Building A Better Me

Superficial nature wearing thin.
I can't seem to begin.
What really do I see when I stare back at me?
As crushing time reveals my foe,
Inheriting all woe.
Solutions in the past,
Conditioned not to ask.
It's what you're meant to be,
Your name and number.
Be all that you should be.
You will recover things you haven't lost,
Because they don't see you like you think they do.
Please just become you.
"Release your fear" is what he said.
This all came to a head.
Feel cheated out of you,
Tradition follows through.
Though I can't see how this will end,
I know that you will always pull me through.
My soul went searching for a cause
But came back empty-handed.
The emptiness you see...
Building a better me.

    General CommentThis song is awesome.... The video for this song is awesome too!. What is basicly means is God will never put you through a situation you cant get out of.. And with his power you will over come sin and other strugles in your spiritual life. i give this song a thumbs up!

    General Commentfirst up, i am not christian, but i like alot of christian punk.

    i always thought this song was about being yourself, and overtime being comfortable with that self.

    i really hope this song isnt about god never putting you in a situation you cant get out of, as element sk8er says, coz that is fucking stupid....

    trying telling that to all the people in the armenian, jewish, rwandan or sudan genocides.
