One day I built a maze, I raised the walls so high I could not find a way
And each brick I laid in place had a name inscribed upon it's face
My mind was so confused and my hands were cold and bruised
As each brick revealed the lies and the sins that I had fused
And as each brick I laid, I raised the thought that this is what life has for me
And that is what I got
The maze – when you feel it rot and pick it up. When you're feeling like you've got the power – oh yeah!
You keep building up a throne of broken – oh no! You keep building it, but it has got you made.
For some days I wandered in a haze in this city of my sin until I wondered what I got
Then I see, it's not me, all these walls I'd built had somehow destroyed me. Then the sun got hot.
Then the Son got hot, yeah.
For the first time I lifted up my eyes, and as my hands, they had followed suit, then to my surprise the sun had
Made this maze burn away and in these endless days (this endless daze) I'll sing to my Creator
That is what I got.
You've got to give it up.
