I Still Need To Be Reminded

Sometimes I cannot forgive
And these days mercy cuts so deep
If the world was how it should be
Maybe I could get some sleep
While I lay, I dream we’re better
Scales were gone and faces light
When we wake, we hate our brother
We still move to hurt each other
Sometimes I can close my eyes
And all the fear that keeps me silent
Falls below my heavy breathing

What makes me so badly bent?
We all have a chance to murder
We all feel the need for wonder
We still want to be reminded
That the pain is worth the thunder

Sometimes when I lose my grip
I wonder what to make of heaven
All the times I thought to reach up
All the times I had to give
Babies underneath their beds
Hospitals that cannot treat
All the wounds that money causes
All the comforts of cathedrals
All the cries of thirsty children
This is our inheritance

All the rage of watching mothers
This is our greatest offense

Oh my God
Oh my God
Oh my God

[Oh My God – Jars of Clay]

  1. good lyrics. where do you find all these cool bands? I feel a bit uncool for not really knowing who they are (sometimes I pretend I do by casually nodding if someone it to mention them)

  2. I just have a general love of music… Jars of Clay have been a favourite for a long time, I love their more chilled-out vibe. Shawn bought me a couple of albums recently, including this one (Thanks Shawn!), and I am loving this song… it’s totally haunting me.
