Human Becoming

Today I am the same as I was the day before

Pray for courage to be stronger; can't take it anymore

To be like an angel by the grace of God

But my beauty's imperfection, I'm perfectly flawed

 

I storm the gates of heaven, I choose therefore I am

A love they cannot fathom, a gift they misunderstand

To be like an angel by the grace of God. 

But my beauty's imperfection, I'm perfectly flawed

 

Would you steal, would you kill, do you try, do you fail

Do you hunger or bleed as you fall to your knees

Is there love, is there hate, even comfort or pain

Is there knowledge or fear, a desire to live

 

I make my bed in heaven, I make my bed in hell

I know that You are with me, why, I cannot tell 

To be like an angel by the grace of God

But my beauty's imperfection, I'm perfectly flawed

 

Would you steal, would you kill, do you try, do you fail

Do you hunger or bleed as you fall to your knees

Is there love, is there hate, even comfort or pain

Is there knowledge or fear, a desire to live

 

Today I am the same as I was the day before

Pray for courage to be stronger; can't take it anymore

To be like an angel by the grace of God

But my beauty's imperfection, I'm perfectly flawed
