Once again I said my goodbyes
To those who I love most
My heart feels that familiar pain
As I long for home
'Cause this road is hard
When I feel so far
How long will my prayers seem unanswered?
Is there still faith in me to reach the end?
I'm feeling doubt I'm losing faith
But giving up would cost me everything
They're telling me they're concerned for the way I am living
That I'll miss it all why would I think that God is that trusting
Oh the things I've been sacrificed
So that I could bring You to this world
I want them to see You in me
But Your name just keeps them far from me
So I'll keep quiet
Tell me who'd have thought that we would be so controversial
And stand against the normal
Are we too outspoken, loud, and messing up the comfortable?
Round one wasn't what I thought it'd be
Round two I'm struggling to breath
3, 4, 5, 6, 7 times I wondered why I stepped inside this ring
I am the comfortable secure
The definition of this western world
And I have perfected deceit
Even I believe I'm above saving
I'll never let You see
Did you see that I was hurt?
Did you know that you had left me crying there?
Now I'm holding all you words close till you feel this pain too
But you live on so unaware
I've bowed out from this and can I say I'm sick
Now it's time for me to stand up and make you hear me
This world you rob innocence you never gave us a chance
Where would we be today if no man ever had strength to believe
If no man had a vision farther than their eyes could ever see
They are the one's who paved the way
