The cut is deep, but never deep enough for me
It doesn't hurt enough to make me forget
One moment of relief is never long enough
To keep the voices in my head
From stealing my peace

Oh, control
It's time, time to let you go

Perfection has a price
But I cannot afford to live that life
It always ends the same; a fight I never win

Oh, control
It's time, time to let you go

I'm letting go of the illusion
I'm letting go of the confusion
I can't carry it another step
I close my eyes and take a breath
I'm letting go, letting go

There were scars before my scars
Love written on the hands that hung the stars
Hope living in the blood that was spilled for me

Oh, control
It's time, time to let you go...
Control
It's time, time to let you go

    Its about someone who suffers from cutting... And finding strength through what jesus did for us in dying on the cross "hope living in the blood that was spilled for me".

    I think it is about the addiction of cutting and how it steals your peace and how you have to give control to god in order to feel peace. And how before you cut jesus's blood was already shed for you so your's does not have to fall. It is about the demons that control and confuse and twist your thoughts into thinking you are not worth it. It is about letting that go and giving it to the one and only jesus christ.

    Can anyone tell me what the representation of the silver heart means in the vid? I know when she takes of the veil she reveals her silver heart.. So she's not afraid anymore of what she's hiding.. I get that bit.. Just not the heart on the chest... I need educating please :-)

    I am actually addicted to cutting... I went to a free concert at my church a year or two ago where she performed this song one of the first times... Control for me is a prison... It's something that i fight to keep in every aspect of my life... The sing is a major eye opener that i dont need to hold the control in my life, i can just let god take the control

    I actually heard her explain this song. She had a friend who would cut herself because everything was going wrong and she couldn't control it. So she decided that if pain was going to be a part of her life then she wants to be the one who could control it. But the song also talks about being redeemed by god's love and grace, and that you should take heart for he has overcome the world, god has control so that you don't have to
