SOUL

Have you ever stopped to wonder
what this life is all about
why you’re here and where you’re going
when your lease on life runs out
maybe you’ve been far to busy
trying hard to reach your goal
would you let me ask you kindly
have you thought about your soul?

You may reach the highest portals
and your dreams may all come true
wealth and fame may be your portion
and success may shine on you
all your friends may sing your praises
not a care on you may roll
what about the great tomorrow
have you thought about your soul?

Don’t forget your days are numbered
though you may be riding high
But like all of us poor mortals
someday you’ll just up and die
your success and fame and glory
won’t be worth the bell you toll
let me ask you just one question
have you thought about your soul?

If you never thought it over
spend a little time today
there is nothing more important
that will ever come your way
than the joys of sins forgiven
and to know that you have been made whole
in the name of Christ the Savior
have you thought about your soul?

CHOICE

Why this dreadful choice I must make
depression and heart go hand in hand
I have no other road to take

a life like mine is only a fake
physical pain I can withstand
why this dreadful choice I must make

there is no magic power I can wake
this cursed bottle becomes my wand
I wish there were another road to take

against this thirst I cannot slake
no will is left with which to stand
why this dreadful choice I must make

coals of hell I must always rake
this coward’s life was never grand
I sought no other road to take

deep inside my soul begins to quake
I lift my gun with a trembling hand
what a dreadful choice I must make
there should be a better road to take
