I was sinking in despair,
With my lifeline right over there
It was just out of reach to me,
'Cause I was too proud to ask,
So I could never receive
I was drowning in,
My own tears,
Submerged by the pressure,
Of my own fears,
When suddenly,
My eyes blinked

And it became so very clear...

I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
I was quitting when I was able,
To stand up on my own
And I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
So it's time to turn the tables,
Or else risk living life alone

(Faithless, faithless, among the faithful)
(Faithless, so faithless, among the faithful)

I was sitting down,
At a feast for ten,
But for some reason I just,
Couldn't dig in,
I was starving myself of more,
Than just food
I lift a glass,
To drink my fill,
But the only thing I can do,
Is slowly spill,
The drops of my life

All across the room...

I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
I was quitting when I was able,
To stand up on my own
And I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
So it's time to turn the tables,
Or else risk living life alone

(Faithless, faithless, among the faithful)
(Faithless, so faithless, among the faithful)

I don't need a fork and knife,
To get this job done,
'Cause if I'm not willing to get my hands dirty...

Then this battle can never be won...

I will still be!
Faithless among the faithful,
I will be quitting when I am able,
To stand up on my own
And I will be!
Faithless among the faithful,
So it's time to turn the tables,
Or else risk living life alone

(Faithless, faithless, among the faithful)
(Faithless, so faithless, among the faithful...)

Exactly, it's "stuff." It has no real substance.

Your welcome. :) Wish I could match this for quality sometimes.

I've finally given some fully original work of my own a chance. It's not poetry or lyrics like this and it's only two chapters so far but... It's a start. :) Two people like the first chapter. :)

You must please yourself first, if YOU are happy with what you've created, what someone else thinks doesn't matter, in fact, your own happiness will infect others, and bring them happiness as well. :heart:

Ok, are you tired of me commenting yet ? :P

Anywho... we all lose faith at some point. It is in those times that we are tested. We can not appreciate our faith without losing it every now and then. Look at those moments of being the faithless among the faithful as your reminder of your strength. You coudl have remained faithless, but you did not. You CHOSE to reclaim your faith and your place. It was always there, as it always will be. You may stray from time to time, but it will always wait, faithfully, as all good things in your life will. Welcome back my friend :D
