Baffled by the way she screams
Shattered hearts and bruising seams
Life is full of expectations never to be met
Singing songs of thankfulness could never be enough
Shifty eyes, the fakest grins
Shall I do the honors?
I turn my head thinking about this side of you
Oh, for my sanity I really need a brake
But I can't take the time away
The need is way too great
Will I let the world destroy me?

We are the lost
We are the sick
We are the sacred
We are the sacred
We accept you
For everything you are

We beat ourselves down and never think twice about judging or hating
Well isn't that nice
Cruel and filled with trials a lifetime it seems
They would turn around and spit in your face
I'm lost and I feel sick, well that's just too bad
I'd say it's time to talk, but I'm just not ready
You might feel sorry for a simple minded soul, but what baby wants, baby gets

We are the lost
We are the sick
We are the sacred
We are the sacred
We accept you
For everything you are

I'll find a chair, stand, and tell you how it is
Reminders for the past demand, never let it go
You fall short of being where'd you hoped you be

We are the lost
We are the sick
We are the sacred
We are the sacred

    General Commentthis song is about how Christians arent like a whole lot better than everyone else. we're sinners too. we're lost, were sick, but were made sacred by Christ. its kinda like, you shouldnt be turned off by Christianity or be scared to go to church because you dont have your act together. guess what? neither do we!

    General CommentThe "she" at the beginning I think maybe the church. The church is hurting because of the hypocrisy (shifty eyes, fakest grins) and legalism (expectations never to be met) in the church. At the same time, you find a contrast from what's inside as well(we've all shattered hearts). The struggles inside make us struggle (for our own sanity) but as Christians we don't leave because the need for Christ in the world "is too great".

    This kind of thing has always existed. There's always a risk of Pharisees and immature Christians (who aren't seeking maturity) in the church. However, it is up to those who are madly in love with Jesus Christ to recognize their identity in Christ (lost, sick, sacred) and then in turn be able to love those in the body of Christ and reach out to others. As true followers of Christ, we should make a stand and proclaim the truth even though we ourselves aren't perfect yet, but in the process of being perfected by Christ.
