I lived my life like an actor on stage so I'll stop acting.
Without Christ in my life I'm in a plane with no captain,
No parachute when I'm crashing,
Because I live for excitement and action like speeding in a car without my seat belt fasten.
And if I'm napping I'm probably relaxing at night in the mist of assassins.
Spirits clapping, celebrating and laughing and attacking my spirit for their own satisfaction,
But without Christ I can't even shout his name to erase the distraction.
Satan kingdom building and never collapsing.
I know in the dark roads I'll probably choose to reap what I sow,
And let sin slice my life like fractions with no one to make me whole.
So I'll probably run around with a hole in my soul.
And when my nightmare shows and began to grow.
I can't even change the channel of my life like t.v. without a remote control.
Without Christ in my life there's no meaning of living.
Like an ear that don't listen, a mind with no decisions, and a car with no keys that you put in the ignition.
Listen I can't be tripping,
Because me on this earth is like waking up without the sun being risen.
No value in my life like Geneva watches when the diamonds missing.
It's even worst when it don't even shine or glisten.
Without Christ I'm like dry land with nothing to rain on.
Climbing mountains without a rope to hang on.
Sickness with no medicine to make the pain gone.
And a rim without even having a ball to bang on.
I'm worthless like going to war with no troops.
No bullet proof,
Guns with no bullets to shoot.
And if it's raining, it's like staying in your house without even having a roof.
