Story Behind the Song

lyrically, like most of my songs, this was pretty much taken from my journal entries--i was wrestling with temptation.....this song is basically a prayer and one that i've prayed at least a zillion umpteen times.

Lyrics

TEMPLE OF CONTRADICTIONS

who's this with a temple of contradictions?
no, that's not me, i'd never do that
don't try to tell me differently
don't make me face up to my hypocricy
i've been spitting into the wind
i've been chasing fire
this wandering heart of mine's
traded integrity for compromise

CHORUS
hey God, can you help these concrete feet
walk away from temptation Godspeed?
'cause i'm weakening
like the seams in my worn out faded jeans
hey God, can you come and clean up my insides?
i'm tired of whitewashing the outside
here's my unveiled heart
bleeding down my sleeve
can you hear it beating out
forgive me, forgive me?
can you hear it beating out
forgive me?

i say i'm an honest person
so when did my tongue become coated with white lies?
i say i'm a wholesome woman
so how come i've been in the dark too much with this guy?
i feel like a basket
that keeps trying to hold water
i feel like a traitor
who kisses his friend then turns him over
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
why do i do the things i don't want to do?
what pulls me away from demonstrating my love for you?
i'm a little embarrassed
i'm a lot ashamed
won't you silence this raging thunder
in this temple of contradictions?
(CHORUS)
