VERSE 1

WONDERING THROUGH THIS TRAGIC MESS  

IT’S a WORLD THAT’s in DISTRESS

RUNNING EMPTY, WE KNOW NOT WHERE

IGNORING GOD, WITHOUT a CARE

* * * * *. *

FRUITLESS CHASING of FALLOW DREAMS

MANUFACTURING OUR OWN MISERY

WISHFUL THINKING TASTES SO SWEET

OUR SOURED SPIRITS of DISBELIEF 

* * * * *. *

WONDERING THROUGH THIS LIFE LIKE SHEEP

LIVING LIFE THAT’s INCOMPLETE

WE STOP TO STARE and THEN WE BLINK

WITH A FUTURE BLEAK

FIND SERENITY

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

VERSE 2           “CAPTIVE”

WILLING CAPTIVES, WE LOCK OUR CAGE

CHASING LUSTS WITH MINDLESS RAGE

LOCKED INSIDE, THERE is NO ESCAPE

SATISFACTION is HARD to ARRANGE

* * * * * * *

LIKE a RAT, WANDERING THROUGH a MAZE

DIRECTION LOST, THERE IS NO ESCAPE

The WALL IS THERE, BEHIND the DRAPE

The TRAP is SET, in THIS TRAGIC GAME

* * * * * * * *

WITH CONFIDENCE, the BLIND LEAD the BLIND

CORRECTNESS RULES, SO CRUEL and UNKIND

IN BUBBLES BUILT WE TRY TO HIDE 

DO ENOUGH JUST TO SURVIVE                                       

The PRISONERS CAGED, I’ll FIND ESCAPE

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

VERSE 3           “AFFLICTED”

FAMISHED SOULS WITH HUNGRY HEARTS

DODGING TRUTH, DECEPTION’s DARTS

NOTHING CERTAIN, YOUR TRUST BETRAYED

POISONED BY the THINGS WE CRAVE

* * * * * * *

IN a WORLD THAT’s GONE ASKEW

WE DRINK the BLUES, a BITCH’s BREW

The SAME OLD, SAME OLD, SOLD AS“NEWS”

FASCINATED, WE ENJOY the ABUSE

* * * * * * *

STARVING at a SEEMING FEAST

FEEDING OUR INNER BEASTS

SPREADING OUR HUMAN DISEASE

WITH DISGUST and DISMAY

I’M RELIEVED TO CLAIM

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

                     VERSE 4             “RELEASE”

JESUS COME and SET US FREE

BRING the KEYS OF OUR RELEASE

GREEN CARDS FOR ETERNITY

A BORDER CROSSING TO DESTINY

* * * * * * *

IN the BEGINNING, GOD’s WORD SPOKE

IN the END, HE’LL FIX WHAT’s BROKE

OVER THERE, WE’LL BE MADE COMPLETE

IN a PLACE, WHERE DEEP CALLETH DEEP

* * * * * * *

SATISFACTION FOR HUNGRY HEARTS

GOD WILL MAKE A BRAND NEW START

CHOSEN WITH a DIVINE MARK

The FUTURE IS NEAR

THOUGH NOT HERE

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

VERSE 5

OUR HOME LIES

BEYOND THIS MIST

GOD’S MOUNTAIN HIGH

OUR WAITING WISH

* * * * * * *

AMPHIBIOUS CREATURES

FLESH BORN IN TIME

AN ETERNAL DESTINY

HIS SPARK DIVINE

* * * * * * * *

THIS WORLD’S CORSE COURSE

HIS WAY SUBLIME

WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN

WE’RE ALL PRISONERS in THIS CAGE

* * * * * * * *

LIKE SKINNER’s RATS PLACED in a MAZE

WE SEE the NEED TO FIND ESCAPE

WE SEE the WALL BEHIND the DRAPE

HIS SALVATION SURE, WE FIND GOD’s GRACE

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

* * * * * * *

The BLIND LEAD the BLIND

IN a WORLD, “CORRECT” and UN-KIND

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

VERSE 7

JESUS WILL SET US FREE

HE’LL BRING the KEY TO OUR RELEASE

GOD’S PLAN – IT IS COMPLETE

HE SIMPLY SAID – FOLLOW ME

* * * * * * *

SATISFACTION FOR A HUNGRY HEART

GOD WILL MAKE A BRAND NEW START

CITIZENS of a HEAVENLY LAND

A CITY MADE BY DIVINE HANDS

CALLED TO BE IN HIS DIVINE BAND

THIS WORLD IN NOT MY HOME
