Naked In Disgrace

I fell into lust again
And in the deepest parts of me
 there's things I can never unsee
I try to drink away the pain 
But I swear it's driving me insane 
Am I a victim to lust 
Or am I the one with the loaded gun 
That you should never trust 

Is it ok to say that I'm scared
Is it wrong to admit that I know you cared
But when it was all said and done 
I was never there 
I'm a prisoner of my mind 
And the pain inflates with time 
Most nights I wish I never knew existence 
When I try to do what's right 
I fall under the resistance 

I've lost the words to pray
I'm digging up the dirt 
To create my own grave 
I've lost the light of grace 
Laying naked in disgrace 
How can I dream of becoming a better man 
When i can't summon the strength to stand 

Why have I forsaken you 
You say forgive them for they know not what they do
But what if that's just it
What if I know what I do 
Still I seek the road of lies
When I know the truth 
Please tell me why I can't change 
Please I'm begging you 
I'm so tired of living in chains 
I long to know joy
I long to feel peace 
But at the end of the day 
All I know is deceit 
I surrender my all
Please catch me when I fall
