The reason (lyrics and video)

While you’re waiting, the blonde have been leading the blind
While you’re watching, the wound teach us how to unwind
Finding needles in haystacks, falling in lust, or rags to riches
Always looking for subplots instead of the thrust of simple living

This is the reason that you’re here –
You’ve always known it.
This is the reason that you’re here –
So go on and own it.
This is the reason that you’re here –
But leading’s lonely
This is the reason that you’re here.

While you’re waiting, the rich have been raping the poor
While you’re watching, their bricks have been made out of straw
Signing over your conscience to free market lies – this trickle tickle
Getting downwardly mobile opens your eyes to really living

Would you stop looking for clues? This is no mystery.

Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.
