"STATE I'M IN"

Verse 1
Sometimes it seems this stone-cold world
Would love to see the last of me.-
I tried so hard, and I failed so bad with every opportunity.
-I bet you now that these four walls
Conspire to close in on me.
-The windows, ceiling, doors and halls
They breathe a lack of sympathy.
-And so I, I lean on this
Injected plastic fortitude;
-Though its seeming promised bliss
Leads to aching solitude,
Woah, solitude! Yeah, yeah!

Chorus 1
And I feel the fires come up, raging within-
Can't control the state I'm in!
Jumping at shadows, am I going insane?
Lord, don't leave me alone with this pain!

Verse 2
And now it seems I'm at the end,
But Jesus, can I turn to You?
-Somehow, please, could I call You "Friend"?
I need someone to hold on to.
-Quench these fires of pain that burn;
You'll see me change my attitude.
-And all these aching groans will turn
To humble sounds of gratitude,
Woah, gratitude! Yeah, yeah!

Chorus 2
'Round me the night seems gloomy and strange,
And it seems too late to change! Lost in the darkness,
My spirit in pain, help me, please ,help me again!

Chorus 3
And I feel the fires come up, raging within-
I can't control this state I'm in!
Jumping at shadows, am I going insane?
Please don't leave me alone with this pain!
Jesus, help me to change. [Help me to change.]
Won't You help me to change?
Please, don't leave me alone with this pain!
