Breathing To Death – Lecrae

13 02 2009


One of my favorites right now.


It’s like I’m tired of life/ Lord i’m wrong why I cant get right/ And when it’s dark why I cant get light/ eh why it cant 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 sposed to be your people I’m sposed to see your sequal/ I said I’ll never leave you/ But I’m so left i aint right Lord I’m sleeping with death/man, I am cheating with death/ am I deaf Its like I don’t hear you/ I say that I’m a Christian but it’s like I don’t fear you/ I’m on a selfish island and 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/Lord I deserve to burn

Hook: Repeat 2x
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

I’m fellin’ skitzophrenic / maybe I ain’t saved cause i gotta get high just to block out all the pain/ seen death, seen hurt seen a whole lotta thangs/ instead of running from it I’m running away from change/ it’s like I’m outside in the ice cold weather/the rains 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 truths make me better/ I’d rather eat flies and maggots instead of bread/ and its killing me slow but i cant 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/ And 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 cant explain/ how can you love this sinner whose desecrated your name/Lord I deserve the flames

Hook: 2x

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 the days are evil and only you are Good/ I’ve come to this conclusion I would like to change cause all the worlds money and fame cannot sustain/ I know that i should turn but thats the hardest thang/ cause do I really feel that havin’ Jesus is my gain/ the world is so tempting/ Satan is a beast/ he hypnotizes my eyes 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 here is you/ help me turn away from sin/ Lord 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/Lord let me take your hand
