Break First, Die Later

Weep oh soul weep,
let the flood gates come undone, levies broken down
To wail, hear the frail
cry of brokeness complete now

And if there’s tears
If there’s blood
If it’s your veins
Don’t give up

Stay, oh soul stay
Keep at bay the desperate voice that sings the siren’s choice
Of seas in your skies
Bearing down so violently, drowning the chance to breathe

If it’s deep
It breaks the soul
I know that pain
It takes us all

And if there’s tears
If there’s blood
If it’s your veins
Don’t give up

Live, oh soul live,
And breathe the promise of a
King who’s heart is set to
Beat for you and for your
Dreams of wanting more than
Tragedy restored.
His love will care for you
Prepare the fabric

Your being
The very thing
What makes us feel
What makes us think

And yeah it’s deep
It breaks the soul
I know that pain
It takes us all

Oh I’ve had tears
I’ve shed my blood
it’s in our veins
But I won’t give up

The poison’s in
But we won’t fade out
Just hear the call
Scream out loud

Scream out loud

This song really goes out to anyone who’s seriously dealt with the darkest most negative thoughts we can have – the idea that we should take our very lives away. The primary encouragement in this song, despite it’s somber tone is to express oneself and to “let it all out” instead of trying to contain one’s inner turmoil.  It interludes slightly with that reminder that God is always there for us, and even in the darkest of hours, desires the best for us. We haven’t all been there, but some of us have, and even when you think there’s no one that feels like you, there most certainly is.
