Track Name: Pride (feat. Alex Gutzmer)
Lost in a sea of my own sin
I struggle to breathe, I try to swim on my own
But I drowned in my uncertainty
Human pride is what's holding me back

Rip this pride from my heart, tear it to shreds
Is my pride keeping me from the truth?
Am I the Pharisee that I've tried so hard to stop?
Questioning my every motion, am I just in my cause?
Or just a wolf in sheep's clothing?
How long can I keep running circles?

I've wronged you every day of my life
I built the cross on which you were slain
You forgive, but how you ever forget?
(How could you forget?)
How could you forget?

My hands are stained with blood
I will never be washed clean
I live in denial that you are King

Where do I stand?
I'll stand on faith alone

Lost in a sea of my own sin
I struggle to breathe, I try to swim on my own

I sink deeper and deeper
With every thought of mine
Where is all the hope that these congregations talk of?
Is this what I'm called for or just a fantasy of mine?
Am I losing faith or just learning what following truly means?
Track Name: Flawed
The grass withers
and lowers fade, but the Word is eternal
But how is a good man unworthy?
How is your thinking so flawed
That just going through the motions punches you ticket?

Cut the strings from the wicked puppeteer
Set me free
Temptation knocks, but I will stomp it into oblivion
With the strength of Sali, nothing can stop me

God, enlighten this flawed heart
God, clear these blurred eyes

Temptation knocks, but I will stomp it into oblivion
With the strength of Sali, nothing can stop me
Track Name: Framework
Corruption!
In a place that's supposed to be my safe house
My place to disconnect
Ripped at the seams by the needle that sewed it together
Your crooked mind has no intention of spreading grace to the minds that only seek answers
Answers that you're supposed to provide
Yet you only wish to live for yourself
Your selfishness only destroys

She gave her life to Christ
Only to be cast out by the crooked mind that claims a false life of faith

You're the reason I won't come back
You're the rusting in the framework of that church
You're the reason those pews are empty
You're the reason for this loss of faith

Your crooked mind has no intention of spreading grace to the minds that only seek answers
This corruption ends with you
This ends with these hands
I won't see another humble soul turned away from faith
Turned away by you
