Radios on while I’m packing’ for the days ahead
Way back I’m thinking’ how decades ago I made my bed
Laid in it like a lazy man on his way to napping’ away the day and wasting what He foolishly neglects to spend
my face--shone off the one that’s strangling’ my wrist--a race
against time and space that seems limitless
I been hacking’ up junk for days
and I couldn’t keep pace with penitence
I wonder if my King will remember this?
how I’ve made disgraceful memories and seen the same type of images
heavy loads like duced diapers
I better pack a noose in case the truth about me gets too frightening
bruised psyche. . .cuz who is like me?
unredeemable, abominable— boos hype me
so as I shove off, I toss my load on my shoulder
and bid fair well to all my loved ones
to my beautiful wife, have a beautiful life
and please serve Him well, to my one son
solemn faces all around
I would stay but look at all the time I wasted, pain I caused
not to mention how I’ve been devastated by
never savoring the grace of God.

These are my dark halls
with talking walls
telling me that there’s a cliff I should be walking off
If not for Calvary, I couldn’t walk at all.
If not for Calvary, I couldn’t walk at all.
