CAN’T SAVE YOURSELF

Verse 1:

I’m not

Not so sure just what to say at all

This is real

You’ve tried

Tried so hard to fight and stand up tall

But it kills

Pre-chorus:

Skip the finesse, take a guess

I wasn’t good with it

You were a mess in distress

But it’s just what it is

I must confess I’m impressed

With how you handled it ‘til we met

Chorus:

You can’t save yourself in all your tragedy

It’s my responsibility

Lift your eyes and see the light

I dare to say you’ve never seen the day you cannot save yourself

Verse 2:

It’s time

Time you’ve seen the finer line of grace

Freedom’s face

You’ve lied

To cover up your holes and your mistakes

Cheated fate

Pre-chorus 2:

Cut the regress, catch your breath

Well, this may hurt a bit

You looked all set to the rest, it’s time to lose the wit

Time to forget all the mess that you’ve made out of it

To the death

Bridge:

Son, drop that weight off your shoulders

Let’s travel far from the past

I know that pain isn’t over

And your will is like glass

But you should know that I am here to stay

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away

And if I’m strong enough to bring the rain,

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away

LET MYSELF GO

Verse 1:

My city crumbles at my feet every time I try to speak

How could I let myself stand in the way of what’s to show in me

What can I do to get this through

Chorus:

I’ll let myself go, and I’ll never look behind cause nothing I do could ever be in the right

Oh, God, I need a little gravity just to give me some humility

Cause maybe all you want for me to do right now is tighten my lips so that you can take a bow

You’re changing everything I think I know

This is the moment that I’m letting go

Verse 2:

My castles fall like grains of sand, the ones I’ve built up with these hands

My selfishness and all its gold require me to let myself go

What can I do to get this through

Chorus:

I’ll let myself go, and I’ll never look behind cause nothing I do could ever be in the right

Oh, God, I need a little gravity just to give me some humility

Cause maybe all you want for me to do right now is tighten my lips so that you can take a bow

You’re changing everything I think I know

This is the moment that I’m letting go

Bridge:

The sun sets still, your light’s revealed, and all I see is your glory

It’s slipping through my hands

HAUNTING

Verse 1:

Haunting, this pain is haunting

Constant mourning, morning by morning

It’s burning my lungs, scent stays strong with my tongue

Who can endure this

The sun turns to dust, and the moon into blood

My sky is trembling

Chorus:

What is this sound that keeps ringing loud

The trumpets and thunder, they roar

What is this sound that keeps calling out

Come home, child

It’s time to come home, child

Verse 2:

Longing, this heart is longing for restoring from these cuts that keep pouring

It’s burning my lungs, scent stays strong with my tongue

Who can endure this

The sun turns to dust, and the moon into blood

My sky is trembling

Chorus:

What is this sound that keeps ringing loud

The trumpets and thunder, they roar

What is this sound that keeps calling out

Come home, child

It’s time to come home, child

Oh, come home, child

It’s time to come home, child

Chorus 2:

What is this sound that keeps ringing loud

Come home, child

What is this sound that keeps calling out

Come home, child

What is this sound that keeps ringing loud

Come home, child

What is this sound

Come home, child

Come home, child

TREMBLE THE GROUND

Verse:

We’ve become a force well known by the evil and the strong

By the grace of God we stand, rise up now you sons of man

Our patience wearing thin for the cowards of this land

For the love of God, resist

Meet the darkness with a fist

Chorus:

Oh, God, don’t disavow

The dormant are waking up now

Darkness shakes at the sound as our screams tremble the ground

Oh, God, don’t disavow

The dormant are waking up now

Darkness shakes at the sound as our screams tremble the ground

Verse:

We’ve become a force well known by the evil and the strong

By the grace of God we stand, rise up now you sons of man

Our patience wearing thin for the cowards of this land

For the love of God, resist

Meet the darkness with a fist

Chorus:

Oh, God, don’t disavow

The dormant are waking up now

Darkness shakes at the sound as our screams tremble the ground

Oh, God, don’t disavow

The dormant are waking up now

Darkness shakes at the sound as our screams tremble the ground

Bridge:

We’re longing for the day that wicked rots away

Our lungs grow weak, but still we speak to souls in disarray

We’ve come for our revenge on the root of our sickness

We’ve sat and watched while lives were lost to cowardly spirits

WON’T BACK DOWN

Verse 1:

The moment I walk through the door, they can tell that I am torn; they all know who I’ve been

They’re watching every move I make, guessing how long it will take until I finally give in

The pressure is surrounding me, I’m caught up in reality, it’s cutting off the lifeline to the Son

Darkness is all I can see, it’s making it harder to breathe

The battle has begun

Chorus:

Everything I am comes down to this

Another chance to fall, each time I slip

Each breath is suffocating, I’m hating this

The fire in my heart won’t let me quit

Oh, here we go now

The vicious have arrived, I’ve opened my eyes

I can see them so, get your guns now

I’ve taken my aim, this is for my name

I won’t back down

Verse 2:

I can see the tears and cries bleeding from my opened eyes, I can sense the waves are crashing in

I feel my body strengthening, there’s nothing they can throw at me,

I’m pulling from the depths of what lies within

One by one, they all fall, kissing the ground that I walk on

The tables have turned, now they will learn

As the battle rages on

Chorus:

Everything I am comes down to this

Another chance to fall, each time I slip

Each breath is suffocating, I’m hating this

The fire in my heart won’t let me quit

Oh, here we go now

The vicious have arrived, I’ve opened my eyes

I can see them so, get your guns now

I’ve taken my aim, this is for my name

I won’t back down, I won’t back down

Bridge:

So grab your shield and sword

The count starts now, we’re marching off to war

Bring on the wind, bring on the rain, bring on the fire, and bring on the pain
