Flyleaf – Perfect lyrics

Sick of circling the same road
Sick of bearing the guilt
So open the windows to cool off
And heat pours in instead

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

All my efforts to clean me
Leave me putrid and filthy
And how can you look at me
When I can't stand myself

I'm tired to be honest
I'm nobody

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

Perfect in weakness
I'm only running in just your strength alone

I tried to kill you
You tried to save me

You save me
You save me
You save me
You save me

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

Perfect in weakness
I'm only running in just your strength alone

    I think people can take their own meanings from the lyrics, to me it speaks of abuse and trying to over come that abuse. When ever I listen to it all I can think of is a character from a book who was abused, molested and raped. And the scene where he's in the tub and scrubbing his skin raw, repeating over and over, "I'm dirty" "I'm poison," "Sick, sick, sick..." And it just makes me want to cry.

    No matter how much we try to be good we always seem to eventually fail - but those who are into God through Christ are seen as perfect from God's point of view - this is one of the mysteries that we can be perfect in Christ and strong through Him even when we are weak. In fact when we are weak we end up depending on Christ and allow Him to be strong for us - He wants us to depend on Him because when we depend on ourselves. We always seem to eventually fail.
