From episode 42 of the See You On the Other Side Podcast

lyrics

When Constantine saw the cross,
burning in the sky,
Another bleeding heart thinks
they can fix our broken lives.
While you’re waiting for your vision,
In you're existential dread.
These bargain martyrs
Still just wind up dead.

It’s the messiah complex,
that happens before childhood’s end.
But just because you’re not alone,
doesn’t mean you have a friend.

So save yourself.
in a world full of victims,
Spending their whole life,
waiting for the knife
Save yourself,
we got to save ourselves,
Or we'll never survive.
No one gets out alive

They tell us we have sinned,
they tell us we are cursed,
and if you want to get to Heaven,
you’ve got to go through Hellfire first.
So you'd like be a saint
Well here's my advice
all that crushing guilt
is just empty sacrifice.

It’s the messiah complex,
that happens before childhood’s end.
But just because you’re not alone,
doesn’t mean you have a friend.

So save yourself.
in a world full of victims,
Spending their whole life,
waiting for the knife
Save yourself,
we got to save ourselves,
Or we'll never survive.
No one gets out alive
