I'm walking slowly towards the things that I gave up
My battle scars, my hardened heart mean nothing to what I've become
All that I have done is calling out to me
Daring me to jump on off the rock and plunge into the sea
The same old rooms, the same old lies, I'm here again
Another time watching everything I wanted slip away
I gave my life to all of this, I'll die for it while yet I live
I can't escape the pull it has on me
Break my legs so I don't run
And crush my lungs till you're enough
Take all inside of me
And make me what I'm meant to be
Tear my heart that I might bleed
Pour me out of everything
Hold me close and heal my life
'Cause it was never my design
There's only one more step between me and my fate
You'll never win, you never have shout the voices in my head
You are too far gone to ever call for help
He'll turn away at just the sound of you trying to cry out
The same old rooms, the same old lies, I'm here again
Another time watching everything I wanted slip away
I gave my life to all of this, I'll die for it while yet I live
I can't escape the pull it has on me
Break my legs so I don't run
And crush my lungs till you're enough
Take all inside of me
And make me what I'm meant to be
Tear my heart that I might bleed
Pour me out of everything
Hold me close and heal my life
'Cause it was never my design
I know I said the things I did
That I would love and worship you
My soul is won but I still run
From all you want in how I live
My deeds and words are quite absurd
When placed into the light you are
I feel as though a darkness flows
That I can't cease inside of me
And maybe the only way for me to be free is if I'm
Broken and holding on to who you are and what
You did for my life, Lord, I can't escape what I've become
So just take me and shape me into a shattered tapestry
Break my legs so I don't run
And crush my lungs till you're enough
Take all inside of me
And make me what I'm meant to be
Tear my heart that I might bleed
Pour me out of everything
Hold me close and heal my life
'Cause it was never my design
Break my legs so I don't run
And crush my lungs till you're enough
Take all inside of me
And make me what I'm meant to be
Tear my heart that I might bleed
Pour me out of everything
Hold me close and heal my life
'Cause it was never my design
