       ÒREALITYÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

REALITY IS KNOWING WHEN YOUÕRE LOST

 

THEN FINDING GOD TO GET BACK ON TRACK AT ANY COST

 

REALITY IS ASKING GOD TO HELP YOU

 

WHEN YOU COULDNÕT TAKE IT NO MORE BUT NO ONE FELT YOU

 

REALITY IS FIGHTING NOT TO GIVE IN TO SIN

 

AND THE TRICKS OF THE DEVIL EVER AGAIN

 

REALITY IS LIFEÕS NOT ALWAYS EASY

 

AND DOESNÕT ENTERTAIN ALL THE TIME LIKE SHOWS ON T.V.

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

THE OTHER DAY I WAS TALKING TO AVERAGE JOE

 

HE SAID YO DEREK, THERE ARE SOME THINGS IÕD LIKE TO KNOW

 

IÕVE BEEN THINKING AND LATELY IÕVE HAD A CHANGE OF HEART

 

I WANNA BE SAVED BUT DO I NEED FAME TO START

 

I SAID THEREÕS NO 30 SECONDS OF FAME REQUIRED

 

JUST COME AS YOU ARE AND LIKE THE APPRENTICE, YOUÕRE HIRED

 

WHEN YOU CONFESS YOUR SINS AND CLAIM CHRIST IS LORD

 

HEÕLL GIVE YOU SOMETHING GREATER JOE MILLIONAIRE CANÕT AFFORD

 

RICH GUY, POOR GUY, NO MATTER LAST OR FIRST

 

HE LOOKS FOR WEAKEST LINKS AS WELL AS A STAR SEARCH

 

HEÕS NOT A RESPECTOR OF PERSONS LIKE SOME BELIEVE

 

AND I GUARANTEE HIS LOVE CONNECTION YOU WILL RECEIVE

 

JUST DO AN EXTREME MAKEOVER AND SEEK HIS FACE

 

GETTING SAVED BEFORE YOU DIE IS YOUR SOULS AMAZING RACE

 

BECAUSE HEÕS COMING BACK LIKE A GROOM CLAIMING HIS BRIDE

 

LIKE THE BACHELOR, ARE YOU WORTHY, YO HEÕLL DECIDE

 

ITÕS NOT A SCARE TACTIC, DONÕT LET SATAN ABUSE YOU

 

BY MAKING YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE THE BIGGEST LOSER

 

BECAUSE YOUR SOUL TO CHRIST MAKES A FINE MATE

 

IF YOU LOVE HIM WITHOUT SEEING HIM LIKE A BLIND DATE

 

UNCONDITIONALLY, LIKE FOR LOVE OR MONEY

 

WITHOUT HIM MY LIFEÕS A SITCOM BUT IT AINÕT FUNNY

 

BUT WITH HIM I MUST ADMIT THAT HEÕS THE BOMB

 

FOR CHANGING MY UGLY DUCKLING LIFE INTO THE SWAN

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

HE SAID HIS LIFE WASNÕT SIMPLE OR SURREAL

 

BECAUSE SIN IN HIS LIFE STARTED BEING THE 5TH WHEEL

 

HE SAID SATAN WAS A FEAR FACTOR, HE HAD HIM PUNKÕD

 

MANY TESTS WOULD COME HIS WAY BUT HE ALWAYS WOULD SEEM TO FLUNK

 

I SAID SATANÕS DREAM JOB IS TO KEEP TRYING

 

TO KEEP SIN IN YOUR LIFE SO YOUÕLL STAY ON TEMPTATION ISLAND

 

SINCE THE BEGINNING, HEÕS BEEN DIGGING LIKE THE MOLE

 

TO RUN THE SHOW LIKE JOE SCHMOE OR ANNA NICOLE

 

BUT MY BIG BROTHER JESUS ALLOWED US TO TRADE SPACES

 

FROM LIVING A SINFUL LIFE TO ONE THAT COULD LEAVE NO TRACES

 

THE WORLDS AS WELL AS THE AMERICAN IDOL

 

CAUSE IN THE REAL WORLD YOUR ROAD RULES IS YOUR BIBLE

 

 BUT WHILE YOU WERE OUT, YOUR SINNING BECAME LIVER

 

UNTIL YOU CAME TO GRIPS THAT CHRIST WAS YOUR SOUL SURVIVOR

 

AND WHEN HE CAME IN YOUR LIFE YOU BECAME AN HEIR

 

SO ASK A SINNER WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE

 

AND TELL THEM TO RACE TO THE ALTAR AT FULL THROTTLE

 

CAUSE HEÕS CONSIDERED MORE THAN AMERICAÕS TOP MODEL

 

AND LET HIM CLEAN OUT YOUR CRIB, MEANING YOUR SOUL

 

CAUSE IN THIS DOG EAT DOG WORLD YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

YOU CANÕT AFFORD TO BE THE LAST COMIC TO STAND

 

CAUSE AFTER HE SEARCHES FOR SOULS HEÕS MAKING THE BAND

 

LOOKING FOR PERFECT MATCHES WHO ARENÕT SCARED TO GO TELL

 

THAT HEÕS THE ONLY WAY TO PARADISE HOTEL
