Description
In the book of Romans Paul writes..

We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. (Romans 7:14-23)

I was praying, needing, a way to says this in just a few words. I don’t think I succeeded. So, at least here you can see where the song was inspired. I pray for God’s mercy and grace. I pray for the strength that I know I have in Christ to overcome the desires to do the wrong things in whatever situation I face.

I hope this helps you to understand.

Lyrics
Could it be a random thing? I don’t understand.
Am I the only one? Lord I’m struggling.
When I want to do right Wrong is right there, inside me.
But in my inner most, a perfect law
And the battle’s on.
I pray for your mercy!
I know there ain’t nothing that’s good in me.
But I’m strong in your Spirit.
And I stand cause your righteousness makes me free.
