Full of hate and disgrace
Words said behind your back and in your face
A family fallen from grace

And lay it at your feet
I hear you,
I’m here to see you through
Since the day you were born
Together we have been weathering the storm

Living a life not perfect and filled with sin
Mending my heart with bandages...

There is no end in sight
All night long all we do is fight
Not wanting to hear me
And not wanting to hear you
We were hurting each other and had no clue

Generational curses were broken
By your glory my spirit was lifted and awoken
For far to long I have been...
