Illusion of love
Whoâ€™s responsible for this illusion of love?
That would have me forsake perfection bestowed from
This limbo of sorts that iâ€™m languishing of
Cant seem to get clean no matter how hard i scrub
What of my firm foundation?
As i sit in isolation
Devoid of elation, devoid of elation
When last did i offer spontaneous praise or libation?
Is this my lifeâ€™s blood trickling away
That was shed on the cross when my debt was fully paid
As i incur more debt.
Please take it away
I dont want to stray
Or your love betray
My flesh rising up causing me to decay.
Whoâ€™s responsible for this illusory imagery?
My fickle disposition, or satanic trickery?
A test that iâ€™m failing or a victory yet to be?
How could i forsake my constitution so easily?
Lord i ask, i beg i plead
For a change of heart, my head knows itâ€™s you i need
You, and only you
Only your love is true
Only you can bring me through
Only you should i pursue
Itâ€™s not my desire to be untrue
My flesh subdue and my spirit renew.
I put it in your hands.
