No Return
by Brian Doerksen

Album: Prodigal God


THE YOUNGER SON
I want to journey back
Before I turned away
From sweet todays of innocence and youth
I long to travel back
To life within these walls
Back to the simplicity of a father's love
And a brother's company

THE ELDER SON
There is no return
The past is blown away
I am too far gone
Your tears are much too late

THE YOUNGER SON & THE ELDER SON
There is no return
I'm spent and none remains
The vine is withered brown
The walls have given way

THE ELDER SON
Nothing could undo what you've done to me

THE YOUNGER SON
What I've done to you

THE YOUNGER SON & THE ELDER SON
Life is nothing more than a tally of debt
What if death is the only answer left?

(The Elder Son makes his way to his father's bedside, stick in hand. The Father is awake but lies motionless.)

THE ELDER SON I stagger on the edge
I stumble in the dark
I can't control my thoughts
I cannot change my heart
Still I remember what you taught me
Vengeance is not ours but God's
But who will pay the price for what's been taken from me
And what I could take from you?
God in heaven, stop me now

THE YOUNGER SON
Save us now

THE ELDER SON
Before I desecrate the earth

THE YOUNGER SON
What have I done?

THE ELDER SON
God in heaven, free me now
From this bitterness and hate

THE ELDER SON & THE YOUNGER SON
Change me now

THE ELDER SON
I will find my way back into your heart
I am better than this
Give me another chance to become more like you
