    I know you just blowing off stem
    But Houston I think we have a problem
    I’m about to pull ya card like a magic trick
    For I can’t sit hear silently through one more lick
    What kind of friend would I be if I see you bleeding
    And leave you just like are, silently dying and needing
    I know to mortal eye it seems that you are on cloud nine
    But I knew you before you choose to leave Christ behind
    What happened friend that you path has become so diverted
    What did you run in to that got you living so perverted
    Something caught you eye and made you lose focus
    But whatever it is you gotta know it just hocus pocus
    Glittering like gold today to entice you eternal soul
    Only to begin to decay soon as it’s got ya in its hold
    Brother, you are flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone
    So Ingrained in my heart that I can’t leave you alone
    Come on back, brother, I know you still hear His call
    He is here to restore you from your life changing fall
    We are all just sinner saved by God’s amazing grace
    So there is no condemnation or shame in this place
