DC Talk - What have we become
(from the album Jesus Freak)

A preacher shuns his brother cause his bride's a different color
And this is not acceptable his Papa taught him so
It was love that he'd been preaching, but this was overreaching
The boundaries stretched further than his heart would choose to go

Like an angel with no wings
Like a kingdom with no king

What have we become
A self indulgent people
What have we become
Tell me where are the righteous ones
What have we become
In a world degenerating
What have we become

Speak your mind, look out for yourself
The answer to it all is a life of wealth
Grab all you can cause you live just once
You got the right to do whatever you want
Don't worry about others or where you came from
It ain't what you were, it's what you have become

Mom and Dad are fighting as Rosie lies there crying
For once again she's overheard regrets of their mistake
With Christmas bells-a-ringing, lil' Rosie'd leave them grieving
The gift she'd give her family would be the pills she'd take

An inconvenient child
She wasn't worth their while

What about love?
What about God?
What about holiness?
What about mercy, compassion and selflessness?
