Finding the Key Without Using It.

This was our "confessional" last night during our home-group's worship time:

Unforgiven - Metallica

Make of it what you will. There are many compelling images here.

What grabs me is:
The lyrical description of a deeply hurt individual trapped in his anger, knowing the key is forgiveness, but refusing (or being unable) to move beyond "I dub thee unforgiven."
The images of a person living their entire life in a darkened cell, scrapping the wall to escape when the key and the door have been there all along.
