Don't put all Your hopes in this flesh
This flesh, this mess I am
Empty promises my steady diet
Won't be quiet till I
Spread so thin devotion
Thus far my notions rant
Don't put all Your hopes
Don't put all Your trust in me
You must not see I can't

Set the sights on failing
Target no control
Grips relax and lose hold

I lose my defense at Your answers
And I come all undone with Your gaze

Sunless skies this progress
Thicker skin can't stretch the length
Wearying with face set against the elements
Is how I spent my strength

Set the sights on failing
Target no control
Grips relax and lose hold

I lose my defense at Your answers
And I come all undone with Your gaze
I lose my defense at Your answers
And my resolve at Your counter ways

I can't run forever
With the lions loose on me
Show us no escape
Lest we forget we're dying
Fill my mind with Your thoughts
My lungs with Your breath
My mouth with Your words
My soul with Your death

I lose my defense at Your answers
And I come all undone with Your gaze
I lose my defense at Your answers
And my resolve at Your counter ways
