07. Joy in Pain

by Critical Mass


For so long my life was good
But suddenly, it hit the fan
My wife decides to push eject
My kids call me the bogeyman
My salaryís on life support
But you should see the lawyer's haul
Speeding down the road of life
I ran myself into a wall
Iím looking for joy through all the pain
Iím grasping for hope in the pouring rain
Just when I think it can't get worse
I'm crushed by yet another curse
But I choose to see
That pain is weakness leaving me

I came into this world
With nothing to my name
It looks like Iíll be leaving soon
With pretty much the same
Nothing seems worth doing
Where's my Blessed ending now
God give me the peace, I pray.
Just enough to last the day
I may be feeling beat up
And running out of luck
Itís time to offer it up
Let Grace fill my cup

Behind the Song:
Marine Corps legend, Chesty Puller, coined the phrase ďpain is weakness leaving the body.Ē I relate to its meaning; as painful as my circumstances were, I took solace in my personal growth. These words are the inspiration behind the lyrics in the next song. Thanks to my good friend Eric, who supplied many of the phrases in this song!
Check out the new album from Lawrence Jamal!
