Song of the Day – What Have We Become (DC Talk Month. Lyrics Included) From Jesus Freak Album

09 Mar

Today’s DC Talk Month Song of the Day is “What Have We Become” from their landmark 1995 album Jesus Freak. This is track #11 of 13.

Such a powerful song that will bring one to tears. A slower piece from a fantastic album.

What Have We Become Song Lyrics

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

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?

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)

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

About DC Talk Month
March 2013 is dedicated to the Christian rock pioneers DC Talk, arguably my favorite Christian CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) rock band and follows January 2013 which was Demon Hunter Month and February 2013 which was Becoming the Archetype Month. March will feature songs from most of dc Talk’s discography (1992’s Free At Last, 1995’s Jesus Freak, 1998’s Supernatural and 2000’s Intermission) featured daily throughout the month, one a day. Whether you like rock/alternative/hip-hop music, believe in God or not, check these songs out as you may be pleasantly surprised and hopefully you will discover some new-to-your-ears music to enjoy. DC Talk features lots of variety in their tunes, from hard rock to hip-hop to slow ballads that will pull on your heartstrings to singable power pop, so there will most certainly be something you’ll like. Enjoy!
