5:8 - Lyrics

Everybody walking in the dark now
Ain't nobody ever open up about their hearts now
Everybody saying that they're doing just fine
But ya look a little closer, you can see through the lie
I was in a bad place for a long time, believe me
I never told nobody, never let them see me
Chained down, in the dark, nobody could free me
Tryna break my own chains, my flesh was deceiving
Perceiving reality through a kaleidoscope
Had it twisted, so vivid, I missed that my only hope
Was switching from wishing, instead giving God control
Then I made known what I had
cloaked, the darkness choked and now I know
That I can never be a slave to what my God's put in the grave
He gave me life, now I am safe and I'm living by grace through faith
Never perfect, but increasing, forget my feelings, keep believing
I can see now and so clearly, the light inside will never leave me

I was walking in the dark
I stepped out into the light
Now I'm keeping up my guard
I won't let up in the fight
I won't always get it right
But I know because of Christ
His sacrifice has paid the price
And He's always by my side

Nowadays we're so caught up in what's in front of us
E'rybody got ADHD and technology's running us
Crushing us, we strike our browser history
So that we look clean, but we're never getting victory
No more of that, no more chasing what our flesh wants
The sinless Son of God, He came and suffered death once
So that we could be free, let's live like it, 'cause guess what?
If we really love God, the enemy cannot best us
This world is messed up, sin is always elevated
But with the Holy Spirit in us we got sanctification
Our pursuits and our desires are forever changing
As we become more and more like the One who made us
So I'm dying to my flesh and I'm living for the Lord
You know my enemy can not stand against the Sword
I know this life ain't easy, living it's a war
But the Lion's on my side, face me, you gon' hear His roar

I was walking in the dark
I stepped out into the light
Now I'm keeping up my guard
I won't let up in the fight
I won't always get it right
But I know because of Christ
His sacrifice has paid the price
And He's always by my side

I was walking in the dark
I stepped out into the light
Now I'm keeping up my guard
I won't let up in the fight
I won't always get it right
But I know because of Christ
His sacrifice has paid the price
And He's always by my side

I'm waking up and deciding to follow Christ
Abstaining from all the things that my flesh desires
I'm living for a mission that is so much higher
Then anything I could find by pursuing what ends in fire
