State of Mind
by 38th Parallel



I stand tall with an arrogant grin Filled with pride as I chase the dreams that are riding on the wind In ignorant determination watch me pursue But I'm not and they're not enough to satisfy the hunger pains of my soul They are like fading mirages, illusions that leave me sold to the truth That's the essence of me . . . I'm not enough Chorus So here I am Broken on my knees stretching out my weary hands Grasp them and lift me Help me to find a rest in your arms that can change my state of mind I stagger the earth with one defeated sigh I once was longing to live now I'm longing to die Having attained everything that I desired was not enough Not enough to quench the thirst for life, for hope for peace Captive to my pride now I beg for sweet release And then a voice breathes in whispers to my soul "I am enough, I am enough" Chorus Set my awkward steps straight in line Move me to walk this life with your hand in mine
