What Matters

What Matters

cutting to the chase
I'm burning life at both ends
and here we go again
a candle in a cold wind
here we go...

It's because of death
that I believe in angels
it's because of saints
that I believe in demons
It's because of dreams
that I believe in hope now
and it's because of life
that I



believe






in

death
yeah I believe in
death

It's because of pain
that I believe in healing
and it's because of fire
that I can feel the ice around
I'd love to thank my fate
cause now I see my choices
And I


will





choose

My life
the light shows me where the dark can-hide
I've watched a Lamb
take the fall for all my pride
now


that





I'm

to-night
the coldest blue reveals the light
here in the dark
comes screaming through the roars of life
here in the pain
comes rushing all my healing
it's taken all of this
just to get me feeling
edge of a knife
won't stop me double-dealing

If I dare look up
I'll see

you


my




friend
I mean satan
the marshal of the cold wind
here I lay so blameless
undamnable...

when I see the sunset
I know that
It'll
rise
a brand new day
screaming not to compromise
what do we gain
if we all live afraid to die

And I believe in waking
some days it hurts to sleep
I feel just like I'm drowning
in this eternal deep
through the cracks blood's begun to seep

it's because of lies
that I believe in truth now
it's because of fakes
that I can see the genuine
I have chosen life
cos that's what I believe in

I believe in God
cause I have danced with satan
I believed in sin
before I called my King of kings


and in the light

I believe in wings
I've done my share of crawling
I'm all about the edge
for the time I've just spent falling
I can hear the voice
cause Christ is always calling
I believe in things
you people never heard of
I believe in life
cause I





believe








in

Hate
it's layered on the outside
I believe in love
it forces in through every lie
coursing through my veins
bleed it out and let this die
now

that



I

And I believe in staying
cause I have seen the sanctified
I believe in floods
cause I have seen the rivers dry
I can let this fade
I have touched the other side

now
that
I'm












I have seen





now I have seen






alive


I have seen

Yeah I

Have

Seen
