Up to my ears in bitter tears Can't believe I've sunk this low Can't believe I've sunk this low As I walk the plankton Inner sanctum Got outta Dodge Sailed on a bon-less Bon voyage You said North I headed South Tossed overboard Good Lord that's a really large mouth
I'm sleeping with fishes here In the belly of the whale I'm highly nutritious here In the belly of the whale Bad food lousy atmosphere I don't wanna bellyache How long is this gonna take?
Woke up this morning kinda blue Thinking through that age-old question How to exit a whale's digestion? It might behoove me to be heaved Head out like a human comet Hey guys you might not wanna rhyme with comet
I'm sleeping with fishes here In the belly of the whale I'm highly nutritious here In the belly of the whale I'm ready to reappear I don't wanna bellyache Lord how long's this gonna take?
End times they come rolling around Enzymes they come breaking us down to the core The good Lord grants we all get a second chance
I'm one of the dishes here In the belly of the whale They say I'm delicious here In the belly of the whale Lord please make him chuck it all It's a gut call In the belly of the whale
I'm in the belly of the whale In the belly of the whale I'm in the belly In the belly of the whale I'm in the belly of the whale In the belly of the whale I'm in the belly
In the belly of the whale In an underwater jail It's a tight squeeze It's a-gettin' to me But it's roomier Than the tail Hey sailor Got my flow free Like a salmon to the sea From the LA Symphony I'm a paddleboat Paddlin' in their wake A fake free-styler But my unemployment pays I'm avoiding cliches Like whale of a tale stale Or you can't keep A good man down 'Cause you can And I've been there man But I've been expectorated I'm elated! I'm free like Willie! Happy Day! Oops That's a bit of a cliche
Time after time It’s all the same I forget who I am I take Your place The bigger I get The harder I fall I act like I don’t need You at all And one by one My bridges burn Until I’ve nowhere left to turn But it’s You who’s right there for me And it’s You who writes my story I need an earthquake To shake me until it breaks me down I’m giving You everything My pride’s crashing to the ground Shatter my walls Let my kingdom fall I don’t wanna wear this crown no more My heart is Yours to take It’s You that can save me It’s You that can shake me I need an earthquake I need an earthquake I’ve lived on the edge For way too long Walking a tightrope on my own When out of the dark I heard You call Now, into Your hands I surrender all So take my heart and shape it up To build me into what You want ‘Cause it’s You who sees right through me You’re the only one that moves me I lift my hands I lift my hands high My heart is open My heart is open wide Show me life Show me a new life Where all that’s left Where all that’s left is You and I
What’s a man to do When every dream he’s chased comes true All the trophies on a wall Are gonna lose their shine and fall What’s a stage played on If we don’t give You every song All the cheers and the applause In the arena they’ll be lost What will they think about the things I did What will they say about the life I’ve lived I want them to say He’s the one whose faith didn’t fade When everything crashed, he didn’t cave He never lost his awe and wonder The one that kept me from going under And he ran a good race That’s what I want, what I want, I want them to say What if they all know my name But never see beyond my face A pointless legacy There so much more inside of me He fights for the weak Has arms that reach out for Jesus Every word that he speaks Helps me to believe there’s a God that loves us Oh Lord, I want YOU to say
This is my story, this is my song I have a hope that’s stronger then the dust I’m standing on This is my anchor, my cornerstone This is the anthem I’ll be singing, till the Kingdom comes I am committed, I’m not ashamed I pledge my allegiance to Jesus, My King I am committed, got nothing to hide I’m not giving up, not selling out, I’m in this for life I am committed, to Christ I am committed, to Christ For all that He’s given, The price that He paid Forever we’re freed by the power of His unshakable grace For all of His children, His daughters and sons This is the anthem we’ll keep singing from the top of our lungs To the One who gave it all To the One who fights for us To the One who took my suffering In the name of love This is our message Our battlecry So stand up and sing with me I am committed
