I have been in this daily battle long enough
to know its time to bring this to an end.
a call to be pure, to be so clean.
a call for action
I lift my prayers to you father,
bring us to our knees.
Let me hear your voice in this time of need,
and take this lust away from me!

this is your redemption.
this is our freedom!
our freedom, our right,
tonight i make this promise,
to never let lust take over my life.
i know there will be many trials,
and i will be tempted,
but by your grace and your love,
i will defeat this,
and taste the sweet sweet victory,
in you Jesus

    General CommentQuite frankly, I don't understand why they wouldn't write about this. If you've ever seen them live, they are very passionate and have an amazing live show that's more about reaching people than it is about the music itself. They have just as much right to write about Jesus as a secular band has to write about a girl or stuff like that.

    But that said, this is a great song. Great message. Great music.

    General Commentthis bands music if awesome instrumentally and all but i dont get why bands like this insist on making really really hardcore songs that are about god and worship its confusing id like it better if it was about stuff more people could actually relate to but i still like the tunes and understand alot of them anyways but just saying id like it better if it was easier to relate to the songs.
