Evergrey – When The Walls Go Down lyrics


Lord, if you don't help me I can't get though this
I can't

Lord, I'm too old for games
Foolish wisdom
And I'm tired of rhetoric
Meaningless rhetoric
It never changes things

Lord, just help me
Help me

I was feeling god's pain!
And I've never had anything
That's been any worse to god
In my 50 years
That wasn't born in agony!

Never, Never!
Dead, empty,
And I know that sermons won't do it!
I know that a new revelation won't do it!
Covenant won't do it.

I know now,
Oh my God do I know it,
Until I lie in Agony
Until I have been anguished over it
I'm preaching sermons,
Oh God.

I broke down!
And I wept!
And I mourned!
Does it matter to you at all?
I can't handle this
I can barely make it into this

Little by little you're losing it
The lamb/love of god
The lamb/love of Christ
People I know, that were my friends
And I've seen them go one by one
Some of my closest friends!

You changing
You know what you were
You're changing
Little by little something's happening to you
Would it bring you to your knees?

That's all the devil wants to go
Get the fight out of you
And kill it
So you won't labor in prayer anymore
You won't weep before god anymore

Go To Hell!
No weeping
Not a word of prayer
It's all ruined!
You're laughing
This isn't life and death

When the walls go down
And ruin sets in
Where's the tears?
Where's the mourning?
Where's the confessing?
Love of Christ,
Agony of god's heart

We have sinned.
