Always did it on my own then one day I realized
I was blind.. nothing I could do on my own
Turn, we have found a way to see, look up... feel the Almighty
Take control as we gaze into your eyes
We're just the tool you use to bring this world to you
Oh, Lord, how we love you
With your grace, take away the hurt and the bruises inside,
reach down let your glory reside
The cross carried for all of us, paint the image in my mind
So I will never think I am something,
but nothing am I but you, you are something
Lord you keep me alive, you give me rest at night
When there seems no way to find calmness in the storm you come and
take me in your arms and then the waves drown me no more
With you I'll last this battle and many others
Through the ages your name will reigh forever... never to be replaced
In these trials I face, I pray you humble me
Humble me I want to be like you Jesus more and more like you
I was crucified on that day with Christ
Nailing you there with sin, accepting you
I nailed my soul to the cross and now my life begins
This world so cold but your love keeps me warm
My father holds me in his nailed scarred hands which I put there
But for some reason he still loves me with all his heart
Even through I betray him constantly
He always keeps his arms open waiting, till I give up my old was
God my father, you are the only one that can give me comfort
You touch my heart in such a way that all I can do is cry your name
Jesus Christ I love you
My heart aches for your love

    General CommentThats not a very nice thing to say, especially if this is a christian band. I don't know if you are just saying that or if you actually believe that is what the song means, but if you do think that is what it means then you are wrong because this was written as a love song to God. Can you at least have some respect for the people that do believe in God? By the way, this song is saying how he loves God and how God loves us back.

    General Commentwell i didnt know this was a christian band...yet they totally kick ass. i was raised in a christain home, but i could never make it work for me. i really respect these guys (especially this song) for being so passionate about something that isn't easy. this is a great song, however you want to look at it.

    General CommentI'm athiest, and underoath's songs still mean alot to me. i've given up on religion personally, and i dont push my beliefs onto anyone, but i understand how music translates the way the band feels. you should keep any negative comments about other beliefs to yourself.

    General Commentwell first off, You shouldn't go to a Christian band's lyric page and put "God sucks", but freedom of whatever... just
    have some respect for people and their beliefs rather they believe in God or not. Who are [you] to pass judgment on someone else? Nobody.

    This song is pretty blunt, it's about Jesus Christ :).

    General CommentMy grandmother told me that this song will lead me to satan.
    I don't believe that it's true.
    This song was made by christians and a praise for God.
