Lyrics of the Week: Instead of a Show by Jon Foreman

Alright, so maybe lyrics of the month isn’t enough. Let’s go weekly and see if I can remember to keep it up. There’s just too many good songs out there to only do one a month. So here you go. Preacher Man Jason shared this guys tunes with me, and I’m hooked. Thoughtful lyrics, beautiful guitar, simple to sing along with. This song hit me especially close to home this week. Reminded me that I need to change my heart to be in tune with God, rather than in tune with my comforts. Loving it, and you should to.

Instead Of A Show :
I hate all your show and pretense
The hypocrisy of your praise
The hypocrisy of your festivals
I hate all your show
Away with your noisy worship
Away with your noisy hymns
I stomp on my ears when you’re singing ’em
I hate all your show

Instead let there be a flood of justice
An endless procession of righteous living, living
Instead let there be a flood of justice
Instead of a show

Your eyes are closed when you’re praying
You sing right along with the band
You shine up your shoes for services
There’s blood on your hands
You turned your back on the homeless
And the ones that don’t fit in your plan
Quit playing religion games
There’s blood on your hands

Instead let there be a flood of justice
An endless procession of righteous living, living
Instead let there be a flood of justice
Instead of a show
I hate all your show

Let’s argue this out
If your sins are blood red
Let’s argue this out
You’ll be one of the clouds
Let’s argue this out
Quit fooling around
Give love to the ones who can’t love at all
Give hope to the ones who got no hope at all
Stand up for the ones who can’t stand at all, all
I hate all your show
I hate all your show
I hate all your show
I hate all your show

Instead let there be a flood of justice
An endless procession of righteous living, living
Instead let there be a flood of justice
Instead of a show
I hate all your show
