views that never cease, to keep me from myself lyrics – we came as romans

i am so far away
and it’s more than i can take
i haven’t heard your voice in days
i haven’t heard your voice in days

what is the measure of a man?
is it wading through the worst?
or is the measure of a man
admitting when he is defeated?

but i am not and will not be defeated
i have given everything in my life for this
i’m counting down the days
though i’ve been broken and beaten
i know i can’t let it, i know i can’t let it win

this feeling that there is nothing left
that my purpose is gone
these views, they never cease
to keep me from myself and who i am
so what makes the measure of a man?
is it being too stubborn to let go of the good and move on?

but i am not and will not be defeated
i will wade through the worst of it all
i’m counting down the days
though i’ve been broken and beaten
i am not done with this
i know i will not fall

this is my deepest dream
or is this a nightmare in disguise?
what makes the measure of a man?
is it always trying to do right?
i’m’ so far away
and i don’t know if it’s more than i can take
with these views, that never cease to keep me from myself

with these views, they never cease to keep me from myself
i will keep moving forward when i have nothing left

i am not and will not be defeated
i’ve given everything in my life for this
but i am not and will not be defeated
i’ve given everything in my life for this
