Then Sings my Soul Saturday



I shared a Skillet song on Thursday and while I was looking them up I found this one that I had never heard before. It's GOOD - I bought it on iTunes right away :)


I love the part at the end that they say "sir we have a containment breach - we lost 'em - they're out in the open".

Lord, I know that is when my enemy loses me :) It's when I put things out in the light, when I use my voice to pray and get loose of those bonds that I get out in the open :). No more secrets, no more lies to keep me alone in the dark, right where my enemy wants me, turning me into a monster. You and I both know I cannot control this monster, it's strong and it's ugly. Sometimes it makes me rage from inside the cage, but that is exactly what keeps me bound.

I used to think I needed help from someone else to get me out, to help me save myself and bring an end to it, but I've been seeing lately that that is a lie from the monster! I hear it deep within', just beneath my skin telling me I can't do it alone. Telling me it's okay to be alone. I know the truth is, I am NEVER alone! Even when I give in to the monster!

I hate that I give in the my flesh, I give in to the monster. The very thing that will kill me! The thing that works with my enemy... in my sleep, enticing me, lieing to me, trying to scare me and threaten me!!! Telling me not to wake anyone up, not to get up and fight, not to pray or read Your word... "it's just a dream - go back to sleep" - NO!!! SHUT UP MONSTER!!!

You're the one in a cage. You answer to MY King! You're the one that will be torn apart. You're the one I'm calling out!!! You're the one He's breaking down. He's always here with me. He's come to save me and make it end, I know, I feel it deep within. You're hiding in the dark, your teeth are razor sharp, but I'm not afraid of you because my King is against you monster!!! He has an escape for me, there is a way for me, because He has my soul and has my heart! I'm not this monster!



Lyrics:
The secret side of me, I never let you see
I keep it caged but I can't control it
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

My secret side I keep hid under lock and key
I keep it caged but I can't control it
'Cause if I let him out he'll tear me up, break me down
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It's hiding in the dark, it's teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me, it wants my soul, it wants my heart
No one can hear me scream, maybe it's just a dream
Maybe it's inside of me, stop this monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I've gotta lose control, he something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster
