It is not safe to assume that I am like me... In anyway.
I do not even like the taste of broken words, or my broken promises.
I will not even waste my time here.

I know what I've been called to be.
I know it won't include me.
You're trouble, you're wasted, you know I just won't take this.
Sink or swim

There is no place for you in what I am called to do.
Heart under grace, I do not understand the way...
You curse, you bend my words, you just praise Jesus to be heard.
When will we ever learn?

    General CommentI think this is a song to himself and his sinful nature that he knows he has to get rid of. He's been living in a way that he shouldn't be living, and he's just now realizing that that's got to stop. "There is no place for you in what I am called to do." It's either the good or the bad, not both. It's sink or swim.

    General CommentI don't know, that could be it, but i always thought it was about a friend, and not being able to hang out with them anymore (which could be because of the stuff they do) and when he tries to tell them about jesus they just bend his words. the friend is just always troubled and wasted

    General CommentI thought it was about a girl... but i'm prolly way off... and she does a lot of bad things, and he just can't be part of it, even though he really likes it, and she does bad things and curses even though she acts like a christian on the outside (praise Jesus just to be heard)
