The night is deafening
When the silence is listening
And I'm down on my knees
And I know that something is missing
Because the back of my mind is holding things I'm relying in,
But I choose to ignore it because I'm always denying them.

I'm a bit of a manic when it's not as I plan it,
'Cause I start losing my head
And then I get up in a panic
Remember, when we were kids
And always knew when to quit it
Are we denying a crisis, or are we scared of admitting it?

I don't want to know

I just wanna run to you,
And break off the chains, and throw them away
I just wanna be so much,
And shake off the dust that turned me to rust
Sooner than later, I'll need a saviour
I'll need a saviour...

It won't ever change if you want it to stay the same
I really hate it, but I know it's hard to chose if you're chained
And when it's all you can control, 'cause you've got nothing else to hold
You're getting tighter and tighter, it's getting harder to let it go

I don't want to know

I just wanna run to you,
And break off the chains,
And throw them away
I just wanna be so much,
And shake off the dust that turned me to rust
Sooner than later, I'll need a saviour
I'll need a saviour...

Stand me up and maybe I won't be so small,
Free my hands and feet and maybe I won't always fall
Save me

I just wanna run to you,
And break off the chains,
And throw them away
I just wanna be so much
And shake off the dust that turned me to rust
I just wanna run to you
And break off the chains,
And throw them away
I just wanna be so much
And shake off the dust that turned me to rust
Sooner than later, I'll need a saviour
I'll need a saviour...

    The meaning of saviour is to always have some one watching over you, some one who will be there if you fall

    My meaning to saviour is to god. I rely on looks and money alot, in the back of my mind. But i deny the thoughts because i know jesus wouldn't be happy. I try and plan but in the end god's plans win. The crisis is this world, and the society today preaching "live and let live", but god's kingdom is about love and it needs to be shared. People dismiss god, choosing not to believe, not knowing what they're missing out on. Running to god is turning to him with every problem in prayer, to find his peace. The chains have been placed on us by ourselves and the lies we've chosen to believe from society, have turned us to selfish beings. God will save us. You have to want him, and want the change he brings to accept it, and it's hard because alot of it goes against society, which we're chained to. You might get frustrated because at times it can be hard to feel god, and you'd rather live for yourself. To live for god is to lose yourself, give your life to him and choose to follow jesus. Realising you've been living for yourself after you've decided to give your life to christ just isin't the same, once you've had a taste of what else you can live for.. It's hard to be satisfied. Asking god to come into your life gives you confidence and strength to stand tall, and in following him you will be free. God saves>our lives. This is real.

    This is my fav song. I love it! :)
    I just wanna run to you,
    And break off the chains, and throw them away
    I just wanna be so much,
    And shake off the dust that turned me to rust
    Sooner than later, I'll need a saviour
    I'll need a saviour...

    I just wanna get back to sleep,
    And stop my mind, throw it aways,
    I just wanna go to sleep,
    And shake off the thoughts that made me rot,
    Sooner than later, i'll need a sleeping pill
    I'll need another one...
