Swept Away Lyrics - Flyleaf



Review The Song (2)


Help... help... help...
Out out out out out out out now now now now now now now
Out out out out out out out now now now now now now!!

The evil fell from your pretty mouth, wrapped in your classic voice.
Angelic in your syntax, demonic in your motive,
Your pretty eyes don't know that
The water flowing from this well isn't fresh.
Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up,
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come,
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut,
Turn all the way around, be swept away by this...

Time for surrender!
Spread out your open hands,
And He will raise you up!
Confessing all that's broken,
And watch the healing come!
Spread out your open hands!
Admit you've held them shut!
Be swept away by this...

Your clothes are smooth and spotless, the air is putrid sewage
Downwind of your pressed church clothes.
Your eyes are black and empty, your deeds are just for showing
How big and bright your fake smile glows.
I see you moving and they're getting scared,
Their eyes are focusing on something else.
Your staring at me and I stare at you,
I rage against everything that you do.

See them surrender!
Spread out your open hands,
And He will raise you up!
Confessing all that's broken,
Look at the healing come!
Spread out your open hands!
Admit you've held them shut,
Be swept away by this...

I see you moving and they're getting scared,
Their eyes are focusing on something else.
Your staring at me and I stare at you,
I rage against everything that you do, so,
Get this hell out, get this hell out out out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say, so,
Get this hell out, get this hell out out out of my way
Get this HELL OUT, get this HELL OUT OUT OUT OF MY WAY!!!

We spread our open hands,
And He is rising up!
Repairing all that broken,
Look at the healing come!
We spread our open hands,
Forgiveness holds them up!
We're swept away by this...

Out out out out out out out
Now now now now now now now
Out out out out out out out
Now now now now now now now!!

This song is so true! | Reviewer: Anomymous | 11/14/10

This song, from my perspective, is about people who call themselves Christians but really aren't. They go to church, they know the bible stories, but what they don't know is that those things don't make you a Christian. Being a Christian is about your relationship with Christ, and that's what makes you a true Christian. Also, the chorus has so much hope in it, I get chills every time I listen to this song. I love it, one of my favourite songs by Flyleaf!



Simply beautiful | Reviewer: Patrick | 1/5/10

I really love this song out of all the songs on the album. It goes from this absolutely crazy sick ( in a good way ) hardcore intro to being a song I can close my eyes and worship to. I heard Lacey talking about a song Pat wrote, I think this is him haha. :] It's a great song I love it's synister yet beautiful nature. Flyleaf really has captured my heart.
