  • Another day of desolation
    or is it just that I don't care?

    This self imposed isolation
    ain't getting' me no where.

    Getting hard to wake up in the morning,
    getting hard to remember that I care...


    I'm finding mundane occupation
    just to fill the empty days...

    I never find my concentration
    unfocused in this jumbled haze.

    Getting hard to wake up in the morning,
    getting hard to remember that I care...


    I know I should be thankful
    for the many gifts you bring
    so much beauty all around me
    Lord, you give me songs to sing.

    And every good thing in my life
    is all because of you.
    So why can't the Holy Spirit
    stop my heart from feeling blue?


    I see this world's collaboration
    with the greed and lust and hate.

    And I'm filled with desperation,
    and this pain just won't abate.

    Sometimes I pray you'll come and take me,
    before I fall into their fate.


    'Cause my brothers and my sisters,
    think they found another light
    they can't see the truth around them
    they're just falling into night.

    And I know your loving mercy
    will bring them back to you.
    So why can't the Holy Spirit
    stop my heart from feeling blue?


    Another day of desolation
    or is it just that I don't care?

    This self imposed isolation
    ain't getting' me no where.

    Getting hard to wake up in the morning,
    getting hard to remember that I care...
