Intro

Now I have to set myself free

From the embrace that smothers me.

Verse 1

Strangling my voice of reason,

Clouding my lines of vision,

With the help of words of prophets

That darken the sky post sunset.

Pre chorus 1

Don't dare do this,

For it's a sin.

But I believe

In just one thing-

Chorus

A real God only wants to see

That His creations are happy.

So I have to set myself free

From the embrace that smothers me.

Choir

Standing alone in a far off land,

With our feet buried deep in the sand,

Let our dimmed lights lend a helping hand

To the souls that are still lost at sea,

Praying for liberation, mercy,

From this embrace we must all break free.

Verse 2

Lecturing on right and wrong,

Acting as if we belong

In the depths of Hell for mistakes

Which only make our own hearts ache.

Pre chorus 2

Please your God with

Sweet sacrifice.

I don't think He

Feeds on our cries.

Chorus

A real God only wants to see

That we treat each other kindly.

So I have to set myself free

From the embrace that smothers me.

Bridge

[Choir

Open your eyes and,

Open your heart.

Lend a helping hand,

Just play your part.]

Age old rituals and customs,

Worn out weary philosophy.

How long do you think I'll stay locked

In the embrace that smothers me?

[Choir

Open your eyes and,

Open your heart.

Lend a helping hand,

Just play your part.]

You preach what you claim is divine,

Without remorse or empathy.

How long do you think I'll stay locked

In the embrace that smothers me?

Choir

Standing alone in a far off land,

With our feet buried deep in the sand,

Let our dimmed lights lend a helping hand

To the souls that are still lost at sea,

Praying for liberation, mercy,

From this embrace we must all break free.

Chorus

A real God only wants to see

That His creations are happy.

And a real God only wants to see

That we treat each other kindly.

So I have to set myself free

From the embrace that smothers me.

Now I have to set myself free

From the embrace that smothers me.
