WRETCH LIKE ME

[INTRO]

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me…

 

[CHORUS]

The mosaic of my intentions

A mangled counterfeit of your complexion

My dissension demands wrath’s penalty

Could you ransom… a wretch like me?

(x2)

 

[VERSE 01]

The unfortunate are those who never courted

The pearlescent inamorata that I dance with

Her name is circumstances, second chances

Her name is privilege, safety, advantage

 

Yet for all this favor, what has my life wrought?

What has my inheritance of benevolence bought?

Why is my heart cold in the wake of infamy?

Why is my tounge bent on marketing deceit?

 

[BREAKDOWN]

Could you forgive a wretch like me?

Could you love a wretch like me?

 

[VERSE 02]

I weigh my worth on scales of comparison

Supressing my shame with my arrogance

I revel in delusions of grandeur

I flaunt my facade of moral stature

 

I alone am to blame for this perversion

I know, I am nobodies victim

All my life I’ve lived without want

I loathe that my heart stands corrupt!

 

[BREAKDOWN]

Could you forgive a wretch like me?

Could you love a wretch like me?

 

[OUTRO]

I wonder, if they were in my shoes, would they walk farther than me?

I wonder, if they were in my shoes, would they run faster than me?

I wonder, if they were in my shoes, would they end up a wretch like me?
