It's all for you and not for me
'Cause I am a legalistic Pharisee.
I play it safe, knowing you will fall,
As I set the rules for one and all.
I say, 'Jesus loves you' so don't be annoyed
My rules feel safe, made for you to be destroyed
It's just that I need for you to think
That grace and mercy must really stink.
Your works must fail so that you can see
That you should work harder to be more like me!
'Cause I can point out in a crowd,
Who's wrong, who's right, whose faith is too loud.
I have the answers for all within this room
I am the finest, ultimate whitewashed tomb
Pointing to others has made it impossible, you see
To look within myself and beg God to rescue me.
