The rage is back,
The springs in my step,
Ghetto man returns,
Chins off my neck.
Walking tall, strong and proud,
Head in the air,
Don’t judge me,
And I’ll try not to scare.
You see,I just can’t hold it in,
I’m a warrior filled with rage,
They let me out of jail fifteen years ago,
But I still sometime feel like I’m in a cage.
But no door can hold me,
I lock my own doors,
I don’t give people that power,
To clamp up my jaws.
You see, I’m a voice,
A spokesman for the mad,
Yeah I’m a bit of a scary schitz,
But don’t worry I’m not bad.
But I tell you man, I’m really angry,
To see people suffering in poverty,
To see people hooked on drugs,
Resorting to theft and robbery.
Frustrated to see my friends on drugs,
Their goodness overcome by addictions,
Angry to see people living on the streets,
What are we doing as Christians?
So many church people walking by,
Some with their noses in the air,
I’m pleased though that there are some real among them,
Who really genuinely care.
So frustrated, hurt and angry,
To see teenagers committing crime,
Bored to tears, hooked on drugs,
Then end up doing time.
What the hell is this world coming to,
When terrorists hijack planes,
Blow up cars and blow up buses,
And put bombs on our trains?
In this world, so little trust,
Or families sticking together,
Abandoned children, abandoned partners,
Is this world getting any better?
Seems the world is getting faster,
Crowded, noisy with less space,
Hurricanes and tidal waves,
And resources going to waste.
Now you see why I must roar,
And let the lion come alive,
The son of God, the lion of Judah,
Christ the messiah, who’s power I can’t hide.
Christ is the saviour of this fallen world,
Who will rule for ever with love so kind,
Whenever you feel that your lost in darkness,
Pray to him and peace you’ll find.
I’m not trying to say that I am Christ,
But I know that Christ is in my heart,
My rage is actually frustrated concern,
For a world that’s in the dark.
A world where many people,
Are lost and hooked in sin,
But I know that if you turn to Jesus,
His love will enter in.
Repentance brings such deep relief,
And all cry’s for help are heard,
Jesus has the power to help and heal,
And break every chain and curse.
I know you have such power Lord,
So I’ll let the lion roar,
Your power Jesus is so divine,
Broken lives you restore.
