about

“Redemption” was inspired by the War Doctor from the Doctor Who TV Series. The War Doctor committed genocide of the Timelords and Daleks in order to save the universe.


This song was written for those who have regrets. It’s about facing your problems to overcome your fear and pain to find redemption. It reminds us that sometimes we don’t have to do it alone. The Doctor’s companions knowingly and unknowingly help find redemption.

lyrics

I was so young. I made a mistake
That I have never shared
Much to regret, I tried to forget. I ran
That just laid it bare. It laid it all bare
To speak the words out loud made me
Shudder for the harm I done
Now I help the innocent
Still I feel the need to run


Because I burn. I burn
It won't cover the pain
But it's time I learn. It’s time I learn
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again


Are great men truly forged in fire
While others light the flame?
That's what I tell myself so that
I can avoid the blame, avoid the blame
Deep down inside, there's a scared little child
Smashing statues, filled with fright
Under cover, changing faces
To hide away in plain sight


But still I burn. I burn
It won't cover the pain
But it's time I learn. It's time I learn
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again


And still my monsters come from my past
They shatter my future bones
Scary to face them, but time will heal
Don't have to do it alone, no longer alone
Promise to keep, tho I may weep
For the pain I kept deep down
Face my fears for 1200 years
Hope will turn my life around


No longer burn. No longer burn
It may not cover the pain
But it's time I learn. It's time I learn
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again


But it's time I learn. It's time I learn
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again
Redemption can come again
Can come again
