Where’s the oxygen?

Sinkin’ in the deep
water surrounding every crevasse of the body
can’t breathe
was searching for a greater purpose
now drowning in a sea of burden

Sinkin’ in the deep
water sneaking through every crack in the body
can’t see
don’t know which way’s up or down
drowning in a sea of confusion

Sinkin’ in the deep
water’s pushing me lower and lower
can’t believe
vulnerable to the vast creatures that guard the sea
drowning in the ocean of fear

Rising to the surface
God’s oxygen of love surrounding me
can finally breathe
found my greater purpose
now floating in a sea of love

Rising to the surface
faith seeping in through every crack in the body
can finally see
His light guides me up
swimming in a sea of clarity

Rising to the surface
encouragement pushes me higher and higher
can now peacefully believe
His strength guards me against all evil
flourishing in a safe ocean of love
