As I lie back and look at the sky,
I have to ask myself why?
Why do people do the things they do?
With indifference to how they hurt you.
They only think about their own desires,
And leave us to setting fires.
To grow up, filled with pain,
And anger that goes unsaid.
Anger turned inward,
Endangering my life,
And all who stand in the way,
When it blows the world away,
Will know that I have been hurt.
When Jesus returns, he’ll raise the dead first,
And take the rest of us
Up into the clouds.
