SPIRIT IN CONTROL
(The Strangers)

I’VE BEEN RESCUED FROM THE DARKNESS;
I’VE BEEN RESCUED FROM MY SHAME
GOD PULLED ME OUT OF HELL’S FIRE;
HE’S GIVEN ME A BRAND NEW NAME

NOW, TO THIS WORLD, I’M A STRANGER,
AN ALIEN FROM ANOTHER PLAIN

I’M JUST A-PASSIN’ THRU,
AND I TESTIFY ABOUT THE TRUTH
HE MADE A WAY FOR ME, FOR YOU
TO LIVE THE WAY HE WANTS US TO

TALKIN’ ABOUT FAITH, TALKIN’ ABOUT HOPE,
TALKIN’ ABOUT A LOVE THAT’S IN MY SOUL
TALKIN’ ABOUT PEACE, TALKIN’ ABOUT JOY,
TALKIN’ ABOUT THE SPIRIT IN CONTROL

and the rain starts to fall and it washes my dreams away
