Now you're lost but found
The sinking sand has pulled you in and brought you down
Struggle that's beyond yourself
Don't you know you gotta get up, get up and find a way back home
So hold on tight, let's go
And leave behind false sense of hope
Where creeping shadows call your name

As I'm waiting for the world to end
I'm clinging on to oxygen
I'm pulling captives by the hand
Come home, come home
Come home...

Words come and go
But how will your actions unfold?
Your character will be shown when lights go down now
Creeping shadows call your name (creeping shadows)
Posession is their claim
Now turn it around, turn it around

As I'm waiting for the world to end
I'm clinging on to oxygen
I'm pulling captives by the hand
Come home, come home
I'm waiting for the world to end
I'm clinging on to oxygen
I'm pulling captives by the hand
Come home, come home
Come...home

The world is falling faster
Falling so take this step and leap
To bring you over from the other side

I'm waiting for the world to end
I'm clinging on to oxygen
Pulling captives by the hand
Come home, come home
There's something inside that box you close
That only opens when your life explodes
On the other side, come home
Explodes, on the other side, come home
Come home
Come home
Come home
Come home
Come home...

    General Commentto me, this is about surviving til jesus returns or you die. its super super tough but youre trying to tell a bunch of other people about God too. (freeing the captives and trying to get them to come home too. home being heaven)

    i like the line "Your character will be shown when lights go down now" it means the true test of who you are is what you do when no one is looking, and how you survive the hard times.

    i also love the vocals.
