My soul is bleeding, bleeding righteousness.
I’m becoming everything and everyone around me.
It’s all touched by death’s hand.
Twisted and mutilated. It reflects the heart and motives.
I’m Bowing down, bow down, to false idols and giving my life away to nothing.
This is the noose around my neck, just waiting for the ground to cave in so my feet anchor my way down to oblivion.
Take me out of my trials.
Or charge me as guilty. Sentence me!
The trials are choking what’s left of my faith.
Give me grace, let me live and love.
Take away my noose! My noose!
I’m choking, my neck is breaking.
My spirit is vanishing away, you can see it in my eyes. My sights aren’t above.
Everything is so dull, and there is no life in the living. I’m just waiting. I'm choking, my neck is breaking.
GOD, THIS IS MY PLEA.
You are enough, God, glory goes to you no matter what.
