    i think we should bring back prayer in schools, our country is falling apart
    we need a lotta work, but that would be a good start
    war with other countries, our allies turning their back
    when we had God in the forefront, we were on the right track
    it's not as if everyone has to convert to christianity or become "Jesus freaks"
    just put God back in our system, and positive change will be in reach
    i'm realizing what the emptiness i feel in my soul really is about
    i didn't feel this way when i had God in my life, why did i let him get out?

    i don't like pushing religion on people, but our fore-fathers had it right
    they involved him in everything they did,
    from prayer in school, prayer at work, and prayer at night
    and teaching God to their kids
    somewhere between then and now, we lost sight of who gave us all we got
    and i think we'll have to pay the price,
    man thinks he can survive and flourish without God but i think not
    we need more Christ in our life

    He is my father, He is my light, He is my soul, He is my home.

    With out him I am nothin. You are so right. Man have turned their backs on him. But you have'nt. God forgive us all.
    We have just been reality checked.
