Phanatik - Shot Clock
(from the album The Incredible Walk)

Verse 1:
Here it is fresh off the presses/
Here to lift souls and clear all depression/
Cuz I know what itís like when the sun is all shining but your soul feels night/
Feels like youíre caught under gloomís dark presence/
With a little light shining like the moons sharp crescent/
How many days gone by/
When I said I was gonna win and I ainít even try/
I wake up at half court/
The day is half gone/
And time left on the board is madd short/
Rushing my shot/
I hurry out the door/
I donít pray I donít take my worries to the Lord/
How much time does it take to run the floor/
get the stop watch or maybe I should stop and watch the Lord/
Everyday is a new 24 on the shot clock either get your shot blocked or score

Hook:
Brand new day
With each new day thatís dawniní
Every time night turns to morning
Grace is new, Mercy is new, what you gone do with it
If life is a game you can never play in again/
would you stay in your sin or start traininí aiminí to win?

Verse 2
Iím so down in points at this point Iíll take brownie points/
Especially with the people I love/
I wish I could win or at least take the lead by a hug/
Sometimes when Iím leaviní I shrug/
Hoping they feel me like really E.Q.íd up subs/
I hope they know that Iím doing a good thing/
Thatís the reason Iím not around as much as I could be/
And when Iím around Iím often drained/
But I donít want relationships getting lost and strained/
Iím always telling myself/
Donít leave your lights out/
Be a lighthouse for someone else/
I could do more before I hit the floor let me cop a squat/
Put in some quality time for sure/
Everyday is a new 24 on the shot clock either get your shot blocked or score

Verse 3:
I love the way the Lord taught the church/
He had a simple game plan when He walked the earth/
A balance between doing/
And being with the people He loved/
And spending time with the father above/
If I could master the art of the latter part/
I could keep from having to march back to start/
Thereís so many things to do/
And this brings me to by chief need which is to cling to you/
Maslowís hierarchy listed the priority/
Of the order of the things that we need and I guess it varies/
From the need to feed and to find love and to seek to succeed/
But he missed the one thing that necessary/
The Lordís standing at the door of your heart/
Knocking unlock it watch Heís got a lot in store/
Today is a new 24 on your shot clock will you get your shot blocked or score
