So my dissent was a shallow defense I made to lay waste to the powers of fate
And all the blame I carry around my neck, a dead cycle of pain that I chase to find my way

When the sovereign comes to me / I eclipse in the shadow’s veil / Killing all I seek to be / For the passing vain inhale

A fall to the fires of Hell never failed to awaken
Though my soul ascend, in the darkness of my heart again... I’m God forsaken

With every turn I fail to learn my path and it’s wearing down my days
To be the voice of a half-dead, suffering age / A never-ending seek that I chase to find my way

Now the grave is all I see

    General CommentTo me this speaks to my heart about Feeling. I sometimes feel as if I'm abandoned by God and that I can't feel His love for me. But the truth in Scripture is that He does love me and that I cannot escape my salvation or Christ's love (Romans 8:38-39 NLT) Everything is really good and under control even though my feelings may speak otherwise

    General CommentI think this is in reference to Psalm 22. In the beginning of the Psalm, David is struggling because God is not answering him. Psalm 22:1-2 says "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest." Throughout the Psalm, David goes back and forth between feeling God near and feeling far from God. This song also reflects this.
