Attack In Black - If All I Thought Were True lyrics

if priests are princes' hollowed shadowed souls
if devils are but angels cast to know
i live forever with a sharp regret
it might be a surprise to know i never wished for death

a hint of misery made its way along
to those who've never harmed or never wronged

if honesty changed the hearts of men
who could contend?
if all i thought were true

in this great divide that is my life
i fear to think of all i'd undo
if all i thought were true...

even my own eyes would never care to know
what deep inside ourselves our hearts behold
a sky in shards, our world's unraveled parts
impossible to piece as one in our unending dark
