Thought Pattern

I thought that you could stretch me about a thousand miles wide
I thought that you could test me through a myriad of trials
I thought that you could burn me in a multitude of fires
I thought that you could raze me and not I, I will survive
I thought that you could lure me with insatiable desire
I thought that you could dress me in astonishing attire
I thought that you could tempt me with uninhibited wiles
I thought that you could trust me through a million or so lies
I thought that you could five to one me, baby, one in five
I thought that you could help me to get out of here alive
I thought that you could seek me when I ran away to hide
I thought that you could throw me with the Christians to the lions
I thought that you could punch me in the face until I cried
I thought that you could walk on water, dancing with the tide
I thought that you could know me just by looking in my eyes
I thought that you could calm me down when anxious I arise
I thought that you could paint my name with stardust in the skies
I thought that you could reincarnate me a hundred lives
I thought that you could trap me with intelligent designs
I thought that you could cast a spell on me with ancient rhymes
I thought that you could lash me to the mast when sirens cry
I thought that you could maybe take me to the other side
I thought that you could rise again when others only die
I thought that you could save me, I thought at least, you’d try
