Oh Hope
by Joshua Luke Smith

Album: Becoming Human


Verse 1
I saw a light burning dimly in the distance
But it meant the darkness had not overcome

Verse 2
And I heard a voice oh so quiet I could hardly even hear
But that whisper meant that I was not alone
And I didn't feel so far from home

Chorus
Oh hope, won't shine as bright as the sun
Oh hope, won't scream as loud as I want but
Oh hope, you flicker a flame and you whisper in the dark
All I ask is that you lead me home
All I ask is that you lead me home

Verse 3
My captain, my captain, I've been asking what happened
Asking for action I feel trapped in the anger, panic, and anguish man
When I look at it linear I feel bitter like vinegar
Life seems like a cinema; every scene seems so similar
So seemingly sinister, the sea seems to sink my ship
I feel like a prisoner look and listen for wisdom and all
I hear is a whisper though I search for a flame and all I see is a flicker
Heard there was purpose in pain
What about when the pain was on purpose?
When we inflicted curses on them innocent persons
And in the wake of the breakup and in the illness and murders
The scripters and the psalmsists they seemed never so nervous
I stare into the face of the serpent with them scales on the surface
You will not take my faith and you will not break my worship
I'ma keep my hands lifted 'til every bone is broken
Best believe I keep spitting 'til every poem is spoken
It's dark out here man, it's dark out here
But the story ain't over cause' the author ain't fear
This is for my sons and for my daughters for the ones stayin' here
The ones walking through war zones and thwarted by fear
Haunted by the past cause' the future ain't clear
Believing nothing will last and disaster is near
I heard a whisper in my ear, a tear fall to the floor
Man I swear that's all I needed to walk into the war
Singin'

Refrain
Oh hope, you flicker a flame and you whisper in the dark
All I ask is that you lead me

Chorus
Oh hope, won't shine as bright as the sun
Oh hope, won't scream as loud as I want but
Oh hope, you flicker a flame and you whisper in the dark
All I ask is that you lead me home
All I ask is that you lead me home

Verse 1
I saw a light burning dimly in the distance
But it meant the darkness had not overcome
