Subject: theres nothing more than this...
I am the only one to blame for this; somehow it all ends up the same. Soaring on the wings of selfish pride, I flew too high and like Icarus I collide. With a world I try so hard to leave behind, to rid myself of all but love, to give and die. To turn away and not become another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves; More deeply than the oceans, more abundant than the tears of a world embracing every heartache. Can I be the one to sacrifice? Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow. Take my world apart. I am on my knees. Take my world apart. Iím broken on my knees.
All said and done I stand alone amongst remains of a life I should not own. It takes all I am to believe in the mercy that covers me. Did you really have to die for me? All I am for all you are because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart. And I pray.
I look beyond the empty cross forgetting what my life has cost. I wipe away the crimson stains and dull the nails that still remain. More and more I need you now, I owe you more each passing hour. The battles between grace and pride
I gave up not so long ago. So steal my heart and take the pain and wash my feet and cleanse my pride. Take the selfish, take the weak and all the things I cannot hide.
Take my beauty, take my tears and my sinful soiled heart and make it pure. Take my world, it all is yours take it now, take it now. To serve the ones that I despise, speak the words I can't deny. Take my world apart. And watch the world I used to know fall to dust and blow away. I am on my knees. I look beyond the empty cross forgetting what my life has cost. Take my world apart. So wipe away the crimson stains and all the nails that still remain. Iím broken on my knees.
Steal my heart and take the pain. Take the selfish, take the weak and all the things I cannot hide. Take the beauty, take my tears, and take my world apart. I am on my knees. Take my world apart. And I do pray, and I pray, and I pray. Take my world apart. I am on my knees. Iím worlds apart.
