Beneath the Encasing of Ashes Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Beneath the Encasing of Ashes (3:03)
Reach inside of me
Far beneath the encasing of ashes
Bleeding red
Still showing signs of life
Remove the darkness
Take me away
A Stream of Hope destroy this corrupted cell
Purification
(Leaving me desolate in the face of perfection)
Unable to hide I am drawn to the fire
It is this pain that brings me likely do
2. Torn Within (1:46)
Through this pain I refine
Tearing me from within
Screaming to be released but held fast by Your love
Hold me here
Break me until my face breathes upon this ground
Outstretched with my head to the floor
Spent of all my strength
Relying on Yours
3. Forced to Die (2:43)
Exhausted beyond repair
Stripped of all I had
Forced to die inside
Nw Ibreathe a renewed Life
I is now I see without my eyes
If this is what it takes
To bring me to my knees
Then feed me pain until
I realize I am but a slave
Remind me of my need for You
Remind me of who I am
4. A Breath in the Eyes of Eternity (2:58)
Emptiness running through me
Taking all that i am
Leaving me this blinding mask
Grasping for the wind
Everything I've done
Everything I've gained
It all means nothing
A mere breath has passed away
Sadness I embrace
Left with empty promises
I look at myself and see the scars
That are brought to me by this life
Then I ask myself
Is that all this world has to give
The chase is over I am finished
Stripped of every reason I cry out to You
From my knees I scream
5. Blood Turned to Tears (1:38)
This blood turned into tears
A broken heart runs my body
Dripping forth until I give my life
I have become a sacrifice
It hurts me just to think of you
I void the pain that is unbarring
(To know that I take these sufferings from you)
6. The Voices That Betray Me (2:58)
Shatter my emotions
Take them all away
Left alone to face You
Now You know my heart
Left only to speak what is true
See through this plague of flesh
With truth I say that I love You
Yet my heart betrays me
Be not far from me
For these voices
They must soon cease
Despite their betrayal
You died for me
7. When this World Fades (2:32)
You meant the world to me
All I have now is memories
Your love brought joy to my heart
You meant the world to me
Tears of sorrow stream from my broken soul
But I will see you again
When this world fades away
I will see you again
8. A Long March (1:56)
Only You know my pain inside
You've been there when no one else could be
When tears fall from my eyes
I know that You are always there
No matter what's in my heart
You are the One who cares
When I doubt, You stand by me
So I'm not ashamed to say the way I feel
I love You, You are my Everything
9. Surrounded (0:50)
Take me home
Imitations surround me
You are all I want to see
So why do I turn
To embrace what will never last
All my life I've tried
All my life I've failed
And one day I will see
Surrounded on every side
10. Refined By Your Embrace (1:44)
I cannot make it without You
All my efforts have failed
So that I will cry out in the need of You
Restore the strength of my Dependence
Send me through the fire
Make me pure again
Everything I am
I give it all to You
In Your arms I wait
I lay down my life
I am nothing without You
11. The Innocence Spilled (3:36)
For so long I was deceived
Enslaved by these chains
Blinded to Your forgiveness
If only I knew Your love
Giving Your life to save me from this pain
Broken and bleeding I turned You away
Now I have seen the scars inflicted by my hands
The Innocence spilled to save me
Reaching to the hand that brought You this pain
And now I am on my knees
Crying the way You wept for me
Crying, crying tears of shame
Dying, dying to take away their pain
I hear the screams of those who call from the grave
Dying for me to take their pain
12. Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier (4:13)
I want to bring You all that is in my heart
I want to bring You my everything
But I've failed You so many times
How can I stand here before You
When I begin to steal what only belongs to You
I am able to bring You nothing that isn't already Yours
I am so ashamed of what I ever called my own
Take what I have, take these broken remains
What can I give You that You don't already deserve
You laid down Your life when I refused to give mine
