Jonah

The good Lord came to me and said, boy, 
you gotta go where you don’t want to go
The good Lord came to me and said, boy,
you gotta do what you don’t want to do
He said, I’m sending you,
you gotta go where you don’t want to go


I tried to run. I tried to hide
I did go where no one could find me
Then He sent a great big fish to swallow me whole


I’m in the belly of the whale, it’s so deep, deep, deep
The bottom of the sea is so deep, deep, deep
The pressure is crushing me now deep, deep, deep
The ocean is closing in now deep, deep, deep
Squeezing my skin so deep, deep, deep
It’s the heartbeat of a whale going beat, beat, beat
All I can feel going beat, beat, beat
It’s taking over now beat, beat, beat
Everything is going dark now beat, beat, beat
All I want to do is sleep so deep, deep, deep
Beat, beat, beat
Deep, deep, deep


But I got out, I wanna tell the world that I survived
I got out, I wanna tell the world that I’m alive
Pull up my socks and wipe my eyes
There is hope on the other side
Pull up my socks and wipe my eyes
There is hope on the other side


The muses spoke to me and said, boy,
you gotta sing a song you don’t want to sing
The Spirit’s moving me and says,
you gotta stand where you don’t want to stand
He says, we’re sending you,
you gotta sing a song you don’t want to sing


I tried to run. I walked away
I did shut my mouth. I got nothing to say
Then he sent a great big song to swallow me whole


I’m in the belly of a song it’s so loud, loud, loud
Hit bottom again it’s so loud, loud, loud
Force a goofy grin it’s so loud, loud, loud
Starting to panic now it’s so loud, loud, loud
Gotta get out, don’t know how, loud, loud, loud
The heartbeat of a whale going beat, beat, beat
It’s taking over now beat, beat, beat
All I can feel going beat, beat, beat
Everything is going black now beat, beat, beat
All I want to do is sleep so deep, deep, deep
Beat, beat, beat
Deep, deep, deep


But I got out, I wanna tell the world that I survived
I got out, I wanna tell the world that I am alive
Stomp your feet and hold someone’s hand
There is hope on the other side
Stomp your feet and grab someone’s hand
There is hope on the other side


(Rant)


I got out, I wanna tell the world that I survived
I got out, I wanna tell the world that I am alive
Clap your hands and we’ll sing together
There is hope on the other side
Clap your hands, now shout together
There is hope on the other side
There is hope on the other side
There is hope on the other side
There is hope on the other side
