now now now now now now now now now now

evil fell from your pretty mouth wrapped in your classic voice
Angelic in your syntax, demonic in your motive your pretty eyes don't know
That the water flowing from this well isn't fresh
Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
Confessing all that's broke out and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Turn all the way around
Be swept away by this.

Time for surrender
Spread out your open hands
And He will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken
And watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

Your clothes are smooth and spotless
The air is putrid sewage downwind of your pressed church clothes
Your eyes are black and empty
Your deeds are just for showing how big and bright your fake smile glows
I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do.

See them surrender
Spread out your open hands
And he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken
Look at the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do
Get this hell out out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say so
Get this hell out get this hell out out out of my way

We spread our open hands
And he is rising up
Repairing all that broken
Look at the healing come
We spread our open hands
Forgiveness holds them up
We're swept away by this.

Out out out out out out
Now now now now now now

    this is a really timely song.some people say they're christians but it's all for show,they really aren't.it's easy to say you're a christian but hard to live like one.many so-called live that way,trying to convince other that they are christians but they've yet let Christ into their hearts.the good thing is that God is so forgiving and He always gives us chance to find and accept Him.He will always forgive us for all the wrong we did as long as we ask for forgiveness.He gave us everything we have even if we didn't ask for it, but i think we should for forgiveness.

    repairing the broken, reminding us all we have somewhere safe to go to no matter our situation or past mistakes, where everyone is welcomed if only they will open their hearts, minds and souls.

    It's not even only about fake christians either. It' also about the devils of this world(media, propaganda, entertainment, sin in general and the liers that testify for it's innocence) fighting for our attention and trying to conform us into a false peace that's individual. Like the album is all about, it's the leader/leaders/followers of the dead army trying to deceive us and we don't even realize it.

    people usually say that their christian and wont do this and that but underneath their uptight appearance is a low down dirty person, everybody sins, but it's our job to get forgiveness, and forgiveness you have to earn, it's not like you take 50 bucks from a friend and don't pay them back and you recieve forgiveness from them right away, no, you have to earn their trust in you back, and i doubt if god would give you some brownie points for dressing up in a fake shell that's just as hollow as a turtles, but no, turtles are cute and have nothing to do with this paragraph, so i will end it before i bring antelopes in this.

    So many people do things just to get approval from those around them... Even I do that. I'll agree with whatever anyone says, even if it's not truly what I believe. I am quite a bit shy when it comes to showing that I'm a Christian. But nevertheless, I don't pretend.
