The Money and The Mutiny

There’s mutiny on this ship
And so here’s to jumping
Jumping to a river that
Can’t promise anything better
It’s like a prostitute
And her revealing clothes
It’s all about the money
And I’ve laid the money down
Yeah I’ve laid my money down
To see what’s behind
loosely locked doors
She’d loose it all for a dime
But I dump it out like liquid through my hands

Yeah and I jump
Cause it’s not about what’s best
It’s about what’s better

Here we go
Crashing through doors
Doors like a woman
Who’s let too many in
But can’t stop cause she loves sin
And it’s easy you know
It’s easy to get lost in all of this
Yeah I hate it
But I love sin
And so sinkings easy
It’s the drowning that’s hard

And let me awake
Awake like a baby who’s seen it’s mother for the first time
O how Glorious!
How wonderful it is
To look into that lovely face
It’s the face that makes angels sing
It’s the face of the redeemed
And it’s not because of anything I have done
It’s who I’ve come to see –
That makes me redeemed
From this horrible mutiny that wages it’s war in me
