skillz

here’s a newish track by jon foreman of ‘switchfoot’ fame from his debut solo effort ‘fall’. the track is called ‘equally skilled’ and is taken from micah 7. i’d say it bares a bit of a resemblance. you?

How miserable I am
I feel like a fruitpicker who arrived here after the harvest
There’s nothing here at all
Nothing at all here that could placate my hunger
The godly people are all gone
There’s not one honest soul left alive on the planet
We’re all murderers and thieves
Setting traps here for even our brothers

And both of our hands
Are equally skilled
At doing evil
Equally skilled
At bribing the judges
Equally skilled
At perverting justice
Both of our hands
Both of our hands

The day of justice comes
And is even now swiftly arriving
Don’t trust anyone at all
Not your best friend or even your wife
For the son hates the father
The daughter despises even her mother
Look! Your enemies are right
Right in the room of your very household

And both of their hands
Are equally skilled
At doing evil
Equally skilled
At bribing the judges
Equally skilled
At perverting justice
Both of their hands
Both of their hands

No, don’t gloat over me
For though I fall, though I fall I will rise again
Though I sit here in darkness
The Lord, the Lord alone He will be my light.
I will be patient as the Lord
Punishes me for the wrongs I’ve done against Him
After that He’ll take my case
Bringing me to light and to justice for all I have suffered

And both of his hands
Are equally skilled
At ruining evil
Equally skilled
At judging the judges
Equally skilled
At ministering justice
Both of his hands
Both of his hands

And both of his hands
Are equally skilled
At showing me mercy
Equally skilled
At loving the loveless
Equally skilled
At ministering justice
Both of his hands
Both of his hands

PEACE!
