took 5 hours to record

Thought of an allegory while in church about us trying to paint a picture and the various responses to the inability of being able to do such a thing. Then decided to write this song as a response to the "Embrace the reality of Hell, and live" song because of it's hoplessness.

LYRICS

VERSE 1
we painted a picture
but it didn't look like
anything it's supposed to be
we saw the perfect one
and tried to imitate it
but we never got
anywhere close to it
we didn't have the skill
or resources and so we gave up

PRE-CHORUS
I know it looks dark when we open our eyes
and envision all our destruction
even right here we are hoplessley fallen
without any strength

CHORUS
look and see
a hope in the distance
awaiting and seeking you out
from horizons He's here
so open your arms and let Him
let Him in

VERSE 2
we were proud
and because we couldn't do it
we just stuck to slander
but others tied a noose
before they lost all their pride
and we just kept on trying
with our faulty methods
and though it looks nice now
it's just another deception
