My song I wrote about Governor Rick Perry after he was in Houston fasting & praying, instead of serving and helping…

For the Love Of God
by Sara Hickman

You wanna fast
You wanna pray
Well, that’s alright
Yea, that’s ok

But you could serve
Do up some good
Instead of fasting
You could serve up some food

Since you were little
Down on your knees
You prayed to Jesus,
“Lord, help me please…

Make me rich
Remove the guilt
Give me power
On the tower of lies I’ve built…”

For the love of God
Why don’t you set us free
For the love of God
End all this misery
For the love of God…why can’t you see?
That the truth…lies in the heart…of who you’ll never be

Out on the street
There’s people crying
Out in the world
People are dying

Now I’m not perfect
I’ve got my faults
But you’re denying
What you know without a doubt

Cuz you’ve broken
What you promised to do
When you took that oath
And swore you’d keep it, too

You’re so righteous
In what you think you know
You think it’s hot in Texas…?
Wait till you see what’s waiting below

For the love of God
Why don’t you set us free
For the love of God
End all this misery
For the love of God…why can’t you see?
That the truth…lies in the heart…of who you’ll never be

We’re working night and day
Crying tears of sweat
You look down on us
From your private jet
But the day will come
When we all meet death
And in the end you’ll deserve what you get

For the love of God
Why don’t you set us free
For the love of God
End all this misery
For the love of God…why can’t you see?
That the truth…lies in the heart…
That the truth lies in your heart.
Of who you’ll never be
