A deathbed promise - Drown with the world

Dear Shepard, I am the sheep who's gone astray
The others led me to the water
Where you anchored a heavy price to pay
For your wretched sons and daughters
And now I'm sinking
And now I'm sinking

(Don't let me drown with the world)
I'll accept anything you have to offer me
(If my salvation's unearned)
Leave me lying at the bottom of the sea


I am the wolf treading your tides
Speaking in tongues, leading your blind
Wasted away pulled by the waves
Misunderstood, trying to change

(Don't let me drown with the world)
I'll accept anything you have to offer me
(If my salvation's unearned)
Leave me lying at the bottom of the sea

I see you in the distance
Won't you take my hand
Reach down here and save me
