Witness

lyrics

Your mouth is open but your mind is closed
You're hearing voices and you're seeing ghosts
Better see to that before your sense flies out
An unused brain's nothing to brag about

You run to Him to nurse your broken heart
Meanwhile your life is falling apart
Your bones are broken and you burn from within
But you don't have to crawl right out of your old skin

Save me, Jehovah!

You're leaving all of your friends behind
Leaving us thinking you're out of your mind
And in your psychosis you think you've found peace
But I don't think you even know what that means

Save me, Jehovah!

Everything you knew
Now it turns on you
I pray that you'll wake up
And see just what you are willing to give up

You used to say there was no heaven or hell
For a long time you were doing well
You're deceiving yourself, denying what's inside
What will you do when your whole life is a lie?

You've locked yourself away, hiding in the dark
In all your confusion you're missing the mark
If you pull this off you'll be one of them
It's as if you've died, cause we won't see you again

Save me, Jehovah!
