06. Back Road

Progress Isn't A Straight Line
by Luke Knodel

       
Lyrics:

[Chorus]
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home

[Verse 1]
Havenít been happy in a while, empty smiles
Plenty miles living vile, still a child, in a trial
You would all see that Iím guilty, sinning it donít complete me
Wish grace it wasnít increasing, I hate it and donít wanna repeat
Believe me, sometimes I try to fight, it still defeats me
At night I lie awake when I know that I should be sleeping
Dreaming, now thatís my favorite place to be
Where thereís rest from all this stress yeah I can be free
No one can know about this man I gotta hide it
But I find it dies when I shine it in the light and fight it
Thatís right, donít deny it, alright I wonít be quiet
Cause I know Iím not the only one whoís fighting a giant
Ok, I just want to slay him today
Heís mocking my God day after day, Iím hating the way that I stray
And how I stay in this coffin
But Iíve got some smooth stones in my pocket, letís let em loose like a rocket

[Chorus]
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home

[Verse 2]
So I let it fly and then it missed
Maybe I just didnít commit? This hopeless feeling persists
And burrows deeply within, I left the narrow again
Thrown in the dungeon by the giant despair
Sitting in this prison bad decisions for nine years
Feel like Iíve been losing my sight here, Iím lightyears
From where I should be, my life is losing its flavor
I just wanna be free from all this wicked behavior
I know whatís right to do but Iíve been choosing whatís easy
I donít like to lose, this habitís hurting me deeply
God wonít you free me, Iím lost and Iím bleeding
Toss me the keys please, I want to be leaving
But Iím still here, drinking from a
Broken cistern of my own tears but donít fear
Thereís grace for your mistakes though you stray to a back road
Your sinning was forgiven on the cross so go back home

[Chorus]
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home

[Bridge]
Lord what I should say to you?
Lord can I please stay with you?

[Chorus]
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home

[Outro]
Why you on a back road?
Off the narrow path itís what I chose
Yeah I know Itís sad and I lack hope
Father help me back home
