The End Is Here
By Five Iron Frenzy

As an old friend and I were talking about following Jesus this song came across my mind. You have to understand that God speaks to me a lot through Five Iron Frenzy. He has used them many times in my life. So here is a song that I think can describe how we all feel at times about life in the church and with God.(If you’re a guy ignore the girl part and say a guy.)

“People say they know a girl who’s lost her way,
she’s always angry.
No one bothers to ask her what she hears or what she hopes for.
The air is cold, she lives alone
and tires of being her only provider.
She can’t fathom grace tonight,
no not tonight it’s not an option.”

“Searching for more than,
mere tastes of living water.
Tired eyes tend to wander, seek the light.
Create in her,
a sense of awe that sees Your beauty.
Let Your splendor flash with blinding light.”

“Cities slowly suffocate,
what once was bright is now moth-eaten.
As young girls filter thoughts,
that once were fresh now worn and beaten.
Clutching pity like a prize,
to her side her fingers grow weary.
‘He cares so much for sparrows,
won’t He toss something out my way?’”

“Searching for more than,
mere lies disguised as dogma.
Tired eyes tend to wander,
seek the light.
Create in her,
a sense of awe that sees Your beauty.
Let Your splendor flash with blinding light.
Standing tall all the aspen trees drink water.
As rain falls down like laughter from the sky.”
