Have you ever been The prodigal Feeling like this Left side empty With the right side bliss Daytime dripping In the nighttime gliss Tryna stop time On your wrist Have you been the prodigal Playin on the fence Say that you ain't going Start to wonder what you missed Outside holy But the Inside split Little bit counterfeit I know someone in this room That needs to hear it Feel like someone tugging on ya That's the Holy Spirit Heart start racing But Ain't no need to fear it Yo I Prayed before I wrote this So there's power in these lyrics Specifically I'm talking to the ones That walked away Used to come to church Now you MIA Living in the world Thinking it's a better way Only come to find You been blinded Worse Led astray Now you feeling jaded Your Tolerance is higher So it's harder gettin faded Lots a worldly knowledge So you feeling educated But Logic can't compare To one who made it God told me to write my story down I said okay Barter with world for my crown I said No way Can't be 50/50 with my sound That's a bad day Hard to let the lord inside your heart When it's Opaque What you think So What you really think Could the prodigal be someone That you really wouldn't think it is Take a look around Notice any differences Never judge a book by its cover Thats discriminative High percentage of the church Find it awkward to evangelize Don't know how interact With strangers or a homeless guy Ask them How they doin And they tend to give the same reply They won't change their answer Unless We ask them a second time It's relationship Their looking for Jesus made disciples Then he told us we should make some more You Never know the impact Going Door to door Prodigals can come in different Sizes colors shapes and forms It could be the waiter At ya table serving Greek food It could be your neighbor Who you barely ever speak to It be your brother or your sister Or your cousin or your aunty Or granny Shoot it could even be you Hold up Wait a second What if the prodigal Could be your own reflection? Used to walk with god Felt the warmth of his protection But now you feeling lukewarm Where's Loose connection at? I love the part up in the Bible When it talks about the prodigal Coming home sad You'd think his father Would be angry Cause he gave him lots of money And spent up all he had What a picture perfect picture Of the mercy of our father When we should'a got the wrath Instead he calls up all his buddies Brings them to the celebration Tells em' slaughter up the calf Have you ever been The prodigal Feeling like this Left side empty With the right side bliss Daytime dripping In the nighttime gliss Tryna stop time On your wrist Have you been the prodigal Playin on the fence Say that you ain't going Start to wonder what you missed Outside holy But the Inside split Little bit counterfeit
