Generation Lost: A Song

 

We don’t know what we have done

We’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

I said, we don’t know what we have done

Oh, we’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

I made a lot of mistakes in my past

But I refuse to live there

I made promises I knew wouldn’t last

But I refuse to dwell there

I built up walls and hid with my mask

But I refuse to stay there

I grew addicted to drinking my flask

But I refuse to go there

We don’t know what we have done

We’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

I said, we don’t know what we have done

Oh, we’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

It hurt too much, it cut too deep

But I needed something ‘cause everything was far too steep

I let my angst out, I let myself go

But I let myself down, and now I know…

I’m not the only one that I’ve let down

But I was dragging everyone else to the ground

I was breaking hearts and shooting moons

I was digging graves and labeling tombs

But then you broke me, shattered on the floor

Showed me your mercy, told me there was so much more

You gave your life, crucified that I might live

I take and take, when all you do is give and give

So hear my cry, I lay me down

I’m laying everything beneath your crown

‘Cause without you, my life is none

You’ve taken all my sins… they’re undone

Oh, forgive us for what we have done

We’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

I pray, forgive us for what we have done

‘Cause we’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

We’re young, we’re young

Forgive us, we’re young

Forgive us, forgive us

Forgive us, we’re young

I pray, forgive us for what we have done

‘Cause we’re lost, we’re blind, we’re young

I have to say that this was inspired by James Arthur’s twist on Tulisa’s song, Young. It really resonated with me about how lost a lot of my generation is. I’m also reminded of the story of Christ’s crucifixion when he says, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” I know there’s a lot of hurt and pain in the world, but I honestly hope that people will find the peace and the refuge that God offers through Christ Jesus. He suffered the ultimate pain, separation from the Father, that we might not have to. It breaks my heart to think about the number of people that are lost, not knowing what they’re truly missing. So, here’s my spin on a song, unleashing part of what I feel inside.
