I want you to know that I see
All the reasons why you fail
I've seen all your motivations
Ones for good and ones for hell

When you close your eyes to see
The truth that's inside me
May you hold your breath to breathe
Your empty reality

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

I was pouring out of passion
To light the step you're on
You choose not to hear or waken
All that's left is you alone

When you close your eyes to see
The truth that's inside me
May you hold your breath to breathe
Your empty reality

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

You can't limit me
With all your gross mistakes

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

    "I want you to know that I see
    All the reasons why you fail
    I've seen all your motivations
    Ones for good and ones for hell"

    this means god sees all that we do...the good and the bad and he also sees what makes us do what we do.

    "If you had eyes to see
    Down inside your stomach
    Then you would understand
    What I mean
    Who I am
    Who I am"

    most people dont see that god is apart of us all and those who dont see are blind to what is inside.

    "May you hold your breath to breathe
    Your empty reality"

    some choose to hold their breath (wait) to be saved or to except god because they are so wrapped up in an empty reality that wont last.

    "I was pouring out of passion
    To light the step you're on
    You choose not to hear or waken
    All that's left is you alone"

    god is what has gotten you this far and if you choose not to except him into your life your choosing to be alone...
