The omega worship song

I close my eyes for a second
And meet a fragile soul
I scream to hide that I’m lonely
The echo calls my name

In Flames
“Take This Life”

Some of the most inspired, prayerful songs come from unexpected places.

I think Churchians do themselves a disservice in general by shunning the unpleasantness in life. They prefer to feel emotions that suggest everything is okay, and yet this attitude completely ignores biblical reality. This world is a broken, nasty place filled with broken, hurting people. Evil is more common than goodness or holiness.

Who knows this better than the world’s outcasts? Why do we tell them not to despair, when that’s clearly the rational response to their reality?

This powerful psalm expresses man’s most fundamental desire:

It’s not so much the pain
It’s more the actual knife
Pretending, the picture is perfect
I cut myself to sleep
I close my eyes for a second
And meet a fragile soul
I scream to hide that I’m lonely
The echo calls my name

If I ever… If I never…
Make me understand the thought whatever
Make me see… Make me be…
Make me understand you’re there for me

Take this life
I’m right here
Stay a while and breathe me in

The water drops just beg to hit me
Why now? Hasn’t rained for days
No time to play hide and seek
I call upon you to take me on
Break me down to pieces
Put me back, do it right this time
Struggling to fill this empty shell
Burn my efforts in the end it means(Nothing)

These thoughts… burn a hole in my heart
These thoughts… are what keep me feeling
These thoughts… burn a hole in my heart
These thoughts… are what keep me feeling
