(metal screams)
in the bright morning my courage falls weak.
no excuse for my actions, no where to run.
consequence comes like raining fire, burning every part of me...
showing no mercy.
the day that i thought would never come, has arrived.
here i lay, a victim of my own decisions.
i've exchanged the wisdom of God for selfish pride...
thus my down fall.

(begin emo bridge)
my appreciation is laced within apologies,
for not becoming Your plan.
grace is where i lay my head.
for this is where the angels sit...
she spreads her silver wings to offer shade for my pale skin,
beneath the blinding sun.
(end emo bridge)

(metal screams)
consequence...no where to run, but to Your arms.
in all my shame...reconciled.
as i weather the storm, i fall to the ground.
i look to the sky, then His hand reaches for me...
...alas a new day.

(im not sure it's all here)

    General Commentone of my favorite metal songs. hopefall's combination of emo and metal are truly amazing. the spirituallity and musical quality intertwine to make beautiful, yet hard hitting, music. I cried the first time i heard the emo bridge...
