Thumbs out on a desert road I am told
Leads to nowhere
Any shade is as good as the next
If your shadow doesn't go there
Week seven: Did you really asume
I'd find some solace from the letter in your room?
Next life, could you kindly refain
From throwing yourself at the mercy of a train?

Silence all, nobody breathe
How in the world could you just leave?
You promised you would
Silence that evil with good

Hear me out, I have the flooe
I'll give you my tears, I'll listen more
You promised you would
Overcome evil with good

Maybe this world is a barren place for a soul
Prone to get lost
But heaven still hounds from the smallest sounds
To the cries of the storm-tosed
Week nine: I am writing in the sand
Any little clue that could help me understand
Every whispered secret, every muffled sigh
Every half-truth that was added to a lie

Silence all, nobody move
I've got to know now what you hoped to prove
You promised you would
Silence that evil with good

Shame feeds guilt, guilt needs release
You took it to God
You made your peace
And swore that you would
Overcome evil with good

Every old demon playing back the crime
If they needed blood, I'd have gladly given mine
A Child of the Kingdom; still an invalid
Forgive her, please Father
She don't know what she did

Silence all, now go to sleep
The water's free, the well is deep
How can we return
That which we never could earn?

God, I long to see her face
We haven't a hope
Beyond Your grace
I know that You will
Overcome evil
For good

    Satan wants us dead, he will lie to us and help us believe the lies that our problems as too big, too great for jesus. Nothing is too big for god and he will overcome the evil in our lives so long as we love him. Gods promises are true. He says he works all things for good for those who love him. This song shows us a girl who believed lies from hell.
