Every night I stare into the darkness
I search the sky looking for a sign
Some undeniable inspiration from Jesus
But each night I retire
Blind, unknowing and tired
Of the silence I endure each day from God

Unready, unright
Am I really unsound
In sackcloth and ashes
Prostrate on the ground
I just want some answers
I just want to know what I'm bound to

A band of angels falls into formation
Their holy breath behind their virgin horns
But as they play my ears can hear no music
So sad that I could cry
With every assurance denied
I can't understand this silence unbroken from God


from WITNESS, released October 20, 2016
