blackest hour

You come like a pistol prayer
A faithless friend in need on a double dare
Cut down from the cross you bear
But as you hit the ground nobody's left to care

Long is the blackest hour
But I'm so lonely I just can't walk away
Long is the blackest hour
But I'm too far-gone to turn back now

Slapped down like a crying clown
A vestal virgin broken at the edge of town

And I'm screaming inside
Give it to me I can take it
