Lyrics

Another night, Another day
I wish I had something left to say
Do you know, do you know the way
You see it's kinda hard in these prison chains

Before you disappear, before you walk away
What must I do to be saved
What must I do to be saved
What must I do to be saved

You wear that cross everyday
Can you help me out in Jesus name
I know I got it coming anyway
Won't you help me out, teach me how to pray

I see a lake full of water, won't someone stop this train
What must I do to be saved
What must I do to be saved
What must I do to be saved
What must I do to be saved

Not a new song but the melody is good and the writing itself is fine. I feel there is a potential for this song with a stronger demo.

Here's a song that asks a biblical and pertinent question: What must I do to be saved? It alludes to 2 bible stories: The Philippian jailer and the Ethiopian Eunuch; clever pairing of stories in one song. It also brings in a modern day cross wearer and questions the reality of their faith. Good instrumentation.
