Death-Proof

 
Is this the reality of misery
When we give false glory to the pedestal of affliction?
And I ask this of the mirror
As I dismiss my rights to assume anything on anyone

Pin the sorrow on the heart made a jack ass of
When stubbornness finds ego hand and hand with dwelling
Depressions bid of self focus breeds intolerance
As dissatisfaction makes a god of our preferences

When nothing is nearly as bleak as it appears
As hopes are stolen by the boast of illusions
The grass is always deadlier on the other side
And all we’ve been given is nothing more than we have the faith to overcome

Make boast of the grace to face the mountain before you size up the trial against God
As if our complaints join our giants in their blasphemy
And who am I to speak right when I’ve been a fountain of death
But only to reprove eternity still lives on in the face of it all

Heartbeats again in the shock value
As the gratitude becomes the jolt to resurrect the system of the dead weight
Charge the defibrillator of our decree
Vows to reconcile life to the salvation of our victory
When there is something more alive in me
Death-proof in the face of what I see

When the odds are stacked against
In this place I make my recompense
To give place to vengeance
As integrity couples with honor to reinforce penance
And let God war on our behalf
We reap the spoils in the aftermath

As I remember yet again
Our battle is not of flesh and blood but the powers that dwell behind
The question remains who are we fighting for
Are we of a broken or a sound state of mind?

Speak what you’ll have when the Kingdom suffers the violence
As I learn the art of a time to speak and a time to resort to silence…
