"I Cry" as written by Leslie Pridgen, Gary Byrd, Raeford Godfrey Gerald and Matthew Naples....
Oh how I love to feel the blade
Of self-inflicted pain
Yet I long to dwell in purity
My desire is for light to overcome my hate
Yet I play a whore to darkness and remain unclean

Let the hills hear my voice
As I shout out my plea
Let your perfect love pour over me

And I cry for the rain to fall
And I pray that it drowns my soul
Take my pain, I give it all
I cry

All my sins have found me out
And you will know me by the mark upon my brow
I am the killer free to roam
Adulterer that casts the stone
I am desolate due to the life I chose

I am a servant of love
And yet a lover to sin
I’ll do it over again and over again
I’ve done it again

    General CommentIt's about wanting and needing the Grace of God.

    Wow this song is powerful, and I just feel the same, that whenever I mess up, I have God, who will send the Rain to flood my Soul.

    General CommentI've seen these guys in concert, and their amazing!

    This song is about a person being torn. They wants so badly to be good, but they feel like the skeletons in their closets are holding them back, and they feel like a "killer free to roam", and they feel stuck that way.

    General CommentI love the metaphore at the beginning.... (it almost scared me away, this being their first song I heard) ... at first, I was like, "oh, no... a song about the wonders of cutting" ...but when I kept listening, I realized that this is an amazing song (and the video was really well made, too) Sin is self-inflicted pain. Sometimes when we do stuff we think is fun, we don't realize that all we're doing is hurting ourself. Those first lines are really brave.
