I look where I’m going, I look where I’ve been.
It’s hard not to miss it, I see it again.
Everywhere in the past, everywhere straight ahead,
The path is so flat, the journey of a life left for dead.
There has been no ups, there has been no downs.
On a path so flat, I scream for a crown.
The mountain is clear, the gate I should take,
The journey to glory, the path I can’t fake.
The trip will be rough, a leap of faith,
but I can’t stay here for your and my sake.
I can’t move alone. But how? But why?
What if? Then what? Too fearful to try.
Please help, please carry me.
Please pull, please push me.
The strength that I need, the strength I can’t find,
It’s in me, I know it, it burns me alive.
Lord, where are you? Where have you been?
I can’t seem to find You, not even within.
All this time I keep running, down my path so flat,
All this time you keep chasing, like a mouse by a cat.
You’re screaming my name,
I’m too deaf to hear,
I stop and I see You,
And tremble in fear.
Lord… what am I doing,
Please show me the way,
To the gate so narrow,
Lord, don’t wait.
“You have to let go,
You have to let me,
You’re fighting your cuffs,
Yet you’ve got the key.
Drop this world, its loves and its likes,
Let’s get this straight, let’s make this right.
You don’t belong here,
Your time is short.
You’ve got no time,
It’s time to report.
Love me and love others, your duty is clear,
Love me and love me, and know that I’m here.”
I see all before me, and see what was behind,
I lay it all down, and start my climb.
That path was so low, what a fool I have been,
I drop all my chains, let the journey begin.
