    Lyrics

    I am the only one to blame for this
    Somehow, it all adds up the same
    Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
    I flew too high
    And like Icarus, I collide
    With a world I try so hard to leave behind
    To rid myself of all but love
    To give and die

    To turn away and not become
    Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
    More deeply than the oceans
    More abundant than the tears
    Of a world embracing every heartache

    Can I be the one to sacrifice
    Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

    (To love you) Take my world apart
    (To need you) I am on my knees
    (To love you) Take my world apart
    (To need you) Broken, on my knees

    All said and done, I stand alone
    Amongst remains of a life I should not own
    It takes all I am to believe
    In the mercy that covers me

    Did you really have to die for me
    For all I am, for all you are
    For what I need and what I believe, are worlds apart, and I pray

    I look beyond the empty cross
    Forgetting what my life has cost
    And wipe away the crimson stains
    And dull the nails that still remain
    More and more I need You now
    I owe You more each passing hour
    Battles between grace and pride
    I gave up not so long ago
    So steal my heart and take the pain
    And wash the feet and cleanse my pride
    Take the selfish, take the weak
    And all the things I cannot hide
    Take the beauty, take my tears
    My sin-soaked heart, make it Yours
    Take my world all apart
    Take it now, take it now
    And serve the ones that I despise
    Speak the words I can't deny
    Watch the world I used to love
    Fall to dust and thrown away
    I look beyond the empty cross
    Forgetting what my life has cost
    Wipe away the crimson stains
    And dull the nails that still remain
    Steal my heart, take the pain
    Take the selfish, take the weak
    And all the things I cannot hide
    Take the beauty, take my tears
    Take my world apart, take my world apart
    I pray, I pray, I pray
    Take my world apart

      Great song. As a practicing Christian I feel blessed to have a band like Jars of Clay. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with the band, stand up gentlemen. And for the song, I feel that is Christianity summed up in one song. Really awesome! God bless!
