A song about the journey.


I’ve been going through the motions
Playing it safe
Focused on fulfillment
But looking in the wrong place
Is what I’m living for worth dying for?
Or am I caught up in a trend?
Searching for meaning on the inside
But just keep hitting the same dead end

Pull me out of this graveyard
I’m giving in letting go
Shake the dust off these dry bones
Breathe life into my soul
Tear down the veil around my heart
Remove this disease that’s kept us apart
I’ve longed for a new life for so long

From darkness into wonderful light
I was once dead, then given brand new life
From lost and alone to rescued and loved
Once an enemy separated now adopted as a son

Darkness to light
Death to life
Lost to found
Enemy to son
