09. We Won't Numb The Pain

Cathedrals (Deluxe Edition)
by Tenth Avenue North


Weíre taking paths of least resistance
And never feel our soulís persistence
Turn on the radio, we donít want to know
Keep on running in cruise control

We were never meant to live like this
So much is happening too easy to miss, yeah
Cheap thrills, social media pills
Use sex like a drug and we canít keep still

Distracted, distracted
Keep ourselves so districted
But we want more

We wonít numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open Ďtil we die
We wonít numb the pain
Slow down inside the riot
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We wonít numb the pain

Talk influence and being strategic
But all Iím feeling is narcissistic
Use recognition for the adrenaline
Don't stop long enough to hear the disconnection

We were never mean to move like this
Stand up for anything and be dismissed
Oh, we donít want it real, we keep it trivial
Objectified sex keeps us playing the field

We want the cure, not a medication
Weíre gonna deal with it now
We want the cure, not a medication
Weíre gonna deal with it now

Gonna feel my
Gonna feel my
Gonna feel my heart now

Let me get a taste of Your sweetness
Give me one glimpse of Your lovely light
Lord, be my joy, treasure, my delight
Let me have a sense of Your presence
May I trust Your mercy all my life
I just want to be a fire burning in the night


Fire in my heart
Fire in my soul
May the fire of Your love
Burn away control
Satisfy my heart
ĎCause I donít want to steal
Or give in to my lust just to feel
