Alexander (Song I)

Alexander (Song I)

Verse 1, part 1
Living life unfulfilled
Trying to gain satisfaction in the ways of the world
Using other people to get what I've grown to need
Is there no peace for me?
I started out
Enjoying, but I've come to see I'm trapped now
So much more sinful than everyone else
I can't escape myself

Verse 1, part 2
So I guess I'll sink deeper into this mess
Because I'm too weak to take an upward step

Chorus
It started out as just a one-time thing
But now I can't find happiness in anything
I want to run, but addictions hold me so tight
Indulgence turned to habit, turned to way of life
And now I'm waiting for something to give
I want to die, because this is no way to live

Verse 2, part 1
Can't train my eyes
To keep looking ahead, fixed on what is right
Everytime I try to clean up my act
Something happens, and I go straight back

Verse 2, part 2
So I've learned I can only regress
Because I'm too weak to take an upward step

Chorus
It started out as just a one-time thing
But now I can't find happiness in anything
I want to run, but addictions hold me so tight
Indulgence turned to habit, turned to way of life
And now I'm waiting for something to give
I want to die, because this is no way to live

Bridge
My guilt is so great, I cannot even lift my head
But I cannot end my life, for I know what happens after death
I have convinced myself that God cannot forgive
Someone whose sin describes the way that they live
My life is out of hand, I cannot control it
I face sin now, I want to refuse - but I'm too weak to stop this

Chorus
It started out as just a one-time thing
But now I can't find happiness in anything
I want to run, but addictions hold me so tight
Indulgence turned to habit, turned to way of life
And now I'm waiting for something to give
I want to die, because this is no way to live

Ending
My life is out of hand, I cannot control it
I face sin now, I want to refuse - but I'm too weak to stop this

The End
