Lineage

[Verse]

Always too much in my head I’ve let me tend

So I’m missing out on a world, a life, not spent

I wish I remembered my child-like faith

That patient grace

‘Cause then I’d see me through
[Verse]

How often is fear not the cause, but great excuse?

Exhausted and busy, but blind, this life’s abuse

I bet there’s a way that’s a different pace from another place

How I was made to do

[Chorus]

All my love is a compass

Pointing to something I must find

Cause I wasn’t made to just barely get by

I know you feel the same inside[Verse]

Remind me where I’ve been

I want to remember the path that let me in

How ’bout I reset what was gifted me?

A sour treat, a lineage refused[Chorus]

All my love is a compass

Pointing to something I must find

Cause I wasn’t made to just barely get by

I know you feel the same inside[Bridge]

Could’ve fallen in the trap I’ve seen a thousand times

Was abandoned so I keep it in the front of my mind

“Never trust again” is easy and it leaves you cold

I’m still young but I can see how self-pity grows old

There are pieces I can feel that long for what once was

Handed down and all they’ll do is keep me all alone

I decline, reject, deny what was inheritance

I admit, accept the pain, that kills this brokenness

[Chorus]

All my love is a compass

Pointing to something I must find

Cause I wasn’t made to just barely get by

I know you feel the same inside
