Soundtracks - Exile Dial Tone by Beautiful Eulogy lyrics

[Verse 1: Odd Thomas] We're part of a culture, that really loves to hate us Every chance they get, they attempt to isolate and debate us It's not that they don't like us. It's just they don't like God in us It's common knowledge and oddly enough, it makes a lot of sense to a lot of us We completely understand because we use to occupy the same space And lived in a similar type state until we tasted of God's grace So we continue loving this world that so easily rejects us And pa**ionately press past the lack of their cultural acceptance And as if there weren't enough problems for us gaining influence We keep fighting over the issue of what's too worldly of a christian to make a difference So no matter how you paint it or politically campaign it Whether you water it down and drain it. It's really all the same ain't it? It's the same frustration, same constant segregation Christians living like aliens trying to relate with citizens of a different nation What always makes for a better presentation than bark and bite Is a proper understanding of living life filled with salt and light So we walk this fine line of walking in light of God's kindness And live with a sense of worldliness without the fear of compromising Loving God and neighbor until Christ comes to split the sky Or die in this society hailing Jesus as Messiah. Yup! [Chorus] We are in this world not of it, not to be scared and run from it We shine light in the darkness, that's why He left us here Calling out to all the exiles, the Lord will not forsake you His kingdom can't be shaken, hold strong the end is near We are the light of the world, so, shine on [Verse 2: Braille] Hey, I thought we won the battle but it really looks like we losing it What we do seems insignificant, so limited in our influence They don't listen to our message, we scream and yell it, they say it's irrelevant It's the greatest story ever told but a television ain't telling it So often they just mock our faith and it makes me wanna hide my face Why we sitting on our hands with no plans like we got time to waste? The culture could change if someone stepped up for the cause To rep us and our God, but who will accept the job? If only we had better rappers to gain us more respect To validate what we believe and keep our name up in the press But God does not use the same methods as the world He chose the foolish and the weak to bring His message to the world We were rescued from the world, He left us here to be His servants We don't need more superstars we need more Gospel-centered churches Working as the body to bring the Gospel to the nations Even when we face rejection Jesus is our validation And we will be vindicated, yeah we know His path is narrow To follow Him requires more than bumper stickers and apparel They will know us by our love, not by our celebrities So we pray for those who persecute us and show love to our enemies. Ah! [Chorus] We are in this world not of it, not to be scared and run from it We shine light in the darkness, that's why He left us here Calling out to all the exiles, the Lord will not forsake you His kingdom can't be shaken, hold strong the end is near We are the light of the world, so, shine on
