"ALTERNATIVE MAN"

Verse 1
A pitch-black ravine
Is where my soul lay trapped, confined.
A monster machine's
Tentacles wrapped around my mind.

I was numb,
And though I put up a fight,
I was about to succumb
To it's paralyzing bite. --

Verse 2
And I cried, "Give me
Somethin' outside of this box,
Somethin' unorthodox
To blow these locks off,
To knock these socks off."

Chorus 1
Alternative Man! --
Alternative Man! --

---

Verse 3
When they speak of man's glory,
They tell me I've got to keep my pride.
I look to Your Story,
It's where humility resides.

Brutal enemies ,
Looked like You let them take you out,
But it was saving me
That You were passionate about!

Chorus 2
Alternative Man! --
Alternative Man! --

Verse 4
Rebel to the core!
Jesus, I can relate,
Can't take any more
Of this system of hate!


Chorus 3
Alternative Man!
Alternative Man!

I wanna know Your plan,
Follow close as I can
I wanna join Your band
I wanna be Your hands
Your hands
