Mary Magdalene

lyrics

Can you still recall as lucidly?
The expectations that you had of me
Presumed I lived a life of liberty
Within the confines of necessity

That I could have been so incredible
The wake of a dying star
But I have become so terrible
A testament to all you are
And who pushed it that far?
And you pushed me that far

So I have changed, I have changed
Into something very strange

I am Mary Magdalene
Whose life you see as sin
Hidden from view
The underground stream

And when you tried to justify the means
Scrambled to commandeer the legacy
Just like Tiberius you raised your head
To armies who’d slaughter the truth instead
But I could have been so incredible

The wake of a dying star
Now I have become the indelible
Stain on your heart like a scar
And who pushed it that far?
And you pushed me that far

But I have changed like a dream
Into St. John’s head severed by history

I am Mary Magdalene
Whose life you see as seen
Hidden from view
The underground stream
