Crawl Your Way Out

I've lost everything
Does holding to it all still make me weak?
I'm guilty of this, I know it's a flaw
Can't find the words to sing to say what's wrong

Somebody please tell me where to go
I'm lost, alone, tryna find a road
To a place called home like the prodigal
I want redemption, if possible
A chance for me to say a simple sorry
For not minding spirit but minding body
A chance for a turnaround, to reverse the hurt I'm nursing
While I work at a better version

Imagine being on a long road with the wrong load
At the point when you think you've almost lost hope
Because the load ain't the kind that you can share it
Only you can carry it, only you can bear it
But it weighs a ton, so before you reach your dying hour
You look to a higher power
That responds with, "The fight is ours"
And before you can even reply, it counters:
"You hate your reflection, you're dying to change
You fall and you fall, every time it's the same
But you'll lose all the doubt if you live by what I say
And one day you'll tell it:

'Look into my eyes
I thought I'd never make it anyway
My God is right beside me as I'm lying awake
And I'll be holding onto this like it's all that I have...'
"

I've lost everything
I don't really even care what they say about me
I'll push into it all, fight until I fall
Even if I have to crawl my way out, I will...
