God, help me get away
Break the chains and set me free
From the other side of me
I am my own worst enemy

I caught a glimpse in my rearview mirror
Of an old familiar face
Blurry image coming in clearer
Of a past I can't erase
I could've sworn I put him in the ground
But looks like he's found his way out

God, help me get away
Break the chains and set me free
From the other side of me
I can't fight this fight alone
I'll never make it on my own
Lord Jesus, rescue me
From my own worst enemy

I'll take a step and it's right behind me
Always fighting for control
There's a war that's raging inside me
I feel the battle for my soul
It's like my shadow is dragging me around
And You are my only way out

God, help me get away
Break the chains and set me free
From the other side of me
I can't fight this fight alone
I'll never make it on my own
Lord Jesus, rescue me
From my own worst enemy

Lord, help me feed the life I'm trying to live
And starve the life I'm trying to leave
Help me believe the old is dead and gone
And I am a new creation

God, help me get away
Break the chains and set me free
From the other side of me
I can't fight this fight alone
I'll never make it on my own
Lord Jesus, rescue me
From my own worst enemy
From my own worst enemy
