06. Dreams For Sale

Wake Up O Sleeper
by Cool Hand Luke


Out here itís live and learn
So you can rush and earn
A piece of this pie
Itís work today and rest tomorrow
But itís never tomorrow
Until we die
We strive to find contentment
And so we often miss it
When itís knocking at the door
Weíre too busy to open up
Busy with other stuff
So we go on as before

Like a pencil you hold dear
But you lost behind your ear
You wonít find it Ďcause itís already here
You canít see it with those
Eyes so tightly closed
Itís right here in front of your nose

What are we fighting for?
Are the spoils of war
All theyíre meant to be?
We strive for 401K
But we could make a trade
For eternity
Put down those papers
Put down that phone
Put down those fake diamonds and imposter cologne
Yes, thereís contentment
No, itís not free
You have to lay down your anxiety (I Peter 5:7)

If youíre trying to end change
Youíre wishing for the grave
This is the flux of things
In the rain you will get wet
And there is trouble yet (John 16:33)
This is how we pay our debt

Running past the thing you want
It was always here
You just closed your eyes and couldnít see it
Open your eyes
Youíll see itís here
But you canít chase this world and find contentment

It has a face, it has a name
Jesus Christ
What if I told you
You could live forever
If youíd lay it all down?
What if I told you
You could live forever?
Just lay it down
