The Finite Beings

Lyrics

 


Is it selfish to want to make it and pay all of our bills?
To be successful…
Is it selfish to want the attention, to need the affection of the listener?
To want the credit so you know that we said it?
So we said it.

I’m that passionate cry of a human that’s tried
Time and time again while I’m fallen inside
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?

What are you trying to teach me?
Why is there so much hurt and pain?
What is left to gain?
How long will I have to wait?

Is it prideful to have expectations that I really don’t deserve?
I am sinful, shameful.
I am hopeful that He paid for it
All of my debt…It was selfless
And I’ve been fed it so I thought that I’d share it
Hope your feeling it…

This passionate cry of a human that’s tried
Stumbling in his steps while he’s fallen inside
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?
Would you help me be the man I want to be?
Would you help me see that there’s so much more than me?
