The Man I’ve Been

The truth can taste like poison 
when I’m living in my sin

So brutal condescending
faithful are the wounds of friends

I’m running out of difference
between me and most again

A prodigal can’t reason
his way out of this pig pen

I’ve given up believing any
good thing lies within

My stoney heart stopped beating
when I saw beyond the end

My new man He’s creating
He’s awakened from within

The man I want to be lives 
crucify the man I’ve been
