Gratitude

This song is by VNV Nation and appears on the album Automatic (2011).

It is not love if love is cold to touch
It is not belief when there's nothing there to trust
Could not submit, would never bring myself to heel
Determination grows as each truth's revealed

Torn and repaired, just to endure it all again
Without a reason for my place in all this pain
Though well concealed, the scars they just compound
Until there's nothing left of what was my former self

My god, look at what we are now
Without regret for all the things that we have done

Thank you for all the doubts, and for all the questioning
For all the loneliness, and for all the suffering
For all the emptiness, and the scars it left inside
It inspired in me an impetus to fight

For the conviction, for the purpose found alone
For the strength and courage that in me I've never known
And if it seems to you that my words are undeserved
I write this in gratitude for whatever good it serves

Sometimes I wish that you could see me now
In the rightful place where I knew that I belonged
Sometimes I wish that you might someday understand
And close the chapter, and lay to rest the past

But nothing would change, we make the best of what we have
For we are measured by the actions of our lives
We bide our time, let the future unfold
Like immortals, in great legends to be told

My god, look at what we are now
Without regret for all the things that we have done

Thank you for all the doubts, and for all the questioning
For all the loneliness, and for all the suffering
For all the emptiness, and the scars it left inside
It inspired in me, an impetus to fight

To all who stood with me when we stood as one
Thank you for guiding me, for bringing me home
And if it seems that I'm obliged to say these words
I write this in gratitude, the least that you deserve
