03. Dancing With The Dinosaur

Heaven In The Real World
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Once upon a time not so long ago in a land not so far away
Right and wrong were not quite so hard to know
And black and white was not so gray
Times have changed and now it seems
Conscience has gone the way of the dinosaur
But I believe it's still alive and well today
In the hearts of those who will stand up and say

I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I gotta keep on dancing
I gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

There's a banner waving saying tolerance will set you free it's the latest thing
While the consequences it leaves behind are like a ball and chain
But there's a voice in everyone called conscience
That's been around since God created man
And as we learn to listen to its whispering
We'll find the greatest freedom when we stand up and sing

I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I gotta keep on dancing
I gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

Right is right and wrong is wrong just like it has been all along
We cannot sit by and see conscience become history
So come on, get up and dance
Dance this dance with me

written by Steven Curtis Chapman c1994 Sparrow Song (a div. of The Sparrow Corp.)/Peach Hill Songs (BMI)

Behind the Song:
(Acts 24:16; 2 Cor. 1:12; Hebrews 13:18)
