"DEBRIEFING"

Verse 1

Piercing through the silence

Man’s perfected science leaves our coasts.

These terrorist’s acts of violence

We must do our part to fight this

With war, the only means that we know.

How can a God of peace, a God of love turn to such a monster?

Creatures of violence; how can I believe in Him anymore?

 

Another human sacrifice, “you boys are just like Jesus Christ”,

Blood that drips from my hands, the soldier lying in the sand,

Who can really understand? Whoa, whoa

And who’s to say that I should live and he should die?

How can this be justified as just another act of Christ?

“They are wrong and we are right.

We’ll make’m see things through our eyes.

As our glorious colors fly. Whoa, whoa.

Bridge

I sit here in disillusionment, what is the solution,

Is God a child’s illusion, are we proving evolution.

Man consumed and ruthless, the faith from my youth has been

Shaken to the roots and I’m tired of excuses.

I cry for you, for you I cry I cry for you my God.

Verse 2

I’ve been to many churches, and I’ve sat through many worships

All of them support this; they say that it’s our service,

They say; “God is oh so for this, if you read the laws of Moses;

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, if you shoot than I will shoot.”

But Jesus said another truth; “These laws are no longer meant for you.”

Chorus 1

Have you not heard and have you not read

Those who would curse you bless them instead.

Love your friends, hate your enemies, you’ve heard it’s been said

But I give to you a new testament.

The simplest you’ll hear, yet the hardest to live.

Love God and your brother as you would want of him.

 

Verse 3

Can we see through all this blindness, will we one day rewrite this when we know?

I see so much faith that’s spineless, defend this and define this

Can simple love and kindness end these woes?

Your answers seem so childlike, so simplistic, abandon our own intellect

Our pride and what we glory in, throw this all to the wind.

Embrace faith for fact and cut the strings whoa, whoa.

 

The lie of evolution, putting faith in simple stupidness

Creation by immortal hands, outside what we understand

Minds of man can’t comprehend,

Like who can count the grains of sand, the stars that shine their light on man.

A Creator with a great design asking only love of man

How could there be a simpler plan, forsake your pride and let Him in.

 

Chorus 2

Have you not heard and have you not read

Those who would curse you bless them instead.

The simplest you’ll hear, yet the hardest to live.

Love God and your brother as you would want of him.

 

Verse 4

If creation has no mystery and we all just exist to be

Than life would just be mockery, a circle spinning just to tease.

But we are weaves in tapestry, part of His plan—what I believe.

And one day clearly we will see if we the leaves will trust the tree,

Like the waves that thrust the sea. Whoa, whoa.

 

I cry for you, for you I cry.

I cry for you, for you I cry.

For you, for you I cry.

I cry for you, for you I cry.
I cry for you, for you I cry.

I cry for you, for you I cry for you.
