It's like I'm tired of life
Lord I'm wrong I can't get right
Lord it's Dark and I can't get light
Why it can't be light it's so heavy
Why my sin won't let me see the end
Come get me, please come get me
My thoughts, my mind, my ways all evil
I'm s'posed to be your people I'm s'posed to see your sequel
I said I'll never leave you
But I'm so left I ain't right Lord I'm sleeping with death
Man, I'm cheating with death
Am I deaf cause it's like I don't hear you
I question my salvation cause it's like I don't fear you
I'm on a selfish island I am no where near you
God I really need you even tho I don't appear to
I'm drinking out a broken cistern that could never hold water
And I'm gonna get burned
Tho I try I never satisfy or quench this yearn
I hear you calling but it's like a fight for me to just turn
I deserve to burn

[Hook:]
Help me Lord before there's no time left
I ain't living I'm just breathing to death [echo]
Your ways are perfect and they lead me to rest
Mine are evil and they lead me to death
(repeat)

I'm feelin' schizophrenic
Maybe I'm not saved cause I have to get high
Just to block out all the pain
Seen death, seen hurt seen a whole lotta thangs
But instead of running from it I'm running away from change
It's like I'm outside in the ice cold weather
The rain's coming down and I keep getting wetter
I know I'm getting sick and I could die any second
But still I refuse to let your truth make me better
I'd rather eat flies and maggots instead of bread
And it's killing me slow but I can't get it through my head
You were stabbed you were murdered
And for me is why you bled
But I spit on your bloody face as if I never cared
Lord how dare I compare my pain
Your father turned his back
And you were left to hang
I don't know why you did it that I can't explain
How can you love this sinner whose desecrated your name
Lord I deserve the flames

[Hook:]
Help me Lord before there's no time left
I ain't living I'm just breathing to death [echo]
Your ways are perfect and they lead me to rest
Mine are evil and they lead me to death
(repeat)

I know I tell lies
I know I do dirt
Apart from you I'm nothing but you can give me worth
I don't know if I know you
But still I know I should
I know these days are evil and only you are good
I've to the conclusion that I would like to change
Cause all the worlds money and fame cannot sustain
I know that I should turn but that's the hardest thing
Cause do I really feel that having Jesus is my gain
The world is so filthy
Satan is a beast
He hypnotizes my eye to say the least
But Jesus be my treasure to know you is live
And I am here dying trying everything there is
All I need in life is you
Help me turn away from sin
Give me grace to turn away and the fear not to give in
I know that I'm not perfect but if I could rest in Him
I know I don't deserve it but still I'll take your hand

[Hook:]
Help me Lord before there's no time left
I ain't living I'm just breathing to death [echo]
Your ways are perfect and they lead me to rest
Mine are evil and they lead me to death
(repeat)
