Unless

By: Dam Stasi, Kickbend & Mesus

Poverty got me on my knee this ain’t monopoly
This is real life and Uncle Sam want his property
Tax, tax this, tax that, even tax gas
Do I give to Caesar or just cheat him on my tax brack?
Call me thievin’ but you’re eatin’ you don’t get it
You don’t live under these bridges during seasons that are frigid Lord,
where these cups of cold water in Your name?
Every dollar that we offer done without You is in vain
True story! Whose glory do I really labor for?
If I want the credit for the money I gave to the poor?
More rooms for the homeless isn’t really what we need
More rooms in our heart is the way we conquer greed

UNLESS the Lord builds the house, our laborers work in vain
More rooms in our heart is the way we conquer greed
UNLESS He watches over us, our watchmen stay awake in vain
Ooh ooh, in vain, UNLESS

I hear ’em screaming stop the violence, people dyin’ in our streets,
duck down Bullets flyin’ so they hire more police, shake down
Lock ’em up, give ’em time with no release
But instead of gettin’ better the vendettas just increase
Jesus! Please tell us will the killing ever cease?
Can’t convince ’em we need peace without the Prince of Peace True story!
Whose glory is our nation really livingʼ for?
One nation under God, but it isn’t anymore
Gotta know You ‘fore they know love but there’s no love
Red, white, and blue drowning in its own blood
But I know You up above, watching down over us
You can take that to the bank like “In God that we trust”

UNLESS the Lord builds the house, our laborers work in vain
You can take that to the bank like “In God that we trust”
UNLESS He watches over us, our watchmen stay awake in vain
Ooh ooh, in vain, UNLESS
(guitar solos)

UNLESS the Lord builds the house, our laborers work in vain
More rooms in our heart is the way we conquer greed
UNLESS He watches over us, our watchmen stay awake in vain
You can take that to the bank like “In God that we trust”
Ooh ooh, in vain, UNLESS
