So Much For Substitutes
by downhere



 


The walls are all surrounding
What's behind the paint?
I put up all my hangings,
But do they hide the stains?
All the pictures on the paper
Never changed the way I look inside
I'm surfacing to the light

Chorus
Walls peeling around me
Crumbling, falling
Can't hold them up
Walls peeling around me
We're standing so proudly
Can't hold them up to Your light

The truth is now likening
The rich to the beggars
A name is just a name
When you're powerless and pained
And shalom's far away
See, the mighty walls will tremble
With nothing left to keep this front alive
Held up to the light

Chorus

Chorus
Walls all crumble around me
Tumbling, falling
Can't hold them up
As hard as I try
Walls, peeling around me
And you see through the proudest
And I can't hold them up to Your light
Held to the light

Written by Glenn Lavender / Marc Martel / Jason Germain

Behind the Song:
Ecc. 12
No matter who you are, you can't put up walls thick enough for God not to be able to see through. The walls between God, us, and those around us will eventually crumble as we all have the same basic needs for love and redemption. - Marc Martel (downhere)
