Well I'm staring straight into the face of hell
You're so close and you can't even tell
I'm so wrapped up inside
Because I don't have much to love

Horrified I reel from pits unseen
Falling off my pedestal of plentiful deeds
As it crumbles down on top of me
I contemplate my lack of love

chorus :
Come and save my soul
Before it's not too late
I'm not afraid to admit
How much I hate myself

All these gongs and cymbals ring inside my head
Surrendered body to the flames has singed the skin
Can't speak in tongues and even if I could it's nothing
Because I cannot love


Well I'm staring straight into the face of hell
I'm so close and I can't even tell
I'm so afraid I'll amount to nothing
'Cause I don't have much to love
Much to love (x 3)

    General CommentI read the lyrics before I actually heard it. I fell in love with the words, but the music took a while to get used to. It seems... out of place.

    I love this song. It's preaching at me. I tend to like songs that do that. o.O;;; (i.e.: anyone, anyone by dbc)

    General CommentThe lyrics relate to the following Bible verses from Paul:

    "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal." (1 Corinthians 13:1)

    "For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate." (Romans 7:15)
