people dont want your help
people dont want you to lead by example
people dont care what youve done in your past thats good
people only care about the demons in their own head
how can they appease them
people bow to those demons instead of to hope, to love, to possibilities
theyre gonna vote republican
theyre gonna lie about stuff to your face
theyre gonna sell you out.
when i think of leading by example i think of Pete Rose
but people dont wanna think about Pete Rose
they just wanna say he was a dumb redneck hillbilly who was a gambling addict
they just wanna say how was he leading by example
and i say i mean in baseball, the only reason you know him, the only thing he could do great
can we focus on the thing he did great?
the people dont wanna listen.
you cannot help the people.
Jesus came down here, walked around, debated the people
but the people didnt wanna listen.
he answered all the questions from his disciples.
he walked on water on a wild day with the wind whipping around and the white caps and the spray
he fed the hungry, healed the sick, all right in front of his disciples
the people who were supposed to love him the most
and the day before he was ready to die they said, ok cool but now can you show us God?
he said but
he said but why do you think i was able to do those things
why do you think theyre about to kill me
why do you think imma let em “kill” me
and they said yeah yeah but come on youre great, but youre not God
and then we shoulda known that you cant do anything for people
maybe your mom will appreciate it.
but thats probably it.
and thats it.
