Feel the silence
There's a war beneath our skin
Let it begin
It's hard to fight
It's hard to lead resistance
It's our hearts we're up against

This world it keeps us, promising freedom
We thought we could belong
But we don't belong here
Don't let us wander to arms of another
Oh, Father, Yours forever
Let us be a hostage of peace

We need a rescue
Need a love we can't resist
Break our defenses
Take us captive
Take our thoughts and take control
We're losing control

This world it keeps us, promising freedom
We thought we could belong
But we don't belong here
Don't let us wander to arms of another
Oh, Father, Yours forever
Let us be a hostage of peace

If we're fighting, let it be for Your kingdom
If we're violent, let it be against ourselves
Come arrest us with Your affection
Give us freedom
Make our need our only declaration

Oh Father keep us, they promise freedom
We thought we could belong
But we don't belong here
Don't let us wander to arms of another
Oh, Father, Yours forever
Let us be a hostage of peace
