"Lead Us Home" as written by and Ryan Clark Don Clark....
One more day
This time I'll bite the bullet
Let me stay
And set this life ablaze

Give myself to compromise
And let the hammer fall
From blackened eyes to broken ties
I've bled to know them all
Driven to the brink of death
I heed deceptions call
Through bitter tears, forgotten years
I've come to sever all

Lead us home
Lead us home
Our tired hearts are failing now, from the inside out
Lead us home

One more time
This day I kill the witness
Take back what's mine
And give disgrace a name

Give myself to compromise
And let the hammer fall
From blackened eyes to broken ties
I've bled to know them all
Driven to the brink of death
I heed deceptions call
Through bitter tears, forgotten years
I've come to sever all

Lead us home
Lead us home
Our tired hearts are failing now, from the inside out
Lead us home

Blessed hands will tear me off
And break me at the wrist
Drag me back to solid ground
And slay the fate I kiss

Lead us home
Lead us home
Our tired hearts are failing now, from the inside out
Lead us home

    General CommentI think this song, as ambiguous as this is going to sound, is really about the redemptive power of Christ. It's a cry to lead us home, because the rest of the lyrics describe living life in a sense where we are flirting with a destiny we cannot but recognize as death, tempting though it maybe. But Christ tears us away, even breaking the wrists we are clinging to it so eagerly with and drags us back to solid foundations, and slays the fate we've kissed, or flirted with.

    This song is one of my favorites on the Album. Quite heavy, quite meaningful, quite good.

    General CommentJUST picked up this CD and am typing while I listen to this song for the first time.

    My impressions right now are that no matter how much we fall into sin and "heed deception's call", Christ will "lead us home".

    Hence the "Blessed hands will tear me off
    And break me at the wrist
    Drag me back to solid ground
    And slay the fate I kiss"

    General Commentone line gives this song its meaning (to me, anyway).

    "our tired hearts are failing now, from the inside out"

    its a cry of sorrow to God to leave the world of brokenness. and in the end, God brings us "back to solid ground"
