"Bitter Path" as written by Brett Callaway and Sonny Vega....
I’ve had enough of all these empty words!
This is not me giving up; this is me letting go
When hope is gone there’s nowhere left to run
I’m not running anymore; this is where I stand my ground!

For far too long complacency has been my only friend
And left me with sleepless nights that never seem to end
My God when did I become so heartless?
This can’t be what I’ve been living for!

I swore this fire would never burn out
These days I see it lingering
Where are the hands that I have come to trust?

This means to much to me to let slip through my hands
And even when my strength fails me I will still stand
I will not be pushed aside
Hopelessness and emptiness have no place in me
This may be the death of me, so be it

For so long I wish that this cup could be passed from me
But now I am starting to see this has been what set me free
And even though I may not understand why I walk down this bitter path, full of my regret
I can trust that I am never alone

    General CommentThis song is so amazing and just pure evidence as to why this band is amazing. They put so much heart and faith into their lyrics and I can relate so well. Not just as a Christian, but as a human. These guys are so amazing.
    The song is basically about almost losing your trust in God and faith in him, but knowing that you should still hold on because he will always be there for you.
