We've turned the page, for a new day has dawned We've re-arranged what is right and what's wrong Somehow we've drifted so far from the truth 
That we can't get back home

Where are the virtues that once gave us light Where are the morals that governed our lives Someday we all will awake and 
look back just to find what we've lost

We need to get back 
To the basics of life 
A heart that is pure 
And a love that is blind 
A faith that is fervently grounded in Christ 
The hope that endures for all times 
These are the basics, we need to get back 
To the basics of life

The newest rage is to reason it out 
Just meditate And you can overcome every doubt After all man is a God, 
they say God is no longer alive

But I still believe in the old rugged cross 
And I still believe there is hope for the lost And I know the rock of all ages will stand Through changes of time


BRIDGE We've let the darkness invade us too long We've got to turn the tide Oh and we need the passion that burned long ago To come and open our eyes There's no room for compromise

We need to get back To the basics of life 
A heart that is pure And a love that is blind
