"The Abandoning" as written by and Hunter Lamb Brian Welch....
Wake up sleepy wide awake!
I am the walking dead
I am deaths best friend
I create disaster
I'm the master killing me
There's no innocence, only pain, I'm empty

Master master save me, master master kill me
Don't give up on me now, cause that's what I've already done
My body's breaking down
I feel my mind getting numb

Why do I hurt myself, why can't I escape this hell
I am always blaming, always chasing broken dreams
I keep screaming out, but no one ever hears me

Master master save me, master master kill me
Don't give up on me now, cause that's what I've already done
My body's breaking down
I feel my mind getting numb
Bleeding from my disconnection, lost inside myself
Forsaken by my own reflection, abandoning myself

I'm wide awake on myself I'm wide awake
Give up, give up [2x]

Save me!

Master master save me, master master kill me
Don't give up on me now, cause that's what I've already done
My body's breaking down
I feel my mind getting numb
Bleeding from my disconnection, lost inside myself
Forsaken by my own reflection, abandoning myself

No!

I'm wide awake on myself I'm wide awake
Give up, give up [2x]

    General CommentThis song is a song about how he is changed by Christ and dying to his old self but is struggling with it and he pleads for Master or God to kill him or his old self and he's given up and body breaking down from it and it's a mind numbing process trying to be Godly but struggling every day with it so he pleads to have God give him strength. Powerful song. Really spoke to me as a growing Christian and an adult because I have felt exactly this in my walk with God or just in life and never had the words to express it until I heard this. Love and death are an awesome Christian band man.
