lyrics

We're going to war and we say God's on our side
That the enemy had better run and hide
Cause we've got the power and we know we're right
We're gonna pray that God's gonna bless
But if we're praying for own health and wealth
We won’t hear from God we’ll just hear from ourselves

I am longing for good news
Not selfish half truths
Not wars to end all wars
But peace that's been restored
When we will all be one, in the Father, Spirit, Son
And pray your will be done, your kingdom come

Break out your tools of politics and philosophy
Of democracy and theology
We’ll build him just how we want him to be
Domesticate until he thinks and looks like
And validates everything I believe
until he’s on a leash that I can lead

What if the enemy is not just in a cave
What if there’s a terrorist in you and me
Then who is gonna save, who is gonna save, not a God that we have made
