So scratch away the sand stuck in your ears
Water all the crops with showers of tears
Tell all those baby's mothers they don't need no fear
'Cause God's got their hearts in His hands

And we'll ask all of the painters if they dress in white
To walk around the streets in the dead of the night
Dance like guests at a wedding underneath the lights
Look at the buildings and say, "I touched that."

Oh, we always want to brag
Oh, we always want to brag

And just hold me underneath the water
'Til the old me dies and slips out of this body
Rip him out of my body
And make me new again

Well maybe I am the writer that will spark that flame
That makes the world believe in the right kind of faith
But perhaps I need to get these feet offstage
And find a smaller pair of shoes to fill

What I know is that I am my father's only son
Who said, "There will be time for sleep
When the work is done."
Keep your pedal to the floor until the race is won
What if the race is not a race at all?

Don't you crash into a tree.
Don't you crash into a tree.

Oh, just hold me underneath the water
'Til the old me dies and slips out of this body
Rip him out of my body
And make me new again

Hold me underneath the water
'Til the old me dies and slips out of this body
Rip him out of my body
And make me new again

He spoke His words to me like well driven nails
They sank like wind to rain to my rusty sails
The sailor's hands took flight and hung in the sky
Below a celebration that land's in sight

My heart puffs with pride as I am defined
The center of this room filled with all your eyes
Leading me to believe that I am so fresh and revised
But God, I am nothing if I don't have You

I am nothing
I am nothing
I am nothing if I don't have you

I met my brother in the hallway
Said he loved Jesus
I said, "I think I do too."
I met my brother in the hallway
I met my brother in the hallway

And said hold me underneath the water
'Til the old me dies and slips out of this body
Rip him out of my body
And make me new again

Hold me underneath the water
'Til the old me dies and slips out of this body
Rip him out of my body
And make me new again
