Track Name: The Cold
Let your plans unfold,
Cuz I'm sleeping in a cold world without a blanket over my life.
Frigid strife creeping over seemingly endless night.
I watched the sun set with no promise of return.
Purples, reds and pinks all burned in their visual interpretation of a swan song.
I waved goodbye far past my line of sight.
The horizon's beautiful, fading light...It's no stranger to spite. I swear it's knowingly underlining my current and echoing plight.
The cold.
But I guess by definition the lack of warmth.
It's almost funny how my core temperature's a steady 98.6
Though, warm-blooded as I am, I'm craving a house of bricks with a fireplace burning sticks.
It's a bad joke reminding me that my humanity alone isn't enough to conquer every lie that can be sold.
I tried that on my own, but look where it got me...lost and the cold.
So let your plans unfold.
Let your plans unfold.
Look into this void and fill it with your voice,
Breathe light into this darkness, this faint abyss of loneliness.
With whatever words you spoke warmth into the sun, speak into our hearts, Lord. One by one.
Ignite us like a light bulb screwed in and switched on, with the electricity of your love and the lyrics of your song
Heard 'round the world but never fully understood, because you're better than our best and most of all because you said you would.
Let that promise unfold.
I counted the cost way before I got lost and came up short and learned therefore that you're the only one who can afford to make good on this promise.
So let your plans unfold like a blanket over a baby; helpless but comfortable so long as they recognize confidence in the one holding them.
Confidence...just another thing this world has until we realize we don't. Like waking up from a dream that I'm praying to stay but it just won't.
So reluctantly, I open my eyes for the first this world so cold.
Let your plans unfold.
