Michael Sweet — Stone lyrics

(Ezekiel 11:19, John 8:36)
All my life I spent, running from my fears
Away from all the pain, the pain that I've left behind
There's wounded everywhere, but I'm to hard to care
They melt into the face of who I trust in
PRE - CHORUS
I am beat, and I'm so tired of trying
For a chance to earn grace all alone
CHORUS
I am stone, I'm smiling, living, loving, dying
There ain't much more than what you can see
Deep inside I'm crying, for what I keep denying
For that's the very thing that sets me free
I waste so much time, feeding on self pride
My own depravity is all that I can see
So then I try to hide, the clothes of skin God's made
I lay them on a shelf, and slowly they fade
PRE - CHORUS
I am beat, and I'm so tired of trying
For a chance to earn grace all alone
CHORUS
I am stone, I'm smiling, living, loving, dying
There ain't much more than what you can see
Deep inside I'm crying, for what I keep denying
For that's the very thing that sets me free
