You are the empire
The Promised Land beneath my feet
The contrast
That offends my firm theology
We tried to fit Your ways
In the boxes humans made
So either You're a heretic
Or You're the Son of God

You are the relapse
Of quiet streams and greener paths
The footnotes
Of ancient words our language lacks
We can scribble out the notes
In the books that Your friends wrote
'Cause either everyone's a heretic
Or they've heard the voice of God

Oh, offend my mind so that I can know You more
And break my heart so it looks more like Yours
Offend my mind so that I can know You more
Offend my mind, offend my mind

You are the contrast
Of tender word and a stomach leap
The constant
Offending Greek mythology
Capitalize the "g"
In the name of He who bleeds
You really resurrect me

Tell me directly
Am I just a modern Pharisee?
Do my thoughts [?]
[?] words I just speak
And if You walk into my home
And You make Your glory known
Will my tears soak Your feet
Or would I crucify You?

Oh, offend my mind so that I can know You more
And break my heart so it looks more like Yours
Offend my mind so that I can know You more
Offend my mind
Oh, offend my mind so that I can know You more
And break my heart so it looks more like Yours
Offend my mind so that I can know You more
Offend my mind

Ooh, Prophet and a Priest
Crucify my disbelief
The Diviner reminds me of the hope inside me
Ooh, Counter of the stars
Resurrect my broken heart
The contrast soothes my mind

You're the earth that I reside in
I break the rules, You break the silence
I see the power in Your eyes
You're glorious, I'm terrified
Grain of sand upon an island
Real estate inside Your eyelids
I'm a tooth inside the smile
I'm a soul You reconcile

Would You offend my mind, offend my mind, offend my mind, offend my mind?
Would You offend my mind, offend my mind oh?

Offend my mind so that I can know You more
And break my heart so it looks more like Yours
Offend my mind so that I can know You more
Offend my mind
Oh, offend my mind so that I can know You more
And break my heart so it looks more like Yours
Offend my mind so that I can know You more
Offend my mind, offend my mind
