Close Your Eyes

We Will Overcome tracks

Lyrics


1. A PROCLAMATION

You are my breath, and I wait for You to come and rescue me
We will raise our hands, and we will lift our eyes
To the hills where our help comes from
Where our help comes from

My God, how times have changed
There was a moment when I could call You friend
You gave me so much and I kept on taking
Now I am standing here and You don’t recognize my face
What have I become that I can’t call You friend?

I never thought my walls would be stripped away
The way your love pours out it takes my breath away!
Your hands have led me here and have never left my side
You leave me speechless

With every breath we take let our lives proclaim the promises we’ve made to You

I need more of you!
Because it’s Your love that has carried me through
The weight of the world seems to bring me to the ground
I know You’re watching me above the clouds




2. FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS FOREVER

Can you tell me how this ends!
I've never been so close to anyone, that's you
It feels like I'm dreaming, don't wake me up!

Today is for believing
And I am on my last breath
(My last breath)
The end seems so stale
I voiced my love to inhale
I'll be alright
As long as your here by my side!

Sail short
When knowing so much more
You're so much more than I deserve!

You always had to lend a hand
That's why I'll be right here next to you until the end
Never giving up
You're always there, to lift me up!
When times stand tough!
When times stand tough!
Hopes and dreams they are shared by you and me
This is where I want to be, you are my family

Sail short
When knowing so much more
You're so much more than I deserve!

You and I we built this together
Through every practice, this is ours to make or break
Through all the blood, the sweat, the tears
Everything's been worth it!
And I will protect us
Until my last dying breath

Oh!

Don't leave me here alone !
Cause I need you !
Don't leave me here alone !
For nothing !
Don't leave me here alone !
Cause I need you !
Don't leave me here alone !
Don't leave me here alone !

I won't leave you, here alone!
We stand by each other
I won't leave you, here alone!
We stand by each other




3. XCHET STEADMANX

Just wake up!
Stop living like there is no hope
We know what you’re going through we’ve been there before
I never thought that I would see you like this
All alone covering up yourself

You think that there is no one left who can get you out of your mess
But I will be right here until the bitter end

Step back!
Take a look around
You are the only one that can change where you’re at
Just make the best of every moment
Or you will get left behind

You think that there is no one left who can get you out of your mess
But I will be right here until the bitter end




4. DIGGING GRAVES

Senseless injustice! Tread on heads like dust of the earth
Cut off the hands of the ones that are reaching out
Are we so calloused that these cries are going unheard?
This blood covers me just as much as you

They say this world is what I make of it
Am I the only one that wants a change?
I’ve turned my back on all my brothers dying in their broken homes
I dug the graves of the ones I am called to love

We are forsaken! Empty shells still fill our seats
How quick we choose to forget the desolation in the streets
I can’t believe this; that we still won’t see the truth
I won’t quietly sit and choose not to be moved

Come stand with me; I’ll never walk alone
My words are not enough; I will love the unloved
Come stand with us; we’ll never walk alone
Our words are not enough; we’ll love the unloved




5. THE BODY

I’ve been shackled underneath all these lies for the last time
And I’m throwing them aside
There’s too much apathy that clouds my mind
Words cannot express the sadness I’m feeling

If this is all we are I’m walking out the door
I want no part of it
There has to be something more
Speaking hope without action can’t be the end
I can say, “I love you,” it’s never enough

Aren’t we the ones who walk the narrow road?
Aren’t we the voices that come from before the throne?
And when we stand for revolution’s sake the world will know,
they’ll know your name.

It’s never been enough
This is the end of all You have become;
open our hearts and let Yourself in

I won’t stand for this!
This can’t be the body You spoke of!
Because I have forgotten how to love




6. SONG FOR THE BROKEN

We’ll scream it loud!
This is a melody; it’s time to sing it out
So give us words before we all forget!

This is where I lift my hands and say enough is enough!
So many people are broken and they’re not getting up
This is our offering; this is our hope!
This is what we believe in, and we’re not giving up
This is our song

So sing out loud a chorus for us.
It’s all too much; I can feel my lungs collapse on me
Bitter soul why are you weeping tears that fall only for you?
This is our song

So sing out loud a chorus for us
It’s all too much; I can feel my lungs collapse on me

This is my worship; this is my life
To bring hope into this broken world
This is my worship; this is our worship!

This is our song
We’ll scream it loud!




7. 17:20

Bring me back to the days when everything made sense to me
Together we could move the mountains and watch them fall into the sea
Times have changed now that I'm older; where did I go wrong?
Life was beautiful when we got along

But I’m not giving up on this; we’ve come too far
Just to throw all we have into the wind
So many times I have given up on You. Will You take me back?
You can count on me

I’ll take this stand tonight; I’ll never leave Your side
You will have all of me

You have my word; I will never look away
So many times I have given up on You
You have never turned away. I need You more than words can say!
One life one chance!
Don’t take this for granted
We will move the mountains and watch them fall in the sea!

“He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly,
I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,'
and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you” Matthew 17:20




8. WAKE UP!

It seems like these minutes are getting longer
Waiting for these lights to go down
So clench your fist and hold your head up high
We are not alone in this crowd

I pray that this won’t be the last time that our stories share the stage
This is the reason we have come, and why we’ll never leave the same
It’s your face that we want to see; you’re the notes in this melody
In this song of life that you sing with me

There were so many nights that I sang these words out into the open air
I never knew that you would be the one who sang back into my ears
Wake up wake up now! I never thought that I would see this day come to pass
Wake up wake up now! If this is who I am I know I can’t be sleeping

It is not enough to be silent and never make a sound
So move your feet! Come on and be different; stand out

I need to hear your voice
I can’t sing this on my own
We’re stronger when we stand as one

There were so many nights that we sang these words out into the open air
We never knew that You would be the one who sang back into our ears
Wake up wake up now! We never thought that we would see this day come to pass
Wake up wake up now! If this is who we are we know we can’t be sleeping




9. BITTER PATH

I’ve had enough of all these empty words!
This is not me giving up; this is me letting go
When hope is gone there’s nowhere left to run
I’m not running anymore; this is where I stand my ground!

For far too long complacency has been my only friend
And left me with sleepless nights that never seem to end
My God when did I become so heartless?
This can’t be what I’ve been living for!

I swore this fire would never burn out
These days I see it lingering
Where are the hands that I have come to trust?

This means to much to me to let slip through my hands
And even when my strength fails me I will still stand
I will not be pushed aside
Hopelessness and emptiness have no place in me
This may be the death of me, so be it

For so long I wish that this cup could be passed from me
But now I am starting to see this has been what set me free
And even though I may not understand why I walk down this bitter path, full of my regret
I can trust that I am never alone




10. SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE

Oh that these waves of uncertainty would drown me and take me to my grave
I am broken for this cause
I’m tired of screaming words of hope and grace
I’m unmoved, unstirred, unwavering
Break these chains and set this captive free

Does anyone have the heart to stand with me?
I could never do this on my own
I stand by and watch my family slowly fall apart
If faith can cause the blind to see why can’t it pick up my brothers and sisters
Who have fallen down to the ground?
If there is no love then hope can never be found

Is this worth fighting for?
I am on my knees; I accept defeat
Is there hope for us?

How much love will we know to show if we have no love for ourselves?
It makes me sick to think that you and I live this way
How much love will we know to show if we have no love for ourselves?
It makes me sick to think that you and I live in apathy

I know it’s worth fighting for
I am on my knees, I can’t accept defeat
There is hope for us!
Even in our darkest days and when it seems that we’ve lost our way and it seems
There is hope, there is hope!
There is a reason why we lift out hands and sing

It’s wrong to say our hearts won’t change as long as You are here
It’s wrong to say our hearts won’t change as long as You are

Who will be the hands and feet?
Who will go share this love with me?
Who will be the hands and feet of Jesus?




11. ARMS RAISED

I lift my hands to the sky; You’re my desire
My hopes and dreams they are of You
I lift my hands to the sky; for Your consuming fire
So bright it burns, what’s left is Yours

Let’s go!

So many idle words have fallen from my lips
They pour just like the blood that fell from Your side
You gave up everything just to give me a second chance
I won’t take that for granted anymore

I found the plans that I have made were in vain, won’t make things better
I finally found my way, and I know that
All I needed was to find the truth and I found You
I will never look back

I’m letting go of my regret
I’m tearing down these walls I put up so long ago
You gave up everything just to give me a second chance
I won’t take that for granted anymore

With my eyes fixed on You I know I cannot be moved

And I must confess, I am nothing without you.
I am on my knees screaming take me home
