w/m Thom L. Inglin


Control is a factor I've tried to avoid
Trust is a way to be free
Moving away from what men have destroyed
I come ever closer to me

And the truth is ever before my eyes
giving away my disguise

Drawing so close to the center of all
Pulling back just to start again
While shards of a heart broken by man's great fall
Return to the scene of my sin

Redeemed by a lie I am not redeemed
Believing the cry of a "good" world that seemed
To be drawing me into the center of grace
Until truth slapped me right in my face

Burn, liar, burn and illumine my path
The death in your gaze I can see
As I move away from the hell of God's wrath
I come ever closer to me
