Oh – Yes!

No! – To the one.
No! – To the two.
No! – To the evil
I found in you.

No! – To the lies.
No! – To your ways.
No! – To the hell of
Your coming days.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the day I shall see.
Yes – oh yes – to the soul I can be.

No! – To the lover.
No! – To the friend.
No! – To the someone
Who brings me my end.

No! – To the knife.
No! – To the pain.
No! – To the sorrow
That brings me my rain.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He holds.
Yes – oh yes – to the story I’m told.

No! – To the world.
No! – To the game.
No! – To your races.
Erase my name.

No! – To your fight.
No! – To your war.
No! – To the burdens
Of my heart before.

Yes – oh yes – yes to my God.
Yes – oh yes – to the love that He’s got.
Yes – oh yes – to the day I shall see.
Yes – oh yes – to the soul I can be.
