Text písně Phoenix

So this is what I become
When You leave me to myself
A burned up, hollow, angry, empty shell
An actor on a barren stage
An even-keel with unchanneled rage
Sinking deeper into hell

Bind me to You
Piece me straight through
Consume me with Your fire
Ravage my heart
Tear me clean apart
And still be my desire

As I descend it starts again

Sliding down, spiraling
Grasping on the breath of corruption
Fighting undertow
Holding on, realizing
My own hopeless helplessness finally letting go

All is madness
As the flames engulf me
Oblivion, refining fire
Making ashes of this life
Burn, fire, burn
Clean this sorry temple
Restore Your holy name
In the onslaught of Your love

And now, as gradual as the fall
The dawn of hope, the brillian sun
Sending all the shadows fleeing
Sweet daylight
A new man rising from the ashes
Clothed in white, bearing a new name
I leave it all behind
And take to flight
