I wrote this during the large group session at the NACCM student leadership conference and then sang it at open mic night about an hour later. I hadn't got the music figured out yet, so while I was singing I was also trying to come up with the next chord and melody bit... :rofl: It went well.

I need someone to break me down
Smash my foolish pride down to the ground
I think I know someone woh can
But I don't listen

I need to do what I cannot do
To be the things I cannot be
I get in the way of everything
When all I can see is me

But you're grinding my golden calf down into dust
The bars of my stainless steel cage turn to rust
My new clothes reveal the skin covering my bones
And there's nothing I have I can say that I own
It's all yours...

And it's all meaningless.... without you (three times)
Help me to find you...

Father I need you to break me down
Smash my foolish pride down into the ground
Help me to see your face instead of mine
Help me to listen

reminds me of that verse where it talks about doing what you don't want to do and not doing what you know you need to do.


good song :)

I like this bit the best:

But you're grinding my golden calf down into dust
The bars of my stainless steel cage turn to rust
My new clothes reveal the skin covering my bones
And there's nothing I have I can say that I own
Did anyone get the "new clothes" reference?
