Convictions - Charlatan Lyrics




Kick me when I'm down.
Cast me out when I am lost.
This isn't who you said you were.

You said you were my teacher; my leader.

I still believe in the words that you preach.

You speak the word from a pulpit,
Yet point a finger like I am a culprit.
Instead of pulling me up, you put me down.
You always put me down.

This isn't who you said you were.
I won't be fooled any longer.
Men like you give Christ a bad name. Only in it for the fame.
I won't be naive. I won't be naive.
You are the reason many people don't believe.
You chose to deceive. I won't be naive.

We share the same beliefs but you should practice what you preach.
Practice what you preach.

Your pride runs as deep as the plank in your own eye.
The plank in your own eye.

This isn't who you said you were.
I won't be fooled any longer.
Men like you give Christ a bad name. Only in it for the fame.
I won't be naive. I won't be naive.
You are the reason many people don't believe.
You chose to deceive. I won't be naive.

Stand tall when others weep before your feet.
"But don't forget to pay your offering before you leave."
If God is for me, then you'll never stand against me!

I'll pave my own road,
Build a house on stone,
Plant a seed in the ground
Where I buried your crown.
