Only through struggle have I found rest
With a piece of me taken away
I begin to understand
Hollow out this machine like chest
With it's gears that turn to make me feel assembled
As I fade away

Only through struggle have I found rest
Only through struggle have I found rest

Remove from me
This deception that I called love
That I called love

With it's gears that turn to make me feel assembled
As I fade
I fade away

Remove from me (Remove from me)
This deception (This deception)
That I called love (That I called love)
That I called love

Only through struggle have I found rest
With a piece of me taken away
I begin to understand
I begin to understand
I begin to understand

    I see nothing Godly or drawing anyone towards Christ in these lyrics?
    It sounds more like something that was a false hope or something that trust was put in has been stripped from him. Not willingly but it turned out for the better? Or he sees that it wasn't good for him in the long run.
    Again though I don't see how this draws one closer to God unless they are trying to make it in their own way. Which is what "religion" is. Man trying to find their own way.
    Christianity differs. There is no way for man to make his own way to God(religion,) God had to come down and make a way back to Him.(Christianity).

    We are born sinners, and when we are sinners, we are programed to operate according to our sin. When we have a "piece" taken away (an old sinful habit), we begin to understand that we are not made to be sinners. But we all struggle to release our sins, sin is fun. We enjoy sin. Through the struggle of following Jesus and abandoning our sin is what helps us find rest.
    "This deception I called love" basically means that we can love anything and give ourselves to anything. If it's not Jesus, we decieve ourselves and call it love.
