Every tree has got her root
And every girl forbidden fruit
And got her demons

And the path I chose to go
A different girl so long ago
I had my reasons

And she's in my head so loud
And screaming,
“Shouldn't you be proud of what you came from?"

“Oh you've been crippled and you've walked and
You've been shut up and you talked
So let's talk some more”

(One, two, three
The flashback to get me
On a one, two, four
The threat of the memory)

Where is the hand
For me to reach?
Where is the moral
I'll ever teach myself?
In all the black (black)
In all the grief (grief)
I am redeemed

And it's ripping at my heart
Because I'm dodging all the darts
And on a slow train

And then I'll wear it 'til it tatters
And it shatters on the floor
In instant replay

Oh, we're all rotten
And we're pure
And we're just looking for the cure
That feels like spring snow

And all we have is who we are
And where we been got us this far
So let me go

Where is the hand
For me to reach?
Where is the moral
I'll never teach myself?
In all the black (black)
In all the grief (grief)
I am redeemed

Well
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Where is the hand
For me to reach?
Where is the moral
I'll never teach myself?
In all the black
In all the grief
Through all the pain
And unbelief
These are the words
That they all scream
I am redeemed

    My InterpretationWhen we come to Christ and ask for forgiveness, we are redeemed. Now in living a life for Christ, we walk by faith. The Apostle Paul was a Christian killer until God first chose him and redeemed him. Paul's life wasn't the easiest life but he walked by faith and fought the good fight. He still had struggles with sin but the difference is he had the desire to stop them, asking forgiveness for them and knowing only God would see him through. God's peace, love and grace to you.
