forgiveness?

[Bridge]
Would you swallow your pride
And let me erase your stains
You run and you hide
But the darkness will have it’s way
I never wanted you to find your end
So

[Chorus]
Why do you run?
Why are you hiding?
The guilty will know where to find you
Lay down your guns
What are you fighting?
Is my name not forgiveness?

[Outro]
(What are you fighting?)
(What are you fighting?)
(What are you fighting?)
