Are we trying our hardest,
to be the best we can?
We don't know the problem.
We're tired of trying to solve them.
So we sit complacent,
and shut off our way of thinking.
We escape from reality,
but to the chain, we add another link.
What's holding us back,
from serving the one who set us free?
We need to step back,
and turn off this false reality.
I hate to turn it on,
and see a world gone wrong.
Why God's watching over me,
unlocking His wisdom and mercy.
Why can't we turn it off,
and set our minds on things above?
God, open our eyes,
to what you have in store for us.
Take these eyes of mine,
away from this unrighteousness.
Reveal to me, your straight and narrow path.
Break the chain of this unrighteous act.
Letting down our guards,
enslaved by images,
trading all our knowledge,
for the chance at entertainment.
Adding more frustration,
to the confusion of our minds.
Switching channel to channel,
never knowing what we're going to find.
