When sin has a hold and its roots run deep

It grabs you by the scalp while your eyes just weep

It’s embedded in your life down to the core

It’s pulling at your heart pulling for more

 

When sin is in control and its spinning you all around

You’re buried to the neck in the filthy dirty ground

It’s causing you to lose what matters most in life

Filling your head full junk that causes nothing more than strife

 

When sin fills your head full of dirty filthy lies

It’s begging you not to stop, for give it one more try

Its aim is to seduce your soul and shred your heart to bits

As if grasping at your flesh with its greasy grimy mitts

 

It wants you to live in defeat and forget you’re a child of God

Sin shows you all your failures that point to that you’re flawed

But Jesus died for you on that ole rugged cross

He died so you no longer have to live like your lost
