While I wait
Today's the day for approach
Today's the day that I give for the first time
Inside there's nothing else for me
Inside there's nothing else

Where else could I go to find myself?
I'm heading out where I belong

I'll take a step...
I'll make a step...
I'll take a step for truth
I'll make a step for my life

Inside there's nothing

We'll break our necks so we won't look back

I am free
If killing yourself is the way to change
Let's go to war

And in all of this
All I wanted was peace

Just silence now
What is this I see?
I'll call this bet with my own life
Was this even for me?
Just past the edge
A simple move to make
(But complication's spreading fast)
My hands begin to shake

And in all of this
All I wanted was peace
I close my eyes and feel the water just beneath my feet

Step out onto the water
Stop staring at the waves

    I'll take a step for truth
    I'll make a step for my life

    taking the step of truth by asking God into your heart
    will make your whole life complete

    General Commentthis song has Biblical allusions to it. it seems its being written about taking a step of faith about something. and the "step out onto the water..." line refers to where Jesus was out with His disciples and He helped them all walk on water but as soon as they looked down or "look back" i.e. lose faith, they sunk.
