03. Two Hands

The Long Fall Back To Earth
by Jars of Clay



 

I’ve been living out of sanity
I’ve been splitting hairs and blurring lines
I am a house that is divided
In my heart and in my mind

I use one hand to pull you closer
The other to push you away
If I had two hands doing the same thing
Lifted high, lifted high

I have a broken disposition
I’m a liar who thirsts for the truth
And while I ache for faith to hold me
I need to feel the scars and see the proof

And if we just keep digging we can reach the foundation
Of our souls
And if we just keep cutting all the chains from our hearts
We’ll lose control

And it feels like giving in
It feels like starting over
It feels like waking up, and you know it’s coming
It feels like a brand new day
Open your eyes

Behind the Song:
DAN HASELTINE: “‘Two Hands’ was the last song we wrote for the record. We'd been trying to find a way to try to connect all the various themes of the album -- relationships, faith, social justice -- with one unifying anthem.”

STEVE MASON: “With ‘Two Hands,’ we’re trying to take all our ideas and theories and knowledge and directly connect them to our hearts in the belief that, when we do, we can move into the fullness of who we are as God created us and give of ourselves in powerful ways to those around us.”

MATT ODMARK: “You'll see a theme in our recent records about the dual nature of the human heart. On Good Monsters, we explored the pain of this duality, but THE LONG FALL… examines that duality from a more innocent, hopeful place and purely expresses the longing to see those things that are broken be mended.”
