Something About It Is Faked


How can anyone feel safe,
With a faith to claim that shakes...
Away from doubting it to debate.

How can anyone say they're safe,
If they await to look for escapes.
And pretend they have a faith that's real.
But something about it is faked.

Wake up and face your fate.
Wake up and walk with faith.
Wake up don't hesitate.
With faith your fears will move away,
To prove this to you everyday.

How can you say you're saved,
When everyday you are afraid...
To test your faith to eliminate,
Those obstacles in your way.

Wake up and face your fate.
Wake up and walk with faith.
Wake up and don't hesitate.
With faith your fears will move away,
To prove this to you everyday.

Unregrettable...
Something about it is faked,
Unstated.
Something about your faith,
Has faded.
And you want others to believe,
You have more faith than what it takes.
Yet...
Something about it is faked.

Wake up and face your fate.
Wake up and walk with faith.
Wake up and don't hesitate.
With faith your fears will move away,
To prove this to you everyday.

Unregrettable...
Something about it is faked,
Unstated.
Something about your faith,
Has faded.
And you want others to believe,
You have more faith than what it takes.
But...
Something about it is faked faith.
Something about it is faked.
Something about it is faked faith.
Something about it is faked.

Something about it is faked faith.
Something about it is faked.
Something about it is faked faith.
Something about it is faked.
