Walking down this lonely aisle
Hoping it won’t take awhile
To confess what’s on my mind
I draw the curtain, then unwind
Forgive me Father, I have sinned
“Tell me Son, what brings you in?”
I cannot make recompense
I can’t find your first defense
“Wait my child, what do you mean?”
Just listen please, and I’ll come clean
Yes, you sit here to judge me
But I can’t help the things I see
What if someone could judge You?
Ask ‘why do the things You do?’
“Come now son -“ Be quiet, please
This is between Him and me
Sit there Father, be patient
I did not come to relent
I came to speak with Him, true
You’re just the outlet I speak through
Promise now, He’s listening?
“He hears every song you sing”
Good, because this tune, I fear
Plays notes He won’t want to hear
Does He have an answer, now?
To the what, or why, or how?
That we ask of all of His?
Or is it all just playground, this?
Don’t tell me Father, “it’s His plan”
Don’t you dare make mice of man
He made these minds, did He not?
Or have you conveniently forgot
“That’s enough, boy”
Yeah. It is.
How dare I ask why of all this
“That’s not what I meant”
Yeah, it was
Your only answer: “just because”
I hate these thoughts, do you know that?
“Of course I do, just calm down, Matt”
Sure you do. Label me “woke”
‘Cause this booth here? It’s a joke.
