There are no good men

Only sinners who found mercy

Like convicts on death row who’ve found a surrogate at the last hour

Debtors with cancelled debts.

There are no redeeming acts

No self-attained righteousness for even

The noblest among us,

No track record worth keeping.

There are no good men.

Our revolutionaries became oppressors

We repeat the errors of our forefathers

And cry over small injustices

Yet we have been forgiven the gravest injustice of all!

There are no good men

For if there were,

He would not have had

To open his own veins,

Just to bring us

To Himself
