Verse 1
Forgiveness, to us, is an endless granted drug
So we take advantage, doing all the damage, knowing that we can unplug
But this self-abusing cycle is the founder of our wretchedness
The way we make each one a mess is the cause of all our hopelessness

Pre-Chorus
Why do we kill and go our own way?
Why do we lead each other astray?
We require an aid, we ought to forgive
'Cause when we live to hurt, it hurts to live

Chorus
As iron sharpens iron
I'll build you up
As iron sharpens iron
I'll show you love

Verse 2
And now the world's become a destructive human race
We find each insufficiency, shine the spotlight of disgrace
And we talk behind the backs of the ones that we trust most
We have the power to lift up, yet instead degrade and boast

Pre-Chorus
Why do we kill and go our own way?
Why do we lead each other astray?
We require an aid, we ought to forgive
'Cause when we live to hurt, it hurts to live

Chorus
As iron sharpens iron
I'll build you up
As iron sharpens iron
I'll show you love

Piano Solo

Chorus
As iron sharpens iron
I'll build you up
As iron sharpens iron
I'll show you love
As iron sharpens iron
I'll challenge you
As iron sharpens iron
To sharpen you
