Going Public
by Newsboys



 

Thumbs out on a desert road I am told
Leads to nowhere.
Any shade is as good as the next
If your shadow doesn't go there.

Week seven: Did you really assume
I'd find some solace from the letter in your room?
Next life, could you kindly refrain
From throwing yourself at the mercy of a train?

Silence all, nobody breathe.
How in the world could you just leave?
You promised you would
Silence that evil with good.

Hear me out, I have the floor.
I'll give you my tears, I'll listen more.
You promised you would
Overcome evil with good.

Maybe this world is a barren place for a soul
Prone to get lost.
But heaven still hounds from the smallest sounds
To the cries of the storm-tossed.
Week nine: I am writing in the sand
Any little clue that could help me understand.
Every whispered secret, every muffled sigh,
Every half-truth that was added to a lie.

Silence all, nobody move.
I've got to know now what you hoped to prove.
You promised you would
Silence that evil with good.

Shame feeds guilt, guilt needs release.
You took it to God,
You made your peace
And swore that you would
Overcome evil with good.

Every old demon playing back the crime.
If they needed blood, I'd have gladly given mine.
A child of the Kingdom; still an invalid.
Forgive her, please, Father.
She don't know what she did.

Silence all, now go to sleep.
The water's free, the well is deep.
How can we return
That which we never could earn?

And God, I long to see her face.
We haven't a hope
Beyond Your grace.
I know that You will
Overcome evil
For good.
