Understanding

lyrics

Understanding

Underneath the placid surface
An undertow ravages the peace I’ve found inside
I cannot hide from it any longer
It will swallow me whole
So I must drag it out of the darkness
And into the light
I know better than to think this is right
To let this torture me where it lies

Understanding what this is
I must open the gate
I must give it a name
I must look at its face
And accept the truth
I am not yet ok
Lived too long with this rain
And only me to blame

Many times I thought I’d faced it
But the damage was vast
Moving aside is not past
I must go through the center of this
Looking back, I only got out
I never confronted the way I sabotaged myself
It’s easy to focus on salvation, not much else

Understanding what this is
I must open the gate
I must give it a name
I must look at its face
And accept the truth
I am not yet ok
Lived too long with this rain
And only me to blame
