<a name="#one"> cleansing the wound </a>

maybe i'll bleed this cut a little
and let the impurity fall out
the flesh ripped apart, i stare at the wound
filled with dirt and grime
my heart is bleeding today

i sit and wonder how long it will take
for the gash to be clean
but as i sit here blood simply oozes out methodically
nothing changes
nothing's clean
rather the infection floods my body
my heart is bleeding today

nothing is cleaned by my complacency
nothing is cleaned by me
so cleanse the wound
with water and life
i'm cold now
and sickness permeates my soul
but Your water brings life
Your water will clean me again

quietly he sits in shame

<a name="#three"> society's slave </a>

diluted dreams, calloused heart
everything is black and gray now
society's slave, the people's puppet

<a name="#five"> Open Up </a>

quiet now
i've hushed it up
i silence my outward heart
while inwardly everything's a mess
nothing's right
and i'm starving here
but nobody knows
and i want You to see me

open up
everything within me
all is disclosed
all is laid bare
cover imperfections
with perfect grace
and make me new
make me new

take the secret
battles and insecurities
and heal my heart
wash the blood-stained walls and
tattered garments that hang in forgotten closets
worn when i'm alone to agonize
but nobody knows
and i want You to see me

open up
everything within me
all is disclosed
all is laid bare
cover imperfections
with perfect grace
and make me new
make me new

make me new
God, i need You
i know You hear me
thank You
