Story

It's a song about redemption. It's about the willingness to change your life but reverting back to what you want to change away from - it can't be helped. That's just the way it is. But there's hope. "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Jn 8:32

Lyrics

Four hundred miles... and I can not see the light. Yes, I'm driving in sin. I live in chains looking for my pride; My soul a beggar from within. Lay me down. No. I’ll cross the street. And I’ll turn around. Maybe I’ll toss in my grief; Waiting for the truth to set me free. Turn my back and press against the wall; My eyes captive all the same. Cupping my hands as the testament calls— A moth drawn by the flame. Lay me down. No. I’ll cross the street. And I’ll turn around. Maybe I’ll toss in my grief; Waiting for the truth to set me free. To say I'm tired is to grossly understate. Not so evasive is the truth. Chasing the light is an endeavor that drains. Set still and truth comes to you. Lay me down. No. I’ll cross the street. And I’ll turn around. Maybe I’ll toss in my grief; Waiting for the truth to set me free.
