calling of souls

I'm searching for a hero that i cannot find
I'm searching for a hero outside my mind
What was once lost in the seas of deception 
Swimming in the pool of Godly anticipation
Can now be found in the water of a priest
Wearing the wings of an angel once deceased

He called me once to come to him
I couldn't bring myself to answer him
Why would i choose him out of them all
Why this particular call

I look up to the sky trying to find 
What people tell me he will never hide
The grace of God is what they keep telling me
Will be pulling and tugging ABUNDANTLY
On the corners of soul, pulling on the fragile strings of happiness
Finding the marvelous bliss I'll never discover one way or another

I use to feel my soul starting to dissolve in the toxic waste i called a life
That nuclear diaster was consuming my soul
Eating it up without a sound
I could hardly feel it slipping away, till the skies opened 
And with it came that purifying rain, the rain unlike water that washed away the pain

The deep feeling of a call unlike any other
Calling it to come into the love
Calling it to come into the laughter
Calling it to reintroduce itself as a new and refreshened vessel of hope

He called me once to come to him
I couldn't bring myself to answer him
That previous call i could have listened 
That big brick wall i could have demolished
What is it about the angels that he sent for my soul 
They shine so brightly with their airtight hold

Believe me when i tell you you will never feel 
The blistering heat nor the paralising cold
The calling of this soul was never easy 
The toughest job the big guy had to deal
The biggest deal he had to attentively seal

The soul the soul felt a great sense of peace in its calling 
Because it was no longer ignoring
Ignoring the peace 
Ignoring the love
Ignoring the peaceful hold of the Gods

He called me once to come to him
I couldn't bring myself to answer him 
The calling of my soul that made my whole entire being feel whole
That's the day the calling of souls began
