A divide, a painful separation Built by burdens and aberrations Bought with lies and broken dreams Filled with treachery and poisonous things. Crossed by fear, and so fear falls Further pushing the sides apart Adding a layer to an impenetrable wall Furthering darkness's swift-clothed start. We all pass by this same divide We all can't cross, we bide our time Waiting for the tiers to fall the towers that keep up this wall Waiting for someone to build a bridge one that won't collapse beneath our sins Beneath the weight of all we've done those things we can't carry alone We reach out for someone to hold us Someone to help us through again And tell us that he loves us We reach out for the light, the Son. To erase the pain through which we've been. We're waiting when all the while he's crying out for us to hear, Waiting for us to open our eyes and close our mouths and use our ears.
