“£€AV€N”
I got a yard sale on my dresser
tell me how will I get my mess to heaven
up and down, back and forth for what I try to accomplish
sometimes I forget who that I worship
one string of pearls post lunar flight
sold out like Jesus is coming tonight

he ¡s the Worker
¡ his workmanship
he ¡s the Potter
and ¡ am the clay
he provides my daily wages
¡ gather words of manna day by day

I got a yard sale on my dresser
tell me how will I set my mass unto leaven
when I work hard and earn my best
sometimes I forget who that I bless
yes sir, I perceive heaven’s a bonus
so I believe there’s gold in my bones

he ¡s the Worker
¡ his workmanship
he ¡s the Potter
and ¡ am the clay
he provides my daily wages
¡ gather words of manna day by day
