The evil fell from your pretty mouth, wrapped in your classic voice
Angelic in your syntax, demonic in your motive
Your pretty eyes don't know that
The water flowing from this well isn't fresh

Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Turn all the way around, be swept away by this

Time for surrender
Spread out your open hands and he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

Your clothes are smooth and spotless, the air is putrid sewage down
Wind of your pressed church clothes
Your eyes are black and empty, your deeds are just for showing
How big and bright your fake smile glows

I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do

See them surrender
Spread out your open hands and he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken, look at the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

I see you moving and they're getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
You're staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do

So get this hell out, get this hell out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say
So get this hell out, get this hell out of my way
Get this hell out, get this hell out of my way

We spread our open hands and he is rising up
Repairing all that's broken, look at the healing come
We spread our open hands, forgiveness holds them up
We're swept away by this
