The Emptiest Day

While the christian community as a whole seems very uncomfortable with recognizing mental illnesses for what they are (actual medical illnesses that have a huge impact on our spiritual relationships) there are always a few bands/musicians who hit the proverbial nail on the head… and every once in a while there will be one song that speaks so loudly to me… well, I know why it was written.

They say You live in hospitals and trenches
And towers in the sky
And I’m not dying or fighting any wars
Except on the inside

The only thing I need is a void that You can fill
And I jump ship and run even further in Your will

And I am looking for the well that won’t run dry
The rest that weary thoughts cannot deny
When You wrap Your arms around me
I can walk away or face the emptiest day

The words I find impossible to mention
Are written on a star
They say that I can find You in a flower
But I need You in the car

The optimism of my youth is dead and gone
But I’ll save these speculations for another time and song

And life is only perceived through chemicals and emotion
But love, love is the island that overgrows the ocean

Caedmons Call ‘TheEmptiest Day’
