This is a song
about letting go
about breaking down
and giving ourselves over to
Jesus Christ

'I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
flew too high
and like Icaharus I collide

'In a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
To give and die

'To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
More deeply than the oceans
More abundant than the tears
Of a world embracing every heartache

'Can I be the one to sacrifice?
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow?

'Take my world apart
I am on my knees
Take my world apart
Broken on my knees

'All said and done I stand alone
Amongst remains of a life I should not own
It takes all I am to believe
In the mercy that covers me

'Did you really have to die for me?
All I am for all you are
cos' what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

'Take my world apart
I am on my knees
Take my world apart
Broken on my knees

I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
Wipe away the crimson stains
That hold the nails that still remain
More and more I need you now
I owe you more each passing hour
Battles between grace and pride
Gave up not so long ago
So steal my heart and take my pain
Wash my feet and cleanse my pride
Take this selfish dirt away
All the things I cannot hide
Take my beauty take my tears
Sin and soul its yours
Take my world apart
Take it now, take it now
Serve the ones that I despise
Speak the words I can't deny

I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
Wipe away the crimson stains
That hold the nails that still remain
Take my beauty take my tears
Sin and soul heart its yours

All the things I cannot hide
Take my beauty take my tears

Take my world apart.. Take my world apart

Its worlds apart.'
