Dead Or AliveYou preach virtue and practice vice,
Blindly misleading the masses with your device
Of flattery and deceit, quoting from the BOOK
To support your actions for all to witness and look...
Are you dead or alive?
You claim to be alive
Yet there you lie amongst the dead with your life
Busily laying your treasures amongst the dead
And deliberately killing your conscience in the head
Neglecting the will of your father who keeps you alive,
Are you not dead than being alive?
You preach the holistic nature of marriage
And counsel the young to embrace marriage
Yet there you go behind the kiosk to meet her
Behind your wife to do 'things' with her
Are you decorating your finger with that ring
Or you are dead and wish to remain in that wing?
In Christ we profess to be alive and well
But in reality we rot in the valley of death cell
Exploiting the weak to hit the targets
And look down on the poor as useless facets...
Are we really being sincere and holy
To the bone as we wish to be seen wholly?
I stand the Chief of sinners looking up to God
To forgive me my debts as I abstain from His rod...
You have been dead for long
So why not wake from your slumber and come along?
If you are alive already
Stay focused and maintain your stance as you ready
Yourself to meet HIM!
