lyrics

I walked across a shallow river
Where I lay beneath the trees
And in my sleep came a demon to steal my soul
When I woke my mind was clouded
Could not remember whence I came
And I found uncertain dread had gripped me deep down to my bones

I'd no choice but to run
In no direction at all
I would find my end
I would bruise my knees
And the rightful foe
Was with me all along
It was the fear in me
It was the fear in me

I wandered far through the mountains
Through the mud, through the marsh
Up to the edge of the sea where I stopped to gather up my strength
Then rose a voice from the waters
Followed by a blinding light
And a storm filled the sky, and the waves crashed down on me

Weakened and afraid
I found myself at war
Everything I loved had been set on fire
Black smoke rise
Won't you color up the sun
Then falls the light
And the battle's begun

I walked alone in my father's stead
There was I to myself reconciled
We dug a well down in Canaan land
Where we drank, and were satisfied
