Sometimes I don’t act the way I’m supposed to do
That’s when I get scared wondering when I’m being true
Getting sick & tired of the same old smiling faces
Running out of people to like, stuck in the same places
What did you think? This was the easy way out?
What did you think following the Lord is really all about?
Did you think we just got our daily holy kiss?
And no failures and frustrations make me sick of this?
Sometimes I get home with scum all over me
That’s when I look in the mirror disbelievingly
Finding out how much God loves me every single day
But I’m always finding out the hardest way
Trapped by my intellect, where do I go from here?
Just turn off the lights & go to sleep without a prayer
Somewhere someone’s nails are ripped out for the Lord I take so lightly
And with each stumble & guilty pang satan grows more & more mighty
Now here I sit like a useless rug on the floor
Waiting for the hand that pulls me to heaven’s door
Sometimes a sin is all I need to get me thinking right
A failures all it takes to get me back into the fight


from Hardcore for Jesus (recordings 1985​-​1989), released October 6, 2006
