Further Up and Further In

When our pain lasts so long, it’s the theme of our song

And our hope has turned to despair

When we’re buried beneath the weight of this grief

And a burden that we cannot bear

This story ain’t over…This story ain’t over…

When the dusk eats away at the light of the day

And our time has set with the sun

When the shadows descend and our days come to an end

And the last breath escapes from our lungs

This story ain’t over…This story ain’t over…

 

When an innocent man takes a murderer’s hand

And swaps places with him on death row

When he lays down his life and the crowd sees him die

And they bury him six feet below

This story ain’t over…This story ain’t over…

 

When he wipes away our tears and we’ve been there ten thousand years

And our pain is just part of the past

When we’ve gone further up and we’ve gone further in

And every chapter is better than the last

This story ain’t over…This story ain’t over…

This story ain’t over…This story ain’t over…
