Help help help
Out out out out out out out now now now now now

The evil fell from your pretty mouth
 Wrapped in your classic voice
 Angelic in your syntax, demonic in
Your motive your pretty eyes don't know
That the water flowing from this well isn't fresh  Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
 Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
 Spread out your open hands  Admit you've held them shut
Turn all the way around 
Be swept away by this.

Time for surrender  Spread out your open hands 
And He will raise you up
 Confessing all that's broken 
And watch the healing come
 Spread out your open hands  Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

Your clothes are smooth and spotless 
The air is putrid sewage downwind of
Your pressed church clothes 
Your eyes are black and empty 
Your deeds are just for showing how
Big and bright your fake smile glows
I see you moving and their getting scared  Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do.

See them surrender  Spread out your open hands 
And he will raise you up
 Confessing all that's broken 
Look at the healing come
 Spread out your open hands  Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

I see you moving and their getting scared  Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do
Get this hell out out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say so
Get this hell out get this hell
Out out out of my way
Get this hell out get this hell
Out out out of my way

We spread our open hands 
And he is rising up
 Repairing all that broken 
Look at the healing come
We spread our open hands  Forgiveness holds them up
We're swept away by this.

Out out out out out out
Now now now now now now

Out out out out out out
Now now now now now now
