I am the only one to blame for this -- somehow it all ends up the same; soaring on the wings of selfish pride, I flew too high and like Icuarus I collide with a world I try so hard to leave behind; to rid myself of all but love to give and die…

…To turn away and not become another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves more deeply than the oceans, more abundant than the tears of a world embracing every heartache

Can I be the one to sacrifice, or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow?

Take my world apart -- I am on my knees. Take my world apart -- broken on my knees…

…Said and done I stand alone amongst remains of a life I should not own. It takes all I am to believe in the mercy that covers me

Did you really have to die for me? All I am for all you are ‘cause what I need and what I believe are worlds apart – and I pray

Take my world apart -- I am on my knees. Take my world apart -- broken on my knees…

I look beyond the empty cross forgetting what my life has cost and wipe away the crimson stains and dull the nails that still remain. More and more I need you now, I owe you more each passing hour - battles between grace and pride I gave up not so long ago. So steal my heart and take the pain; wash my feet and cleanse my pride; take the selfish, take the weak, and all the things I cannot hide. Take the beauty, take my tears -- my sin soaked heart, make it yours. Take my world all apart - take it now, take it now. And serve the ones that I despise, speak the words I can't deny, watch the world I used to love fall to dust and blow away.

I look beyond the empty cross, forgetting what my life has cost and wipe away the crimson stains and dull the nails that still remain. Take my beauty, take my tears – my sin soaked heart, make it yours. All the things I cannot hide. Take the beauty, take my tears take my world apart, take my world apart…

I pray, I pray, I pray -- take my world apart…. This world apart!
