Track Name: Road Not Taken
I’ve been locked in here
In my own cage
Locked inside my fears
Too afraid to
Leave this realm of passionless nothingness
I stay inside my own sphere

But I’ve seen this road before
It leads nowhere
I know I can’t walk this path no more
I have to break away
I have to find the way

And I’m calling out to You
Save me, save me
For what can I do without Your grace
And I’m crying out to You
Lead me, lead me
For what can I do without You

‘Cause I’ve been safe in here
Inside this cage
Safe from harm and risk
Sheltered from the
Possible impossible, miracles
I stay inside my own fears

But I’ve seen this road before
It leads nowhere
I know I can’t walk this path no more
I have to break away
I have to find the way

And I’m calling out to You
Save me, save me
For what can I do without Your grace
And I’m crying out to You
Lead me, lead me
For what can I do without You
Track Name: Redemption
Wasting, broken
Waiting for a resolution
Fallen again
Stalling, don’t want to face the truth now

In the end it’s only You I come back to
You release me from my chains
Undeserved, every time
You amaze me

It’s a mystery
Your love for me
I can’t conceive
It’s beyond me

Gone in circles
Waited for a revolution inside
Stagnant standstill
Frozen here my soul is left on ice now

Even then You were with me, working in me
Despite my stubborn ways
Undeserved second chances
You amaze me

It’s a mystery
Your love for me
I can’t conceive
It’s beyond me

And I fall and I fail and I run away
Over and over and over again
And You take me back and You lift me up
Over and over and over again

It’s a mystery
Your love for me
I can’t conceive
It’s beyond me
All the things I’ve done
The times I’ve run
When darkness won
Still You were my Saving One
Track Name: Battle
Days go by, I slip away
My heart is dry, my skies are grey

Who do You want me to be
What do You have for me

Heavy burden on my soul
I ignore the Spirit’s call

Who do You want me to be
What do You have for me

I’m back, I’m strong
My faith is soaring high
I’m weak, I run
I turn away from it all

Battle inside of me
I do as the flesh in me
Ooh the flesh in me
But who have You made me to be
Track Name: Desperation
Desperation, only myself left to blame
Exasperated with my foolish, selfish ways
Lost my true love for the sake of courting this world
Will I find my way back into Your peace
Drop all my walls and come to my knees (yeah)

And in the midst of the breaking
The hurting, the aching of the soul
There’s a gift of mercy
Of hope and a chance to be remade whole
For all that is dirty
Shameful, unworthy inside of me
Christ wipes out, erases
His blood and His grace has set me free

Holy Father, I have failed You so many times
I’m despairing of defeating this nature of mine
Mighty Saviour, only Your strength is ever enough
To lift me back up, vanquish my pride
Take me apart and restore me to life

And in the midst of the breaking
The hurting, the aching of the soul
There’s a gift of mercy
Of hope and a chance to be remade whole
For all that is dirty
Shameful, unworthy inside of me
Christ wipes out, erases
His blood and His grace has set me free
