Smalltown Poets – Clean lyrics

Clothed in the common and profane
And the tendency for independence
Runs through every vein
Self aware, bare before You at the water side
Afraid to take the step into the tide
Oh, I feel so obscene
Knowing I am only

Clean because You promised me
I'm clean. Wash me. I am clean

Called apart never has meant loneliness
But it feels that way any day
I'd rather not confess so take away the part of me
That forgets the price of Grace
I have only one hope to erase every failure I have seen
And I am only


And ready for the world
Thank you, thank you, thank you
