Lyrics

I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride, flew too high
And like Icarus, I collide

With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
To give and die

To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of One who loved
More deeply than the oceans
More abundant than the tears
Of a world embracing every heartache

And can I be the one to sacrifice?
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow?

Take my world apart
I am on my knees
Take my world apart
Broken on my knees

All said and done, I stand alone
Amongst remainings of a life I should not own
Takes all I am to believe
In the mercy that covers me

Did You really have to die for me?
All I am for all You are
Because what I need and what I believe
Are worlds apart

And I pray
Take my world apart
I am on my knees
Take my world apart
Broken on my knees
On my knees

I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
And wipe away the crimson stains
Dull the nail that still remains

More and more I need You now
I owe You more each passing hour
Battle between grace and pride
Gave up not so long ago

So steal my heart and take the pain
And wash the feet and cleanse my pride
Take the selfish, take the weak
And all the things I cannot hide

Take the beauty, take my tears
Sin-soaked heart, make it Yours
Take my world all apart
Take it now, take it now

And serve the ones that I despise
Speak the words I can't deny
Watch the world I used to love
Fall to dust and blow away

I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
I wipe away the crimson stains
Dull the nail that still remains

Steal my heart and take the pain
Take the selfish, take the weak
And all the things I cannot hide
Take the beauty, take my tears

Take my world apart
Take my world apart
And I pray
And I pray
And I pray
Take my world apart

Worlds apart
