    The Assignment

    These Are The Arms That Are Tired
    Tired Of Carrying The Weight Of Your Assignment
    Because Of The Mistakes You Made
    God Has Passed It On To Me
    Did I Have A Purpose
    Or Was My Life Just A Place To Deposit Your Vision
    Your Rebellion Has Become My Punishment

    This Is The Heart That Has Been Broken
    By The Demons That Were Assigned To You
    A Perfect Sacrifice To God I Was
    Born Into A Life Of Sin That I Knew Nothing About
    My Biggest Task Is To Try To Understand Why I Was Chosen
    And What I Do With All This Power

    This Is The Life That Has Been Shattered
    Shattered By Images And Pictures Of Dreams
    I Will Never Fulfill Because Your Assignment Is Calling To Me
    Your Power Is What Runs Through My Spirit
    Your Gift Is What Comes Out Of My Mouth
    Your Curses Are What I Have Been Assigned To Break

    This Is The Assignment : To Tear Down, Pull Up, Uproot And Destroy
    To Build And To Restore That Which Was Lost.
