about

This is a vocal rap remix of "Mystic Cave Zone" from Sonic 2, on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.

lyrics

*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
('cause they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*verse*
the pain of never living up to other's expectations
the pain of never getting to have life's celebrations
for making it big, or doing it right
and living what others call the good, good life
how could you even want to believe those things?
how could you even want to be so strange?
if that has a familiar ring, you know what I mean
cause approval means attaching so many strings

*b verse*
don't give up, don't give in
and leave the great place that you're in
I don't care if you think you're called
who do you think you are? the Apostle Paul?

*verse*
getting the approval of the ones who raised you
or seeking smiles from someone you crave to
please because of what they do
that's what matters, even though times are few
the times that you waited patiently
patiently for the world to see
just how good that you can be
at earning points for excellency

*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
(because they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*verse*
the pain of always knowing, that the way you're going
cannot reap what everybody else is sowing
if you get success, or gold stars overflowing,
then your friends and family will just be a-glowing
don't you want mainstream approval?
don't you want negativity removal?
what's weighing you down is this crazy lie
that God's got something special for your life

*b verse*
I know you say that God will provide
but it's always good to have a plan on your side
doing that ministry is reward-less
and chock full of riskiness

*verse*
why can't you just be normal, and live like
everyone else, just right in the light
I mean, the light that we are used to
not the one with this spiritual voodoo
what are we afraid of? this crazy love
a spiritual walk with its gifts, because
we can't handle something that new
even if, Lord Jesus, it comes from You

*bridge*
just go to college, get your bachelor's
or better yet, get your masters
you gotta be prepared to do quite a bit
to be successful in whatever you can get
be a good steward and work extra hard
and when you are older, you'll be glad in your heart
that you followed the wisdom of money and career
instead of the risky call of your Mighty Good Leader

*chorus*
So many things of which I'm afraid
(woke up in a sweat from a bad dream)
(and I don't know why, but it sure does seem)
which is why I wish I had stayed
(there's all these people just staring at me)
(because they don't like how I choose to be)
back where I was, even though I was made
(and now, it all just sends me reeling)
(even though I know it's just a feeling)
for a higher calling 'cause I don't like pain
(I can't shake it, 'cause I'm no good at dealing)
(with what all these people could be thinking)

*outro*
now I'm not saying don't take care of your family
I'm just saying there's greater things you gotta see
don't give up your calling, or the dream you've been given
'cause that's always the way that you should be livin'
