A Bit of Perspective

"I been hit, and I been down —
but I never carried my cross through town!"
— Resurrection Band

So how was your day?

Let's rock!

If I pay, will you take me away, prove your worth to me?
We've been lied to before - how can we be sure?
What if... what if it hurts to believe?
Oh, anyway, open up your door...
Open up the door and I'm coming in.
I know I'm tired of following sin!
I want to give myself to you, Jesus.
But I got some problems I want to talk to you about now...

Oh, Lightshine!

I been hit and I been down, but I never carried my cross through town!
I don't understand it, oh, and I might not be willing to learn.
Tell me, why did you come,
And why were born where the dogs eat dog, and the pigs get all the corn?

Oh, Lightshine, will you be mine?
Do you understand where I've been?
Twilight carries into night,
If I go there, will you follow me in?

What does it mean for a rebel to dream?
I'm a gambler - how can I win?
Am I in danger?
Don't be a stranger to me!

I used to sit and wonder where I was going,
I used to wonder where it would be,
When the curtain fell and time caught up with me.

Have you heard the satanic symphony?
Have you realised that conductor runs you too, unless you know Jesus?
Oh, when the Father calls, do you stall and stall,
Or will you search for the key and receive the truth?

But if your yoke is easy, and your burden is light,
We can take it one day at a time.
Oh Lord, if you change my heart and you change my life, 
that will surely change my mind!

Oh, Lightshine, will you be mine?
Do you understand where I've been?
Twilight carries into night,
If I go there, will you follow me in?

What does it mean for a rebel to dream?
I'm a gambler - how can I win?
Am I in danger?
Don't be a stranger to me!
