Standing Next to God (2016) - Lyrics

I remember when I was a boy
Listening to the teachers talk about God
Painting a picture of a statue in the sky
Seeing creation distant from mankind

I heard the sermons from on high
Recoiled from their hell-fire roar
Gave the illusion of a saint far out of reach
Condemning every soul for eternity... They were

Standing next to God
Feeling ten feet tall
Posing for a photograph to hang upon their wall
Standing next to God
Learning right from wrong
Hoping it would be alright for them to tag along with God

I sought my own path to Christ
Reached for an answer deep inside
Pondered His greatness underneath a starry sky
Achieved a union they claimed I could not find.I was

Standing next to God
Feeling ten feet tall
Posing for a photograph to hang upon my wall
Standing next to God
Learning right from wrong
Hoping it would be alright for me to tag along with God

I saw the moon eclipse the sun
Peace and understanding came to everyone
Felt like a bolt of lightning striking in my heart
Just then I realized, we're not that far apart

Standing next to God
Feeling ten feet tall
Posing for a photograph to hang upon our wall
Standing next to God
Learning right from wrong
Hoping it would be alright for me to tag along with God
