If I Fail (Mono Inc.)

The sea is rough The spindrift cold The bridge is under fire The master left the sinking ship as waves were rising higher Unbaptized Unconverted Just a henchman on the verge of throwing high aims overboard to feed the surge But if I fail or if I fall I'll be aid and consolation If I range or if I crawl I will shelter you my love If I starve or if I sear I'll be faith and inspiration Raise my hope and ease the fear I'll be there to back you up The sand like glow The desert wide The sun truncated brains The well dried up and thoughts are like a caravan in chains Bedraggled and ahungered Just a traveler in search of confidence and devotion before it burns But if I fail or if I fall I'll be aid and consolation If I range or if I crawl I will shelter you my love If I starve or if I sear I'll be faith and inspiration Raise my hope and ease the fear I'll be there to back you up A lightning strike on killing fields The soil is soaked with blood A deafening burst The smell of death and faces blurred with mud Ingenuous Blameless A peace seeker in the jam But I'm stuck in here till judgment day on ruined land
