  1. I'm currently experiencing the fallout from leaving an abusive relationship that lasted way too long. I listen to this to give me the strength to know I'm doing the right thing by starting over, no matter how scary it may be!

  2. Be merciful to me, O God, because of your constant love. Because of your great mercy wipe away my sins! Wash away all my evil and make me clean from my sin!
    I recognize my faults; I am always conscious of my sins. I have sinned against you — only against you — and done what you consider evil. So you are right in judging me; you are justified in condemning me. I have been evil from the day I was born; from the time I was conceived, I have been sinful.
    Sincerity and truth are what you require; fill my mind with your wisdom. Remove my sin, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear the sounds of joy and gladness; and though you have crushed me and broken me, I will be happy once again. Close your eyes to my sins and wipe out all my evil.
    Create a pure heart in me, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in me. Do not banish me from your presence; do not take your holy spirit away from me. Give me again the joy that comes from your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Then I will teach sinners your commands, and they will turn back to you.
    Spare my life, O God, and save me, and I will gladly proclaim your righteousness. Help me to speak, Lord, and I will praise you. You do not want sacrifices, or I would offer them; you are not pleased with burnt offerings. My sacrifice is a humble spirit, O God; you will not reject a humble and repentant heart.

  3. I found relevance in this song…long story short…… My sister is 25 years old married to a 51 year old, is now 5 months pregnant, not to mention she was pregnant twice before, the first time she was forced by him to abort the baby, second time she lost it and one of her tubes because it was stuck in her left tube, so the doctors had to remove the baby and her tube, and now she's pregnant again, not to mention again, she is also injecting meth, she was clean for the first five months, for only five months, she has been using, not injecting, but snorting it, since she met him(about 5 years), he also beats her everytime he gets drunk or high. I don't know what to do anymore,

    I keep sending her messages, maybe I'll try a link to this video, and hopefully, I will hear back from her, I hope she is ok.

  4. BASICALLY IT TURNED PEOPLE INSANE THE CAVE READ ON once u realize how dark the allegory of the cave was this song…… OKAY so there was this guy plato, super rich dude. so he got these prisoners and "Tie Me To a Post AND BLock my ears " and they were tied up and couldn't turn there heads. Behind them was a fire it didnt llike hurt them though. So anyway there were puppeteers and the would do stuff. and the fire showed the shadows, which is what the prisoners saw, the shadows. so like if a puppeteer showed a book the prisoner saw the shadow and say " Look a Book" which isn't true.] he saw the shadow. Basically they we're sort of turned their minds against them…..

  5. My Best friend loved this song showed it to me years ago. He committed suicide 3 years ago. I am just now looking into the meaning of this song and it is so beautiful to me. Even though years ago I thought it was silly.
