Skillet Eating Me Away

It’s eating me away

I said to God

It’s rotting in my mind

It’s like a cancer

Is there anything, anything at all to numb the nothingness

I need a reason to breathe

It’s eating me away

Yeah, yeah….

It’s eating me away

It nibbles at my brain

The question of my existence

And the matter of pain

I shake my fist, I shake my fist

At the cosmos and my insignificance

I need a reason to breathe

It’s eating me away

[CHORUS:]

Save me from my rage

And my humanity

I’m more nothing than being

Is this my legacy

Feel it eating me away

Yeah, yeah…..

All that I am, all that I want, all that I lack

Come on and save me

All that I am, all that I want, all that I lack

Come on and save me

[CHORUS]

All that I am, all that I want, all that I lack

Come on and save me

All that I am, all that I want, all that I lack

Come on and save me

It’s eating me away

[CHORUS]

Skillet Imperfection

You’re worth so much

It’ll never be enough

To see what you have to give

How beautiful you are

Yet seem so far from everything

You’re wanting to be

You’re wanting to be

Tears falling down again

Tears falling down

You fall to your knees

You beg, you plead

Can I be somebody else

For all the times I hate myself?

Your failures devour your heart

In every hour, you’re drowning

In your imperfection

You mean so much

That heaven would touch

The face of humankind for you

How special you are

Revel in your day

You’re fearfully and wonderfully made

You’re wonderfully made

Tears falling down again

Come let the healing begin

You fall to your knees

You beg, you plead

Can I be somebody else

For all the times I hate myself?

Your failures devour your heart

In every hour, you’re drowning

In your imperfection

You’re worth so much

So easily crushed

Wanna be like everyone else

No one escapes

Every breath we take

Dealing with our own skeletons, skeletons

You fall to your knees

You beg, you plead

Can I be somebody else

For all the times I hate myself?

Your failures devour your heart

In every hour, you’re drowning

In your imperfection

Won’t you believe, yeah

Won’t you believe, yeah

All the things I see in you

You’re not the only one

You’re not the only one

Drowning in imperfection

Falling Down

As I fall to sleep

My heart grows cold

Will you be there when I’m falling down

Skillet Hey You, I Love Your Soul

Am I a man who knows how to love

When you hate what you fear the most

I’ll wash your feet as you spit in my face

Hey you, I love your soul

I’m going love you when you hate

You can’t outrun or escape this liquid

My life poured out like water

I’m gonna drown you with maddening forgiveness

Hey you, I love your soul

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

Love doesn’t care to receive what it gives

Bleeding compassion to extreme

Love stretches out to die for its enemies

Hey you, I love your soul

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

No bounds on the deep, no bounds on the wide

Am I deep enough to love your soul

God I want to swim in the deep of You

God in You I’m strong enough,

Strong enough, strong enough

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

No bounds on the deep, no bounds on the wide

Am I deep enough to love your soul

Skillet Your Love (Keeps Me Alive)

I walk through the desert, hide from the sun

All that I desire is You

Occasional water cools my thirst

All I that I desire is You

I don’t want to live dying on the inside

I breathe so softly, don’t feel too content

Apathy whispers and makes me think

Am I just another man whose time went fast

What does it take to be called great

I don’t want to live dying on the inside

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

I cannot be silent, I­m crying out

My soul is cold, my heart is numb

I break from my old self and step into You

You complete what was never enough

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

Keeps me alive with the strength to speak

This generation is dying to see

Who You are and how You free

Come Lord Jesus come

I’ve seen lots of dead men walking around

Make my heart alive

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

Skillet Don’t Wake Me

I went to bed I was thinking about you

Ain’t the same since I’m living without you

All the memories are getting colder

All the things that I wanna do over

Went to bed I was thinking about you

I wanna talk and laugh like we used to

When I see you in my dreams at night

It’s so real but it’s in my mind

[Pre:]

And now

I guess

This is as good as it gets

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

I went to bed I was thinking about you

And how it felt when I finally found you

It’s like a movie playing over in my head

Don’t wanna look ’cause i know how it ends

All the words that I said that I wouldn’t say

All the promises I made that I wouldn’t break

It’s last call, last song, last dance

‘Cause I can’t get you back, can’t get a second chance

And now, I guess

This is as good as it gets

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

Don’t wake me

We’re together just you and me

Don’t wake me

‘Cause we’re happy like we used to be

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna be alone.

[Bridge:]

These dreams of you keep on growing stronger

It ain’t a lot but it’s all I have

Nothing to do but keep sleeping longer

Don’t wanna stop cause I want you back

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

Don’t wake me

We’re together just you and me

Don’t wake me

‘Cause we’re happy like we used to be

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna be alone.

I went to bed I was thinking about you

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

It ain’t the same since I’m living without you.

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna wake up.

Skillet The Last Night

You come to me with scars on your wrist

You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this

I just came to say goodbye

I didn’t want you to see me cry, I’m fine

But I know it’s a lie.

[Chorus:]

This is the last night you’ll spend alone

Look me in the eyes so I know you know

I’m everywhere you want me to be.

The last night you’ll spend alone,

I’ll wrap you in my arms and I won’t let go,

I’m everything you need me to be.

Your parents say everything is your fault

But they don’t know you like I know you they don’t know you at all

I’m so sick of when they say

It’s just a phase, you’ll be o.k. you’re fine

But I know it’s a lie.

[Chorus]

The last night away from me

[Bridge:]

The night is so long when everything’s wrong

If you give me your hand I will help you hold on

Tonight,

Tonight.

[Chorus]

I won’t let you say goodbye,

I’ll be your reason why.

The last night away from me,

Away from me.

Skillet Energy

Oh

Power is another word that I use to describe You

Your mighty winds come in and blow me away

Frightening, coming at me like lightning

It’s You that I fear, yeah, yeah

I shake whenever You speak my name

And I’m surrounded

You overpower me

You’re the sun and rain, you’re a hurricane

You’re an enigma wrapped in a mystery

Everywhere I go, I can’t escape Your energy

Oh

You defy time

I see You in everything in fire and wind and rain

You are what I crave

You set me free I want to be Your slave

And I’m surrounded

You overpower me

You are everything I cannot see and can’t explain

You’re an enigma wrapped in a mystery
