I’m playing outta position, I feel like I’m missing
The whole point of this game
I’m tired of consuming, this daily illusion
It’s gonna drive me insane
But once in a while the veil gets lifted
And I see the other side
Aint no ticket tape parade waiting by the gate
Unless I work on the inside

Chorus:
We’re so caught up in our homes, our lives, our things
Magazines and television closing all the lids
There’s a whole world out there
Work to be done
C’mon everybody, Come on, Come on
C’mon everybody, Come on, Come on

My family is waiting, but my time is taken
With so many things in my life
So inconsequential, technological ventures
Distractions that mess with my mind
But once in a while I try to resist
O everything coming my way
Gives a feeling inside, makes me realize
I get down on my knees and pray

Chorus
Bridge:
Lord, Oh Lord
You are Peace, with You is Peace
Oh My Lord, Help me raise my eyes to the sky
