open up the sky lyrics – hope for the dying

thousands weep in vain
did we depend
on what we didn’t know
for our survival

broken we have turned
scattered by the world
resting in ourselves
for our salvation

no, is this really true?
could we have failed?
is this our final chance
to fully surrender?

let the light surround us
let our hearts be torn
let our pride fall
let our voices be heard
i surrender all

eyes to the sky we’ve lost our faith with our face to
the earth
we left our dependence within, can we begin again

devoid of masters i fared better on my own

we spend our days waiting for the sun to rise again
bringing us the answers to our faults
can we forfeit our thoughts and our desperate need for
can we surrender
can we surrender
can we surrender

let it go, let it fall, all i have gone

all of the earth can fade
lifting my hands i fall
nothing can cloud my heart
i will let it go

forfeit all i’ll ever become
standing empty waiting to be filled
with the essence of god

close up the earth, command the clouds
let the rain fall, the water pouring down
flood all the rivers, the oceans overflow
open up the sky, open up the sky.
