Redemption Tattoo

Just past the train tracks
Out at the east edge of town
Next to the boarded-up diner
A place where the lost may be found
Our old neon letters are blinking
Some of them slightly askew
But aren’t we all? Just know that you’re welcome
Here at Redemption Tattoo

We’ll help you find sin or salvation
Bear witness to all that you fear
And whether you seek delight or damnation
There’s hope for eternity here

Look on in wonder
At sacraments that we display
Carefully crafted stigmata
That stay with you all of your days
This is the service we offer
That whether it’s pleasure or pain
Once you’ve been here, you’re part of the parish
There’s never a need to explain

We’ll help you find sin or salvation
Bear witness to all that you fear
And whether you seek delight or damnation
There’s hope for eternity here

Your time will mark you
All that we do leaves a scar
No matter what your transgressions
We accept you the way that you are
The path you pursue is uncertain
You don’t need to walk it alone
The choices you make can lead to redemption
So here is your chance to atone

We’ll help you find sin or salvation
Bear witness to all that you fear
And whether you seek delight or damnation
There’s hope for eternity here
And whether you seek delight or damnation
There’s hope for eternity here
