Look what’s happened to me
It’s apparent the story has changed
In an instant my innocence has vanished
I’ve been expelled from paradise

There’s a fatal flaw in my nature
And now I’m a guilty man
I’m an enemy of the Creator
For I have blatantly disobeyed him

I have irritated God. And I have defamed His glory
I’ve tried to dethrone the Almighty King and take His place

I sin because I am corrupt
I’m lethargic because my heart is depraved
And it’s at the very core of who I am
Not based on decisions I’ve made

I have cheated on the one who had loved me
I sold my soul at the very first chance that I had
Now I carry God’s image no more

Everything He made beautiful
Now just causes me pain
But I have brought it all on myself
And there is nobody else to blame

This was all planned for God’s glory
He’s still controlling His story

Look at what 's become of me
I'm a cespool of humanity
I’ll need a Savior to resuscitate me
