08. Spirit Sing

The Sleeping House
by Cool Hand Luke



 

All grown up with nowhere to go
How come nothing feels quite like home?
Sometimes it hurts to be awake
What’s the plan when we’ve got no plan?
A costly piece of paper in hand
But that’s not what it takes

Spirit, sing out a little louder
My flesh is so weak
But it screams with all its strength
Spirit grow up, into a flower
My flesh is like a weed
That strangles out the seed
And blocks out the sunlight

You could say we’re living on prayer
Boomerangs that fly in the air
We’re back where we started from

Spirit, sing out a little louder
My flesh is so weak
But it screams with all its strength
Spirit grow up, into a flower
My flesh is like a weed
That strangles out the seed
And blocks out the sunlight

Don’t we need something, need something to live for? It’s You
Don’t we all need something, need something we’d die for? It’s You
That’s all I know to do, so please

Spirit, sing out a little louder
My flesh is so weak
But it screams with all its strength
Spirit grow up, into a flower
My flesh is like a weed
That strangles out the seed
And blocks out the sunlight



Behind the Song:
"This song is about the complexity of growing up and the continuing theme of being distracted by the world and the flesh.

So many of us find ourselves out of high school or college and still have no idea what we’re supposed to do. I was having a hard time with life in general when I wrote this song. I was lonely, hurt, and confused. I felt like no matter how much I truly wanted to hear God and follow Him, I could hardly hear Him for all the distractions that were in my life—and many of them were put there by me. Still, as I lay in bed at night, I knew that I would do anything to be with Christ. I felt like I would do anything if I only knew what it was God wanted me to do.

Maybe you’ve been there. Maybe you’re there now. Rest in the fact that God is there with you, too." - Mark Nicks (Cool Hand Luke)
