To be a survivor in this Amazing Race
with the need for speed,
you need God’s Grace.
And if you’re desperate like housewives
watching Days of Our Lives,
you can’t cope without hope
(and that’s not on a soap).
If you’re looking to Oprah or Dr. Phil,
you can shop non-stop or pop a pill,
but the void won’t fill
and the pain won’t kill
until you love the One that hung on a hill.
Kicking back in your lazy boy easy chair
watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,
Nah, you’re not gonna find it there!
No American Idol or Council Tribal
has the final answer that will satisfy ya.
C. S. I. ain’t got a clue.
S.V.U. don’t know what to do.
Not the E.R. or the O.C.,
nothing on a CD, TV, DVD or MP3 can save you and me.
CNN has got no Good News
here’s the headline: you must choose.
It’s not a simple life Paris Hilton,
It’s treading on thin ice living in sin.
You can be an apprentice for Donald Trump
or eat Fear Factor fast food from a dump.
You can be a heavy hitter
or “Wheel of Fortune” winner
or a Fox News no spin spinner
or flat sinner,
but you better check this life that your livin’
and make sure your sins are forgiven.
I bet ya 50 cent Elvis done come and went,
and eventually every Black-eyed-pea, Gwen Stefani, P-Diddy and Britney,
Every wanna-be on M.T.V.
with their Icy Bling,
every Dixie Chick that sings –
they’re all gonna see the King of kings.
I don’t care if you’re J-Lo, Leno or Bono.
One thing you gotta know:
some day your gonna die, Bro.
Then, where are you gonna go?
Hey, I’m not talking some punk junk that is irrelevant
like your Grandma’s church from way back when.
It’s not some preacher feature on T.B.N.
that you need to be liking or listening.
The real superstar is Jesus Christ.
He’s the Way, the Truth and the Life.
One day He’s gonna split the sky.
He is the brightest Light and the highest High.
So what I came to say and what I’m telling you
is don’t buy that stupid stuff they be selling ya –
It’s all designed to fill your head
and waste your space until you’re dead.
Here’s the bottom line of my rhyme:
Give your life to God
while there is still time.
