Funnythere came a timeFunny by caffienekills
when all i knew was put down on paper
and you threw my record into the flame
funny how i found and lost myself within you, babe
there came a time
when all i knew was your warm touch
and for some reason you felt so cold to me
funny how you crave the things you'll never be
i loved you, and i guess that was too much
or maybe, it wasn't enough
i guess i'm just never enough for you, babe
and my friends say: "darlin, don't cry now, you're too good for him"
well friends, why did you wait this long to say?
"darling, you're gonna wake up someday and not love him."
well i still gotta love him, loving him makes me sane
oh there came a time
when all i knew came falling falling falling down
but you didn't come tumbling after with your broken crown
funny how fairytales fail you when you're in need
and there came a time
when all i got from you was hollow lies
but i would take the words like medication
funny how i took your bruises like a kiss on the hand
i loved you, and i guess tha
The consequence of sinI saw you leaving church, today...The consequence of sin by christians
You seem to think you know the way.
But explain some of these things you say
and do on all of these other days?
Do you see this problem that you raise?
I've seen these promises you bring...
But do you hear the words you sing?
Your faith is dangling by a string!
What's left is but a fragile thing:
I'll ask again: Who is your King?
In gain you find your victory:
You've made yourself too blind to see!
What you say and do and know are three
distinguished things; Hypocrisy!
Stop living like a Pharisee,
and prove that you are truly free.
Does it phase you not to see them weep?
You could give, but you'd rather keep
what you don't need! How do you sleep?
...Know that pride is not for sheep, and what you sew is what you reap.
But you are not lost: not yet!
Selfishness isn't worth the bet --
Though the ears this falls on may be deaf,
I'll say this with my dying breath:
. . .The consequence of sin . . .
Die to yourself.
I sing, I write, I sleep, I travel, I pray, I nap, I rock the boat till everyone falls out, I irritate people, I scream, I play, I read, I drink, I dream, I shoot my mouth off and I have been known to think, on occasion. I must be completely open and honest so that in showing how broken and wrecked I am, God can be shown to be perfect, and the source of all joy and satisfaction (Ps. 16:11)|
