"Glass Heart Hymn" as written by Chad Mackenzie Howat, Justin Thomas Daly and Gavin Mcdonald....
Cut like diamonds
Set aside like an ocean's island
Or a child in a field
With nowhere to go

Memories as heavy as a stone
Memories as heavy as a stone

Cain was angry
And he moved in a blood red fury
So now one brother's dead
And one brother's born

There's a ghost in the mirror
I'm afraid more than ever
My feet have led me straight into my grave
Oh Lord have you walked away?
Oh Lord have you walked away from me?
From me?

Hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah
Let it rain, let it pour down on ya
x2

Memories as heavy as a stone
Memories as heavy as a stone

I am empty
In my end you are my beginning

There's a ghost in the mirror
I'm afraid more than ever
My feet have led me straight into my grave
Oh Lord have you walked away?
Oh Lord have you walked away from me?
From me

Hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah
Let it rain, let it pour down on ya
x4

    My InterpretationThis is the song of someone who has done something unforgivable, or at least something that they believe was horrible, even if it wasn't perceived as such by anyone else. They've tried to cut the memories of what they've done from their life and set them aside. But all too frequently something triggers them, bring those memories back to haunt them, weighing them down and preventing them from living life normally.

    In a moment of desperation at being so frozen by their fears they cry out to God - hoping that he'll respond (because a loving God wouldn't leave them feeling so miserable, right?) but assuming that he's walked away (because a judgmental God would certainly abandon someone who had done something as terrible as what they had done)

    And in that moment, a memory comes flooding back to them, or perhaps not so much a memory as vision. Either way, their mind is overwhelmed with voices singing a hymn of redemption. A song about grace being poured out on everyone. No matter what a person has done, they can be forgiven in the eyes of the Lord - they need only step into the rain.

    The horrible memories try to crowd their way in through this revelation. Instead of succumbing to them, the person states truthfully where they are - they are empty and would have nowhere to go, but Christ is their new beginning, and escape from this pain.

    The second "ghost in the mirror" and "hallelujah" verses are the person's retelling of their story - how they were so hopelessly lost, then wonderfully found.
