Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Now I ain't got nothing to lose, 'cause you're my everything / yes, you're my rock and my salvation and my very being / but something's off / I'm way too caught up in my apathy / Lord, it's a tragedy / God, you see what's happening / can I actually say that I could give up all I own for / the sake of righteousness could I rid myself of comfort? / Father I can't say that I could die if it were crucifixion / s'why I'm begging for your mercy when you choose to kill me / yes, I believe to die is gain / but when I think / of the pain / God I can't / no I cant / Lord, give me the strength / no, my mind it can't take / all the anguish and pain / that your Son had to take / to his grave / in my place / how can I share in his glory, but not share in his despairing? / yes, I'm wearing his goodness but it's apparent that I'm scared of / hearing that I might get stoned to death / or tortured, yes / I know its sin / so God come in, control this kid / totally / take over this

[Chorus]
For them to live is Christ, and to die is gain / but Father, when I think about it - I be too afraid / God, I'm wretched and I'm weak / totally take over me / I'm wretched, and I'm weak / totally take over me

[Verse 2]
God, your power is perfected in weakness, I know, but is this / a weakness that can glorify you - or just sin? / it's been clawing at my conscience, Lord, I pray that you'd be pleased / either with my full surrender or your power when I'm weak / God - I got no reason to fear because you're with me / if I suffer for your name, it's evidence the Spirit's in me / yes, it's better suffering for good than suffering for evil / but I'm feeble / and I'm weak / O God I need your / love to reach those / unreached people / yes, they desperately need to hear / the message be preached to ears / but stressing me here's / my attention to fearing / persecution / Lord, this music / is the nearest that I've been to truly doing what you meant / when you had told us to go / Kaptivated is the closest that I've gotten to / shamelessly / bringing the / Gospel to the lost, it's too / pathetic for me not to feel convicted / if I'm truly captivated God, I gotta live the mission / come and end this 'cause

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Yes, I'm grieved, and godly grief leads to repentance / yes, I'm ending / the presence of / this apathetic / sentiment / Father God, I pray you'd keep in my mind / Jesus' divine / promises to be by my side / at the end of the commission / yes, he'll be with all his missionaries / so I'll live it out, remembering that he's with me here, and he / has took my sin, now I don't serve it no more / and I don't work for no dough / yes now I worship the lord / O I can't forget about what happened at Calvary / it has to keep on / grabbing me / and having me here / at his feet / gazing at the Savior crucified, and gazing at him risen / my sin is foolish I'm in ruin, but he came and did it / of his own accord, Father, it's unspeakable joy / that you have freed me from my debts - now i can seek you in joy! / 'cause I love you / God, I repent and I trust / there ain't another I could follow, now my sin it is crushed / and now for me

[Chorus]
