Crown of Thorns

i have failed so many times to become the person
the person that i long to be.
perfection, the standard of my everything.
unable to realize i bring my fall.

perfection, a task not possible.
i try so hard, not hard enough.
my God, lived without sin.
myself, i'm endulged in it.

my God how long i will sing this song.
and my God how long til i come home?
my God ill sing until i have no breath.
and my God come and take me home.

blood stained hands carry my sins.
my hands carry no such wounds.
your eyes have searched for me.
i look away. i look away.

i have failed to be the persion i strive to be.
i fall so short to the expectations.
you wore the crown of thorns, as i wear the crown of shame.

your eternal sacrifice
has torn a whole inside my heart.
i fail to sin, not for the last time.
i will rise back up, and cary on.

my flaw of the man i shouldn't be.
is not the man you died to see.
so ill learn to be who i should be.
and give back to you, and give less to me.
