It's Going On Again

It's another day of what's going on
Do you have the answer, I'm asking you
I've prayed for it a thousand times
Give us the word Lord, are you worried too?

You give me a sign, I'll know I have a home
We're all afraid of the pain of leaving
Losing so much of our hearts makes us strong
We live with what's left, no matter the grieving

We're not just praying to you
We're praying for you too
We grab a gun and reject a dove
How can your creation fail so much
When it's your body and blood we're made of?

We've never been worthy of our thrones
Our idols are mortal flesh and bones
I can't imagine them being your glory
But you are silent while they tell the story

Is it only a memory that I can summon
We mistake cannon's for your canon
Do you need us to fight for you Lord?
Your son said peace is love's reward

We're not just praying to you
We're praying for you too
We grab a gun and reject a dove
How can your creation fail so much
When it's your body and blood we're made of?
