the thirty-ninth lash
39 lashes bleed life from my skin
whipped 39 times to atone for my guilt
publicly paying the wages of sin
one lash shy of death for the blood that I’ve spilt

purged of the unclean by means of a whipping
the sentence is served and I’m catching my breath
my flesh pays the penalty open and dripping
no fortieth lash no sweet release of death

the streets flow with crimson as i try to stand
i bleed in the street from the thirty-ninth lash
i grasp at the sky for the purpose of man
the years on my headstone inside of the dash

though justice was served i do not feel redeemed
this wasn’t my first crime it won’t be my last
not as broken inside as i outwardly seem
this time justice was swift will the next be as fast

YOUR LIFE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR DEATH HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR PLAN HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR PATH HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR CHOICE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR OOPS HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR SIN HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOU FACE YOUR CONSEQUENCES

YOUR LIFE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR DEATH HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR ANGST HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR RAGE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR HATE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR SPITE HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR SIN HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOU FACE YOUR CONSEQUENCES

YOUR LIFE HAS CONSEQUENCES    
YOUR DEATH HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR CRIME HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR DEED HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR ACT HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR GUILT HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOUR SIN HAS CONSEQUENCES
YOU FACE YOUR CONSEQUENCES
