Maybe this time, no next time,
We'll get our laps/laughs? right, we'll get it right.
Will we just do what feels good,
And then we know it could cause our souls to drown.

In all the distractions of our lives.

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

Insecurities are breeding inside me,
And they won't let you go to song,
But they won't last against the sword's edge,
The blade, the blade cuts right through wrong.

All the distractions of our lives.

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

I wanna know,
I need to know,
I want to know.
(What does it really mean to be?)

I wanna know,
I need to know,
I want to know.
(What does it really mean to be?)

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

What does it mean to be,
Something light in a world that's speechless,
Something light in a world of darkness.

    Lyric CorrectionAwesome song! These are the official lyrics from Ivoryline:

    Maybe this time, no next time
    we'll get our lives right
    We'll get it right
    or will we just do
    what feels good
    though we know it could
    cause our souls to drown

    In all the distractions of our lives

    What does it mean to be
    salt and light in a world that's tasteless
    salt and light in a world of darkness
    What does it mean to be
    salt and light in a world that's tasteless
    salt and light in a world of darkness

    Insecurities are breeding inside of me
    They wanna choke our song
    but they won't last against the sword's edge
    The blade, the blade cuts right through wrong

    all the distractions of our lives

    What does it mean to be
    salt and light in a world that's tasteless
    Salt and light in a world of darkness

    I wanna know
    I need to know
    I wanna know
    What does it really mean to be…

    My InterpretationThis song poses the question of what it truly means to be used by God. Generally speaking, he asks what it means to be a light set upon a lightstand. He wants to know how he can accomplish that and everything that it entails.

    "Insecurities are breeding inside of me
    They wanna choke our song
    but they won't last against the sword's edge
    The blade, the blade cuts right through wrong" - some really powerful lyrics.

    The doubts and insecurities choke him from giving praise, but they won't last against the word of truth, or the double edged sword that proceeds from the mouth of Christ.

    Listening to this song will bring questions of what it really means to be "christian" or the "salt" and "light" of this world.
