One Way Looking Glass

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

It’s just another day
Another heart break
Another teenage girl
Who gets raped and killed
Why die and go to hell
When you can just experience hell on earth

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

It’s 4 am
And the phone rings as loud as it can
It’s your best friend
He was just shot and killed
You look to the sky 
And you can’t help but to ask God why

Does God even care
Does he see what you see
With all this hurt and pain
How could this be fair

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

But what you do not see
Through that one way looking glass
Is the tear that falls down God’s face
And the warmth of his loving embrace 

It is our sin that separates us from God
Our rebellious ways that brings our pain
Before the first sin was a perfect world
We brought this upon ourselves 

But by the grace of God and his love
He gave us the key to heaven above
Just trust in Jesus Christ till the end
And watch your brokenness mend 

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie
