eclipse for the son lyrics – stryper

i’ve been running nowhere street
i’ve got to mend my bl**dy feet
i’ve thrown away ten thousand days
i’ve hidden black and white and painted gray

in my weakness, out of pride
i failed to see the other side
it’s a lost and broken war
that i won’t fight for anymore


where did i go wrong?
a shattered life, a wasted song
i composed, i lived and wrote each one
what is destiny?
to live and love and die honorably
so i’ll trade my eclipse for the son

i want to make a difference
i want my life to make some sense
cause when it’s all over
i will have to answer for myself

i’m tearing down my rotten fence
and burying my weak defense
i want to crossover
its time to take my heart off of the shelf
