• dc Talk - What Have We Become Lyrics

    From the album Jesus Freak

    A preacher shuns his brother
    Cause his bride's a different color
    And this is not acceptable
    His papa taught him so
    It was love that he'd been preaching
    But this was overreaching
    The boundaries stretchin' further
    Than his heart would choose to go

    Like an angel with no wings
    Like a kingdom with no king

    (chorus 1)
    What have we become?
    A self indulgent people
    What have we become?
    Tell me where are the righteous ones?
    What have we become?
    In a world degenerating
    What have we become?

    (chorus 2)
    Speak your mind, look out for yourself
    The answer to it all is a life of wealth
    Grab all you can cause you live just once
    You got the right to do whatever you want
    Don't worry about others or where you came from
    It ain't what you were, it's what you have become

    Mom and Dad are fightin'
    As Rosie lies there crying
    For once again she's overheard
    Regrets of their mistake
    With Christmas bells a-ringing
    Little Rosie'd leave them grieving
    The gift she'd give her family
    Would be the pills she'd take

    An inconvenient child
    She wasn't worth their while

    (repeat choruses 1 and 2)

    What about love?
    What about God?
    What about holiness?
    What about mercy, compassion and selflessness?

    You know it's true
    He is there for me and you
    Doesn't matter what you do

    (repeat chorus 1)

    What have we become?
    Have we come undone?
    What have we become?
    Have we come undone?
    What have we become?

    (repeat chorus 2)

    With selfish...
    Selfish people
    When you gonna learn?
    Everyone of us
    Gathered 'round in trust
    What have we become?
