authenticity lyrics – gun show

lets get this straight that everyone around you is not
what they seem.
we are all living a double life,
what our spirit wants the flesh denies.

why is it that we as christians can go through the
motions so perfectly.
that our speech is a well oiled machine and the lies
just come so
naturally.
wear that mask, like its who we really are inside.
who are we fooling, this world can tell a fake from
initial conversation.
we wear that mask, in hopes that no one finds out what
a mess we are.
who are we fooling, only people at your church believe
you.

wipe that smile off of your face, what’s the point of
being so fake.
everyone of us has pain, do we really trust in who we
claim.

we need a transformation.

your pride is bringing you to the point of lying to
yourself,
pretending that your better than everyone who doesn’t
believe like you.
but how does puffing up your chest portray a love you
say you know.
a love that came to this earth to live as flesh and
blood.
so he could dwell with the same kinds of people,
you won’t even acknowledge,
we’ve got it backwards.
oh!

we must all learn to live transparent lives.
for we all are sinners by nature.

we’re no better than anyone else.
we all know where we’ve come from,
all that remains is a choice.

we all know where we’ve come from,
all that remains is a choice.

we all know where we’ve come from,
all that remains is a choice.

we all know where we’ve come from,
all that remains is a choice.
