lies of grandeur lyrics – this divided world

this life is a meaningless vapor
all the kingdoms of this world cannot compare
to the glory of the father
blink and it’s all gone

why do we waste the little time we’ve been given?
we always turn from the only thing that matters
father give me your secret joy while i remain here

remind me of the value of my time on this earth
the flash of lightning that we call life

for when this life is over let it be said
well done thy good and faithful servant

the empty life
the empty lie
the hollow sh*lls we’ve become

the lies of grandeur

all that our hearts chase after cannot compare to
what lies in wait for those who truly know you
and when it feels so hopeless like we are failing
if we don’t faint or give in we will overcome

/ this divided world lyrics
