For You

what makes a nightmare for you?
says the man who’s been stunted
’cause his whole life he’s been hunted
what makes a nightmare for you?

when cold comfort is all you can find
all the time you must be wary
and the heavy weight you carry
means the devil’s stalking you not far behind
and you may become entangled and entwined

what has your conscience done for you?
when you care for all your brothers
but they give their love to others
what has your conscience done for you?

when those who seek your confidence are few
and the troubled souls who’ve found you
with their sorry hearts surround you
and the burdens that they carry are so true
your conscience is what marries them to you

what is a man like you to do?
when you’ve been through so much sorrow
and you’re swallowing tomorrow
what is a man like you to do?

your spiritual strife will be undone
and your suffering be ended
and your weary heart be mended
when you call upon the mercy of the one

who knows your soul and cries his tears for you
who knows your soul and cries his tears for you
