Swept Away Lyrics

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

Downwind 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

You're 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 their 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 out of my way

There's nothing more that you can say so

Get this hell out' get this hell out' out 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
