lyrics

I curse my situation
I wear it on my face
Like a bitter teen
My father’s disgrace
I aim to ride the wind
A harlequin’s friend
We hold hands at the cliff’s edge in His backyard
Your lips taste like venom when we kiss in His garden
I push it far from my mind
Why do I do what I hate it’s not you
The devil can be no scapegoat

Why do I see that the problem is me
If I don’t have the power to change
Why do I do what I hate it’s not you
The devil can be no man’s scapegoat

I’ve got hope in God who knows just who I am
The painter of painters, The Author of color
In His mind is my mind
The first topographer, the compass, the water
The wine that gives life
The lamb and the shepherd, from my mess I’m delivered
Into the light, into the light

Why do I do what I hate? I can choose
The devil can be no man’s scapegoat
You make me see the problem is me
now give me the power to change
