"Too Far Gone" as written by and Matthew Preston Slocum....
I built these walls with blinders on my eyes
Brick by brick and now I realize
That I'm shut out I'm shut in
And every time I try to reach out I reach in
I break my fingers on the bricks
Why do I do this to myself
There is really no one else to blame

[Chorus]
So could you reach down and pull me out
Or am I just too far gone to be saved?
Or am I just too far gone to be saved?

I take my falls, hands pulled behind my back
You made the knot and didn't leave much slack
Now I'm tied up I'm tied down
Now every time I try to fly up I fly down
Into the sea and hold my breath
I am a mirrored rumble fish
Life is so clenching for the kill

[Chorus]

So could you reach down and break my will
Or am I just too far gone to be saved?
Or am I just too far gone to be saved?

I'm shut out, I'm shut in
And every time is try to reach out reach in
I break my fingers on the bricks
Now every time I try to fly up I fly down
Into the sea and hold my breath
I am a mirrored rumble fish
Life is so clenching for the kill

[Chorus]

So could you reach down and pull me out
Or am I just too far gone
You'll never be too far gone,
You'll never be too far gone to be saved.

    General CommentI think it's building your own emotional wall and she's wondering if there's anyone that can break it

    Song MeaningIt's about the uncertainity of fear of losing salvation. Fear of locking ourselves inside our own ivory tower.
    But with God, nothing is impossible, and You shouldn't worry about losing Your salvation. Jesus is always there to give a helping hand.
