Backwater

Backwater

Wes Tillett

 

Why waste your life in the backwater of the earth?

Why lose you life for these losers, these freaks, these jerks?

Why not instead turn these stones into bread and reveal your face?

Why not instead take the throne you deserve in this time and space?

Why not at least seek a bigger and brighter stage?

 

So here I am in the backwater to my knees

Losing my life for these losers and jerks like me

But who am I to think I could escape to some higher place?

And who am I to think I should deserve some brighter stage?

Just like the master so shall the student be

 

I’m waiting on you.  I’m waiting on you.

Apart from you there’s nothing I can do.

I want to know you.  I want to know you.

I want to take up my cross and follow you.

I want to love you.  I want to love you.

I want my life to be lost and found in you.
