Ghost in the Machine Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level MetalMusic
1. Breaking (4:33)
Inhale the smoke, take it in. Hold it in till I choke, here I go again.

Breaking, my addiction is breaking. Hating, my condition I'm hating. Taking, my conviction is taking hold of me. Breaking, never make it if I do it on my own. Breaking, I can't make it if I do it all alone. Breaking, I need you to be there when I'm going down. Breaking, I'm breaking free.

Shoot it into my vein, feel the flow. Till I block out the pain, fallen down so low.

First the man takes a drink. then the drink takes a drink. Then the drink takes the man. Now I understand.
2. Strength (4:54)
All my life I've lived my way. No matter what was said to me. I fought to be a prideful man. Independence in my head too long.

When I am weak I am strong. In my weakness I find true strength. When I am weakest, I am strong for You.

Ostracized I've lived with pain. I've thirst for more than worldly gain. Thorn in my flesh has broken me. My prideful heart's been released for Him.

Flesh and blood, the old nature dies. Shed my skin of this selfish pride. Cast down but not forsaken. I find my strength in life from You.
3. Ghost in the Machine (2:42)
Generations calling, calling from the past. Sin of fathers falling, I will be the last. Reject the former lies, the family ties are torn. Break the thing that curses, the chain remains no more.

Ghost in the machine has no hold on me.

Ghost in the machine, I have been set free.

Bound to do the same, as others have before. Hear it all your life, another cutting thorn. Break it off and crush it, His strength will see you through. Assuring for a better way, for those who follow You.

Genetic code foretelling, what will be my fate. Spiritual abandon, my past forsake. A fortune in my palm, a psychic on the air. false prophets that comsume without a care.
4. Killing Me (3:53)
This poison pervades my flesh, the thing I love and hate. I ask for another chance, I pray it's not too late.

It's killing me, I need Your strength. It's killing me, I need release. It's killing me, please God help me. It's killing me.

Desire holds and breaks my will, it grips ahold of me. Too weak within myself, strength comes when I believe.

Die to myself so Christ might live, I know it's the only way. To break this bondage that I'm in, I know it's not too late. I'm killing me.
5. Through This Pain (5:46)
Darkness fallen around me, I've known of better times. But now I can't breath, lives taken away from this life. Only You can help me when I am weak.

Oh Lord, gotta help me make it through all this pain. Oh Lord, gotta help me make it through all this pain inside.

I need you now to help me with this pain I feel inside. And when my faith is low I need you more to show me where to go in this life.

Blackened skies all around me. A sullen image is all I see. Time's wasting away all this time, only You can lift me when I'm weak.

And I feel You come inside. And I feel You like the rain that washes out my heart, heals all my pain. And you take me by the hand, You are my friend. I cannot understand Your love for me. Oh Lord gotta help me make it through all this pain.
6. Blindsided (3:34)
Should have watched your back, you should have been on guard. You got hit when you least expected, now I see you falling hard.

You've been blindsided. Hit where you live. You've been blindsided by the things you hid in your heart.

Sure of yourself, you had no fear inside. You've been fooled by your own deception, your fall came after your pride.

Didn't count the cost, you stepped across the line. You've been jailed by your own confession, I see you're doing time.
7. Scar (5:40)
Help me help you, in your season of desperation. Take my hand my dear friend, I will lead you home where you belong.

Laying pride aside. I know you've realized just what was lost inside you. I can see it in your eyes, the cost of many lies. I see the scar on your soul.

This love you gave should have been without condition. You search without for needs within. I will lead you home where you belong.

So low you fell in the midst of your conviction. You cry for now from broken vows, God will lead you home where you belong.
8. Alien (3:52)
I don't belong here, stranger to this world. This place is not my home, alien. This land of darkness, I do not know. My streets are paved with gold. I am an alien.

We have traveled on this far, far away from home. With His love to guide our way, we will carry on.

So unfamiliar to these selfish ways. New life is born in me, alien. I see no more crying, I see no more pain. There is a better place, I am an alien.
9. Beyond (4:19)
All I am and all that I will ever be, kill my flesh I'll live for all eternity.

Beyond I fly with eagle's wings. Beyond by hands that eyes have never seen.

Tear me down, try to stop these words of life in me. I'll rise beyond what you imagine me to be.

And I'll fly away with You. And I'll fly far beyond. And I'll fly up to the sky. And I'll fly away with You.

Eyes have not seen all the plans You've made for me. Nor have ears heard all the songs you've born in me.

I'll fly away, away with You. Far beyond, beyond my dreams. Beyond what I could be, far beyond.
10. Without Shelter (4:26)
I was a beggar on the street, a lonely soul. I was lost without a home. And I had nothing that this world has to give. Thought I'd always be alone.

Without shelter, without You. Lost and all alone, trying on my own

I need You now, and I need You forever. And You first loved me, now I'll love you forever.

I was the prideful one, it seemed I had it all, but You've shown me I was poor. And I had everything this world has to give, but inside I need more. Now I love You forever.
