Figures Bathed In Light

from by Christian House Party



I shouldn’t be here, I feel so ugly
My skin doesn’t fit
Surrounded still I feel alone
Nothing to calm my nerves
I wish that I could go
I with that they would go

The fragile statues, they whisper secrets
I try to listen
A stranger in a strangers land
No one to take my hand
The walls are closing in
My eyes are closing

I cover my eyes, I close them tight and count to ten
The fear in my heart won’t suffer silent anymore
I light the candles, offer my prayers to the wind
My fingers tremble, a loss for words once again

Those figures bathed in light
Dancing and unaware
Their beauty tortures me
I can not help but stare
Please take me in
Make me one like you
I offer you my soul
There's nothing I won’t do

A curtain of lies, I’m not the man you think I am
I’m wasting your time, and such a shame it can’t be helped
Don’t turn the lights down and tell me everythings okay
I know what I say, it doesn’t matter what you say

Cedar scented, an offering to the sky
Cloaked in nostalgia, I can not help but wonder why
It's never so dark, for me to hide what I am
And in this garden my very presence is a sin
