I am at war I am at war
When Paul wrote…The things I should do I do not do… but the things I should not do…I do

I understand the battle with my flesh
When my spirit says yes
But my mind won’t let me go
It’s a war zone
But I sit on my throne
I know it’s worth nothing
One day it will all be gone
No use building earthly kingdoms
When one day
I must face the Maker
Of all things

My soul wants what it can’t have
I’m not that brave
This life’s pace
This stupid race
I need to slow down
Instead I push through with my frown
Holding onto a bronze crown
My heart wants what was once young
Now it’s old, tired and weary
Feeling like life’s just getting dreary

I need you
I need you
To understand what I don’t understand

We are all the same
Trying to gain something
Trying to find peace
Speak to me again
For me…to me
And not for anyone else

The soul lays to waste
Feeling strange
Needing something
Out of reach
Out of reach
Out of time
Out of time
Out of tune
Out of tune
People hurt
People love
People chase
After their own things

Be careful don’t stand on those tracks
They may run you down
People hurt
People love
People complicate
Be careful of your heart
Guard it… It says guard it
because it is the well spring of life

I am at war in my mind
Sometimes I am too kind
I am at war in my mind

I don’t want to be left behind

I am at war in my mind

Please be my guide

It’s the devils playground
We will not always be around

I am at war in my mind
Sometimes there’s a divide

Some day there will be no place to hide

So you better survive

If you want to win the prize
