If seeing is believing then they've gouged out all their own eyes.
they're confused by the love, the hate, all of the hypocritical lies.
their own misfortunes, creating the selfish disguise;
that will seed the beginning of their spiritual demise (2)

I can’t believe this is happening,
my faith depleting somewhere buried inside, alive;
afraid, unstable, but learning that these things will clear in time
I’m so scared, I’m so scared of what I might become

straying from the beaten path that I’ve been on for so long
finally moving forward in life, acknowledging my faults
that’s haunted my every move for what seems like years
my conscience screaming, realizing things aren’t as bad as they appear

still anchored in our old ways

and just when you think everything's going to be alright
defenses down, so vulnerable to what once had you gripped so tight

the miracle I needed, no longer mistreated
the life changing motivation, my only inspiration
calm the storms and ill walk the waves
my eyes are open, and I can clearly see

CALM THE STORMS AND I’LL WALK THE WAVES

I can’t believe all this is happening to me,
my faith depleting some where buried alive, inside;
afraid, unstable, but learning that these things will clear in time
I’m so scared, I’m so scared of what I might become
and just when you think everything ‘s going to be alright
I’m vulnerable to what once had me gripped so tight

    General CommentYeah, it is basically. Straying away from God/the Christian religion after having faith in it for so long. It reminds me of how we were learning about how Science is being able to prove something with one of your senses.
    If you can't, it doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't exist.
    There are so many things out there pushing him about from his faith.

    General CommentI beleive this song is someone screaming out to God who has strayed so far he cant even recognize himself anymore. ("I can’t believe this is happening,
    my faith depleting somewhere buried inside,")

    He then realizes he cant possibley be safe living in the pit hes in. ("I’m so scared, I’m so scared of what I might become")

    This fear causes him to run away from the pain and the fear and run back into the arms of God, realizing that God has been by his side the entire time.("straying from the beaten path that I’ve been on for so long finally moving forward in life, acknowledging my fault that’s haunted my every move for what seems like years my conscience screaming, realizing things aren’t as bad as they appear")

    And suddenly hes walking with Jesus once again ("calm the storms and ill walk the waves
    my eyes are open, and I can clearly see")

    The last verse just describes how vulernable he is without God and how any little thing could pull him away and eat him alive, unless he works on the relationship with his Father.

    General CommentI can�t believe this is happening,
    my faith depleting somewhere buried inside, alive;
    afraid, unstable, but learning that these things will clear in time
    I�m so scared, I�m so scared of what I might become


    The best lines in awhile.
