Beautiful Eulogy - Symbols And Signs lyrics

[Verse 1: Braille] Pump the brakes, stop sign You saw the sign now you Ace Of Base Preacher saw them dollar signs He on that paper chase Stuffing profits in his pockets A wolf with a sheep's appearance And the reason he's making that scratch huh Is cause those ears itch Pimping out the Gospel (watch out) A prostitution of false doctrine Lies whistle in the wind But we listen If there's a little truth mixed in Find a pastor that suits you On your TV with a suit and tie Hitch a ride in his private jet And you'll be lookin' stupid fly Materialism And selfish ambition Is a foolish religion The riches of God's mercy Is worth more than your superstition Tell me how does a Christian begin To develop discernment and wisdom First we submit every symbol and sign To the authority of the scriptures [Hook] Signs Symbols and signs Symbols and signs Symbols and signs Signs, symbols and signs Symbols and signs Symbols and signs Symbols and signs Signs, symbols [Verse 2: Odd Thomas] Yep, are you the kind That's completely consumed By symbols and signs? If you are that's fine But don't you find it interesting How most of the time Your self-interpreting seems to coincide With what's deep inside Your heart's desires Seems rather convenient, doesn't it? I'm not saying that God can't do it Not saying that God won't do it That might very well be the case! I'm simply making an observation of how much weight you place on it What seems to be at stake and how much of your faith is actually banking on it And how much of your mysticism is mixed with your religious philosophic system Sometimes what we believe to be true from our supernatural pursuits is actually a fluke A series of events that's used to distract you from the truth But, I'll give you a sign that's obvious One of the most supernatural acts is that God through His Word has actually revealed everything pertaining to life in Godliness There's this idea that an individual Is somehow more spiritual If he sees these signs and symbols And takes what's normally invisible And makes it simple But I say the mark of a mature man Is the one who reads God's Word and understands And allows that to govern his decisions and his prospective plans [Hook] [Verse 3: Propaganda] I like it when the wind shifts They say it's the movement of the Spirit Still small voice, ya'll hear it? Remember that time I saw that leaf fall I was positive it was God's call Wait for it, listen close Ya'll missed it? I cite Gideon, Samson, Paul Elijah saw the clouds split And know that God did it And does it still Still, his presence feels like chills Right, and if I'm honest it doesn't happen often Something must be wrong It's boring when my life is more like the book of Ruth than Exodus I've never seen the partin' Of an ocean Or a cloud by day or pillar by night Just a normal everyday working of life Where things that s** royally Is evidence of His royalty Scratch your temple So deep it's simple Silly us, ignore the plain We prefer a riddle Dying to see a miracle While holding God's diary Looking for signs [Outro] Symbols, signs (x6) Symbols, signs, signs, signs, symbols
