There’s heartbreak, misery, larceny, fear.
Something is very wrong here.
The rain falls down on my broken heart and sometimes it’s hard to breathe.
I know God took all the Christians with him but he didn’t want to take me.
There are empty homes where people should be.
You could just walk in without a key.
Ownerless pets and empty cribs, it looks like he took all the children with him.
The world is more frightening than it’s ever been, more bloody than a bad horror flick.
Death and destruction have become the norm because God isn’t here anymore.
When did it happen? I can’t say. I once had my chance but I turned him away.
Who wants to hear about all of that stuff? My own religion is more than enough.
But now I don’t know that I’m all that sure as I look around the world once more.
I thought maybe he would save me for last. But now I know that my time has passed.
My tears fall to the ground down below as I realize God isn’t here anymore.
I should have listened. I should have cared. I thought I had enough time to spare.
But I was wrong and I’m left behind because God isn’t here anymore.
As I walk along the streets of despair, the rain drenches my hand-me-down suit.
Now that it’s over it’s clear that I’m left with a choice. What should I do?
Should I go on living as before, ignore the call placed on my life?
Or should I surrender, give my heart to the Lord even though he’s not here anymore?
I’m sorry I failed to answer you, though you were pounding on my heart.
Is it too late to come to you now and begin with a brand new start?
I know the world needs someone like me to show them all where to go.
They’ll need someone to help them believe because God isn’t here anymore.
Help me turn all the lost sinners to you.
I can’t do this on my own.
Help me share the love that I should have accepted.
God isn’t here anymore.
