Father, I'm going through some heavy things
It seems like this world ain't getting any better
The more we try to get closer to You
The farther we run from Your throne

I've spent so many nights wonderin' when will it end
When will the day come when happiness begins
I'm running the race but it seems too hard to win
I'm sick of mourning my stomach is throwing up in the morning

I'm calling for help and watching it melt away
My heart's been put on display and put away
In many ways, many times I told myself it was ok
And anger was the price that was paid
While these faded dreams just screamed to bring them home

The burden was too heavy I kept running from the throne
I can't take it any longer
I can taste my spirit hunger
God please help me get home

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I'm not scared cause You're holding my breath
I only fear that I don't have enough time left
To tell the world that there's no time left, Lord please
Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I'm not scared cause You're holding my breath
I only fear that I don't have enough time left
To tell the world that there's no time left

I've come to terms that I'm burning both sides of the rope
And I'm hoping that self-control would kick in before I'm choking off
The sin that be destroying every fiber I got
I need the Lord in every way I'll never make it I'm not
Going back to the way I was before Christ in my life
I couldn't do it I would lose it there's no point to the fight
And I'm writing this song, for the people who don't belong
I pray away the pain you feel from all the things that went wrong
Inside a life that's filled with anger and disappointment
Cause daddy treated you weaker than all of the other kids
It's annoying and I feel for all of you who wanna give up
You feel stuck I feel the same way Lord help us stay up
You couldn't pay me to abandon the idea of true hope
That I could make it through this life into a place where there's no crying
I'm dying to find You with open arms when I go
Knowing You love me and You waiting to give rest to my soul

Lord I don't know what I'm struggling for
There's got to be more
Than this life I know
But still I'm here fighting to never give up
I find strength in Your love
And You will see me through

    i love this song... i had a vision of hell because i got really sick and i was in church, at a youth camp. my group leader told me to get some rest and at first when i closed my eyes, i heard screaming. as i got closer, i felt a rush of heat as i walked closer to a flickering light. then i i smelt a foul smell of rotting flesh. it was like rotten meat times a thousand. after that, i saw a spirit and it looked like a skeleton with rotting flesh hanging from her bones. she screamed "HELP ME!!!" i cried because i couldn't help her. this woke me up, with cold sweat and tears in my eyes. i looked to the right side of me and i saw my pen in my hand and i cried even more because i wrote in my sleep. i also drew a picture of a hand comming out of the fire of hell. then i recommited myself to Christ and my sickness went away. this happened while i listened to this song and my group practiced a routine for this song.

    this song shoots out a powerful message..
    about how the world is being formed these days..
    with people that cant find help..who are confused with sarow..
    this song aint just an ordinary song its way more than that..
    its a statment and it will definitly have people double thinking..

    Omg literally, this song is powerful and sends a powerful message of god's unconditional love and his ability and his willingness to protect us from the ills of this world... No matter what... He is there and he will see me through... Even when it doesn't seem like it! When i can't deal with life on lifes terms... I take it to the master.
