    yeah... they say the just walk by faith
    and not by sight
    and in my sight
    my world my plight
    my struggles even my fights
    eyes on God and flesh on desires
    and I refrain
    saying maintain Michael maintain...
    but most don't want to hear me
    clearly it is far too easy to
    remain in what little zones of comfort
    and these eyes like so many before me
    have seen truthes
    that undo the world around you
    you don't want to know just how
    deep and how far the evil really goes
    don' t want to feel these woes
    of awareness
    bliss in the eyes of the careless
    and some see the evils
    even the webwork of motives
    that interlink
    even the puppet strings
    tugged and pulled
    directing the limbs of the
    unwitting unaware and the fools
    most don't know
    just how deep and how far
    the evil goes
    trust that the lies come
    in well practiced layers
    and souls are sold even as I breathe
    but why should you believe
    you don't have to believe
    the rivers I've been sold up
    don't have to see the wolves I've
    been thrown to
    don't have to see the extent of
    those who have done a world
    of dirt and just how far they
    go to cover their behinds
    see I look and I find
    that I have no proof
    and they say the just live by faith
    and not by sight
    and you don't have to believe
    me at all
    but with outstretched hands
    I fall to my knees and plead
    that you trust there is a God
    and He has a wrath ready
    for the whole planet
    even if you don't understand it
    know that He demands
    repentence and a returning to Him
    know He is demanding
    that each and every soul
    truly seek His face
    with all your heart
    with all your soul
    even with every ounce of strength
    that you have
    trust that you must prevail
    within yourself
    to right your every wrong
    no matter what the cost
    because as surely as I breathe
    the alternative is a living hell
    worse than anything you've seen
    and I know a God
    who talks to me of pestilence
    and the sword and of famine
    and suffering untold
    a God who speaks of His anger
    and how His anger can devour
    a universe
    much more easily a soul
    and I know a God provoked
    by generations of evil
    by billions of souls
    know then the power of prayer
    and how it has slowed
    what is sure to come
    and without God
    or outside of God's will
    without knowing and obeying
    His Son
    there is no place in the universe
    simply no place one can run
    and He talks to me of souls
    begging for death
    pleading for the boulder to fall
    upon them
    He talks to me of parents
    eating and devouring their young
    He talks to me of absolutely
    horrifying things
    from His lips His absolute reality
    but most ain't ready to hear
    and some reject in fear
    the truth of what's to come
    sure as their is a sun on the horizon
    please search your soul
    and know
    that Jesus is the only Salvation
    even in the land of the living
    even when the living would rather die
    truly turn to the Lord God of Heaven
    return to the Most High
    search your own souls
    I'm sure you already know why
    and they say the just walk by faith
    and not by sight
    tell me
    what do you see
    and what do you believe
