Lament

lyrics

They say you are jealous, they say you are kind
But the jealous part seems to win all the time
If you are so mighty, why do you break
The weak and the weary and steal what they make

They say you're forgiving, that you'll not forsake
But you punched me out when I made a mistake
I tried to find beauty in the mess that you made
But you just stayed angry and never forgave

Yes, I know you are great
But is a bad God, better than none?
How much more will it take
to undo the damage that you have done?
'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive
And the martyrs continue giving their lives
Oh the faithful never survive
Oh the faithful never survive

You're the almighty so I am afraid
you crushed me to pieces and stole what I made
If hopeless delusion is the righteous man's fate
I don't know how much more I can take

Yes, I know you are great
But is a bad God, better than none?
How much more will it take
to undo the damage that you have done?
'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive
And the martyrs continue giving their lives
Oh the faithful never survive
Oh the faithful never survive

God are you listening, please hear my cry
I don't really believe you're more cruel than you're kind
But I'm getting tired of repeating this line
"The faithful never survive"

Yes I know you are great
That you're a good God and you are love
How much more will it take
To undo the damage that I have done?
Please conquer these demons and the darkness inside
Shine your light on this cold heart of mine
Maybe my faith will survive
Maybe my faith will survive
Maybe my faith will survive
