Where are we and why are we here
What’s our worth between the dirt and the ionosphere
How many, how many insular years
Until we realize the answer’s not between our ears

Come heaven, come kingdom come
Answer the question with direction cause we’re needing some

Being alive is no reason, reason to live
To exist is no cause, cause to persist
To be loved by God and loving Him back
That’s the meaning of life, that’s the meaning of life

What drives me, what gets me out of bed
What can I say but something someone else has already said
He moves me, He is why I live
The only reason for existence I can possibly give

Come heaven, come kingdom come
Give us the answers with direction cause we’re needing some
Surrender, turn it over
Whatever it is let it go and make it His
