Slit my throat and walk away

How long do you think it will last?
The grass is greener on the other side
But we all know about houses built on sand
You've found more pleasure? Take it, you've earned it
Snap your fingers, you'll get what you want.
Snap your fingers, and you'll snap my neck.

I'm not one for bitterness, but you've left me for dead
In a blackened pit of hell that I will always regret
I'm not one for bitterness but you've left me no choice
This is one feeling I chose, will never fully cease
Turn a blind eye, slit my throat and walk away
Turn a blind eye, slit my throat and walk away

Turn around, shut your eyes, cover your ears
Scream his name and I'm not here.
Walk away, run away, flee like a coward
Drop the knife that runs red, wash your blood stained hands
Block out the guilt you feel from my open wounds.
If you don't see me, my silent death doesn't exist.

Even as rage flows through my veins
I cannot deny the truth: He still loves us both
I have been marked by grace, branded by love,
and will refuse to take joy in the fall of others.
Though blood and tears are my only sustenance,
Desire to spread His love outweighs any amount of hate.

Life is unjust, as is His enduring Love.

O Lord You have searched me and You know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise.

You perceive my thoughts from afar

I praise you, for I am wonderfully and fearfully made.

To the Lord I cry aloud, and He answers me from His holy hill

I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because You sustain me.

I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.

"Because he loves me, I will protect him" says the Lord.

"I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name."

The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life
