So close
Is the life that's defined me
As the advice we're given
We've ignored

And I find myself in a world
Of false competition
Created on my own

As we have redefined
Our own sense
Of purity

We have given in
To hoping
Rather than

It was never ours to begin with

And I guess you could say
I'm just a broken record
Playing this discorded melody

But once the finale ends
And the truth begins
Will I have glorified myself?

In this life
Trying to replace
A heavy heart
With heavier ambitions

Only to make ammends
For all the wrong reasons

Take me away

And I guess you could say
I'm just a broken record
Playing this discorded melody
But as the finale rang
and the truth began
I will have glorified myself

I've had my fair share of temptation
Of corruption
We are violence
We've created our own famine of morality
Letting the flesh lead us
As we sell the soul
To feed the body
We have betrayed you

I swear to You
I am doing
All I can
To breathe Your word

But now
I am asking You
To breathe for me
