"I only want to say, if there is a way, take this cup away from me for I don't want to taste it's poison.
Feel it burn me, I have changed, I'm not as sure as when we started. Then I was inspired. Now I'm sad and tired.
Listen surely I've exceeded expectations; tried for three years, seems like thirty; could you ask as much from any other man?
But if I die, see the saga through and do the things you ask of me. Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me, nail me to their tree.
Why I should die? Would I be more noticed than I was ever before? Would the things I've said and done matter any more?
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain. Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain.
Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die. You're far too keen on where and how, and not too hot on why.
Then I was inspired, now I'm sad and tired. After all I've tried for three years, seems like ninety.
Why then am I scared to finish what I started? What you started...I didn't start it.
God, Thy will is hard, but You hold every card. I will drink Your cup of poison,
Nail me to Your cross and break me. Bleed me, beat me, kill me, take me now .
Before I change my mind
