    Sprinting towards the place of ultimate slaughter

    Searching in empty wells for HIS living water

    Dying of thirst negating to seek the true source

    Wondering why we were subjected to hell’s course

    Living a wretched life with no signs of remorse

    Pedal to the metal, full throttle, maximum force

    Leaving residue of sin past, present and future

    Scared to grow up and begin to finally mature

    Instead we matriculate from one fad to the next

    Wondering why it all drives our being to be vexed

    For secretly our soul knows for whom it was created

    Yearning for completion even as it been desecrated

    How long shall we ignore our heart’s true desire?

    Deteriorating in the obscure with an darkened fire

    Travailing in insane chaotic courses to nowhere

    When will we come to our self in the pig pens of there?

    Realizing in our Father’s safe haven is where we belong

    Stopping the record mid-track and beginning a new song

    A refrain of repentance that leaves a sweet fragrance

    That catches the Father’s nostrils not by happenstance

    For He’s been patiently awaiting our homecomings

    Fatted calf and all, waiting to pardon our shortcomings

    Restoring us back to our perfectly appointed place

    Just as soon as we arise from this tragic disgrace
