You give us dreams to wake us up
You say, take pride in the provision
When all we see is the face of defeat you say
Take pride in the provision
My future’s finally found me, figured me out
It’s painful, it's tough, I never saw it coming
Come as it may, because all of this life is a lesson
I’d rather learn than end up in a cold covered up dark grave

These are the words of a man who finally let go
These are the goals of a man who’s laid it all down,
Losing it all made me realize

I am the victim, the culprit, the casualty, and the 'cause
Losing it all led me to you, to you
Losing it all led me to you, I’m sick
I need sight, I need help, I need you, and I’m not getting any better

I am the deceiver, I’m not getting any better
I’m the thief, the whore, the murderer
It’s times like these, It’s times like these
you forget to remember who you are
The way up is down, truth is found when life throws you out
And kicks you to the curb
I’m just as much the problem as the man behind bars
He did with his business what I do in my heart
You wronged me, you crossed me, I’ll never let it ruin me
Lessons are learned deep down within my heart, in my heart
The worst men make the best stories come true
The past is a part of me
But not who I am

I realize my identity is not in
What I've seen but in what I believe to be true
I know what I need now
All that was lost is not lost
Even the worst of mankind can’t disrupt sovereignty

You've given me this nightmare to wake me up
You say, Take pride in the provision
You’ve given me more than enough
You say, take pride in the provision
