I'm a stranger
Alone in a world I tried to create
Helpless by this constant battle of hate
Wondering how I could ever continue
To dream a dream that's always in limbo
I'm lost, but that doesn't mean I don't know where to go
Please don't tell me again, I already know...
I need a deeper answer
Can anyone tell me how one finds alignment with the greater cosmos and with our God?
How do you set a heart that only beats to created melodies to find consummation with an eternal song?
Here in this world, why can't we just work with what we've got?
The answers are here, don't tell me they're not
We have within ourselves the potential
To fulfill everything that's essential
Stop searching for unknowable truths and gods that only crave power
The results have been here all along
Just look at all our findings and towers
This is just our beginning, but how long can I wait?
For I'm not there yet
I'm still here, broken
Waiting for my cure to be created
I'm a stranger in this world
All my answers, have all faded
But beyond all our mundane routines
There lives an eternal truth
One from which love finds it home
Permeating your world
Igniting each cell with a fire
The fire's unseen, uncaused, but not at all unknown
With spiritual eyes, all these truths will be shown
Burning with a passion to seek out your heart
It's true, our unruly living is tearing us apart
From the inside out screaming 'mercy'
And at last we find what somehow we've always known
There's a pattern to the cosmos
But as to how, no one knows
It takes the faith of a child, and we can be free to behold
A fire that lights our whole life to be one
One where all in our path is awakened to the one
The one truth the one love the one God and he said,
'Don't worry my child, have you not read?
By faith you're made well, now go in peace and be healed'
Find peace from living aligned with his words
He's Jesus I tell you, he wont leave you unheard
Nor unhelped, for he came to bring life
And to set a fire on this earth
So you can receive a new birth
For then you too would by his wrath
Set ablaze everything in your path
All peoples and cultures and nations that hath
Been searching like you for something that lasts
And afterword you'll remain to be, a stranger in the world because of he
Jesus and his kingdom, of which you have part
No longer bound to this world, free to depart
