What’s Wrong With This Body?
Words and Music by: Larry Norman (Hey, it's nice to have so many nice people here tonight. It's really nice to, you know when you nice to people and they nice to you back. It's nice. And the Bible says that the heart is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things. Who could know it? I don't think we believe that. I don't think there's many people here who'd say, "Yeah, that sounds like me. That the heart is desperately wicked? Yeah, that's me. And deceitful above all things who can..? Yeah, that's me, yeah, that's me. No, I think we get the idea that we're really nice people and it doesn't matter if God sees our hearts the way they really are. We know differently. We, we good people. Yeah we do, we do bad things but, well it's kind of hard to explain because we are good. We just do bad things. What's wrong with this community? What's wrong with this world? What's, what's wrong with us who are brothers and sisters and believe in one God and in Spirit in Christ?) What's wrong with this body? This body is ill, It's full of disease and is dying You know this body needs healing And it needs to be filled We are to stand on our feet and start trying. If a man should divorce The wife of his youth Just to marry another woman Then his life goes off course And he strays from the truth Let his fall be to all mankind an omen. What's wrong with this body? This body is ill It's full of disease and is dying You know this body needs healing We need to be filled We got to stand on our feet and start trying. When a friend turns his back And grows jealous and cruel And tries to destroy your reputation If you gain what he takes If you pray for that friend And you concentrate on your own Salvation. C'mon, what's wrong with this body? This body is ill It's full of disease and is dying You know this body needs healing It needs to be filled We got to stand on our feet and start trying. What's wrong with this body? This body is ill It's full of disease and is dying You know this body needs healing It needs to be filled You got to stand on your feet and start trying. (You people are sick) What's wrong with this body? This body is ill It's full of disease and is dying You know this body needs healing And needs to be filled We got to stand on your feet You got to get on your knees You got to fall on your face and start dying!
