The Title of the song comes from Isaiah.But the song is about The disciples on the boat when the storm hit(The Tempest).and Jesus is awoken by his Disciples who have by this time seen his miracles and healings and still think that something like a storm is going to harm them.they ask ,Do you not care that we are about to Drown?Jesus simply says a word and the ocean is still and peaceful again and he returns to his nap.Also another time,he comes walking on the water and calls Peter to walk out to him on the stormy waters and still he trembles with fear and starts to sink and Jesus tells him not to doubt and to trust him and they climb back into the boat together.On that day two people walked on water.And In our everyday life we wake up with the best intentions only to let our mind wander and lose our focus on God and we start to make all the wrong choices.We doubt,We shake ,We stumble,run and hide.So the fear gets the best of us and our lives become Nightmares that we self perpetuate just because we forget that God is in control and we follow our own thoughts instead of trusting the one who simply speaks a word and all of the things we think are so scary and impossible turns into the peace that passing all understanding. Calms all the storms in our lives. -David Belan Jarmon

lyrics

VERSE 1
Awakening
From Troubled sleep
All my thoughts run Wild
Where did He go that child

But I'm Inclined
To tow the line
Like a race to my disgrace
It keeps on haunting me


CHORUS
I need to break these chains
That hover over me
Take down my Guard
Undo the veil so I believe
Consume me like a fire rising out of me
Remove these blind mans scales
I really need to see

VERSE 2
Tempest Tossed I feel so lost
Why are they crowding me?
You seem so far away
On The throne You Rule
My Sins paid in full
I remember what You've done
The Father wills the Son

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE-
I seek relief in sleep
From the troubles of the day

But then I need to wake from this nightmare
Where can I go to get away?

I look for everywhere to run to
Except to the only One who
Gives me power when the troubles shower

Bring the tempest to it's knees
Bring it down to a breeze

Or fill me with Your strength
True captain of my soul

You're the truth that sets me free
The One worthy of belief
the One worthy of belief

VERSE 3
The pain I cause

Makes me so weak

Sometimes we fall asleep

The nightmares just begun

I turn from You

That's what I do

Thank God Your here with me

To calm this raging sea

CHORUS (ALT)
I need to break these chains
That hover over me
But I get confused
And start my day just wandering
I doubt ,I shake,I stumble,Run and Hide
Why can't I reach on in and free the love inside
