I won't take much of your time
I just want you to see
What I have made inside these lines
It's as good as I can be [x2]
This is all that I can be
Head tilted down, knees on the ground
I will ask, "Please, save me!"

I deserve for you to turn away
I was ashamed to speak your name
I can't believe that all you see
Is that you have covered me gracefully
You're all I want to be
You're all over me
Jesus,
Please, save me!

I won't take much of your time
I just want you to save me

    General CommentI have to say the first time I heard this song I cried. The lyrics are more real to me than most you would find about someone bearing heart to Jesus. I guess its easy for someone to miss the name in the song, but the moment I heard it, I realized that all of us in this world are so tightly connected and don't even know it. maybe it sounds silly, but that's the way it was and is. Its all about one man and how easy it is to become a slave to ourselves instead of a follower of the one who matters most.

    General CommentThis isn't a twenty one pilots song. Tyler wrote it, yes, but not for his band.

    Song MeaningDefinitely a powerful song. This is probably the one most obviously related to God.
    "Head tilted down, knees on the ground, and I will ask, "Please, save me!" Is someone praying, asking to be saved by God. "I deserve for you to turn away, I was ashamed to speak your name" is, I believe, praying for forgiveness in being apart from God and realizing their fault and feeling horrible about it. "I can't believe that all you see Is that you have covered me gracefully" is disbelief that God clans Jesus can be so forgiving and caring, even for people who feel that they don't deserve it. The lyrics are pretty straightforward, but the way Tyler delivers them is absolutely heart wrenching.
