What is certain I have ignored
I have spent most of my life
Trying to complicate everything that I believe

So that what paralyzed
In thought I will always have an alibi
Just another excuse, just another excuse
To hesitate, to hesitate
Delaying true progress with passivity

[2x]
The answers that I've found
Are all the same
They uncover questions
That still remain

What is certain I have ignored
And what I know is simple
If I'm honest with myself
My soul is broken yet easily fixed
And what I know is simple
I must die if I truly want to live

[2x]
The answers that I've found
Are all the same
They uncover questions
That still that remain

The greatness of us have become the least
I must be reborn to revive the heart that hardly beats
Keeping alive this hollow frame
I must be reborn
I must be reborn

    Hes saying that we need to let god into our lives and be reborn in the holy spirit. We complicate things and all you need to do is shut out your mind and listen to god. You dont need to look for answers that god already knows and has written in the bible. The answers are there in big bold writing yet still you question it. Just let god work in your lifes.
    Go god!!!

    It speaks from the deep down bottom of my heart and my soul. It's an understanding for me of myself, i never heard so clear before.
