Forsaken

Skillet - Collide © 2003


I recall going madly in love with you
And I remember this
How could I forget?
Regret is a needle
In my neck
Itís slowly filling me
With poison
Spreading to my chest

Take my pain and numb me from this

Why do I have to beg
When all thatís left
Is a memory
Forsaken (2x)

I recall pledging my sole devotion to you
It reminds me how
Now Iím on my knees
My guilt consumes
Lost the will in me
Wasting away before you
Hold me closer please

Take my pain and numb me from this

Why do I have to beg
When all thatís left
Is a memory
Forsaken (2x)
 
Yeah, yeah, yeah
You break me

Forsake
You break me (2x)

Youíre breaking me

I recall going madly in love with you
And I remember thisÖ Tell me

Why do I have to beg
When all thatís left
Is a memory
Forsaken (2x)

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Forsaken
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Tell me why, why, why, why

Open Wounds

Skillet - Collide © 2003


In the dark with the music on
Wishing I was somewhere else
Taking all your anger out on me, somebody help
I would rather rot alone
Then spend a minute with you
I'm gone, I'm gone

And you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

(Chorus)How could you, how could you,
how could you hate me?
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you, how could you love me?
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?

Downstairs the enemy sleeps
Leaving the TV on
Watching all the dreams we had turn into static
Doesn't matter what I do
Nothing's gonna change
I'm never good enough

And you can't stop me from falling apart'
Cause my self-destruction is all your fault

(Chorus)

Tell me why you broke me down and
betrayed my trust in youI'm not giving up,
giving in when will this war end?
When will it end?

You can't stop me from falling apart (3X)
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault.

(Chorus)

A Little More

Skillet - Collide © 2003

Love is all around you now
So take a hold
Hidden in our words
It sometimes ainít enough
Donít suffocate day after day
Itís building up
Cause when youíre feeling weak
You know Iím strong enough

Just one more day
One more day

Oh, let the world crash
Love can take it
Oh, let the world come crashing down
Oh, let the world crash
Love can take it
Love can take a little
Love can give a little more

Love is indestructible
So take a hold
Sometimes hard to find
A reason good enough
Iíll stand beside you
Never leave through it all
And faith will bring a way
To the impossible

Just one more day
One more day

Oh, let the world crash
Love can take it
Oh, let the world come crashing down
Oh, let the world crash
Love can take it
Love can take a little
Love can give a little more

You can find me
You can find me
You can find me anywhere
Take a look over your shoulder
Iíll be standing there
Standing there

Love is all around you now
So take a hold
And faith will bring a way
To the impossible

Just one more day
(You can find me, You can find me)
One more day
(You can find me anywhere) (2x)

Let the world crash
Love can take it
Oh, let the world come crashing down
Oh, let the world crash

Love can take a little
Love can take a little

Love can give a little more

My Obsession

Skillet - Collide © 2003

Your touch, your ways
Leave me dumb without reason
Your love, my cage
My prison so pleasing
I spend my days
Tangled in thoughts of you
Stuck in this place
Resigned to be your fool

I thirst no longer
Drenching my soul
Pour out like water

Youíre my only infatuation
Donít leave me stranded
In my obsession
My purpose, my possession
Live and die in my obsession
My obsession

Oh

Come down to me
Donít ever say that itís over
I kiss your feet
Worship the air you breathe
Your love, my gift
You go and I will follow
My dream, my wish
Donít leave me here so helpless

I thirst no longer
Drenching my soul
Pour out like water

Youíre my only infatuation
Donít leave me stranded
In my obsession
My purpose, my possession
Live and die in my obsession
My obsession

Am I a lunatic?
Iím going crazy
For just a word from
For just a touch from you

And Iím exploding like chemicals
Iím going crazy, canít get enough (2x)

I thirst no longer
I thirst, yeah
Drenching my soul
Drenching, oh

I thirst no longer
Drenching my soul
Pour out like water

Youíre my only infatuation
Donít leave me stranded
In my obsession
My purpose, my possession
Live and die in my obsession
Oh, oh, oh, my obsession
Oh, oh, oh, my obsession
My obsession

Collide

Skillet - Collide © 2003


We have fallen
We have fallen again tonight
Where do we go from here
When theyíre tearing down our lives?
When all they want is
When all they want is
For us to live in fear
How long can we hold on?
Can we hold on?
Hold on

Thereís something deep inside
That keeps my faith alive
When all you can do
Is hide from the fear
Thatís deep inside of you
Something, something, something
Something, something, something
To hold me close when I donít know
Thereís something deep inside
That keeps my faith alive

We are healing
But itís killing us inside
Can we take a chance?
When faith and fear collide
We can make it
Step out and take it
We canít live feeling so numb
How long can we hold on?
Can we hold on?
Hold on

Thereís something deep inside
That keeps my faith alive
When all you can do
Is hide from the fear
Thatís deep inside of you
Something, something, something
Something, something, something
To hold me close when I donít know
Thereís something deep inside
That keeps my faith alive (2x)

Fingernails

Skillet - Collide © 2003


Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails
Under my fingernails

Iím empty, lonely, and accused
Accused without a word
My fingernails are chipping down
From clawing in the dirt
Iím so lost, lost and confused
I threw it all away
How can I be beautiful
When I am so afraid

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails
All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails

I watched it all slip through my hands
My brokenness revealed
Iím so proud, Iím so proud
Iím crying to be filled
Iím killing, destroying the plague
Thatís killing me away
Iíve got to live, Iíve got to love
Like I am unafraid

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails (2x)

All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails

Iím wasting, wasting every moment
I want to be tasting
Tasting every moment with you
Iím suffering, Iím bleeding, on my knees
Whoís going to save me?
Suffering, bleeding
Save me from this pit of frailty

Never reaching what I want to reach
Never being who I want to be
Blaming me when I fall and fail
All my dreams splintering
Under my fingernails (2x)

All my dreams out of reach
Under my fingernails

Never reaching me

Imperfection

Skillet - Collide © 2003


Youíre worth so much
Itíll never be enough
To see what you have to give
How beautiful you are
Yet seem so far from everything
Youíre wanting to be
Youíre wanting to be

Tears falling down again
Tears falling down

You fall to your knees
You beg, you plead
Can I be somebody else
For all the times I hate myself?
Your failures devour your heart
In every hour, youíre drowning
In your imperfection

You mean so much
That heaven would touch
The face of humankind for you
How special you are
Revel in your day
Youíre fearfully and wonderfully made
Youíre wonderfully made

Tears falling down again
Come let the healing begin

You fall to your knees
You beg, you plead
Can I be somebody else
For all the times I hate myself?
Your failures devour your heart
In every hour, youíre drowning
In your imperfection

Youíre worth so much
So easily crushed
Wanna be like everyone else
No one escapes
Every breath we take
Dealing with our own skeletons, skeletons

You fall to your knees
You beg, you plead
Can I be somebody else
For all the times I hate myself?
Your failures devour your heart
In every hour, youíre drowning
In your imperfection

Wonít you believe, yeah
Wonít you believe, yeah
All the things I see in you

Youíre not the only one
Youíre not the only one
Drowning in imperfection

When I feel you close to me
Itís easy to believe
To the depths and back again
To find that Iím still needing
Feel the fear dissipate
When you are everything you are
Feel my soul come awake
You carry me away

When I hurt, when I bleed
Youíre holding me
Feel you scratching at the surface
Under my skin (2x)

Oh, under my skin (2x)

Oh the sweet serenity
Iím beautifully addicted
You are more than I can take
I crave you undiluted
You calm the ache, I come awake
When you are everything you are
Feel the fear dissipate
You carry me away

When I hurt, when I bleed
Youíre holding me
Feel you scratching at the surface
Under my skin (2x)

Oh, under my skin (2x)

Oh, yeah

Could I be lost
Could I disappear
Could I be lost
Would you find me here?
Could I be lost in a secret place?
Could I rest in the shadow of your face

Oh the sweet
(Could I be lost, could I disapper?)
Serenity
(Could I be lost, would you find me here?)
Beautifully
(Could I be lost in a secret place?)
A part of me
(Could I rest in the shadow of your face?)

When I hurt, when I bleed
Youíre holding me
Feel you scratching at the surface
Under my skin (2x)

Oh, under my skin (4x)

Oh
 
Power is another word that I use to describe You
Your mighty winds come in and blow me away
Frightening, coming at me like lightning
It's You that I fear, yeah, yeah
I shake whenever You speak my name
 
And I'm surrounded
You overpower me
 
You're a silent rage, you're a hurricane
You are everything I cannot see and can't explain
You're an enigma wrapped in a mystery
Everywhere I go, I can't escape Your energy
 
Oh
 
Divine is a reality that You define
You defy time
I see You in everything in fire and wind and rain
Captured is just the word to capture how I feel when I still
You are what I crave
You set me free I want to be Your slave
 
And I'm surrounded
You overpower me
 
You're a silent rage, you're a hurricane
You are everything I cannot see and can't explain
You're an enigma wrapped in a mystery
Everywhere I go, I can't escape Your energy
 
I can't escape Your energy (8x)
 
Oh
 
Power is another word that I use to describe You

I canít escape it
I canít escape, no, no, no, no, etcÖ
Everywhere I go, I canít escape Your energy

Cycle Down

Skillet - Collide © 2003

	  
Crashing, covered with debris
Dwelling in my own pity
Cry like I have not
Dig like I had not
I start to claw
Gotta get outta here
I've got to, gotta get out
 
I am, I am, I am on a higher ground
You are, You are my cure from the cycle down (2x)
 
Sinking in a sea of self
Deception never sold so well
Regret like I have not
Pain like I don't want
I start to claw
Gotta get outta here
I've got to, gotta get out
 
I am, I am, I am on a higher ground
You are, You are my cure from the cycle down (2x)
 
Down (3x)
 
I'm so cold and I wonder
How'd I make it this long without You
Pull me out, out from under
On the cycle back to You
 
I am, I am, I am on a higher ground
You are, You are my cure from the cycle down (2x)
 
Down (3x)
