lyrics

God is the earth and I wade through the dirt every day
Debating the nature of things and the worth of my ways
And all of this time I’m missing the signs on the way
Keeping my head down, losing the path I should take

He is the wind and he’s howling and calling my name
I look for shelter and carefully plan my escape
Hiding in limbo, neither belief or denial
Forgetting the others begging for love all the while

So get over yourself, hold onto the reins
Let go of yourself; bear your cross once again

You are the fire that I’m at a loss to contain
A tough of the heat and I’ll only retreat from the flame
You are the water either I drink or I drown
Bowing before you, pressing my lips to the ground

So how long will it take? How hard can it be?
How long must I wait? You’re beckoning me
To get over myself, hold onto the reins
Let go of myself; take courage again

You were my earth and my wind and my fire and my flame
All that I needed but feared I believed for in vain
And all of the times I was groaning inside for a way
Drowned out the sound of you tenderly calling my name

To get over myself, hold onto the reins
Let go of myself; take courage again
Hang onto the hope, stand firm ‘til the day
There’s nothing to know, there’s nothing to say

So get over yourself, hold onto the reins
