The Way of Memories (feat. Dillon Chase)
This was the hardest song for me to write 'cause When I try to respond to You-man I'd rather just sit, stay quiet I don't really know what to say Something simple perhaps, like "I love you" But I know in actuality So much time wasted running from you Blind to the after, it really does matter 'Cause I keep disobeying you, man, I'm hatin' you Been trapped in this darkness a tad long Dang, this is not meant to be another sad song 'Cause honestly I'm tired of that - my whole life Been wrapped around where the violence at, man where the silence at? Point is you still loved me when it was never clear That You were there, and I ain't have the will to shed a tear 'Cause my pain was too deep For me to keep on living Without purpose, there's more to this It's not just aimless drudgery So often, I just wanna end it all I don't remember true peace Your truth about life and death My God, it's what's saving me I'm walking up to the Atlantic Sand sandwich Between my toes standing At the end of an ocean vantage point Perspective granted, reprimanded As I open up a 16 oz bottle And try to get the contents Of the entire ocean swallowed Inside these 16 ounces That's a picture of obsolete thousands Songs and responses That try to conquer the knowledge Of God who adopts us I can't fit a tenth of a percent Of the depth in redemptive gifts you give So generous we live 'Cause you love And regenerate us with What you've done Your Spirit poured out like sweet perfume On heathen lewd People you free to use My God Every human act of love Is a dim reflection of the Master's love I can't get passed the flood Of your faithfulness that capsules us I'm separated from creation Embraced by the creator, amen Never jaded by the hatred Love-laced, my mistakes-savior The light, the dark - my apathy I'm so glad there's more to me Than just a lifeless ragdoll, enslaved in destiny 'Cause you become what you believe This is what you've taught me, that you love me That theology deems my mentality And there's a second half to the story How amazing, I'm becoming best friends with Beauty I can't wait to rule with you To chill with you To lean my weary head against you To embrace you To talk to you, face to face Streets of gold as I walk with you Ya kissin' my forehead; I belong to you Crying the tears of relief and gratitude Until that time, I fight for you I need to remember to Escape the memories and bear substitute I want to love you I choose to love you Folly is our second umbilical cord Our first breath out of the womb Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life Ashamed, we deny Reality is a lie Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life The universe reacts To rebellion, it incurs pain Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life And our reply is animosity and loathing Hatred for our condition, our brothers, ourselves Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life The hatred of existence hardens into banality Menial drudgery - desolation consumes us Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life In the snares of staleness, we crave rapture And we submit to addiction Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life A gateway drug to a more potent affliction Depression Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life Beauty's retaliation to our depravity is to reveal a glimpse of Himself A second time Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life I hope desire ensues That you're overcome with longing for true beauty Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life Simple yearning won't satisfy; so our correct response should be To commune with Beauty: with both it and those it occupies Yet you can escape at any time, there's one death and one life Beauty, Gratitude's what I have for you Yet I can escape at any time, there's one death and one life And the journey of Love is the second half of the story Rain has fallen all the day O come among the laden trees The leaves lie thick upon the way Of memories Staying a little by the way Of memories shall we depart Come, my beloved, where I may Speak to-speak to your heart
