Behold! The Prodigal Daughter. Dwelling alone in her own dishonor
Wanted to be left alone to wander but every step gets harder and harder
Never asked to be a martyr. Abandoned the house of her father
Just wanted to see what this world had to offer
But all it could offer was heartache, it tossed her
Into a prison cell, she’s left alone to ponder
How she ever came to be
Slave to this monster
And with each passing day, he’s get stronger
He will not release his hold on her
What a hell, what a prison! Freedom from is a heavenly privlege
And Christ was the key that freed me
Unlocked and adopted, don’t get it twisted
There’s no other way
And no I am not criticizing the system
12 steps just isn’t enough space
To put between me and my conditions
‘Cause they follow like shadows
I twist I turn I run but I cannot escape
I long to step out from the darkness
And let the light burn
my demons away
This poison is killing me slow.
The spirit’s run dry but I still feel alone.
Thought this would cure all my pain now I know
This method of self-medication must go!
Never asked for this affliction
God you warned me but I didn’t listen
Just wanted to see what it was I was missin
Hobby turned to habit; Habit to addiction!
You found me in darkness.
Picked me up and put me back on my feet
You broke the chains that held me captive.
And in your eyes I see that I am finally free
Yup I faced my demons.
You were all that I needed to beat ‘em
I love you love me now my life has reason
A plan and a purpose that can’t be defeated
‘Cause sometimes it hurts so much
Even my bones ache
I feel like giving up
but I find new strength
And each passing day,
I’m getting stronger
No longer the slave
No longer the monster
