歌词

1. BEAUTIFUL BRIDE

Unified diversity
Functioning as one body
Every part encouraged by the other
No one independent of another
You're irreplaceable, indispensable
You're incredible
You're incredible

[Chorus:]
Beautiful bride
Body of Christ
One flesh abiding
Strong and unifying
Fighting ends in forgiveness
Unite and fight all division
Beautiful bride

Strengthen your arms now
Train your fingers for battle
Urgency's here now
Train your fingers for battle
Fighting this violence
With your feet wrapped in peace
Sad tears and silence
Now screams of joy
Victory

[Chorus] (x2)

We're not gonna fall and forget
How far You went to pick us up
If one part's hurt the whole body's sick
If one part mourns we all mourn with Him
Rejoice, we'll sing with you
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah


2. AGAIN

I love the way that your heart breaks
With every injustice and deadly fate
Praying it all be new
And living like it all depends on you

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

I love that you’re never satisfied
With face value wisdom and happy lies
You take what they say and go back and cry
You’re so close to me that you nearly died

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

They don’t have to understand you
Be still
Wait and know I understand you
Be still
Be still

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
The floodgates are breaking
And pouring out

Here you are down on your knees
Trying to find air to breathe
Right where I want you to be again
I love you please see and believe again

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Right where I want you to be again
See and believe!


3. CHASM

Break up already wake up now
Walk away take it all back now
Don’t be quick to lick the scab off
Your spitting in his face with the rest of them

Break up already wake up now
Walk away take it all back now
Don’t be quick to lick the scab off
Your spitting in his face with the rest of them

Please give me something I’m so thirsty, I’m so thirsty
Oh please, let me warn them,
Don’t you come here, don’t bring anyone here.

The chasm isn’t fixed yet.
Take this water
Drinking ever deeper
...Living water.

Please
Give me something
I’m so thirsty
Oh, Please..
Let me warn them.
Don’t you come here
Don’t bring anyone here

please…

Please
Give me something
I’m so thirsty
Oh, Please..
Let me warn them.
Don’t you come here
Don’t bring anyone here


4. MISSING

I saw the queen
Swam out below her star on sea beneath
Though I lifted up my hands to her
She never lifted me

Oh something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone
Found something sweet
On the island with daughters of eve
But through thick and thin
They've gone away and only left their grief

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
Something missing in me

Down here love wasn't' meant to be
It wasn't meant to be for me
All is vanity underneath the sun
All is vanity

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me
As lovers left me to bleed alone


5. THIS CLOSE

Had a dream that we were dead,
but we pretended that we still lived.
With no regrets we never bled
And we took everything life could give
And came up broken empty handed in the end
In the hearts of the blind,
Something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real but
I never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window
I've been dressing in your clothes
I've been walking dead,
Watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

Had a dream that fire fell from an opening in the sky
Someone warned me of this hell,
And I spit in his naive eye
And left him crying for my soul he said would die.
In the hearts of the blind something
You'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore.
Not once in life have I been real,
but I've never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window,
Been dressing in your clothes,
I've been watching you long enough to know I can't go on.

In the hearts of the blind,
Something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore.
Not once in life have I been real,
But I've never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window,
been dressing in your clothes,
I've been watching you long enough to know I can't go on.

I've been looking in your window
I've been dressing in your clothes
I've been walking dead, watching you,
Long enough to know I can't go on


6. THE KIND

Its like being in love you rob
Your own mind and defile your bed
You ignore the fate of the players who both end up dead
And you pretend for us and you pretend for them
This fairytale will make them jealous of you

But its not the kind that you talked about
And its just the kind that rips the clothing off your mind

She is feeding you and you lie with her
And for the first time your right arm becomes useful
As you sin with it you wanna cut it off but instead you
Thank god for all of the wrong you do.

But its not the kind that you talked about
And its just the kind that rips the clothing off your mind

She is feeding you and you lie with her
And for the first time your right arm becomes useful
As you sin with it you wanna cut it off but instead you
Thank god for all of the wrong you do.

You cut the cord today with God's hand to hold yours steady
He waits for you to apply the pressure
The warmth of His breath wrapped in His words
As He repeats His Truth after Truth after Truth after Truth
And its just the kind the kind
You talked about and its just the kind
That clothes your mind with Christ
He is feeding you and you know the truth and
I pray this is the last song I will sing to you
I'm sorry Father, I'm sorry sister, I'm sorry brother,
I'm sorry everybody.


7. IN THE DARK

I've written songs in the dark
I've felt inspired in the dark
I hide myself in the dark
Used to be afraid of the dark
Those in the light know we die in the dark

There's only artificial light
My flaws hide well here
I used to be afraid of cluttered noises
Now I'm afraid of silence

Fill this space Idle words
I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did, like you did.

Now I am mute despite myself
All of them are gone
The silence overtakes me
The idle words forsake me and I am left to face me
I'm held accountable
For every idle word
Curse the idle words

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did, like you did.

Glory shows up
Exposes us
I'm naked here
Forsaken here, by the dark, by the dark

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me in side this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did
Like you did.


8. SET APART THIS DREAM

Close your eyes little girl
You're a princess now
You own this world
Twirling in your twirly dress
You're the loveliest far above the rest
You build your castles in the skies
Stars reflecting off your eyes
And angels sing on silver clouds
And no one cries screams or shouts'
Oh set apart this dream
Set apart this dream for me

Close your eyes pretty girl cause
Its easier when you brace yourself
Set your thoughts on a world far off
Where we only cry from joy

Oh set apart this dream
Set apart this dream for me

Oh lovely and beautiful
Precious and priceless
You're so much more than you know
Heart of the purest gold
Pure clean and white snow
Clothed in such splendor
Oh what a beauty for me.

Oh set apart this dream
Set apart this dream for me.


9. SWEPT AWAY

Help help help
Out out out out out out out now now now now now

The evil fell from your pretty mouth
Wrapped in your classic voice
Angelic in your syntax,
Demonic in your motive your eyes don't know
That the water flowing from this well isn't fresh
Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Turn all the way around
Be swept away by this.

Time for surrender
Spread out your open hands
And He will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken
And watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

Your clothes are smooth and spotless
The air is putrid sewage downwind of
Your pressed church clothes
Your eyes are black and empty
Your deeds are just for showing how big
And bright your fake smile glows
I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do.

See them surrender
Spread out your open hands
And he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken
Look at the healing come
Spread out your open hands
Admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do
Get this hell out out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say so
Get this hell out get this hell out out out of my way

We spread our open hands
And he is rising up
Repairing all that broken
Look at the healing come
We spread our open hands
Forgiveness holds them up
We're swept away by this.

Out out out out out out
Now now now now now now


10. TINY HEART

Tiny heart, stuck inside yourself
When will you open up for me?
I love you so, wanna meet you again
Before one of us must go.

Your lips touched every hand but mine
In the shadows you shall find
When will you get back to me so we can rest?

Tiny heart, you're not by yourself
When will you recognize the beat?
Of my own heart, making your blood flow
So that your chest can rise and fall.

Your lips touched every hand but mine
In the shadows you shall find
When will you get back to me so we can rest?

You will never know what you have done to me
You will never know losing your love for me
You will never know a single day alone.

Tiny heart, stuck inside yourself
When will you open up?

Your lips touched every hand but mine
In the shadows you shall find.
When will you get back to me so we can rest?

When you choose me, I'm waiting for you.
Always waiting.


11. MELTING (INTERLUDE)

(Instrumental)


12. TREASURE

Can I tell you a story as we dance while the sun starts to bleed
Song of songs love is calling daughter wake up from your sleep

Refined I'll become the most dazzling precious treasure
I'll be treasured over all the earth

Bearing the gift of a new heart
Patience ablaze I'm slowly burning

Refined ill become the most dazzling precious treasure
Ill be treasured over all the earth

I am in awe and in shock
I'm in love and given away
I'm reserved with these words:

Can I tell you a story as we dance while the sun starts to bleed
Trees rejoice with the wind here
Hallelujah, Yes Shua

Tonight I've become the most dazzling precious
I am treasured over all the earth
Just look at what he's done
How he's laying down his life
Take this life
Oh most dazzling precious treasure
Tonight I've become the most dazzling precious treasure
I am treasure over all the earth.


13. CIRCLE

Circle encircles the earth
Chance and choice break his heart
His innocent arm moves to save me and I am spared
His beautiful arm is bloody and cut off
His heart ripped out to show me he loved
But I would not believe him
He did all that he could
I still would not believe him

I left his arms empty and tied
Out stretched for me until he died
I left his arms empty and tied
Outstretched for me until he died
No man shows greater love
Than when a man lays down his life
For his beloved

I left his arms empty and tied outstretched until he died
I left his arms empty and tied outstretched until he died

Here I'm alive
And I don't have the right
He gave me the right
Costing him his life
New mercy's in the morning

I believe! what if I believe you now
Could it ever change this

I believe! what if I believe you now
Could it ever change this


14. ARISE

Tell the swine
We will make it out alive
There’s a note
In the pages of a book

So sleep tonight
We’ll sleep dreamlessly this time
When we awake, we’ll know that everything’s alright.

Sing to me
About the end of the world,
End of these hammers and needles for you.

Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for
There’s some strength left in us yet
Hold on to the world we all remember dying for
There’s some hope left in it yet

There’s snow on your face
And your razorblade
Twilight is bruised
And there you lie

Sing to me,
About the end of the world,
End of these hammers and needles for you.
We’ll cry to night
But in the morning we are new
Stand in the sun will dry your eyes

Hold on to the world we all remember fighting for
There’s some strength left in us yet
Hold on to the world we all remember dying for
There’s some hope left in it yet

Sing, Sing
Arise!!

Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.
Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.
Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.
Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.
Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.

Arise and be all that you dream,
All that you dream.


15. BREAK YOUR KNEES

Breaks your knees and leaves you so
The sun can burn you up and wear you out
It's an angry summer

There's no room to smile
When the face you make just before you cry
Looks so young like a child

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal

Life on earth will end for all conceived
And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal

Steadfast my love
The end is near
Just keep your eyes ahead
Grab hold of me
I'll help you there
You're never on your own
You're never all alone

Life on earth will end for all conceived
And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives

Breaks your knees and leaves you so
The sun can burn you up and wear you out
It's an angry summer

Don't look at the past again
The first and last has made everything new
And you are too
So lift your head
And let your story be told
Life on earth will end for all conceived
And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal (forever arrives)

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain

Life on earth will end for all conceived
And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives


16. ENEMY

I have made you an enemy
I have been my own enemy
I am asking for you to forgive me
For everything

If you don't
You're worthy of compassion
If you do
You're a better man than I am

If you don't know, you're my family
Enemy
I'm sorry
Oh, enemy, family
Forgive me

If you don't
You're worthy of compassion
If you do
You're a better man than I am
If you do
You're a better man than I am

Enemy, enemy, family, family


17. HAVE WE LOST

Please don't tell me any more
There's a weight in your eyes
And it weighs on my heart
Where have the children gone
We were innocent once
But that was so long ago

Have we lost our way back home
We have made mistakes I know
I know

Don't tell me of better days
There's a memory I have
Could be something I read
Of laughter and cheap guitars
In a house full of friends
Could've been one of ours
They stayed up and loved the stars
Can't remember the rest
Just a few parts

Have we lost our way back home
We have made mistakes I know
I know

I think they lost something that they miss
I wanna find that book
Dust it off and read it again
There was hope in the end

Have we lost our way back home
We have made mistakes I know
I know

We were braver still when we were young
And when we were young
We spoke in tongues


18. WHO AM I

I'm so glad to be here
This day has become sacred
I'm trembling with thankfulness
For all of this

Who am I
Who am I
That you have brought me
This far, this far
Who am I that you have brought me so far

All those years of spoiled complaining
I said its not enough
And you have forgiven me for everything
Everything
And you have given me everything
Everything
Oh its too much, its too much
You're too much, you're too much

Who am I
Who am I
That you have brought me
This far, this far
Who am I that you have brought me so far

Who am I
Who am I
That you have brought me
This far, this far
Who am I that you have brought me so far
