Keep your head above the water, just so long enough
A current breaches a so called reef
I won’t be let down or fall away
He notions not today
Things will change
I’m just waiting for an S.O.S

Hold my hand and lead the my way
I’ll falter but at least I know that you’re here to stay
And you’ll hold my hand to your heart
I’ll keep a constant reminder
Of how to find my way back out of the dark and back to you
You’re my saving grace

Oh we’re drowning but there’s a ship on the side of me
Throw out the captives, leave that man be
Wait for the sign, forgive, forgive us
Don’t hold the value of your life against us

A dead silence rings out, a call to all of those in doubt
A brilliant light leads me home

Hold (4x)
Hold my hand and lead my way
I’ll falter but at least I know that you’re here to stay

Sacrifice Yourself (3x)

Turn around, turn around, lay it down now
Turn around, turn around, back down (3x)

    General CommentWoah, no comments?

    I know this is a religious band, so this is probably a song about the realization that not everyone is as loyal to God as they were meant to be. And he's feeling that since God is always there for each of us, that we need to be there for him and we need to serve him. This is also kind of a wake up call to him and he's wanting to start over or try harder to serve God now.

    I might be a bit off at parts, but for the most part I think the meaning of the song is blatantly obvious.
    It's one of their better songs though Cocaine is still my favorite.

    "I'll keep a constant reminder of how to find my way back out of the dark, and back to you. You're my saving grace."
