the old man

for years i had learned to hold him down
swore i would never bring him around

dug a big hole and threw him in 
never looked back , a new life had begun

gonna live right for you , and the kingdom that i knew 
but on that day , just like any other day

woke up to the fleeting thought 
of how it used to be , got cought up in the same old guy

the ground was breached , the ole man cried 
free at last , i bought the lie

for it was the time my soul would die
and now the old man sighed 

i have freely given into this guy 
who was so wrong that it felt alright

and now he is taken over 
my light is fading slower

in the glow of my redeemer
seems all is lost , from a pit i was tossed

as i looked at this rockey bottom 
i realize that i have not forgotten
the creator of the heavens and the earth
by your hand you lift me up

it was you who never gave up
when i thirst you gave me your cup

and i say i need you now 
on my knees i fall apart 

from this point i make a start
to forgive myself and bury the old man again
with you i finally make my stand
so when he lifts his old guy head 

breach the ground of the dead 
it is you i will lean on

for the old man was here
now he is gone 

i am free
