NEEDTOBREATHE – The Reckoning lyrics

Goin' to California,
Suitcase in my hand
Never run away a boy
When you can walk away a man
Pride, it comes to find you
In your hopes and in your dreams
Like a thief who tells his lover
He's got one last thing

Cause I can see the shadows
At the foot of my door
I can see the faces
They don't doubt us anymore
I can see it coming
I pray I don't go blind
In the middle of our reckoning time

Easy is a refuge
And it's an easy place to be
But when the sun shines on me,
What will the whole world think?

Cause I can see the shadows
At the foot of my door
I can see the faces
They don't doubt us anymore
I can see it coming
I pray I don't go blind
In the middle of our reckoning time

The nature of the broken
Spirit of the chosen
We stand alone
A journey through the purpose
The weight of when it's worthless
The words don't show
In the middle of our reckoning time

Goin' to California,
Suitcase in my hand
Never run away a boy
When you can walk away a man.

    Going to CA where everybody wants to go (heaven) - what's in the suitcase? ... but don't run from the light like a boy; rather walk in it like a man. But pride gets in our way and steals our light like a thief in the night. In the reckoning the lights do come on and it's no more in the shadows. When you've been in the shadows for too long the bright light may blind you. Hey it's not wise to run in the dark!
