Now, I realize …

“Now, I realize I am nothing but bone made from dust
Someone learning to love like You do
Eternally, always true.
I want to be nothing more than a man wholly Yours
A beloved son, one who You hold close to Your heart
Eternally, never apart”
-from “Made From Dust” by Ivoryline.

Song “Return” by artist NYVES, qwith lyrics.

Song: Return.
Artist: NYVES.

Lyrics:
“Where do you go?
I’ve seen you wander off alone
Into the cold
The darkness overtakes you whole
I wanna know
Are you still the one who’s in control?
Out on your own
When you feel it caving in, come home

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Are you the same?
I can see your permanence decay
Don’t be afraid
Every trial is a chance to change

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return”

Song “Vices” by artist Dead Poetic, with lyrics.

Artist: Dead Poetic.
Song: Vices.

LYRICS:
Feeling cold, feeling empty. Set the stage, where you want me.
And this crowd right before me doesn’t care that I’m dying.
And the audience stands with their eyes fixed on the preconceived version of me.
I’m so betrayed by your hopes, but I will not hide myself for your peace of mind.

Oh, but Child. I’ve got Vices like any other man.

Raise a boy to a cynic. Take his love, and then let it turn into something passionate.
Something sick, something rabid.
And I vent to keep myself from caving. I don’t hate you, I just hate where I’m heading.
I’m left here asking, when did I trade in my bleeding heart for a selfish win?

Oh, but Mother. I’ve got Vices like any other man.
Vices that you’re not used to. Vices that’ll make you think less of me.

Leave me numb. Leave me jaded. She’s a dream, I just play dead.
I’ve been blessed, I’ve been hated. She’s the constant, and I’m her addict.
She’s the only peace in this world, uneasy.
While I bite my tongue to keep from breaking the heart that I’ve spent my whole life seeking.
The only heart I’ve ever needed.

Oh, but Lover. I’ve got Vices like any other man.
Vices that you’re not used to. Vices that’ll make you think…
Oh, but Lover. I’ve got Vices like any other man.
Vices that you’re not used to. Vices that’ll make you think less of me. Less of me.

Feeling cold, feeling empty. I am low, unworthy.
Bleed the God. Bleed the blessing. Like a vulture feasting.
I’ll exist as if I don’t feel conviction of my ignorance to my perfect prison.
But I feel the stabs on my wrists and ankles every time I try…

To forget you. To forget you.

Oh, but Jesus. I’ve got Vices like any other man.
Vices that you’re so used to. Vices that won’t make you think less of me”
