GOD PERSON 

Hey, God person 
What you create today? 
and where the hell were you yesterday 
Telling me I would be more successful 
and happier being your way 
But I'm not complaining 

What are you going to do about the starving? 
Will you bother to show them how? 
They don't have the donations 
I have to offer 

On the last day 
When God asks you, 
How are you going to say? 
What mountains have you moved? 
What storm have you tamed? 
Have you helped others 
or have you just helped yourself? 
Receiving fame from the fools who follow you 
They're just as blind as you 

I'm not understanding why. 
People aren't watching clouds pass by 
Birds flying high 
Trees don't grow 
When they bow down 
to people like you. 
Veins of the path lie beneath the skin, 
If people would just look within. 
The grass we walk on 
Without caring to see 
Can show us about you and me. 
Look eye to eye, 
and see every side of a round world. 
Each truth has a different color, 
All colors feel differently, 
Each feeling has a path 
Going the same direction 
Reaching up. 
We can reach out 
Learning what it's all about. 
Darkness is seeing your own hunger, 
And not caring about another. 
With hearts shut off and turned inward, 
We can't look at the pain of another 
Without understanding. 
We just hurt each other, 
But you are taken care of 
Aren't you? 
With your heart drunken with all their attention 
Your pockets filled with all their money 
You're a happy successful man 
At peace, giving yourself to God 
You're rewarded for sharing with us the plan 
Bullshit 
you have only given yourself to vanity man 
Looking up to you to fill their hunger 
They're too blind to see the scam 

I'm not one to criticize 
God knows I'm no perfect man 
But I do claim to understand 
You want to follow Jesus 
Give all you own to the poor 
and wear the shoes of the homeless 
Jesus had nothing 
and showed us everything 
He truly belonged to the Father 
Didn't have to bother asking for anything 
Without the help of broadcasting equipment 
His words reached around the world 
Under many tons of pressure 
He sweat tears of blood 
He did 
But you don't 
He cared 
You won't 
To claim you follow him 
Isn't fair 
You want to help 
Stop taking our money 
Stop putting us down 
Jesus didn't 
And you shouldn't 
Without knowing the name of the son of man 
Buddha followed his words more than you 
Won't you be surprised when Jesus says to you 
I never knew you 

Blessed is the one who tries to follow the way of Jesus 
But isn't always able to 
Cursed is the one who tells us to 
But doesn't 
Forgiving us of our sins 
Who's going to forgive you? 

Jesus had no credit account 
Retirement fund 
or limousine to take him about 
Without all that 
You say he saved the world 
or did he just save you? 
Preaching his words 
You've obtained all that 
When are you going to give it back? 
There's only so much to go around 
Why should you have all that? 
Who's going to save the poor from you? 
We don't need more people like you. 

Do you really know the truth? 
Do you care 
Do you really want to help 
Doing the work of the gospel? 
Stop your preaching 
Pay your taxes like Jesus told you to 
Get down here 
and help out 

Have you ever wondered why Jesus was a friend 
to your sinners? 
Why he was an enemy 
to you? 
Instead of fessing-up 
You had to try to shut him up 
After you had him nailed up 
He asked the Father to forgive you 
Even one of your sinners 
At his side 
Jesus was not ashamed 
He even took him 
With him 
Judge yourself honestly 
You must think you're better then me 
Jesus didn't see it that way 
Why should you? 

What is the truth? 
To see each other eye-to-eye 
What is the plan? 
To understand 
What is the way? 
To give each other 
a helping hand 

Does it hurt you 
for me 
to put you down? 
Don't do it to me 
Eye to eye 
is the way 
Together 
We can all make it be 

By sharing 
We are taking 
all the hurt, pain and hunger away 

It could be a good day 
Seeing the grass we walk on 
Seeing every side of a round world 
You will even see God around 
Feeling each color of every truth 
God will speak right to us 
We will find everybody doing the same thing 
differently 
for the same reason 
As God guides us 
As God guides every other living thing 
that surrounds us 
Being back in the Garden of Eden 
The Kingdom of Heaven 
Jesus taught was within 
will now be on earth 
as it is in heaven 

By reaching in 
We can reach out 
By sharing what is within us 
about 
We will take it out
