lyrics

The things I hate I do
The things I hate I do
And these things I hate, make me hate coming to you.

God I need you to resurrect me again,
My faithful, unfailing father and friend.
I’m so sick, of meeting you here at loose ends.
For just once in my life, would my resolve not yield to my bends.

The things I hate I do
The things I hate I do
And these things I hate, make me hate coming to you.

God I need you to resurrect me again,
My faithful, unchanging father and friend.
I’m so sick, of meeting you here at loose ends.
For just once in my life, would my resolve not yield to my bends.

In this flickering light, the house has no name.
and the knock at the door only stresses my pain,
as I’m mistaking my Dad for a wolf in the rain.
And if all I can do in a room full of weights, is set fire to the trainer who’s pushing my down, with the flames I find within me, that I thought had gone out,
and to the door I now run as I’m hearing my name, running into the light and away from the grave.
Into arms stretched wide open, this tidal wave sweeps me into the ocean, where the son of man meets me,
the dirt on my body met with blood from his heart, I crash into the water and he lifts me on out.
With a smile and with love my saviour refrains from rendering my weakness with bondage and chains,
But he sees me as clean, and he sees my as son and the chains I once are the strength he puts on!
