There's a familiar progession to the similar lives that we all lead
We're trying hard to become someone we can't be
You won't find grace without honesty

Everyone wants reality, so here it is: I believe that nobody is good

We are liars and thieves, we're destroying the peace
But we're trying

It's the same regression to the lives that we all lead
Everyone makes mistakes, but we find grace
We believe that there's redemption

If you want reality, here it is: I believe that nobody is good

There is nothing in our blood that makes the heart beat strong enough
Apart from grace, apart from love
I believe in grace
I believe with love that we can do good

    General Commentthis song means that we are all very unrighteous, even christians, although some christians try to be more like jesus by trying not to sin, we still do though, and it is a good thing that it is not by us that we can be saved, but by the grace of God and the sacrifice of Jesus. if we love God, we will try to be more like Christ, and therefore do better things, and even if we do not do better things, we will have the right heart.

    really catchy chorus

    General CommentThis song is, hands down, one of their best song on the new cd. Great chorus, it really demonstrates that the lead singer has a very nice voice. This song also shows the maturity which has taken place in Sanctus even from the last record.

    General CommentI agree with bolth of you!!! Compared to their first cd you call tell they are not kids anymore!!! I love this song with it's blunk honesty, "Everyone wants reality, so here it is: I believe that nobody is good." heck thats true! This song makes me think of us in our weak utempts to live as puny. But with the help of Jesus we can do good!!! "There is nothing in our blood that makes the heart beat strong enough
    Apart from grace, apart from love
    I believe in grace
    I believe with love, that we can do good" If that isn't hopefull I don't know what is!!
