05. Prodigal

Testimony of Chase Caffey

Lyrics:

Have you ever been
The prodigal
Feeling like this
Glass half empty
With the other half bliss
Daytime dripping
In the nighttime gliss
Tryna stop time
On your wrist

Have you been the prodigal
Playin on the fence
Say that you ain’t going
Start to wonder what you missed
Outside holy
But the Inside split
Little bit counterfeit

……

I know someone in this room
That needs to hear it
Feel like someone tugging on ya
That’s the Holy Spirit
Heart start racing
But Ain’t no need to fear it
Yo I Prayed before I wrote this
So there’s power in these lyrics

Specifically I’m talking to the ones
That walked away
Used to come to church
Now you MIA
Living in the world
Thinking it’s a better way
Only come to find
You been blinded
worse
Led astray

Now you feeling jaded
Your Tolerance is higher
So it’s harder gettin faded
Lots a worldly knowledge
So you feeling educated
But Logic can’t compare
To one who made it

God told me to write my story down
I said “okay”
Barter with world for my crown
I said “No way”
Can’t be 50/50 with my sound
That’s a “bad day”
Hard to let the lord inside your heart
When it’s “Opaque”

what you think?
So What you really think?
Could the prodigal be someone
That you really wouldn’t think it is?
Take a look around
Notice any differences?
Never judge a book by its cover
Thats discriminative
….

High percentage of the church
Find it awkward to evangelize
Don’t know how interact
With strangers or a homeless guy
Ask them How they doin
And they tend to give the same reply
They won’t change their answer
Unless We ask them a second time

It’s relationship
Their looking for
Jesus made disciples
Then he told us we should make some more
You Never know the impact
going Door to door
Prodigals can come in different
Sizes colors shapes and forms

It could be the waiter
At ya table serving Greek food
It could be your neighbor
Who you barely ever speak to
It be your brother or your sister
Or your cousin or your aunty
Or granny
Shoot it could even be you

Hold up
Wait a second
What if the prodigal
Could be your own reflection?
Used to walk with god
Felt the warmth of his protection
But now you feeling lukewarm
Where’s Loose connection at?

I love the part up in the Bible
When it talks about the prodigal
Coming home sad
You’d think his father
Would be angry
Cause he gave him lots of money
And spent up all he had

What a picture perfect picture
Of the mercy of our father
When we should’a got the wrath
Instead he calls up all his buddies
Brings them to the celebration
Tells em’ slaughter up the calf

Have you ever been
The prodigal
Feeling like this
Glass half empty
With the other half bliss
Daytime dripping
In the nighttime gliss
Tryna stop time
On your wrist

Have you been the prodigal
Playin on the fence
Say that you ain’t going
Start to wonder what you missed
Outside holy
But the Inside split
Little bit counterfeit
