Verse 1

Not everyone gets to live the life they choose.

Not everyone gets over the things they lose.

But that doesn't give you a good enough excuse

To fail the role you were supposed to have played.

"I had no one, just God", you say every day.

I'd like to tell you at this point, if I may,

Chorus

God isn't in idols,

God doesn't respond to fasts.

You've been badly broken,

So hung up in your lost past,

That you've woken up to find

You've built a today you never wanted.

So you run and you go blind,

But I promise you, you will be haunted.

Verse 2

You ask me why I snapped and brought you more pain.

You put yourself first, as usual, you're so vain.

You seem clueless, let me remind you again,

Somewhere beyond the pain, you'll find empathy.

Broken and bruised, you've got company in me,

But I'm nothing like you, because I can see,

Chorus

God isn't in idols,

God doesn't respond to fasts.

You've been badly broken,

So hung up in your lost past,

That you've woken up to find

You've built a today you never wanted.

So you run and you go blind,

But I promise you, you will be haunted.

Bridge

And I promise you, God doesn't want flowers at his feet.

He would much rather you tend to the precious things that breathe.

But you're cold

To all souls,

You turn your back and run in the opposite direction.

You've abandoned everyone, it's time you change perception.

Chorus

God isn't in idols,

God doesn't respond to fasts.

You've been badly broken,

So hung up in your lost past,

That you've woken up to find

You've built a today you never wanted.

So you run and you go blind,

But I promise you, you will be haunted.
