Let's be honest and tell the truth I'm far from perfect, and so are you A couple skeletons under the bed The carnal nature not always dead
But that doesn't mean you have to give up and die It's time to take care of business Time to stand up and fight And when the world, the flesh and the devil attack You say back off, Jack -- I'm a Gospel Maniac!
Grace under pressure; pressure under grace With good intent they shove the Word in your face Don't get excited; cool your jets And don't forget your Christian etiquette
But don't ever think you're worse than the rest You're not competing in a holiness contest And when you feel your armor starting to crack Pick up the slack -- you're a Gospel Maniac
You fight -- to understand You fight -- to gain command You fight -- with bloodied hands You fight -- but you don't always make it
You're loved by the King, and the King is coming back So get up and shout -- you're a Gospel Maniac
Let's be honest and tell the truth We're far from perfect -- so sad but true A couple skeletons under the bed The carnal nature not always dead
But that doesn't mean you have to die in your sin You have need of repentance -- let the Spirit come in The Father adores you; He won't turn His back The Son is your Brother -- you're a Gospel Maniac
